Gentlemen Prefer Lingerie: Mens’ Guide to Gift Giving


It’s beginning to look a lot like….the most festive, fun and flirty time of the year!   What better way is there for all you mistletoe-loving guys to pamper your girl this holiday season than by surprising her with some luscious new lingerie?  Truly, few things will warm your woman’s heart more than knowing you took the time during the hectic holidays to personally select some sexy little items for her to slip into.

Are you trembling at the thought of finding just the right little somethin’ that she’ll love?

If you keep in mind that lingerie is a gift for both of you then you’ll do great.  Look for lingerie offering the best possible fit, fine fabrics, plus favourite colours and styles to bring out your girl’s full feminine sensuality, which will in turn delight your masculine senses.  Talk about win-win!  Say “Yes” to glamorous, sophisticated styles that leave a little to the imagination.  Meaning, a big “No” to gifting something like a flesh-toned, rubber bikini set.  Super tarty is out of the question for a holiday gift!

Size Matters

Whoever said that “size doesn’t matter” wasn’t talking about lingerie!  Correct fit is crucial when choosing lingerie your girl will feel good in.  If you’ve done a little research in your lady’s lingerie drawer and noted her bra cup and panty sizes, I tip my hat to you!  If you can’t get your hands on her exact sizing, consider a chemise or babydoll style.  With sexy lines that aren’t too clingy, these styles are often available in generic sizes of Extra Small up to Extra Large, making them wonderfully easy to fit.

In fact, a delectable satin or silk chemise is a MUST as an essential part of every lady’s lingerie repertoire.  For a caress to her skin that’s almost as wonderful as your touch (but not quite!), choose this gorgeous satin chemise by Change of Scandinavia, also available in champagne and black.

Sheer Desire Chemise by Blush Lingerie

Here’s a little confection I’d personally love to unwrap this year.  This semi-sheer lacy chemise by Blush is an easy-fitting number with scalloped lace detail.  Match it up with semi-sheer lace Brazilian panties….that is, if you can handle all that spice!

If you’re totally baffled about sizing, avoid gifting your girl with padded and/or underwired lingerie since these styles are meant to fit her shape exactly.  Check out our Shop By Size page, a handy tool for browsing panties, camisoles, nightgowns and more, according to her size (it’s a real time-saver!).

The Colour of Love

With lingerie in all the colours of the rainbow, how’s a guy to choose the right shade?  Browse her clothes and note if they’re, for example, mainly softer pastels, or perhaps deeper jewel tones.  If she’s all about neutrals, stay away from electric blue!  If in doubt, black is a big pleaser that seems to be the hot favourite of both sexes– its always stylish, sultry and also most slimming.
