01 Mar A guide to lingerie gifting
Get it wrong and you’ve got a recipe for a delicates disaster!
Whether you’re shopping for an anniversary gift for your sweetheart, a birthday present for your best friend, or a luxurious wedding gift for a bride-to-be, we know how daunting the task can be! Lingerie shopping isn’t always easy, but I’m here to help.
My tips below will help guide you to finding the perfect gift from my lingerie collection. If you have any further questions at all, just contact me for assistance and I’ll respond with personalized recommendations within 24 hours, all from the comfort of your sofa.
Choosing the perfect size
One of the most frequent question I get from gift-givers is “What size do I buy?!” No one wants to select the wrong size, and guessing can be quite difficult if you aren’t familiar with how lingerie sizing works. The simplest option is to peek into your lucky gift recipient’s wardrobe and peek at the tags on their favorite pieces – make sure to check several brands in case there are a range of sizes.
Unsure on sizing?
If you still aren’t too sure on sizing, or if you aren’t able to check their existing garments, we recommend buying garments that are looser or size-adjustable. A robe with a wrap-around tie allows for a variety of body shapes and sizes to fit comfortably. If you’d prefer to let your recipient pick out their favorite styles (and perfect size) themselves, a gift certificate gives them the option for whatever their heart desires, with the added bonus of avoiding any potential sizing mistakes.
Gifting a bra or bralette
We size our garments in a way that makes for easy gifting, which is why we don’t use traditional bra sizes like 32B or 34C. Our bralettes will best fit cup sizes B, C and D boobs. The bralettes are a soft cup with no underwire and are triangle-style. I’ve also designed them to include adjustable clips over the shoulders as well as the back. This allows for a lot of flexibility with gifting, especially compared to traditional underwired bras.
Choosing the perfect style
Once you’ve determined which size to buy, the next choice to make is which style of garment they’ll like best.
If this is a surprise gift, it’s safest to buy something that will fit into their current wardrobe and tastes. Do they prefer more classic styles, like delicate lace lingerie sets?
You’ll also want to consider anything the recipient might have mentioned to you previously: Are there certain items which items make them feel fabulous, or others that don’t? Do they never wear skimpy thongs and prefer a little more coverage with briefs? Do garter belts feel “too sexy,” but a pretty bra and panty set under a date night dress would make them radiate with confidence?
If you’re buying a gift for a sweetheart, you can always shop together for something more adventurous later on, but the best way to ensure a lingerie gift will be well-received is to consider it from the perspective of the recipient, and the items that make them feel like their best self.
If this is their first introduction to luxury lingerie, a gift set of lack knickers is a great initial buy that can easily be expanded upon later. Boxed gift sets are easy for sizing and aren’t quite as “lingerie” feeling as a full matched set with a garter belt, for example.
Alternatively, if you know that whoever you’re shopping for is already an aficionado of fine lingerie, how about indulging in something to take their collection to the next level? A lace and sheer bodysuit makes for a beautiful addition to their collection.
Choosing the perfect color
If you aren’t able to peek at your giftee’s lingerie drawer to find out more about their favorite colors, or if you’re in doubt about the best color, black and ivory are always safe choices. On the other hand, if you happen to know that they love red or tend towards bright colors, go for it!
Custom and bespoke gifting
If you’re in search of something next-level special, we also offer custom and bespoke giftbox options. We can create a gift certificate for your chosen budget, and then work with your recipient to choose from our collection of lingerie, intimate accessories and more. A custom gift certificate is a wonderful and immediate way to offer a last-minute present, and it extends the gift experience beyond the occasion itself. Our gift certificates are sent via email as PDF files within 24 hours (usually less!), so you’ll be able to share it with the recipient right away.
