3 quick tips for gifting lingerie

Buying lingerie as a gift can be tricky, but these tips will help you to get it right the first time around.

1. Do the research

Size is the most important thing, especially for bras. If the gift is a surprise for someone close to you, check for the right size by taking a quick peek at the label on her current bras or slip the topic casually into a conversation.

If the gift won’t be a surprise, ask her size and measurements upfront.

2. Colour matters

Choose colours that work well with most of her clothes. You can never go wrong with a lingerie set in classic black or white. For a pop of colour, introduce darker colours like burgundy, mocha and forest green.

3. Keep it simple

Lingerie comes in styles and fabrics to suit a wide range of tastes. For gifts, keep it simple and choose a comfortable style like our lace-trim boyleg panties. A classic balconette bra is versatile, gives an extra lift and suits both petite and fuller shapes.

Gifting tip: as a special touch, wrap lingerie in tissue paper prior to wrapping it with gift wrap or putting it in a gift bag or box.
