How To Buy Lingerie For Your Woman That Doesn't Get You In The Doghouse

Dec 11, 2007
Men need to be careful when buying lingerie as a gift for a woman. In most cases, the woman will be pleased if you choose for her a thoughtful and flattering gift. In most cases, the woman will be offended if you choose for her a slinky, sexy barely there piece of lingerie that is more for you than her. Lingerie is a very intimate gift and should be purchased for a woman with whom you are intimate terms. It should also be purchased with her best interests in mind, instead of yours. There is a middle ground between white cotton panties and crotchless panties. Now you have to find it.

Prior to buying lingerie as a gift for a woman, make note of what type of lingerie she often wears as well as her personality and body type. Is your wife or girlfriend slender? What does she often wear to bed? One combination that every woman likes is a camisole and tap pants. Tap pants are loosely fitting panties that flatter just about every figure and camisole tops have spaghetti straps and are also loosely fitting. This combination is both sexy well as comfortable and most women enjoy wearing such lingerie. You can choose from a variety of different fabrics and colors for your wife or girlfriend.

If you are considering purchasing a nightgown, you have several options. Nightgowns come in a variety of lengths as well as fabrics. Some come with matching robes. These types of long nightgowns with matching robes are often called peignoirs. They come in silk, chiffon, satin and other fabrics. The nightgowns and robes usually fall to the floor and if you wife or girlfriend is tall, they are very flattering. The nightgowns are sexy, but elegant and the woman to whom you give such a gift will be very grateful that you thought about her.

For those who have girlfriends who are short, a two piece silk chemise slip nightgown and robe makes a perfect gift. Women with less height tend to look better in shorter ensembles and most women love the feel of silk against their skin. This can be a great gift for the woman you love.

To make your girlfriend or wife feel very special, buy some French lingerie. French lingerie by various designers is usually made out of the finest material and lasts a lot longer than lingerie sold in inexpensive mall shops. For quality French lingerie, you will most likely have to go to a high end department store and ask the clerk to help you.

Prior to purchasing lingerie for a woman, you should find out what size she wears. You do not want to get her an extra large if she is a large. Take a look at the tags on her clothes. Unless it is fitted, most lingerie comes in small, medium, large and extra-large. You are better off to guess small than guess big if you cannot find out her size.

When buying lingerie as a gift for a woman, a man should ask himself what he hopes to accomplish. Hopefully, he hopes that the gift will please his sweetheart and she will be thrilled to wear it. He should keep her comfort in mind as well as her tastes. If she continually wears merry widow corsets and garter belts, then it is okay to purchase this sort of garment for her, providing you know her correct size. If, however, you wife or girlfriend sleeps in sweats or shorts, you will be doing both of you a favor by purchasing some quality lingerie that is both flattering to her as well as comfortable and sexy.
