    as someone who has varied from a 10 ( too skinny) to an 18 I would say that a 14 -16 isnt large.

    What does she like/normally buy for herself? It would be a good start point. If you give us more details we can make better suggestions.

    Is there a particular part of her that she doesnt like and would want to cover up in order to feel sexy?

    she finds her tummy the worst part but i can see nothing wrong with it. i agree that she is not large but i cant seem to make her feel that way. she would not buy lingerie for herself but likes if i get her some. so i dont really know what she would be into herself. i hope that helps. thanks GG

    There's tonnes of babydolls and chemises here, which are really sexy and slinky without being too revealing. The "Plus Size" stuff starts at size 18, so stick to the standard sizes and you'll be fine.

    As for toys...there are some fabulous high-end vibrators and toys for couples. The blog has a good overview - http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/sex-toys/buyers-guide/sex-toy-guide-luxury-sex-toys/

    Good luck!

    Ok had a quick look and found these 2 http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=20639

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=21388 and as someone who had 3 babies in 3 years I understand the tummy issue.

    These should cover that area and boost her confidence

    Hope that helps

    A couple of things first it doesn't matter what her size is ladies can be sexy no matter how big secondly size 14 to 16 is the average size for women in the uk so I wouldn't consider her large however if it's her tummy that she is most self contious about then how about a basque or corset (in my opinion you can never get better than a basque anyway).

    I think almost every woman can understand with having "bits" they're not too happy about but the good thing is that Lovehoney offer a variety of lingerie that deals with "problem" areas.

    I can personally recommend this- http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=16862 I linked you to the larger size because it is incredibly stretchy and does wonders in tucking in the stomach area. It really is gorgeous too! Lingerie with a loose flowing waist works too as the people above have suggested- http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=17454 in red is gorgeous.

    Also, something like this makes a lot of women embrace the curves and accentuates the bits they want: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=16661 Or this for a better value- http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=3336

    With the lingerie it's best to keep it within the realms of what you think she'd like to try and would make her feel good. Keep in mind also that Lovehoney offers free returns and delivery for anything you're not happy with.

    I'd suggest the lelo Mia as a luxury good value toy. It's mainly for clitoral stimulation but is a good choice for a first time toy. It also oozes luxury with it's packaging. http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=14703

    Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    Hi des69er,

    There's already been some good suggestions and I echo the comments about size.

    The only thing I feel I should add is this: *sometimes* the sizing can come up small on lingerie. I'm a size 12 and I have recently bought a Plus Size set that had a starting size of Size16 and I found it fitted me perfectly. I would be tempted to browse the Plus Size section (she need not know lingerie was bought from that department) and choose something from there, because the last thing you want to do is give her a gorgeous babydoll or something only to find it's tight and then upset her because she feels she's not even a Size14-16... Hope that makes sense?

    Lovehoney have a great returns policy, but I am just thinking of how she may feel if the gift you treat her to doesn't fit right or flatter her.

    If you don't fancy ordering from that range, then just check the reviews as most people are leaving details of sizing in the reviews these days (I know I do!)

    In my experience, Seven Til Midnight are accurate on sizing and I love everything I've bought from that brand - I've brought 5 sets recently!

    Here's the Plus Size range:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/lingerie/sexy-plus-size-18/all/all/seven-til-midnight/all/all/all/

    I also highly rate the Je Joue Mimi: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=20746 because it comes in a gorgeous presentation case and is fabulous all round, plus it's rechargable and it's something you can share too, but any clitoral vibrator would be great.

    I think you're doing an awesome thing for your girl and I hope she loves whatever you choose.

    I have this in red :

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=18522

    The sizing is accurate and they sell it in a 14-16... It's very flattering and comfortable! The only thing I'd say is get a nice gift bag to pop it in as it only comes in a plastic envelope.
