Is it permissible or not to wear Lingerie in front of other women?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Question:

Is it permissible or not to wear Lingerie in front of other women.


Answer:

It is not permissible for a woman to wear lingerie in front of other women.

This is on account of the fact that it is not permissible for a Muslim woman to expose the area between the navel to the knee to another Muslim woman. The other parts can be exposed out of necessity when there is no fear of lust and desires. If there is a fear of such then it will be Haram to expose these parts. This is the opinion of all scholars.

In the case of exposure in front of a non Muslim woman, then it will not be permissible for a Muslim woman to expose any part of her body in front of such women (non Muslims) except the face and the hands. This is the opinion of the majority of scholars.
