Men buying lingerie for the special woman in their lives can be not only stressful, but intimidating also. Wondering around aimlessly in a lingerie store seems like a pretty risky task and is something that doesn’t sound too desirable for most men.
Enter, Brastop! Where men can shop from the comfort of their own home, embarrassment-free!
"Easier said than done," I hear you say, however with this fool-proof buying guide, you can rise to the challenge and pick out a knockout piece for the woman in your life.
Establish her size
Believe it or not, but you can’t buy a bra based on guessing with your hands. ‘She’s a good handful,’ four famous words we hear men say all the time when asked the size of their loved ones breasts.
Bras actually come in sizes and they are even trickier than choosing our dress size! Do some quick research; ask her friends, if they don’t know, take a quick peak in her lingerie drawer. Just don’t get caught… awkward!
Although you have found out her size, is it definitely correct? If she hasn’t been bra fitted in a while, it might be time for you to take things into your own hands (no, not literally). Visit our fitting guide for all the tips and tricks on how to get the perfect fit. Going the extra mile will not only impress the socks off of her, but it will improve her comfort and make her shape even more gorgeous.
What are her favourite colours?
Buying something black, for someone who’s favourite colour is baby pink, just because you find is sexy, could be a huge mistake.
Take note, what colours are her other lingerie sets? What is her taste? If she is very girly, then pastels, pinks and lighter colours might be the way to go. If not, then black, navy, red and sultrier colours might be her preference.
It might be time for you to take another peak in her lingerie drawer, again, just don’t get caught!
It’s all in the details!
Women love details, men? Not so much. Look out for styles, does she prefer a moulded cup or non moulded cup? Does she like lace, bows or frills? All of these things make up the perfect lingerie set and getting the details right, will be sure to earn some extra brownie points.
To finish off?
Think of any extras that may make the gift that much more special. Does she like to wear suspender belts? If so, then you may want to pick up a new pair of stockings for her.
Now for the wrapping of the gift, I know you guys aren’t great at wrapping during the best of times, let alone when attempting to wrap a corset and some knickers. So leave the hard part to us and opt for our gorgeous gift wrapping service at the checkout. We can guarantee your partner’s eyes will light up as soon as she is presented with a beautiful gift box full of goodies! You have just earned yourself 10 extra brownie points without the hassle of having to YouTube "how to tie a ribbon."
If you are really struggling...
It may sound like you’re cheating but if you really can’t figure out the right size or are worried she won’t like what you have chosen then why not take the easy road and buy her a gift card? It won’t earn you quite as many praises but it is still a very thoughtful gift!
