Do Tell: Do You Pick Your Lingerie for Him?

Building a lingerie wardrobe
takes a lot of time and dedication, but it sure is fun to collect! Whether you like risque bras and panties or prefer the essentials (seamless t- shirt bras and everyday undies), ladies, do tell: Do you purchase your lingerie to please your man or to please yourself? Do you shop for comfort and practicality or for a way to turn up the heat in the bedroom?

I love wearing sexy lingerie for my man. . .in the summer. But we had our first snow of the year 3 days ago, and it gets COLD in our house at night! So that kind of destroys any ideas of sexy lingerie until about April- my ice cold toes turn him off :( So we play "snowfort" underneath the blankets :P

I collect both comfy lingerie and sexy lingerie, about 50-50%. There's days where I want to be a sex kitten and days where I just want to lounge around and read a magazine.

my partner couldn't care less about i collect sexy things just for me. i just don't feel much like a girl if i'm not wearing something sexy underneath!

Both. My boyfriend loves the boyshort/tank top look. Luckily for me, that is the most comfortable combo. Besides, if it's all coming off any way, what does it matter what undergarments you're wearing? I'm prepared whether we just end up going to sleep or staying up for a while....

Does any guy really care that much though? Sometimes it seems like he is equally excited if I'm wearing sweats and a t-shirt. I could probably wear a garbage bag and he'd be happy if he knew he was going to get some. Are we fooling ourselves thinking they even notice the difference?

If I buy it, which is next to never, I get what flatters my body. I think buying that stuff is a waste of money b/c you only wear it for 5 minutes and then you take it off. What's the point?

He takes me lingerie shopping from time to time, and it's fun, but really, I don't have frumpy lingerie.

I buy for me and for my pleasure. I don't like the mere thought of making things about someone else. It's my body after all. Hell, if he likes the underwear so much he can buy it and wear it himself.:D

mostly him. if it were up to me..i would wear pajama pants and a tank top to bed every night. but i know my boy likes it so i will throw in a cute nightie here or there i just think that sometimes lingerie is too expensive for how short you wear it for. i mean sexy lil outfit..thigh highs..the works..all to be ripped off you in like 10 mins :-P

My boyfriend likes boyshorts but what does it matter? They're on the floor in seconds anyway. I would NEVER spend more than £10 on a bra or pair of knickers, £20 total. He wears boxers that he's had for 5 years AT LEAST so why should I bother? He's outrightly said he does not care about lingerie so thats all I need for incentive not to buy it!

when he likes something i'm in i go out and get more like it. keeping him turned on is high priority for me

Both! If I see something that I like then I will buy it even if I think he won't like it.

both-when i'm out during the day i'm active and i dont need anything scratching, ripping, riding up etc...generally i just like comfortable clothes. occassionally i'll pick out super nice stuff as a surprise and then i know i wont be leaving the house that evening :)

Well all the Lingerie I own was bought before I had a boyfriend... I just buy them b/c they make ME feel sexy.... and I don't wear my best stuff all the time around my guy... He gets to see me in my granny panties... but when I do pull out my best lacy and barely there lingerie I get a great response from him....

No, I pick cute things that I like because guys don't even notice. They just want it off, haha.

I would like to take my bf lingerie shopping with me some time so that I could get his opinion on what he liked. I've picked stuff that I thought I looked good in and figured might turn him on. As for regular undies and whatever, I'm obsessed with Victoria's Secret cotton low-rise briefs, so I always just go with those. My bf has told me he likes them, so I guess simple is good, too!

I'm 50/50 as well. What If you break up and have all of this lingerie that you don't like but he did.... Then it's kind of a waste =] I'm always thinking about the future.

I'm 50/50 on this one. Between myself and him there's no better way to settle it. 50/50 seems about right.

Little bit of both. I have some really comfy stuff that I wear when I'm sick or in a bad mood, but most of my stuff is sexy or playful. I feel good wearing it, and my boyfriend appreciates it. The stuff I buy specifically for him is the really unpractical, only made to be taken off stuff.

i buy it for myself: when i pick out things I know i'll like, i feel better in them, and that's the time i am sexiest (i think... and my guy doesn't mind!) i just feel awkward in underwear that's too fancy.

I wear sexy stuff all the time. Its for me, and he appreciates that I wear things like that as well. My daily stuff is lacy and sexy. The lingerie I buy for *him* - totally not functional and only built to be ripped off. He loves it. Everytime Im out shopping and see something, I pick it up. I like to build my collection

I like to put on my sexy stuff when I'm cooking dinner! So he comes home and sees me, but he can't do a thing about it until I'm finished haha! Or else it will have to be a quick bang on the kitcehn counter ;)

I have two drawers. One is for the highly functional beige stuff that I wear to work, the other is for the fun stuff that goes on after work is over and before he gets home.
