The alley by the entrance to my hotel in Amman happened to be the place to shop for lingerie, some of it quite kinky. It was interesting to see women in full covering shopping in stores such as the one pictured above. All the salespeople were men, and husbands almost always shopped with their wives, paying for the purchases. They did quite a steady business.
