Gentlemans Guide

Buying Designer lingerie for your loved one is intimate and personal and of course, very, very romantic.  If you get it right it will show her how much you know and love her and most importantly how much you understand her needs and desires.

But do you struggle with the thought of buying underwear?  Let's face it; the odds of you buying the right style in the right size and colour without her knowing are stacked against you quite a bit.  Well here at Honeys Lingerie Boutique our team of experts have put together a guide to help you.  All you have to do is sit back, take note and follow our simple instructions to become a true connoisseur in lingerie shopping!
Oscar Wilde said "I can resist anything but temptation!"  The most important rule!  DO NOT be tempted to buy an item of underwear that YOU think is sexy.  It's pretty safe to say that her idea of fabrics and styles that make her feel sexy and special, are not the same as yours.
So, take a peak!  Have a browse through her lingerie drawer, take note of her style and colour preferences.  If you think she'd look good in a lacy thong, but there's no evidence of them in there, then it's safe to say she won't wear it!  If all she has in her drawer are thongs and a plunge bra, then that is what she feels at her best in.  Take note of the material too.  She may feel sexy in silk or lace so a leather basque with laces may not appeal!

Whilst you are there, check out her bra size (for example 32d) and brief size.  If there are more than one size (which is inevitable as some brands can differ), go with the majority.

Now you have established her size and colour, you need to get her style right.  To help you choose a piece of underwear from our fantastic range, here are a few guidelines on our designers.  Mix them with your partner's own personality and you are onto a winner.
