Men's Guide to Valentine's Day Lingerie
Valentine's Day is a time for romance and passion, and the perfect opportunity to show your special someone just how desirable they are. The gift of beautiful lingerie can make a woman feel desired and appreciated, and when chosen correctly, is the perfect gift that she will forever love.
Know her size
It is important to select the correct size when purchasing lingerie. This is often the simplest element to consider, but also the most overlooked. We advise that you dust off your detective outfit and do some investigative work to find her current bra and brief sizes.
You will need to look for both a number (eg.12) and a letter (eg.C), as they will determine the bras fit.
The size of the brief is also important. Most styles are available in XS-XL range. If you are in doubt, a sizing chart is available on each of the product pages for you to refer to.
If you find a variety of sizes, choose the one that is most frequent.
Returns and exchanges are always free, so can always exchange the size if it is not suitable.
Colour and Style
Lingerie for Valentine’s Day should be luxurious and sensual. Valentine’s Day is the time to purchase lingerie that is rich in colours such as violet, red and navy. Of course, black and white are the most popular colours as they compliment all skin tones and always looks sexy.
Lace is the fabric of love and is available in an array of designs. If your special someone is on the more conservative or classic side, we recommend styles the are more simple and understated.
Always remember that if there is a particular colour or style that she loves to wear, stick with it. If you do wish to broaden her horizons, we recommend to either mix up the colour or the style. Not both. This is the easiest way to ensure she will love to wear the lingerie. If there is a particular colour she favours, try mixing up the style. On the other hand, if there is a particular style she likes, try mixing up the colours.
This also applies to briefs. The key is to select something that she will feel comfortable in and is likely to wear. If she wears full cotton briefs, opt for full lace briefs or a bikini style brief (has full coverage but is cut higher across the leg and lower in the waist). If she wears briefs, we do not suggest purchasing a g-string. If you would prefer to purchase something with a little less coverage, we suggest a brief with a lace back or a shorty.
Hint: women who generally wear the same style of bra (push up vs non-padded) or same colouring (dark vs light), are often happy with that style or colour. By following what she already likes while slightly mixing up one element, you will be sure to get her something she will love.
Remember, Valentine’s Day is a time to spoil her with something you will both enjoy.
Play it safe
If you are still unsure or don't know her size, a chemise is always a great option. This short nightgown comes in a size range from XS-XL and is usually not bra size specific.
