Buying Christmas lingerie
Tis the season for another pair of Christmas socks, woolly jumpers, shower gel gift sets and if you’re lucky-a Terry’s chocolate orange.
Love it or hate it, Christmas is that time of year where family come together for quality time, festive events, Christmas parties and gift-giving. The sparkliest dresses are pulled out from the back of the wardrobe and Christmas underwear is found hiding in lingerie drawers!
Why choose Christmas lingerie?Christmas lingerie is one of the popular choices for gift-giving as well as purchasing for your partner to wear under your favourite Christmas outfits or glittery tops! It may seem a little daunting at first as there is a huge array of lingerie available such as; all-over red lace sets, high waist shapewear briefs, low-back bodysuits, backless bras and even ‘Santa’ themed sets or sexy Christmas costumes for those special nights in with your partner. Whilst the party season is well underway, it is a perfect time to refresh her lingerie drawer with a few ‘naughty’ …or ‘nice’ sets.
How to choose the perfect Christmas lingerie for your partner
So, you’ve decided on lingerie – good choice. We understand how scary it can be to try to find the perfect set for your partner, especially when you know nothing about bra styles, sizes, shapes, colours…the list goes on.
It feels like a bit of mind field, I mean, what if you buy the wrong size? What was a lovely gesture turns into a complete meltdown with tears and shouting “I can’t believe you think I am that size!!”. Well, we are here to hold your hand through the entire process, to help you choose the perfect lingerie which your partner will fall in love with and with you all over again!
- The first thing you need to know is your partner’s size. It’s time to go rummaging through her lingerie drawer! Come on fellas, take a deep breath and get in there! The tags on her bras will have a size on it made up of a chest size (which is a number between 28 and 54) and a cup size (a letter or two letters between A and K) ie 32DD or 46K.
- Take note of the style of bra she likes to wear. Is it padded, or is it lace, does it have wiring in it or is it completely smooth?
- Now the knickers, they will either have a number from 4 to 28 or a letter 2XS – 7XL. Whilst you are fondling her knickers, take a look at the style. Are they thongs? Do they look more like shorts? Or are they more of a classic look. Trust us, it is important to pay attention to what she likes to wear. If you buy her a thong when all she wears are high rise panties, she is not going to enjoying wearing them and therefore after the compulsory first wear, they will go to the back of the drawer, never to be worn again!
- Right, you are now ready to decide on what type of lingerie you want to purchase for your intended. Are you wanting to buy her a bra and knickers set; or perhaps you’d like to get her a sexy chemise (that’s a nightie) or babydoll? Take a look at our suggestions below for the best Christmas lingerie styles, nightwear and stocking fillers to give you some great ideas for the perfect gift.
Christmas lingerie gifts
Although sexy Christmas outfits can be great as Christmas gifts for your partner, considering lingerie that can be worn after the festive period is also great to think about.
A few timeless lingerie gifts could include silky pyjamas, lacey lingerie sets and a lace body which could be worn underneath everyday clothing. A balance of the Christmas and timeless lingerie is sure to be greatly received by your partner! A brilliant example would be the PrimaDonna Ray of Light balcony bra and thong, which features sexy sheer fabric in a gorgeous red hue with delicate floral embroidery detailing. A charming set which will add a touch of luxury to any lingerie collection during the festive season and throughout the year.
Sexy Santa lingerie
Sexy Santa, dressing up costumes and general sexy Christmas lingerie is sure to be plastered in many of the online and high-street lingerie stores throughout the festive period.
Sexy Santa outfits are sure to include the traditional red satin with white fur detailing; however, many other sexy lingerie options often feature red, black or white lace with plunge styling. Satin knickers, suspender belts, stockings and sheer bodies often look and feel very luxurious, without the high price point and make perfect gifts for partners! A great example of a luxurious lingerie body would be the Bluebella Emerson strappy body, which features delicate lace on the thong and open cups, with playful bondage-inspired elastics- making this a real show-stopping body.
During those cold chilly nights, there is nothing better than snuggling up together in front of a roaring fire, in soft Christmas nightwear like pyjamas and a warm dressing gown while sipping hot chocolate.
The ultimate cosy choice is the plaid DKNY Too Good to Give a Fleece pyjama set. In super soft fleece and traditional plaid design, your partner will be feeling all warm and cosy on the inside as well as the outside. For something a little more glam, your intended will feel completely spoilt and pampered in the Bluebella Claudia PJ set made from silky soft satin in a timelessly elegant style.
