Last week, I went out wearing my little black dress that I love so much. As I was riding in the car on the way to dinner, I got to thinking about how sexy I felt. There are things in my life that I like to have, wear, and use that make me feel particularly sexy. Below is a list of things we here at BetterSexEd think every woman needs to consider owning:

1. Little Black dress aka LBD. You want an LBD that you feel amazingly good in… it’s your go-to when you want to feel well-dressed. Not too short or showing too much cleavage (this will take away from the versatility of the dress). Find something that has a material that feels good to your skin and to your touch. You want to feel great wearing it to a cocktail party and a bar then to your partner’s folks’ house. Spend a little money on this, you won’t regret it!

2. Sexy lingerie. There is nothing better than being at work (or school) and knowing that underneath your clothes, you have on killer lingerie. Even if you hate your outfit that day, you will love what you are wearing underneath. Plus, it is nice when you take your clothes off for that special someone (or someones), to have something that you feel like a million bucks in. Every person will have a different idea of what is sexy for them, get creative and find what turns you on.

3. Good overnight bag. When you head over to your lover’s house, it is so great to show up with an overnight bag holding all your goodies. A shopping bag will work, yes, but you will feel more more pulled together with a nice meant-for-sleeping-over bag.  If you do not have one yet, make it a priority to go buy yourself something you like. It’s fun and easy to get something. I prefer something not too big that can easy get over my shoulder, is easy to close and has enough room for my sexy toys, next day’s outfit, and shower items.

4. Sexy heels. I once heard the term “come fuck me heels” and it stuck with me. People have shoes that make people want to fuck them?! I couldn’t wait to buy a pair, and every woman needs one. When we are in heels, the posture in our body is actually different. We stand up a little straighter and hold more of a presence. These shoes can be slutty as possibly or elegant or anything in between, you just need to feel sexy! So sexy people want to fuck you and you know it.

5. Comfy, cozy and sexy sleeping clothes. We all have days that when we come home all we want to do is crawl into bed. Get some sleepy clothes that make you feel sexy. At first, I didn’t realize the importance of this, yet I am so happy that I do have things that I love to put on. I prefer little nities that are silky and girly, find something that you like! Sweat pants are great, but they will make you feel frumpy.

6. A fabulous accessory. Whatever your style is, there is a piece of jewelry, hat, scarf, or pair of gloves that compliments it.

7. Floss and mints. Nobody looks good chewing gum. Floss and mints are a better way to keep your mouth looking and feeling clean when you’re on the go. It’ll also let you focus on the conversation, rather than wondering if your breath stinks.

Not everyone will want all these items and we are not trying to promote endless consumerism. Yet, these items are things I turn to and I hope you find this list useful. I once had a friend say: “just act like you are wearing a dress made of gold”. So when in doubt, just imagine that you are literally enveloped in gold.
