Lingerie Buying Guide for Men
Know her size
If there’s one thing that makes underwear buying a minefield, it’s sizes, look through her underwear drawer and check her size.
Choose the right colour
The only thing to really remember here is do not buy bright red (prostitute) or cream (wedding lingerie). Base the rest on the colours your girlfriend usually wears otherwise go for black, it looks good on everyone.
This isn’t necessarily an exercise in what suits your girlfriend’s body shape, but what she feels comfortable in. Look at the underwear she regularly wears. If it’s thongs, buy a sexy version of that. If she wears proper knickers, opt for that shape. Check whether her bras have padding – if most do, make sure the one you buy does as well.
Don’t play it safe
Lingerie is supposed to be sexy so don’t under any circumstances buy something she can wear every day. If it looks like her normal underwear, you haven’t got the right stuff. But don’t go too far the other way.
How to get it right
When in doubt buy a gift certificate. Make a point of writing something meaningful on the card and offer to choose the lingerie with her to make it a more personal experience.
