Roses, chocolate and Valentine’s Day seem to go hand in hand, but you can’t forget about the sexy on Valentine’s night. Even if your typical bedtime attire consists of a tank and cheeky boyshorts, this is the time to switch it up. Our top picks range from barely there tops, to seductive one-pieces to over the top provocative sets. You could pay hundreds for the finest silk and lace, but we found 10 options that won’t tug too hard on your purse strings.

Von Follies by Dita Von Teese Bustier ($95,

Bring out your inner pin-up girl and treat your guy to a tantalizing show. The lace with contrasting mesh sides is flattering and cinches the waist, while the under wire gives major support. Utilize the garter straps and pair this with fishnets or back seam stockings.

Blu Moon Silk Romper ($130,

This romper is strictly for one-on-one time, adorned with a sexy low cut back and a deep V-neck lace panel. The tie-dyed print is also a nice departure from the typical black, pink or red lingerie.

Topshop Balconette Bra and Lace Knickers ($52,

Black mesh and blush lace creates a delicate, yet sensual look.

Flexees by Maidenform Body Briefer ($62,

You usually don’t want your boo seeing you in shapewear, but you might just change your mind. This all black number smooths your waist and stomach, but even better, it actually looks like lingerie.

Forever 21 Convertible Lace Corset Bra ($15,

Sexy meets functional, as the corset straps can be worn five different ways to accommodate any look you wear (strapless, halter, one shoulder, etc.) earlier in the night.

Avon Printed Lace Cami and Boyshort ($20,

It’s not as revealing as some sets, but you can keep it comfortable and cool in a lavender printed camisole and matching shorts.

Hanky Panky After Midnight Bralette ($44,

Leave absolutely nothing to the imagination with an open cup fringe bra. It’s all you need to get his heart racing… but the matching thong will more than likely make his heart stop.

Topshop Satin Body Suit ($60,

Beyoncé has countless bodysuits, so it’s only fitting you have at least one. Crank up “Partition” and put on a show that just may leave you two drunk in love. 

H&M Quilted Satin Bustier ($35,

Pair this satin and lace bustier with your favorite bright skivvies. You can even rock the corset under a conservative blazer for dinner and dancing, to give your guy a peek at what’s to come later in the evening.

In Bloom by Jonquil Satin Chemise ($40,

Anything hot pink can look a bit girly, but accents like black lace and a high slit make this chemise sultry. And it’s super easy to slip into (and, more importantly, out of).
