Valentine’s back-up gift

Jeff has written some great stuff lately about how to buy a lingerie Valentine’s Day gift for your other half. So now it’s time for a woman’s point of view… One very important statement he made was about buying the right size. If you buy somthing too large you may insult your sweetheart. (No one wants to hear her snarl “Do you really think I’m size XYZ?”) If you buy too small and she can’t wear your gift, what’s the point of buying it?

If Jeff’s comparison of body types and celebrities and “how to find her style” tips have not helped you, and you are still clueless as to what size to buy, then buy pajamas! Seriously, silk jammies or a nightgown/robe set are easy to size and will get worn in the case of almost every woman out there. There’s no cup size to worry about. You can look in her favorite dress or pants and know her size, and then equate that to Small, Medium Large in seconds. (US sizes: 0-2 x-small, 4-6 small, 8-10 medium, 12-16 large, 18-20 XL…)

Here are some gorgeous options:
