Lingerie 101: A Man's Guide to Buying Lingerie for His Lady

Every warm-blooded heterosexual male has fantasized about his girlfriend wearing steamy lingerie. It’s not that dreaming about your wife or your girlfriend putting on nothing but a flimsy nightie or a daring crotchless panty to satisfy your fantasies isn’t good, it’s just that women need to feel comfortable and sexy about themselves first before getting into a sultry, seductive mood.

Learn how to buy lingerie for your lady. Going through the wide variety of lingerie pieces out there can be daunting, but if you know what she likes and what she’s comfortable in, finding the perfect bra or panty for her can be a lot easier than you think.

Sexy bras and panties are not designed for the pleasure of men alone. At Kaur's Laurel, our lingerie is designed to make women feel sexy, comfortable and confident; and we hold that above all else. Boyfriends and husbands enjoying the view are just a happy outcome that most ladies, whether they like to admit it or not, find flattering. The point is, when you shop for lingerie for your lady, be sure to consider her taste and preference first before your own. It’s easy to get lost in a maze of skimpy thongs and wild peephole bras you think will look awesome on her. But if she’s not comfortable wearing those kinds of lingerie, you might end up returning them; worse, they could very well be the reason why she would not want you to go near her tonight.

The Force Recon Marine

When it comes to buying lingerie for your lady, getting her size right becomes very important. Before you embark on your journey, you need to find out what her size is by doing some recon in her lingerie drawer while she’s at work or doing some errands downtown. Like a seasoned Force Recon marine, you need to gather all the facts about the mission before you do anything else. And the best way to do that is to raid her intimates when she’s not around. 

Obviously, if you’ve been married to this woman for years, then there’s probably no need for you to foray into her underwear drawer since you should already be familiar with her bra and panty size. But if it’s too early in your relationship for you to know such things about her, then perhaps it is best to just resort to snooping in her lingerie drawer without her knowledge. You can just tell her about your little recon mission after you’ve given her the new lingerie you got her or if she asks how you got her size. She wouldn't mind if you get it right. ;)

Look for bras and panties she often wears. This means she is comfortable in them and they’re most likely her right size. Pay close attention to the sizes and styles of the undergarments closer to the top of the drawer. These are pieces she actually enjoys, because the ill-fitting or undesired ones have probably sunk to the bottom or been thrown away.  Take note of the various numbers and letters associated with the size of each item, since different brands often differ in sizes. You might see a 32C, 10, S/M, M, L, and so on. Make sure to take note of these different sizes, and take a quick picture of the lingerie drawer with your phone. This will help you determine the right sizes and styles for her later on. 

The Savvy Fashionista

Not all men can honestly say that they are savvy when it comes to the latest fashion trends, or fashion in general; let alone the latest lingerie styles available in the market. But if you really want to buy your lady a nice piece of lingerie she will absolutely love, you might want to consider learning about the different lingerie styles and trends out there.

First of all, you need to figure out what type of lingerie you want to buy for her. Lingerie is a broad term. There are types of lingerie that should be worn under clothing and there are those that are meant for bed or the bedroom for both of you to enjoy. The two basic categories of lingerie are underwear and nightwear. Bras and panties fall into both categories, obviously. Then there are negligées, baby dolls, and chemises. Negligées and baby dolls generally fall under nightwear, while the chemise can be worn to bed, for play, or used as a slip under clothes.

The Layman's Guide to Lingerie ||

In choosing the design of the lingerie, you need to find something that highlights her best assets. Not just the parts you yourself find appealing, but the areas she herself believes to be flattering and sexy. If she has gorgeous and perky breasts, for instance, you should consider a plunging underwire bra to emphasize those two precious gifts. If her long legs are her best assets, try looking for adorable panties or sheer stockings and a garter belt that will showcase them. Don't forget to drop her some compliments. ;)

The Good Listener 

Being a good listener is a trait that not all men share, unfortunately. If you listen intently, however, you will find that picking out clothing and lingerie for your lady is really not that difficult. Women often drop hints like when you’re in a mall and she says, “What a nice dress. It'll go perfectly with my boots, don’t you think?” or “Oh wow! Elaine, from the office, has that exact blouse and she looks lovely in it.” When a woman tells you she likes something, you should take a mental note on that. And when you buy that exact item for her birthday, she will know that you were listening. Women often have a stellar memory for small details you may overlook.

But like I said, listening is really not a trait that every guy shares. So, the key to figuring out what she actually likes is to the common denominator in her wardrobe. What colors do you often see her wear? What style of clothing, or in this case, what type of bra or panty do you find in her underwear drawer? Do most of her bras have underwire? Does she prefer demi cups or full coverage bras? Does she love plunging necklines or balconettes? Even if you’re not as good a listener as you want to be, learning to observe and deduce can really go a long way.
