Lingerie isn’t just for Valentine’s Day. It’s a good Christmas gift too . . . but only if you do it right. There’s a lingerie expert named Jada Michaels, and she says there are three things you need to think about.
#1.) Don’t Go Too Sexy. Choose something she’ll wear again, like satin pajamas or a satin robe. Otherwise it’s ONLY a present for you.
–If that’s way too boring, go for something sexier. But add garters and matching pantyhose so it at least covers SOME skin.
#2.) Make Sure You Get the Right Size. Since you can’t ask her, here’s how to figure it out yourself: If you live together, check the size of a dress she wears all the time. If you don’t live together, check the size of her coat.
–Dress and coat sizes range from zero to 28: Zero to two is an extra-small in lingerie. Two to four is a small. Six to eight is a medium. Ten to 12 is a large. Fourteen to 16 is an extra-large. Eighteen to 22 is a 1X or 2X. And 24 to 26 is a 3X or 4X.
#3.) Don’t JUST Give Her Lingerie. The store should give you a gift box. Wrap that in NICE wrapping paper . . . not the same cartoony stuff you use for the kids.
–And also think about buying a few more things to go with it like bubble bath and candles. Just remember that giving lingerie should be romantic, especially for the holidays.
