#1 Avoid red! It may look great on a model who is casually laying on a chez-lounge, but for most women red looks cheap and tacky. And you don’t want your beloved to feel this way, do you? A hideous red thong could mean that you will spend the night alone. And that’s not really the point of Valentine’s Day, now is it?Agent-Provocateur-GQ-02Feb15_pr_b_642x390

#2 Don’t buy crotchless pants! Nobody, and I really mean, nobody likes them.adriana-lima-victoria-s-secret-january-2014-4

#3 Stay clear of multiple straps, ribbon ties or fiddly bits! It’s necessary to take them off and love should be effortless.Irina-Shayk-6_GQ_25Apr12_pr_b_1

#4 Get the size right! You can sneak around the closet and try to find out her size.victorias-secret-valentines-day13

#5 If you want her to wear the lingerie more than just once, think about getting something comfortable. A bra is like a second skin, so don’t buy anything just because it’s beautiful and sexy. Get something that is sexy and comfortable and you can be sure that she’s going to use it more often.candice-swanepoel-victorias-secret-underwear-pictures03

#6 If you don’t know what color she likes, or whether she prefers silk or lace, get something classic and modern, like a black or nude silk push up bra.0_fb3be_e29d5547_origHave fun picking the perfect piece for the perfect night!
