Consumer trends and preferences for Southeast Asian women in the lingerie market are shaped by a combination of cultural influences, changing societal norms, and evolving fashion sensibilities. One prominent trend is the increasing demand for lingerie that is both comfortable and stylish. Southeast Asian women seek intimate apparel that not only feels comfortable for everyday wear but also incorporates fashionable elements, allowing them to express their individuality and personal style. New brands are entering the Southeast Asian market, influencing women's fashion choices. For instance, in July 2023, Chinese brand NEIWAI opened its first store in Singapore. The brand offers lingerie among other clothing items in the country with a vast range of men’s products.

Consumers in Southeast Asia are responding positively to lingerie brands that promote body positivity and inclusivity. They appreciate brands that prioritize comfort and confidence over unrealistic beauty standards. This trend drives product innovation and encourages a more positive and affirming lingerie shopping experience for individuals of all backgrounds and identities. For instance, SOKO, a start-up lingerie brand based in Malaysia, focuses on inclusivity, empowerment, and diversity through its campaigns, products, and marketing strategies. It represents women through a diverse lens to re-imagine the over-sexualized lingerie shopping experience in Southeast Asia. Its website also offers learning resources for women, such as a size calculator, how-to guides, and chatting with a fit specialist.

Women in Southeast Asian countries are increasingly seeking lingerie that prioritizes comfort and well-being. The concept of creating lingerie that prioritizes women's emotional values and self-expression while considering comfort is a prominent trend in Southeast Asia’s lingerie market. This trend reflects the evolving preferences and values of Southeast Asian consumers, who are increasingly seeking lingerie that aligns with their lifestyles. As a result, lingerie brands that embrace these values and cater to the market's specific needs are expanding their reach in the countries and are likely to thrive and drive positive changes in the local lingerie industry. For instance, in June 2023, AOG, a brand focused on women's health lingerie, was launched in Indonesia. The production of women's health lingerie by AOG integrates three patented technologies, including psychology, biomechanics, and human anatomy, and caters to products based on the cultural characteristics and climate of Southeast Asia. Two series of products, such as vest styles and classic back-clasp, were introduced at Indonesia's brand launch event.

Distribution Channel Insights

The sales of lingerie through offline channels accounted for a 69.7% share in 2022. Offline stores allow consumers to physically examine the fabric, fit, and comfort before making a purchase. Furthermore, in recent years, many stores typically feature fitting rooms where customers can try on various lingerie styles and sizes to ensure a comfortable and proper fit. As a result, offline channels will continue to be the dominant sales platform for lingerie in the Southeast Asia region.Furthermore, offline retail channels cater to a broad range of customers, from high-end boutiques to department stores and discount shops. This diversity in shopping options ensures that customers with varying budgets and style preferences can find lingerie that suits their needs, contributing to driving demand among a broader customer base. For instance, a Vietnam-based provider of lingerie, Hana Lady, offers a wide range of lingerie and sleepwear for women. The company operates through its two physical stores in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, and an online portal.

New offerings in this segment have attracted a new and diverse customer base and have also challenged traditional preconceptions about shapewear.Gen-Z consumers are considerably responsible for this change in the shapewear market as they prioritize inclusivity more than any other generation and seek products that align with their values and desire for authenticity.
