You will take this poll, and you'll like it.

I included a poll in the sidebar. A poster, loyal reader and good friend, inspired it.

Why am I asking this question? Well I'm not completely sure I like it myself. I mean is can be pretty, but in "practice" it doesn't come in handy, so to speak. It just (dramatic pause) gets in the way.


Makes for great pictures.
Exciting to shop for.


You can ruin it.
It gets in the way.
If you don't look good in lingerie, you look REALLY BAD in lingerie.

Is it the time-period that makes the difference? Or is the the individual? Has the era of the late 30's hair spray and stilettos been replaced with early 30's scrunchy and sneakers?

On the right person (one's spouse of course) I think pajamas can be just as exciting, or more so then tangle-y, rough lace.

What do y'all think? Support your vote with some justification.

Update: This poll ran from 8-27-08 to 9-3-08. Here are the final results.

I wonder if you will get many comments on this one. Probably only votes :)

I like it, but it's so expensive!
Doesn't stop me from buying them though!

Yeah I don't really expect many comments. People don't really like to admit to such personal information.

At least we will get some votes in there.

I wonder if any one will actually pick the second one. :)

I think lingerie can rock if the person selects something that they look good in, not just what looked good on the model in the catalog or the mannequin at the store.

HektikLyfe said...

Great point. A maid outfit for example wouldn't look nice on just anyone.

If you can pull it off (pun intended) then Lingerie is a big YES for me.

If you were my spouse or significant other of course.

I took the poll ... and I liked it.

The lingerie - eh, I could go either way. Sometimes its cool, other times its a hassle and just gets in the way. Husbands seem to like it though, and I guess there's something to be said for that. Got to keep the audience happy!


HektikLyfe said...

Hmm. That's a different answer than I was expecting. I was under the impression that women mostly like it for themselves to feel pretty.

Now we have one that could do without it. Is it a matter of confidence I wonder?

HektikLyfe said...

Ok, who said they liked it on their husband??? XD

Sarah Jane said...

I have to complain that there wasn't an appropriate answer for me personally on the survey. My real answer is yes, I like lingerie and I own some but I don't think any of it looks good on me. And if lingerie doesn't look good, it's doing nothing for me. So, I guess I like it and WISH that it looked good on me.

HektikLyfe said...

Yeah the poll limits your selections to 4. Sorry about that but I did think of a few others that I thought would be funny. In the end I went with the ones that would I thought would be most popular. Even though it isn't exactly what you would answer, your closest response would be that you don't like it because you don't think it looks good on you.

I would've liked to add things like "I don't like the way I look in them but my husband does." or "I would only wear it if my husband wore a furry suit with a strap-on." and so on.

Sarah Jane said...

You know, I don't think any husband would have a problem with seeing his wife in lingerie, even if she was 250lbs.

HektikLyfe said...

You would be surprised how many jerks there are in the world. I don't think any GOOD husband would have a problem with it, or tell their wives if they did.

Those "crusher" guys I just don't understand though. (There was a recent episode on Tyra that I accidentally caught a glimpse of.)

Two people like it on their husband LOL!
