One thing that both the guy and lady in a relationship have in common is the love for lingerie. Where the guy likes to see his girl in beautiful lingerie, the lady likes to exhibit her body in it. So whether you’re in a new relationship or have been with your girl for a while, buying her nice underwear is an excellent way to keep the attraction alive.
Every guy knows that lingerie remains one of those presents that your woman would love every single time. You never have too much. But it’s hard to be a man in a lingerie shop, so here are the basics for anxious gentleman shoppers
Get Her Size Right
You absolutely have to get her size right. If you buy something too small, she will know you didn’t do your homework; if you buy something too big, you’re in deep trouble because that means you think she's bigger than she really is. To find the best fit, you need to do your research by checking out her underwear drawer and examining the labels. Be aware that it doesn’t work in simply S, M & L. You will need her bra cup size and her underwear size.
Get Her Style Right
Her style is important, so get it right; as much as she will enjoy your thoughtfulness, if she doesn’t like it, the lingerie will more than likely sit unused at the back of her underwear drawer. Finding her a set she will love to show off can be one of the best investments a man can make, so take your time and do it well.
Most women can pull off white, red or black; luckily, nearly all lingerie comes in these colors, making it reasonably easy to choose.
There are normally a few different types of fabric to choose from when buying lingerie, such as lace, satin, silk, cotton, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), leather, lycra, and velvet. Lace, satin and silk are considered “safe purchases” because they are very feminine, not too wild or over-the-top and feel beautiful on the skin.
In summary, while buying lingerie for your girlfriend has bonus points for you, to be effective, it really needs to be about your girl. Think of it as, by buying them for her, you’ll effectively be buying them for yourself, if that’s any help. So be sensitive to what your girl already likes, get her size right and stick to the nice stuff.
