It may come as a surprise to some, but straight men also wear exotic underwear without the need to be a ‘Chippendale’ and testimony to this is the increasing choice of it in on line designer men’s underwear stores.
Over the past few years the on line sales of men’s underwear has risen sharply and is reported to be one of the fastest growing areas of on line consumerism, even continuing to grow during the global downturn during the economic recession.
Additionally, one area of on line underwear that has continued to expand is in the variety of exotic and risqué designer underwear for men, which many speculate is due to a number of reasons. It seems that traditional bricks and mortar high street shops struggle to sell such daring styles which is thought to be due to the fact that men are either too shy to take a thong to the checkout and prefer the anonymity of shopping on line.
Giggleberries on line retailer report that, “the more exotic the underwear, the better it seems to sell and we have been surprised and what people what, both men buying for themselves and women buying for partners”.
Some might argue that it is just not right that men want to wear thongs and sheer mesh fabrics, but why not? Many would argue that there should be no reason why men should not enjoy the same kind of choice in their underwear that women have in lingerie; after all, we are witnessing a surge in demand for other things, such as face care products that were previously the reserve of women.
