We recently carried out a survey of hosiery
and lingerie opinions, of both men and women, and thought you might like to look at the results. These results relate to buying and receiving hosiery as gifts.
The results showed that…
85% of men buy to suit their
partners taste and not their own.
·Half the men asked said that
their partner didn’t wear hold ups or stockings as much as they’d like, while
59% of women said that the main reason they do wear beautiful lingerie and
stockings is to give their other half a thrill.
·More than half of the men
surveyed (54%) said that they’d just be too embarrassed to set foot in a
lingerie or hosiery department without their other half.

would happily wear their gifts because they’d be touched that their partner
cared enough to buy them.
·44% of women said their partner
hit the nail on the head when it came to picking out lingerie and hosiery on
their behalf and 32% said they’d still wear them even though it wasn’t
precisely what they’d buy for themselves.
·95% of women said their partner

Women just like nice underwear (so, no shock there then!).
Hosiery and lingerie are a perfect choice for a gift. We all
like to receive that something unexpected and fabulous that we wouldn’t treat
ourselves to, and that makes us feel beautiful, sensual and desired.
Every single item purchased from us is hand wrapped in tissue paper and ribbons, without charge, all as part of the service.
