Lingerie shopping can be intimidating for men, sure, so Frederick's of Hollywood has taken the liberty of suggesting some helpful hints for your boyfriend. Basically, all guys need to know is what kind of girl they're dating. In their words, a man just needs "a little insight on her personality (and his wallet of course!)"
If he's shopping for the "Fearless Flirt," Frederick's recommends something "as sassy as she is." "The Party Girl"— a.k.a the one who's "out until dawn and always ready for more!"—gets a sequined corset. If he's shopping for the girl who knows what she wants and demands that he listen up, a black teddy is the way to go, while "The Heartbreaker" gets a bra and panty set.
That's one way to shop for lingerie, but of course, what these poor guys probably need is a guide for finding a girlfriend who isn't terrifying.
