Is it sexy or creepy when a dude buys lingerie for a woman?

A few weeks ago, I was shopping with my best friend and walked into La Senza to check out their sale. As I do every time La Senza has a sale, I was browsing through the A cup bin. (Unfortunately I’ve been cursed with Asian breasts, so I’ve never outgrown an A cup… sadly.)

As I was looking through a pile of discounted bras all tangled together in a bin, a man in his late 40s walked toward me. He looked like a “gangsta” who didn’t get the memo that after high school you don’t need to be a blood or a crip to be cool. He was wearing baggy jeans hanging halfway down his ass and a bomber jacket with a Bluetooth sticking out of his ear. I don’t know why, but guys who wear their Bluetooth for “style” always look douchey to me.

Anyway, here’s the conversation I had with this 40-year-old hoodlum.

Man: Are these on sale? (Pointing at the bra bins)

Me: Yeah, they’re $9.99. (Pointing at the giant sale sign dangling over the bins that read “bras $9.99″)

Man: Alright. What about these? These on sale too? (Pointing at the underwear section)

Me: Yeah, those are $1.99 each (Again, pointing at the sale sign above those bins)

Man: Cool, that’s cheap right?

Me: Yes.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m used to rummaging through bra bins with other bargain hunters, but they’re usually 12-year-old girls vying for the same A cup bras I’m trying to buy. There’s something about rummaging through bras with a 40-year-old, shaddy-looking rapper reject that just didn’t feel right.

So I walked away and found my best friend at the other side of the store.

I decided to look for underwear first and go back to bra shopping when he was done. I found a couple of pairs that I liked, and wanted to find matching bras for them. But he was still there. I didn’t want to wait any longer so I said, “screw it, I’m going back to continue shopping for bras.”

Now the dude was talking to the sales lady.

Sales Lady: What style are you looking for, sir?

Man: Somethin’ sexy… somethin’ with that lace shit.

Sales Lady: Okay, how about this? (Showing him a black lace bra)

Man: Nah, black is boring. I like somethin’ with more colour.

Sales Lady: How about this? (Holding up a purple bra)

Man: Yeah, that’s good. That’s good.

At this point, he had about 4 or 5 bras in his hands ranging from red, pink, turquoise and now purple – all with lace.

I wasn’t there 30 second before I walked back to my best friend and said, “Yeah, there’s no way I can be comfortable with shopping beside him.”

In the end, I bought 4 pairs of underwear and zero bras. He, on the other hand, left the store with about 5 or 6 bras.

Back to my question: Is it sexy or creepy when a dude buys lingerie for a woman?

I guess it depends on the dude.

In this case, it was creepy. But I suppose it would be less creepy if a husband and wife were shopping for lingerie together. Or perhaps a dude shopping alone wouldn’t be so creepy if he just bought 1 piece of lingerie… not 6. And not all bras from the $9.99 bin.

Ladies, I want to hear from you. Has a man ever bought lingerie for you?

Sexy or creepy? What do you think?

    Great wash bag for MY bras. I have had 2 that have lasted seaevrl years before the zipper pulls finally broke off. They still work, but I have to use a paper clip to open and close the zipper. Not impossible, just a big pain. So, I bought 2 new ones. The cylindrical bag has 2 openings with a separator in the center so your bras won’t tangle with the agitation from the washer. You can use for bras or anything delicate (I wash my shoe laces, wool beanie caps, gloves and some panties in them). I don’t normally have padded bras so they work fine with the wash and spin. I do have a couple of padded bras and because the bag is collapsable the bras developed creases in the padding from the spin cycle (I knew this but I was being lazy about hand washing). So, if you love your padded bras, I would not suggest this item. Otherwise, I’ll keep buying them when mine fall apart.
