    I want to buy my girlfriend some sexy lingerie - just as a treat, no special occasion.

    I have previously bought her this:

    as well as a couple of chemises.

    I am interested in buying a body - would this be a good idea, she can be quite body conscious, advice greatly appreciated please. thanks

    I'm plus size and can be very self conscious, especially as I'm covered in really bad stretch marks and hate my tummy. I absolutely LOVE bodies! They look amazing on, smooth everything out, give great shape... for me it's instant confidence! I would absolutely say go for it 😃

    If you are talking bodystockings then I would 100% go for it.

    If you are talking body, then be a little careful as sizing can be difficult - I have not yet found a body that fits me, but bodystockings fit me 90% of the time.

    BTW I am also a body conscious plus size.

    Hope you find what you are looking for xxxx

    As the others have mentioned, it's a bit difficult without knowing her size. If she's plus size I can definitely help you more than if she's not. Are there any specific things about her body she's self conscious about? Some body stockings/bodies are better for some areas than others.

    I love the two VioletWolf has posted, beautiful colours!

    Bodies and bodystockings tend to be very flattering. Lovehoney have loads - have a read through the reviews before buying and you'll bet a flavour for the product and which body sizes/types it suits, etc.

    What is the difference between a body and a body stocking? Thanks everyone for your help.

    To be honest a body is quite different to a chemise. If she is body conscious I'd probably stick to the style that has gone down well before.
