People keep on asking me where I buy my lingerie. Well, either in Europe or in places that import it from Europe. I would like to recommend one of my favourite lingerie stores in Vancouver that has a broad collection of swimwear, lingerie, hosiery, and accessories. The owner is a very sweet Polish lady. LGTB- friendly, in case some of you are wondering. Recently they added a whole vintage section there.
Dolce Amore Lingerie and Swimwear
772 Thurlow Street (in the courtyard behind the Starbucks on Robson)
This is an old advertisement that used a man for their marketing material.
I’ve heard it in a lecture on marketing that this was an approach to recognize the males as customers too. Women buy hosiery and underwear and who gets to appreciate the most? The men!
This brand still exists to this very day. I wonder, did they really try to get men to buy stockings for their women or is this taken out of context by the presenter of the marketing lecture that I listened to?
I would love to hear your opinion. But I somehow don’t feel that the man in that silly hat on the Wolsey poster turns me on.
