thousand dollar knickers?  No way.

Out of the house all morning yesterday and only back late in day. So never touched this puter. Just too damn exhausted.
So.
Had company over this morning and once they left and I put together dinner, booted and had this pointed out to me.

Not a section of the paper easy to ignore and they run this sort of thing a lot.  Much of it may be okay nothing to get all blog excited about.
But this get my attention.  Wife saw it first and asked me if I thought I could ID just by site what I thought the undies might sell for.
Well, I never had to buy ladies garments especially these, and frankly I didn’t see anything I thought any sane women (and there might be a few males of that type) who would spend what I was told some of these cost. Yikes!
Why would any lady spend £700 on these skimpy things? That sum in American dollars would come to .... $1,124.00 I just refuse to believe that anyone would, altho I am aware that there are many that could.
A thousand bucks for a pair of knickers?  No way.

Oh but wait. These are not just any knickers. No, these are “designer” knickers. Really.

OK so .... I thought it would be fun to share it with you folks.

The cheapest set is £7, which in American dollars is $11.24.

See if you can pick out the least expensive pair and the ones that cost a grand.  I would bet you can’t and if you did it would only be a wild guess.

Click on the cat for the answers if you care, or if you only want to see the same pretty model in seven different pair of undies in much larger size photos.

So which glam undies cost £7 - and which cost £700? The results might surprise you...

As women invest more and more in designer underwear, does it really look any better than its bargain rivals?
We put it to the test

By India Sturgis

Beautiful lingerie can lift the mood as quickly as it can the bust. No wonder a recent survey revealed that 92 per cent of us feel more confident when we’re wearing a matching set of bra and briefs beneath our outer clothes.

But as women invest more and more in designer underwear - up to £450 a year on average ($ 723.650 ) - does posh underwear really look any better than its bargain rivals?

We hid the labels on nine pairs of matching underwear costing from £7 to £700, and asked model Tali Leggett (a dress size 10 and bust size 32D) to try them on for fit and shape, before fabric expert Mairwen Jones blind-tested them using a textiles microscope. The results might surprise you.

Gadzooks ! Women spend that much on underwear in a year?  Crivens. That just can not be correct.  $7 hundred? A year? Can’t be.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
