Men's Guide To Buying Lingerie & Sex Toys
Relax. Take a deep breath. This isn't going to be so tough. The girls at Scarlet help guys every day with birthday and anniversary gifts and hundreds at Christmas and Valentines Day so you're in safe hands. If at the end of reading this you are still not sure we offer gift cards. Women LOVE to receive Scarlet gift cards. It gives her a chance to splurge and surprise you instead.
A little effort is required, but not much. Take a peek in her lingerie drawer, note down a couple of things; the bra size she wears, both the number and the letter(s) e.g. 34C, a couple of the brands she tends to buy, the style; lacy, soft, padded etc. and whether she favours colours or neutrals (beige). Do the same for her panties. Does she wear barely there thongs or is she into boy shorts (think gym shorts style).
If you can't get access to the information we mention above, that's OK. It's good if you know she is small, medium or large. Armed with this information you can choose from babydolls, chemises, garter belts and stockings. Mary Green and Betsey Johnson are a great place to start if you are not sure. Most of Mary Green's styles are in very affordable silk with a great range of fun colours. On a day to day basis most women like softer colours, but if in doubt black always looks sexy and sophisticated and is a sure bet.
Now you have the vital information the rest is easy. If you are feeling confident then shop away. If you have questions give us a call at 604 605 1601 or send us an e-mail to info@ScarletShop.com or best of all come into the store. Stay out of the dog house. Think of lingerie as a car,. There are Ford’s which will get the job done, and Ferrari’s which every man dreams of. Lingerie is similar. Sexy lingerie may look great in pictures but there is a reason for the price difference. Buy the very best that your budget will allow. She will appreciate the quality even if you don’t. La Perla, Elle Macpherson and Betsey Johnson are amongst the many excellent designers we have to choose from.
If you still can’t make up your mind, gift cards do make a great alternative choice. That way you can select together after she receives it or she can choose on her own and surprise you instead. Just pick a value, now double it, after all she is worth it, and then go to gift cards.
It's a pretty straight forward process. We focus on the quality of the items we offer, cherry picking only the best books, toys, lubes and lotions available, so you can be confident in your purchases. This way you save time on your research and you can both spend more time enjoying what you get. Check out our sex toy guide and impress her with your level of knowledge. Believe us. Every guy should know this stuff. The "How to Choose" section of the toy guide is a great place to start.
Our most popular gift toys are usually external vibrators. Nea comes beautifully packaged and Laya comes in a great range of colours. Both are excellent high quality pleasure toys. You can always go for something more adventurous next time. Generally toys from Lelo and Fun Factory are excellent gifts. The packaging for Lelo toys (or "pleasure objects" as they like to call them) is perfect for gift giving. A recent addition is the We-vibe which has become our most popular couples toy. If you have any questions at all we are here to help. Just call on 604 605 1601, e-mail email@example.com or come into the store. We are here to make it fun for you and our discretion is always assured.
No matter what toy you buy always get some lubricant to use with it. Water based is usually the smartest choice to start, if you don't use lube now you always will once you try it. Believe us it's an essential.
Set the mood. You could add some aromatic massage candles, perhaps some massage oil or choose from our Romance Kits which are wonderful for a couple to share. Scent and flavour help set the mood stimulating the senses, allowing the two of you to enjoy the experience even more.
Put the emphasis on giving her a wonderful overall experience, because if you do we can assure you it'll pay back many times over. Make sure to gift wrap (we can do that for you) and if possible get a card; the little touches make a big difference. Now take the plunge and try something new. Remember it is always better to give than to receive.
