It's about women who are pleasing themselves

and phrasing is out. Just...out

Lingerie is really only for a woman's pleasure--do whatever makes you comfortable or feel how you want to feel. (Most) men's favorite lingerie for their wife/GF is whatever lies on the floor beside the bed.

What the hell is wrong with you?  French lingerie become practical is like a wet dream co--

Even in France, lingerie shifts from sexy to comfortable

Oh.  That's what you meant.

I'm not too clear on what this "French Lingerie" is. Do you have any examples you could share?

Strictly for edification purposes, of course

I'm not so sure this is pandemic-related as much as it seems that women are becoming more and more aware of how little the average guy deserves our effort. Not all men, of course, but...enough of them that it's a problem. I don't know a single women right now who is actively trying to date, even pre-pandemic. It's just a massive waste of time and energy. Why not be comfortable? Don't have to cook for a vibrator or dress in anything involving underwire or clean up its messes or pay its bills.

The shift has been noticeable in recent years in other Western countries, measured most notably in declining sales at Victoria's Secret

I'm sure it has nothing to do with their drastic increase in prices and decrease in quality. I've seen cuter stuff stuck onto Walmart hams.

Makeup is often the same way. Very few men seen to actually notice, particularly if you go for a natural look. My husband doesn't care if I have makeup on or not, but I don't feel dressed without my touch of blush and lipstick.

Maybe you shouldn't have looked for dates behind the truck stop if you're looking for quality people.

"It's about women who are pleasing themselves, comfortable in who they are, who have their own lives that are free from traditional demands."

And we'll gladly sell them ALL the stuff they need to buy to make that happen!

Maybe it's because I'm not the target audience, but it still smells like pandering to make a sale.

Busty bras give you 3 options:
1) Cute
2) Comfortable
3) Relatively cheap
Pick 2.

Well that's not very nice.  Also, you wouldn't be saying that if you'd seen the kind of guys that women seem to meet in "normal" dating venues.  I've heard stories, man.

Oh there is a far, far better kind of example in women's fashion which VERY easily proves that women choose the fashion they wear without thinking of whether it will please men.

Shoes.

Everyone knows that many women are crazy about shoes.

Yet I doubt very much that there are many men who, when meeting a beautiful woman, start noticing them by looking at their feet!

I have not thought about the reasoning behind why women love shoes, but basic logic should tell you that it is not so that they can be noticed by men!

If any female Farkers have insights into why this is so, I for one would like to know.

This.
If a burlap sack is what revs her motor I'll go find a dozen of them.

Fwiw my sex life is pretty great and usually the clothes just end up in a pile.  Lingerie means that I should have started hydrating and loading up on protein that morning because it's going to be a long night.

The couple of single-ish (it's complicated) buddies of mine who use Tinder and Bumble and such on a regular basis inform me the only thing slowing down their "action" on there (and with former hook-ups looking for a booty call) through the pandemic has been their own reluctance to risk COVID. If anything it seems "supply" has been up, with even more nurses than usual hanging out on those apps.

Though I guess neither of them are trying to date, exactly. Maybe that's different.

That place is kind of overrated if you ask me. Sure you get 18 courses of foie gras poached in endangered eel sauce on an artisanal cracker baked on the summit of Mt. Fancypants but it's kind of hot and crowded and way way too expensive.

There are plenty of places that host bra fitting experts in NE Tennessee.  Visit one. I'm certain they can also supply ones that offer fashion as well as function.

And, if successful, I ask only that you, as a thank you, offer pics to prove your success.

I'm not single. I'm happily in a long-term relationship with a great guy. I did say "not all men" after all. But as Gawdzila referenced...I've seen some things. As have most women. And I also didn't say that there are zero women anywhere in existence looking for a date (but also yes a lot of female dating profiles are bots, this is known). But I forgot that this is Fark and we deal in hyperbole and gross generalization ONLY!

Apparently this is a radical concept since a photo of an average-sized woman in lingerie was posted ITT in a (successful!) attempt to fish for "funnies"

Despite appearances to the contrary, I was smart enough to figure out that you weren't being completely literal.  I was just trying to make a little joke at the expense of my own unsuccessful dating streak, but the delivery was probably off and it was certainly too vague by at least half.  Sorry for the misunderstanding, I'll just be over here rethinking my plans to write a comedy screenplay.

Victoria's Secret is made for twenty-somethings, I know very few women over 30 who find their styles comfortable, flattering, or worth the cost.  When Millennials were young, a colorful bra under a white shirt was fun to wear.  Millennials are now old enough to prefer a nude bra under a work-appropriate blouse, and to want something comfortable and functional.  Zoomers seem to be far more concerned with comfort than other generations, so I certainly see the market for Victoria's Secret declining.

The pandemic is hastening the obsolescence of the underwire.  I know a lot of women who have decided that they are just done with those.  Regardless of the actual fashions, different eras can be identified by the women's preferred silhouettes.  In the 2020s a more natural, less lifted bust will likely be common.
