Buying in Nine Days for Purpose of Mitzvah

Is a woman allowed to buy intimate apparel during the 9 days for the purpose of Leil Mitzvah and it is the night after Tisha B’av?


This is permitted.

In general, the prohibition against buying clothing and other items in the Nine Days is deferred where there is a mitzvah involved (Rema, Orach Chaim 551:2; Mishnah Berurah 14).

Moreover, the prohibition applies to important items, and not generally to underwear (perhaps “special” underwear should not be bought, but for purposes of a mitzvah it is fine).

Best wishes.
