--Choose item styles that you KNOW flatter your figure?
--Play it by ear and go with whatever catches your eye?
--Like one type or a variety of types?
--Choose ones your partner prefers?
--Choose them based on what you like--who cares about what your partner thinks?
--Shop by brand?

Or other...Now, what do you do differently when shopping for a friend as a gift?

I definitely go for what flatters my figure! That is what is first and foremost for me, if I can find it in my size. For me that means a lot of boyshorts, hiphuggers and cheekies. I think I only own one thong. XD

After that I look at colors and patterns, both in what I like and what goes well with my coloring.

My partner generally just likes whatever looks good on me and doesn't seem to have a preference; except lace. He likes it, but I don't own a lot of it because it's so delicate.

Hmm..

I tend to go with whatever catches my eye. I used to go by only what I thought would flatter my figure, but then I tried on a piece that I thought would never work for me... It totally did work though! So now, I like to try whatever I think is pretty.

I choose items that I like, but I also choose ones that my partner likes. We have different ideas of what makes a piece of lingerie sexy; he prefers dirty and slutty, and I prefer sweet and pretty -- so it's hard to find a piece that meets both of our preferences.

For me it is usually Coquette and Baby Dolls because I love that company and the style of lingerie. My partner too loves baby dolls more then anything else.

I search & then search some more for what I like - just can't find very many, though - bummer.

A little of all. For a friend, I just avoid buying lingerie or clothing for friends. It's hard to tell what would fit them and what they would like.

My main thing is comfort, and support (when shopping bras). After that, then whether I think it flatters me, and whether or not I feel comfortable in mentally.

I like to go for styles that I know will flatter me, but I am willing to try new styles if I know my boyfriend would like it. Although, in all honesty, I could probably wear a paper towel and he would find it sexy.

If I am shopping for bedroom only lingerie, I am more willing to experiment with new things. However, for items I know I will be wearing under clothing, I have to ensure there is plenty of support. I have a decently large chest, so I need a supportive top. Otherwise, I'll be really uncomfortable, which will put me in a bad mood.

I usually go with flattering then it is appearance. However, as with all things--I do try new styles and either love 'em or hate 'em!!When shopping for friends--I choose styles that I know they would like.

I find most important to choose something I will find sexy on myself so usually it has to flatter I like to cover my stomach then I like try to find out if my husband will find it sexy. I like corsets and baby dolls.

I like things that really catch my attention, then I will check out the reviews. I also get things that will be easy to cam in as well. I also like to try different styles especially if I like the piece.
