How to Choose Lingerie Gifts…With Care!

Lingerie is traditionally a popular choice for men seeking a gift for their wives, girlfriends, or indeed any other “lady friend”. Unfortunately, the buying process often takes place at stressful times of the year, for example Christmas Eve. Such a last minute purchase can easily be fraught with potential landmines and if the man is not careful, a serious error of judgment might be made. If that does happen, what was intended as a gift of love and affection can rapidly turn into grounds for divorce!

The problem men fail to understand is this: the type of lingerie that women like to wear is not always necessarily what men want to see them wearing. Women tend to prefer lingerie that makes them feel sexy, seductive, and above all, feminine, and although there are days when they might feel tired and unattractive on the outside, the moment they put a pretty bra ensemble on, their mood is instantly lifted.

But lingerie is a very personal choice. Some women are happy to wear items that are designed purely for bedroom entertainment, whereas another woman would have a heart attack at the very thought of a peephole bra and suspenders. So please note: it is very important that you know your lady friend well enough and are able to accurately judge what she would be comfortable in. If you push the boundaries too far, she might not speak to you for weeks, or even—heaven forbid—months.
Fabric is important, too. Sub-standard lingerie is invariably manufactured from cheap, scratchy fabric. It might look sexy to you, but if your wife tries your new gift on and it causes a nasty rash within minutes, you can guarantee that the slinky black lace basque you fantasized over for weeks will never see the light of day again.

Another important consideration is bra size. Men are notoriously terrible at judging bra size. If you get this wrong, you will be a dead man. It doesn’t take a genius to check her existing bras before you go shopping. So check!

Last, but not least. If you are in the enviable position of having more than one lady friend in your life, do not commit the cardinal sin of buying two sets of lingerie as a gift: a sexy, provocative, naughty nurse outfit for your mistress, and another, far more demure, neck-to-ankle flannelet nightgown for your wife, and then inadvertently mix the boxes up…

Why Most Women Love To Wear Sexy Lingerie

It is no secret that women like lingerie. While men often like to see women wearing lingerie, women enjoy even more wearing lingerie. Good lingerie can make a woman feel sexy, no matter what she is wearing on the outside. Inside, she knows that she is wearing sexy lingerie and it gives her confidence. The feeling of sexy confidence is just one reason why women like lingerie.

Over the centuries, women have used lingerie in many different ways. Corsets were in fashion up until about 60 years ago and women would bind themselves into corsets to get what used to be called an hourglass figure. It was desirable, in the early part of the 20th century, for women to have small waists. For this reason, girls were often put into corsets at a young age so that their waists would not get large. It was uncomfortable, unhealthy and restricting to say the least. Nowadays, women like lingerie for the way it feels on their skin as well as the way it makes them feel about themselves.

Lingerie is still used to improve what are often seen as flaws in the figure of a woman. Women will wear control type panties if they wish to flatten their stomach and buttocks. Women with small chests will wear push up bras or padded bras to give them more cleavage and allow their clothing to look better on them. In the mirror, a woman will examine herself in lingerie and like what she sees as she will often purchase products that will enhance her figure and hide her flaws.

In addition to being figure flattering, lingerie will make someone feel sexy. It is normal for a woman to wear sexy undergarments or nightgowns when going to bed to try to evoke passion in her mate. A woman uses lingerie to invoke the sense of sight when arranging for a romantic evening with her partner. She will often wear enticing lingerie that she knows will arouse him.

The feeling of such fabrics as silks and satin on bare skin is pleasing to most women and this is yet another reason why women like lingerie. Good lingerie uses quality fabrics, such as silk, that feels good against the skin. There is much lingerie in the silk line that make a woman feel comfortable as well as sexy.

Even women who are single and without a significant other in their lives revel in lingerie. It is not only used to arouse a mate, but also as a confidence builder for any woman. A woman wearing sexy lingerie likes the way she looks in the mirror and knows that she will be desired. Just because a woman is single is no reason to give up wearing sexy lingerie. With the confidence that she gains by feeling good about herself on the inside, she will not be single long unless she chooses to be.

Fine fabrics, ribbons and laces have been coveted over the centuries by women who generally like to have feminine, pretty things. Many women enjoy the sensuality of just being a woman. They enjoy painting their nails, wearing make up, wearing certain scents and lotions and wearing feminine style clothing. In addition, women like lingerie because it makes them feel more like a woman in every way. It is not only, if purchased properly, used to enhance the figure, but also to make a woman feel more like a woman.

Each day, most women work hard the same way as men do. Many women work today in fields that were strictly only for men 30 years ago. It is nice for a woman who works in such a field to remind herself every once in a while that she is a woman. Although she may be wearing a hardhat and jeans, if underneath she is wearing a lacy camisole, she will feel very much like a woman. It is probably for this reason the most why women like lingerie.

How to choose sexy lingerie: classic chic or modern style?

Once upon a time, lingerie consisted of a series of functional undergarments designed to cover, lift, or strap down. The only person who saw such monstrosities was the wearer, her maid servant, and on the odd occasion, her husband. Thankfully, these days ladies underwear has been lifted out of the dark ages and the dawn of sexy lingerie means women all over the world can dress with a view to undressing confidently.

But whilst it might seem like a godsend to be faced with a huge choice of sexy lingerie, how on earth do you decide what the best style is for you? And worse, how do you buy sexy lingerie for somebody else?

There are so many different styles of lingerie available in the shops that it can be sometimes difficult to know what “look” to go for. Of course, there is a school of thought that says why stop at one set of sexy ladies underwear when you can have fifty, but unless you have money to throw away, you are probably more likely to buy a few key items of lingerie for special occasions and wear the everyday stuff the rest of the time.

There are many different factors to consider when shopping for lingerie. If you are shopping simply for yourself, you might prefer items that are pretty and dainty. Fresh, modern styles designed with floral fabrics and delicate lace are ideal for everyday wear, but are also attractive enough to make you feel sexy on a special night out.

Shopping for sexy lingerie with a view to showing your purchases off to the man in your life at some point in the near future is always good fun. This is a good time to spend a few moments considering what he might like as opposed to what you would normally choose. For example, if you know he has a thing for black panties combined with a corset, accessorize with stockings and spike heels. Alternatively, make the most of your assets with a wonder bra and a sexy thong. The possibilities are endless!

Bridal underwear is another area you can shop for. Try a boned corset for classic chic, or perhaps a sexy teddy for modern style—it really depends on your figure and the type of wedding dress you will be wearing.

Classic chic is always a timeless look in lingerie. Elegant corsets and sexy chemises are a wonderful look for the mature figure, but modern style and sexy fabrics are ideal for younger women who are more than happy to wear ladies underwear as outerwear.

Ultimately, lingerie is a personal choice, so shop to suit your age, figure, and levels of body confidence. If you would feel more comfortable in a classic white bra and panties as opposed to a black leather corset with stockings, then go for it. There is little point in buying lingerie that never sees the light of day—sexy lingerie is meant to be shown off, not buried in a bottom drawer in your closet!
