 A Man's Guide to Buying Lingerie for his Lady

The most important thing to understand is that it's not just about the right size. There are many factors to consider before stocking up on your lady's favorite pieces. What she likes, what her style is, and what would be the most comfortable for her to wear should all factor in. You'll need to take into account your budget and what kind of clothing she wears as well as what size bra she wears and if the lingerie you buy will go with anything from her everyday wardrobe already. For example, if you're looking to buy a corset, you'll need to know if your lady wears long or short sleeve tops in her everyday wardrobe.

When you're buying lingerie for her, it's about as far from a one size fits all philosophy as possible. Unless she has incredibly similar proportions to another woman, it's unlikely that the bras your lady wears will fit her sister or best friend. Bras are made to fit a specific person and while you can easily look up her size, you won't be able to tell exactly what shape the bra will rest on until you try it on her. If she's taller than average or shorter than average, if she's got a large bust or more petite breasts, if she's gained weight in certain places or lost it in others, each of those things will change the shape and design of the bra itself.

The same goes for panties. It's been said that every woman has at least two unique pairs of underwear. That's because unlike bras where the size is standardized from brand to brand, underwear is different for every woman depending on the style and design.

If she ran a race with her old pair of panties on and you got to see them afterwards, you'd know they weren't the ones you bought her.

So the first step in buying lingerie is making sure that if she's trying on something new, that it fits her like it's supposed to. That means trying a bra on her in the store with an actual mirror and having her try on underwear without yanking down the tag. Try to get her in a dressing room instead of in front of a three way mirror where you can see what's going on but she can't.

The most important step is to have her try on clothing that's similar to the underwear she already wears. While a pair of stockings or a bra is fairly specific, it's still pretty easy to spot mismatched pantyhose or at least tell if they're the same brand and color as what she wears daily. If you'd like, bring a friend along. Women often get nervous trying on lingerie, and if someone else can come along it'll help alleviate any fears she might have. If you haven't bought her any new lingerie before, this could be the first time she tries anything new in front of anyone but you.


You've bought lingerie for your lady. You've almost broken the ice. Now all that's left is to see what she'll do with it when she's all alone...
