Video reviews for lingerie: Wear it, or not?

Princess-Kayla ♥ Princess-Kayla ♥
I've seen lingerie videos where the people wear the item, and I've seen them where they choose not to wear it. What do you think is best? I personally don't see the point in doing a video of something like that if you're not going to show how it looks while being worn. I do understand that people can be a little shy too though. So what do you think?

I can totally understand not wanting to wear something skimpy, and I'm guilty of a few lingerie videos where I'm not wearing the item. But the videos are meant to be something that shows what pictures and the written word just can't, and that's how I try to use them. Most of my reviews have pictures of me wearing stuff, so if I'm doing a video on it it's mostly because I need to show you something else and if I put it on it's because it can be difficult to get on if you've never done it before.

Exactly, I would never wear something skimpy and see through on here (not that I do lingerie videos to begin with) I wouldn't mind doing the lingerie review if it covered all my parts.

Some people are just shy, so they will talk about it instead. If that point came when I wanted to do a video I may once I work up the nerves to do it. I have only done two videos and I was nervous as heck and they were nothing to do with lingerie.

This is very true.
And some of the lingerie is see through, so even wearing it with pants or something would still be exposing.
I understand perfectly where you're coming from.

I don't think anyone should have to wear the piece of lingerie. Most of the pieces are sheer, thongs, skimpy, and not really something that most are comfortable showing everyone. I am one that doesn't wear lingerie in videos because the lingerie pieces are not something I am comfortable wearing for all to see. When I include photos I usually have something under them or I use my Blow up doll.

I'm struggling with this right now. I almost rashly asked for a piece of lingerie to do as an assignment (everybody was doing them, and both sizes of my first piece of assigned lingerie had to be returned as neither of them fit, and I didn't do the review.)

It's kind of skimpy and in fact, I was trying to think of a way to cover my nipples, IF I decide to take pics, as the cups are lace.

I'm really going a little nuts about this, as I want to review the piece, and I almost always include pictures in my reviews, but I thought the piece would... cover more when I asked for it.

A blow up doll is a really good idea too! I guess it really depends on what you're comfortable with.

@P'Gell: I hate when lingerie doesn't fit right. But yeah, it makes sense you wouldn't want your nipples exposed to the entire internet.

Pasties under the lace? I have used band aids to cover mine for a couple of pictures, they are flesh toned and did not hurt to remove!!

It would help to see it on certain body types and not just lingerie models or manikins. I don't think reviewers should have to though. wearing leggens, cammis and what not underneath works to.

That's how I feel.

Plus, being honest here, seeing how the lingerie fits someone else's body doesn't help me know any more about it than seeing how the lingerie fits a models body. It sill doesn't tell me how it's going to fit MY body.

I've never understood why so many people feel that posting a picture of themselves wearing the lingerie is helpful. Unless we have the exact same body, it doesn't tell me anything about how it's going to fit me.

I'd rather know stuff like the measurements, what sizes it will fit, how stretchy it is, etc.

I certainly don't judge anyone for posting (or not posting) pictures of themselves wearing the lingerie. I just don't find it helpful personally.

I forgot to mention in some of my pics I had to hide my boobs because the outfit was sheer just imagine trying to do a video review with a outfit like that on. I don't feel like posing through the whole video with my hands covering my chest.

Oh, there's an idea. I also have little "petals" that fit into two of my bras, to help with the "push up" effect and even out the smaller breast. I could use those, or band aids.

Thank you.

Now.... my little cellulite-y legs. What do I do with those?

Good to know. In the past, I've just shown pictures of the lingerie itself. Few people are as short as I am, so the little thing would fit them differently than it fits me.

That is the point of posting the pics. Yes we do the measurements, but as you said everyone has different body types. So I like to show what it looks like on my body, then the next person may have the balls and show what they look like with the piece on.

Either way is fine with me. I totally understand if someone doesn't want to wear them. Some pieces are really skimpy like thongs.

I post pictures of me in it in the review, but don't wear it in the video.

I agree. I'm a bigger girl, so I love when another bigger girl has pictures in the outfit. It helps me see what it may look like on me.

Oh yeah, I definitely know I am in the minority here with not finding those pictures useful. But I'm ok with that.

It seems like the majority of people here on Eden find pictures of the reviewer wearing the garment quite helpful. That's ok, because there are plenty of reviewers willing to post those pictures!

Its helpful to see a normal(non edited) person wearing the item, but I can see not wanting to do it if you are shy, or your partner has an objection to it

I don't think the videos of lingerie are anything more than an easy way for them to create "porn" and earn a gift card or points or however it works with the videos. I do like the tasteful photos in reviews, but when I am the one sharing photos, I make dang sure everything is covered up.

I don't really think the videos are "porn".
I myself am doing video reviews over lingerie when I have the time. It's not just do I can wear lingerie on camera. I haven't decided if I'm going to wear them or not. But everything will be well covered if I do.

I think it depends on what the item is. If its something that is pretty revealing then I would rather they didn't wear it. I don't want to see someone elses boobs/crotch hanging out of it...lol.

I think that its best to try it on though because I am a bigger girl. Not huge, but not skinny either. I see these outfits and they look soooo cute on the models. Get it home and WHOA soooo not for my size!

When I watch the video reviews for lingerie I am hoping to see the person wearing the item to see how a normal person looks in it. On some cookie cutter size 2 individual most items of clothing look good.

I would like to see the person wearing it in the video but,I can understand someone not wanting to wear certain lingerie.

Personally, I don't do videos but if I did, there is no way you would see me in any of the outfits I own. My confidence isn't high enough to do it and anyway, nobody would want to see this 50+ year old body sagging everywhere! I do like looking at them though!
