Lingerie is so famous because love is not as blind as we have been taught it to be. Our country has seen a tremendous boost in lingerie shopping in the last decade or so. This is because of increase in awareness and sensuality in women. It comes as no surprise that men too have followed suit and adopted the tradition of wanting to look nice for their partners. From fairness creams to thongs, men have also come a long way in accepting what is the bare truth, that is, sex is fun and lingerie makes it better! Some taboos are of course still not broken. The Indian culture is such that even though we have opened up to accepting sexuality as a part of life, it is not discussed freely everywhere. In such a scenario, what is the best way to shop for merchandize relating to the activity? You guessed it right, online!
Everything from a pin to a plane is now online and can be purchased with ease, so why should lingerie be any different. You don’t need the unnecessary stares from strangers when walking into a lingerie store. Neither is anybody comfortable answering the questions that the sales staff at lingerie stores sometimes have. The good news is that browsing and buying of lingerie in the current environment is easiest done online. For the still – skeptical people, here is a list of things to consider when shopping for lingerie:
- Variety – Online stores are usually good at offering many genres and styles of lingerie to suit the need of every person. A quick way to assess and compare two sites on the variety of stock they hold is to check the number of pages they offer (usually different styles are clubbed together, like transparent nightgowns will be on one page and bra panty sets on another). Another god way to assess a site is its user friendly navigation through the various pages.
- Pricing – This is a common shopping cue. Look out for sites that offer unreasonable sales and discounts. When buying lingerie, quality is key. Of course you want everything to fit into a budget but underwear requires some special attention. And you would be right to doubt a site that offers a bra at dirt prices. Remember, you deserve premium and that comes at price.
- Refunds and returns – Online sites are famous for providing return policies. When shopping online you should consider the size and colour options well. But if a mistake has been made then the online store should be flexible enough to give you an exchange or a refund. Go with sites that understands this and provides you with easy return and refund policies.
- Delivery system – Check what delivery options are provided to deliver your sexy nothings to you. Lingerie delivery is best kept discreet and hence this becomes an important point to consider when buying lingerie online. A pack that comes with all sorts of advertisements of lingerie may get hard to swallow after all!
