My online search for a Valentine’s Day-themed item led to plenty of results that had me checking my shoulder to make sure a coworker hadn’t paid an unexpected visit. But eventually, I turned up this oh-so-perfect scarlet chemise. Your sweetheart will approve of the snippets of lace and cute contrasting bow detail—sexy without crossing into trashy territory. And thanks to ultra-soft rayon and an A-line shape, you won’t be itching, adjusting, and stressing when you should be romancing.
