Erotic images of nights full of unbridled passion filling your mind and then it hits you, this could be dangerous territory, as you know nothing of choosing lingerie for a woman's body type. Even worse, you already lucked out on her birthday, when you bought her that new steam oven you've always wanted, resulting in a short holiday on the couch! At this point, you realise you can't afford to choose the wrong piece of lingerie, or the couch situation could become a permanent fixture!
Don't worry; you're not the first guy who's ventured into the relatively uncharted waters of buying woman lingerie, which is why we've provided some valuable tips below that will ensure you'll be kicking goals in more ways than one!
Before you head over to our fantastic lingerie section, it's important to do some research to find out what type of sexy underwear your wife likes. While you may feel a little creepy visiting your wife's underwear drawer, it's a great way to determine what styles of underwear she prefers. Check what cup size and bra size she is, whether she likes lingerie that's feminine and lacy or simple and sexy and also what colours she prefers. By doing the legwork early, it will save you having to be in stealth mode at the lingerie store later, dodging sales assistants while trying to find something she likes while doing your best not to appear too seedy fondling women's underwear!
When it comes to sexy lingerie, size matters! It's vital to know whether your wife is small, medium, large, x-large or beyond. You also need to take into account her body type, such as whether she has an inverted triangle or hourglass figure and buy lingerie that draws attention to the assets she likes while hiding those that make her feel self-conscious.
Although you may have considered a gift of lingerie to be a thoughtful gesture, if your wife ends up looking vacuum packed like a Christmas turkey in underwear that's too tight or unflattering, the only other worst case scenario to put nails in your coffin is saying, "but it looked good on the Victoria's Secret Model". Remember, by choosing lingerie for a women's body type she'll feel sexy, and when she feels sexy, she'll also look hot and you'll score major Brownie Points.
While buying lingerie is often a brave and incredibly terrifying new world for a majority of the male population, if you learn some of the technical terms, it will become far more manageable. Here are some of the main words you need to know, as well as a description of what these mean.
Although it sounds like an army drill, underwire refers to a bra type that has a small wire running underneath the cup to provide shape and better support. An underwire is often recommended for women with a fuller bust or wants to accentuate her cleavage.
A soft cup is the opposite of an underwire, which is a bra without a wire that offers gentle support. Soft cup bras are more suited for women with small chests.
The Demi is a sexy bra style that has the top of the cup cut away to show more of the breast. A demi cup provides less coverage than a full cup bra.
A bustier is a type of bodice which is fixed from the bust to the waist or hip with hook and eye clips. It offers support and when cinched tightly, accentuates a women's curves. It's similar to a corset but generally doesn't provide as much coverage.
When cinched, a corset gives a woman the flattering appearance of an hourglass figure, like a classic pinup girl. While it has similarities to a bustier, a corset is tighter and has stiffer boning, as well as lacing for closure.
A garter belt or suspender belt, as it's otherwise known, is a thin belt with clasps on the front and back of each leg used to hold up stockings. Garter belts often come in lace or satin and look great to complement a corset.
Boy shorts are a low rise style of panty, which hug the hips and offers more coverage than a g-string.
The g-string is a panty with a small triangular front panel and back panel, which are connected by a thin string of fabric, leaving the cheeks of the buttocks exposed. If you are curious as to how the g-string became to be? Click here for a history on the g-string and its origins.
You're probably starting to feel overwhelmed with all of the terms discussed. There are just a couple more points you should keep close to your heart before you are going to become a pro at choosing lingerie for your wife!
When buying lingerie, while you might be attracted to a specific shade, such as red, it's essential to buy colours that will suit the skin tone of the wearer, for it to be flattering. If you're uncertain what colours to choose, you can always fall back on black.
Although you may be picturing your wife in something sheer and seductive, with a plunging neckline or a minute triangle shaped bra that's more of a nipple cover than a support mechanism, it's essential to buy something that suits her style for her to feel comfortable wearing it. Whether this might be floral and flirty or dark and kinky, please pay attention to what she wears when she's wanting attention in the bedroom and select something similar!
All women have favourite lingerie brands, which suit their style and body shape. So knowing which brands your wife prefers is a no-brainer when deciding on what lingerie to buy, as you have less chance of making a mistake.
