I’m one of those girls who can’t ever get enough lingerie — beautiful, sexy, lacy, racy, cute… it doesn’t matter, I’m all over it. The wedding is giving me ample reason to rush straight to the intimates department every time I shop. But here’s what I don’t understand: why are many women uncomfortable shopping for lingerie, especially with other women?**
I love oohing and ahhing over the stuff with my mother. She’s buying most of my wedding sets, many of which aren’t exactly PG-rated. I wouldn’t feel even the slightest twinge of embarressment about looking at lingerie with my Future Mother-In-Law, fiance, mother, father… am I really alone in this?
**I was raised in an open environment, and am a self-proclaimed Cosmo girl. Maybe that’s why?

I don’t feel weird looking at stuff in front of women in my family, but it will be arkward looking at it infornt of my FH’s family.

I think that shopping for that stuff with my Future Mother-In-Law would be mildly awkward, although we’re both open-minded individuals. I feel even more awkward about shopping for lingerie with my DAD! Just kind of seems like it would scream “Hey dad, guess what? Your little girl is banging some dude!” I mean, my parents aren’t prudes, it just seems a little icky… like I’m putting my sex life right in my dad’s face or something. 🙂
Otherwise, mom, friends, sis, whoever else, I love it too and it doesn’t make me uncomfortable! I think it’s pretty sad that some women elect to miss out on female bonding experiences like this! Shopping for lingerie is fun, and you’re right — an upcoming wedding is an awesome excuse. My sis/MOH is including a lingerie shower in my bachelorette weekend, and I can’t freakin’ wait!

Ahhh a lingerie shower, I’m jealous! I’m sure you’ll get all kinds of pretty things!
Also, I guess I never thought of it as putting my sex life out there for anyone (read: Father) because I don’t consider lingerie accessories solely relating to sex, but to wearing feminine and empowering things that make me feel confident. I just can’t wait to see what else my mother comes up with!

That’s true, and a great way to look at it. But when it comes down to it, I think most people’s minds go straight to the dirty when they see lingerie, and I’d just like to avoid anything in that general arena when it comes to daddy dearest! 😉 And I love that your mom is having fun picking out pretty girly things for you, it’s SO sweet!

Just been on a crazy Aubade spree in Harvey Nics and Harrods – thank god for the sales! Have bough not one but four sets (!) one including suspenderbelt and G-String, the works. Can’t stop – lingery is the best thing ever to make you feel better about yourself.

I love lingerie too, and I don’t find it awkward to shop for with other women (though I probably would with FMIL) EXCEPT for the fact that I’m plus-sized, which for whatever insecure reason makes me not want to go with my size zero friends!
