How To Handle A Lingerie Addiction
Buying lingerie can be just as addictive as snorting glucose off the top of a doll house. And as many 'sugar heads' will tell you, the habit is even harder to break. Why? Well, scientific research conducted by the FDA indicates that 9 out of 10 people who buy lingerie do so because lingerie is 'awesome.' It looks good, it feels good and it makes you feel good about yourself. Just one piece of nice lingerie can be more effective than a whole pack of back alley Prozac.
Lingerie comes in many forms, most of us are familiar with them, so I won't waste your time by crudely naming them here. The most effective types of lingerie are those pieces which feature a 50% or greater concentration of lace matched with an equal or greater concentration of one of the following: Silk, Satin or Nylon.
The generic form of lingerie, nylon lingerie, can be found in almost any store which sells clothing. Nylon lingerie is considerably cheaper than silk or satin, but it is almost as effective, so one should not be ashamed of purchasing it. It is also considerably more resilient than the more expensive fabrics and can withstand being thrown in the wash with yesterday's old socks.
Cotton lingerie is also popular, however its popularity tends to be greatest among people who are, for one reason or another, unable to appreciate the benefits of smooth, silky lingerie. In many markets, cotton is being phased out in favor of microfiber, which feels smoother, wicks away moisture in much the same way, but which is made out of nasty man made chemicals which pollute the environment and put cotton pickers out of business at a prodigious rate. Organic cotton lingerie can still be purchased, and is highly recommended to those who like to feel smug about their contribution to saving the planet.
A lingerie buying addiction can be managed by adhering to a lingerie buying schedule or budget. If the lingerie aficionado allows themselves a certain amount of money every month expressly for the purchase of lingerie, then he or she will be able to enjoy the anticipation of waiting for the new lingerie month to roll around and the satisfaction of having new lingerie as set out by the schedule. Going ' cold turkey' as a means to curing a lingerie addiction is not recommended as it consigns one to a life of horrifically ugly and uncomfortable underwear and nobody, not even your worst enemy, deserves that.
