How to buy her lingerie!
Asked on Quora:
Why do men buy women lingerie?
Answer by Tamra:
From a marketing standpoint, I can tell you that men are bombarded with lingerie advertisements and men associate lingerie with sex.
Men buy lingerie in hope it will transfer into a return of sex.
This is not always a bad thing, but can be seen as pushy or inappropriate in certain circumstances.
Gentlemen, please...Put Down That Bra!
Read these ten tips before you present her with the gift she won't let you forget.
For any gift I would recommend a man ask himself the following:
How long have I known the person I am buying for?
Is this gift appropriate for how well I know this person?
What are my expectations in giving this gift?
Is this gift in the bounds of her values or would it offend?
Is this gift really for her or something I want?
Does this gift stand alone or could gifts of a non-sexual nature better meet her needs/preferences/tastes.
Will this gift send the message I want it to send?
Is this gift too cheap or too expensive?
Is the sizing right? Too small or too large could be a sensitive issue.
Have you asked her if it is okay for you to buy her intimate wear?
Ask enough questions and pay attention to the important person in your life to know her actual sizes/desires/expectations.
It may be easier and more enjoyable for a couple to lingerie shop together, so both people know what he/she likes best.
You can always surprise her later with something she loved!
