Ladies--do you wear lingerie?

Oh shoot, I meant 'intimate apparel'! Why do you wear it, who do you select it for (you or your partner) and what color(s) do you favor? I just started wearing it again for my boyfriend. Since it's not designed to be underwear with support, I have to find something that I feel makes me feel sexy beforehand...I think I've got 10 (or more!) pieces to choose from, though I often let him make the final call. He tends to choose the same pieces though...

I wear it sometimes, and I usually select it for him. I have all different colors depending on what mood I am in. If I want to make slow sweet love, I'll put on something pastel or pretty. If I am in the mood to get dirtier then I wear blacks or reds. It's fun to see the look on my hubby's face when he sees that I got dressed up for him :)If your boyfriend chooses the same pieces buy more of that style and surprise him with different colors, or model for him...that will make lingerie a lot more fun.

I think it's because he doesn't have imagination (or else he just picks the one that he can get at me easiest!). I have over 10 pieces to chose from...I don't have pastels but that's because it doesn't go with my complexion. I have black and red (black is the color I usually wear anyway); a beautiful new piece in cobalt blue (which I think I'll surprise him with next weekend) and a piece in chainmail (looks uncomfortable but isn't once it warms up!)

I'm not one for frills (in regular life or 'fantasy' life) but I've had my eye on some leather pieces--I wish they were more for women with a 'curvy' figure (big on top, tiny on the bottom). I heard we're coming back with some killer pieces from this trade show, so I can't wait!

i very rarely wear intimate apparel..my husband doesnt allow me to wear underwear very often...but if i do wear something it is because he has told me too...i dont really care one way or another...

That's interesting...I don't think I've ever heard of someone not being ALLOWED to wear underwear. Do you find it less restricting?

I don't use it. I'm confident enough in myself that I know I don't need it. I have so many other things I can do to drive my SO wild. Besides, I've never seen any lingerie that actually looks comfortable to wear.

The only time I wear it is if my hubby asks me...and then it's not even on that long. I don't feel sexy in lingerie and I don't think I ever will. I'm sure it has to do with feeling good about your body...which I don't. Of the pieces of lingerie that I have...I have a really pretty black set, a red one too, and two teddies...one maroon and one like an aqua color.

Why did you pick those pieces? There had to be a reason...remember, sexiness is not a size, it's an ATTITUDE! We're all sexy (heck, I'm sexy even when my belly rolls are showing and I didn't get to the salon for some badly needed landscaping--my man doesn't care!). Wear that black set this evening and give hubby a treat!

LOL! Scorpio...you're so right. My man is a scorp too, and I'm a cancer...we are totally a great pair. He thinks I'm sexy no matter what I'm wearing, and those lingerie pieces were ALL gifts. I've never bought any lingerie for myself. I think my hubby bought the red set now that I think of it...the others were all from bachlorette parties and birthday gifts. LOL! Thank you for responding to me :)

I'm a Scorpio and my man is a Libra...I've tried Leo (3 times) and this is my second Libra (oh darn, what's September 24th? maybe not?) and we're so connected physically it's scary! We've been together over 3 years now, a record for me, but I only got into wearing lingerie for him in the past year. It's fun, lemme tell you!

for my boyfriend of course.as what you mentioned,this thing is not designed to support,why on earth i still wear it beyond the purpose of showing others?well since my bf bought me two pieces of them as presents last christmas,i've got quite addicted to chasing new ones.they really make me feel sexy and naughty.my fav color is black.and i like lace more than cotton.i wonder do you shop for them with ur bf or mates or just urself?i've never done that with my bf considering it would make me feel a bit embarrassed lol.

I tend to pick the pieces I like in my shipments (I'm a Slumber Parties distributor and that is one line of products I love to shop for!) I'd feel embarassed shopping in the stores; the stuff is always too small (I wear D-cups, so it's queen size for just the top). I like lace, but only for lingerie, never for every day--too itchy!

all of my panties, bras are from victoria's secret and i love the lace and frills the g-strings the thongs and don't get me started on my garters & stokings & the more the bra pushes up the more i like it. i have tons and tons of lingerie pieces and the majority of them I bought for myself... even though my bf loves them too. i just like to have on sexy undies on because it makes me feel sexy. i prefer black, pink and red...

I wonder why people wear lingerie???, whay i feel is no one should wear them, if there is a certain specfic reason for it. What i think is one is more comfortable without them, being a man have never worn a underwear, i wonder if ladies are comfortable without lingerie.....

I do not always wear intimate apparel, only on special occasions for my husband. my preferred colour I wear is mauve, I like to remind my husband of the earlier days in our relationship that is why I wear my intimate apparel.

Just two years ago, my parents choose lingerie for me, now i choose it for myself. I think lingerie is neccessary. When i running or climbing, It protects my health and shape.

Of course I wear lingerie, and I choose my own color (usually just beige). I favor comfort before beauty and since I am a regular size, I have no problem buying the brand that suits my taste - St. Michael's.

I didn't use to wear lingerie to bed until I got with my boyfriend now who asked me to, at first it was fun to wear something every night, now I have been buying so many that I have a much larger collection to choose from but I always seem to pick the favorite Victoria Secret's nightgown that is soft and feels good.

I don't wear it very often, I know my husband would love it if I did. I just don't put much effort into it these days...I would rather walk around naked than wrestle with some of the lingerie outfits that I have =) I got a lot for our honey moon and have worn it a few times....I guess maybe I will give my hubby a treat and dress up for him this weekend.

Oooooooo I love lingerie. I love the feel of the silky fabrics, I love the way it makes me feel good. My partner loves to see me wearing some of my outfits, he bought me a gorgeous black and purple velvet corset for Christmas, that one is my favourite

Blimey .. what a question heheh ... I have never quite understood the point of putting underwear on just to have it taken off again .. it never makes me feel sexy at all .. quite the opposite in fact as I find it a real turn off .. And boy is it uncomfortable .. !!
