Take It From a Woman: How to Buy Lingerie She’ll Actually Wear

Thistle and Spire Cornelia Babydoll

This top-rated babydoll from the size-inclusive lingerie brand features stunning embroidery and a flowy mesh tulle, for a comfortable, yet proactive, style. Add the Cornelia Thong for a completed look.

Fleur du Mal Feather Embellished Angel Sleeve Robe

Any one of Fleur du Mal’s lavish lingerie sets will satisfy, but if you want to add a luxe layer to her nightwear drawer let it be the brand’s best-selling silk robe, which features wide sleeves and a fabulous pink ostrich feather trim.

Honey Birdette Goldy Emerald 3 Piece Set

For the woman who likes her glamour, no other lingerie set compares to this shimmering emerald green number that stars crystal tulle, Swiss-designed embroidery and detachable gold chains.

Bluebella Elizabeth Soft Bodysuit

Clean lines and mesh panels make this bodysuit a powerful piece of outerwear or undergarment, designed to accentuate her waist and compliment her natural silhouette.

CUUP Plunge Bra and Thong

No need to sacrifice sexiness for comfort with the Plunge, a semi-transparent bra with mesh cups with opaque seams, and the super soft, super stretchy mid-rise Thong.

Cosabella Never Say Never Tie Me Up Brazilian Thong

Slightly impractical? Sure. But the adjustable ties are fun — and for the right occasion (i.e. Valentine’s Day), an incredibly sexy detail.

Remember: It’s for her, not you.

While lingerie is a gift you both can unquestionably enjoy, this is not an opportunity for you to play dress-up. Don’t buy her something that’s meant to fulfill all of your fantasies.  While we love unwrapping a romantic piece of lingerie you’ve picked out specifically for us and our bodies, we don’t appreciate someone else’s fantasy being thrust upon us under the guise of a selfless gesture and thoughtful gift.

Our goal here is simple:  to help you live a more adventurous,  eventful and engaging life.
