Even though you know her better than just about anyone else, it can still be difficult to choose the right gifts for your wife. If it seems like you've given her tons of romantic gifts like chocolates and flowers, but a practical gift isn't what you're looking for either, why not treat your wife to a sexy gift like a piece of lingerie?

As much a gift for yourself as it is for her, lingerie is a great way to level things up in the bedroom, and to show her how much you appreciate her beauty. She's sure to feel like your queen as she slips into a sexy piece of lingerie that you chose just for her.

If you're looking for lingerie gifts for your wife, you've come to the right place. Here, we've included some helpful shopping tips, and as a bonus, we've rounded up 20 of the best lingerie pieces you can buy for your wife.

How to Buy Lingerie for Your Wife

If your wife doesn't wear lingerie a lot, it can help to familiarize yourself with the different lingerie types you can choose from. After all, lingerie runs the gamut from pretty and frilly to downright eye-popping. What's your wife's style? This is the first thing you'll want to consider when choosing the right piece of lingerie for her.

Secondly, make sure you know her size before shopping. While most places will allow for returns, it may be disappointing for your wife to receive a gift that isn't the right size. While some lingerie is sized similarly to bras, taking cup sizes and girth into account, you'll find that other pieces have more generic sizing, or even grouped sizing, like medium/large. This can be challenging when shopping for lingerie for your wife, so be sure to check out size charts where available. When in doubt, it's always okay to ask your wife what size she prefers, so that you're sure to get it right.
