In order to better understand the market context from the consumer’s perspective, Piera delegated MKOR to carry out a market study that explored topics of interest regarding the purchase of lingerie in general, as well as positioning against the main competitors and in-depth understanding of consumers.

For this project, we carried out a quantitative study, using as a data collection tool the online opinion survey, carried out with the help of MKOR’s own Panel.

Romanian consumers behavior regarding lingerie purchases

The data obtained through the usage and attitudes study revealed the context in which Romanian consumers purchase women lingerie, their preferred purchasing channel, as well as the average amount spent per shopping session.

Also, our client obtained relevant insights about its consumers (consumer personas) and its positioning in the market.

The main objectives of the study were:

  • Identifying purchase frequency, contexts, purchased products, allocated budgets
  • Identifying brand awareness, the conversion rate, preferred brands and satisfaction level (Net Promoter Score benchmarking)
