You’ve probably seen articles about helping men buy lingerie, and some might be useful to you. The only thing about these tips is that they assume you’re buying the lingerie for someone else, and this can lead to problems, especially when you get flustered in a crowded store.
Lets look at some advice from experts and see how it applies to you.
From Luisa Loveday Founder Loveday London: “My best advice would be to spend time finding out about your partner and her style: girly, bondage, soft, hard, light, bright or dark, and then be sure to match her taste as best as you can.”
The fact that your partner likes the exact same style as you and wears the same size may be hard to explain.
From Fleur Turner CEO and founder Fleur of England: “Is she romantic? Does she like silk? Does she like lace? What colors does she wear?”
So far this advice sounds great, but can you remain cool calm and collected as you talk about silk and lace while holding a pretty babydoll nightie?
From Lucy Litwack Managing director Coco de Mer: “It is important the male customer feels at ease in the store.”
AHA! This is the key. You need to be brave, have confidence that you can comfortably browse all the pretty things, and buy whatever you like in your size. This is intimidating for most of you and many never make it into the store. Of course you can order online but you’ll miss a unique experience, not to mention how great it feels to conquer your fears.
I have an 11 minute recording that I made specifically for crossdressers that want to walk into any lingerie store as easily as walking into a McDonalds. Its called Lingerie Shopping Made Easy and its now free.
Put it on your iPod and listen on the way to the mall. It will be like I’m sitting right there giving you a pep talk.
Remember, the only thing you have to fear is fear itself. That, and maybe having to fight a large woman over the last pair of adorable boy shorts that are on sale.
