Buying lingerie as a surprise? I have put together a little guide to help you choose the perfect gift! The best place to start is to take a peek in her lingerie drawers and see what she already owns and loves. Once you have a good idea of what she loves to wear consider the following three things...
Perfect lingerie starts with a perfect fit. Check the labels on her knickers to find her UK size, or take a look at the size guide. To get the best fit I suggest you avoid structured garments like underwired bras unless you are sure of her Arabel size. The best option is to choose from the lovely selection of soft lingerie, (lingerie without boning and wires) as these are more easy to size. Camisoles make lovely gifts and can be worn as tops as well as lingerie, making them two gifts in one. Knickers are one of the most popular gift items and you can choose high waist briefs, classic panties or cheeky thongs. Stockings are also lovely gift items as they come in a variety of colours and make great stocking fillers.
Next you need to think about which colours she loves to wear. Does she prefer bold colours, pretty pastels or seductive black lingerie? The Shop By Colour feature is a great place to start if you have a particular colour in mind. Three of the most popular gift colours are pink, blue and black - just click on a pictures below to view lingerie in that colour. Also, if you fall in love with a style but would like it in another colour then I may be able to create a bespoke design for you. Please contact me if this is something you are interested in.
Now think about the lingerie she already owns... which pieces make her feel beautiful and confident? Some women love sheer mesh, others adore lace. Some love high waist knickers and others are crazy about thongs. A good place to start is to think about what kind of woman she is... Is she provocative and seductive, does she love to dress up and feel irresistible? Is she glamorous, does she love to wear the finest fabrics and most elaborate fashions? Is she romantic, does she love soft fabrics and beautiful design? Just click the pictures below for inspiration...
Still not sure?
If you need any help choosing the perfect gift please get in touch, I would love to help you. If you are not sure what she would like then give her the gift of choice and treat her to an Arabel gift certificate. Then you can enjoy the surprise of seeing what she orders, or you could even have fun choosing something together! Gift certificates are also a great option if you need a gift in a hurry.
