Lingerie is the French term for undergarments (of both sexes), but has come to be associated with sexy or fashionable women’s undergarments. The actual French term is ‘linge’ but it got pronounced differently. The term stuck and now it is associated with designer undergarments.
In the 20th century women’s undergarments used to be very different. The prevailing mindset of that time meant that women wore undergarments to alter their figures or for modesty. The corsets that women wore were large and bulky. The corsets got less bulky with the invention of crinoline. Corsets were slowly supplanted by brassiere. They got more comfortable when World War One broke out and women started working in factoring and industries. Manufacturers recognized this need started manufacturing lighter and more practical undergarments. As time went by the undergarments started getting smaller and more form fitting.
When you come to think of it men know everything and nothing about lingerie. They find it very difficult to buy their partners lingerie. Most men end up walking into a store and buying either what their partner asked them to or what they would like to see their partner in. In reality men have know nothing when it comes to buying lingerie. The only time they go to buy it is if asked or it they plan on gifting it. It is said that you cannot go wrong when it comes to gifting lingerie. Women love the fact their partners are pampering them and the men like what results from the gifting. But men need to be careful while choosing lingerie. Here are some points that will help buy the right lingerie.
1. Do not let your imagination run free in the store and buy something you saw in a porno. You might like it, but your partner may not. You need to buy her something that suits her style and taste.
2. If you do not know what she like then it is time for you to go through her cupboard. While you’re at it recheck the size so that so do not go wrong. Women love shopping and if you can take a close girlfriend along. If you have no one to take along then ask the shop assistants to help you out.
3. When you are buying the lingerie itself, share your view with the assistant so that she can help you select something both you and your partner will like. When you go through her wardrobe see what she already has and get something along those lines if you are in a new relationship or newlywed. Go for something different if you wish to spice up the relationship.
4. If you want to add extra impact to the gift, make sure you pack it in a special way rather than just hand her the bag. Have the present wrapped and add don’t forget to add a nice card with it as well. If you have the time plan out a treasure hunt that leads to the location of the gift. This will make her excited and make her feel appreciated.
