THE BASIC OF BUYING LINGERIE
If you’re thinking about buying lingerie for that special someone in your life and you’re not quite sure where to start, this lingerie guide for men is for you. Of course, we, at Kaja Couture, are available to answer any other queries you might have by phone or you can reach out on our social media platforms.
Tip #1 Research her bra size
You can flat out ask your lady what bra size she wears but if you are planning a surprise you might want to think of a more subtle way to get her lingerie details, like sneaking a peek through her lingerie drawer and choosing something that you know fits her best. You could take a picture of the label that will show the sizing in numbers and letters, e.g., 32FF, where 32 is her back/band size and FF is her breast size.
You can always get more advice from our customer advisors on how to use this size to buy lingerie pieces from different brands.
Tip #2 Get her dress size as well
Lingerie is more than bras so you should note her dress size too (like S, M, L, or 8, 10, 12, etc.) in case you want to buy matching accessories like briefs and garter belt or an additional item like a pajamas or robe. Take note of the size of her panties and maybe a dress or top that she wears for this information. Again, our experienced team will help you compare sizing for different brands and items so you get the right fit for her.
Tip #3 Think of what she likes
Remember it’s all about what’s going to make her happy and look her best. Think of what styles of lingerie you noticed make her feel and look most sexy and confident. A low-cut bra? Skimpy undies? What colors does she love or look most attractive in? Does she like simple or really fancy styles? These are all good questions that should set you in the right direction for your purchase.
If you need more suggestions on what will most enhance your sweetheart’s shape and best assets, we can guide you through styles so you know exactly what to look for with confidence.
Tip #4 Consider the occasion
Of course, you can buy lingerie for your darling just because… However, certain pieces will mean more on different occasions. It will also help you to determine what color options, fabrics and styles will be optimal for your gift.
For example, for Valentine’s Day, a lacy, red, raunchy bra set might be just the ticket to your gal’s heart but a timeless piece like a beautiful silk nightgown or an elegant robe could make her feel more cherished and lady like for her birthday or wedding anniversary.
Also, considering the timing of the occasion will let you know when you need the item to arrive from us, especially at busy periods like Christmas and Valentine’s.
Tip #5 Still not sure? This is how to still ace it.
If you still find yourself in indecision about what to get your sweetheart, then we suggest a gift card. We call it the ‘gift of choice’ so she can redeem it for something she really wants. Gift cards, especially those that can be sent by email like ours, are really handy if you are short on time too.
Tip #6 Give it the look of love
Whatever you buy, it needs to be lovingly wrapped. We are happy to help you offer your treat with the look of love. Learn more about our gift wrapped and handwritten message services
However, if you decide to tackle that task yourself, we suggest you keep on the brand labels, but you will want to ensure all price tags are off or blocked out and there is no receipt inside your parcel when you present it to your darling as this is more tasteful.
You can keep those things safely tucked away in case they are needed for exchange at a later date (hopefully not!). Adding a little card or handwritten love note, is the perfect finishing touch so she knows how much you were thinking of her.
