Where’s all the Satin Lingerie?
Look around in your favorite lingerie shop and count the number of satin bras & panties they offer. Not many, right? Satin was such a big deal in the 90s and today it’s rare as hen’s teeth. Why is that? And where can you find them?
We’ve got some answers for you right here!
Victoria’s Secret Second Skin Satin
Most girls got their first taste of satin lingerie from Victoria’s Secret. Second Skin Satin was a huge success and became a staple in many women’s closets. Then… It was discontinued. No big announcements about why, but it appears that it had little to do with demand. Women then, and now, LOVED their 2nd Skin Satin.
So where did it go?
What Happened to Satin?
Honestly, we can’t tell you why satin underwear became so uncommon and what’s keeping it there. But, as designers and manufacturers of lingerie, we do have a pretty good sense of what makes it challenging from our perspective. So, if you’ll allow me to speculate, I think I have a few ideas about what might have happened.
Satin is a Delicate Fabric
The first clue is told by the retail merchandisers and managers:
People LOVE to touch satin. It’s shiny and silky and beautiful. It’s also incredibly delicate. If you handle satin lingerie with rough hands, it picks. Picking is when little bits of the thread pull up and create a blemish on the fabric. Since women of course like to try on lingerie, it makes sense that some of these women will have rough skin or nails or other surfaces that can create blemishes on the fabric.
Retailers often complain that satin is just too hard to maintain in a retail environment because it damages too easily.
Satin is Tricky to Manufacture
If retailers are complaining, then you can imagine how tricky satin lingerie could be to manufacture in an industrial environment

Satin is a bright shiny thing that attracts the eye and makes the viewer want to look… and touch. The play of light on the shiny satin surface accentuates curves and — let’s be honest — who doesn’t like curves!?
