Sexy lingerie - any ideas

I want to treat my DH on his birthday. Never bought any Ann Summers style stuff before. Any thoughts on what I should go for?

CombineArvester Tue 20-Sep-11 20:28:47

Ann Summers not really sexy imho. Make sure he is really into this first and not be turned off that you have made such an effort he feels pressure to perform iyswim. Choose something together you are both comfortable with?

I didn't have a clue either but I did get one or two good ideas from the review site www.racyundies.co.uk

Take him with you when you buy it, my dh taste is not what you'd expect. More classy no basques etc.

ashash Thu 22-Sep-11 20:55:35

Don't want to choose with him as I won't to surprise him. Have had a look at the website mentioned (some cheesy reviews - but fun) and one or two others and am thinking of going the whole hog with some 'open crotch' and 'peephole bra' stuff. No man's going to refuse this are they?

Love Honey?

Sorry to dissappoint you but yes some men would be horrified at that. I love my wife tons and find her the sexiest woman on planet earth but if I came home to find her wearing crotchless undies and peep hole bra I would be instantly turned off! I prefer a bit of mystery and class. Classic simple white lace does it for me nothing too 'trashy'
Sorry but all men are different so yours many be thinking all his xmases have 'come' at once.
Good Luck.

Pandoras choice is far more classy.

My DH would hate crotchless/peephole/fishnet bodystocking etc.

Surely you have an inkling as to what he would find alluring?

I bought crotchless pants and my DH loved them!!! I have just bought this lovely basque from Ann Summers reduced from £50 to £30

Sorry link didn't work!!

It's the Leading Lady Long Line Basque & G-String Set in the sale pages, they have some good offers at the mo. My friend is having a bluebella party so have a look on there too

My dh and I love this designer. Very classy and sexy. Not the cheapest but I bought my stuff from the sales.

I also love this website. Shame that they're closing down but it does mean that they have stuff going for clearance.

This one has an amazing range but very £££.

A bit more affordable. Similar to some of the styles seen already.

Not a crotchless pair of knickers in sight.

Have fun shopping.

Sorry. First link doesn't appear to be working.

First link should be this. Ayten Gassen.

It takes all sorts but some of this stuff looks far too classy for my DH. I'm afraid, the 'cheaper' looking the better for him.

brianmayshair Sat 24-Sep-11 18:57:25

I love myla although their corsets never stay on long enough to be worth the price.

Good corset every time for me, they make you feel amazing.

gazzalw Sat 24-Sep-11 18:58:45

It's got to be Agent Provocateur..... Or Coco de Mer.....

KeliW Sat 24-Sep-11 22:25:17

My DH will be glad that I've joined mumsnet. This forum has inspired me to dig out the stockings and sussies and give hime a treat when he comes up in a little while

ashash Fri 30-Sep-11 20:34:02

Just to let anybody know that is still following this thread: - the peephole bra and open crotch set went down VERY WELL!

ashash Fri 30-Sep-11 20:36:06

I know I've had some good suggestions, but I would still be happy if anybody can recommend another good website / particularly good set for our next 'special night'

cleanteeth Sat 01-Oct-11 12:08:36

I love all the websites linked but DP wouldn't like it at all.

IMO you cant go wrong with a nice matching bra and pants in whatever style suits your shape, nothing to lurid in colour unless thats what you like. A good selection of toys always brightens up the evenings and really helps make it last longer.

glasscompletelybroken Sat 01-Oct-11 12:27:57

My DH likes all the sexy stuff I have that we have chosen together. I agree with the posters who have said you have to be sure what your DH would like. I know it's not a surprise but it's a very sexy thing choosing it together.

If I was you I would get him a voucher for Ann Summers - go there together and choose something lovely. You'll be ripping each others clothes off before you get home and through the door!

aliceliddell Sat 01-Oct-11 12:31:03

I had no idea Ann Summers made basques and thongs for men.
Make sure you get his size right.

McPie Sun 02-Oct-11 10:56:31

I would always choose Lovehoney because of their 365 day returns policy. I have bought loads of stuff that looks nice on the model but in reality does not suit my body shape, there are reviews on products which gives you an idea if it comes up short in length or small on size or any other issues that may help you make a decision on what to buy. I have been a customer for nearly 3 years now and would not buy from anywhere else now.

If your husband loves you like I love my wife, sexy underwear entails......nothing at all, you are sexy as you are to your man. If you want to feel sexy for yourself image, then, yes, Ann summers is the way forward.

ChelseaBun Sun 24-Nov-13 20:02:29

Men are weird. I had all kinds of sexy dress up stuff but my ex was left cold by it.

But a simple cotton khaki vest I wore used to get him ravenous! Go figure!
