A Guide to Christmas Lingerie

  • Occasions

It’s November 2nd, which means one thing... Christmas is coming (although it is my birthday tomorrow, which is arguably more important). It’s the time to spread joy and cheer, which basically means it’s the perfect opportunity to gift some Christmas lingerie, either to yourself or someone else. 

Whether you’re shopping for yourself, your partner, or even your friend (friends can buy underwear too), we’ve got it all. That might be some sexy Christmas lingerie, a Christmas lingerie set or even some plus size Christmas lingerie, which is why I’ve got recommendations for everything!

Christmas Lingerie: Finding the Right Size

I recently published a Lingerie Buying Guide for Men, where I went through three steps to buying lingerie for your partner. The steps to buying Christmas lingerie are pretty similar, with the outcome changing to a more festive gift. 

The first step is finding a size. Whilst lingerie makes an amazing gift, it is one that’s a bit more difficult because you do need an exact size to work from. If you live together, finding this out isn’t going to be too hard. If you don’t, my best advice is to invite yourself round, sneak off to the toilet and pray that you don’t get caught. 

Obviously this doesn’t apply if you’re looking for Christmas lingerie for yourself. Hopefully, you already know your sizes, and if you don’t, now’s a good opportunity to visit my selection of Bra Fitting Guides. How to Measure Your Bra Size is probably the best one to start with. Again, if you already know everything about your size, skip this part.

Lingerie Sizes

If you’re a bit confused as to what lingerie sizes are or what they mean, don’t panic. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Bras sizes are made up of a number and a letter. The number will probably be between 28-50 and the letter will be between AA-K. 
  • Knickers are sized with either letters, numbers, or a combination of the two. This looks something like ‘M’, ‘12’, or ‘M-12’.
  • Bodysuits, suspenders and other lingerie will also be sized like this.

Sexy Christmas Lingerie

The next step is to know what you’re looking for. You can either check out my guide on Types of Bras here, or you can skip straight to my recommendations and pick out whatever takes your fancy.

The most obvious place to start is with sexy Christmas lingerie. Nice lingerie is always a guaranteed win, so buying some sexy Christmas lingerie for your partner is bound to go down well. Even if you’re buying for yourself, you can always enjoy sexy lingerie on your own. We all deserve to feel good and confident, and a bit of sexy lingerie is often a way to ensure that.

Aubade Rosessence

Sexy and red go hand-in-hand anyway, but with Christmas, it’s all the more appropriate. For this, I recommend Aubade’s Rosessence collection in Gala. Gala is a stunning rich red shade, making it perfect for the festive period and for sexy lingerie. The collection also features gold jewel Swarovski crystal details, meaning that it’s not only sexy, but it’s also really luxurious and elegant, too. 

Whilst it might seem a little on the pricey side, it's completely worth it. Christmas is also the one time you can justify splashing out a bit more, so if not now, when?!

Lingerie for Christmas

If you want to step away from traditional colours, I’ve got just the thing...

Marie Jo Avero

Marie Jo’s Avero collection in Tiny Jade is festive and fun without the red. With flower strap detailing, a gingham print and a plunge neckline, it’s fashionable AND provides a fabulous cleavage.

Plus Size Christmas Lingerie

If you’re looking for plus size Christmas lingerie, you’re in luck. At BraForMe, we proudly stock an inclusive range of sizes, so there’s nothing off limits. 

Gossard Glossies

One of our latest additions to the best-selling Glossies collection from Gossard is the Rich Brown and Bronze colourways. In my opinion, these shades scream winter. They're also available in cup sizes A-G, making them the perfect option for some plus size Christmas lingerie with a twist.
