“ Brand: Matalan / Type: Underwear „
One thing my Mum buys me every year as a little Christmas gift is underwear. Usually she buys me sensible bloomers...you know the ones the apple catchers that you come all the way up to your chin kind so I was happily surprised when I received 3 pairs of these and looking on the Matalan website she paid £6.00 for 3 pairs them for me or you can buy them individually at £2.50 a pair. I actually did buy a another pair of these in the sales just after Christmas too and they cost me £1.25 a pair! These are available in black, purple, aubergine, red, white and blue and my Mum bought me a red, a black and a white pair of these and I got the purple pair myself as I mentioned in the sales and I have to admit I fell in love with the red pair! Style wise these are of course a French knicker which means they cover up your bum and everything pretty well and these come to my belly button and have a gently elasticated waist which is very comfortable and I have never found these to roll down or move. They are made from 92% Polyamide 8% Elastane with a 100% Cotton Gusset and look and feel like soft lace with sections being a little see through and each pair have a triangle of material acting like a gusset. They com in sizes 8-20 and are easy to take care of. They are fully machine washable and tumble dry safe and never once have I found any of mine to fade in colour or go bobbly or anything adverse so far through any of that. However although I loved the look of these, found them to be true to size and everything I have to say I feel that these are totally bad value for money! All of the knickers have seams running down the front centre to the back of them. I wore the red pair once, washed them and allowed them to dry naturally and went to re wear them another day. It was only when I put them on I noticed a whacking big hole through the material that is irreparable due to the kind of the material that they are. Ok I thought never mind its only one pair....but no! Another pair did the same thing after being worn a couple of times to so robust....they are not! Its a shame about the quality of these, they looked really nice and I thought even at full price that they wasn't expensive but they are too expensive to fall apart after one wear so sadly these get the thumbs down from me! Only available from Matalan stores.
