Think of the colors they wear, their existing lingerie, and the materials they tend to be more comfortable in. You will likely find their preference there.
Ask them; but with style. For those of you who are looking to surprise your partners consider going through catalogs or listening to their preference when discussing styles they view on popular media. This is a great hint at what they would personally like. Good luck!
