Buyer Beware



Waliki Readers! How's about some mid week lingerie talk? As you know, I sometimes purchase lingerie on Ebay. I think I mentioned that I had bought a garter belt on there a while back (last year sometime). The item was said to be by Victoria's Secret, looked nice enough and the price was right so I bid on it. When the item arrived (promptly I might add), I checked and it indeed had a VS label in it. I doubt though, that it is indeed a genuine VS item. For one thing, the clasps for the stockings are PLASTIC, something I've never seen on a VS garter belt (they always use metal clasps). Also, the sizing was off, smaller than the usual items I'd bought from VS in the same size. I do like the garter belt and for the price I can't complain, but I wish they hadn't misrepresented the item in the listing, makes me feel cheated somehow. I don't really know if the seller was aware the item was a fake or not, so I didn't hold it against them. Anyway, just wanted to let y'all know about my experience so you have a better idea of things if you shop on the Bay too. Ask questions before bidding! That's the item pictured above and a pic of the plastic clip. I have to say that I actually really like this garter belt (I have a thing for garter belts, in case you hadn't noticed), notice the miniature pearl design at the front waistband and the lovely lace inserts on the front panel.

It may have been a real VS item. I've noticed that they've been using plastic as well.

Sheen: Thanks for letting us know. I was completely unaware they used plastic clips.
