Every man looks forward to the time when his relationship with his girlfriend shifts up a notch and the opportunity comes for him to buy lingerie for her. However the choices he makes can in fact make a huge difference as to the direction the relationship will go.

My first experience in buying lingerie for my wife was an absolute disaster and whilst she loved the gesture but she hated the product.

Gents, here is the reality check ...

Most women are not built as high fashion models and the reality is that you need to choose modest lingerie rather than totally saucy and salacious lingerie for the first time.

So how do you do that ...

1. Check out what underwear she wears now!

This is the secret to buying the right type of lingerie. For example, if your girlfriend doesn't wear a g-string or a thong then it stands to reason she won't want that style of lingerie from you either. Some women, especially those who have a large body shape do not like the g-string or thong, simply because it is either uncomfortable, their thighs rub together causing chaffing.

If your girlfriend is like this then the best style of lingerie for her would be something like a satin set of pyjamas or silk chemise that she can wear a normal pair of underwear.

Smaller shaped woman might have a preference of g-strings or a thong so it maybe more appropriate to go for a red ruffle bra and g-string set or a bustier with a g-string.

2. Choose the right colour

There are three acceptable colours for men to buy for their first set of lingerie, they are Red, Grey and purple. If you want to portray the perception of wanting something more in the relationship then red is the best colour to buy. Grey and Black lingerie should be purchased if you want her to feel sexy whilst going out and purple is often used to portray purity in the relationship. Most people who do buy purple lingerie will be lingerie that is chemises, gowns or full robes.

3. Buy the Right Size

Giving your girlfriend the wrong size lingerie, is the number one moment killer however it is easy to ensure this doesn't happen. Simply cheat!

The key way to work out her size, is to check the underwear she is wearing now. Sneak a quick peek at both her bra and panty size and then right them down. Make sure that when you start looking for the lingerie that you takethe those sizes with you.

This will help you ensure that what you are choosing is right.

4. Don't buy Peek-a-boo Lingerie (unless she asks for it)

When buying lingerie for your girlfriend for it is highly recommended that you do not choose any lingerie that may expose her crotch area. Whilst peek-a-boo lingerie is great for relationships that have matured, it is not the right style for first timers.

5. Don't get upset if she doesn't like

The last key piece of advice that is appriopriate is that don't get upset if your girlfriend doesn't like the lingerie. Many gents feel rejected if their girlfriends don't give positive feedback on opening the gift. Tough that's life!

If you want to make the relationship last, ask her why she didn't like it and what type of lingerie she would be willing to wear. Sit down together at the computer and check out the online lingerie stores together. This will give you the right information so that when you buy her lingerie in the future, she will want to model it for you immediately.
