I have to be honest, I’m a skeptic when it comes to buying lingerie in online auctions. Some of my friends have tried to convince me to give it a go, but I’ve always been somewhat scared to get my hopes up about an item and receiving a fake non-piece that would leave me behind sitting in a corner feeling stupid about myself, wishing I had just shopped at an online shop or in one of my regular boutiques… I may be one of the lucky ones that can spend a decent budget on lingerie, but still, bargains are bargains, so I was enchanted by Kelly’s post on her blog Hyacinths and Biscuits where she talks about a positive surprise she had when buying a bra off Ebay:
“In the picture it looks like just some kind of plain fun pink bra with a black ribbon or two. But it is so much more amazing. In real life, there are pinstripes on the little bugger, and where it looks like there’s a black stripe on the band? That’s laced-up ribboning! Normally if I recieved an item from Ebay that was not as described, I would be pissed. But this was just an amazing surprise. Yay Ebay!”
That sounds good, no? Well, I might consider trying an Ebay bargain myself, even though there is some bad news from Kelly’s front. The bra isn’t half as comfortable as she had hoped… That’s another Ebay-con: there’s no returns possible. Oh the doubt!
