Why do women wear lingerie?

I started dating this girl and she has loads and loads of sexy lignite, types of never even seen before. It's an everyday wear for her, was wondering do women do this to show men or is it for themselves?

  • Dude, if it was for men, then 99.999% of women would have the decency to get rid of the lingerie they wore for their previous boyfriends.

    I mean, srsly, do you not know how women work? We get rid of ANYTHING associated with old relationships, even if it's associated in some totally stupid-ass completely tangential way.

    So... there's yr answer.
    Even if she happened to have some of that lingerie during her previous relationship (s), she makes NO mental associations between the lingerie and those relationships.
    If she did, she'd have gotten the hell rid of it, already.

    Come on now.

    Yr next assignment is to relax and actually ENJOY yr woman's body, without fretting excessively about her possible ulterior motives for putting stuff on it. <3

  • I think directly they think its for themselves, but indirectly its for other people.

    They say it makes them "feel sexy" but what does it mean to "feel sexy" , why does wearing something like that make them feel sexy? and why is feeling sexy so important?

    Unless they are sexually arroused by themselves, the whole idea of sexiness is that you are considered sexually desirable/stimulating to -other people-.

  • Well thongs are mainly there so that our pantie lines don't show through pants. And bras, so our boobs don't show through our shirts...
    Sexy may be for any partner she comes across, but it also may be for herself just to give her a confidence boost. I feel way better when i'm wearing pretty lingerie under my clothes even if no one is going to see it but myself.

  • When you say lingerie I go to like corsets and sexy outfits. Which doesn't make sense for her to wear everyday wear. So I'm going to guess she has cute bras and thongs which isn't lingerie it's underwear. And if she is wearing corsets and such and she's not a stripper or a hooker than she's wearing it to feel sexy for herself

  • I answered that it's for themselves but it's also a little bit of both.
    When you have sexy underwear, it makes you feel sex and feels good even though no one can see them. It gives a lot of confidence.
    I still answered a little bit of both because when you have a man in your life or want one... it's also for him

  • If it's everyday wear for her, why would you think it was for you? How self-centred.

    • Re-read the question, never said for me. Said for men. As a wide array not me specifically. It's a vague question about women in general.

    • You can mean the general you and not you in particular.

  • why can't we choose both reasons?

  • For themselves...
    Unless it's a special night for the two - then for themselves and for the boyfriend.

  • a little of both? it's kinda like wearing makeup, it makes you feel like you're a smidge nicer looking, (even if no one but you knows you're wearing it) and you feel a little more confident that you look extra hot when you're with you're SO even if the clothes don't stay on for very long.

  • A little bit of both.
    Lingerie is sexy and does make me feel good. But I also love knowing my boyfriend will see it later too and that he'll think it's sexy.

  • A bit of both. Personally, I know that wearing sexy lingere just makes me feel hot, also, I seem to have a promlem with it because I have enough that I could go a month without washing anything.
    Bras are kinda necessary, and thongs are just more comfortable than regular underwear, also, they prevent pantie lines. But the patterns/designes/lace, at least in my opinion, is just to make us feel good.
    Now, that being said, if I know that I'm going to my boyfriend's place then I might choose something alittle nicer to wear, but I still bought ot in the forst place for myself.

  • A lot of women feel sexy when they wear it, it makes them feel good about themselves even if no one is going to see it.

  • I'd say for both. Lingerie isn't only to get a guy in the mood, but to make yourself feel good!

  • Thongs are soooo uncomfortable! I don't like sexy lingerie because it's expensive, gets ruined quickly (not as sturdy) and makes me look fat. I bought some once with a girlfriend, for fun. What a waste of money.
