Women and the men that buy sexy lingerie for women purchase intimate apparel for reasons that differ from buying outerwear, and you may need to make a number of purchases before you become completely confident in purchasing sexy lingerie.
Do nott be afraid of wearing plus size lingerie, and remember that sexy lingerie often fits snugly and at times is sinfully short. You may not wear a large anywhere else, but many on-line lingerie sites suggests that you purchase a large or even an extra large or one-X. They do that, because sizing drifts some in lingerie are dependent on such factors as how you want the lingerie item to fit. For instance, Let us say that you wear a size 34D bra. When sizing a corset you choose the first variable in your bra size and completely ignore the cup size, so you would wear a size 34 corset, right? Maybe not. Lets say you had your breasts enhanced and your frame fit your breasts before the enhancement, so your waist and tummy are really that of a woman with 32B breasts, which was your bra size.
A size 32 may be suggested, because the corset would likely fit your newly enhanced breasts, but the remainder of the corset that extends down to you waist would fit loosely, and perhaps not to your liking. See what we mean that sizing of intimate apparel needs to take into account your body type and other related variables. It is often suggested that women consider a plus size garment, even though they are not otherwise plus size. Tall women, long waisted women, women who have had breast enhancements, and other reasons are often good reasons to purchase plus size lingerie. On the other hand we also often suggest going down in size depending on how the woman wants to look and feel. When we know the purpose for which the garment will be used, dancers, theater production, costume party, wanting to exaggerate bust and cleavage, they will tailor their sizing and style suggestions.
Often times, these websites will get requests for alterations, and unfortunately due to their volume they cannot offer those services. You do not really need a seamstress or a tailor to fix most lingerie garments as long as they are bigger than what you need. In other words, if the garment is too small, then you are likely out of luck, but enlarging a garment is a minor to major production, while making it smaller is rather easy. Many of the professional dancers who frequent visit retail stores, seek a seamstress, or more frequently a relative like a mom, aunt, or friend who is familiar with a needle and thread to alter their garments, because they want and need to see to it that their outfit or costume truly fits. Most sexy lingerie garments are simply sewn, with no pockets, zippers, or other more complicated sewing configurations, and drawing in a seam is a simple matter of sewing the side seams and can be done in fifteen minutes or less. Remember this when purchasing an item, as altering it to fit is not a major undertaking.
Men often want to buy lingerie for the women in their lives and they are often bewildered. If you cannot or do not want to get her sizes by asking her or stealing a look in her lingerie drawer. Men will often say to sales associates for help in purchasing lingerie for their wife or girlfriend by saying, "my girlfriend or wife's breasts are about your size," but since the sales associates are clothed at all times the cannot tell you what type of bra she might be wearing. Nothing makes up for knowing her correct size, but any information is better than no information. Estimate as best you can her height, weight and other dimensions. As men are often steered with no to little sizing ideas away from items such as bras, corsets, and leather to items that are more likely to fit such as baby doll, chemises, and other items.
