It’s not quite a selfless act, buying your girlfriend lingerie. However, many men fall in to the trap of making it all about them. Get the perfect piece and you’ll not on make her incredibly happy but also you’ll get your just rewards too.
To excite sexual desires and to let her inner showgirl run wild…
What do women want? Generally, the male species will never know but from lingerie we thought we would get in some expert help; Sarah Jones, the lovely looking lady behind the fashion and lifestyle site Style On The Couch. She quite rightly pointed out that underwear, like all fashion, is an outward extension of our personalities. Clearly, we need help…. Sarah…
I write a weekly lingerie feature and as a result I get a lot of questions from both men and women about where to buy the ‘perfect’ style of lingerie they are searching for to make themselves or their partner feel good. I also hear the many things women wish for from their undergarments; such as the desire to feel sexy, the wish to feel curvaceous, the wish to try something different…. and now you can help her fulfil those desires.
Below is a short guide that includes my favourite brands for these different “wishes” – I hope you find a little inspiration here!
I desire: glamour
For breathtakingly glamorous lingerie, I look to collections inspired by eras full of grace and beauty. La Perla’s ‘mezzanotte’ and ‘smoking’ collections capture the charm of the 20s, whilst What Katie Did is the epitome of Hollywood glamour and chic.
I wish: for impact
Provocative, dominant and sexy – for the woman who oozes self confidence, turn to Atelier Bordelle. Seductive and luxurious, this is the brand that will unleash her inner goddess. A collection for the fashionable minded (their cage dresses may be worn as outerwear), Bordelle frames the curves of the body like nobody’s business. Further impact can be found at Kiki de Montparnasse, undoubtedly “the” collection for the femme fatale.
I desire: classic, chic and sexy
Classic, sensual lingerie is often high on a wish list for many women. For chic brands that are made to the highest standard I look to La Perla’s signature collections; Fleur of England’s romantic, feminine charm and Chantelle’s French allure.
I wish: to play…
To excite sexual desires and to let her inner showgirl run wild, turn to Lascivious’s fringed bodysuits and Nichole de Carle’s fashion forward designs. These brands are both very unique in the way they emphasis playfulness – this lingerie is the ultimate weapon of seduction.
I desire: a fresh and youthful look….
For the lady who desires lingerie with a fresh and youthful appeal, look no further than Blush’s playful sensuality and Zinke’s pretty hues. Such lingerie will appeal to the woman who likes to lounge and layer – Blush in particular is affordable and flirtatious designs that retain their romantic appeal.
I hope this post has opened your mind to the range and styles of lingerie available and how your choices really matter. One thing I would like to say is that whilst buying lingerie for a lover may be a tricky business, considering her personality will go a long way towards finding the perfect piece. Get the sizing right (do your research!), a little wine, a little love and a little sense of adventure will lead you in the right direction.
