With time ticking down to Christmas, you may have already started thinking about buying some lingerie for a Christmas present. Over the coming weeks I’ll be writing up some posts on ideas for Christmas presents with some specific lingerie recommendations, but I thought it might be a good idea to start out with some general guidelines. So often people (fellas, I’m looking at you here) get buying lingerie wrong, but done correctly, it’s a thoughtful gift that says you find your partner sexy and exciting.

There's no reason you can't choose some sexy lingerie that both of you will like.

The trick, as the marketeers would say, is to know your target market. Don’t go straight for the leather corset if it’s the first piece of underwear you’ve bought for her, unless you know it’s something she’s been coveting and desperately wants. The great thing is that there’s plenty of really sexy underwear out there that any woman would be thrilled to receive, so there’s no need to go crazy.

Babydolls can be very sexy and unintimidating if you’re looking for something for nightwear, or if you want to go for underwear, choose a sexy pair of knickers, or take a look at the stockings with garters attached – they are much sexier than tights, but a lot less fuss than separate garters and suspenders, so are much less likely to be received with a rolling of the eyes.

Judge how risque your partner likes their lingerie to be, and then select an item that they will enjoy wearing – after all, you’re more likely to see them in it more than once if it’s something they might have picked themselves.

When you’ve found something you’ll both like, then make sure you get the sizing right. Plus Size Lingerie fits the larger woman, and specialist retailer,, has a brilliant sizing guide to help you pick the correct size for the lady in your life.
