Christmas stockings and other underwear

WHILE socks, jocks and other items of underwear are traditional Christmas gifts, if not necessarily that exciting, the underwear industry is aiming for a bigger slice of shoppers' credit card bills.

Not content with promoting underwear as outerwear (see former Spice person Mel B, and let's not even talk about all those teenage boys whose pants drag down to expose their brand name undies), anyone with a vague claim to celebrity has their name on our undies.

The latest is Brett Lee, but our Kylie (Minogue) and Jennifer Hawkins and a whole host of others have had a go at 'designing' at least their signature for various labels.

If you're thinking of buying something special for a special someone this Christmas, Robyn Heard of Wisteria Wonderland, Ballina, said that sizing doesn't go by the tape measure.

“Get a gift voucher so that the lady can try things on and choose for herself,” said Robyn. “Or choose something like a sexy nightie in a stretch fabric which does not require an exact fit.”
