  • What is Sexy?

    what is sexy?

    What is sexy? And how do we obtain it?

    We all want to feel our best all the time, but especially when it comes to bedtime. There’s nothing worse than taking off your clothes and feeling like you need to put them back on. We think the absolute key to feeling your sexiest is confidence. Easier said than done, we know, but we’ve got a few ways to help you get there.

    The best way to start is by pampering yourself. Spend one day each month making yourself feel and look your best. This could include a mani/pedi, a facial, a massage, a wax, and anything else that helps keep your look up-to-date. You can even try getting your hair blown out or your makeup professionally done.

    With every part of you groomed to perfection, spend some time trying on and finding the perfect lingerie for your body. You want to draw attention to the parts of your body that you love. Finding the look that makes you feel the most confident can take time, but it’s well worth it in the end.

    At the end of the day, you want to feel good about yourself with or without clothes. Confidence can come to you in many different ways. A little extra pampering and some lingerie are just two of those ways to give you an extra boost.

    Let us help you find your best "sexy" by dropping into our store our browsing our beautiful selection of lingerie online. It may just give you that extra boost that you need!

  • Fall PJ Update

    Fall PajamasPajamas are one of those things that we leave until the last second to buy new. They often fall behind in our wardrobe updates because they’re almost never seen in public. But, when you think about it, one of the most important parts of everyday is getting the perfect night’s sleep. Sure, you could do that in an old tee shirt and worn out boxers, but why not feel your best in a new set of the perfect PJs. For sleep this Fall, we’re loving these looks:

    Sleep Shirts

    1. Skin’s Global Nomad Sleepshirt
    2. Hanro’s Garance Short Sleeve Gown
    3. Fleurt’s In the Mood for Lulu Sleep-shirt

    Loungewear for fall

    Loungewear isn’t only fit for getting into bed, though. You want to feel comfortable and relaxed all night up until your bedtime. There’s no better feeling than getting home from work after a long day and slipping into a plush set of sweats. This Fall, we’ve got the perfect home evening looks for you:

    1. PJ Salvage’s Shades of Gray Medallion Pants
    2. Beyond Yoga’s Up All Night Cowl Fleece Pullover
    3. Hanro’s Garance Pajamas


    While some nights are great for comfy loungewear while you watch a movie and drink a big glass of wine, some nights are meant for fun. And with the weather cooling down, you may want to help heat things up with some lingerie. Our Fall favorites are perfect for that special night in:

    1. Simone Perele’s Look Bodysuit
    2. L’Agent Provocateur’s Vanesa Chemise
    3. Fleurt’s Whispers of Love Chemise
    4. Stella McCartney’s Elena Reading Bodysuit

    And, of course, you may need to cover up a bit at some point in your night. To do so, we love our new Kapi Kimono from Natori and Global Nomad Robe from Skin!

    Not finding the pjs you are looking for in this post, no need to worry! We have tons of other styles on our website and in our store, so click here to get shopping!

  • Cheers To 40 Years

    Anniversary Celebration It’s official…we’re getting old. But this turning of age is one of the good kinds, thanks to all of our amazing clients. Not many businesses these days make it past 4 years, let alone 40. Our gratitude for the continuous support is exponential!

    We’ve learned a lot over the years about running a business, and what has been consistently vital to our success is maintaining relationships with our clients. When we first started Sylene 40 years ago, we hoped it would be a place where women could shop for lingerie without pressure or inhibitions. Today, we like to think that hope has become true of our store environment.

    As sisters, helping other women find their perfect fit has been extremely valuable for us. Not only do we love satisfying our clients, but we also love simply interacting with them on a daily basis. Lingerie is about more than just a skimpy slip, and we believe the shopping experience should be, as well. After 4 decades, we think it’s safe to say we are your experts in intimate style.

  • Travel Tips: How To Pack Like A Pro

    Kristin Cavallari Travel Traveling light can be hard, especially when you absolutely need every item in your closet with you…you know, just in case. With a ton of fun things planned out, whether it for a weekend or a week, you don’t want things that may be unnecessary taking up too much space, or any space at all. That’s why we’ve come up with some great travel clothes and accessories to make sure you get the most out of your suitcase!

    Travel Packing Tips

    Most importantly, you want to be comfortable when you travel, but you also want to look cute, too of course! Try pairing the Wolford Holly Leggings with the Cosabella Capri Swing Top and some Converse sneakers. The look is classic and comfy, and can even take you from one climate to another if you wear a tank top underneath.

    You’ll also want to bring along pajamas that are easy too pack, but still good for getting that perfect night’s sleep. We recommend Eberjey’s Heather Tunic.

    Bed isn’t the only time you want to be comfortable, though, so bring along the PJ Salvage Tie Dye set for lounging around your hotel room.

    Top your nightly look off with a fun Cicciabella eye mask.

    Last but not least, you’ve got to have the right places to pack everything from your makeup to your shampoo. For style and function, try the Trina Kelly Stripe Travel Pouch Set.

    Where will you be headed now that you are all packed and ready to go? We wish you safe travels and please share your photos in your Sylene gear on your next vacation by tagging us on Instagram!

  • Bras for Fall

    Fall is almost here, which means it’s time for a bra update! It’s good to replace your bras almost every season before they wear out and don’t offer as much support. Plus, who doesn’t want the most on-trend undergarments? This Fall we’re obsessed with cobalt blues, plum purples, and emerald greens. Sound familiar? We may or may not have gotten our inspiration from the stunning feathers of a peacock. These colors may seem impractical under your white tops and sheer blouses, but showing off your lace is still in even when the temperature drops. If not, save your fun bras as a little weekend treat! Plus, you can never go wrong with classic black and nude. Shop our new Fall bras online or in our store now so come September you’re ready to flaunt your feathers!

  • 5 Tips For Your Best Night’s Sleep

    pose with button-down

    We all know that horrible feeling of being exhausted and still somehow not being able to fall asleep or sleep all the way through the night. Whether it’s your to-do list for the next day or an upcoming work presentation you need to nail, something playing over and over in your mind makes it impossible to get any rest. Luckily, all of us at Sylene have been there a few times, so we came up with our 5 Tips For Your Best Night’s Sleep.



    Lafco Candles

    It’s important to unwind after a long day and put your mind at ease. To best do this, light some candles around a bathtub and enjoy for at least 15 minutes.

    Get cozy


    Natori PJs

    Once you’ve calmed down from your hectic day, you’ve got to slip into something comfortable to hang out in. We recommend one of our pajama sets, with a long-sleeve top and pants, to ensure you’re nice and warm while you focus your mind on something simple, like a sitcom.

    Get comfortable



    After your bath and a good TV show, change into some pajama shorts and a tee shirt or tank top. You want to be comfortable while you sleep and being too warm can cause you to wake in the night. You also don’t want to be too cold, so make sure your covers provide enough heat.

    Settle in

    Sleep Mask-2

    Sleep Masks

    Once you’re in your bed, take a few deep breaths as you settle into your best sleeping position. A lot of times falling asleep is a mental game. A sleep mask can help tell your body to relax and your mind to settle down.

    Be patient


    Bed Sock

    Sometimes it takes a bit of time to fall into that deep slumber we’re all looking for, but don’t be discouraged. Be patient and continue to breath deeply and soon you’ll stop thinking about everything you need to do, or forgot to do, because you’ll be asleep.

    Sleep tight!

  • How To Extend the Life of Your Swimwear


    How To Extend the Life of Your Swimwear

    August has just begun, which unfortunately means summer is winding down. It also means that you still need to get at least another three weeks out of your swimsuits. If you’re like us, and always aiming to be in a bathing suit all weekend, then you know the struggle of keeping your suits looking fresh all summer. We know it can be hard to maintain that just-bought vibrancy, so we’ve come up with a few tips to extend the life of your swimwear.

    1. Rinse your bathing suit in fresh water before entering the pool or ocean.
    2. Do not machine-wash your suits; you should wash them by hand.
    3. Wash your bathing suits in cold, clear water after every use.
    4. After you wash it, roll your bathing suit up in a clean, dry towel and squeeze. Any moisture left in your suit for an extended period of time can be damaging.
    5. Don’t dry your bathing suits out in the sun, let them air dry. It may take a little longer, but the hot summer sun can bleach out those bright colors.
    6. Don’t dry your suits in a dryer or spinner. Any machine can cause tears and break down the fabric.
    7. When air drying, don’t hang your wet suit on a hanger. The hanging will cause chemicals to settle in the bottom of the bathing suit, creating a worn out look. Hang your wet suit over a chair, or lay it flat.
    8. Rotate your suits. Having more than one bathing suit is a must anyway, but now at least you have some sort of excuse.

    Bralette Styling Tips - Straight From The Celebrities

    These days it seems like celebrities are showing us more and more. While a nip-slip is still a major “oops!” in the business, bralettes are making it easier and easier to wear those revealing tops. Without ruining what your top has to offer, bralettes add a little something extra, and keep you right on trend. Here are our 5 favorite ways to wear a bralette!

    Add some fun details to any plain top

    Beyonce Bralette

    Kendall Jenner Bralette

    Queen Bey has killer style and she certainly knows how to style a bralette. This look is super simple to replicate and looks good on almost any body type. Just find a pretty bra that is worth showing off and then layer a loose fitting muscle tank overtop for a casual and chic look.

    Keep It Simple In Lace 

    Karrueche Bralette


    Never in a million years would you think of wearing a bra as a top but things have changed and there are ways to pull off this trend without baring it all. Pair a lacy bralette with a high waisted skirt or pants for a more pulled together look. Avoid showing your bellybutton if you can, it helps give the bralette more of a top look. 

    Go Bold And Add Just A Jacket

    Sarah Hyland Bralette

    Spice up a conservative blazer with a peekaboo from your bralette underneath. It's an easy way to add style and edge to your look without looking like you just came from the office.

    Stay Covered Up Under A Sheer Top



    Show you're not afraid of being bold in this new style. While sheer may sound a little risque, a bralette is the perfect way to keep covered where you need to be. It's the perfect upgrade from a plain tank top.


    Bralettes As Tops

    Sylene Collage


    Show some skin with this new top trend. Pair your bralette with a high-waisted pencil skirt for a night out, or with jean cut-offs for a fun weekend look.


    Now that you are inspired to show off a little bra in your next outfit, you will need to update your lingerie drawer. Shop our bralettes by clicking here and feel free to come in for any styling suggestions!
