A Guide for Men Buying Lingerie for Busty Ladies

This blog post should have a dotted line around it so that it can be cut out and stuck on the back of the loo door, left casually by the remote control or subtly tacked to the fridge with a big arrow saying “DO THIS!” This is our holiday buying guide for the gentlemen who are lucky enough to be in love with a beautiful busty lady and would like to buy her lingerie, but don’t know where to start.

Buying lingerie is your chance to show the woman you love how much you adore her, your relationship and her body. A busty woman needs to feel beautiful and supported in all her lingerie (we can't just throw on a frilly piece of lacy and feel sexy, it needs to have structure otherwise we get escaped boob!) There are some tricks to getting this gift right so that you get lots of festive kisses instead of cold turkey! You can visit our Men's Club for more information too.

Things to Avoid 
  • Buy for her not for you. If you buy a bra with barely there cups and a teeny tiny thong thinking that's what you'd like to see her in but your lady feels sexiest in full lace cups and a bikini then neither of you will get what you want! You need to buy what she feels good in and trust us you'll feel good in return!
  • If you have never bought her lingerie before don’t start out with anything too risqué (unless that is what she has asked for). Classically beautiful/sexy lingerie is a great place to start. Think lace or silky fabrics, romantic and sexy colours like pinks, reds and blacks.
  • Try to avoid buying the wrong size. This can’t always be helped but at least be in the right ballpark (don't buy from anywhere that doesn't have a returns policy, you need the freedom to exchange or return). Buying something much too big or small will send the wrong messages.
How to get it right
  • We don’t usually advocate rummaging through her lingerie drawer but this is the best place to find out her size (you can also sneak a look in the laundry basket or at the bras drying in the bathroom!) You’re looking for a little label inside the bra and it will have a number between 26 and 60 followed by a letter, for example, 36G. Also take time to check her underwear size.
  • Make a note of the styles of bras and knickers she wears. Does she have a lot of lace bras, silky bras, molded cups (these are the ones that keep their shape by themselves). What colours does she have? In her knicker drawer does she have thongs, or briefs, do they look a bit like shorts? Make a note.
  • When in doubt buy a gift certificate for lingerie. Make a point of writing something meaningful on the card and offer to choose the lingerie with her to make it a personal experience.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help
  • If you don’t feel comfortable rifling through her lingerie, ask a sister, Mom or female friend if they can help you. Girls share lots so chances are they’ll know something about her bras!
  • We are used to speaking to men about buying lingerie; we get calls from wonderful guys every week who are looking for lingerie gifts. You can call or email our support staff if you need help choosing a style or working out her size 1-888-225-0474 info@butterflycollection.ca
So this holiday season you can save your feet, avoid the line-ups and get her a gift that will get you lots of kisses and months of enjoyment all at the click of a button! xx
