LINGERIE BUYING FOR MEN

You decided to buy some romantic lingerie but you're embarrassed to be in a lingerie store. A suggestion for men is to act confident; like you've done this before. Don't be afraid to ask the salesperson for help if you need it. Small lingerie boutiques are likely to offer customers a more personalize service. Although, prices may be slightly higher in the specialty boutiques, you will be more pleased with the friendly customer care you'll receive. Large department stores don't always have enough trained clerks who are willing to help shoppers with personal attention.

WHAT SIZE TO BUY?

Besides feeling embarrassed, men often have real difficulty with size. This is the number one problem men face when shopping for lingerie. They usually buy the wrong size. If you don't know her size, choose a style that adjusts to fit small, medium and large. A wrap around silk robe will work well if you want to play it safe. . Don't choose anything form fitting, like a bustier or bra. If she's a size "D" cup and you choose a size "A" cup, you'll be way off. Men could make it easy on themselves by simply asking their honey, "what size do you wear?" Shy about asking? Look in her lingerie draw for sizing.

WHAT MEN LIKE:

Men most often like to buy the more sexy styles; a lace teddy or sexy bustier with garter belts and thigh high stocking to complete an exciting romantic fantasy. Guys, this may be your fantasy but its not hers. Of course this does depend on each individual woman's style and taste when choosing intimate apparel.

WHAT WOMEN LIKE:

Women enjoy looking and feeling sexy too but often choose styles that are less revealing. She may be self-conscious about her body and will want to cover up certain body parts that she feels are less than perfect. A sexy baby doll, a beautiful chemise, a romantic cami and tap pant set... that's what most women want.

WHAT COLOR TO BUY?

Once you enter the shopping area you'll notice a large selection of styles and colors. This can be confusing. If you are a first time buyer, we suggest sticking to your basic colors like black, white, or nude. You can also consider choosing her favorite color or pick colors that will compliment her skin tone. Red is the color of love and the most popular lingerie gift-giving holiday color for Christmas and Valentine's Day. Traditional bridal lingerie colors are white and off-white. However, today's brides are expanding their lingerie wardrobes to include a larger variety of styles and colors that will take them far beyond the honeymoon.

WHAT'S HOT?

Velvets, embroidered glitter, marabou. fake fur trims even ostrich feathers compliment and accent many different styles this Fall. Leather and leather look-a-like fabrics are also very hot.
