Lingerie shopping is tricky at the best of times. If you've tried and failed to find the perfect lingerie gift for your partner before, it can be tempting to write off the whole experience and stick with some flowers instead. Flowers are lovely, but most of us girls would like a present too. Oh, and some chocolate.
If you're left jaded by the world of female undergarments (and not even our Guide to Lingerie Styles could help), then there's an easy solution you can try: the wonderful world of the One Size garment.
These beauteous items of clothing are designed to fit and flatter most figures, making one size items as close to a dead cert as you can get.
This guide should give you all the information you need to buy the ideal one size lingerie for your lover, and we've even listed our top ten favourite pieces to make the choice even easier.

Welcome to 2011 and the first sex toy reviews round up of the year - and what a mixed bag it is. Pleasures, pains and trouble finding just the right words to explain the… whatsit.
This week's sex toy review round up
First up this week was cahill87 who gave the highly-rated China Brush Delay Solution a whirl. But maybe it was a little too successful as "40 minutes later, I was exhausted and out of breath and still hadn't climaxed! If I'm honest I was also slightly bored too." Read the review.

Review of the Month
Getting in early on 1 December and swooping the Review of the Month title was minutehand with his review of Monogamy: A Hot Affair Game. Minutehand's expertly written review was informative, exciting and succinct. Here's a snippet to get you going:
"What makes it especially great is that with the different levels of intimacy on the cards, your game can be as sweet or as sexy as you desire, depending on your mood. The standard rules progress gradually through all 3 levels as your counters pass along the board - intimate, passionate and steamy, but mix it up how you like. Go through a whole game of "intimate" cards if you're a new couple or just want a honey-sweet time cuddling in pillows, or up the heat on the winter fire with the "passionate" and "steamy" cards if you're up for a raunchier time. If you've managed to hold yourselves back by the game's end, choose yourselves a fantasy from the very well-written black cards and bring things to a climax."
Because there's nothing sexier than real, confident people, Lovehoney encourages all customers to upload photos of themselves wearing gorgeous lingerie and costumes for the chance to win £100 to spend on sex toys, sexy lingerie or sexy costumes.

We loved this festive picture of the Christmas Sweetheart Costume and give kissy karen top marks for braving the snow to get this picture perfect shot.

It's 2011 and all of the festive over indulgence had me hankering for the first peaceful week of the year, settling back into the mundane predictability of everyday life. It has been nice to go home and relax on my sofa after work with no pressure to find a dress, do yet another alcohol shop for visiting guests or prepare dinner for anyone but myself. Bliss.
I do get easily bored when I'm home alone though, so I'm turning to the Salegasm! for some new toys to play with. Not quite ready to let the indulgence of Christmas go, like a magpie I've been drawn to the luxury vibrators that have been snuck into our reductions without so much as a whisper, but I'm not letting it slip by unnoticed. I've had my eye on a few of the luxury vibes for some time and now I've found the perfect excuse for treating myself…for once!
Read on to see my lowdown of the biggest luxury toy bargains available now in the Lovehoney Salegasm!
