The Telegraph UK ran a report that says sale of upmarket lingerie on eBay went up many times this Valentine’s Day with La Perla recoding the highest percentage at 823%. Myla rose by 150% and Agent Provocateur was up 800%.

Even though I was out of the scene this Valentine’s Day as I had something to take care of and was not able to manage my online business, I am still happy to note that lingerie is still a very relevant gift when it comes to a expressing a guy’s “love” on a romantic day like Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is a very tricky day for guys. The guy can’t buy cheap gifts or he would be called stingy. If he had bought a gift that’s not what the partner wanted, he would be deemed inattentive. That’s why guys have to spend as much as they could afford just to show how much they love their partner.
Not too long ago, I read that upmarket brands were not really affected by the economic downturn. Well, now you can understand why!
