CHICAGO, Dec. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The holiday season sees an increase in lingerie sales, though findings suggest that the gifting of such items is unwanted. A new CouponCabin.com survey reveals more than half (61 percent) of U.S. women do not want to receive lingerie as a gift this holiday season. In addition, 68 percent of women surveyed prefer to shop for lingerie alone.
People may deem lingerie as a popular holiday gift, but 86 percent of women said they prefer to buy their own lingerie. The survey uncovers the following data showcasing lingerie shopping habits for women:
- 40 percent of women said they would spend $25 on lingerie in a single shopping trip
- 72 percent of women prefer to shop for lingerie in-store rather than online
- 60 percent of women said they shop for lingerie only once a year
That said, 69 percent of women said they would feel more inclined to buy lingerie if they had a coupon. When asked about store preference, 47 percent of women said they shop for lingerie at department stores (Nordstrom, Macy's, JCPenney, etc.) while 34 percent shop at Victoria's Secret. CouponCabin is home to a large selection of online coupons and cashback opportunities from lingerie-related retailers, including Victoria's Secret, that help shoppers save on the purchase of intimates.
"Our top lingerie stores like Victoria's Secret tend to see peak coupon redemptions around Valentine's Day and again during the holiday season," said Peter Herrera, CouponCabin.com's Chief Savings Officer.
