In the recent “Looks for Less” article, I showed you some look-alike knickers that might allow you to indulge your lingerie cravings at more palatable prices. Seafaerygirl asked in the comments, “Any chance you could find ‘days-of-the-week’ panties for less?”
Well, Seafaerygirl, I did find a few options! It’s not a very common design in adult lingerie, which is why the Stella McCartney set I showed you a while ago was so special. But the good news is that I was able to unearth a few less expensive alternatives. First up, a set of cotton knit boyshorts by Mary Green, with the embroidery on the hip.
The complete set is $90-$92, which isn’t a budget-breaker when you consider that you are getting a set of seven. You can find this set at HipUndies and In the Mood Intimates. Panties.com offers a brighter color scheme for $85 a set.
Figleaves UK and Figleaves US also offer their own version of low-rise satin briefs.
On the US site, the set is normally $74 and is currently on sale for $37. The UK site sells theirs for £49, and there is no sale price at this time.
The final set I found is from Austique, a brand I hadn’t heard of before. At Austique, you can buy the panties individually by day for £10 a piece. The complete set also includes a “Happy Day” pair, in case you don’t finish your laundry on time!
You can find yours at Austique.com. I hope this helps Seafaerygirl and anyone else looking for this nostalgic style!
*thank you* SO much!!! You just made my week ;))
Thanks for the alternatives, at this current time of the “recession”, I’ve had to think twice about how much I spend on sexy undies.
Please continue to keep us posted on any deals you come across. I really appreciate it and I’m sure other readers do also.
These are great undies!!
