Here's What To Wear When You Know You're About To Get Laid

There's an art to “third date” dressing.

Please note that by “third date,” we're merely referring to the first time you sleep with a new partner, be it the first date, third date or your wedding night.

Regardless of when you take the next step in your new relationship, it's important to dress accordingly if you have an inkling that tonight's the night you go all the way.

Why does it matter? Frankly, sleeping with a new person is typically awkward, and it will only make it more awkward if you get stuck in your dress, have to discreetly remove your Spanx, get twisted up in your shirt… you get the picture.

With that said, here are some of the best and worst things to wear on you and your partner's big night.

Don't wear complicated undergarments.

Might as well start from the bottom. I speak from experience when I say you don't want to wear complicated underwear the first time you go all the way. Guys have enough trouble with regular bras, and they'll only get more flustered if you've got crisscrossed bra straps or weird clasps going on. Make it easy for your man so he can feel confident and smooth.

Skip the shapewear.

On a similar note, it's probably best to leave your Spanx and epic push-up bra in the closet. Why? For one, you'll be more comfortable if you're not squeezed into a sausage casing all night. Plus, it's hard to feel sexy when you're obsessing over your problem areas.

Instead, wear something that highlights your assets so you can own your body!

Do wear simple, sexy underwear.

So what should you wear underneath your outfit? A simple bra and pantie set will do you just fine. Don't stress about whether or not they match — honestly, your partner will probably be focused on other things.

Admittedly, the exception to these guidelines is if you're really trying to wow your partner and opt for a garter or other sexy lingerie. Do you, girl, but practice getting out of that contraption — having to solve a Mensa puzzle before you get get busy might put a damper on things.

Don't wear something super tight.

I'm all about skin-tight clothes, but there's definitely such a thing as too tight. It's pretty awkward when your partner waits while you contort yourself into unnatural positions to get out of your skinny jeans.

By the same thread, you might want to steer clear of tights, especially since they typically leave a weird indent around your stomach.

Don't choose glitchy clothes.

If you're anything like me, you probably have some clothes with sticky zippers or loose buttons or ones that are held together with safety pins.

If it has the potential to malfunction, it should probably take a raincheck on date night. You don't want to have trouble unzipping or have your partner get stabbed by a stray pin during foreplay.

Do wear something that comes off easily.

As the previous points allude to, it's best to wear clothing that comes off easily if you're planning to shed it all with your lover. Skip the complicated outfits and getups with several layers — opt for clothing that's relatively easy to get on and off.

Do put on something that makes you feel good.


OK, your skinny jeans, sexy criss-cross top and fancy lingerie are out — what should you wear for the big night? Bottom line is that you should pick something you're comfortable in, something that makes you feel confident and desirable.

Maybe it's a sundress and flats; a sweater, jeans and heels; or a skirt, cute top and wedges. Or perhaps it's something different entirely! Your partner likes you the way you are, so just be you.

Finally, don't go overboard on your makeup.

When you've got the perfect sexy, simple outfit laid out, the last thing to do is apply your makeup. Go for a look you've perfected, but opt on the more conservative side.

Leave the false lashes on your vanity, and don't go too heavy on the eye makeup. Sex can get pretty messy, and you don't want to wake up in the morning with your makeup everywhere. If you can, choose waterproof products or ones you know will stay put no matter where the night takes you.

What are you waiting for? Get out there and consummate your love! Have fun, and be safe!
