It’s something only you are lucky enough to be able to gift to her, which makes buying lingerie a pretty romantic Valentine’s present… when you get it right, that is!
Here are the five things you need to know courtesy of Maria Ryan at Dorina to make sure her eyes light up for the best reasons when she unties the ribbon and opens the box this Valentine’s day.
Dorina ‘Chloe’ bra, £20, and brief, £10.
Buy for her, not for you
Be considerate when it comes to her natural lingerie style. You may want to see her in something different but don’t push her too far out of her comfort zone.
Know her size
This may sound like an obvious one but make sure you know her size. Check her drawers before buying!
Dorina ‘Jessica’ bra, £20, and briefs, £9, available at Figleaves.com.
Ask for advice
Don’t be afraid to ask for advice from the shop consultants! It’s a very personal gift so be sure to describe exactly what you need.
Choose something special
Everyday, plain underwear is not what she has in mind as a lingerie gift set. Instead, pick something a bit more luxe with expensive looking fabrics such as lace or satin.
Take her body type into account
Every woman will have a different body shape and therefore different styles to suit her. Be sure to know if she is curvy, sporty or hourglass to ensure the lingerie will look gorgeous on her.
