Whether it’s lace, satin, cotton, or silk, lingerie is always in season. And what better excuse to purchase some flirty finds than to celebrate sexiness in true holiday spirit! It doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice this year because lingerie is always well-deserved as a gift to give or receive, and we wouldn’t judge if you just so happened to send it to yourself with a bow on top.
Some men fail to see the true power of lingerie and would argue, “It’s a waste of time, it’s just going to come off anyway!” We respectfully DISAGREE. A friend of mine made a great point the other day when we were talking about this topic over some drinks:
“Would you rather come down Christmas morning and see a box under the tree that just says ‘Amazon’ or would you rather look under the tree and see a gift box with festive wrapping paper and a bow on top?”
And there it was, the A-HA moment in a man’s face: “It all makes sense now; I never looked at it that way.” Well, of course you haven’t! Stop with the instant gratification and start thinking of all the ways you can spice up those special moments with your loved one.
Those men aren’t alone in their opposition to lingerie. Some women are extremely intimidated by the thought of it alone.
“I could never pull it off.”
“ME? IN THAT THING?!”
“I could NEVER be sexy enough for that!”
Come on ladies, stop with the self-loathing and start with the self-loving. The female body is a beautiful piece of work and men practically drool over it already. We might as well give them a little something extra.
Now, lingerie can indeed be a tricky realm to enter with all the options that you’re given.
But keep in mind that there is intimate wear for all shapes and sizes, and of course all types of moods. Which brings us to our next point: yes, there will be dozens of questions running through your mind but picking out lingerie is not rocket science. Here, we will guide you on picking out the perfect fit for the perfect night.
First, you should eliminate what you think your lover will like and start focusing on what you feel the best in. This may sound a little counterintuitive, considering you are doing this to surprise your significant other, but trust me on this. The most important factor to take into consideration is YOU. If you feel sexy, you will radiate sexiness and boy oh boy, will your lover see that. You want to be confident in what you’re wearing and don’t want to be worried about “Oh, I hope this shapes me nicely,” or “I really hope this covers that problem area.” That’s why we encourage you to get out there and have some fun in…
