Lingerie: Gift or Get it yourself.

Lingerie: Gift or Get it yourself.

AngelvMaynard AngelvMaynard
I've had this discussion with my friends before. Some of them love to get lingerie from their man and others say "No way, I'd rather pick it out myself so I know it fits." What do you guys prefer? Get it as a gift, or get it yourself?

Its a sweet thought, but I think we'd both be disappointed if it didn't fit. I also find it more fun for me to 'gift' it, as a surprise, than to receive it. Of course I would adore his effort, but it isn't rely on it for new lingerie. I love it too much for that.

Both! I love it when someone special come to the lingerie store to see me try things on... yummm

I'm saying both because I like to go with my guy to pick lingerie he will buy for me... so we're both involved...but ultimately I do leave the decision up to him.

I prefer to get it myself to know it will fit and something I'll like. But it is nice to receive on occasion.

I'll select my own. My man usually likes what I pick out.

I don't mind either way, but when he's bought me things, it can't be a surprise, because I need to look at it and tell him which size I'd be. (Especially things from Eden, I'll need to check the size charts to make sure it'll fit me.) But I really enjoy buying it as a gift for him, and then surprising him with it!

We are both involved in the selection process.

I would rather pick it out myself so that I know I am comfortable wearing it and that it fits correctly.

I prefer to get it myself, I am just super picky

I prefer to pick it out myself, but it's fun to go pick things out together sometimes or try things on and then if they know what fits, buy you one as a gift.

I prefer picking it out myself than having him involved in the process of selection. It makes wearing it even more of a turn on for my partner because it is new, he has never seen it before. So it makes things more exciting. But really, he is turned by anything I wear lol, I am so lucky

I think picking it out with a little help from him and HIS credit card is the way to go for me Thats a gift, right?

We do both. I love buying it as a surprise for her and she likes buying it as a surprise for me.

I'd prefer to pick my own, cause I think I'm a better judge on what is more likely to suit my body.

I prefer to pick it out myself, mostly because I'm always a different size. It is also fun to surprise him with it.

It would be a sweet surprise but I'd rather get it myself because then I know it's going to fit the right way.

Since a lot of lingerie is "one size fits most" anyway, and because my size is usually smack in the middle of medium, there's a reasonably good chance that most anything brought home would fit me.

I would definitely prefer getting lingerie as a gift---that way, I know it will be something that turns him on. In general I always hate picking out my own clothing anyway (thank goodness for basic clothes that don't try to make statements), but with lingerie I would be even more self-conscious.

Not self-conscious about my body; just self-conscious about my lack of fashion know-how.

I'm like Antipova and pretty much all of the "one size fits most" stuff will fit me, as well as most smalls and the occasional medium. But "small" is usually a safe bet with sizing here. So knowing that, my husband could easily go out and get me something and I'd wear it so long as it fit. That being said however, he usually prefers that I pick it out because he likes getting the surprise.

I usually get it myself but I would love it if my boyfriend would get stuff for me every once in a while.

It's not that a gift wouldn't be very thoughtful and sexy, but I would just rather pick out my own most of the time- with some input from my SO- because I know what I like and what looks flattering on me.

I usually buy it myself for fitting and sexy surprise reasons. However I do love it when my husband gets me lingerie. Shows he likes and appreciates what I do.

I did a show recently where I threw a White Elephant Erotic party for my friends. I chose one piece of lingere that was a "one size fits most" and wouldn't you know it, the girl that picked it was pregnant! We were cracking up. She decided to keep it because it was cup less and she said she could look sexy while she was nursing!

I think a lot of women feel exactly the same way.

I'd rather get my own. I will know it fits, and I will feel better in it because its something I obviously like/want.

Being pretty thin with very small breasts, I don't fit into a lot of lingerie properly and/or find it flattering for my shape. I would definitely want to buy my own to make sure I was picking something out that would work for me and probably try it on beforehand.

There is a store here in Atlanta called Intimacy, they specialize in lingerie for women with small breasts. Actually they specialize in small to large, the hard to fit on either end of the spectrum. They are all over the US, not sure about Canada, but check them out on line. Absolutely gorgeous stuff!
