Why are creative and interesting sexy-wear designs so hard to find outside of Etsy or AliExpress?
All designs you see in stores are basically very samey. The underlying "structure" is the same, only a few superficial things change.
> dresses with basically the same cut, only difference is where a flair or decorative attachment is placed
> underwear is always the same design, but omg different patterns of lace and different colors! So creative omg
> shoes are the same, this pointy heel is the same as that one, but instead of a flower on top it has a gem thingy! So creative
But then the places where you get true creativity are either aliexpress, where clothing products are always always trash quality made in sweatshops, even the ones that are not dirt cheap, or Etsy where some wood elf hand crafts a sock out of some bespoke wool and the price is 300 bucks since there’s zero economy of scale.
Pic related. This is a great sexy stiletto boot/stocking concept. Can’t find it outside of AliExpress, and there it costs over a hundred bucks. The ones I can find elsewhere are not the same, they’re loose, made of faux leather, etc.
Why is it so hard to find creative designs outside of these two extremes?
