    I am so inspired by the whole story of these knickers and I love Mary Portas’s passion and determination. I ordered a pair and they’re beautiful. I don’t understand all the negative comments. Give this wonderful home-grown business a chance. Fabulous work from Mary and the whole team: you’re an inspiration.

    I have just ordered some from M & S but their stock is low. However, I have also ordered another pair from Boots (who had the colour in I wanted) and they seem to have all sizes and colours in stock. However, I don’t think they sell the scalloped edge if that if the particular design that you want.

    Marks and Spencer now have stock on line. They have not updated their site because they are still saying they are still awaiting stock, but if you click on the message you will see there is now stock to buy!

    It’s now July and still no stock :/
    I tihnk it’s now clear why so much production is outsourced. It’s simple Economies of scale that a small firm cannot benefit from and cannot keep up with national demand.

    At least see the venture through, these updates are redundant as soon as they are posted! I’d love a pair but having tried so many times I am about to give up!

  5. Davina says:

    Why are the stock updates SO out of date on Mary’s website…..surely they of all people should know???? Understand that the demand has out stripped the supply, but up to date up dates would be good. Been trying to buy these knickers for months now, and beginning to lose the will!

    you talk the talk but your all shirt and no trousers on this one pull your finger out wouldn’t happen on my watch

  7. Steff says:

    whats happend to the knickers Mary, why can’t you sell through this site? update your updates your losing the faith

  8. Rive says:

    Well what a total anticlimax these knickers and the hype about the factory has been. I have given up checking for stock updates and frankly I am appalled that yet again, a homegrown firm can’t come up with the goods. Quite honestly I’m out of faith in anywhere stocking them any time soon and if this is good service then I’m glad to buy from elsewhere made out of the country.
    Shambles!!!! I reckon they’re going to miss the boat as interest dwindles being kept waiting. Whatever happened to supply meeting demand?!

    • Liz S says:

      I did manage to get 4 pairs from Marks & Spencers….having also checked the stock update regularly without success…decided to try direct to M&S website. It does seem such a shame to think that there are plenty of people willing to support the venture and wanting to buy them…but giving up because of lack of up to date information . Don’t understand what the problem is???

  9. Ruth says:

    Mary must be very disappointed that this venture is failing at first base from a retailing perspective – unseen is unsold…………………..even more irritating than not being able to find any to buy is a web site that titles itself as “stock update” and is over 3 weks out of date. Very poor show frankly.

    I’m so happy to hear of your factory what a wonderful thing it is your doing. I used to work for caultaulds in Nottingham, and then speedo, what a wonderful time it was, I wish I could go back to it, I miss machining and the quality we used to produce, well done to you and your team !

    Hi, I watched your programme and loved it so much…even had a tear here and there!! -Just so inspiring!! Anyway, i was determined to get a pair of Kinky Knickers, not just because they look gorgeous, but because of what they stand for. After weeks of checking online daily, I eventually managed to get lucky at M&S online!! When they arrived it felt like Christmas…i was sooo excited!!! They were definately worth the wait, they are beautiful so i would like to thank the whole production team, but especially thnks to Emma who made mine!!
    For info – i am a size 8 and XS is a perfect fit :)

  12. Judi says:

    Watched the programme and was so excited about being able to get these fabulous knickers. Unfortunately I’m on the larger size and they wouldn’t fit – any chance of making larger sizes Mary?? I’m sure your sales would rocket – after all who doesn’t want to wear beautiful knickers!

  13. Christopher Rivers says:

    Look i dont have much, we just had a baby boy born 8 weeks ago so i now have two beautiful sons, their the apple of my eye and a drain on my ever dwindling bank account. But i love the fact your knickers are made in england, for two long we have forgotten that this country was born on the back of manufacturing and industry, Mary yours is a great story a real worthy idea and cause, and my wife loves them. So when i find them in the stores what i have in my pocket is yours, il try and buy her as many as i can afford. Thank you and your team for giving it ago and making a differance.

    I collected two pairs from my local Boots yesterday – ordered on line and delivered ahead of time – they are beautifully made and really comfortable WELL DONE all concerned and an extra well done to Boots for donating £1.00 to Macmillan for every pair sold

  15. aleh says:

    good on you! they are sold out on m&s and liberty. what about selling in john lewis and more colours please!!??

  16. Ken Smith says:

    Watched your TV programme. Brilliant and so Inspiring !!

    It`s about time people stood up for British Manufacturing.

    I wish you and Gang in Middleton the very best and hope your success leads to a change throughout the nation.

    I am currently on a mission that whenever I see something not made in the UK I send an e-mail to the company respectfully asking that they seriously consider supporting British manufacture before commissioning future items !!

  17. Fiona Horton says:

    I love the knickers as they fit beautifully and the lace is gorgeous! I live near Nottingham and it is nice to see that our lovely British made lace is once again getting the recognition that it deserves.

    As a future product what about making a bra that matches the knickers?

  18. Amanda Butwell says:

    I ordered two pairs of the kinky knickers through Boots on line service and collected at my local store. Just to say these are just the most fantastic knickers I have bought to date, great cut, soft sexy feel to them, excellent fit, and made in the UK, using 100% UK sourced materials. Well done to Mary Portas and the Middleton team I shall be buying many more pairs and recommending to all my friends.
