Why Men Fear Buying Lingerie


Lingerie is at the top of the list of intimate gifts for women, however the majority of husbands & boyfriends avoid buying lingerie because they feel it is too difficult to shop for it.  With so many choices & sizes, it can be daunting!  Many also fear they will make a purchase that sends the wrong message or that they will look like a pervert if found lingering in a lingerie store.

At Anna Bella, our sales team is always happy to help our gentlemen shoppers, but there are a few things they can do  before their visit to make their shopping experience is as enjoyable as possible.  


Pay attention to her preferences.  Does she love thongs or hate them?  Does she stick to classic black lingerie or enjoy bright colors? Does she love wearing a robe around the house in the mornings or while getting ready for a night out? Does she prefer silk or cotton? Of course, it's always fun to try something new once in a while!

Take a quick look through her lingerie drawer to get an idea of her bra and panty sizes. If you see several sizes, try to find a bra that you know she wears frequently and go with that size. If you see several pieces from one particular brand, it's a good chance it's a favorite of hers. 

When unsure about sizing, we are always happy suggest items that are an easier fit, such as a lovely bodysuit, chemise or robe. We want to help you knock it out of the park!


Once you have made your selections, we will to wrap them up in a beautiful bag so you will be ready to go!  Another fun tip is to stagger your gifting ... .one in the morning - another in the afternoon - maybe another left on the pillow.  If you want to kick it up a notch you can pair it with a bubble bath, perfume, or a note to tell her how special she is to you. No matter what you choose, the fact that you took the time to select something just for her will make her feel incredibly special.

Still feeling a little hesitant to take the plunge? Why not bring your loved one to Anna Bella for a shopping spree.   Our comfortable lounge area is perfect for men while their partners take their time in making the perfect selections.   It's a win-win!

Wish Lists

The luckiest of men will have a partner who has created a Wish List at Anna Bella.  Nothing can be simpler!  When you visit, all that is needed is to give us her name & we will let you select from the items that we know she loves. 

Ladies - feel free to forward this to the man in your life. We're sure he'll get the hint!
