My M&S Knicker Haul

Have you ever heard of, or shopped at good old M&S  (Marks & Spencers for the uninitiated) in the UK?

Now all of my English friends will probably switch off at this point. When you know something is at your finger tips you tend to take its fabulousness for granted.

I however, do not. M & S is one of the only stores I truly miss from good old Blighty.

Where else can you go and buy a pair of knickers, your evening meal and a pair of bang on trend shoes all under one roof?

M & S – that’s where.

There is something  so comforting about knowing where to get your knickers and bras from don’t you agree? – Its one of the few things I have struggled with since moving to this beautiful country two and a half years ago.

Yes there are plenty of places to buy undies, but for some reason I can’t seem to find exactly what I’m looking for. Call me picky if you like, but where is the choice and full size range?

Also, I love nice underwear but I don’t want to have to pay top dollar for the privilege.

Buying a matching bra and knickers set can set you back a small fortune here and I just don’t get why something so small, has to be so darn expensive.

That’s where M&S (in my humble opinion) have it completely covered.

Not long ago they launched their new website which makes navigating the site lots easier too.

The choice is also pretty amazing:

Bra’s:

  • Minimiser
  • Multi-way
  • Push-up
  • T-shirt
  • Non-wired
  • Post-surgery
  • DD+ Bras
  • Sports
  • Bridal
  • Silk & Lace Collection
  • Angel first lingerie for teenagers

Knickers:

  • Bikini brief
  • Brazilian
  • French Knickers
  • High-waisted
  • Midi
  • Full
  • Shapewear
  • Thongs (not for your feet)
  • Short

Basically every style and shape you can possibly need.

Quality? Fan-bloody-tastic.

Here a small selection of what my M & S haul included:

My M & S Knicker Haul

I was in desperate need of my basic everyday undies. Lace-free T-shirt bras to wear for work along with knickers that stayed put instead of riding the hell up!

I know so many people who are dismissive about buying the correct undies – they have the anything will do approach.

But in my books undies are the foundation to looking and feeling good in any outfit.

I also can not stand VPL (visible panty line). Or underwear that is too tight, too itchy and won’t stay where it’s intended to be.

So to stop tormenting myself by continually trying to find the perfect undies here in Australia from now on I will continue to virtually hot-tail myself back to M&S via the  interwebs to get my knicker and bra fix.

But the very best bit? FREE DELIVERY TO AUSTRALIA

I placed my order on the Saturday it was delivered on the Thursday. Yes. Thursday.

What is there not to love about that kind of service?

So if you , like me are struggling with your undies give M & S a try – you won’t look back.

Not only did I get exactly what I wanted, I also saved quite a bit of cash in the process.

On a slightly different note and to bring a smile to your face:

I don’t think I have ever mentioned that I’ve hankerd after a onesie since last winter…

Lets just say Mr IM is not overly excited at the thought of me sitting on the sofa in a giant baby-gro.

But while I was ordering my knickers I noticed the clickable link to the onesie’s. Within a second and before I had time to chicken out, it was in my basket.

Before I knew it, bang I did it again, but this time  I had also ordered one for Mr IM 😉

I couldn’t stop smiling.

When my happy knicker parcel arrived, the box was huge. I had forgotten about the surprises.

Not sure Mr IM is as excited as me about our giant baby-gro’s yet, but I think he will enthusiastically embrace the concept once he starts to shiver!

My M & S Knicker Haul

Apologies for the poor image quality – I could not control my giggles!

Happy Friday you gorgeous lot. Have a wonderful weekend.

How do you get on trying to find the perfect undies? Have you ever brought from M & S?

Also, come on spill the beans, do you have a onesie?

    I have been unable to find knickers that I like as much as M & S after 7 years here, so I order minr online. I normally buy the hi- leg microfibres ones. If you don’t mind me asking, what are the ones in the photo ? Thanks !! PS love the onesies !!

  • I loathe underwear shopping – I’ve had some very bad experiences (specifically when it comes to bra shopping) where I have walked out of the changeroom in tears. Love your haul and love the onesies too – they look so comfy! I think I will have to give M&S a go. Nothing like shopping from the comfort of my couch!

    • Oh you poor thing.That’s no good gorgeous girl. You would love M&S the ladies are trained so well. They are helpful, kind and totally understand the meaning of sensitive. Check out their bra guide on line. If it helps I fall in to one of two sizes either a 34D or 36C and generally wear a size 12 in tops.
      Couch shopping is also my favourite pass-time xx

  • Susan Cumming

    So agree with you about good old M & S! Been here for 15 years and haven’t found anything to compare. I will give the online option a go having read your comments. Now I’m looking forward to comfy undies that won’t show under my clothes. Thanks Bev

    • Its a pleasure Susan! Having the free delivery just makes the purchase price so much better. It was super-fast too. They use DHL – I even changed the delivery address and my box of goddies still arrived on time!
      You will be wearing your comfy M&S undies before you know it – how exciting! xxx

  • Sophisticated Mumma

    Loving the onesies! Very cute! I STILL buy my undies from M&S. I don’t know why but there is nothing here in the fabrics and pretty styles that are of a reasonable price. I have some of exactly what you have shown above and they are comfy, wash well and don’t show up under tighter clothes…what’s not to like? I will never give up M&S undies!!! Xx

    • Awwwww thanks lovely! I am so excited to be the proud owner of a onesie!
      I hear you loud and clear on the M&S front, I think I forgot just how fabulous they are for a while and tried to buy everything here instead. Not anymore though, I’m hooked. I also love the new website, so much easier to navigate and its so responsive. I do love free delivery as well! xx

  • Petra

    I agree with Lisa, you and hubby actually look quite good in them – they must be great quality! With regards M&S, I went there when I was on holiday, and also mum (who is English) raves about them still after 50 years of being away from the mother land! I will investigate on-line because I, too, find it super hard to find good underwear here – not sure if it’s only a Qld thing or an Aussie thing. Whenever I go to NZ on hols I always stock up over there because somehow they seem to have a better selection and pricing!

    • Petra I can’t tell you just how pleased I am with the quality. The fabric is gorgeous, soft and warm. I took to mine like a duck to water…Mr IM is still adjusting to his!
      I’d be happy to give you the codes of my favourite styles at M & S if you are unsure which ones to go for. I go for the high leg (full pant) and the brazillian style. I can also recommend their tights, clothes and shoes. – infact everything is perfection at M & S! I’m that happy with my haul I’m placing another order today!

  • Lisa Mckenzie

    No onsie but my 6ft4son has one in a leopard print as well as his girlfriend when it is freezing they wear them ,quite cute in a my big baby sort of way ,have you ever watched embarrassing addictions Bev it is on gem and one night there was this huge man /boy with a nappy and a bottle in a cot,grossed me out I tell you,sorry a bit off topic!!!

    • Sophisticated Mumma

      Hehe Lisa, the embarrassing addiction thing made me chuckle!

      • Me too – the visual picture in my mind is not good at all though! xx

        • Lisa Mckenzie

          The visual is worse than you could even think lovely he wasn’t cute at all!

      • Lisa Mckenzie

        It was the weirdest thing I have ever watched but I just could not stop watching,he even got his onsie custom made and he was a big boy!I did not realise people have these strange fetishes!!

    • Lisa I bet your son looks a picture in his leopard print onesie! They are so snuggly and warm, I can’ t wait to be as snug as a bug in a rug in mine….Mr IM on the other hand hasn’t quite forgiven me for posting the picture yet – I think he thought I was only joking!!!
      Thank goodness I didn’t see the guy in the nappy with the bottle – what’s that all about hey? You have made me laugh though 😉
      Definitely have a look at M&S for your undies they are THE best I promise you. xxx Thanks so much for stopping by gorgeous xxx

      • Lisa Mckenzie

        I will have a look lovely they sound divine and I agree it is hard to find comfy undies here!
