Valentine’s Day is almost here and I’m going to bet there’s still some men who don’t have a clue what to buy their better half. Thankfully, I have the John Lewis Partner’s Guide To Buying Lingerie. Yep, those clever folk over at John Lewis have put together a little guide to help the men in our lives surprise us with some gorgeous lingerie on Valentine’s Day.
I’m very lucky with Mick as he’s the best present buyer ever and he’s pretty good at knowing what I like and what size I am, but I know that some men are clueless when it comes to these things. So if your man hasn’t got you that gift yet, leave this blog post open for him. You can thank me later. Fellas, this one’s for you … the John Lewis Partner’s Guide To Buying Lingerie.
John Lewis Partner’s Guide To Buying Lingerie
At Home – Check the surrounding area is clear and locate the underwear drawer (Mission Impossible theme tune optional). Look for bra size which is a number and a letter, e.g. 34C (those were the days). Remember to also check size of briefs; these usually follow dress sizes, e.g. 8, 10, 12 etc (I wish!).
At Home – Consider what she normally wears – best not to go for a completely different style. Instead, push the boat out – perhaps a designer label or luxury line. Familiarise yourself with the brands she buys.
At Home – Again check coast is clear. Look in wardrobe for recurring colour theme. Lots of light-coloured clothes? Go for white and ivory. Black is good under darker clothing. Pretty and fashionable brights are great alternatives. Red’s a popular choice, but be careful – it’s also the most returned!
Online – Access computer, navigate to Lingerie, and search for target either by type of lingerie, colour or by brand. Alternatively, visit a John Lewis shop and move directly to target destination; Lingerie department.
However you carry out your mission, remember to hold your nerve and use information gained from earlier preparation. Look for familiar brand names – you’ll encounter COLLECTION by John Lewis, L’Agent by Agent Provocateur, Fantasie and Somerset by Alice Temperley among others. There’s also a new lingerie gifts section online that’s full of stunning pieces to spoil the one you love.
So there we have the John Lewis Partner’s Guide To Buying Lingerie. I think this is a great guide to help out those men who might not have a clue where to start … and it saves you being bought the type of ‘lingerie’ that he might usually pick.
