    Has anyone had any problems with the quality of the boyshorts? I bought two pairs in the Black Friday sales and they're in tatters after one wearing and one wash. Really disappointed as they are comfy and look really nice on. Plus they're relatively cheap if the quality is good. I have the lace and mesh knickers too but they've survived fine.

    how did you wash them? I hand wash or put on a cool gentle wash in the washer and they've always turned out okay.

    30 degree on low rotation inside a lingerie bag. They were pulled before I put them in but it only made it worse. I don't know how they ripped, they seemed fine when I got them and I only wore them once to sleep. Was shocked in the morning when they went in the laundry basket with an extra hole.

    Not yet, was planning on sending them back for a refund though. I really wanted to keep them as they're quite pretty, but I don't want to end up with another 'faulty' pair if LH send a replacement.

    I am sorry to hear this happened TMTTL. I have several pairs and machine wash them, all have been fine. I even still have some from the first batch that were released a couple years back. 

    Sounds like you have been quite unlucky here sad

    Do let our customer care team know as thet will resolve this for you.

    Thanks Leanne, I'll speak to CC about a replacement as from what I've read it seems they're just a faulty pair.

    Since we're on the topic of LH's knickers and their sizing, I've got a question:

    I've tried this before http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=34607 and found it too large for me at the smallest size. I'm normally a UK size 6, although I can range from 4-8 depending on cut.

    Will the other knickers in the Flirty range similarly be too large? Like this one? http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=32348

    Or are there other non-crotchless ones that run smaller?

    I'm a size four and found this style to be the biggest in the Flirty range. The others are loose fitting on me, but they don't fall down or anything. They're just not skin tight as knickers in my size would be. I have written a few reviews on the other styles if that helps!

    I did wonder if it was the style that was the main issue. I'll have a look at your reviews too, thanks! :)

    Don't know if it helps but I have these in Black, Pink, Red and Purple and am a U.K. Size 14. the M/L which state 12 /14 fit me perfectly, so I would imagine that if you are normally a size 12 they would be a tad on the large size.

    I guess that is going to be an issue when selling in SML rather than in individual sizes. I have also completed reviews on these if it helps.
