TIPS FOR MEN

Sizing It Up

A good way to determine cup size is the fruit method. If her breasts fall in one of these size categories, then usually the cup size next to it will be the right one.

HALF LEMON – A cup

HALF ORANGE – B cup

HALF GRAPEFRUIT – C cup

HALF MELON – D cup

Don’t like fruit?? How about sports?

HALF GOLF BALL – A cup

HALF TENNIS BALL – B cup

HALF BASEBALL – C cup

HALF SOFTBALL – D cup

How To Purchase Lingerie For Her

To become a master in giving her touching and amazing gifts, consider our golden tips:

1) Size

Before selecting any lingerie it is very wise to know what size she wears. Presenting her with lingerie in the wrong size might not prompt the reaction that you intend.

Try not to guess her size. If you have no idea what size she wears you can always ask her, or peek through her lingerie wardrobe for sizes she currently wears. To keep it a secret you should look for the right size on her favorite bra. You are looking for a number and a letter to indicate the size, for example, 36C.

The number refers to the contour under the bust and the letter refers to the depth of the cup.

2) Style

Size is not enough. The style is just as important. To pick the right bra, you should take a good look at what she’s wearing most.

Tight fitted clothing? Deep necklines? Or does she prefer loose clothing? Perhaps she’d like something a little more flirty than what she usually wears. We can work on taking it up a notch, but knowing her preference will help us help you make a good choice.

3) Color

Rule of thumb: If you take a close look at her wardrobe, you will spot her favorite colors. Think about which ones look good on her to you.

Does she wear a lot of black? If so, that’s a classic choice for lingerie. Think about what compliments her skin tone and eyes.

4) Ask for Help!

Don’t be shy. Ask for help. That’s what we’re here for! She is going to be so delighted that you made the effort and thrilled with her gift.

We will provide you with a gift receipt in a beautifully hand-wrapped box, so she can always exchange a size if need be.

5) The Gift Card

If you are still not sure about what gift to choose, then get the gift that always fits: a gift card. Your lingerie consultant will wrap it and turn it into a lovely gift, with a signature box and ribbon.
