How to Buy Lingerie for Your Lover: A Guide

It’s nice to give presents. But it’s even nicer when it’s something you can both enjoy. Realistically, however, buying lingerie can be a minefield of erotic fantasy – and disaster!

For something that’s only worn for a few scanty minutes before it’s tossed onto the floor (hopefully, with passion and not disgust) there’s a lot to consider. What size do you get? Which style will suit her best? Colour? Material? And if you thought teddies were just stuffed toys – You’ve got a lot to learn!

Fortunately, we’re here to help – Think of Bondara as your lingerie guardian angels. So, whether you’re buying sexy lingerie for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, a birthday or a weekend away, our handy guide explains how to get it right.


A question that strikes fear in the heart of partners across the world: what size is she? Forget back sizes and cup measurements – To keep it simple, our lingerie comes in sizes from small to extra-large (you can check out our plus size lingerie here). What’s more, a lot of pieces are one size only and are designed to fit most women, so you’ve got little chance of getting it wrong!

Even so, it’s always a good idea to check the size she usually wears. Sneak a look at her clothing label and compare it to our size guide. As sizing can vary from brand to brand, we’ve separated each one to make it even easier to work out.


Remember: while this is a present you’re probably more excited about than she is, it is still a gift for her. It’s ok to be a little selfish and buy something you really want to see her in, but bear in mind the types of lingerie she usually goes for. If she’s always avoided a particular shape, colour or material, it’s probably because she knows she doesn’t like it.

Now, let’s get down to business. Lingerie is more than just a bra set – there’s corsets, babydolls, bodystockings and more! Each one has its own cut and style that highlights different parts of the body and creates a particular ‘vibe’ for your evening.

Some are playful, others are sexier. Confused? Don’t be! We’ve broken it down for you…

Featuring a soft, flowing design, babydolls cinch in just below the bust and drape down the body, usually finishing at the upper thigh.

They tend to be made using sheer materials and have a flirty look without being overly sexual.

Chemises are similar in shape to a dress and hug the wearer’s figure. Some are tight to show off every curve, while others are slightly looser.

A popular choice, there are plenty of options when it comes to chemises, so you can find the perfect one!

Comfy AND sexy, teddies combine the best of both worlds.

These one-pieces range from daring and risqué to soft and sensual and often feature cut-out sides that show off your partner’s figure.

For a fierce look from head to toe, check out our bodystockings.

Figure-hugging and incredibly sexy, bodystockings are full-body pieces made from sheer or netted materials and perfect for women who are confident in their own skin.


The corset is a classic. Structured to show off the waist, corsets are hugely flattering and hug the wearer’s body without baring at all.

If you opt for a corset, don’t forget to check whether it includes knickers, a thong or a G-string – if it doesn’t, we’ve got a huge selection to choose from.

Finishing Touches

To complete the outfit, don’t forget some stockings or hold-ups. Stockings require a suspender belt, while hold ups stay up on their own.

Our final piece of advice? Unless you know for certain what she likes, play it safe. It’s far better to go for the simple-yet-sexy lace set than the crotchless, cupless number. Trust us – you’ll thank us later!
