7 Tips On How To Buy Her Lingerie She'll Love

Lingerie is a special gift for your partner or friend. For partners, lingerie is an intimate way to deepen your connection with one another. For friends, it’s a fun gift you know they’ll get a lot of use from. For both, lingerie is a way to celebrate their body, who’s in that body, and why they’re special. After all, lingerie isn’t about the people who see it, but the people who wear it.

Knowing how to buy her lingerie then means knowing who it is you’re buying it for. It also means knowing where to get it and why. To help, we’ve developed this ultimate lingerie gift guide with a focus on Mentionables, which makes buying lingerie convenient, easy, and puts the focus on the lingerie, with their classy styles, model-free photos, pretty prices and inclusive sizing. By the end of this guide, you’ll feel a newfound confidence when buying her lingerie.

Where To Buy Lingerie 

While there are many options for buying lingerie, we recommend Mentionables. Other lingerie sites feature models wearing the lingerie. There’s nothing wrong with that, but Mentionables’ model-free approach means an easier shopping experience, especially if kids accidentally catch a peek at what you’re buying. Even better, it means seeing lingerie in its purest form without someone else wearing it. That way, you’ll be able to better envision her in it, helping you to make a choice that’ll make her happy.

When To Give Lingerie As A Gift

Lingerie can be given as a gift whenever you want. You know who you’re buying the lingerie for, so you also know when they’ll receive their gift the best. However, there are a few occasions lingerie pairs best with. For partners, these include giving it as a private birthday or Christmas gift, for an anniversary, during Valentine’s Day, or during a romantic evening together. For friends, these include giving it as a bridal shower gift, during a bachelorette party, or during Galentine’s Day.

Mentionables makes this easy as well since you can make your purchase from them whenever you need. Most orders are processed within 1-2 business days and arrive within 7-10. Priority shipping is also available for those last-minute needs.

7 Tips On How To Buy Her Lingerie She'll Love

Lingerie can be a tricky gift to buy, but if done right, it can be an amazing and thoughtful surprise for your partner or friend. Here are seven tips to help you buy lingerie that she will love.

1. Know Her Size

Knowing her size is crucial when buying her lingerie. It's important to make sure the lingerie fits her properly to ensure she feels comfortable and confident wearing it. If you're unsure about her size though, sneak a peek at her existing lingerie or take a look at the labels of her clothes to get an idea of what size she wears. If you feel uncomfortable with that, you can also ask her outright and explain it’s for an upcoming gift. This builds her anticipation of receiving it but doesn’t give away the surprise either. In short, it’s a win-win for everyone!

In addition, once you know this, Mentionables makes buying the right size simple with their easy-to-follow sizing chart.

2. Pay Attention To Her Style

Take note of her personal style when shopping for lingerie. Is she into lacy and delicate pieces or does she prefer something more simple and comfortable? It's important to consider her preferences and choose lingerie that matches her style.

To turn this into a fun experience, plan a shopping date together. Don’t buy the gift then though. Just spend time being with her and talking to her about what she prefers. Buy her the lingerie later and give it to her during one of the days we mentioned above.

Mentionables makes this easy as well with options for slips, babydolls, and more. It also provides users with a style guide, so they can feel more comfortable with the style they’re choosing.

3. Consider The Occasion

When buying lingerie, consider the occasion or event you're buying it for. A bachelorette party may call for more playful and daring pieces, while a bridal shower may require something more elegant and sophisticated.

4. Opt For Comfortable Fabric

Comfort is key when it comes to lingerie. Choose lingerie made of soft and breathable fabrics that feel comfortable against the skin. Materials such as cotton, silk, and microfiber are great options. This is another opportunity to talk about her preferences.

5. Stick To Neutral Colors

If you're unsure about what color to choose, stick to neutral tones such as black, white, or nude. These colors are timeless and versatile and can be worn on any occasion.

6. Consider Accessories

Accessories such as stockings, garters, and robes can add a touch of glamor and sophistication to lingerie. Consider using Mentionables to add these pieces to complete the look and make the gift even more special. You can add these ideas to your shopping date, and learn more about her and what she likes as a result.

7. Don't Be Afraid To Ask For Help

If you're still unsure about what to choose, don't be afraid to ask for help. Lingerie sales associates are trained to help you find the perfect piece for your partner or friend. They can provide guidance on sizing, style, and fabric and can help you choose the perfect lingerie for any occasion.
