Buying lingerie as a gift makes a beautiful present and sends out a message that you have carefully chosen a gift she will love. After all, what women want is to know you have put thought into your gift for her.

If you have not bought her lingerie before it can seem a little terrifying. Our goal at Caroline Randell is to help you as much as possible, making it a pleasure and removing any fear that you might have.

Buying lingerie is not rocket science and it will send your stock value soaring with her. We have helped hundreds of men buy the perfect gift and we have some great tips to help you out.

Finding Out Her size

First of all, you need to find out her size. The two main rules for bras sizing are:

Back Size: The back size is the measurement around her body under her bust i.e 30, 32, 34, 36, 38 etc

Cup Size: The cup size is the actual breast size, i.e Cup A, B, C, D, E, F, G etc.

The best way to find out what size she wears is to sneak a peek in her lingerie drawer at the label in her bras. You may find that she has different sized bras. Either try to find the size of the bra that you know she wears the most or go with the majority size. Have a little glance at bras in her drawer, is there a certain style bra she wears - are her bras all padded or are they non-padded? This can help you in deciding what style of bra to go for.

While you are there, look at the size and the style of the briefs that she wears. Does she wear mostly thongs, briefs or French knickers? This way, you can choose the styles that you know she prefers.

If you are still not sure of her size we have a stunning selection of silk nightwear and babydoll sets which come in less precise sizes – X-Small (UK 8), Small (UK 10), Medium (UK 12), Large (UK 14), X Large (UK 16)
