The first thing you want to think about when shopping for your lady is that you are shopping for HER, not you. That statement cannot be said enough. Just because you find something sexy and alluring that you want to tear off of her the moment she puts in on does not mean that she’ll like or, or feels comfortable in it. Remember, you may think that it is sexy as hell, but there isn’t a thong riding up your ass, so pleaseee, before you select something for YOU, remember it’s for HER, and with this in mind choose your piece(s) of lingerie carefully. If she does not like it, or feel good in it, she’s not going to wear it. Don’t run out and get the most revealing, uncomfortable piece of lingerie known to man just because it is eye candy.
This will probably get your purchase used as a car towel or end up in the garbage can when you are at work. You want to ask yourself what would she wear. What does she like? What color suits her and best? Will she feel good and comfortable in this? This can be a very difficult task to say the least. However, knowing what types of lingerie are out there and what kinds she likes will very beneficial for you. So PAY ATTENTION!
The next thing to consider is the actual type of lingerie out there. You will want to make sure that you are finding what you are looking for and not just plain old panties and bras. You want something special that will suit her style and body. You will want to know the difference between a corset and a bustier. You might think there is none but there truly is. A corset is designed to cinch the waist and flatten the bust line to produce a specific amount of cleavage.
A bustier has bra like cups in it and does not have waist cinching. The difference between a Chemise and a Baby Doll is that a chemise is more conservative and a bit longer. The Baby Doll has bra like cups and is a bit shorter and more revealing. Baby Dolls often come with matching panties, as chemises usually do not. Then there are the teddies that are like a one-piece outfit. At SimplyDeliciousLingerie.com we hand selected each piece with every woman in mind, because as women, we know that what looks good on me, may not look good on you, someone else and vica versa. If you are not sure what would be the right choice, you can never go wrong with a sexy matching set. The bra and panty set is a great place to start with perhaps a matching satin robe.
So now you know the basic styles. Now you must know her size. Here is the most confusing part about lingerie shopping. There is more than one size type depending on the type of lingerie you purchase. When buying any lingerie that has cups in it you will have to know her bra size. This is the size that says 32 B, 36 D, 34 C, etc. This is critical to know or she will not fit into it properly and will not wear it. For all other types of lingerie you will have to know her shirt and dress size. You will want to know both the number and generic size. Look on her clothing to see if she is an 8, 10, 6, etc. then look on other articles to see if she wears a small, medium, or large. If you buy something too small she will think you want a smaller woman.
To buy something too big, she will think that you think she is fat…and if she thinks that, buddy I hate to tell you but you’re now in the dog house! You must have the right size so she knows you want her. Pay attention to HER needs. It’s not about YOU, after all it is about HER! Also by knowing her bra size it will eliminate getting a teddy or babydoll, fantasy costume, etc., that will be too tight and possibly rip after its first wearing. Yes, tight can look sexy, but we don’t want to bend over and have the entire ass rip out of your lingerie, why btw (by the way), is now no longer sexy at all.
Once you have decided on what style will suit her and make her feel comfortable, then now you need to think color. You need to be sure that this hides anything she feels is a flaw. An example would be if she is constantly complaining about her hips then you will not want to go with a teddy that outright exposes that area. Go through her draws and see what colors she likes. Pick out a color that enhances her eyes and skin tone. See what other lingerie she has. This will help you find the perfect style and color for her that she will enjoy. Take your time while shopping and don’t rush things.

This will allow her to fit the garment right for her body.
Detachable straps are always good too, especially with corsets and bustiers. This will allow her to determine if she is comfortable with out the straps or is almost like two outfits in one. When buying matching panties you will want to know what style she wears and get that kind. For garters and stocking make sure you are positive she likes these and they have adjustable straps. If you still are not sure what to buy and this is your first lingerie experience, keep in mind, you can never go wrong with sexy matching sets. Tutus are a good way to make it fun! See the photo below. Most importantly have fun shopping and make it exciting for her. When done right, you can expect to go out again and again together, which is the best fun, and as your relationship grows, you’ll begin to learn what why is was that feel for him in the beginning.
