Buying Underwear Online vs. A Store
Women have the option to shop in a store anywhere to purchase pretty much any style of underwear with plenty of fabric and color/pattern options. Men are very limited in their in store selection. Typically there are probably three style selections that may have a couple fabric options and color/patterns. Go online and then us guys have a pretty similar selection as the women. Let’s assume online and stores have a similar variety in style selection. What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of each?
A big advantage stores have over online is you can get your underwear right then and there. No waiting on processing and ship times that can take days to weeks depending on where you order. You however miss out on the anticipation of your package of underwear arriving.
With in store purchases you get to physically hold, look, and feel the product if not packaged. You’ll be able to tell how soft or rough the fabric is. Find out the amount of stretch it is. Get a better idea on the sizing of the pair. See how narrow the sides and back are. How the pouch is constructed and whatever else you want to check out with them. If swimwear you’d be able to try it on. Not going to get any of that online.
Shopping online you get to be discreet. If you are worried about someone seeing you buy your skimpies then online is the way to go. Most companies ship in fairly plain packaging. Reviews are another advantage of shopping online. Often you can read what others say about the pair before buying. I suppose you could look it up on your phone at the store.
Here’s some potential ones, but really may go either way. Typically online I’m going to buy more pairs to make shipping worthwhile or meet the free shipping quota. In a store you could just buy one pair and leave. Possibly better pricing online, but may have to pay shipping. Potentially better selection online though looking at women’s underwear it seems Victoria Secret has better variety in store especially with colors/patterns at times.
Those are some things that come to mind with online shopping vs in store shopping for underwear with a similar playing field. Maybe look at it from what women actually have now over us guys. What advantages and disadvantages do you see?
