The History of Valentines Day
St. Valentines day has its origins in the pagan customs of the third or fourth century BC and coincides with the Fertility Festival of Ancient Rome, over time the festival was Christianised and became a festival in celebration of love rather than lust.
In 1537 King Henry VIII decreed by Royal Charter that all of England would celebrate Saint Valentines Day on February 14 and most of the world now celebrates the day by exchanging cards and tokens of affection. Of course one of the most common gifts to give your lover on Valentines day is lingerie.
Why buy Lingerie for Valentines Day?
Valentines Day gifts should be intimate and special tokens of love. Lingerie perfectly matches that requirement, making the recipient feel special and bringing pleasure to the gift giver as well. A well chosen Valentines lingerie gift is also a thoughtful present, showing you have taken time and care in selecting something the recipient will appreciate.
What type of Lingerie makes the best Valentines gift?
While the obvious answer is "sexy lingerie!"
Sexy doesn't necessarily mean skimpy thongs and barely there bras! A woman looks and feels her most sexy in flattering underwear which feels good against her skin, enhances her figure and is clearly high quality, we are confident that you will find what your looking for when you shop for lingerie online HERE.The traditional colours for Valentines lingerie are red the colour of lust and passion, white with its pure and innocent appeal pink is the traditionally feminine colour. Pink is also associated with Valentines day since the burial of St Valentine, when the Pink Almond Tree came into blossom.
What type of Underwear do women want?
Men often like sinfully dark coloured underwear but be warned however that while ladies like to be spoilt most women are at heart quite practical and if your loved one has no dark blouses or t-shirts to wear over the sexy black lingerie she would probably prefer something a little more subtle so she can enjoy your present on a regular basis!
Classy ladies appreciate classy lingerie but they also appreciate you making the effort to choose something that is appropriate for them. Many younger women like to wear lingerie that is designed to be on display with sexy Leavers Lace edging to peek out of a neckline. Curvy ladies may prefer a full cup bra than a couple of silky triangles held together with elastic, and petite ladies may like a bra which subtly enhances their figure, However be warned unless you know she wants one most women would rather not receive a wonderbra as a Valentines gift!
Thongs are sexy, but many women don't like the feel of thongs or g-strings for everyday wear - if your lady falls into this category why not try a pair of beautiful and sexy lace shorties instead?
Lace is both attractive and luxurious, but make sure you choose high quality lace - there's nothing worse than scratchy cheap lingerie against the skin or lace which shrinks when washed.
Ladies, Why buy lingerie for yourself for Valentines day?
First and foremost because you deserve it! New underwear makes you feel sexy and if you feel sexy you are sexy, so treat yourself to a new bra and panties, or to a full set with suspender belt and garters, and enjoy feeling sexy and sophisticated without spending a fortune!
You can also buy your self some underwear as a treat for your Valentine. Men love to buy their wives and girlfriends sexy Valentines lingerie in part because they love to see you looking so amazing, so why not choose your own lingerie and wow them with your new look after (or during!) a sultry evening this Valentines Day.
