A Smart guide to buying lingerie

Every woman dreams of it, even if she won’t admit the fact. That perfect set of underwear that will make her feel like a goddess, like a beauty queen, or like the woman you first married. So why not give the gift of adoration this Valentine’s day?

While relegated to the conventional gift pile, lingerie is actually an intensely personal gift that communicates reams more than, “You. This. Now.”

Well, at least to the ladies. So this Valentine’s day, why not ditch the flowers and candy?

The world of lingerie may be strange and foreign, but we’re ready to equip you with all the basics you’ll need to know in order to knock her socks (and a few other pieces of clothing) off. The first rule of lingerie shopping is to know your woman’s size.

In most cases, women’s intimates are not a small, medium and large business, so walking into a lingerie store without the foggiest idea of her bust size will lead to an embarrassing round of interrogation. (How tall is she? How much does she weigh? Does she have a broad back? Does she have a small back? Does she have large breasts? Does she …)

Don’t just look through a Victoria’s Secret catalogue and pick out what looks trendy.

Keep an eye out for her favorite color or a pattern that she’ll be wild over. When you find it, pay close attention to quality.

There are beautiful pieces in almost every price range, but as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for.

Higher priced items are generally going to be the best quality. But it is mostly about the feel. If the lace is scratchy, don’t buy it.

And while you may have a mental picture of what you’d like to see your woman in, remember that she has to like the idea, too.

If she doesn’t wear thongs, said Hughes, she probably won’t wear one regularly, even if you are the one who buys it. The same goes for a woman who generally wears demi-cup bras.

She’s probably not going to be as fond of a full coverage set, and a large-busted woman is probably not going to be comfortable in a stringy, sheer bra that does little for support.

A bra should be beautiful, should be sexy and it has to fit well, who stocks everything from a 32 A to a 40 H. If you have someone who is very round and very full, you are not going to put her in a triangle bra because everything will just spill out the sides.

Most of those ads you see from Victoria’s Secret? That’s not a sexy look. Those are implants, and there’s nothing less sexy than a woman spilling half way out of her bra or out of the sides of her bra.”

This doesn’t mean the combination has to be boring.

Duran recommended buying something slightly racier than you think your girlfriend or wife would pick out herself.

Most women will step up to the suggestion and delight their man in the process.

Still, that’s not carte blanche to purchase a crotchless teddy. But if the shoe fits … well, have fun, kids.
