    Spice up your Valentine's Day
     

    Nothing entices a girl’s inner Venus like a luxurious set of lingerie.

    From sensuous silks to glow-in-the-dark garters, the right skivvies will tease out her flirty side and make a great gift on Feb. 14.

    But buy something inappropriate (or heaven forbid the wrong size), and Cupid’s Bow might painfully backfire.

    Peeking in her lingerie drawer will help suss-out styles and sizes, recommends Tiffany Ajmo of Montreal-based Blush Lingerie. Then think about her taste and forget about yours.

    “The sexiest woman is someone who feels great in what she is wearing,” says Ajmo.


    “Is she a romantic? Then go for something sweet and pretty, maybe a floral print, or a long, flowing gown. Is she fun and flirty? Then a short, sexy babydoll may do the trick. Is she more of a vixen? Then we suggest a push-up bra for added cleavage and thong bottom. Does she love the Brigitte Bardot look? Then a retro set would be great, a wide strapless bra and high retro brief.”

    Lingerie Buying Tips:

    • Search her lingerie drawer to find her favourite styles (thongs, briefs, shorts), fabrics (lace, cotton, satin, silk) and sizes.
    • If you don’t know her size, chemises and camisoles are more generic
    • A gift should be more luxurious than the every-day pair they would buy themselves
    • Black is a safe bet but reds, pinks and other colours are all fun for Valentine’s Day

     

    Will you be buying lingerie for Valentine's Day?
