How to Pick Lingerie for a Spouse
Do the Detective Work
Find out if she would like a lingerie gift. She might not be comfortable with you buying lingerie for her but might still want it. In this case, pick a gift card to a lingerie store or website in lieu of lingerie itself.
Know what her size is before you leave the house to go shopping. Your spouse's size has probably changed since you were dating. Visit your bedroom and look at the labels in her clothing and underwear to learn her size.
Seek help by browsing online at www.undercoverwear.com if you are uncomfortable going into stores.
Shop for Lingerie for Your Spouse
Ask a salesperson for help. Retailers will gladly help a man pick lingerie for his spouse. Salespeople can make suggestions, explain your options and ask questions that will help you think about what to buy for your wife or girlfriend.
Choose what kind. Maybe she is out of stockings or all of her pantyhose have runs in them. Perhaps she has more bras than panties. Maybe she has too many nightgowns and you both think it's time for a teddy.
Think about what she needs if you are going for a more practical gift. If all her panties have holes in them and her bras are worn thin, you have your answer.
Try something new if you want to spice up your sex life. If you think your wife or girlfriend would like it, opt for something sexy that she doesn't already own, like a corset or a babydoll.
Decide whether to buy something you'll both drool over, something for everyday, or sleepwear. You might choose something that's seductive enough to wear for intimate moments and comfortable enough to sleep in, such as a chemise or sheer gown.
