Men's Guide to Buying Lingerie for Women

You’ve decided to buy a beautiful gift for your wife, girlfriend, or lover, and you realize that lingerie would be absolutely perfect for the occasion. It may seem like a challenging task if you’ve never purchased lingerie for her, but we’ve created a simple men’s guide on how to select lingerie that she’ll love.

1. Find out her size

Instead of asking her, sneak into her lingerie drawer and look on the tags of her bras and panties to see what size she wears. This will be tremendously helpful, as you won’t have to do any guessing. Also, look to see what size her dresses are if you’re shopping for lingerie-inspired outfits that she can wear out to dinner.

2. Identify her style

Her clothing will help you determine her lingerie style. Does she like to wear feminine outfits with pink and floral patterns? She might like romantic lingerie with floral lace. Or does she have a sexy style with form-fitting dresses? She might like lingerie that is strappy, sheer, and more seductive. Is her style more casual? Try pieces like the Noir Cut Out Bodysuit. You can also take note of the style of pieces in her lingerie drawer when you’re searching for her size.

3. Consider the occasion

Are you shopping for a pleasant surprise or a special day like an anniversary? If it’s for a special occasion, it will mean even more to her if the lingerie is tied to a memory. For example, if you once experimented with her submissive fantasy and it was an incredible experience for both of you, you can get her something from our Roleplay Collection and include a note that reminds her of that special night. If you’re shopping for a gift just because (which we love), then anything that suits her style is perfect.

4. If you’re in doubt, choose something with a flexible fit

Not only are designer robes gorgeous, but they are also very simple to give as a gift. Sized as small, medium, and large (and even one size fits most) without much of a restriction on fit, there’s no doubt she’ll love anything that you select. The sash wraps around her body and can be adjusted to fit however she’d like. You can also include playful accessories, which are all one size.

5. Ask for assistance

We offer personal shopping, and we love helping gentlemen find what they’re looking for. This is a personalized service that we provide via email or over the phone. Please let us know what works best for you:

6. Shop her wishlist

If you need more guidance, ask her to register for an account and create a wishlist. She’ll be able to select her favorites and share a link with you so you can pick out her gift. You can always refer to her wishlist throughout the year when buying for her birthday, Valentine’s Day, the holidays, or just because you want to see her smile.

7. Enjoy a glass of whiskey and start shopping
