Valentine's lingerie. (Beauty & Style).

Pssst. Hey busy lady. Apparently in the midst of working 40-plus hours a week, in addition to for your, the kids and the house, you have neglected to remind the man in your life just how sensual you can be.

This Valentine's Day, be sure to send him a romantic hint by lounging in some of the latest styles in intimate apparel.

Begin your amorous endeavor by finding the right lingerie style for your specific body type. Let's face it girlfriend, lace teddies, garter belts and spiked heels always look good on digitally enhanced catalog models and department store mannequins. But these styles are not for all women, especially those endowed with curves.

But there's no need to fret; the beauty of at-home fashions is that there's something out there to accentuate every body type.

If you're a curvaceous cutie, a full-length satin nightgown with revealing side slits can really turn up the heat. You can also create a captivating look with empire-waist (fabric gathered below the breasts) lingerie or a sheer baby-doll negligee complete with built-in bra support. Lingerie in chiffon, silk and satin flatter fuller figures. If you're a slender Sister, feel free to model the garter-belt ensembles--they are, after all, made especially for your body type. If you want to accentuate your bosom, try body-hugging lingerie styles.

Sisters also can add fun accessories, such as glamorous feathered slippers and sensual boas. You also can lavishly spray on romantic perfumes and apply luxurious body oils, and experiment with glamorous hair additions and glitter to spice up your at-home wardrobe.

Here is a peek at some of the latest intimate fashions that will dazzle your sweetheart this Valentine's Day--and beyond.
