— VALENTINE'S DAY GENTLEMAN'S GIFT GUIDE —
Pick for her personality
Think about what she likes – you possibly have an idea of her tastes, or she may have hinted previously. Her current lingerie collection can give you a good idea of the styles she generally goes for, but don’t be afraid to push the boundaries a little bit. An outgoing personality may indulge in more provocative, daring styles, such as our sheer lace-cup bras, ‘Barely There’ knickers and suspender sets, while if she is more of a girly girl she may prefer a bit more coverage, perhaps with the delicately pretty ‘Shadow Wrapped’ set.
Having a look at her wardrobe can also give you an idea as to shades she normally goes for, as some colours are more flattering with certain skin tones and hair colours than others. Black is always a safe option if you are unsure. Make sure you buy for what she likes – if she tends to go for French knickers rather than thongs (or vice versa) she’ll appreciate you buying to suit her style. Whichever style you decide on, a matching set will complete the look.
Picking the right size
Picking the right size bra is key, especially for curvier ladies, so if you’re not sure of her size and don’t want to ask, take a sneak peak in her lingerie drawer. Check the labels for her bra size (it will be a number and letter combination, such as 30D or 34FF), as well as her knicker size. Our knickers come in sizes 8, 10, 12 and 14 and our suspenders come in S/M and M/L – so if she is an 8 or 10 in knicker sizes she would be a S/M in suspender sizes, or M/L if she is a 12 or 14.
For additional help, please see our size guide. Be rest assured that if it doesn’t fit, we will be happy to exchange to a different size or refund any unworn items.
Pick for the occasion
We like to think that all our lingerie is supportive enough for everyday but seductive enough for evening. However, you may want to think about where you think she’ll be likely to wear the lingerie. Is it for a particular occasion or as an everyday indulgence? Plunge style bras are often better for under low cut tops and dresses and will show off her curves, whilst balconnette styles will give a pretty, uplifted shape. Seductive fabrics such as laces are always perfect for the bedroom, but a sleeker style may fit better under clothing.
Presentation is key
Don’t worry about wrapping; we’ve got it covered. All of our lingerie comes beautifully gift wrapped in our signature bespoke keep-sake boxes as standard and at no extra cost. If you wish to include a personal note from you to her, or you want the prices removed from the labels, we are happy to do so, just let us know at email@example.com. You can send your gift direct to her whatever her location by adding a separate delivery address in addition to the billing address at the check-out.
