A Gentleman’s Guide to Buying Lingerie

A Gentleman’s Guide to Buying Lingerie with Orchid du Bois

The very fact that you’ve made it this far is a testament to your good sense, and almost certainly a prelude to good things to come. While buying lingerie for your partner can be both seductive and rewarding, it can alsobe quite a daunting task. It can be difficult to know where to start and for that reason we have prepared this list of helpful hints and tips to make sure that your purchase is well received and enjoyed by both of you.

Size her up

The best way to determine a women’s size is to look in her lingerie drawer or sneak a peak at the label when next undressing her. If you find various sizes (and this does happen between different brands) go with thesmaller size. We have yet to meet a women who appreciates lingerie a size bigger then she is. If you are still unsure then choose from lingerie items such as triangle bras or baby dolls that don’t require a cup size. If stillin doubt call her best friend. It’s amazing what girls know about each other.

Consider both your lingerie desires

One of the most common mistakes men make when buying lingerie as a gift is selecting items that ‘they’ findseductive without considering what she would feel most comfortable and sensual in. Be aware of the body parts she likes and highlight these while downplaying the parts she likes less. For example a woman whodoes not like her bottom but loves her breasts may prefer a panty rather than a thong and may enjoy a more risqué breast exposing harness. Be aware of the types of styles she likes and bear this in mind when choosing– if her panty draw is full of thongs then stay with that style. It is our opinion that a woman who feels both comfortable and confident in her lingerie will be more confident and playful in the bedroom – to the benefit ofyou both.

Colour – it’s up to you

Colour is a personal thing however we encourage gentlemen to take charge here and choose a colour you would like to see her in. There is no denying that black remains one of the most popular and seductive colours,however desire is not just ‘black and white’.

One size fits all

If you are still in doubt of sizing or style then gift vouchers are a good way to spoil your partner. It can also be afun way to choose to spend it together afterwards, giving you the chance to express your own preferences or encourage her to try something new that you may like to see her in.

Don’t be shy

Armed with your partner’s size or merely just her favourite colour talk to the experts. You’ll find they can help make the process even easier.

Get it wrapped

Make the experience of opening the gift of lingerie enjoyable from the start. At Orchid we are only a phonecall or email away and love nothing more than helping with the fun task of gift choice. We will also wrap your chosen lingerie in our beautiful shopping bag nestled in tissue and send it discreetly to you or to yourpartner directly. The choice is yours.

Remember that your efforts (right or wrong) will not go unappreciated or unrewarded. Enjoy.

    always buy something comfortable for her - but it doesn't matter really as the best bit is when it comes off

    Buy a voucher. One of the best gives I've been given was a voucher from Victorias Secret. You don't know what will make a woman 'feel' sexy and that's probably 90% of looking sexy. Buy a voucher from a sexy store.
