Mens Buying Guide to Lingerie

3 Simple Steps To Find The Perfect Gift That She'll Love

At Boux Avenue we know that finding the perfect lingerie can be tricky, and if you’re buying a gift for the lady in your life then it can be doubly difficult. To escape the sartorial minefield of sizes and styles, we’ve enlisted our resident lingerie expert, Miss B, to help you find that extra special present.

Step 1: Size

Finding the correct size is the most important aspect here. It’s also the hardest of all to guess – so don’t! Take a peek in her lingerie drawer and check the tags on her favourite items. Be sure to look at a few different styles, as a girl’s size may vary – if this is the case, go with the most popular or recent. Bra sizing consists of a number and a letter (or two); while knickers are simply a number (just the same as a dress size). Boux Avenue’s lingerie ranges from sizes 30A to 40H and 6 to 20.

The next step is colour; Boux Avenue is always on trend with the latest colours and prints, but try to remember that your colour choice should depend on two things. Firstly, her favourite colours – she’ll love lingerie in her favourite shade. Try matching your gift to the colour of her favourite dress or item of clothing to complete the outfit. Secondly the type of gift you want to give – say ‘seduction’ with bold shades of red, black and purple in luxurious satin and lace fabrics or indulge her sweeter side with romantic colours like cream, grey and pink with feminine florals and flirty little frills.

Step 2: Colour
Step 3: Style

Is she girly, romantic or feminine? Does she like to vamp things up with full voltage glamour? Or is she understated and classically cool? We’ve created three handy collections filled with fabulous gift-buying inspiration…

Dont forget the finishing touches

Sexy suspenders, garters or satin eye masks will add the perfect finishing touches to a super-seductive gift, while cosy slippers and cute hot water bottles are the ultimate accessories for any pyjama set. Gorgeous evening clutch bags, beautiful mirrors and vanity boxes will make any gift complete. You can also choose from a range of bath and body treats or gifts for the home.

All wrapped up...

Once you’ve chosen the perfect present, we’ll take it from there… We offer a fabulous free gift wrapping service to ensure your gift arrives beautifully wrapped and packaged.

The low risk solution...

And if you simply can’t decide, then save yourself the drama by giving her a gift card. That way, she’ll be able to choose exactly what she wants!
