No matter what you buy and wear your OH will love it.

I have tried to do this numerous times then bottled it at the last minute due to the awkward "let me just slip into something more comfortable" cliche grin
I would die of cringe shouting him up the stairs to me lay on the bed like bloody piffy so I have a drawer full of sassy underwear that I haven't had the bottle to show him.
The few times I have actually managed to go through with it I have put the underwear on underneath an outfit when we have been going to dinner or something similar, so when we have got home a bit tipsy I have slunk out of my outfit and voila!
I am quite an ungraceful creature though so whilst in my mind (after a few glasses of old dutch) I look like Marilyn Monroe when in reality I probs look like a half pissed donkey trying to get out of a hammock.
All fun and games, besides, it's the thought that counts! halo

God I read that as linguine advice and I can honestly say that sums up my sex life at the moment!

Hold ups are easier than stockings if it's just fancy for the bedroom and saves buying a suspender belt

My go-to is Brazilian knickers and matching bra or bralet. I don't feel it is overly porn-star-esque like some of the Ann Summers stuff (just my personal opinion!) but still looks classy & sexy - works for my DH anyway ;)

Playful promises have a sale on right now - there stuff is lovely! And sexy too.

I bought the Leila bra and it is just lovely - typical before the sale haha.

OP - the main thing is to feel confident in what you're wearing. DH likes lingerie but says confidence is the most sexy thing!

You could have a look on The Agent Provokateur site? La Perla do some pretty things but very expensive. Show him what you would like and maybe send him a link to get him to buy it as a gift. I would never buy luxury lingerie for myself, but it's nice if DH does "because I'm worth it" grin To begin with, if you're a bit shy, wear it under your dress if you're going out and then let him discover it when you get home after a few glasses of wine!

Good luck!

The Entice range at Asda has some lovely stuff in right now, also try Pour Moi?

My lingerie obsession is wasted on the OH though, the most I've got out of him is "This is pretty. Take it off".

Also cannot recommend highly enough that you join the FairyBoobmother group on Facebook for fitting advice, she can fit you from a photograph and she's like a magical bra genius.

I love a babydoll. Because it covers my belly!

My children keep asking what I want for my birthday (I'll be 70 tomorrow). I keep asking my DW for her size so I can direct the DC to Anne Summers. My DW has more sense than me and tells me to behave.
To be serious I'll say as a man that if the OP tries to look good for her DH or DP he will be pleased and love her for it. We all want to look good for those we love.

Mimi Holliday do lovely stuff. It's quite expensive but they have sales and 25% off sometimes. Also very wearable.

Dashper Tue 21-Mar-17 21:20:52

Heidi Klum underwear is really pretty. Go with something you like that fits you and supports you so you'll feel confident. Stockings are the work of the devil.

As for the great reveal, I tend to enter the room in just my underwear and clear my throat to get DH's attention.

I find wearing hold you'd under mid thigh length skirt, and just letting it ride up slightly over the course of the evening is fun. OH sits at the table working, then reaches out and grabs me as I walk past. It always ends wellwink

I'd recommend hold ups too, as there's the debate over suspenders of wether to wear the belt over or under the knickers. I wear a nice dress (to show I'm wearing stockings) then get handsy to show I'm in the mood, if you're feeling brave you could do undress slowly in front of them (I tried doing a strip tease once, MORTIFYING so now it's just a slow undress and a wiggle) or let them unwrap their present themselves smile

I've never worn anything nice for the bedroom before and am cringing at the thought of it to be honest...no idea why!

If you're cringing at the thought of it, why are you doing it?

Sex-as-woman-performing-for-the-man makes me cringe, too. Which is why that concept doesn't feature in my relationship. I'm much, much happier for it.
