I would try to make the wording on the invite sound as personal as possible, maybe even come up with some theme. Sorry I am not that creative to give great ideas, but I have heard of people having lingerie showers specifically.

I think that when you invite people to a shower, you mention that it is a shower and not, say, a tea party, on the invitations.  So you could write “lingerie shower” if you wanted or just let that part be word-of-mouth.  But given that showers are part of the culture, and the point of a shower is the gifts (unlike the wedding), it’s rude IMO to risk letting a guest think it’s another kind of party and be without a gift.  And if they don’t want to come to a lingerie shower then they can decline in advance and not sit there and be uncomfortable.  Some people say that you can put registry info on a shower invite where you wouldn’t on a wedding invite, but I’m not sure about that…
