The Guy's Guide to Buying Lingerie
The truth is all women love receiving beautiful lingerie that makes them look and feel gorgeous. But, we know, just the thought of walking into one of those excessively lavendar scented feminine stores makes you weak in the knees. Well, fear no more! Follow this simple guide to buying lingerie and she'll turn into mush, not you.
Step One: Make Her Feel Gifted
Remember, you are buying HER a present, not you. If she feels good in it, she'll love it and that extra confidence will make her look fabulous, and even better - she'll wear it more than once! That's what we call a win-win.
Step Two: What To Choose
This is what you get for living in a democracy - lots of choices! But making the right one is pretty easy. If this is the first time you are buying her lingerie (or the first time in a long time), go with a gorgeous chemise
(a short nightgown) or a glamorous gown
with a matching robe
. The key here is to select a beautiful high quality fabric such as silk or a smooth cotton sateen - these fabrics will drape much better, instantly taking off five pounds and making her look and feel stunning. If you are feeling a bit bolder, go with a camisole
set. It's more daring because it's two pieces and, well, it involves a panty but it definitely won't bring out the, "Where's the rest?!" reaction.
Step Three: How to Diffuse the Size Bomb
Good news! Our items come in S, M, L, and XL - you have a 1 in 4 chance of hitting a bulls-eye. Let's improve your chances significantly - peek in her closet and find two items: her jeans and a button front shirt. Take the numbered sizes and follow our size chart. When buying a chemise, nightgown or robe, use the bigger size between the shirt and the jeans (the Largest Common Denominator
rule). If buying a camisole and panty, match up the sizes on the tops and the sizes on the bottoms.
Now you're well on your way to getting her the perfect piece of lingerie and making her feel very special. Don't be afraid to call us for help - it's not like asking for directions! Our staff is very knowledgeable and has impeccable taste. 1.800.662.5723.
