Im not sure exactly how this goes, so I hope you guys can help enlighten me!
Im doing some lingerie shopping, I picked out about 12 sets. Theyre super cute and sexy but Im not sure if thats enough? How often do you or did you wear lingerie in the very early intimate stages of your lives ? Some girls say to buy over 25 especially since were newly weds.. I just dont understand why lol. Is it really so bad to have so little and expand your lingerie wardrobe slowly through out your marriage?

The correct answer is “none”..

… I never bought any at any point in our relationship. My husband doesn’t really care for it, he prefers a plain white cotton tee shirt only or nothing. I’m not really a let’s play dress up kind of person.

Honestly, only wear it if it makes you feel sexy and you like it!!
I don’t buy lingere really because its not necessarily my husbands thing and it always comes off anyway 😉 There is nothing wrong with wearing nice things though, so the more the merrier 😉

BAHAHAHA…I’m sorry but I find this question hilarious, if only because I can hear my Fiance laughing his butt off in my head at the notion that a woman “should” have a certain number of pieces of lingerie. Then again, we’re heathens and have been living in sin from the onset of our relationship.
It’s 2012 – I don’t think the little lady is expected to have a certain number of pieces of lingerie. Get how ever many pieces of lingerie you want and can afford…frankly, it seems like a bit of a waste of money. Trust me, sexy lingerie doesn’t stay on long enough to warrant spending a lot of money on it. And once you’ve been intimate together for awhile – you won’t feel the need to put it on everytime you have sex. I only pull it out for special occasions now and we’ve been together for 5 years.
Basically, this isn’t a question that anyone else can answer for you – if you like lingerie and can afford it, get it. If not, don’t worry about what anyone else thinks you should have.

It never stayed (stays) on long enough to make it worth while. Fiance says it “gets in the way” lol

Honestly…. I wear it mostly for myself when I want to feel extra sexy. Fiance is good with it, sure, and has bought and made me some…. but when it comes down to it, I think he couldn’t care less whether I wear it or not.

Haha you guys are funny. My Fiance does like lingerie– and I do like them too! But I just dont understand why buying so much at a certain time has to be nessacary ( Atleast in my circle of friends )

I really don’t have a good set, I am trying to put together something as I think my Fiance would appreshiate it. I don’t think I every would spend too much time and money on something that will only stay on for a few minutes though.

My Darling Husband LOVES lingerie so i wear it all the time! We order alot of it from Fredericks online as it is quite flattering for my average body type. I only buy a couple pieces at a time though.

SO and I have been together for almost 6 years now…I break out something lacy and hot every other month or so. I feel like if it’s ALL the time, it’s not “special” anymore, and loses some of it’s oomph. I don’t think you need 25 items, that’s excessive, but maybe start with 5-7 outfits, and order things as you go along. I have found that SO and I like Yandy.com the best-great deals! Sexier than VS…I think they tend to have the same things year after year.

I have maybe 3-4 peices of lingerie. Personally, I think it’s a good idea to start with a small number and grow your collection. That way you find out your husband’s likes and dislikes (for instance, PP have said their husbands don’t like it at all!). Plus it can be a nice pick-me-up to buy cute lingerie and surprise your husband with it.
If you really want a number – I’d say buy enough to last you through your honeymoon. But keep in mind that you probably won’t wear it every night. 10 day honeymoon? Buy 5. etc.

When we started living together I would wear it every once in a while but now I rarely wear nice lingerie. I have like 3 pairs and mostly go to one that is flattering and is kinda saying “lets get it on” without having to do all the work so he gets the hint lol.
You have more sets right now than what I have owned in my 6 year relationship so I think you’re covered. Its nice to spice things up once in a while but there is no right number of how many to own.

Glad starting off with a little bit is not so bad! and like others have saidm, Ill grow my closet out too as time goes by so itll be fun!
Thank you !

I bought/got about 5 for the honeymoon. I think it’s all up to the both of you whenever you feel for something special buy, no generic number beforehand.
