With only seven or so more weeks until Christmas, lingerie might seem like a perfect answer to the big question ‘what shall I buy her’ for Christmas? but please take my advice and buy carefully and check her knicker drawer first.
A country wide survey has revealed that over half of the 24 million panty and bra purchased over the Christmas period are never worn, and according to the research, the worst offenders are men who buy red lacy underwear for their girlfriends or wives (or even both of them lol).
So boys, whilst those lacy sheer pair of crutchless knickers may drive your imagination wild, please remember your partner will be running around the shopping centre, driving home, then off to her evening fitness class afterwards. So, just like your boxers, she’ll also want comfort as well as them looking sexy for you, because remember, she’s got to wear those panties all day long.
Now, don’t get me wrong, us women don’t mean to sound ungrateful, we like, in fact love being bought underwear but we need to enjoy wearing them as well as looking good in them. Therefore, please make sure they’re sophisticated, wonderfully sexy, comfortable and very importantly, the right size!!!
Yes, the right size, we aren’t all the same as the manikin in M&S you know! The reason I say this is the study also revealed that 31% of all Christmas underwear is often too small but sometimes and… and if my man ever did this he’d die… even unforgivably, too big.
“So how do you find the perfect pair and avoid these panty nightmare Christmas gifts?” I hear you say?
It’s easy, firstly check the her knicker drawer, look at her sizes, where she usually buys them from, all usually visible on the label. Don’t get caught though, as not only could it spoil the surprise, she may suspect you are wearing her underwear or even sniffing them. Once you have the information, then shop for them online, don’t choose anything to ‘tarty’ or ‘slutty’ but on the other hand, not too conservative, oh and please do not buy her red!
Take my advice and make sure the panties and bra you gift to her are used by her and don’t end up being stuffed in the back of her knicker draw never to see the light of day.
