Here are some tips for you based on your body type:

Apple: Wear babydolls. They'll show off your nice legs and small booty. The best-fitting lingerie for you, Apple, tends to accentuate your ample bosom and slim legs while discreetly covering your tummy.
Pear: Wear an A-line chemise or gown that hits below the booty to create sleek lines. Pair a sheer camisole or bra with a boyshort. It will highlight your upper assets while providing coverage for your curvaceous caboose.
Hourglass: Show off your curves by wearing bra and panty sets and body-hugging teddies or chemises.
Sporty: Wear a two-piece set, such as cropped camisole with a thong, in dark or contrasting colors, to give you the illusion of curves.
