It’s that time of year again! If your significant other has a fuller bust but you’ve got no idea how to go about buying lingerie for them, here’s a few pointers to help you through.

Finding the correct size

If you know their size – you’re one step ahead of the rest. If you can search their lingerie drawer for bra sizes, make sure you look at a few different bras that they usually wear. If you have a fuller bust, you’re more likely to have purchased a number of different sizes in different brands and in different shapes and styles of bras. Take note of the most found brand in her drawer and stick with that for a size, you may even want to stay with that brand for your purchase as then you will know it will definitely fit.

Beyond the bra

What if you don’t want to get them a bra but still want it to be lingerie? There are lots of other items that are suited for the fuller bust such as playsuits, rompers, babydolls, and teddies. Never buy something that is sized S, M, L, XL, as these will rarely fit larger breasts. Look for a brand specifically designed for the fuller bust as these will more than likely be better suited for your valentine.

It’s all about support

Avoid anything that doesn’t have support in the bust. I know the cami sets and cute chemises can look a treat, but these are usually only for the smaller bust and those that don’t need support. Look for these styles that have a seam under the bust and will more likely offer support for your partner’s chest.

Fuller busts are usually quite specific about their taste, comfort, brands, and colours they wear. So if in doubt, remember to ask them or suss it out beforehand.

The backup plan

You can always keep the receipt and make sure they know it’s able to be returned or exchanged if it doesn’t fit or isn’t to their taste. Most briefs are not returnable so keep this in mind too.

Other gift ideas

If you’re too overwhelmed by the prospect of buying lingerie, there are lots of other options for the busty person in your life.

  1. Shoes (but once again need to know their size).
  2. Jewellery: Earrings, a bracelet or an anklet are a good choice, especially if you’re a way off popping the question. You don’t want to get their hopes up!
  3. Chocolates are also a good additional pressie if you’re wanting to go the extra mile.
  4. Flowers – yes of course. Who doesn’t love flowers? But these only last a short amount of time and then, are a chore when it comes time to throw them away. Preserved flowers are a great way to avoid this! They’ll be looking beautiful for years to come.
  5. A flowering plant. One that they can keep on their desk at work and tend to, or better still, put one in the garden with a bow around it. This is also another gift that keeps on giving.
  6. Wine and a cheese board on a picnic date shows you’ve taken the time to prepare.
  7. Perfume. What’s not to love about a partner that gives you perfume. Another gift that you wear all day and are constantly reminded of. Make sure you choose one that they don’t already have. A sneaky way to find out what they like is to casually wander through the department store and carefully watch what they gravitate towards.
  8. A couple’s sex toy. You’re not being replaced, don’t worry, just adding to the vibe – literally.
  9. A dinner date is always a good option.
  10.  If you’re not the dinner type then a movie date, escape room session or a hot air balloon ride can make for a memorable date.

What not to buy

Never buy anything to do with chores, even though they may say they’d love the latest Dyson vac, it’s not what they want for Valentine’s Day. If you really want to buy them a Dyson, opt for the Airwrap. Also, no washing machines, blenders, mops, dust busters or anything that has recently broken or needs replacing.

I’m sure whatever you decide to do on the most romantic day of the year will be perfect. Whether this be lingerie, a cruise, or just hanging out under the stars. There’s no specific ‘one present’ that works for everyone. You know your partner the best!
