For any man buying a woman lingerie can be a very challenging experience. However, the time spent on this task can really show a woman just how much they mean to the man in their lives. To help you men we offer below the top ten tips for buying women’s lingerie and which should make this task so much simpler in the future.
Tip 1 – Although you may think a woman looks great wearing a thong unfortunately there are plenty of women who aren’t comfortable baring their bottom in such lingerie. Rather what you should be doing is actually choosing lingerie which not only they feel comfortable in but also which flatters the areas of their body that they like.
If for example the woman you are buying for has nice legs then buy her a baby doll set or short chemise which helps to show them off better.
Tip 2 – It is crucial that when buying women’s lingerie a man knows her bra size. Unfortunately if you get this item wrong it isn’t going to be something that she will enjoy wearing. If it is going to be a surprise gift then without her realizing it check out what size is in the bra’s she wears currently or even ask one of her friends. But if it isn’t going to be a surprise present then ask her directly and only order such lingerie items if you are absolutely sure you are going to get exactly what she needs.
Tip 3 – It is important that you know exactly what body shape your partner has as what you may not realize each piece of lingerie will sit differently on each woman. The shapes that women tend to be are pear where they are small on top and then taper out towards the hips. The upside down pear where a woman has smaller hips but wider shoulders. The hour glass figure is where everything is evenly proportioned. By knowing her body shape you will be better able to select items of lingerie that will flatter it.
Tip 4 – Another thing you need to be aware of is the kind of personality your partner has. If she is an outgoing person then you can choose lingerie that is a little more exciting and daring. Instead of sticking to the norm go for things with more outrageous colours or even for animal print styles. As for the more demure type of women stick to the classics that come in subtle shades and colours. What you should never do is purchase clothes that you think that they should be wearing to make you happy.
Tip 5 – You need to look carefully at the colours of the lingerie you buy for your partner and again take into consideration the kind of woman she is. If your partner is a brunette then she is quite capable of wearing the much bolder colours such as emerald greens or deep purples, whilst a blonde is able to wear more effectively lingerie that comes in pastel shades.
Tip 6 – Think about how the lingerie is going to feel against her skin when she is wearing it. Okay lace may look nice and sexy but can be very uncomfortable as it can irritate the skin. Ideally it is far better to go for materials which are more tactile and feel more comfortable when worn such as silk, satin or velvet.
Tip 7 – It is a good idea to find out what makes of lingerie your partner enjoys wearing and if you can purchase items from their ranges. The most favoured types of lingerie that many women enjoy wearing are those made by La Perla, Agent Provocateur and Victoria’s Secrets. If you can purchase items from these ranges and you can’t go very wrong in getting your partner a present that she will enjoy wearing for a long time to come.
Tip 8 – Although you may not think it a good idea but get her friends involved as they will really be able to tell you what she likes wearing. They will be able to give you a clearer idea of what styles of lingerie she likes to wear so you don’t make any mistakes, but also they will know which companies she prefers.
Tip 9 – If you are going to be purchasing any lingerie on line it is best not to purchase through an auction site although the prices may be less. Rather by going through a reputable online store they often provide a guarantee where goods can be returned as long as they are not worn and they can either be replaced or a refund given.
Tip 10 – Yes you have brought your woman some wonderful lingerie but don’t just give as it is instead spend time making sure that you package it correctly first. It is important that you make the gift look as pretty as possible and always line the inside of the present with some nice tissue paper that is wrapped around it. Along with the lingerie why not put another small gift into the package such as some jewellery or perfume.
Above we have offered ten top tips for buying women’s lingerie. Keep these in mind and your girlfriend and partner may choose to provide you with your own special viewing of what you have brought them before you go out one evening.
