5 Tips for Men Buying Lingerie
But don’t give up. Be brave. Be Bold. Buy lingerie!
We can help you make it through that first purchase without hyperventilating, blacking out, or getting too distracted. And when you start to feel overwhelmed, just remember these five tips for men buying lingerie.
1. Timing is Everything
For men, learning to buy lingerie is a little like cooking. You don’t want to add too much spice too quickly. Knowing when you’ve reached that pivotal point in your relationship when it’s okay to buy lingerie as a gift is crucial. If she’s let you see her without makeup it’s probably okay. If she has “a drawer” at your house it is okay. If you’ve met her parents it’s definitely okay.
2. Sizing Is Crucial
Sizing lingerie is crucial for fit and comfort. Buying a corset isn’t like buying a pair of jeans—you can’t just cinch a loose one up with a belt. But asking a woman what size she wears can be a ticket to the doghouse. Instead, be a little sneaky. Take a peak and the labels on the clothing she already wears (check the closet or volunteer to do the laundry). Don’t forget: plus sized lingerie comes in all sorts of sexy styles.
Walking into a lingerie store is like diving headfirst into outer space. It’s hard to breathe, you’ll get lost in seconds, and the natives might look at you funny. Thankfully our online lingerie store makes shopping easy. You can browse at your leisure, read “the articles” to get some ideas, and have the packages delivered discretely to your door so you don’t ruin a surprise by bringing home a frilly pink bag.
4. Buy for Her Personality (Not Your Fantasy)
It’s okay to shop for fantasy lingerie if you’re both into that sort of thing but only buy what she’s comfortable wearing. If your lover is meek and mild, X-rated lingerie might be embarrassing. On the other hand, if she loves to walk on the wild side, this leopard print bra and crotchless panty set might be perfect.
5. Lingerie Isn’t Just for Playtime
Women love wearing lingerie every day. It’s sexy and empowering and not just for the bedroom. If it’s your first time buying lingerie it might be safer to stick to something sexy yet practical like a matching bra and panty set.
