Why buy lingerie online?

eri86 eri86
I've bought shoes, pants, and shirts online. But I can't wrap my head around buying lingerie. Sure there is a risk with shopping online. Wrong size, wrong product...

But it seems riskier for lingerie, especially sexy lingerie. So why do it at all? I'd rather buy my lingerie in a store where I can try it on, making sure it fits and looks good.

There aren't really many lingerie stores here and the ones that exist are extremely expensive. I have a hard time fitting into most lingerie because of the size of my breasts. I'm used to having to buy bras online, so meh.

That's why a place like Eden is great with user reviews that (hopefully) provide accurate info on sizing. I would not purchase bras here because it would be hard to find a good fit for me (I'm 34F). But other things like corsets and chemises are more forgiving in sizes.

I second this. I now buy all of my lingerie from eden, it was always incredibly awkward for me to go and find lingerie in stores. I'm a pretty shy person, so doing things from the comfort of my own home really helps me feel better about it.

I know my measurements and I use size charts so I rarely order something that doesn't fit right. I read user reviews to see how it fits on someone with close to my measurements. If it doesn't work out, I return it.

I have absolutely zero lingerie stores within a 50+ mile radius of me. I'd have to drive 1.5 hours up north to go to a good store. That's not worth it at all when I can order it off here and have it sent to my house in 3 days.

That is why I like Eden because I can read real reviews from real people. I know my sizes and I can go off that. Also if something does not fit Eden has a wonderful return policy. Usually in stores they don't have the stuff that I want or it is too expensive or it is too cheap it falls apart. I like shopping here on Eden and will continue to give my input.

I'm a 30HH/30J cup, and if I have to buy in a store in Canada or the United States, I'm very limited in my selection, I have to travel far for specialty stores, and I wind up paying upwards of $150 for a simple t-shirt bra. Ordering in from England is cheaper by a long shot, (even if I have to send it back for an exchange), there's far more selection and I don't have to move my tushy from this spot.

I do it because I don't have to go in some shady store with loads of pornography. I like to shop comfortably for lingerie. Also, EF has a very good selection and you don't have to worry about any sales person staring or seeing other types of products that you don't want to be exposed to.

This is true about where I live too, the only real places that have good sexy ones are sex shops and Victoria secrets at the malls.
I'm also a shy person and I almost freaked out waking into a sex shop for the first time and that was really late at night when only one person was in there lol

Another thing about sex shops is that they're ridiculously expensive compared to buying online. It's much cheaper to pick things up from an online retailer.
