Oh great and wonderful GRM Gods please help me.

I have been looking for some sleepwear for my wife for Christmas and I have been striking out. Tell me where to shop.

I want something that looks totally appropriate at first glance but at second glance isn't.

I've tried Victoria's Secret and they are big on Baby Dolls, but that's not what I want.

Fredericks of Hollywood is fine if you want trashy, or at least that's all I've been able to find this year.

I've tried the Department stores and they are frumpy except in their Bridal Departments and then we're back to Fredericks.

Needless Markup (Neiman's) was the closest I found and they had some stretchy material nightie that was more see thru than you thought, but at $149 I think I'll pass.

I'm thinking something with sheer panels in all the right (wrong) places maybe.

When you're not being manly and wrenching on cars where do you go to get in touch with your feminine side?

Most high end women's stores have whole departments of that. Nice Camisoll (sp?) and matching something on the bottom like shorts or sheer long pants?

Go to a Women's store, the clerks are very helpful and impressed that you are man enough to walk into the store which breeds more help.

Seems like and awful lot of money though for something that's gonna be wound up around her head.

Yep-walk into a store, ask for help. When the nice sales lady hands you something, throw it on the floor and see if you like how it looks.

Kohl's carries Vera Wang's line. My wife loved her set.

Be warned though, you will get emails and regular mail for the rest of time from them. But they have good stuff!

I've been to the women's stores, Kohls and the usual places. A baby doll must be considered the height of PC sexy cause that's all I can find. I like baby doll's in the summer, but it's not what I had in mind.

We live countryish. We don't have curtains on the windows so I want something I can get her to wear more often without worrying about the people passing by on the road or the neighbors. The neighbors aren't city close, but eyeball distance close.

If it's as mimimal as the tops on the harem pants then it's not going to be worn until warmer weather heads our direction again.

Real Mini Driver how'd you do that? I'd love to be able to send a link like that sometimes.

So, you want to be able to see your wife's ladybits, but she doesn't want the neighbors to see through the window?

May i suggest some curtains/blinds/drapes? Then it no longer matters what she wears, and everyone gets what they want!

I respectfully submit you're shopping in the wrong department.

I can't make one suggestion without pics. I'm a homosexual on the internet so it's cool.

If I were going to shoot blind. I'd suggest some sort of camisole top and pj bottoms. That or boy shorts.

Like this chick but less NJ influenced.

Am I being trolled into exposing my fem side?!

Makes the most sense to me... Then you can get something as skimpy/whatever as you/she want.

I suggest some good quality curtains and turning up the heat in the house. Then, get her some really sexy socks.

Lesley reminds me: I brought my girl a couple things that she loved from Intimissimi when I was in Barcelona a couple years back - asking for things and explaining sizes in my best (terrible) Spanish. Sometimes it's fun to embrace the awkward. I sort of felt like Hugh Grant, all flustered and stammering.

Anyway, I've recently seen their line in a couple VS stores, tucked away in a corner of its own. Their stuff is quite different (classier) than the usual VS fare, so it might be worth popping in to check it out.

I always like the look that Sienna Miller had in Layer Cake. Of course, that was La Perla, so you are looking at a few hundred dollars to reproduce that exact look.

in case you need visual aides...
