We know how daunting buying lingerie can be. Our top tips will help you to make sure you find the perfect gift this Valentine's Day.
Find her size
Whatever happens – don’t guess! The problem is easily solved! Take a look in her underwear drawer and check the sizes.
Check the size of her knickers, usually these will say S, M, L, etc. or 10, 12, 14, etc.
Bras will say 32, 34, 36, etc. followed by b, c, d, dd, etc.
Obviously try to do this when there is no chance of being interrupted – it may be awkward to explain what you are doing!
Work out what she likes
Ladies underwear particularly bras are much more complicated than a mans, this is because we have different types of bras to compliment different styles of dress as well as suiting different figures and creating different shapes.
Note her starting size. These can change from brand to brand & style to style. Make a note of the different sizes & brands she favour
Colour is key
The colour she wears on a daily basis can easily be translated to her lingerie wardrobe. Black is always a safe option but lingerie comes in many beautiful colours and prints so bear in mind her individual style and preferences.
Keep it classy
Although she may have worn very “saucy” underwear for you, this was her choice, she wants you to see her as classy so your best bet is to stick to luxurious detailing, beautiful lace, rich colours and sensuous fabrics – something that looks expensive.
Ladies tend to stick to practical undies when buying themselves underwear so wow her with something gorgeous and glamourous.
