Valentine’s Day is only around the corner and it is the perfect time to treat your loved one to something special. Lingerie is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day because it not only pleases your other half it pleases you as well. I know the lingerie world can often be a very confusing place for you men, particularly when you are trying to buy lingerie for your partner but don’t worry as long as you follow our three simple tips you will win them over every time. There are so many things to think about when buying lingerie for your partner; finding the right size, finding the right style but most importantly finding something that they are actually going to like and wear. Our three simple tips will be sure to turn you into a lingerie buying pro so take a peek.


SIZE IS KEY- Getting your partners size right is the most important thing you need to think about when purchasing lingerie. If you get the wrong size then she will either be polite and not tell you and never wear the lingerie or have to mess about trying to exchange it for a different size. Both of these can easily be avoided though. So how do you find her size? It’s simple take a look in her lingerie drawer. It is a good thing to remember what lingerie she wears the most often as this will indicate what her current size is. All you have to do is look at the labels on your partner’s bras and knickers and bam your have her size. It is important to take note of both the band size and cup size on the bra, for example it might say 34D (this is the full bra size.)


WOULD SHE ACTUALLY WEAR IT?- Another important question to ask yourself before buying lingerie for your other half is are they actually going to like and wear it. It can be difficult to know what colours and styles your partner prefers but like before the easiest thing to do is just look. Take a peek inside your partner’s wardrobe and lingerie drawer. Are there colours or styles that appear often, if so this will most likely be her preference. If you are feeling brave then why don't you try something a little different to what your partner might usually wear. We ladies tend to get in the habit of buying underwear with the same style and colour as it becomes routine but your other half might appreciate trying something new and exciting. It may be worth taking the risk.
Finding the right style of bra for your partner can also be an issue which is why I always suggest getting a balcony bra as this style is suited to most bust shapes and sizes and most importantly it looks great on. 


GET THE MATCHING SET- If you are treating your partner to a lingerie ‘set’ then make sure you get the matching lingerie set. When we ladies are being treated to some sexy new underwear the last thing we want is to receive a black bra and red knickers. Make sure that when you are looking for a lingerie set you check to see that they have both the bra and knickers in your partner’s size, otherwise you will be getting a few surprised looks, and not in a good way. Plus there's nothing more sexy than matching lingerie
