Shopping for women's bras and panties can be challenging for a man. You may not know the size to buy or the style or types of bras and panties to purchase. Plus, the varieties can seem overwhelming. In addition, different women prefer different styles. On the other hand, you may want to purchase bras and panties as a gift but simply feel shy about purchasing them. Although this type of shopping may be embarrassing for some men, you can still buy your significant other bras and panties while maintaining your dignity.
Locate the size of the bras and panties your significant other wears. This step is easy if you live together. Take a look at her things while she is gone. Locate the tags that give sizes. Not all of the items will have a tag, but if you find one, you have won half the battle. You know her size. If you aren't trying to surprise her, you can ask her what size she wears.
Visit a store with plenty of female sales clerks. Hand over the size information you have written down and ask for assistance. The sales clerk will probably ask you what types of bras and panties your significant other normally wears. Describe or point out the style to the sales clerk.
Locate a sales clerk who seems to be about the size of your significant other if you don't have bra and panty sizes written down. If you can't find a sales clerk of a similar size, look for a female customer who appears to be a similar size. Explain to her that you are buying your significant other a gift, that you don't know what size to buy, and that she seems to be of a similar size. Then ask her if she would mind going to a female sales clerk and giving her size to the sales clerk, who could then assist you in picking out the items. This way, the customer doesn't have to reveal her size to you.
