It’s Valentine’s Day, and you’ve what? You’ve forgotten? Unforgiveable! But you might be able to pull it back with a lovely little last minute lingerie gift.
But stop right there! Last minute lingerie doesn’t mean any old thing! Men are notoriously bad at buying undergarments, but, really guys, it’s not that difficult.
First thing you need to do is get our size right. So have a look in our undies drawer and see what size we wear. The last thing your last-minute lingerie needs to be is too big or too small. This will not go down well.
Next, colour. Red is really, really, really not the best bet. How much red lingerie have you seen us wearing? Maybe it’s your fantasy, maybe you think we’ll love it, but we probably won’t. Red and black cheap lace is not going to cut it!
Try pastels, florals, or plain sophisticated – and sexy – black. We all love black undies, okay?
Let’s talk knickers now. Briefs are great. Thongs aren’t so wonderful. Unless we normally wear them. Then they’re fine, obviously. Gorgeous all-in ones are something we’d probably never buy, so we’ll take them. Suspenders – well, only if they’re part of a beautiful, retro-cool set, okay?
Girlie patterns and little babydolls are cute, so we’ll take them. We want your last minute lingerie buys to be worn more than just once, okay? So go for something you like, but you know we’ll like to, and everyone’s a winner.
And if you are really struggling, you can’t go wrong with a simple black lace bra and knickers set, okay?! Now get to the shops!
Lace bra, £16.99 and briefs, £7.99, both Kelly Brook at New Look
