Ladies, are you fed up by the cost and hassle of buying underwear on the High Street? Looking for a pair of posh pants, a brilliant bra or a cracking corset? Don?t get your knickers in a twist! Middleleaze based Wendy Trigg has the answer, writes Kate Williams.
Wendy has just launched www.black-thong.com, an online, mail-order lingerie company that caters for every size, shape, budget and occasion.
Describing the stimulatation behind her business venture, Wendy said, "it all started last year at a salsa party on my honeymoon in Cuba. I took part in a limbo competition wearing a completely inappropriate outfit – a short denim skirt and a black thong.
"When the photos were developed, my husband Matt joked that they should be posted on a website called black thong.com" The name stayed with her and six months later when Wendy decided to pack in her office job for something more exciting, she thought it would be the perfect title for her great new business idea.
She said, "web purchase is so easy and it?s less expensive than the High Street. Because we use UK manufacturers and have small overheads we can keep the prices low without sacrificing on quality or style. And men can spare their blushes and use the site to buy underwear for their partner in the privacy of their own homes."
Despite being launched only a few weeks ago, Wendy is pleased with the interest that has been shown in the site and puts the success down to the variety and privacy that buying online brings.
"We have something for every size, shape and style on the site, as well as a cuddly temptations collection featuring plus-size lingerie. There is some beautiful bridal underwear and plenty of other lingerie to take on your honeymoon – maybe even to Cuba."
