How To Buy Lingerie As A Gift For Valentine’s Day

Whether it’s your first ever Valentine’s Day together or one of many, it can be difficult to know what gift to buy the one you love. Lingerie is an absolute classic gift option for days linked with romance, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Potters of Buxton have put together a lingerie buying guide to help you with buying a special set of lingerie for your partner. A Valentine’s Day gift she’ll love to receive, putting some thought into your choice of lingerie for your significant other will certainly put you in her good books!

How do you buy lingerie?

Here at Potters of Buxton, we stock many great ladies underwear and lingerie brands that have created exceptional designs which are bound to appeal to a whole host of individual tastes. It’s important to have an understanding of her personal style and preferences when it comes to underwear, or you’ll soon notice that your special gifts have been relegated to the back of her underwear drawer!

So, what do you need to consider before buying lingerie as a gift? Here are a few basic pointers that might help you in deciding which bra and pant set to invest in:

  • Her style: If the lady in your life is all about floral lace soft cup bras, and you get her a plain white cotton t-shirt bra, you may encounter a problem. Consider materials and types of bra she prefers; balconette bra, thongs and silk, or push up bra, briefs and lace? She’ll enjoy the fact that you’ve taken notice of her usual underwear style and deem your gift as thoughtful if you match the new lingerie pieces to her personal tastes.


  • Her size: No matter how long you’ve been together, it’s often true that you’ve simply never noticed what size bra she wears! Don’t worry though because this can be remedied by doing some research – her underwear drawer. Sizing is obviously an important element when looking for a beautiful bra and knicker set, so take a look at the labels on her existing garments and take note of the bra cup size and underwear size.


From sexy to practical, there’s a whole world of ladies lingerie you’re about to uncover in order to find the perfect lingerie for a Valentine’s Day gift!
