Beautiful, high-quality lingerie isn’t cheap. So, it’s easy to guilt trip yourself out of buying the nicer items while lingerie shopping. You talk yourself out of buying an expensive garment you’d love, and opt for a less expensive one you’ll “be okay with” instead. But when it comes to lingerie, you won’t wear it if you don’t love it. So, is it worth spending an extra $20 to $40 bucks on lingerie that you’ll love? Absolutely.

Here’s why you should allow yourself to splurge on lingerie you love.

1.  High-quality lingerie will last longer.

Quality lingerie can be expensive because it’s designed (literally) to last longer. Everything about the garment is quality – from the materials it’s made of to the way it’s sewn together. On the other hand, cheap lingerie can be itchy, fit oddly or show early signs of wear and tear. A garment may cost a little more, but you can rest assured it will still be in your lingerie drawer for years to come.

2.  You’ll get more wear out of it because you love it.

If you don’t like a lingerie garment, you won’t wear it. So, you should make your selection based on how you feel in the lingerie, not solely on price. When you love the lingerie, you’ll feel great every time you put it on. Consequently, you’ll wear it more often and get your money’s worth. And, you’ll be reminded each time that you’re glad you splurged a bit for an item that makes you feel so good.

3.  It will make you feel beautiful and confident.

Lingerie is meant to make you feel beautiful and confident. And confidence is not something you want to sacrifice. If you feel fierce in a garment that costs a little more, don’t feel discouraged by the price. Remind yourself that you’re not just paying for fabric. You’re paying for something that will boost your confidence every time you wear it.

4.  You probably don’t splurge on lingerie often.

If you’re reading this article, you likely don’t splurge on nice lingerie often. And, that’s exactly why you should! Every woman deserves to have beautiful lingerie that makes her feel like a goddess. If you don’t treat yourself to lingerie often, you absolutely should splurge a little on an item you will love to wear.

5.  Lingerie is about quality, not quantity.

You could have a lingerie drawer full of garments, but only wear three of them. When it comes to lingerie, you want to focus on quality, not quantity. After all, what’s the point of having 15 garments if you only like three of them? Consider how much money you spent on all the items in your drawer that you’re not even wearing. Then, consider if you would have splurged a little bit on pieces you adored. You’d be wearing those lingerie pieces consistently, making them worth the money spent.

Don’t focus only on the price tag while lingerie shopping. If an item is more expensive than the budget you had in mind, but within reach, try it on. Let the way you feel in that lingerie be your decision maker.
