Fun Lingerie Facts: Survey Results and Saucy Comments

Fun Lingerie Facts You Wish You Knew Earlier

After conducting an anonymous survey of our lingerie-loving Facebook followers, we were able to get a better understanding on your thoughts and choices around romantic, sexy gifts. There were no right or wrong answers, but there were many fun lingerie facts we came across . . . so we thought why not share our results with you. We hope you find these fun lingerie facts to be as enlightening as we did!

Fun Lingerie Fact #1: Receiving Lingerie Is Always Memorable

fun lingerie facts about women receiving lingerie This one is for all the men out there. You should know that 95% of women associate receiving lingerie from their partner with a positive experience. If that’s not a hint then we don’t know what is! As one woman put it, “My husband knows me well. He knows I like to have different things and that’s why he bought me my first subscription.

 

 

 

Fun Lingerie Fact #2: Women Are Deprived Of Lingerie

fun lingerie facts about women

Here’s another one for the boys. 45% of women – that’s a big number – have NOT received lingerie from their partner but would like to. It broke our hearts when we found out that almost half of women have gone through relationships without ever receiving a pair of sexy, saucy knickers. Men, you need to show her that she is still the most beautiful woman in the world and trust us, lingerie will do that for you.

Fun Lingerie Fact #3: Giving Lingerie Is Challenging

girlfriend loved present choices customer service

 

And yes, as one man put it, we know choosing lingerie can be hard: “One time she liked what I chose and the next time she did not.” That’s why we’re here for you! As women, leave it up to the lingerie experts to hand pick a special pair for the woman in your life.

Fun Lingerie Fact #4: Lingerie Keeps The Romance Alive

women lingerie giftRead some of the comments below and come to understand how giving lingerie does great things for one’s relationship:

  • “The best value, and it is a gift that keeps on giving! There should be an option for a lifetime subscription . . . “
  • “It adds an extra thrill to the bedroom and coming home from work undressing each other.”
  • “Just the foreplay that these products have is amazing.”
  • “This service is so easily accessed and fun for all involved.”
  • “It’s the best deal and I like surprising my wife every month.”

Fun Lingerie Fact #5: Quality Lingerie Is Not Cheap

But, as some of our responders noticed, Enclosed is high end, luxury and therefore expensive. 38% of people found us to be too expensive. Some insisted on “buying a gift that is more within my budget” while one responded with the reasoning “gotta start making money with my new job first.”

Fun Lingerie Fact #6: It Improves Your Bedroom Situation

red teddy thong lingerie giftNot surprisingly, the number one reason people would purchase this gift would be as a sexy gift for a significant other, which comes in at 63%. Second, at 56% they would buy lingerie as a “gift for us,” and the third reason at 52% as a romantic gift for a significant other. Clearly, this gift hints towards sensual, intimate and romantic.

Fun Lingerie Facts #7: It Is Not For Everyone

Nevertheless, there are still 5% of women who have NOT received lingerie from their partner and would NOT like it. I guess we can’t please everyone. Hopefully your woman is not part of that tiny percentage.

Fun Lingerie Fact #8: San Francisco Women Are Kinky

fun lingerie facts san francisco women kinky

When just looking at women in the San Francisco area, a whopping 96% have shopped at Victoria’s Secret – not a shock there. But, interestingly enough 58% of women have purchased something from Good Vibrations or other sex stores. Hmmmm . . . does this say something about women from the Bay Area or just women in general?

Fun Lingerie Fact #9: Women give Other Women Lingerie As Well

Here are the top three occasions women would gift lingerie: first, for a bachelorette party, second to treat themselves, and third as a “gift for us” (them and their significant other).

 

 

 

 

 

The Fun Of Giving Lingerie

easy-sexy-present-delighted-customerIn conclusion, what we have found is that lingerie is a gift that almost everyone can enjoy. (But not everyone. Think mother-in-law!) Lingerie works wonderfully for those that gift it to their significant other, but we have also found that knowing what kinds of lingerie to gift can be quite tricky. If you don’t know what to give her, or would like a lingerie expert’s input, trust the Knicker Ladies to help you. (Read some customer testimonials here . . . )

Adore Me vs. Enclosed Lingerie

How Adore Me Quality vs. [Enclosed] Lingerie Compares, And Why You Should Care

High end kimono lingerie

 

One of the most frequent questions we get about our business is, what differentiates us from Adore Me? There are several answers, but the main answer comes down to Adore Me quality. While Adore Me offers affordable lingerie to the mass market, [Enclosed] is all about delivering an intimate surprise gift of ultra-luxe and high-end lingerie. Here are our thoughts on Adore Me’s quality:

The ANTI AdoreMe

At [ENCLOSED], it is our goal to be the ANTI AdoreMe. We want to be nothing like them (except super successful). One way we differentiate is on customer service. We offer personal, concierge attention. No auto login to update your account. We do it all for you. We literally used AdoreMe as a model of what not to do when developing our customer service, renewals and returns policies. For instance, to cancel any monthly subscription with us you just A. call us B. email us. No questions asked, no complex login. We personally take care of canceling (or pausing) your subscription.

 

Adore Me Quality And Pricing

Adore Me customer service Review BBB

 

We differentiate on quality. Enclosed is literally a different world of product. AdoreMe is explicitly an alternative to Victoria’s Secret. We are an alternative to flowers or jewelry.While their prices are inexpensive, it all comes back to the idea of “you get what you pay for.” Their mesh and lace isn’t terrible (we’ve worn worse), but they aren’t remarkable either—their quality is on par or lower than Victoria’s Secret. When we’ve tried their products, the material is flimsy and frequently falls apart. We have found them to be inexpensive enough that you’ll get your money’s worth after only a few wears.

[Enclosed] Quality And Pricing

High end lace panties

 

At the end of the day, there’s nothing outstanding about Adore Me’s products. It is harder to get high quality at such a lower price point, so Adore Me aims for affordability and tries to please everyone. However at [Enclosed], we focus on the higher-end and luxury segment of the market. Our knickers are made of real silk and satin, the finest leaver’s lace, hand embroidered elements and designed with uncompromising attention to detail.

Adore Me Quality Lacks Designer Truth

Enclosed Lingerie Slip

 

Adore Me pitches itself as a place to get “designer lingerie” for less money. In our experience, the quality of Adore Me’s lingerie has not been deserving of the title “designer lingerie.” The company should not continue using buzzwords that imply high-end, expensive, luxury lingerie if what they are selling does not match the higher standard all other lingerie brands are held to. Adore Me can and should sell the same types of products other mass market lingerie brands do, just don’t call it designer lingerie.

[Enclosed] Promise To Deliver Designer Quality

best gift lingerie testimonial

At [Enclosed], we pride ourselves in finding the highest quality designer knickers from around the world. As concierge lingerie experts, we categorize designer lingerie to be made with care and attention to detail, using quality fabrics of the finest lace, real silk and other materials selected for beauty and comfort. With [ENCLOSED] you can give a taste of luxe by presenting gorgeous panties sourced from the finest manufactures in France, Italy, the UK and a few select other locales. We acknowledge our products are expensive and our service is not cheap to deliver, and understand our services are not a fit for everyone, but we remain unapologetically sexy, romantic and yes, expensive.

Adore Me Quality: Lacking A Great Gift Experience

Adore Me Scam Review BBB

Adore Me is advertised as a way women can treat themselves to sexy looks each month. While you can gift someone Adore Me lingerie, that’s just not what it is designed for. Like other mass market retail brands, it arrives in a simple black box with the brand “Adore Me” logo on the top and “Hello, Adorable!” on the side, while surrounded by a cardboard band. The quality of their packaging is simple and discreet (in case you were worried about that), and everything inside is wrapped in pink tissue paper and held together with an Adore Me sticker. Not super impressive or particularly fancy.

[Enclosed] Offers An Unforgettable Gift Experience

box gift lingerie

 

At [Enclosed] we work hard to ensure the recipient of our gifts feels loved and treasured, delivering an experience that is joyful and indulgent. Every month we hand select a pair of scrumptious knickers that arrives in our custom keepsake box, nestled in a bed of rose petals. Decadent—and fit always 100% guaranteed—we provide gifts that are sensual, intimate and unforgettable.

 

Adore Me Review Of Prices And Membership Model

silk panty gift box

 

Adore Me claims to have a transparent membership model, yet it has received a lot of backlash over the past few years. According to Adore Me, their policy is that you are charged every month and it is made clear during checkout. However, many claim the costs were not made clear to them upfront. By locking customers into monthly payments along with unclear disclosure that it will do so, Adore Me starts to tread on murky waters especially as some customers were surprised to learn that they were charged $39.95 monthly. It has caused frustrations among customers who felt taken advantage of and tricked into a monthly billing system.

[Enclosed] Dedication To Honesty And Transparency

Enclosed customer testimonial

 

Here at [Enclosed], customers pay upfront depending on the number of months they want their subscription to last, and we never auto-renew your subscription without your explicit consent. All the guesswork is taken out—the recipient receives her utterly divine unexpected gift in the mail month after month.

 

 

 

Adore Me Quality Of Customer Service

Adore Me customer Review BBB

It’s pretty crazy how Adore Me has racked up hundreds of angry customer complaints from quality issues to difficulty of getting a refund. Many have expressed interest in being an Adore Me shopper for life, but according to them Adore Me just hasn’t shown interest back. From being hung-up on by customer service to being refused to speak with a manager, Adore Me treats customer as if their business doesn’t mean much. However, despite all its criticism, Adore Me has managed to still grow its’ sales and make stellar improvements since these complaints have created huge waves.

Delivering Stellar Customer Service With [Enclosed]

Enclosed Quality packaging

 

At [Enclosed], we are able to solve 99% of the customer issues we come across simply by being empathetic, listening, and trying our best to solve problems while still staying true to our company’s core values Our Customer Service Policy. We pride ourselves by conducting business in an ethnical, honest, and transparent fashion.

Fine Scotch & Luxury Lingerie: A Perfect Pairing

A Scotch Lover’s Guide To Gifting Lingerie

white ultra sexy harness thong giftA great glass of single malt scotch is to a gentleman scotch lover as luxury lingerie is to female lingerie connoisseur. Both scotch and lingerie enthusiasts scour the globe to discover that perfectly indulgent experience. It’s something that sparks our never-ending curiosity. To give you a taste, here are eleven reasons why giving good scotch is the perfect pairing with fine lingerie. And feel free to give us your opinion on the matter in the comments section at the bottom.

In Scotch Ingredients Matter. So Too, Materials Make The Lingerie

Scotch Pairing Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18yoSimply put, quality matters. When it comes to a good bottle of scotch or a pair of delicate undies, designers and scotch distillers are determined to use the finest resources to ensure the scotch lover or lingerie wearer’s enjoyment. Men lose themselves in the rich flower notes of a Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18yo just as women revel in the feeling of lustrous Calais lace against their tush. Just as men admire the integral role oak casks play in deterring a whisky’s internal flavor, women adore gossamer ruffles and intricate embroideries of a perfectly designed tanga.

Scotch Drinkers Have Specific Tastes. So Too, Not All Lingerie Is Alike.

Pairing With Glenmorangie SignetWhile some men gravitate towards a richer, sweeter scotch like a bottle from Glenmorangie Signet, women’s tastes can range from leaving more to the imagination in a curve-skimming opaque piece or baring it all in sheer gossamer lingerie. Essentially everyone has a certain fit—whether it Glenmorangie Signet comes down to the type of a scotch they enjoy, or a certain style of lingerie they prefer.

Scotch Makes A Perfect Gift . . . Just As Lacy Lingerie

Pairing Scotch Balblair 1990 VintageThe gift of scotch and lingerie are both perfect for any occasion. From a thank-you to a Christmas gift, these selections offer distinctiveness and class. For the traditionalist, a bottle of Balblair 1990 Vintage. With regards to lingerie—from a birthday to an anniversary—you are able to offer the femininity, delicacy and beauty of flowers without the wilting. But, picking the right bottle can be just as hard as choosing the perfect lingerie. By understanding the distinct personalities of each bottle or each lingerie style, you can find the right match for everyone. You can turn to Enclosed’s Knicker Ladies to help you find the perfect gift for the woman in your life . . .

Choosing the Gift Is Hard: The Gift Recipient Matters

Both a bottle of fine scotch or luxury lingerie is not just a distinctive and classy gift; it’s a statement of your admiration for the person who receives it. We know your favorite boss will appreciate a Dalmore King Alexander III single-malt Scotch whisky, as will the difficult-to-find-a-gift-for father-in-law. And whether you are a man who wants to show his wife of nine years that she is still the most beautiful woman in the world in high-end KissKill boy thong, or a lover looking for a sexy birthday present might choose a “Clandestine” ultra-sexy Maison Close piece, lingerie is simple way to absolutely delight the woman in your life. Tailor the gifts to represent the occasion and the gift-recipient.

A Great Scotch’s Flavor Is In  The Details . . . Just Like A Fine Lace Thong

black panty thong tanga laceIt’s always in the details. Because of the subdued flavor scotch possess, it takes patience to see the subtleties while enjoying a glass. With The Last Drop 1967 Single Malt, you need to pay attention to detail to taste a subtle salt that melt into clove, spice, and dried fruit. If scotch is a drink to be romanced, so too is intricate and indulgent lingerie. The Swarovski embellished detailing on a Sokoloff thong could make most women swoon at the knees and feel like the most confident woman in the room.

Craftsmanship Of Scotch Is Everything

red teddy thong lingerie giftThere are no magical machines that take in a bolt of fabric and spit out an  Only Hearts teddy. Each design has dozens of pattern pieces that must be sized properly, cut out of however many layers of fabric were used, sewn together, pressed neatly, and have edges finished and trimmings applied.

Country Of Origin Matters

Scotch Lovers Pick Ardbeg Dark Cove Limited EditionJust as every Scotch has its own distinct flavor that is dependent on where it was produced, lingerie has its own distinct style that is dependent on where it was designed and manufactured. While most Islay whiskies are immediately recognizable for its trademark peaty character like a Ardbeg Dark Cove Limited Edition, UK-based lingerie brand, Mimi Holliday is immediately recognizable for its’ posh, fun-filled, distinctly British designs.

You Can Never Have Too Many Scotch Options

Scotch Lovers Recomendation Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 YOVariety matters. You can never have a too full stocked bar or a too full stocked drawer of knickers. True aficionados are constantly seeking to grow their collection. From a Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 YO to a Master of Malt 30 YO Speyside, there is quite a comprehensive list of brands, types, and sub-categories when it comes to scotch. Similarly, ladies can select from a range of different pieces from knickers to robes and teddies. And with regards to knickers; a woman wants them all; from racy g-strings to high waist, modest yet still alluring Boyshorts and demure Bikinis.

How You Pair Your Scotch (Or Lingerie) Is Critical

Scotch Lover's Pick Glenfiddich Solera 15 YOWith the rising appreciation of single malt Scotch whisky, people are starting to enjoy it in more exciting and diverse ways. While you might pair a Glenfiddich Solera 15 YO with duck and seasonal vegetables in consommé, you would never pair it with anything spicy. So too with lingerie, it matters how you match it with other pieces in your closet. For instance, women rarely pair deep, rich colored lingerie under lighter colors as to attract unwanted attention (unless, of course, that is what they are going for).

Scotch & Lingerie Are Not For Everyone

Scotch Lovers Choice Kingdom 12 YOAnd yes, we know scotch is not for everyone as is lingerie. Just as you don’t want to give your ten year-old nephew a glass of Kingdom 12 YO, you don’t want to give your mother a gold-flecked ouvert (crotchless!) black lace bikini. Both products are an acquired taste and might give the recipient the wrong idea.

An Elegant Presentation Matters

Scotch Pairing With Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch WhiskyPresentation is the first thing you notice when looking at a bottle of scotch or some lingerie. Paying homage to a traditional, old-timey approach, Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch Whisky’s gold lettering brings out the tempting amber hue of the whisky Illustrations of barrels, trains, and barns are incredibly detailed, with beautiful shading, giving it an atmosphere of utmost, premium quality. And for luxury lingerie, the gift should arrive in a presentable manner, such as a custom keepsake box, nestled in a bed of real freeze-dried flower petals to be considered tasteful and elegant.

Finishing Scotch Is Only Half The Fun, Just Like Lingerie

sheer thong valentine petal pantiesJust as finishing a drink is a wonderful feeling, so too is taking off your favorite lingerie. But, let’s still savor the process of doing so. To truly appreciate the good oak support and lingering smoke of a Jura Vintage 1977 Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, you must give it a long, full finish. When it comes to the undergarments, women take the time to truly savor the entire sensual process of foreplay, putting on, wearing and removing their lingerie.

11 Ways To Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Special

So, your wife finally has a little bun in her oven and you two couldn’t be happier. Pregnancy has been proven to reinforce relationships, but she might need some extra help feeling the love. Keep on reading for eleven ways to make your wife feel special during her pregnancy. As they say, happy wife, happy life.

1. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Beautiful: Compliment Her

This seems so simple, but the best things usually are. Your pregnant wife might start to feel insecure as her body goes through changes, and reassuring her the best you can will do wonders for her self-confidence. Telling her you find her beautiful and that her figure is more attractive than ever is a sure-fire way to bring a smile to her face.

2. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Sexy: Get Her Pretty Lingerie

pregnant wife undiesHere at Enclosed we are firm believers in the beneficial powers of a pretty pair of panties, especially if they can boost a woman’s feeling of self-worth. And there is no time when a woman needs that more than when she is pregnant. We’ve spoken to dozens of pregnant women about what they want in underwear; and the responses were clear. Pregnant women don’t just want ugly granny-panties, they still want to feel beautiful. And pregnancy panties can be sexy. So to treat your baby mama to something special, surprise her with a sexy subscription to the world’s finest lingerie club . . . 

If you need a little help choosing what to get her, at Enclosed we are experts in the matter: every month we get fathers-to-be telling us their wives are so-and-so months pregnant, and we carefully select what we know will look and fit them best. Just mention that she is pregnant under “special requests” during checkout, and we’ll take care of all the rest.

Note, buying her bras will be more trouble than it’s worth: not only will her breasts grow every month, but they are also much more sensitive, which means she needs firm support.

3. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Treasured: Take Her Out

Your wife might feel a little slow as the trimesters pass, but taking her out on dates will not only get you two moving but it is an opportunity for you to show her off. Whether you decide to treat her to a fancy restaurant or just a simple movie date, be affectionate in public (without crossing a line—tacky). She will be happy you are proud of her, in all her big-bellied glory.

4. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Fresh: Take Her Shopping

It is frustrating for anyone to realize that their favorite jeans or t-shirt fits a little too snug. Make her feel brand-new by shopping for clothes, and note, this does not have to be maternity clothes, but just for outfits that compliment her new curves.  Take a look at Séraphine for a start.

5. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Heard: Listen To Her

Hopefully this is something you already do, but it should be accentuated during her pregnancy. Your wife is going through a life changing experience that affects mind, body and soul. She will need to evacuate her feelings, whether it be fears, concerns or worries. Listen to her with compassion.

6. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Young: Flirt With Her In Public

pregnant wife underwearKeeping things light and sexy during a “serious” time will take off the edge and overall instill a sense of playfulness in your relationship. So go ahead and flirt like when you had just met, it will make every moment together feel more special.

7. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Carefree: Reassure Her

Being pregnant is scary. Even though you can be there for her every day, she is still the one carrying a child and that is nerve-racking in itself. Listen to her worries of course, but reassure her. If she is concerned about an aspect of her pregnancy, buy some books and find reassuring facts. Books we definitely recommend are The Expectant Father, Your Pregnancy For The Father To Be, and Dude, You’re Gonna Be A Dad! Make her worries your own and whatever happens, always remind her that you are in this with her.

8. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Attended To: Be Involved

Being emotionally there for your pregnant wife is a given, but your actual presence matters just as much. Go to every doctor’s appointment, try to spend as much time as you can at home and check in often. You might be busy at work but set some time aside for her and her belly: after all, you only have nine months.

9. Make Your Wife Feel Sensible: Be Tactful

Choosing your words carefully around your pregnant wife is crucial to making her feel special. Pregnant women do have a surplus of hormones which can make them feel overly emotional or sensitive at times, which is why you need to make sure the compliments you make her are genuine. Be careful about teasing her on sensitive subjects, she might have laughed with you pre-pregnancy but it might backfire on you now.

10. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Wanted: Seduce Her

thong on pregnant womanContrary to popular belief, a pregnancy is not synonymous with nine months without sex. Your pregnant wife’s hormones are a bit all over the place which means her libido might go way up (or way down.) If she is in the mood, (and with permission from her doctor), don’t be shy to make a move. She will be thrilled you find her new curvy body arousing, so prepare for a mind-blowing night (or day) of sex.

11. Make Your Pregnant Wife Feel Cherished: Enjoy The Present

Enjoy time with your pregnant wife before the baby arrives because once the little bun comes out of the oven, nothing will ever be the same. Try to not think of your wife’s pregnancy as a countdown but rather as a journey that you are taking together. Remind her often about how happy you are she is carrying your child and cherish the special bond you now have.

What are the reasons why you give knickers?

 

The United States Of Knickers

Curious to know the most popular panty style in your state? This month, the luxury lingerie subscription company Enclosed compiled and analyzed data from over 6,000 respondents to answer this question. The Enclosed infographic reveals each state’s most popular style of panties (or knickers, as Enclosed prefers to call them). The infographic also reports the states with the kinkiest and most conservative knicker cut preferences.

The United States of Knickers

Enclosed Launches Infographic Revealing The Favorite Panty Style Of Each State

Read on for more information on the infographic and its methodology.

The Bare-All Findings

The Enclosed team found thongs to be the overwhelming favorite knicker style across almost all states. However, a few opted for the sweet, sexy boyshort. These states include Arkansas, Delaware, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Hawaii and Maine. Only Vermont preferred the tanga, a cheeky cut with less coverage than the bikini. As for the kinkiest state? Read on . . .

The Kinkiest State

Who would have guessed that Utah, the Beehive state, is the most likely to request the “clandestine” style knicker? The clandestine cut includes seriously-sexy styles such as crotchless, backless and other revealing styles. The runners up for kinkiest state include Armed Forces (in various locations worldwide), Mississippi and Kansas.

The Most Conservative State

Rhode Island came in first as most likely to request our more conservative styles. This includes bikini cut, which is a classic style with ample backside coverage. The runners up for this category include Indiana, Michigan and Kentucky.

Fabulous Knicker Facts

The Enclosed data revealed other knicker tidbits surrounding customers’ special requests. Texans most frequently explicitly request purple knickers. The southeast states’ customers, from Virginia to Florida, are the most likely to send us a special request to “avoid pink” knickers.

Other Tantalizing Tidbits

The Midwest prefers their knickers with side-ties. Illinoisan customers are the likely to request garters. New Jerseyans are the most likely to request bow-back knickers. On the contrary, the state most likely to ask us to avoid frilly or bow-backs is Washington. Lastly, Missourians are the most likely to special request teddies.

The Methodology Behind The Infographic

The Enclosed team gathered the data from over 6,000 customers and crunched the numbers to reveal findings about the styles as well as the buyer’s special requests. Data was gathered over 2015 and 2016, using only customers in the U.S.A.

The DEFINITIVE list of all PANTY Quotes in Orange is the New Black

Panties, Panties, Panties

[Enclosed] loves panties. Orange is the New Black has a storyline about panties. Naturally, [Enclosed] loves Orange is the New Black.

We all know that for the past two seasons of Orange is the New Black, Piper’s illegal panty business has been smuggling inmates’ used panties out of Litchfield Penitentiary and into the black market. If you haven’t watched the series yet, (woops!) major spoiler alert! In Season 3, Whispers, an intimate apparel company, employs Piper and several other inmates to make lingerie for their company within the prison. Piper eventually develops the idea for fellow inmates to wear stolen underwear from Whispers and sell them online for cash. The drama surrounding her panty escapades gets even in juicier Season 4 when other inmates start their own illegal panty business… 

Of course, [Enclosed] being a panty business itself, just HAD to do a post dedicated to all things panties in Orange is the New Black. After all, all panties are panties–illegal, smuggled, stolen.. or NOT.
