Pretty Secrets for pretty women!

And...er...for not so pretty ones too! ^_^

Well, today I review an item of requirement for women of all ages/shapes/sizes - the indispensible lingerie, the purchasing of which demands a lot of thought & care.
Generally, I buy my lingerie from renowned/authorised retail outlets because quality & assurance is of utmost importance for an item that we have such an intimate relationship with. The fit, the material & the quality has to be proper for me to make it my second skin.
But in this day & age of a booming (and more so every moment) online shopping industry, the virtual world beckons & tempts us to ditch the trip to the mall and buy even the most delicate of items from the comfy confines of our home. I have been succumbing to the lazy pleasures of online shopping slowly, buying first jewelry, accessories, books, beauty products & finally clothes from the various Indian as well as international shopping portals sprouting up like wild mushrooms all over the world wide web.
One fine day, I came across PrettySecrets.com and for once, I was tempted to buy even lingerie with a decisive click of the mouse. :)

Pretty Secrets is a one-stop online shopping portal for women's lingerie, shapewear, nightwear, swimwear, workout clothes, innerwear accessories and even a select range of beachwear! The website boasts of a handpicked array of products from well-known brands such as Enamor, Bw!tch, Lovable, Triumph, Peri Peri etc. along with the in-house brand Pretty Secrets itself. What's more, most of these brands are available at awesome offers & great discounts, thus absolutely beating the stores at the game!

So, when these guys over at Pretty Secrets contacted me to review their website, my joy, of course, knew no bounds! But, as they say, too much of a good thing is never good. Well....for me, the worse part was having to pick out a couple of products from amongst the innumerable tempting options filling the website. After hours (spanning over a period of not one, but two nights!) of choosing & picking, I zeroed in on some pieces which had me drooling at sight!
The checkout & payment options -  were also easy to navigate & user-friendly and the whole process was completed in a matter of mere minutes. What's more, the home page also woos you with flashing promises of discreet packaging & free shipping!!! I was excited, to say the least!

Unfortunately, almost 2 weeks after I had placed my order, when I was almost wondering whether they start making the products from scratch only after the orders are placed; one day I got a call from one of their customer service managers. She very apologetically informed me that Fedex (the courier service) had supposedly lost the parcel in transit and have not been responding to their frequent follow-ups about the same. She was very sweet and sounded genuinely hassled by the lack of responsibility on the courier service provider's part and she promised me that she'll get a new set of products shipped out to me ASAP.
True to her words, the next day itself, I got an e-mail informing me that my order was on the way and 3 days later, there it was on my doorstep! :D



I loved the packaging!!! The pretty pink box looked so impeccable that I hardly wanted to open it!



The inner packaging also was, as declared, quite discreet & nicely done. It came with a cute card with guidelines on lingerie care & storage too! 


Overall, I would say it was a good & confident-boosting experience. The products were clean, sturdy, perfect fit & of a good quality and the shopping experience was smooth & easy (barring the li'l mistake on Fedex's part)
The stores at the mall don't realise how much of a business they just lost out to another smart online shopping portal! Coz, I'll definitely keep an eye on the attractive deals Pretty Secrets offers and from now on, my mouse will see a lot of action, lingerie-wise! ;)

I would totally recommend Pretty Secrets to all you ladies who think that lingerie can't be bought from the comfort of your couch. Trust me, you'll save yourself the penetrating stares from other customers boring a hole in your back as you pick up a lingerie from the arrays at display & head over to the trial rooms. 

So, go check out the website and see for yourself! 
Of course, you can thank me later for introducing you to it!! ^_^

Have a nice weekend you all!


Love,
Anupriya DG

  3. Hey Anuprya thanks for this post. I really appreciate your review on Pretty Secrets. As you rightly pointed out, i find it a great task to go buy lingerie. I always wanted to try buying lingerie online for convenience sake but for the lack of trust and knowledge about which website to buy from. I will definitely try Pretty Secrets one of these days soon.

  5. Shopping online for lingerie is one of those things I always find myself hesitating on... but then when I take the plunge, I'm always glad that I do! And hearing how the customer service department really took care of you when the shipping company dropped the all is always encouraging. I'll definitely be investigating Pretty Secrets :)
