Simple Lingerie Buying Tips

Most women like to wear nice lingerie, but a lot of us still find shopping for it a bit daunting. Well, I have been thinking about why that is and come up with a few tips and tricks you can use to make the buying process a whole lot easier.

Shop in the right places

A big part of the battle is shopping in the right places. There is nothing worse than visiting a lingerie shop only to find that they do not stock your size. It is very deflating ('scuse the pun!)

Fortunately, there are some very good retailers out there that cater for most sizes. is one of them. This firm sells great lingerie that is designed to fit women who are looking for bras in sizes 28 to 48 and in cup sizes B to K. Their knickers are available in sizes 12 to 32.

Look for mix and match deals

It is also worth looking for a retailer that offers you the chance to mix and match items. When you shop in this way you can buy exactly the right cut and size pants and bra. There is no need to compromise and find yourself wearing tango pants you hate just so you can wear a bra that is both comfortable and gorgeous.

Be sure you are buying the right size

Before you go shopping, always re-measure yourself. It is wise to do this even if you think you know your size. Often, you will be wrong.

Numerous studies and surveys have shown that the majority of women are wearing the wrong size bra. For example, recently a British newspaper measured 12 women and found that only one of them was wearing the right size one. You can read their report here.

Buy something you like

Often, when we go shopping for lingerie we do so because we want to look and feel great. Just make sure you buy something that you actually feel comfortable wearing, not just what looks great on the hanger. Uncomfortable underwear can damage your confidence, harm your posture, and make you feel very unattractive.  Beautiful, the right size and comfortable is the way to go!

Other practical considerations

When buying lingerie, you have to think about the practicalities, as well as how good you will look while wearing it. Before finally buying your items, check the care label. There is no harm in buying items that need to be hand washed. But, it is not really wise to do so if you are the type of person who is likely to forget and put it into the washing machine.

You also need to think about how your lingerie will look under your clothes. This is particularly important if you are buying something to wear with a special outfit. If you are doing this, always take the time to try everything on together. That way you can check that your bra does not show and your underwear does not cut in and create any unsightly bulges.
