God created men and women to be attracted to one another not only for mutual assistance (that is, as a "helpmeet"), but also for both physical (sexual) pleasure and for the orderly propagation of the human race.

As long as the consummation of that attraction (which such actions as the wearing of provocative lingerie would be designed to foster) occurs among Christians within the framework of the formal commitment of marriage, and as long as (even within that framework) neither spouse views the other merely as a means of sexual gratification, with no consideration of the spouse's personal dignity or desires, I see no limitations with regard to the type of clothing that may be worn (or not worn) in that context.
