Mother’s Day, Christmas, birthdays – all wonderful opportunities to give a really special gift to the woman you love. If you’re brave enough, or have great advice from an expert, lingerie is the perfect way to show your appreciation for a girlfriend or spouse. Well, breathe easy boys – the experts at Elleran Lingerie have come up with a Men’s Guide for Lingerie Gifts.
Get Her Size
This seems obvious but it bears repeating. It doesn’t take an expert to recognise that you can’t win by getting your partner a lingerie set that is too small or too big. And while you probably don’t want to get caught going through her underwear draw either, its worth getting the size right to ensure your gift is perfect.
Remember Who You Are Buying For
Your taste and hers might be completely different – but if you are buying for a loved one its her opinion that counts. Notice the underwear she loves to wear; many women have a favourite bra, often because its the most comfortable. If you your gift to become a favourite, notice the detail on this bra. Is it a full cup or half? Lacy or silky? What are the straps like? You don’t have to get her something too similar to what she already has, but a successful gift will be one she feels most comfortable in.
Be Open Minded About What Lingerie Is
What men and women consider to be lingerie is often very different. Your gift doesn’t necessarily need to include garters or racy undergarments. Body briefs, corsolets and simple bra and brief sets make beautiful gifts for the lady in your life. Stick to what you know she loves and will be comfortable in.
Listen to the Experts
If all else fails, consider asking an expert. The fitters at Elleran Lingerie have sold hundreds of sets of lingerie to women of all shapes, sizes and tastes and can be a great help in gift giving.
