Flowers, chocolates and lingerie are foolproof Valentine’s Day gifts, but only one of them lasts well after the day of love is over. The latter is sure to elevate your boo’s heart rate and make you feel sexy. Of course you can throw on any red or heart-printed negligee or you can shop for pieces that accentuate your best attributes and provide solutions for any minor flaws. They’re perfect for V-Day or any night of the week when you want to turn up the heat in the bedroom. And because you shouldn’t have to pay a million to look and feel your best (and mostly because you won’t be wearing them for long), everything is less than $75 and ranges in size from 2 to 28. Take your pick from the sexy selections!

For the Petite Frame

Frederick’s of Hollywood Lace Shelf Bralette and Strappy Thong Set ($36,

The demi bra gives smaller breasts a boost, and the triple-strap thong creates the illusion of hips on a boyish frame.

For the Curvy Diva

Lane Bryant Polka Dot Corset ($64.50,

Accent that hourglass figure in this playful, yet alluring corset.

For the Buxom Lady

Apt. 9 Babydoll Chemise and G-String Set ($23.99,

With a built-in bra and underwire, you’ll have plenty of support, and the free-flowing chemise is forgiving for a full tummy.

For Every Woman

Dreamgirl Sheer Thigh Highs with Back Seams ($6,

You’ll have legs for days when you pair these stockings (the back seam elongates your leg) with your favorite patent pumps.
