Men are terrified of getting lingerie choices wrongPosted on: December 4, 2013 17:45:52
With Christmas just a matter of weeks away, many men will be starting to think about what to get that special someone. However, it appears that spending their cash on sexy lingerie for their lady won't be at the top of the list.
Research has found that men will only spend half of what women will happily shell out on themselves when it comes to buying lingerie.
Women are obviously wanting to spice up the cold winter nights with some sexy underwear as they will, on average, spend £47 on a new set. However, men will only spend £24 to kit their lady out in something slinky.
According to the survey, the reason they aren't splashing the cash in this department is because they are worried about making the wrong choice, not because they are tight with their wallets.
Women are obviously more confident about their retail choices so are willing to spend more on the item, reports the Mail Online. Unsurprisingly, females spend a total of £15,000 on lingerie in their lifetime with 13 new knickers bought every year as they help support an industry that generates £1.5 billion every year.
Females from Carlisle spent the most on sexy underwear, followed by London, Guildford, Liverpool and Edinburgh. Men in Cardiff would pay the most for lingerie, followed by Sheffield, Manchester, London and Chelmsford.
According to the news provider, classic black suspenders and stockings were the most popular thing for both sexes to buy this Christmas, while black or pink briefs, a sheer black teddy, a red satin body bow and basque, finished off the top five.
A spokesperson for Bluebella, who commissioned the survey, told the Mail Online: "Men tend to impulse buy when it comes to underwear and go for the first sexy slip they see. They're probably unsure if their partner will like their choice so they prefer to spend less. If he gets it wrong, it can put him off buying lingerie for a while but it doesn't have to be this way.
"If he gets it right, it is the gift that keeps on giving."
