A Few Tips For Men When Buying Lingerie

Dec 13, 2007
If the thought of stepping one foot into a sexy lingerie store makes you break into a cold sweat, take heart, because you are not alone. For most men, buying any kind of clothing item for their wife or partner is more that just a little intimidating, and buying underwear, in a store full of women shopping for bras, and underwear and sexy lingerie, is well, even more than just a little intimidating. That is why there are online lingerie retailers, sites where you can choose, point, click, and buy, without ever having to step foot into one of those boutique shops where headless mannequins clad in bras and panties, and the smell of lotion predominates.

Of course, the trick is to make sure that you not only get the right size, but that you choose lingerie that she will be comfortable in, and enjoy wearing as well. The best way to accomplish this is to take note of any lingerie that she already has. Note the type, cut, and color, and of course, the size, and use this as a guide to help you choose the perfect new set for her. If she does not have any lingerie or if you want to truly ensure that she is happy with the sexy lingerie that you buy for her, pay attention to her style and personality. Is she outgoing or reserved? Is she comfortable with her body as a whole, or are there certain parts of her body that she does not like to reveal? These are important things to take note of.

When it comes to measurements, you could just ask her to measure herself, of course, but a more tactful way to make sure that the products you order will be the correct size and fit is to note her dress size, bra size, and panty size, and then use these, along with the manufacturers chart to help you determine which sizes to order.

Keep in mind that distinctions of Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, and plus sizing as well, varies, which is why you will want to be sure that you do not assume that because she is a Medium in one size, she will be a medium in another. If she has a larger chest, bra sizing can be difficult, but it is not impossible. It truly is best to air on the side of caution and size up, not down, in this area. For example, if you are purchasing a bustier, get her a large instead of a medium if she is a D cup, even if you are sure that the medium size will fit her everywhere else.

Regardless of the type of sexy lingerie that you choose, remember to always not the stores return policy, just in case, and take comfort in the fact that she will be very impressed that you put so much effort into a gift, even if, by chance, she decides to exchange it.
