The Ultimate Lingerie Gift Guide by M&S

Submitted by on Monday, 16 December 2013 | No Comment

M&S is ubiquitous in the lingerie market, well known for selling beautiful and affordable underwear, as well as their free bra fitting service. We thought we would take a look through some of their best pieces to make a gift of this Christmas. Whether you’re treating yourself to some good quality underwear or your significant other, lingerie can make the perfect and most personal gift.

First of all, think about the body shape you’re buying for. A bigger bust tends to suit a balcony style bra, whereas a smaller bust can suit a plunge style (maybe with a bit of padding if you’re feeling cheeky). Make sure you have the proper measurements to hand so the bra is flattering and comfortable as well as supportive. Plus you don’t want panties that are bagging at the bum just as much and you don’t want them digging into your skin and creating a permanent VPL. Sizing is key!

Once that is figured out, decide which shades will flatter the skin tone, as well as what style of underwear suits the personality of the wearer. All in all, make sure what you buy appeals to their taste (don’t be selfish here boys…) otherwise it just won’t get worn.


Opt for silky, luxurious lounge-wear in flattering and feminine shades. Edges of French designed lace add an expensive looking touch.

Matching Sets

The most practical as well as thoughtful gift has to be the matching set. It can be worn on a daily basis or be that thrilling little treat to slip on every now and again. Either way, it’s something many women want a collection to be proud of. These sets make the use of luxurious fabrics (silk and lace) as well as beautiful colours to create something that is a real treat to own.
