As I do not have the smallest of bust sizes I can often find it hard to find underwear on the high street, but Ann Summers is one shop I can always count on.
When I am able to find bras in my sizes, they are often plain and boring, and that's not what I want.
Luckily Ann Summers have a large variety of underwear from cute to sexy, and they come in a large variety of sizes too!
Many women will be embarrassed to be seen going into or coming out of an Ann Summers store, but I think it's worth a venture inside!
I have multiple sets of underwear from Ann Summers and so far no complaints, the underwear fits well, gives me the right support and lasts well. The underwear can make you feel instantly sexy and more confident even if nobody else is going to see it.
Although you have to pay a little bit more for Ann Summers underwear than most high street stores I have found it is worth it, especially as La Senza have closed a lot of stores. However if you wait for the sales you will get some brilliant bargains!
Im not gonna lie been in this shop a couple of times and i only made my first purchase the other day.It was a purple and black bra however they didnt have my size in panties which seemed to put a downer on things but i still got the bra. I got one of my bras in the sale and i have found before that the cup sizes seem really different to new look and la senza and they seem bigger than these shops. However i was shocked when this one fitted i didnt have to try on another size and i wasnt falling out the top or sides and also there wasnt a gap between bra and skin. The actual girls in the shop were not too pushy and i even got a 10% discount voucher and other one when i got to the till for the next time so may have to go back and find the pants. The bra is comfy to wear and doesnt hurt and isnt too tight which is brilliant it feels like your not even wearing it.
the prices i feel are ok but i tend to look more in the sale and there are normally online offers throughout the year however i do like to try underwear on as im differen sizes in different shops. This shop is good for all age ranges as some of the underwear isnt too sexy where as some you only wear for romantic nights.
I've never really had a good experience with anne summers underwear in general, i have brought many bras, and none of them are very good. I recently purchased a bra from their new collection its the one that boosts you a cup size and looks great on and on a hanger, however after just one or two times of wearing it the whole bra just seems to have died on me, the straps have gone all lank, the inserts keep falling out which is highly embarrassing!!! and to top that off the fabric in which the cups have been made from are falling apart and ripping. I am so disappointed in this as this bra cost me £22 and i have had better ones from primark. I now can not wear this bra anymore as it has lost all sexiness.
I can not really comment on the underwear as i have only really purchase one thong and that seems to be fine.
The best thing to buy in ann summers although they are very expensive is their corsets and baby dolls, these fit lovely however the sizes are very small so either try them on before you buy or buy a size bigger. I managed to buy one of £17 in the sale and it is the nicest pieces of underwear i own. My boyfriend loves it too. You should always aim to buy in the sale specially after christmas when they have 75% off it is brilliant, if you miss the sale you are looking at paying around £35-£55 for a corset/baby doll. The fabric they use to make their corsets are always nice and soft and really strong, i have no complaints about the corsets what so ever they are defiantly well worth the money plus you can customise them to use over and over again so you can have something different every time you wear it.
The baby dolls on the other hand again are made of brilliant materials but there is not much leeway in them so always try before you buy.
Ann summers is a good place to buy underwear but i do not buy my every day bras from them because they simply just do not last long enough, and they are very expensive and disappointing, which is such a shame!
To spice things up though i will always shop in there because they have something for all shapes and sizes of women and for all different tastes, whilst your in there you could always pick up a nice something for the other half too.
My boyfriend bought me a matching set of blue and black bra and pants from Ann Summers, and I have to tell you, they are my favourite underwear. They're silky, and look and feel luxurious, but they're also fairly simple, some "sexy" underwear can be a little over the top, but you can find nice classic pieces in Ann Summers if you look hard enough.
I usually have problems with bras because I'm quite small chested, but there was plenty of choice in my size (32B) and for good quality underwear, the prices were reasonable. There's been no adverse damage to the underwear after 6 months which is great as I wear them all the time.
The only issue I have is that the pants in ann summers are tiny, which aren't always so comfortable for every day use, but I knew that when I choose them, and I tend to leave that pair of pants for special occasions, and just wear cheaper black ones from other shops with the bra.
One thing I found annoying about my experience in Ann Summers is the lack of changing rooms. There were two different couples, and the men were buying their lady friends a corset for Christmas I guess. Anyway, they took so long trying things on and sending their partners back for more stuff that they really need to invest in a few more rooms. Was waiting around 10 -15 minutes which isn't fantastic. This was in milton keynes so it's a fairly busy shop that would benefit.
Overal, I'd definately request presents from there again, the quality is really good compared to primark or asda for example, and because underwear is the base your outfit goes on, it needs to be right or you won't look right. So it's worth looking in Ann Summers for a mixture of naughty and simple pieces.
I would recommend ann summers to some one who wants to buys things like :sexy underwear or if they wanted sex toys, body lotions, massage oils, condoms, sexy out fits and sexy underwear. I will mention that even tho they range from a size 6 to a size 28 they can be very expensive for people who are used to shopping in primark for their underwear. The quality of their products are brilliant, i have purchased a few outfits from a ann summers party my self and when i recieved the products i was really happy with the quality. i have washed my out fits on many occasions and the material has'nt ripped or faded. I am going to give the material quality a ten out of ten. The price i would give a four out of ten because i personally think it is a little pricey, but then again you are paying for what you get. I would rather go into ann summers and purchase my products beacuse i know they are going to last for some time and not be going in the bin after a week or two.
I wil start by saying that Ann Summers does have some lovely underwear, I have two knicker & bra sets from there - one I bought myself and one bought for me by my boyfriend (who actually managed to buy the right size!! - and they are both lovely. Each is satin effect with black lace and they really are very pretty as well as being sexy.
My problem with the underwear at Ann Summers is that some of it can be quite cheap looking and feeling. I have bought a couple of thongs from there before, which haven't been cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but have been nothing near as nice as cheaper ones I have bought from La Senza or even from New Look!
It is just a bit hit and miss. If the tackier underwear was cheaper that would be one thing but it seems that whilst quality varies from item to item the prices are all fairly, well, pricey!
Novelty type underwear seems to be the worst culprit for this, try buying a thong with feathers on or something along those lines and you'll find the quality just isn't great, they are scratchy and just cheap feeling and yet you will find the price doesn't reflect this.
So basically my advice would be to not assume that because it's from Ann Summers that it will be of high quality. If you want the nice, practical yet pretty / sexy underwear then it is worth the price tag but if you want novelty / naughty type underwear you are better searching elsewhere for something that is cheaper instead of just looking cheaper.
If you're looking to dress to impress your man in the bedroom then this is the place to go. Focusing on the underwear I think it's beautiful. There are a number of ranges such as mild but sexy lingerie for the bedroom, lingerie for everyday wear and super saucy stuff with peepholes, lack of crotches and much more.
Ann summers do a fuller bust range up to 42g!! so even the bigger ladies who have trouble finding attractive bras in their size are in with a good chance here.
I myself own a few sets from here, nothing super saucy but a few sexy little numbers. In my opinion the fit of the bras are ok but to be honest I am a funny size anyway so usually have to wear the nearest size. However, the ones I have have a lot of support and are simply beautiful, many of them have lacy detail and are in deep reds. You can rule out bland and plain in this shop! The one I own was about £16 but there are always sales and offers on so if you are patient you could find a bargain.
The knickers also fit well, most are Available in sizes 8 - 24. Luckily they make matching underwear for the bra, usually a choice of thong or hot pants etc so there is a nice range available. You can also choose your size which is a huge relief. A lot of sets come 'as a set' so they assume that because you are larger in the bust you must be larger in the bottom - as we know that's not always the case! So Ann summers allow you to match your choice of underwear in the size that suits you. My set cost around £6. there are good and bad points about having separate prices for items in a 'set' yes it means that if you want matching bra and knickers you pay out more but it also means that if you only want the bra you aren't paying out more for something that you don't want.
Personally I am not a fan of thongs, I feel you really have to have the right shape to wear them. If you feel comfortable then by all means go ahead but the women in the brochure are airbrushed...no sagging in sight and if I am preparing to bare all in front of my other half I need to feel that I look good. Thongs just don't work for me.
I have also got one corset from here. Admittedly after having my son it is now a bit of a squeeze to get into but luckily the ruched material on the front panel hides anything that needs to be hidden. The material is lovely, the colour is deep and sensual and according to the brochure you could wear this under normal clothes or with a pair of jeans on a night out!! I think ill stick to the bedroom thanks ha ha. Anyway, it is a corset but has 3 rows of hooks on the back -like a bra fastening but multiplied by 20. This means that you can choose a comfortable size. It does also mean, however that it can be quite a trick to get it on unaided! Mine was quite expensive at about £40 but it has lasted a long time. No not because it has been hiding in my cupboard either! Ha ha the only downside to these is the sizing. It is based on bra size which is quite difficult to go by when you are trying to fit into a full torso piece. Again they assume that small or large busts mean the same size waist and this isn't true. I am quite a large size bust but have a very slender waist so I either had to have one that fitted my waist well but pushed my top half out as the bra was too small, or have the cup fitting well but the waist baggy. I ended up with one that is about a size and a half too small all over so that I could squeeze everything in (just) but it was the only option. Admittedly I don't quite know how they would solve this problem with items like this.
The corset came with a matching thong grr but I thought I would give it a try and it came with suspender clips, however some don't so you have to buy these separately. Again this is good if you don't want all of the accessories but if the other half points out a picture from the catalogue you couldn't really skip on the whole outfit or it would be like going to work with no trousers on. Needless to say this sexy bedroom lingerie can be quite pricey, £40 for the corset, £8 for the Thong £14 for the suspender belt and £6 for the stockings! (Roughly not exact prices)
As I said it can set you back a bit but if you want it all to match so you get the look right then it is worth it. It does last a while - as long as it's not ripped off in the throes of passion! Ha ha
The last item I have is a halter neck chemise meant for sleeping in. it is satin so hangs nicely. However, again the sizing is off. This time it is sized based on clothes sizes i.e. 8,10,12... though this time it is actually 8, 10-12, 14-16... this causes the problem of again suggesting the body size matches the bra size and also I would be more of an 8-10, not 10-12. It doesn't seem a lot but when it comes to trying to look sexy the fit really makes a difference. Being halter neck and sleepwear there is no bra support so a little bit hard to keep it in the right place. I was given this as a valentines present, I wore it once and we both agreed it should never be seen again. Really unflattering.
I think that about covers my underwear range from Ann summers. I haven't dabbled with the crotch less or peephole versions. An ex once thought it would be romantic to present me with some home-made crotch less undies! He basically took a pair of scissors and attacked my favourite pair! One of the many reasons why he is (thankfully) an ex!
Overall I do like the Ann summers underwear. Aside from the sizing difficulties it really is beautiful underwear. Yes it can be expensive but it's worth it if it makes you feel amazing. I would advise anyone to try it on for size before buying things like corsets and make him get a gift receipt when he ventures there for Valentines Day. I guarantee you would find something you love in there so if you haven't been before...now is the time!
Well im a man so i cant comment on the comfort or sizes or style etc etc etc of the ann summers underwear collection as i can honestly say i have never worn it nor have i ever been tempted too, (thought id add that in there before i get some smart comments) however my partner does own quite a few sets of ann summers underwear so i thought id give it a review based on what ive seen.
Now to be honest i have seen that much of it because as we all know it only ends up on the floor, but what i have seen of it i have to say it is very sexy!!!!!
I have bought underwear for her myself from ann summers for xmas presents etc and i do like the styles alot, theres a great variety from comfort to kinky to modern to things that i can even mention on here but all of it does look like good quality items and they have seemed to last my girlfriend for quite a while, can defiantly tell the difference in quality when shes wearing something else such as her primarni ones.
If your a woman go buy some and surprise your man im sure hell appreciate it and you'll have a nice set of quality underwear,
If your a guy go get your mrs some shell love you for it and if your lucky she might even give you a private viewing ;)
They might cost a little more than other shops but its defiantly worth the extra cash for the quality
I first encountered Ann Summers when shopping for corsets (with my mum of all people!) Now I'm a little older, I have an appreciation for good quality underwear that doesn't cost the earth, and Ann Summers fits the bill. Their underwear is properly sized, and goes up to at least a 20 in most of it, allowing us with bigger chests/bellies to find sexy underwear that looks good. And the underwear isn't the only good bit! Down the back of the shop lives the sex toys, and I can say from personal experience that these are absolutely fantastic, if a little pricey. I own a silver bullet and have had other vibrators from there and other places, and Ann Summers is best for quality, battery life, but can be a little pricey, but it is worth it. The vibrators are well shaped and sized, and don't cause discomfort when used correcty (also when used with lubrication which can also be brought there) If I want any sexy underwear from my bf, I send him to Ann Summers as I know he'll get the right size and I'll get something I like!
Ann Summers underwear varies. You can purchase Knickerbox cute girly underwear - right up to faux leather bondage underwear. They do provide underwear for every occasion. Some of their bodices are suitable to wear with your jeans as a top for a night out, so this just shows how nice and what good quality they are.
Ann Summers has a bit of a reputation amongst some of the older generations, mainly because it is essentially a sex shop. They are doing a lot to dispell this reputation. With their beautiful ranges of underwear. You can usually purchase either a thong, or full brief with each bra, dependant on what you are most comfortable with. And contrary to popular belief, not all of their panties are crotchless!
Ann Summers provides its underwear in a wide range of sizes, from 6 up to 22/24, and also out sized bras too which can be ordered in if not in stock. Anyone can wear their sexy undies!!
I love Ann summers its great, basically a sex shop selling knickers bras and toys from vibrators to cock rings personally I love the shop for the outfits they sell. There great for making you feel good about your self there very flattering and are a nice treat not only for you but for your partner as well. A lot of women also use them on hen nights and as fancy dress outfits.
Ann summers has a wide variety of costumes some are no long available as they have been discontinued such as a bangcock babe, an oriental style dress in black and red with the chop sticks to put your hair back very flattering but no longer in stock retailed at 25 pound this is one of the cheaper ones but can still be found cheaper if you try on eBay where most of the discontinued stock can still be found.
The dress up range they are selling can be found on the website www.annsummers.co.uk where you'll find such costumes as the ooh la la maid retailed at £40 pounds one of the more expensive dress up sets this includes a halter neck dress with the apron a collar and a hat, it also has detachable suspenders.
The good thing about the costumes is there's also a men's range so where you mite get a sexy police women for the ladies retailed at 35 pounds for a police dress, hat and tie you'll can buy a men's sexy police outfit consisting of pants sating "lets be aving ya" hand cuffs, a truncheon, wrist cuffs and a collar with attached tie retailed at £12.
A bit of a downside with Ann summers is there sizes tend to be typically smaller than the normal sizes but not always im usually a 14-16 so tend to buy an 18-20 which most the time is fine but then sometimes I find I need a smaller size and have all the trouble of making a return.
All the outfits ive purchased have been very good quality and worth the money not only for girlie nights out but for in the bedroom as well. I recommend this to any girl wanting to feel good about themselves or just as a little treat for there partner and recommended to any guy wanting to please he's girl, to buy her a nice classy underwear set from Ann summers don't be shy all the girls in the shop are lovely and helpful and you'll love the costumes too.
Having worked for Ann Summers some time ago, I used to love the perks of having discount on their items and more than likely my commission that I used to earn went on underwear for myself. Having not worked for them for a while, I do miss that extra discount, however I cannot stop myself from going into the shop when I am up town to have a mooch around and she what new ranges they have in store.
Having an Ann Summers party and ordering from the catalogue is a lot different to going in the shop and buying in store, the prices are slightly higher in the shop, however the ranges do differ and you can pick up some different ranges than those that are advertisied in the catalogue.
Ann Summers specialise in sexy underwear, something that will spice up your lovelife if your partner came home from work to see you in one of their sexy numbers. The products I feel are very good quality, I have never had any problems with the quality of their underwear, and I never had any complaints when I was an organiser which says something.
I find that some of the products are a little expensive. You normally pay in and around the region of £25 for a bra, and for a matching pair of briefs, around £10, or thong £8, however the ranges that they do are hard to say no to as they have a lot of designs that you are not going to pick up anywhere else because they are unique to Ann Summers.
I do find their sizes rather small though. I am a 34D bra and when buying from Ann Summers I find I have to go into a DD cup size and for the bigger woman you will struggle to find something as sexy as they only cater up to DD in most of the ranges.
I love the Pyjama sets that they do, the vest and short sets are really comfortable if you like to wear something in bed, however I find that I lounge around the house in mine and they are reasonably priced at £20 for the full set, and they add a little bit of sexiness to the word pyjamas. Also, the night skirts are very nice and majority of these you could wear in bed or as a summer dress because they are quite pretty and there is nothing that speaks night time about them.
I love Ann Summers, I seem to spend quite a lot of money on underwear from there stores as well as places like La Senza but there is nothing like feeling sexy in your underwear.
Iv been reading on this site the good and the bad points that people have towards ann summers.
Iv recently become an ann summers rep, and it is hard work pulling in parties, and building up a good kit, but its do-able!
ann summers change their ranges every 6 months - and the reps all update their lines with new items from the catalogue.
iv sold some wierd stuff the past few months since iv been doing this, and its not as bad as you think!
what i want from all of you is honest opinions on the ranges ann summers have, what you like/dislike, and what can be improved. i feed this all back to my unit organiser and together we can all make ann summers much more enjoyable than what it is already!
please, help us to help you.
if you have any questions, i will forward these on, and try and get answers.
thank you for your time.
After realising that my review was a little short I have decided to add a little more information so that you can more easily make up your own mind about Ann Summers products.
I am only talking about one product that I bought which did not satisfy me, maybe its just this one product that has flaws, maybe not, but here is my story...
I was at college one day in a city called Carlisle. I had around £10 in my pocket and I thought I would buy my girlfriend some sexy underwear for later on that night. I popped into Ann Summers for a peek at their range of super sexy lingerie.
Unfortunately, £10 does not go very far in Ann Summers let me tell you. The choice I had was very limited (my own fault for having no money although you can buy a few pairs of underwear for £10 at La Senza). I was looking at a number of different coloured thongs each with its own unique style. Pink and fluffy, black and metallic, red with diamonds and a leather thong too. Each thong was set on a dummy bottom. I gazed at each pair and finally decided that the most sexy one to me was the black thong with a metal ring on the back and metal chains on the front.
I picked up the size that I wanted and bought the thong for an exact £10 at the desk.
Now, before I go on I have to say that Ann Summers do have good customer service, I was asked a number of times if I needed help, not too many times so that its annoying but enough for me to realise that they really do want to help you out. Unfortunately, this is the only positive thing I can say about the shop itself.
Later on that night I gave the thong to my girlfriend in the original Ann Summers bag that I was given. She changed out of her underwear into the new super sexy underwear I had just bought. To my dismay the metal chains on the front of the underwear snapped within 10 minutes of wearing them. I couldn't believe it, the chains were actually joined to the thong itself using about 3 black threads, these snap easily, 3 threads holding metal chains to a thong. Alrite, maybe its my fault for not looking at the thong correctly, but I'm a guy. I don't really know what to look for, I just go for what I think is sexy.
I can tell you now, I won't be buying many items of clothing from there ever again. I will only buy from there if my girlfriend comes with me. From now on I'm going to shop at La Senza, my girlfriend recommends. She said I could get a few pairs of underwear for a tenner at La Senza and they won't break within 10 minutes.
I'm not taking the underwear back because I've lost the receipt. At least its still a pair of underwear even without the metal chains on the front, but they are just boring black but a little silky which feels nice on the skin.
I didn't come here to write a general opinion about Ann Summers lingerie, I just want to tell you what happened to me and to be careful about the quality of products at Ann Summers.
Great customer service but unfortunately the quality of the products does not match the price you pay for them, far too expensive.
Recently i was invited to an ann summers party,I was not at all excited, as i see it once you have been to one you have been to them all. but i must admit i was planning on ordeing some underware. I went to a party about a year ago and i was really impressed with there underware,i bought a couple of bra and pant sets, i do admit they were a bit pricey but they were very nice sets so i thought what the hell.And bought then anyway. Now a year down the line they are still like new, i don't ware them all time time only for special occasions, if you know what i mean. but they wash very well and they are cofortable to ware. So this time i bought a few more sets, i got a set called thrill,It is an underwired bra and matching thong,With delicate bow detail it came in royal blue or black. I also got another set but i won't go on about that. The thing i like about ann summers is they cater for all sizes, for example i have quite a big bust but most department stores do not stock pretty bra and breif sets for my size, so i have to go else where. I have found that the ann summers shops are more expensive than buying for a party. If you are looking for something that extra bit special i would recommend ann summers. As they may be expensive but they are good value for money,as they last forever. Ann summers also stocks night ware and various dress tops, which are all very good products. as i said they are all very good value for money.
