According to Shyaway’s #HaveYouDoneIt campaign, 73% of Indian men have never purchased lingerie for women in their lives. Some men think it’s too uncomfortable, and a few others feel there’s no need to know the bra sizes of women. It is the usual norm for a wife to buy underwear for her husband and a mother to buy for her son but not vice versa. In fact, women simply avoid asking for lingerie from men. Be it a father, brother, son, boyfriend, or even husband. Capturing the campaign responses, men have their own embarrassment and are less aware of bra sizing and styles. This social experiment confronts several aspects that are often avoided in social conversation and stereotyped. Despite generation gaps, inequality still exists. Shyaway believes there’s a true need to normalise the process of buying lingerie for both genders. As an initiative, we make it easy for men to buy lingerie for women on our website by providing useful shopping tips and product information.
What Should Men Know About Lingerie?
Before jumping into the actual shopping, here are a few things to note regarding lingerie.
- It doesn’t come in a standard size.
- Bra sizing is a big struggle for a lot of women so using the bra size calculator, size chart, and fitting instruction given by the brand is very essential.
- The bra size of one brand is different from another brand.
- The size specification of a camisole, sports bra, and beginner’s bra is different from that of a regular bra.
- Only knowing the exact size will help.
