Bra and Lingerie Shopping Tips For Partners

At Little Intimates we know Lingerie Shopping can be intimidating at the best of times, so when it isn’t for yourself, well, we can only imagine.  

Therefore we hope this page contains advice that will help you choose the perfect gift.

We’ve got tips on how to work out what she might really like, what size to buy and as well as some recommendations.

What’s her size?

When buying bras, the sizing is critical. The best thing to do is take a peek in her underwear drawer! What size are most of her current bras? Her bra size will consist of a number (band size) followed by a letter (cup size) e.g. 10B. (Sports bras can be different).  If you can, take note of how wide the band is around the back (thin and strappy or wider for comfort).

While you’re there check her knickers too. They can be either a numerical size e.g 10 or letter style (e.g. XS, S, M, L, XL etc.).

If it’s too hard to check out her underwear drawer without getting caught, maybe she has a close friend who knows her size?  OR as a fall back consider a sexy chemise, pyjamas or a gift certificate instead.

And if it doesn’t fit, it’s not the end of the world – most companies are happy to do an exchange.

What’s her colour?

Although you might think she looks hot in a slinky red number, she might hate wearing red. If you want to really score some brownie points, think about what colours she likes.

What does she usually wear? Maybe have another look in the underwear drawer to see what she seems to like.

What’s her style?

This is where the real fun comes in. Again, you might get an idea of what she likes from her underwear drawer. But, if you’re buying her a gift, you probably don’t want to get her a plain, everyday bra.

Get her something that’s pretty and feminine.

Have a look at our style guide and see if you can work out which styles she tends to wear. Then you can search our site for that style.

The same goes for panties. Some women love thongs and some hate them. If you don’t see any in her drawer, chances are she’s not a fan. So stick with the styles she already has.
