If you’ve been with your significant other for awhile, you’ve probably found yourselves walking past a lingerie store window and wondering whether or not it’d be appropriate to buy your special lady an outfit from there. The overwhelming plethora of fabric, styles, colors, and weird garter things can become a blinding tunnel of confusion, leaving many to purchase something two sizes too small and not necessarily appropriate in style for their girl. Cup sizes, measurements, body shape, material, body shapers, say what? Why does this whole process have to be so confusing?!

Don’t have a panic attack just yet, because the truth of the matter is buying gifts in general isn’t always an easy task, let alone adding intimate apparel to the mix. And better yet, there are a lot of women who have difficulty purchasing lingerie themselves! Whew! If that’s not a relief, then I don’t know what is.

It’s time to focus on the fact that purchasing lingerie is a great way to add excitement, romance and overall passion to any relationship. Not to mention, it is a gift after all, and there’s some beautiful lingerie out there that can compete with traditional gifts like spa days and jewelry. If done right, these types of gifts are guaranteed to get her seal of approval! Here are a couple tips to help you on the right track to buying the woman in your life a great lingerie gift.

Is It What You Want Or What She Wants?

As saddening as it may sound, there’s a huge difference between what men find sexy and what women find sexy in regards to underwear and lingerie. With that being said, let’s try to keep the lady in mind so no one ends up in the dog house.


Stop! Put the thin bathing suit looking contraption down! Holding the garment up and picturing your girl in it will not suffice for a proper sizing or fitting! If you want to purchase lingerie for a woman, you have to figure out what her sizes are, plain and simple. Impossible?! Nothing is impossible. It’s actually quite easy to figure out what sizes will work for her in the lingerie department. Get your spy shades on and prepare to go incognito, or just pay attention to her clothing and underwear. Sneak a peek at her bra and see what size she wears. You’ll notice a number before a letter (36B for example); you will need both for shopping for lingerie. Next, it’s time to check out the pants AND underwear. Once you have those sizes down, you have all that you need to ensure that what you buy her will actually fit!

How Much Do You Want To Spend?

With this one, it’s pretty self-explanatory. You get what you pay for! If you want to ensure you’ve got a good gift on your hands, stick to the higher-end lingerie boutiques. They might be a little more expensive, but their product will be made better, and they’ll offer more women-friendly cuts and designs. She’ll appreciate a piece of lingerie that compliments her body and feels nice on her skin as opposed to a stiff cheap garment that will rip if washed! Once you see her in one of these exquisite pieces, you’ll have a new idea of sexy…guaranteed!

Her Personality Matters

Finding a style that you both will find attractive might be a little tricky, but it is possible! Your best bet here will be to again, focus more on a higher-end store to ensure that their collection is more female-based in regards to style. If she exudes sex appeal and has a little mystery to her, go for something out-of-the-box like garters, dark colors, leather, etc. If she’s a girly girl, try bows and polka dots, and try sticking to pastel colors. These little details can help you find a style and pattern that you’ll both love!

Ask The Lady At The Store For Help

Don’t be embarrassed about being in a ladies’ lingerie shop, no one is looking at you weird. In fact, if anyone IS looking at you, it’s because they’re probably thinking that it’s sweet you’re trying to buy someone lingerie. Ask the salesperson for help, give her the sizes you have gathered up, tell her what the occasion is (if any-you don’t always need a reason to purchase your lady something remember), describe your girl’s personality, give her a price range, and watch the stress disappear from your shoulders. I promise, once you have this all down and presented to the salesperson, you’ll have a perfect lingerie gift on your hands!

Done right, this will be a gift that just keeps on giving.. 🙂
