Women Feel Better When Wearing Sexy Underwear

ShopSmart magazine is reporting that women feel more confident and sexy when they wear a special pair of underwear. However, a bad pair of underwear can have the complete opposite effect. The survey was conducted by telephone and featured 1,000 women over the age 0f 18, and 47 percent said their underwear had a huge effect on their confidence. Other interesting findings from the study: women own an average of 21 pairs, with 10 percent owning 35 or more; women tend to prefer briefs …

… in neutral colors such as black, white and beige; women between the ages of 18-34 tend to wear more adventurous styles.

So what does it all mean? Well, it doesn’t seem to tell us much we didn’t already know.  (Wait, women like to feel sexy? What?) Most people tend to feel more confident when they know they have put a lot of work into their appearance. While it may not be underwear with men, you certainly wouldn’t walk into a job interview wearing gym shorts and feel good about it. What the study does point to is that the commodification of sex is a very real thing; Victoria’s Secret isn’t a billion dollar company for nothing. It might not be wise to draw too many conclusions from this (I’m an academic, so I can’t help it), but it speaks to the fact that many women likely feel that society values them primarily for their physical attractiveness. Indeed, this is largely true. I mean, can you imagine there being a men’s lingerie industry?

  1. I’m surprised anyone completed the survey. Usually when someone calls me on the phone and starts asking how I feel when I’m wearing sexy panties, I hang up.

  2. It depends on what it is. I feel better if I am wearing *good* underwear – because they don’t bunch, don’t move, and do what they are supposed to do. I don’t see a special charge in *sexy* underwear – though I suppose the definition of that might change person-to-person as well.
    The underpants in the photo go up too high and down not near low enough. that would be highly uncomfortable and not beneficial to feeling great. Perhaps it would be more comfortable on her butt, but I maintain reservations.
    Did you steal that photo off the internet or something? Normally photos you have permission to use don’t have watermarks in the middle…

  3. I only own a couple of pairs of sexy underwear. If I wear them, it’s because I’m planning to seduce my husband when he gets home (or when we go out teehee). Thus the very act of wearing the sexy underwear tends to get me turned on. Hooray for conditioning!
