Lingerie Shopping Tips (for your friend)

Updated on February 23, 2010

Its no secret!

Go ahead, just do it!

So its a beautiful Sunday in late January, and you're wondering what to do. How about Lingerie Shopping! I know, you may be scared, and you may even be a sissy, but sometimes you have to be brave. I have a few tips to make this as simple and well planned as possible. You are not only going shopping, but you're going to Victoria's Secret! Yes, its the big time, and you'll be happy with the quality as well as knowing that you did it.

Tip 1: Don't smell like beer or cigarettes! If you've been nervously chain smoking in your car with the windows closed, you're going to smell terrible, and the girls won't want to go near you. Wear something appropriate (I'm thinking jeans and a clean shirt) and chew gum of a breath mint.

Tip 2: Have a story ready! You'll walk in as casually as possible and probably begin to drool. Wipe it off and calm down. You're not robbing a store you are simply buying clothes. Now, walk in and look around. If you notice that you are visibly excited try to ignore it and continue. An attractive  salesgirl will come up to you and ask if she can help.

Tip 3: DON'T PANIC! You have this all planned out so there's nothing to worry about. You are looking for a gift for your friend, simple as that. That means that the sky's the limit now as to what you will buy, and how much you'll spend. You'll have to make some of the details up as you go along.

Tip 4: Have a name ready for your imaginary friend. Use my name if you want, this way you know the last name too. The secret to successful lying to to be prepared. So now you have a name.

"Yes, I'd like to buy my friend Teresa something nice. I'm just not sure what to get her."

Tip 5: You need to have her size in mind because you will be asked. Rather than say she's exactly the same size as you, be a little creative. Pick a height within a couple of inches of your own. As for her weight, you have no idea but you'd have to guess about (within 10 or 20 pounds of your own).

There you are! You're in the worlds most famous lingerie store, there are several very hot girls (they're always hot!) ready and willing to help you, and you have money to spend. Enjoy yourself. You've been very brave and you deserve a treat.

The easiest thing to start with is probably a teddy or babydoll nightie. There is a large selection and you will have some flexibility with the size. And of course you'll need to buy her matching panties! Some will come with a panty or thong, but now you have an excuse to hit the panty section. The thing is, your friend needs to be more bold with her lingerie, and you are going to be nice enough to buy her only the silkiest, sexiest things they have.

Final Tip: If you choke at the doorway or when approached by one of the girls, just say you have a phone call and excuse yourself. You can always come back later or another day.

These are just a few tips for the average lingerie lover out there.The more you do things that scare you the better you'll feel about yourself.

Go For It girls! If not now, when?
