An Important Question for all Americans

ok guys, this has had me curious for a while

What percentage of American women wear Victoria Secret underwear ?

the reason i ask is that honestly over 90% of the pics i have seen on the web (example below) of women showing their undies have Victoria Secret undies on.

I always was under the impression that Victorias Secret was kinda 'upmarket' but i guess not.

So, was that the smallest pic you could find?




Actually I'm kind of curious about women's underwear too. Not curious in that I would ever wear it. Umm....well at least not in public. Shuting up now.

I would bet that most women have some, but don't wear it exclusively.

This sounds like a great on the street survey question. 'Excuse me to you have any underwear on? And can I see it?'

Not "upmarket," perhaps a slightly naughty image.

Perhaps just women who show their undies wear Victoria Secret undies.

It's more expensive than run-of-the-mill underwear, but most girls I know have at least one garment from V.S.. I'd say it's probably around 40% of the population of US women own a VS garment. But if you narrowed it down to an age range of 16-40 it would be a much higher percentage.

it probably varies by region, but in NYC the flagship Victoria's Secret store is always full.

I wouldn't call it upscale - I'd call it right in the middle actually. I usually shop the semi-annual sales cause I'm cheap. I probably have around 40% VS undies.

Every girl I've ever dated has had an ample supply of VS. I'd guess the percentage of women under 40 owning some is probably more like 60-75%, at least in relatively urban areas.

i agree with suziq, it's average in most cases. The flagship store has some really expensive stuff, but there are some small brands from europe that are much better than VS. My wife once took me to the store where diane keaton bought her lingere for the movie unfaithful. I think the cheapest pair of underwear there was around $70.

Boy, after buying all those expensive undies, Keaton must have really been pissed when they gave the part to Diane Lane.

Almost every girl I've dated wore VS. There was one exception, who wore CK and some european brand that I can't remember.

here's a taste...

btw, VS is average in price but very sensual in style...you just can't get it in other stores for the price. it also helps that almost every town has a VS store.

the majority of my undies are VS.

VS is middle of the road--nicer than lots of department store lingerie but not top of the line by any means. It is about the same as stores like Express, Structure, and the Limited. In fact, VS is owned by the same company (Limited Brands) and is seen as the most successful of their chains due to clever marketing of the brand as sophisticated and glamorous.

I have worked at one of these part-time before, and the company really pushes all the other stores to construct an image as successful as that of VS.

That said, probably most of my underwear/lingerie comes from there. Moreso because there's a VS everywhere than because I wouldn't wear any other brand.

while i do have some stuff from VS, it is by far, a tiny tiny majority of my stuff. for me, i go more for comfort than sexy. panties tend to be either bikini briefs (jockey or hanes her way) or g strings (cotton boring ones for vball or regular ones for wearing pants, etc). most of them dont match the bra. bras--tend to go for smooth ones rather than lace so i can wear them under shirts. neutral colors--black, white, tan. i do, however have a few sets of the matching bra and panties stuff from random places, only one set from VS. the majority of the matching sets as well as my naughtier lingerie comes from fredericks of hollywood. i find their prices wayyyyy cheaper than VS and the quality is 10 times better. although VS cotton panties last a long time, their bras have always fallen apart rather quickly for me.

the way i figure it, the guy will hopefully be more focused on the fact that i am half naked rather than the brand of my undies
