Welcome to the Lingerie Buying Guide for Men

We would love to help guide you now that you have chosen lingerie as a gift for that special person in your life. The feel of luxurious lingerie adds to your sensual pleasure and we are here to help you find just the right item for her (and you)! Please take a quick look at our Helpful Hints below.

Know Her Sizes

  • If you aren't sure, ask her. You don't need to tell her what it is for, just let her know it's a surprise and that she is going to love it. Leave her intrigued - tease her!
  • Ask her mother or a close friend who can snoop without arousing suspicion - they'll enjoy keeping the secret.
  • Investigate - its rather fun - there is a little detective in all of us! Peek in the wardrobe and through her lingerie drawer. Find her most comfortable everyday bra(s) and look in the back for the size. What colors does she prefer, pastels, rich fashion colors or sleek black?
  • Has she recently given birth? Allow more room!

Remember Who is Going to Wear It

  • Size and comfort will be important factors if you want her to wear it again and again! Use care when choosing something quite revealing. Tasteful coverage will leave something to the imagination. Remember most women are conscious of their bodies.
