21 Best Lingerie Pieces Made for Athletic Body Types

We’re obsessed with the way a beautiful lingerie set can elevate our mood! Even if you don’t have a hot date on the calendar, making yourself feel fabulous by wearing a slinky slip or matching bra and panty set is a major self-care moment.

We like to shop for lingerie in the same fashion we shop for apparel — we use our body type as a template. For athletic shapes, it’s all about playing up the bust and enhancing the waistline for an hourglass silhouette. You can find both separates and full lingerie sets which will create that illusion, and we’ve rounded up a slew of incredible options ready for you to shop below!

Push-Up Bras

Our Absolute Favorite: Adding some lift to your bust is an easy way to offset the boxier athletic shape, but there may be a few features you want to avoid when picking out a push-up bra. Too much of a prominent square neckline may make shoulders appear broad, so you want to go for scoop-necks like this bra — or the classic V-shape. And if you can find them, halters and racerback straps are oh-so-fierce!

Corsets and Bustiers

Blidece Women’s Corset Bustier Set

Our Absolute Favorite: Corsets were originally created centuries ago to enhance the feminine figure, which is why they’re so fitting for athletic shapes! We picked out this classic-yet-modern version as our top pick because it laces up in the back — so you can truly snag a custom fit by making it tighter and looser to. Giving yourself a more cinched-in waist and hourglass shape can be done with corsets like this, but bustiers are also perfect for the job!

Garter Belts and Sets

Ningsige Lace Suspender Black Garter Belt

Our Absolute Favorite: Garter belts are timeless pieces, particularly for athletic body types. They can enhance a waist with minimal effort! Just like you would use a wide belt to give a looser dress or top more shape, a garter belt can do that for your frame. You can find so many sets which come with them included, but if you already have a matching bra and panty duo you want to spice up, pick up this beauty! It’s seriously affordable and comes in a handful of colors so you can scoop up the exact hue you need.

More styles we love: 

Babydoll Slips

Seven 'til Midnight Lace Babydoll Chemise & G-String

Seven ’til Midnight Lace Babydoll Chemise & G-String

Our Absolute Favorite: The shape of a babydoll-style slip dress, nightie or teddy works, because it instantly creates an hourglass silhouette! The flare of the skirt extends from the bust to give you the illusion of having wider hips, and highlights the chest at the same time. As long as you buy a slip with this aesthetic, you’ll be good to go — but we especially love this sheer style which comes with matching lace undies!
