SLIDESHOW: Valentine's Day By the Numbers
$10 Million Worth of Lingerie is Sold in Run-Up to V Day
Buying lingerie during this time of year seems like a no-brainer, but according to global
information company The NDP Group the sale of plus sized lingerie outpaces regular sizes.
While their slimmer counterparts experience a decline in sales in the first two quarters of
the year, the sale of plus sized intimates soars just in time for Valentine's Day. In 2012,
purchases of intimates for fluffy divas reached $10 million dollars in the first quarter alone.
