Guys’ guide to buying lingerie this Christmas

According to relationship experts, what men want from a relationship is
attention and sex, while women want support and protection.

This is explicitly apparent when you examine what each of the sexes select
when gift shopping; women shop with a practical mind, aiming for
serviceable, functional clothes for their men, while men shop with a view to
undressing women and the anticipation of fun thereafter. So today we thought
we’d address both aims, while giving a bit of advice.

Guys, women do love lingerie. But it shouldn’t be the only gift; I’m just
warning you. Don’t think you will get massive kudos for picking out what
you’d like to see her strip down to. Have a back-up plan. If she is fussy,
ask the store about their refund/exchange policies, as most lingerie shops
do neither. If they agree to make an exception for you, get them to write it
on the receipt. Just to be sure, to be sure. Investigate her lingerie drawer
and see what size she wears. Make a note of the brands, if you can, as they
fit differently, and doing so helps the shop assistant when you seek help.
Secondly, check out what size clothes she wears — is she a size 12 on top
and 16 on bottom, or is she a ‘proper’ size 12? Knowing this helps hugely.

This season, lingerie is so beautiful, with distinctive trends, that it will
be hard for you to get it wrong. Fine lace in black is hot, as are the
colours burgundy, teal and bottle green, all of which look sensational on.
Ranges such as Mimi Holliday and Myla in Brown Thomas; La Perla and Cadolle
in Susan Hunter; and Miss Mandalay and Fauve in Cupcakes Lingerie, are pure
boudoir and gorgeous.

Ladies, men do like to look good. They just don’t feel comfortable discussing
it. Just as you feel better about yourself when you dress well, so, too,
will he feel more valued and respected if you buy him something attractive,
as well as functional. Do not do as one man described to me earlier this
week: “She gets home with a bag of cheap clothes and says, ‘There’s your
clothes for the year.’ The way to make a man feel manly and valued? I don’t
think so.”

Men are loyal and have labels they love, be they classic brands such as
Bugatti and Tommy Hilfiger, Irish brands such as Magee or Tricot Marine, or
funky labels such as shirts by True, or jeans by Counter Propaganda.

Shop local. Every town has a great men’s store with an understanding of local
men’s needs. What men desire is that bit of special attention, which shows
you really see them. Just as you want from him. In that way, the sexes are
