A gift of beautiful lingerie for that special someone can make her feel desired and appreciated. However, care must be taken when choosing lingerie, to insure is it the perfect gift she will love forever.

Here at La Bella Rose we understand how daunting the process can be so we have provided some hints and tips to make your shopping experience much more fun and easier.


Sizing is essential to get right when purchasing lingerie and is the part that can often be overlooked or taken for granted. It is advised that you do some investigative work and check her current bra and brief sizes.

What do you need to look for?

Each bra has a band size (e.g. 34 and a cup size (e.g.) you will find this on the wash care label on any bra now it may have sizes in UK and EUR but you can match them up on our size chart or you can have a little sneak into her dresser drawer or maybe if you have a mutual female friend or maybe her best friend you can ask them. It is very important to know each of these sizes as this will determine how the bra fits.

The size of the briefs is also important. Most styles come in XS-XL range while some may range from sizes 8-16. If you are in doubt, you can always refer to our sizing chart.

Colour and Style

The colour and style of the lingerie can have a great impact on the way it is received. Have a think about the message you are trying to send through the gift; is it to expand her everyday lingerie wardrobe, simply make her feel special, or to spice things up? Once you have decided on the message, think about what she usually wears to achieve this. For example, if she wears a full coverage bra for everyday use, it is advisable to stick to this style when buying her a lingerie set she can wear on a daily basis. This also applies to briefs. It is important to select something that she will feel comfortable in and is likely to wear.

If there is a particular colour she favours, try mixing up the style. On the other hand, if there is a particular style she likes, try mixing up the colours.

Hint: Women who generally wear the same style of bra (push up vs. non-padded) or same colouring (dark vs. bright), are often happy with that style and colour. By following what she already likes while slightly mixing up one variation, you will be sure to get her something she will love.
