Many people feel a little daunted by the prospect of buying lingerie for their partner. However, there are lots of superb products for consumers to choose from, including Freya bras and much more. As long as individuals follow some basic principles when they are on the lookout for underwear to hand over as a gift, they should not struggle to find the perfect items.
Offering help to hapless buyers, Men’s Fitness recently got experts to share some tips.
Boutique owner Alexis Isodora suggested it is a good idea for men to do some investigative work before they start attempting to buy anything. By taking a look in their partners’ drawers while they are in the shower or out of the room, they can get the right sizes.
Because some brands size underwear differently, it is important to check at least three bras and knickers, she noted, adding that writing down the sizes is also a good idea.
If there is no opportunity to check the sizes, it helps to stick with items that come in small, medium, large or one size fits all.
Meanwhile, men should not be afraid to ask for help. According to Ms Isodora, sales personnel love to educate men and show them things that they think will be ideal for them and their partner.
If consumers are on the lookout for something really special, they should forget cotton lingerie and go instead for lace, satin or silk, the specialist advised. However, men should be careful to make sure they appeal to their partner’s individual tastes. For example, if the recipient is a laid back t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, she may not want a frilly, intricate bustier complete with complicated lace-ups or buttons. Instead, something sweet and simple may be better.
Men who are put off by the high street shopping experience can always peruse the selection of Freya underwear and other products available online.
