I gave Ben the ultimate task this weekend, to find me underwear I actually liked. He's a very good present shopper in general, but the idea of going into a lingerie shop alone isn't something most guys particularly enjoy. So, when Marks and Spencer asked if he'd like to find me the perfect underwear for Christmas I was genuinely intrigued as to how he'd fair...
Rosie for Autograph bra, £25 / Rosie for Autograph knickers, £12.50 / Rosie for Autograph Cardigan, £119
I had no idea what to expect, although I knew he couldn't go far wrong in Marks and Spencers. I gave him the brief of: If Rosie wears it, I'll wear it (and look the same, obviously), I don't like looking too busty so no crazy padding and that it can't have too many lace bits as I think it looks naff. He chose this bra from Rosie's collection and I was pleasantly surprised. Like most men, he hates those nude ones as they look "ugly" so this was his compromise as I wear a lot of white. Better still he knew to buy the matching knickers, and to get a lovely super soft cashmere wrap - because when it comes down to it I live in cardigans. Well. Done. Ben.
If you're worried about what your other half could get you, send him Marks and Spencers way. Ben was convinced it would be full of 'grandma pants' but actually he had a difficult time choosing between about 4 sets... Check out the whole Rosie collection here.
