Every woman has a favorite lingerie colour of her own and that she loves to wear and feel comfortable and confident in. So when it comes to choosing a lingerie colour, what does it convey about her personality, the type of lover she is and much more. Psychologists have carried out ‘n’ number of researches and studies to find exactly that. So next time you go shopping for a bra or an underwear, give some thought to what colour you choose.

Based on clinching studies, psychologists and psycho-analysts have come pretty close in predicting the kind of lover a woman is by simply looking at the colour of inner wear and lingerie she prefers to wear.

Red means you’re not shy but if you opt for pink, you would never take the lead – white is for willing learners.

During those very studies, a poll was conducted and it was found that 72% of women now opt for nude or flesh toned lingerie when shopping  shunning the classic white and black briefs or fancy lacey sets  and Debenhams. Supporting this find is the fact that the nude color sales has shown a 38% increase year-on-year.

It seems celebrities may be responsible for the change in the nation’s taste in lingerie – with Hollywood siren Eva Mendes revealing recently that she feels most sexy in ‘either nude or very basic underwear’ and pop starlet Katy Perry choosing a simple nude bra and knickers above sexy lace to wear on the front of Rolling Stone magazine.
