If your husband or special someone is a lingerie lover, have you ever wondered why they love you in lingerie? Have you fought hard to smile every time another slinky negligee, teddy, or sexy corset is wrapped up as a present? The truth behind that silky garment is more than meets the eye! We love what meets the eye, but it is the messages that lingerie is communicating that gets our attention. So why do men love women in lingerie?
If it were up to the men, your underwear drawer would be overflowing with lace, frills, and garter belts. In a pretty unsurprising survey, U.K. lingerie company Bluebella found that men prefer lingerie that’s bright, fun, and barely there, while women prefer comfortable and practical picks, reports The Daily Mail.
Well, yeah, that makes sense. So it’s no wonder that a whopping 84 percent of women say they have special sets of sex lingerie, according to the survey. You know the kind—they make you feel like vixen, highlight all your best assets, but are totally impractical for everyday wear. In fact, 89 percent of the women surveyed said that these special sets make them more sexually confident.
The survey identified all sorts of things men say they love about lingerie—like red material, lace, cut-outs, sequins, and bows. But let’s be honest, most guys aren’t incredibly well versed in women’s underwear, so just go with whatever you feel best in. If you’re in the market for a sexy new get-up, check out the best types of lingerie for your shape and the best bras for your set.
So why do men love women’s lingerie?
Some guys don’t see the point in paying hundreds of dollars for something that is going to come off in approximately 30 seconds, but others appreciate every thread on a woman’s body. Lingerie need not be an acquired taste.
1. Men Love the Availability
Lingerie says, “Yes”, one word that we love to hear. Not only does it say yes, but it communicates a very strong and sensual yes and excited to be with you yes. These are absolutely wonderful words for all special someone’s regardless how frequent the sexual intimacy is. For couples who have less frequent intimacy, lingerie takes out the guesswork, wondering and trying, that sometimes challenge men to be Romeo and Sherlock Holmes at the same time. When you slip on “something more comfortable” we love the strong and resounding yes we hear.

2. Men Love Looking
Lingerie says, “Please look” two words that every guy loves to hear from his special someone. Ladies your guys love your body and he loves looking at it. While an “in the dark, under the covers romp” is sometimes fun, lingerie is all about looking! They love it! They want to step back and soak in all the beauty that is radiating off of you! They want to let our eyes dance over those sexy curves and just enjoy the view. Lingerie not only allows them to do that but asks them to, and they love it!
3. Men Love the Buildup
Lingerie says “let’s take our time tonight.” Has your regular sexual intimacy become closer to a quickie over the years? Even when we slow things down sometimes they can still go pretty quickly. Lingerie is a great way to let us slow things down, enjoy the view and slowly unwrap the evening.
4. Men Love Excitement
Lingerie says “I’m excited to be with you tonight.” Behind every man’s desire for sex is an equally strong desire for his wife’s pleasure. They really want you to feel good. Making you feel good makes them feel great! When you put on lingerie you are in essence showing him you are sexually desiring him, which is a huge way to boost your special someone’s self-esteem and show him you desire him!
5. Men Love the Gift
Lingerie says, “I’m yours.” They know that you aren’t dressing up like that for anyone other than them and that you are doing it simply for their enjoyment. That is a huge turn on. Knowing that you have thought about what they’d like and then you not only bought it, but made time to wear it is a huge gift. They know that you are subconscious, they know that you might not love all the same curves that we do, and they know that you are making yourself vulnerable all for them. It is a huge and awesome gift! It makes them feel very special and is one of the biggest reasons why they love it!
6. Men Love the Wow
Lingerie says, “Wow!” One of the exciting things about lingerie is the potential wow factor. When they least expect it you can surprise them with a wow! Seeing you in lingerie when it was totally unexpected has the ability to make their eyes pop like Bugs Bunny! It is exciting, alluring, enticing and awesome!
Next time your special someone smiles at the lingerie drawer or hints at how nice it would be to see you in something slinky try not to roll your eyes. Consider all of the amazing things you can say all with one sexy piece of lingerie.
Before you sigh and think about dusting off some antique you got from your grandmother at your bridal shower you might want to consider finding something new. There are many different types and styles that can flatter and excite anew!
