    i can vouch for that i came as a runner up for oh points im a size22/ 24 and it was a item i brought my self as is most my stuff from here but i don't expect free things lovehoney is only company that ha S given me a tester in my life before. its lovely but not somthing i look for when sshopping idon't think anyone should have sour grapes. as its just a lovely add extra. If i don't get one then somone else has and im happy for them. Its not a entiltment . my image was just a selfy to no back grounds lights and i have stretch marks of 6 kids and money is tight to with so many children. I buy what i can when i can although to much recently lol. What im trying to say is im sure there is no conspiracy here. And i thank love honey do a amazing job its hard to make everyone happy but my god they do there best and i thank all involved its alot of work to get a company as good as this.

    I wasn't saying testers were the absolute only way to win - in fact I added them as an after-thought based on the post I was quoting. I don't expect anything for free - I never would - however my point was that people who have been here for a longer time get the testers, while people who have maybe been here says 6 months or less don't. That makes sense from a business point of view and I'm not sour about it at all. I understand it.

    My issue lies with almost every winner on there for this year looks the part - I feel that's discouraging. To me specifically. Like I said, I was only talking from my own point of view but it was pretty discouraging to see that. Again, another point raised was that the same people kept winning and these were the same people getting testers quite often - which I assume is where the idea came from of the cycle that people get testers and use them to win more free stuff when Lovehoney already gave them free stuff - it's unfair to people who can't afford it or who get overlooked due to the age of their account or simply because other people are regulars.

    I know that isn't the case all the time, but people here have stated the same thing as me that it has occured. It is a bit unfair that that can happen, in my opinion.

    Anyway, I don't have sour grapes about it, I was just stating why I - MYSELF - do not/did not participate. I felt I wasn't what the competition was looking for. I prefer to go for the review of the month as I find that putting myself up on internet only serves to bother me. I don't want to and don't do it on any site so Lovehoney isn't going to be an exeception - again personal preference here.

    Nah that's understandable, it's all each to their own! 😁I'm round the 22 mark myself, and the pics I've posted this month nearly never were as my confidence had gone, but doing the pics has brought it back! I do the photos for me, and while a win in a competition would be nice, I don't expect it and it's not the main reason why I post the pics. But I must say I'm enjoying twitter 😃

    i think the reason being its longer members that seem to get tester is that you have to of written a certain amount of reviews im guessing thats for a number of reasons to make sure of a certain quality that there helpful to potential buyers also encourage people to write reviews i guess as a in sent I've as they will obviously help sales. So i can see why. Sours grapes was referring to someone that wrote sour grapes i guess comment.

    Was saying to Throbin yesterday I've never known a company like LH, the interactions staff have with customers and this community that they're a part of, second to none. No other company does as much for customers. But as you say, can't please everybody all of the time. Let's wait and see how the new system goes, do come join us on Twitter, this is aimed at everyone, you can make an account under your LH username rather than your real name, and you can make your tweets private so only people who follow you can see, and you can have it so you have to approve people before they can follow you. It's entirely possible to keep your anonymity, and go between twitter and the forums too! 😁😁

    i realy am going to try this would love to join you both if i ever figure it out 😂

    I am not sure where the idea has come from that only testers with review items won...Many have won from their own purchased lingerie collection. So yes you needed to have had something from Lovehoney to show in the pic, this could have been a purchased item or tester item.

    Winners & Runners up have been slim, curvy, male, creative, over the top, subtle... So I would like to say we haven't just pick one paticular body type. Sadly we haven't had that much to pick from recently, making it seem like we have bee lined for the same people & same type of image. The winners are well deserved in our eyes - no matter what shape or size.

    We would have loved to see more people join in, but people have chosen not to and that is absolutely fine. We love that those that do feel comfortable to will show off how the items look on our customers. It helps other members here and that is fantastic!

    There will not be anything replacing it forum/blog wise. As stated we will be doing image based competitions on social media platforms.

    Thank you all for your participation in the previous model of the month posts & thank you all for your feedback regarding it's closure.

    Winners of the final will be announced in the forum after the Christmas break.

    Yes its a little sad that the photo competition is ending, they really should have just tweaked it a little to make it popular once again!

    But seems social media is the way most companies go in the end to reach a wider audience!

    I can totally understand the reason why, just a shame they cant do both!

    But I will continue to post pictures on both formats as its fun!

    Hope you all like my new caveman ones lol :)

    Personally I think a little 'tweak' to the title would have encouraged more to enter i.e., Lingerie Photo of the Month or something like that.

    Much less intimidating for people who are not model shaped such as myself, and after all, it was always supposed to be about the picture of the lingerie, not the person wearing it.

    Oh well, decision has been taken so no point in crying over it now

    As you can see I am still posting pics anyway xxx
