Many moons ago, I used to work at M&S in the lingerie department and Christmas was always one of my most amusing times of the year, one by one the men would appear in the lingerie department, trying to look confident but failing miserably. I soon lost count of the number of times that I would ask, “what size is your wife/girlfriend” and they would either look me up and down and say “about the same size as you” or hold their cupped hands up and say “about this big”. Sorry guys but that isn’t the way. Occasionally the accomplished buyer would come in having already rifled through his good ladies drawers (so to speak) and noted down the correct sizes but even then choosing the right style could be a problem. Us ladies can be pretty awkward creatures to buy for, especially when it comes to something as personal as underwear so there is no wonder that our guys break out in a hot sweat at the mere thought of Christmas shopping for our ‘perfect gift’. To try to make this Christmas task a little easier on our men, M&S have put together a lingerie buying guide for men . . .
