tips for buying lingerie

As Valentine’s Day approaches, you might be struggling to decide on a great gift for the special woman in your life. One classic is lingerie. Lingerie is a great choice because it fits the romantic nature of the holiday and is something that you can enjoy together to increase intimacy in your relationship, and there is an enormous variety in styles so you can find something that any woman will love.

We’ve found that most shoppers have a lot of questions and need some guidance in making the perfect selection for their partner, especially when they’re dating someone new, so we wanted to give you a few tips that will help you make the right choice while you’re shopping.

Keep her in mind when purchasing

While seeing her in lingerie is certainly a treat for you, remember that you are buying and presenting this as a gift for her, so it’s crucial that you keep her likes and dislikes in mind. This might be a cardinal rule of gift giving, but it is something that is often overlooked by the lingerie novice.

Stick to her unique style

When you aren’t sure what to get, or if you’re buying lingerie for your partner for the first time, it’s important to think about the things you’ve seen her wear before, both inside and outside of the bedroom. If she has more of a traditional style, she might not feel comfortable in a risque bodysuit. Likewise, if her style is more eclectic, you can probably choose lingerie that is less than traditional.  

Figure out her size

Trying to guess her size by comparing her body to the sales associate in the store can be awkward, so we definitely recommend taking a glance at size tags on the bras and panties she already owns to help you out. Some lingerie comes in more simple S-XL sizes, while other pieces are sized by cup size or even traditional number-sizing, offering more variation. Guessing a woman’s size is never easy, and you don’t want to offend her by picking a size that is way off base.

Purchase a color that you know she likes and looks good on her

Color can be a tough one for the inexperienced lingerie shopper, but if you are attentive and observant, it can be a breeze. Think about the colors that she typically chooses for bras and panties. If you can’t remember, take note of colors as you’re combing through her drawers to 

find out her sizes. If that fails, take a look at her closet. If she wears mostly neutrals, she might not be comfortable in a bright color. If you’re still unsure, black is always a safe bet.

Play up her confidence and remember to downplay her insecurities

Women can be particularly in tune with any body flaws they think they have, so it’s important to focus on highlighting the areas that you know she’s confident about, even if some of the places she’s insecure about are your favorites. You want to make your woman feel confident and sexy in whatever piece you buy her, so you want to buy pieces that emphasize what she feels are her best assets. Because let’s face it, confidence is the sexiest a thing a woman could ever wear.
