Jen promises to share a good lingerie story today, which reminded me of my own little trip to this week to Victoria's Secret. I love the store, it's the Gap for undies you know? I get these freebie cards in the mail from time to time for some item, usually for a small perfume or pair of underwear. I am usually not disappointed with the item because a.) it's free and b.) it's usually something I will use. And the promo always works on me because when I'm in the store, I almost always purchase something in addition to the freebie. This month's card was for a "free panty". I'm thinking a cotton, comfy,pretty pair of underwear. Instead it was this: This picture is deceptive but it's not a panty at all really, but a stiff nylon cord with a piece of scratchy nylon shaped in a triangle attached It's NOT a thong, thongs can be comfy and pretty and cotton and show no panty lines. Thongs are fine (except for the bikini kind which I hate). I think they call these things V-strings. Whatever. Instead of the flower pictured here it has a rhinestone VS insignia AND is the most cheaply, poorly made item of ANY sort of clothing I've seen in a while. Marked 16.00, there was truly about 0.25 cents worth of material on there including the rhinestones. Not cotton, not comfy, not pretty, not wear. Definitely not buy.
