I love the Ann Summers knickers. They have a huge range of styles. Knickers, thongs, G-string, french knickers, lace, high waisted and support ones.
They also come in a huge range of colors and they can be found in any color red, white, blue, black, purple, silver, gold.
They range from four to ten pounds - it really depends.
Not forgetting that these knickers can last up to three years - depending how often you wear them, but if you wear them for special occasions then they could last up to four to five years.
They come in any frills, lace, bows, silk, cotton - whatever feels comfortable for you Ann Summers will have it - but they don't you can order it either in store or over the internet.
Sale time is probably the best time to come to Ann Summers as they have a huge collection of knickers in the sale lines and some are only sold for either a pound or two, sometimes three. I bought a couple of pairs from the sale and the sizes are quite big, the knickers normally arrange in the sizes: small, medium and large. However, sometimes they do have knickers which range from size 8 to 18 - so no matter your size, they'll have underwear for you.
Sadly, if the knicker you really want is in the sale, but no your size but I'm afraid to say that they won't get any more stock of that item.
I will be honest that their underwear especially the knickers are more comfortable than you think they are! bonus!
Also if you can the babydoll, stockings or bra to match - buy a sex cause then you will feel more sexier!
Overall, even though I do find Ann Summers quite an expensive place to shop for your underwear however it does last for years and they are comfortable and easy to wash. So, no matter how much you have you'll find something whether it is in the sale or not
Back when I was younger and a little more naive I used to shop at Ann Summers. Not any more though.
Looking back makes me cringe at how I used to think their underwear products where sexy.
I have since discovered taste, style, a little more class and better quality items.
Ok, so I may be biased because I do prefer to not wear the same thing as everyone else, even if it is underneath my clothes. Regardless, there is doubting the quality of an item when you hardly wear it and then it falls to bits after a couple of washes. This is what ended up happening to all my Ann Summers knickers and this is one of two main reasons why I stopped buying from there.
I do buy the odd item from Ann Summers, like the bras, but not the knickers anymore.
I don't know what it is about the way they are made but the seams and stitching just comes apart. I have not had this problem with bras or anything else, just the knickers.
And then there is the comfortability factor. As far as being able to actually wear the underwear under your clothes limits you to about half of what is available. If you want something that you are going to wear only a few times for the sake of your other half then these knickers are for you. If you want something with a little more wear in them, better quality and less tackyness then shop somewhere else.
The first ever time I was introduced to Ann Summers, was when a friends' older sister held a Ann Summers party at her house. I'd only briefly seen the shop in town but never really bothered to walk in, as I was quite pleased with the underwear I usually purchase from La Senza. The prices of Ann Summers undies was significantly higher than the La Senza Stuff and I wasn't actually sure what the quality would be like.
So, at this party, there was a representative for Anne Summers. She brought brochures, samples of the many toys you can get and had some games with her to entertain all the party guests.
I was quite intrigued by a lingerie set I saw in the magazine. The model was wearing this cute pink balconette bra and thong. I thought I'd order this, as not much of the other stuff seemed worth my money and I felt I had to buy something as it would help my friends sister get her free gift. (She had to get her friends to buy over a particular amount in order for her to be entitled to the free gift, I think the target was £250 but don't quote me on that as I'm not 100% sure).
So I got my items a few weeks later... the bra was ok and fitted me fine, but the underwear felt way too large for me! I was really gutted, as I'd already gotten it in the smallest size they had. They didn't sell it smaller than a size 10 and this definitely felt like, what a La Senza size 12 would have been. (I usually get them in size 8 in La Senza). So this thong was like 2 sizes too big for me... how annoying!
So yeah, I guess the quality is good enough but their underwear range doesn't really cater for people under a size 10, which is a petty. I wouldn't buy underwear there again as it's a bit more expensive and I'm happy with my La Senza stuff.
I love a good Ann Summers party and my girlfriends love to throw them, the only problem is that you feel obliged to buy and the stuff isn't cheap so if you are at one every month then you have to watch the pennies. I have the perfect answer for this... Knickers!
You can never have too many pairs of knickers and they are one of the less expensive items in the Ann Summers range. I am very much a thong girl and just don't do the granny pants and when it comes to a nice looking comfortable to wear thong Ann Summers cannot be beat. Although their thongs are less expensive than other things in the range they are a lot more expensive than thongs from other places.
I find myself on average splashing out around about 8 - 10 pounds for a thong from Ann Summers when I could pick one up for half of that from a whole range of other places. The thing with the Ann summers ones is that they look as good as they feel so they can either be everyday underwear or they can be for that special moment with that special man.
All the Ann summers thongs I own have a very sexy looking triangle on the back, you know the bit guys, the bit that sticks out over our jeans and gets you all a flutter. Ann Summers understands low cut jeans and thongs and always pays particular attention to the triangular piece of silk, cotton or whichever fabric they are made of to ensure that when it does pop out on show it looks good.
I do own thongs from other places but all my good ones are from Ann Summers and they are the only ones I will wear with hipster jeans or if I am on a night out in which I might get lucky (sorry I mean some guy might get lucky).
The one thing with Ann Summers thongs and indeed all Ann summers wearable items is that you usually need to get them a size bigger than you normally wear because they are small made. I wear a size 8 everything except in Ann summers thongs which I always get in a ten!
Ann Summers are known for sexy lingerie, bedroom games and other associated items and, having had a good look at these, I can honestly say that they are not my thing.
However, I do wear knickers, so when I saw a bright red lacy pair that had little more material than that necessary for the making of a small handkerchief and a ribbon, I decided to buy them.
These cost me £3.99 which hard breaks the bank but I did wonder fleetingly, at the time, whether I might be better buying this kind of apparel at 3 for £1 in the market.
Anyway, it was an Ann Summers Shop and Ann Summers is synonymous with sexy, or is it?
I came out of the shower and started to dress for a particularly important date (well, important to me). My new sexy knickers were the first thing I tried on.
They were very tight. I am usually a size 12 but these were a bit on the skimpy side. It doesn't do the ego much good when a pair of sexy pants in your regular size is too small. I wonder if I'm putting weight on, I thought.
I soon discounted that idea. The sizes are very small and I'd recommend anyone to buy the next size up.
Anyway, I got ready to go out. I'll spare you the details.
After about half an hour I felt quite uncomfortable around the lower regions and when I investigated I noticed that the lace edge around this garment had rubbed my skin and made it go sore and red.
Further investigation showed that the edging was stiff and prickly in parts. By the time I decided to change into something else my skin was red and spotty from the abrasion.
This was hardly the image I was looking for.
After I had washed these knickers and used fabric softener on them, I tried them again. The problem was not as bad, but it they still irritated. I have never worn them since.
Ann Summers stock the similar garments in leather, PVC, velvet and other materials, so there's lots of choice. Just make sure that they aren't going to irritate you where you don't want them too.
And no.... I love Ann Summers, not so into their "other" items, but I quite like the look of their undies. I say "the look" because the reality is something different. I've only ever actually bought a pair of Ann Summers knickers, the black velvet thong to be precise, and I wasn't particularly impressed. For starters, it was expensive, at a tenner (for a G-string!), but I thought, "hey what the heck, treat yourself love", and my visa card got another bashing. Prior to buying, I had a little chat with the sales assistant, who was lovely, and pointed out that Ann Summers knickers are a bit small for their size, i.e. I'd have to get one size up from my usual. That in itself isn't very flattering when they're on the floor with the label sticking out for all (well just me of course ;) ) to see. So I bought a size bigger than I thought I needed, and went off to show them off to....myself of course (who else would be seeing my knickers?), and they just weren't particularly sexy-looking, just like a normal G-string that looked a bit tight. Added to this, the velvet was such that it was smooth on the "up" stroke (towards your belly button" rather than the other way which I would have prefered. Returning to the "not looking very sexy" issue...the style just isn't what I expected. They are sort of baggy at the back and the "triangle" which is oh-so-sexy for so many men just isn't up to scratch, I wasn't impressed. I am, however, told that they are nice to stroke (even if it is the wrong way). Washing-wise, they do stand up to a lot, and have lasted very well despite my blatant disregard for the proper instructions. All in all, I wouldn't buy them again, although they are nice to have. Personally, I think that a nice silky G string from ASDA for 3 quid does the job much better. Happy shopping.
