“Gifts have ribbons, not string”
~ Vanna Bonta
And great lingerie is most definitely a gift. Both to the person wearing it and the person or people who get to admire it.
I tend to buy most of my clothes from charity shops. I like what I find there and I also like that it is a more environmentally friendly way to shop but when it comes to lingerie it is one thing where I am prepared to spend a little bit more and get something, well, essentially a little bit more as a result. Although there are still bargains to be had if you shop around such as this rather fabulous little basque that I actually bought quite a few years ago from TK Maxx (TJMaxx to you American folks) Delightfully sexy undies that are also a bargain are in my opinion the best undies there are!
