Who Buys Sexy Lingerie?

    I'm curious--who actually buys sexy lingerie?

    I consider purchasing sexy lingerie sometimes, but then I remember that my husband doesn't care for it, so what's the point? I don't need it to feel sexy. A present is still a present with or without wrapping paper. It's not comfortable to wear under clothing for me, so I'll pass. I own some sexy underwear to wear on nights out or for special occasions, and that's really enough. It doesn't help that the bigger your breasts get, the less sexy the bras get, and the sexy, lacy bras they do sell aren't really supportive enough or practical for everyday wear. But I often wonder--who buys all the babydolls on display at Victoria's Secret? Who buys all the lingerie on display at everyday places like Macy's and Nordstrom?

    Do you buy sexy lingerie, for yourself or someone else?

    My wife buys it all the time. She buys her every day stuff from places like VS and her teddies, corsets etc from places like wicked temptations. I gave up buying it for her because she doesn't wear what I buy so there's no point in spending even more cash on it. Does she wear it as much as I'd like her to? Obviously not, but I'm not complaining that the drawers full of options aren't available either. ;)

    I suppose part of it is that we don't have the disposable income to spend on something that's just going to sit in a drawer. Also, if my husband were to buy me "lingerie," he'd probably buy me Patagonia Capilene longjohns. He's a romantic guy. :rolleyes:

    Guilty, as well; though she preferred a Marmot mid-weight.

    I have found that only certain women can pull off extravagant lingerie (corsets, merry widows, gartered stockings, etc). Most are actually best served by other kinds of sexy looks; though sexy underwear (silk or lace bras) almost always is a winner.

    I have a box of things tucked way high up in my closet. But most of it is garter belts and stockings. I'm really not a fan of either lacy bras or underwear or anything else of the boudoir variety. Solid color hipsters in a cotton or cotton blend that is really stretchy, that's all I have in regular rotation. All through growing up Mom preached to my sister and me about only wearing cotton underwear. And she was right. The jay-jay's gotta breathe so its flora stays happy and in balance. Namaste.

    Personally, I've always thought lingerie to be a bit superfluous. There is none in my home, that I'm aware of.

    Many years ago I bought my wife some lingerie. Turns out she prefers flowers and diamonds.

    Rawr.

    This confirms my secret suspicion that gentlemen do buy it for themselves...

    This is my wife's point of view. Not that I am wearing the lingerie but that her wearing lingerie is really a gift for me. So, if I want to buy her presents, I should buy her presents.

    Who cares, really?
    I wouldn't mind if my old lady bought some- but that would normally result in sexual arousal, and she ain't havin' none of that. The more she covers up at night, the better off she feels.

    Eventually it might come to this:

    "Why don't you wear what I bought you?"
    That is one issue that comes up occasionally, the items don't fit when I don't make the purchases myself. I honestly would prefer a gift card accompanied with photos of an assortment of his personal preferences so I can order accordingly.

    Issue #2
    "You have all of these sexy things in your drawers and I never see them?"
    Well that happens when you are in just too much of a hurry to take actually look. In my experience most guys need to be tied to a chair and forced to actually see them anyway. Lingerie finds its way to the floor far too soon to be noticed.

    I still buy them. Some items are still comfortable enough to toss on and lounge around a bit. I know my SO does enjoy them in theory, he is generally too excited to pay much attention.

    I used to have all kinds of things when I was younger...corsets, garters, and lacy, frilly, see-through things. I seem to date very practical, no-nonsense-please men, though, and every one in recent memory would tell me it looked pretty, but there was no point in spending so much on something I'd wear for about ten seconds. I tossed most of my fancy lingerie when I realized I was just as alluring (and much more comfortable) in a good bra and boy shorts.

    This. A fit attractive woman (or man, for that matter) will be attractive without added flim-flam. No amount of lingerie is going to make a size sixteen as attractive and desirable as a size six. Fancy wheels, graphics, and tinted windows are not going to turn a Dodge Caravan into a Porsche Panamera.
    Guffaw!:eek:
    My experience exactly. All a frilly bra does is hide my stiff nipples. My guy -- an archetypal practical, no nonsense man, a professor, but basically a Swedish farm boy, still, at age 46) thinks the sexiest thing is a snug (not skin tight) tee shirt and cotton hipsters. And he loves scrubs with a zipper down the front, or to discover that, under the dress I wore to church, I'm wearing no panties.:) Slightly naughty is sexy to him. Dressing like a whore is not.

    This thread seriously needs to have an offshoot in Exhibition.

    Lingerie can sometimes be superfluous, but certainly not always. It really depends on what the plan is. If it's just sexy time at home, it's probably not worth the effort. But if there's a night out or something interesting going on - in other words, more than just sex - then I think that lingerie has a place. Further to Lindy 's point, sometimes just knowing it's there underneath is enough, just like knowing that there's nothing underneath accomplishes the same thing.

    That said, the women that I've known (in the Biblical sense) that own and wear lingerie tended to do it as much for themselves as me. I enjoy a good corset quite a bit, but I know enough not to pout if someone doesn't want to wear it.

    ha...I was actually going to mention, the only time I look at lingerie now is if I'm considering an Exhibition post.

    It could be titled "The excuse to wear your sexy lingerie thread".
