It's often said that giving is its own reward, and that is never more true than when you give your lady some sexy lingerie! Thankfully the days of husbands and boyfriends awkwardly browsing the aisles of department stores, whilst desperately trying to avoid eye contact, is no longer the problem that once it was. But, the underlying uncertainty of what would make an appropriate gift is still at the forefront of male shoppers minds... I hope.
What I'm going to suggest is that if you're feeling a little hesitant, if you are full of doubt as to whether a crotchless PVC thong is really what your other-half lusts after, if you think the bewildering selection of bra styles and measurements sound like a minefield, you might like to consider a safe (but still very sexy) alternative.
My opinion is that you honestly can't go wrong if you make your selection from the Lovehoney range of Babydolls and Chemises. They range from figure hugging, to loose and flowing. From revealingly skimpy, to really quite modest. Just please try to remember that it's supposed to be a gift for her, not just for you!
Provided you take a little care, there are styles to suit all body types and still look really complimentary - subtly concealing any imperfections, so that your other half will be looking great in your sexy gift to her, and also feeling fabulous. Also remember that whilst some of these items do come with a free g-string, the quality is not that great and pairing them up with some nicer sexy knickers will really pay off.
To get you started, here are some of our personal favourite picks from the currently available styles:

In closing, let me leave you with a couple of thoughts. Go for a mix of textures - satin combined with lace detailing, or sheer mesh combined with fabric. Men will love the feel of your curves through lightly draped satin, or so I am reliably informed by the hubby! And finally, give some thought to how easy it is to take it off, being a little wary of anything that looks too fussy and complicated.
We've been looking at the Lovehoney range of Babydolls and Chemises, but before you go down the wonderful rabbit hole of lingerie browsing, remember to think about some accessories. Maybe a pair of stockings? Or if the item you're choosing comes with a really basic "free" g-string, consider upgrading to a nicer pair of naughty knickers; just do your best to try and keep the style and colour consistent.
