How To Choose Valentine's Day Lingerie

Dec 29, 2007
Elegant, sexy lingerie adds excitement to any relationship. As the next big holiday approaches, Vallentine's Day, it's time to start thinking about gifts. Lingerie is pleasing to both men and women. The number of sizes, styles, and can be bewildering to the novice. Here are some guidelines and suggestions to steer you through your next lingerie purchase.

Check the sizes of bras and clothing when your wife or girlfriend is not looking. Size is a tricky subject. Items that are too small may flatter her ego but they won't achieve the effect either of you hope for. Buying lingerie too large may be offensive. That's a trap you don't want to accidentally step into.

Lingerie comes in a wide variety of styles and fabrics. Consider your significant other's personality. Traditional colors for Valentines Day are pink and red, but black may be a more appropriate choice for a woman who seldom wears bright colors. Floral prints are nice for very feminine women. Pinks flatter fairer skin whereas reds flatter olive complexions. Good choices for lingerie fabrics include lace, satin, chiffon, and silk. Watch out for cheap scratchy materials and shoddy workmanship. Lingerie should feel soft and luxurious and have a bit of stretch. It should not feel like you bought it on sale at Wal-Mart. Above all you want to avoid being cheap.

Lingerie comes in flattering styles for every body type and the average woman is somewhat self-conscious about her body. Flirty baby doll night gowns flatter almost everyone as do waist cinchers, corsets and garter belts. A fuller-busted woman may prefer a little support in the top. Smaller busts are flattered by push-up and padded bras.

When you begin your search for the perfect lingerie gift you will find that the choices in your local department stores are limited. On-line stores will have more variety, styles, and sizes. Read reviews as you would of any on-line merchant and review the shipping and return policies.
