A weird one… Just because

17 Oct

When a PR asked me if I would like to review a new range of knickers, called ‘Caught Short’ I thought, well this is quite a strange one so why not! The idea behind Caught Short panties is that when you are on the go you may want to buy a spare pair. The range of briefs has a tagline ‘Any time, any place, anywhere….’ They come in three colour ways – black, white and nude and will (I am told) soon be available across the country in convenience stores, gyms, hotels, spas, petrol garages, vending machines, pharmacies and supermarkets. I have tried and tested these little beauties and let me tell you they are actually very comfortable. The material is of a surprisingly good quality too – top marks on both counts!

Comfortable but plain

The only thing that I cannot fathom is who exactly will buy these? Ok, I have been known to carry a spare pair of knickers in my handbag. You know when you are meeting your partner right after work and the ‘oh so sexy’ undies to match your posh bra are just so uncomfortable? Well I wear comfy ones to work and do a switch before the date. But, these panties are quite plain. I have considered that maybe these are an essential purchase on those ‘walks of shame’ where a girl has stayed out all night and wants to freshen up before work. Though if a girl is up to that sort of wild partying, I doubt she’d much care about fresh knickers the next day anyway!

Verdict:
8/10 for comfort and quality
5/10 for concept

Gifts for him…

Gifts for him…

It can be hard deciding what to buy that special man in your life (after all who can afford an iPad or whatever gadget he is really hankering after!) All too often women rely on the good old staple gift of underwear or socks. Luckily I have found a way to make this a bit more exciting!

Jockey (www.jockeyuk.com) have a really fun festive range this year. My favourite is the Jockey Countryside Quebec Short Trunk (aka snowflake pants!) which can be bought at www.deadgoodundies.com. They are tight, they are tiny, and the snowflakes make for the perfect excuse to give them to your man. At around £13 I don’t think they are badly priced either.

Well hello Mr Snowflake Pants...

Another must have in the dreary winter weather is the Jockey Body Suit (aka Sexy Onesie!) Imagine smart, tight underwear seamlessly attached to an easy to unbutton t-shirt. Quirky thermal wear at its best, after all the hot men we know need to stay warm this winter too! (Please note the model in the image does not come with these gifts – boo!) The only drawback is at around £28 it would be cheaper just to get some undies and a separate t-shirt. Though that wouldn’t be as much fun…

Fasten up those buttons, you may get cold!

Well I certainly cannot wait to give these gifts to my boyfriend this Christmas, and unwrap them myself!

Verdict: A very sexy 9/10
