A Man’s Guide to Lingerie Part II

There is something about lingerie that makes it capable of exciting both women and men alike. perhaps it?s the way lingerie accentuates the feminine curves of a woman?s body. Or perhaps it?s the playful look of a revealing undergarment. Regardless, lingerie makes an excellent gift choice that is outside of the normal gift choices men make, such as chocolate and flowers. With lingerie, a romantic encounter is sure to follow. But what types of lingerie are out there? What should I be looking for? These are some of the questions that men ask themselves when they are searching for that elusive gift.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Increasingly, men are realizing that lingerie is the gift that keeps on giving. Lingerie tells your girlfriend or spouse that you have a desire to be intimate with them and see them in something that makes them look their sexiest. This gives lingerie a powerful ability to set a romantic
encounter in motion. Women who look sexy also feel sexy, and the right lingerie can help make her feel her best. Needless to say, men also benefit from the way their significant other looks in romantic and sexy apparel.

In addition, crowded shopping malls and retail stores make the already daunting task of finding the right lingerie uncomfortable. Luckily, lingerie can now be found easily online. Online retailers also usually ship lingerie in discrete, plain boxes to help keep your lingerie shopping a secret.

But there are more factors that make lingerie a tricky choice for men who want to offer it as a surprise. Some confusing elements of lingerie are the wide variety of styles, materials, and confusing names.

Lingerie Types and Styles

Because of the universal appeal of sexy, quality lingerie in a relationship, men need to become more educated about lingerie and how to purchase such apparel. Listed below is a selection of the most common types of lingerie.

    The Pushup Bra
    One type of lingerie that we?ve probably all heard of is the pushup bra. The main attraction to this type of bra is its ability to add more cleavage, helping to enhance that feminine look.

    Baby Doll
    Another popular type of lingerie is a baby doll. A baby doll has a classic style that is perfect for those who want something sexy, but not too risqué® Baby dolls are often available in combination with thongs or g-strings to make a complete sexy outfit.

    Garter Belts
    Garter belts and garter skirts are a really popular choice for their really sexy look. Garters are available as a separate belt, or come attached to skirts or camisoles to make a sexy outfit even more stylish. When attached to a pair of stockings or thigh highs, the look is unmistakably sexy, while still maintaining a level of elegance.

    Panties
    Panties are the essential type of lingerie. Panties are available in your everyday cotton basic, or more risqué ´ypes. The most popular kind of panties among men are thongs since they provide a little more revealing look, while also providing a panty that is feminine, girlie, and even playful. A low-rise panty can also provide an excellent look as it hangs slightly lower off the hips than other types of panties.

    Camisole
    Men can?t go wrong with a camisole. A cami provides a more conservative, classic style, but is available in a wide array of cuts and materials to maximize sexiness. A camisole is also lightweight and comfortable, which makes it a great choice to ensure your partner is comfortable. It?s also a good choice when you?re afraid something else might be a little too
    sexy.

    Corsets
    Corsets have also gained in popularity. Despite their old world charm which can easily conjure up images of the Victorian era, modern corsets have changed significantly over the years. The materials have become softer and more comfortable and feature silk, lace, and satin to
    provide not only comfort, but also style. The corset has become trendy for its ability to accentuate a woman?s curves, giving a sexy and feminine look. A corset complimented by a pair of stockings provides the ultimate sexy ensemble.

    Bustier
    From the corset evolved the bustier. This garment is sort of a hybrid between a bra and a corset. It is similar to a bra, but also extends lower on the torso. Sometimes a bustier may reach to the navel, or perhaps all the way down to the waist. Bustiers often have boning to
    give it a more rigid look throughout the middle and lower portion of the bustier.

Picking the Right Style

Most lingerie is available in an array of colors and materials to provide you and your partner with the look that will truly heat things up. From cotton, to lace, to leather, there is a material that?s right for every preference.

But knowing the types of lingerie available is only part of what a man needs to know. After all, what?s the point of getting your companion a thong if she doesn?t even like thongs? The key to knowing what she would like requires a little bit of research.

First, look at other types of lingerie she owns. If she already has a corset, for example, chances are that she is comfortable with that style of garment and would be open to having a similar type of garment, but perhaps in a different color, material, etc. If your wife or girlfriend
does not have any other lingerie to compare, simply look at the rest of the clothes in her wardrobe. What colors does she like to wear? Does she like looser, lighter clothing, or perhaps tighter or sexier styles? Finding the answers to these questions will help you surprise her with
lingerie that you both will enjoy.

The Sizing Dilemma

Sizing may also be a difficult issue. Luckily, many lingerie items are available in One Size Fits All designations, making things a little easier. Generally, most lingerie will only require you to know Small, Medium, and Large, which is a simple way to determine size. Also, many garments are also available in Plus Size which helps anyone find the size that is just right.

Don?t shy away from getting something that looks fun and different. However, make sure you avoid garments that you love, but know she won?t like or be comfortable in. The beauty of lingerie is that it has the ability to stimulate both you and your significant other, so keep her
tastes in mind too.
