Kinky Knickers

I should have listened to my husband but I was intrigued by the marketing, I mean what makes knickers kinky? And what is kinky anyway, I suppose it depends on the individual. Anyway House of Fraser had them on a sale offer so I bought some online and was quite excited when they arrived at the office (I always have online stuff delivered there), I resisted the temptation to open them though in case anyone walked in and caught me with them, I mean what if they had a tickler inside them or something, and even the packaging on my desk might be embarrassing depending who saw it.

When I did check them out, at home, I was disappointed, there was nothing kinky about them at all and they weren't even well made in my opinion, nor was the stated size, which is my normal, anywhere near correct, they would have fallen off me. I re-packed them after a quick snap, they'll definitely be going back.


Click bottom of picture for bigger image. In case you can't read the blurb - Best worn when the sun's up but the blinds are down and you're on top of the day (or underneath the milkman) and you're feeling a little bit naughty underneath.


So where does my husband come into this trivia? Well, the knickers were by, or fronted by, a tv 'personality' here in the UK named Mary Portas, her claim to fame is that she is, or purports to be, a retail shopping guru. She was even hired by the UK government to give specialist advice on how to reignite our flagging high street shopping which is a problem in UK towns and cities with empty retail spaces where shops used to be. She failed and my husband said at the time of her appointment that she would and, having seen one of her tv appearances once, that in his opinion she was a tossser. I'm not too sure if his vernacular was correctly applied. 

I told P I'd bought some but was sending them back, he just said he wasn't surprised, then asked if I had to pay return postage, I said no (white lie) and he said good, because if I had he'd have spanked me for wasting money. I inwardly said shit, opportunity wasted then wondered if he'd do the same for lying :)

Anyway Mary, your knickers are on their way back, not impressed sorry, no kink and no fit.

Have a good week

Buying on line is an easy way to shop, but too often, the item is not what you think it is. Ronnie it's best to tell P what you did and hand him the paddle.

So what am I missing – what is considered kinky about them?
What was the ad promising?

Roz said...

Sorry they didn't live up to their name Ronnie. I'm struggling to see what was meant to be kinky about them too. The perils of online shopping.

Hugs,
Roz

Hold this lie back until you really need a spanking and pull out your confession then. It's always good to have a reason in the bank.

Ami Starsong said...

I looked at some of these in Marks and Sparks a while ago. Likewise I thought them very badly made, which after all the blurb on TV was a real let down. Also, at £10 they are not particularly good value. You can buy three pairs for £18 in White Stuff which are the most comfortable "every day" knickers I have ever worn, and nicely made too.

Hugs

ronnie,

What a disappointment. Do they have Frederick's of Hollywood in the UK?

Hug,
joey

Hermione said...

They look quite nice, but not at all kinky. False advertising!

Hugs,
Hermione

a missed out spanking and no kinky panties - what a shame...well hopefully you will get a spanking anyways - I am sure you can find reason - wait who needs a reason? :-) Hugs

ronnie said...

Leigh - It happens. Thanks.

Gary - Now hush in case he hears you:) Thank you.

Archedone - I'll do as PK says, keep it in reserve. Thank you.

Enzo - When the ad said kinky knickers I thought there must surely be something kinky about them, but no. Thanks.

Roz - Misleading. Maybe I should write to the trading standards:) Thank you.

PK - I like the thinking:) Thanks.

Ami - I'd never seen them in shops. I'll take a look a White Stuff knickers. Thanks.

Joey - No we don't. Often when buying online from abroad the shiping costs more than the item. Cheers.

Hermione - Wouldn't have minded too much if they had fitted and been of good quality. Thanks.

Terps - I would have liked the spanking over the kinky knickers but no kinky knickers and no spanking:( Thank you.

Love,
Ronnie

Hi Ronnie, what a let down! no knickers and no spanking. Blimey at least confess to the lie and get something out of this disaster :)
love Jan.xx

This is a big reason why I avoid buying clothing items without seeing them in person to make my own judgment call. They look cute enough, but not sure what "kinky" was supposed to mean.....

Might be worth keeping if a secret vibrator was tucked away inside to make the day more bearable!

They did not look very special.
Maybe you could purchase these Leonisa panties as suggested by Our Bottoms Burn. Perhaps you could road test them for your friends?

PS not suggesting for a minute that you need control panties.

Jan - I'm saving it:) Thanks.

Sarah - Good to see you. I'd definitely be keeping them if that was the case:) Thanks.

Michael - Not kinky at all. I did check out the Leonisa knickers but shipping is far too expensive. Thanks.

Love,
Ronnie
