How to Shop for Lingerie


Lingerie is probably one of your favorite Valentine's Day gifts (for obvious reasons), but before you get to rip it off her, learn how to get her something she will want to actually put on.

Valentine's Day is just a few days away. If you've been putting off the dreaded task of buying her lingerie it's time to face your fear. Trust us, the outcome will be extremely worth those few minutes of awkwardness. To make it less intimidating we got experts in the field to share tips that will turn you into an expert in all things lace.

Get Yourself Inside

While this first piece of advice may sound stupidly simple, it has to be said. In order to buy her something from a lingerie store, you actually have to walk into a store. "We see many men hovering around outside looking in the windows, perhaps getting up the nerve to come in," says Monica Mitro, EVP of Brand Communication and Events at Victoria's Secret. But remember this when you are standing there nervously peeping the windows: loitering around outside a lingerie store is much creepier than actually shopping inside of it, so man-up and go in.

Know You Are Not Alone

Once you make it inside you'll realize you're not the lone guy sticking out like a Yankees cap at Fenway. According to Mitro, Valentine's Day and the few days leading up to it are the most popular days of the year for men to shop for lingerie: "Guys can take comfort in knowing that there will be lots of other men in the store all in the same situation." That also gives you a great opportunity to stock up for her birthday or other holidays when you might want to give her lingerie. Do it now while you've got comrads around for support.

Get Her Digits

It's extremely common for men to know absolutely nothing about sizing, so don't be embarrassed. Instead, do some investigative work by peeking in her drawers while she's in the shower or out of the room, suggests Alexis Isodora, owner of lingerie boutique Brooklyn Fox. Just remember that some brands size differently so check at least 3 of her bras and 3 of her sexy panties. Oh, and write it down, warns Isodora. There's no way you are going to remember, plus you can hand the info to a salesgirl who can help decipher the right size based on your notes.

Can't get her out of the room? Stick with an item that is available in small, medium, large or one size fits all. Don't try to guess without any basis for information—there is nothing scarier than getting her something that doesn't fit and having to deal with her resulting freak out.

Prepare Yourself

Before you head to a store check out their website to see what they have to offer and get an idea of what colors and styles you might like to see on your girl, suggests Mitro. Doing some preliminary shopping from the safety and privacy of your desk chair can make the process a little less overwhelming, plus you can stare at the models on your screen all you want without anyone singling you out as a perv!


Ask For Help

You may not want to stop on the road to ask for directions, but this is one place where you want to put your pride aside. If you're unsure (which you probably are), don't risk getting her something she'll hate. Think of the sales associates as your lingerie GPS and let them guide you to the right gift. "We love that we get to educate men and show them a few things we think will excite them and their partner," says Isodora. And the good thing is that they have seen some freaky stuff, so nothing will phase them.

Get the Good Stuff

Cotton may work for her everyday basics, but for Valentine's Day you definitely want to up the ante and go for lace, satin or silk. Or even better—a combination of them. Different styles suit different women but you hopefully know your woman pretty well, so Isodora suggests using common sense. If she's a laid back t-shirt & jeans kind of girl, she probably doesn't want a frilly, intricate bustier with complicated buttons or lace-ups. Try something sweet, simple, and satin.

If she's more high-maintenace and spends an hour putting on makeup, you probably could go the more complex route. For girly girls like this, Mitro suggests bold colors with glamorous lace.

Use Your Judgment

Above all use your judgment. If you're in a new relationship, don’t buy something too sexy, warns Mitro. If she's never expressed an interested in bondage, do not get her something that resembles a straight jacket. If she's not into role play, a skimpy candy stripper outfit is not going to go over well. And if she has insecurities about certain parts of her body (even if you swear she's perfect), don't get her something that will reveal those areas.

Plus Size Lingerie - How To Get A Great Fit Every Time

For a lot of women, and many men for that matter, lingerie is actually one of the sexiest items offered in the marketplace. However, when you are a woman who requires plus size lingerie it can occasionally be difficult to get the ideal possible choices to fit your taste and body figure. Many women of this size are often uncomfortable or a little bit self-conscious with regards to searching for lingerie, but they don't have to be. Here are a number of recommendations on exactly how you'll be able to purchase plus size lingerie without any anxiety or strain.

You will need to always be sure of your exact clothing size. It is a frequent problem of larger women that they don't wish to be measured or they just never get around to it. This is paramount - if you don't know your own size then you can expect to never be in a position to purchase lingerie that looks good on you.

All lingerie suppliers provide a freely available measuring service, so be sure you make use of it. They will measure you perfectly, so you'll be able to then confidently continue on with your shopping. Bear in mind that your measurements may fluctuate, also, therefore it really is advisable to get yourself measured on every single shopping trip that you go on. This tends to save you the time of having to try on the items each time and additionally guarantee that you get the right size.

Every woman usually has a preferred fabric they like their sexy panties to be designed of. Many favor silk while other women like cotton or lace. Always make certain that the plus size lingerie that you purchase is created from the fabric you find the most comfortable. It can sometimes be easy to be lured in by a design that you like, but it is available in a material you do not. This will mean you having to return the product and wasting your time.

Finding sexy panties has never been easier

Finding sexy panties has never been easier. With so many cuts, styles, colours and prints, it could take you all day just to find one! From black stripe thongs to red bikini bottoms and everything in between, you could find anything that fits your personal taste and style. It's fun being able to pick a pair of sexy panties based on your mood or your outfit. The possibilities are endless!

Women's underwear basically breaks down into three main categories:
Briefs - When you picture the typical pair of women's underwear, you are most likely picturing a pair of briefs. These are cut like the bottom of swimsuits. In fact, many briefs are considered to be bikinis, just like swimsuits are. There are a few choices to be made when we purchase briefs, though, including the cut on the thigh and the rise. Low-rise briefs ride below your belly button and can be really sexy panties.

Boy Shorts - Boy shorts are adorable briefs that come in different colours and styles. Usually, they are form-fitting and much, much shorter than real shorts. These sexy panties can come with lace trim and ruffles and many other cutesy patterns that guys and girls both enjoy.

Thongs and G-Strings - The terms "thong" and "g-string" are often used to refer to the same thing, although there is a slight difference. Both types of sexy panties consist of a patch of cloth that covers the front and a narrow strip of fabric that sits between the buttocks. The strip is generally narrower on a g-string than it is on a thong. Many women like thongs because they tend to show less of a pantie line than briefs. Because the buttocks are exposed, many people find them to be very sexy, too.

All of these types of underwear can serve their own purpose and reason. Boy shorts are cute and innocent while g-strings are sexy and racy. Most women tend to stick to what they like depending on the cut and fabric. But your mood for the day can also play a big part on the type of sexy panties you wear underneath it all. Whatever you may choose, it's the confidence that makes the sexy panties especially sexy.
