How To Purchase Lingerie For That Special Someone


Purchasing lingerie for the one you love can be time consuming. Even more complicated when you have no idea what size she wears or the actual style she likes. When traveling abroad and purchasing lingerie in Australia, there are a assortment of styles and many shops guarantee the quality of the merchandise. Being in tuned with her can also help you with making choices when it comes to purchasing a special gift for that special occasion.

If you cannot travel abroad to make a purchase from Australia, find an online site that sells quality lingerie. Women love when a man purchases lingerie for them. Especially when its unique, original and comes from the heart. Could you imagine the look on her face when a package addressed to her arrives from Australia? She would be elated!


Choosing Size

When purchasing lingerie in Australia find out, what size she wears. You may believe she is 6, when really she is a 10. Make sure the size of the piece you are choosing is accurate. Do you really want to find out what happens when you purchase the wrong size? When she is out search the drawers and look for the tags. Sometimes women cut the tags out of their clothing. Be a visionary and ask publicly if you can’t get an answer.There is always a woman that would be happy to disclose what size they wear if you clearly explain why you are asking. After you receive it jot it down or place it in your cellphone for safe keeping.

Sizes can vary so ask if you can return it, should it not fit. Look at the size chart that is provided. For example if she's an 8 and the size chart says, fits sizes 6-10. This means she is right in between a 6 and 10 so you are safe.


Choosing Style

So now that you had the opportunity to locate the size, it’s time to choose the style. When buying in Australia there are so many choices. If you have always had an eye for what she wears you can figure out her style. Does she wear boy shorts, thongs or camisoles? What are her favorite colors? Does she like satin, silk or cotton? Being aware of her likes and dislikes will make it easier for you to choose her lingerie.


Price Tag Shock

If you are more conservative think a little outside the box. She wants to look beautiful for you, so relax. She will be in awe of your choice. Good quality lingerie is not cheap. If you choose to purchase lower quality lingerie, after a couple of uses it loses its form or it can shrink. Not only will she not wear it again, but she will tuck it away in a drawer and that will be the last you see of it.

To make your life a little easier it’s highly recommended that you do not purchase lingerie with feathers or glitter. Glitter is rough and feathers fall-off, leaving a mess in the wake of your gift giving. Avoid vinyl, plastic or leather unless you believe she will wear it, don't purchase it. There are only a small percentage of women who like unusual lingerie. The higher percentage enjoy silk and satin.

Finally, if all else fails and you are still uncertain with what to purchase either buy a gift certificate or go purchase the lingerie together.

Awesome tips! Personally I prefer to choose my own lingerie because if I do not like something I would not wear it no matter who gave it or how costly it is. Hub Voted and liked on fb.

Great tips. I do have a (not so) fond memory of searching frantically through the drawers to find the size in order to buy her some surprise lingerie when we started to date. I got caught red ( or pink) handed and had to explain myself. Sounded lame and perverse!!! We had a good laugh about it later, thankfully. And yes, she did get some hot /expensive underwear ;-)

Great visuals and an informative hub. I have visited Victoria Secrets many times and have walked away empty handed because my wife is so particular about her lingerie I'm afraid to she won't like my choices although I do love her choices. Perhaps I will get her to read this hub. Voted up.

one2get2no: Her reading the hub would be nice. If you pay close attention to what she likes, there won't be any problem with picking out lingerie. Choose what she likes and both of you will be happy. "_
