Your guide to buying lingerie 



Firstly, well done you if you are about to take on the sometimes daunting, yet exciting task of buying your lover some lingerie and you have found yourself here. What a thoughtful and attentive partner you are.


If this is the first time you have bought your lover lingerie you need to do a bit of detective work and match the item of beauty to your special beauty. So you need to know her size. A little sneak at her underwear drawer (don’t get caught!) or at any clothes lying around should help you here. Also try to get an idea of what she already has as an indicator of what she likes. Which colours and materials does she favour? Does she go for plain, or patterned? Though a break from the norm is likely very welcome, if it’s the first time you are buying lingerie for her play safe and ease in with something not too dissimilar to her current garments. Buying a usually demure girl who only ever wears floral cotton something red and black and covered in studs may send her the wrong signal that you want her to be something she is not, or isn’t yet! Trust me, as time goes on she will let you know what she likes and you’ll have more room for imagination. Taking notice of your lovers tastes, rather than overwhelming her with yours will go a long long way. I recommend buying from somewhere like Lovehoney who not only has a superb selection of lingerie for all tastes, but also has a no quibble 365 day returns policy and you cannot say fairer that that!


So now to what type of lingerie to buy:


Chemise – this is a silky plain mini-dress that is sexy and sensual and flatters all body-shapes and sizes. It can be worn for romance and also as sleepwear making this a big hit in the gift department. This black sheer number is a beautiful example:

Negligee – Lingerie that resembles a dress. Can be short or floor length.












Baby Doll – A type of negligee that is usually tight around the breasts then flows freely. Short, cute and sexy like this little red babydoll:

Camisole – A camisole is a silky vest top. Looks lovely with matching knickers or as a short set. camisole set











Teddy- A teddy is like a loose vest top and shorts in one. Cute and playful. Teddy











Corset – A corset is designed to cinch in the waist and boost the bust. corset






Basque – A basque is corset-like but resembles a long bra.




Bustier – A more comfortable version of the corset as they are very attractive yet not shape-changing. lovehoney bustier











Tights- Tights are often every-day wear but can shape and enhance the silhouette. Can be very sexy (think fishnet as below) Fishnet tights













Stockings- Stockings need a suspender belt or corset straps to stay up. stockings













Suspender belt- A belt with straps to hold up stockings (sometimes called a Garter) suspender belt
