However, choosing sexy lingerie for the first time is rarely easy, especially if you have no clue what to look for. If you do decide to shop for lingerie for Valentine’s Day, there is plenty of great garments to choose from, so finding something special for your Valentine is certainly possible. has some of the best lingerie in the UK, so we know a thing or two about choosing sexy lingerie. Here’s everything you need to know:


Always know her lingerie size

Before you shop for lingerie for Valentine’s Day, you need to know the most important rule - know her size. It’s obvious yet often overlooked, as many people use guesswork and rough estimates when it comes to choosing sexy lingerie sizes for their partner. Don’t even take the risk, as the last thing you want is to buy lingerie that doesn’t fit her.

There a many simple methods you can use to find out her sizes. The first is to have a quick look through her underwear drawer and check some garments there for sizes, or you can have a quick peek at the size when doing laundry. Another option is to ask one of her friends for her exact measurements, although this does increase the chances of her discovering your plans should her friend accidentally reveal your plans. If you want to try and be subtle, why not check her bra size the next time you’re taking it off in the bedroom. Make sure you get her waist size too, although this is bit easier as you can check her jeans.


Work out what sexy lingerie she likes to wear

A reason why it’s good to check her underwear drawer or laundry is that it gives you a chance to see what styles she likes to wear. From the overall style of the bra to certain brands, you want to get an idea of what she enjoys wearing and then try choosing sexy lingerie of that. It can be rather difficult if you have no idea what any of her underwear comes from or about the specific styles and designs. Again, asking friends is always a good way to get this info, although you can try dropping subtle hints to your partner at the right opportunity. For example, why not pay her a compliment on the lingerie she is currently wearing, asking where she got it from or what style it is.


Think carefully about what underwear she likes wears

No two bras are the same. The chances are your girlfriend has a selection of bras that she wears for different occasions and moods, from everyday underwear to her sexy lingerie. So, the bra she wears around the house probably isn't the best inspiration for an alluring Valentine’s Day lingerie gift! You want to think about the different underwear you see her wear and what she would enjoy wearing when you get down and dirty. For instance, if you have never seen her wear a certain colour, it’s probably not a good idea to get sexy lingerie in this colour! Should you know her favourite colour or have an idea based on what she wears, then it’s a good idea to get something in this colour. If you’re really stuck for inspiration, try going for something in black - it’s a timeless colour for lingerie that rarely fails to disappoint.


Things to remember when you buy sexy lingerie online

Buying lingerie online takes away the stress and mild embarrassment some feel when buying in stores. You have the freedom of the internet to browse any and all sites, which is certainly one of the least stressful ways to shop for lingerie. However, there are some pitfalls you want to avoid if you do choose to buy lingerie online. For one, don’t buy lingerie sets that come with fixed number sizes (e.g. size 8, 10, 12, etc.) as this can often be a mismatch for many females that have different chest and waist sizes.

Always go for accurate items that are the exact measurements you have for your partner - it guarantees the best fitting items possible. Bras can be quite difficult to understand. Basically, the number (known as the band size) refers to the width of her chest, while the letters reference the cup size. Always make sure you select the correct cup and band sizes, which you should already know from working out her measurements!


Tips for not getting overwhelmed when shopping in lingerie stores

There are many great lingerie stores in the UK, all of which offer a wide range of sexy lingerie garments that make for the perfect Valentine’s gift. However, shopping in store is often a daunting experience, especially if you don’t know any of the lingerie lingo. This means knowing the differences between babydolls and chemises, understanding what items work for certain body types, and generally brushing up on the different types of lingerie out there. So, it’s a very good idea to do some quick research online to familiarise yourself with different lingerie terminology.

Thankfully, shop assistants are a great help when shopping in store, as they can provide you with expert advice on buying lingerie. If you’re unsure of anything, don’t be afraid to ask them for assistance - they’ve dealt with countless men buying underwear for their partners, so there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. In fact, you will probably find the entire experience much easier with the help of a shop assistant! Now it's time to buy sexy lingerie. Let's go!
