So valentines day is often a tricky one to get right! most men will go for the easy route of what they see in the card shops and convenient stores i.e chocolates, flowers and teddies. There are some men that will put more thought into the gifts and shop around for the present.
I have never been lucky enough to receive underwear for Valentine’s day, but with the help of John Lewis, my partner managed to pick me the perfect set! John Lewis has put together the simple plan on how to buy underwear for a loved one, doesn’t have to be valentines day to buy underwear.
My partner followed the below 4 simple steps and he managed to get me the right size! and picked me a lovely set that I would wear. You can buy nice underwear but its great to have a set that you can also wear every day. I think it’s very important to try and get the right size! you really don’t want to be buying her a bigger size then what she is, I think she would prefer you to even buy a size smaller.
I have this gorgeous lingerie set in black from Elle Macpherson Body Zest plunge bra, retails at £36 also comes in a pink shell colour which is defiantly also a colour I often wear. The matching knickers are Elle Macpherson Body Zest lace bikini briefs, retails at £23.
The sizes are true to size and fit perfectly so comfortable and sophisticated, Elle Macpherson isn’t a brand I have had before but defiantly one I will be ordering from again. I love the contrast of colour on the straps at the back, the tassel trim at the front is my favourite, I also really like the lace on the back of the bra.
At home: Check surrounding area is clear and locate underwear drawer. Look for bra size which is a number and a letter, e.g. 34C. Remember to also check size of briefs; these usually follow dress sizes, e.g. 8, 10, 12 etc.
At home: Consider what she normally wears – best not to go for a completely different style. Instead, push the boat out – perhaps a designer label or luxury line. Familiarise yourself with the brands she buys.
At home: Again check coast is clear. Look in wardrobe for recurring colour theme. Lots of light-coloured clothes? Go for white and ivory. Black is good under darker clothing. Pretty and fashionable brights are great alternatives. Red’s a popular choice, but be careful – it’s also the most returned!
Online: Access computer, navigate to Lingerie, and search for target either by type of lingerie, colour or by brand. Alternatively, visit a John Lewis shop, and move directly to target destination; Lingerie department. (Take note: you’ll draw a blank in John Lewis at home branches).
