Lingerie Shopping Tips For Men

Girls love to receive lingerie gifts and buying a tantalising new piece of lingerie can be an exciting and rewarding experience for the male lingerie buyer. However, a recent poll conducted by a popular new lingerie brand has shown that shopping for that perfect lingerie gift can, at times, be a very daunting prospect for a gentleman. With such a wide variety of lingerie designs, fabrics and sizes to choose from, it is no wonder that it can sometimes feel, well, simply overwhelming!

Tip #1: Find out her bra size, underwear size and lingerie size.

It should be very easy to find out a woman's lingerie size, underwear or bra size and I suggest that you do one or more of the following to ensure that your special lingerie gift fits your partner's height, size and body shape perfectly:

Ask her - This is a very simple and almost obvious tip, but you may be surprised that many gentlemen are still nervous about asking a lady for her bra or underwear sizes.

Ask a close female friend or a close female relative - Yes boys! Girls usually know their close girlfriends' bra and underwear sizes! Exploring the reasoning behind this would require me to start a whole new blog post so I will move on.

Have a sneak peek in her lingerie closet or draw - Now, I would not usually encourage snooping around in any ladies drawers or cabinets but under this very exceptional circumstance I am confident that she may eventually forgive you. If you decide to use this method, I suggest that you check the sizes of the newest items, and you should buy the most common size. For example, if a woman has six bras and one is in a size 34B, and five are in a size 34C, I would recommend that you buy a size 34C bra.

Tip #2: Discover her usual style but bear in mind that you should BOTH enjoy the lingerie gift.

You do not need to buy a woman exactly the same or even a similar style, colour or brand of lingerie that she has in her closet BUT if your lady is unadventurous with fashion or if she absolutely LOVES a particular lingerie style or colour you should stay as close as possible to her usual lingerie style in order to avoid buying her a disappointing lingerie gift.

Aim purchase a lingerie gift that you can both enjoy, mostly a lingerie gift that you would love to see her wearing. However, remember not to take this freedom of choice too far!

Tip #3: Decide on the finishing touches. Do you need that extra accessory or gift wrapping?

A seductive pair of stockings or a suspender belt with a new bra and underwear set will complete the desired look and make your lingerie gift that little bit more special. If you opt for a lingerie set as a gift, I would suggest that you only buy matching lingerie sets and NEVER fall for the temptation to mix and match - There is nothing worse than having a random bra or brief in my lingerie closet that does not match anything else I own!

Tip #4: If you are still in doubt,  why not purchase a Charm and Lace Boutique gift card.
