Buying lingerie for the woman in your life is a daunting prospect. Cue the sweaty palms, the sudden inability to make a decision and the dreaded “lingerie shakes” (we made that bit up), and the thought of a boring bar of chocolate is suddenly the best gift idea.

But fear not. We’ve quizzed the Lovehoney lingerie experts and rifled through customer reviews to come up with a list of quite possibly the 10 Best Lingerie Gifts you’ll ever set eyes on. Forget the sweaty palms. This list is your new best friend.

    If your favourite lady has curves that need shouting about, this is the gift for her.

    • Curve-flattering design available in basic and plus size
    • Plastic boning to smooth and sculpt
    • Padded underwired cups
    Ideal for:

    • Giving a confidence-boost to those with and without curves (create or enhance)
    • Special occasions
    What they say:
