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 with Rose secret. Sensual and chic underwear that can be worn everyday, whether for a romantic meal out or to make her smile at work is a far more thoughtful present than a black feather trimmed baby-doll which will be worn once and then be buried at the back of a cupboard.
With only a few weeks to St Valentine’s Day 2009, romantically inclined gentlemen will be building up the courage to enter the frighteningly female domain of the women’s underwear department – possibly for the second time in as many months if they chose lingerie for a Christmas gift.
No matter how in touch with their feminine side a man might be, a high street lingerie department or boutique is a daunting environment, which is why more and more men are discovering the delights of online shopping that work for them. Available at any time, easy to compare prices from site to site and often with loads of sizing and product information plus a worldwide selection to choose from – what could be better than shopping for that lingerie gift online? The key to successful online lingerie shopping is preparation. Always allow plenty of time for delivery. International transit can add as much as 2 or 3 weeks to the delivery time, and if you choose a made to measure or made to order garment then manufacturing time needs to be factored in as well.
So buy in time – usually about 4 to 5 weeks before you actually want the item will be enough time and so for Valentine’s Day the last order date should really be no later than the 14th January. Stick to that rule and you can relax. Measurements are the next very important preparation. If you are unsure of your partner’s size it is time to rummage in her lingerie drawer or the laundry basket to get those all important measurements. You will need, as a minimum, her dress size, bust and cup size. But to be really sure you are ordering the correct size it is also good to know her waist and hi measurements.
If still in doubt then always go for a small size… at least you won’t hurt your partner’s feelings by making her think you think she is fat! The last thing you need to do is check out the styles your lady likes – does she go for girly frills or sleek and sophisticated? Her lingerie drawer might be a mix of these and more but there should be a trend…. stick to it to avoid disappointment. Once you have decided the most favored style and gathered the size information, you are ready to go online and browse the huge range of lingerie on offer and choose with confidence some lovely lingerie that will arrive on time, fit perfectly and be a really welcomed gift. Have a happy Valentine’s Day.
