Whether a special occasion gift, a surprise treat or something by way of an apology, lingerie is a timeless present. Shopping for a loved one can be daunting and your choice will speak volumes, but we’re here to help you get it right.
It may sound obvious, but start your honourable endeavour by checking you know the correct size before shopping. A stealthy sneak around in your partner’s drawers to see what size she normally wears should do the trick, but if you’re still not confident about bra sizes consider opting for some beautiful nightwear.
Bras and briefs come in many different shapes as well as sizes, so try to identify if there is a theme in her lingerie collection. Some women like a balconette bra (uplifting), while others may prefer a plunge style (for cleavage), or even a non-wired bra. Similarly, some women like a fuller brief or hotpant, while others may tend to wear a thong more regularly. Being in tune with her taste will earn you major brownie points! [Tip: for a detailed guide to the language of lingerie check out our Lingerie Glossary].
Think about what kind of style you are looking for: something seductive, elegantly feminine, or more minimalist. Remember that sexy lingerie isn’t confined to red corsets and suspenders but is whatever she feels confident in. Treat your darling to something she might not necessarily purchase for herself by completing a set of lingerie with the matching nightwear.
