Ann Summers can be very hit and miss. The Hosiery in particular is a bit of a miss, and expensive too for what you get. First of all they only do two set sizes. So as a 5ft9 girl I was advised to buy the extra large pair, I am a size 10 and these were ridiculous on me but the smaller pair barely covered my knees.
The quality as well is not good, with ladders appearing quickly and bows and ribbons falling off repeatedly.
However the ranges they do are good, the ranges of ones with different coloured bows are good for matching to other pieces of lingerie.
However a quick look about the internet will bring up a lot better lingerie shops whose stockings and hold ups are more durable, prettier and cheaper as well. Basically Ann Summers have the hold of the high street market as they are so well known but dont fall for their charms!
Stockings for £2.00 seem like a good idea at the time, but when you are just about to leave for a night out and slightly graze against a chair only too end up with a six inch hole in your new hosiery, the old saying comes to mind "buy cheap, buy twice".
A friend of mine recommended Ann summers stockings to me after my moan about the said £2.00 primark stockings and I have never looked back.
I purchased a pair of the thigh high wide fishnets with lace top in black (good for that burlesque look), at £6.00 a pair they seem expensive to a bargain junkie like myself, but the quality and durability more than make up for the price. Since then I have purchased the same style in black and white.
One HUGE advantage is that they come in different sizes (small, medium, large and extra large). No more dreaded sausage thighs, or thigh highs that are more like knee-highs, hooray!!
Their hold ups do what they say on the tin. I have bought so-called "hold ups" in the past that fall wrinkled to my ankles granny style after a few steps as they don't have that sticky plastic band on the inside. These stockings stay up all night and you don't have to keep pulling them up every few minutes.
As well as the basic fishnets they have some really cute but limited range of styles such as the current "Ribbon Slot Hold Ups".
I only shop at AS for my basic stocking styles now, and send my friends to them (I should get some sort of discount).
I thought I would write another opinion about Ann summers because they are totally TURD and that is coming from a girl. A few months ago I thought I would buy a dildo for the laugh. Any way I went in and bought the chilly Willy dildo and it was £35pound. Anyways one day I was messing about with the boyfriend as you do. I thought of an idea my boyfriend was always going on about me taking it up the arse anyways I thought I would get ma own back and tried to sick it up my boyfriends arse. But the STUPID thing snapped now it sounds like a tractor. I think they need to make dildos a bit stronger like the real thing. Well that my opinion anyway
