For those of you in the UK, you may have like me just finished watching The Bottom Line with Mary Portas. Well I'm a big fan and when I heard that she was planning to try and bring back British-made knickers in her new show I was hooked on the idea. I love what Mary stands for and her work ethic is second to none! What she achieves in her shows is just amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the show.
I was lucky enough to grab myself 3 pairs (one in each colour!) of her brand of 'Kinky Knickers' from John Lewis priced at £10.00 each, which I know may sound like a lot when compared to Primarks £1 a pair... BUT... these knickers are well worth their higher price point. Mary wanted to create a pair if knickers that were not only pretty but functional... comfortable to wear and with no VPL! Well she succeeded. The Nottingham Lace is so very beautiful and makes each pair special. They are amazingly comfortable to wear... to be honest they were so nice it felt as if I were going commando!!

And the packaging... well I love vintage anyway but the little boxes that you knickers nestle in are just so sweet. The packaging reads, "Best worn when the Sun's up but the blinds are down, you're on top of your day (or under the milkman) and you're feeling just a little bit naughty underneath... Top Knickers for the Finest Bottoms", And proudly states MADE IN BRITAIN!! Simply adorable.
|Adorable Vintage Style Packaging... and its recyclable too!!|
The quirkiness of the product doesn't stop there as hidden away in the gusset of each pair you'll find a little ribbon label telling you exactly which one of Mary's recruits lovingly made you pair... two of mine were made by James and one by Adrian... thank you Boys!!

So I highly recommend that you go out a buy yourself at least one pair of these fabulous knickers... say knickers to the others and show Mary and her team your support!!
