• Whether it’s your first-time toy or your fifteenth, sometimes the sheer world of choice out there can make picking the perfect sex toy a little intimidating. Regardless of gender, many people can be overwhelmed with the volume of choice out there, and knowing how to narrow your search down can be tricky.

    However, before you slip your selection into your basket (as it were), there are a few things that you should consider so that you know you’re picking the perfect plaything.

    Lovehoney Captivate Me Wet Look and Lace Wired Body

    Incredibly popular in the 1980s and 1990s, teddies and bodysuits have recently seen a resurgence in popularity.

    Fashion bloggers are tucking them into high-waisted shorts, celebs are flashing them on the red carpet, and tons of high-street stores are once again slipping them onto the shelves.

    But whilst the fashion world is going crazy for teddies as outerwear, many of us are still reluctant to wear them as sexy lingerie - a fact that I found curious, as there are some truly stunning bedroom bodies out there.

    So I took to the forums to ask our customers about their reservations when it comes to the all-in-one, and some of the answers I got may surprise you...

    Read on below to see the most common teddy dilemmas, and my top tips for how to find the perfect body for your - well - body.

    Lovehoney Flaunt Me Red Floral Lace Balcony BasqueEarlier this week we revealed our latest Model of the Month, so now it's time to choose our top reviewer from the past month.

    Not only a matter of prestige, our chosen reviewer also gets a £100 Lovehoney gift voucher to spend as they choose.

    This month's prize goes to KitsiKiki, who reviewed the Lovehoney Flaunt Me Red Floral Lace Balcony Basque.

    "The bodice accentuates each and every curve precisely the way a basque should; hugging here and caressing there, just like your lover will. The good thing about grouped sizing (i.e. small, medium, large) instead of tailored measurements is the slightly stretchy quality which allows for changes in size/weight as well as simple preference. This basque is also equipped with a triple row of eyelet fasteners for added adjustability." Read the full review.

    Read on below to see if you were a runner up, and remember to submit your review now to be in the running next month.

    Let us know what you think by taking our survey below. You could be in with the chance of winning £180 of sex toys!
