Would You Want To Get A Pair Of Panties In The Mail?
Personally, I’m not into lingerie being given as a gift. If my boyfriend gave me a super fancy bra and panty set — one that was clearly to be worn in the confines of the bedroom and not under regular clothing because all the bells and whistles would make for unsightly panty lines — for Valentine’s Day, I would be polite about it, but would feel kind of gypped. Talk about a gift for the giver! Anyway, our friends at The Gloss have alerted me to an even creepier version of this selfish gift-giving tradition. Knickermail, which of course launched just in time for this holiest of holidays, let’s the buyer pick which color panties they want to send and write a personalized message, and then off they go to the recipient. Frankly, I don’t want a totally random pair of tacky satin panties landing on my doorstep. For starters, who is going to be sending these? I would hope a long-distance boyfriend, intent on sending lingerie to his beloved, would take the time to pick out specific pieces that would suit her style and his boner’s taste. And a boyfriend who doesn’t live far away would just deliver his gift in person, no? The only other type of guy who would send panties in the mail is a creepy stalker, right? This is more like a KnickerFAIL to me. [The Gloss]
