Recently, my local newspaper published an article that posed a really interesting question: How much is YOUR lingerie worth? They polled over 2,500 women between the ages of 18 and 30 and the results were somewhat surprising.
One mother stated that she can hardly justify spending $54 dollars on a shirt or a pair of shoes but somehow spending that on a bra was okay. I can see that and I completely agree. I see a value in that expense because a bra is so much more important than a shirt. I think the reasons for that are obvious so I won’t tell you all of the reasons why.
Another responder said it was ridiculous to spend that kind of money on something she could buy for a fraction of the cost at a big-box store like Wal-Mart. Yet this same woman stated she bought her career-wear at Saks Fifth Avenue. I think it all boils down to your priorities.
I really thought about where I spend my money and I think it is in shoes, lingerie and well-fitting pants. As far as what I put on my body I think these are essentials. Do you agree?
Lastly, there was one reader who valued her collection at around $9000 and stated that much of it was a gift. Being single, a high-end lingerie collection is in more demand than it may be for others. I would love to sneak a peek into her closet. Too weird? I guess I would love to see what $9000 of lingerie looks like!
Weigh in here. How much do you think your lingerie collection is worth?
