Bra! Didn’t mean to scare you but boys we know how that word makes you cower in your boots! Trying to buy someone special, something that she’ll love can be tricky but it’s time you rise to that challenge!
As women, we find it hard enough choosing the right size, brand, style, colour and shape for ourselves. So we do appreciate how hard it can be for you. These tips will help you pick exactly the right set and I think it’ll leave you pretty happy too.
Establish her true size
That’s right. Don’t just guess with your hands! Ask her friends what size she is or try and take a peak in her lingerie drawer when she isn’t around. Just don’t get caught – that definitely wouldn’t look so great!
Is she wearing the right size bra?
Not an easy one for anyone. You may have checked her size but do you know she is wearing the right size currently? Visit our fitting guide on the fitting section of our site to see the rights and wrongs of bra fitting. She’ll be even more pleased that you did that little extra. It’ll improve her comfort, the support and make her shape even more gorgeous too.
Establish her favourite colours
Don’t just buy something silky and red because that’s what you’d like to see her in. Try and consider her tastes. What does her other lingerie look like, what has she liked in the past? This might be the time to look in her drawer again.
Look out for colours, styles, what the cup shape is like and if she likes lace, bows and more.
How subtle can you be?
Generally not a man’s strongest point but if you can be subtle try and take interest when she’s shopping or looking through magazines. You may get a taste of her favourite styles and colours and that may be a good starting point.
Don’t forget those finishing touches
It really is the little things that make us happy. Brastop send out all our lingerie in pink tissue paper but why not finish off the present by buying a nice card and a nice gift box. Those small things make us so happy!
Don’t leave the prices on either but do leave the labels on just in case. Cut the price off then you’ll have no problems with an exchange or refund. She will also think you've spent a fortune and won't need to know about our bargain prices!
If you really are struggling?
Ok it may be cheating but we suppose it is the thought that counts! Why not let her choose and just pay?
If you do have any more questions or just want a little bit more advice we would be happy to help. Call our friendly team on 0208 861 1945 or email email@example.com. Boobs are our business so we can help you with any lingerie dilemma!
