For Men: Tips for Buying Lingerie

Looking for that perfect gift? Want to buy something special for your sweetie? 

How about some Lingerie? It's intimate, sensual and can make your partner feel wonderful.
Not sure where to start? No worries, our knowledgeable team at The Girls can help you find the perfect item that will have you looking like a lingerie pro!

If your sweetie already shops at our store, we already know what she likes. We keep track of our client wish lists, favorite brands, most wants and must haves, taking the guess work out of it.

Don't know if she's a frequent buyer? No problem. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • The first thing to remember is that you may not like the same things. Try to think about what she would like. Women can tell what you bought for them, and what you really just bought for yourself, and guess which one she’s going to appreciate more?
  • Seek the advice of a professional sales assistant, such as one of our fitters at The Girls Bra Shop.  Our knowledge of lingerie and women’s shapes and sizes will definitely help you select the correct garment for your loved one.  
  • Do your research – know her size.  Research says that most men think their wife or girlfriend is a size 34B.  Since most women do not fit into the average category, it is best to check out her underwear drawer and write down her size.
  • Buy quality. Good lingerie is like jewelry – you get what you pay for.  Cheap lingerie will show signs of aging with minimal wear and washing.
  • Consider buying three matching panties for each bra.  Panties are washed daily, while bras can be worn several times before washing.
  • Avoid anything with the words “Control”, “Reducing”, etc.  You don’t want to send the wrong message.
  • Think about her color preference.   
  • Pajamas, nightgowns, and slippers are great options!
  • If the store offers to wrap your purchase, take them up on the offer.  You want this gift to be perfect from start to end.
  • Keep the receipt. Because lingerie is intimate, not all items can be returned. Make sure you know the store's return policy before buying. Just in case. 
  • When all else fails, a gift card fits every woman perfectly.

Men who shop in lingerie stores need not feel awkward and out of place.  Most women view this type of man as thoughtful, sophisticated, and trendy. We also secretly envy the lucky woman you're buying for. ;)
