Victoria’s Secret – SEMI ANNUAL SALE | Haul & International Shipping Review
On boxing day I was browsing through online sales, having previously worked in retail i have seen how retailers ship in items specially for them to be ‘reduced’ and it makes you wonder if you are actually getting a good deal? Whenever I purchase from the sales, I look for things that I know have been full-price previously/or something I had my eye on. I find this attitude helps me not waste money, specifically, I am not buying something just for the sake of it being marked up as ‘reduced’ or ‘sale’. Let me know your thoughts and experiences on this in the comments below.
Eventually, I came across Victoria’s Secret Semi Annual Sale, I have seen this alot in the past from American bloggers and You-tuber’s. VS opened physical stores in the UK a couple of years ago, I mainly enjoy purchasing their body sprays and butters etc. In the past year i have bought five or six bras from their sale in-store and being completely honest I am not really someone that enjoys searching through the sale bins, I find it alot nicer to browse through online. This time I thought I would stock up on panties/knickers whatever you like to call them. VS sale was 7 for £25 making them £3.56 each! I had to take advantage. At first, I chose 7 pairs then realised it was £8 for international shipping, but if you spend £50 shipping is free. So of course i ordered 15 pairs taking the total order to £53.40. I believe VS underwear are around £9.00 full price, which would have been £135 originally.
I placed the order just before 10pm on 26th December. VS suggest items should arrive in the UK within 3-7 business days. At the point of ordering I was given an estimated date of arrival of 6th January. Throughout the progression of my delivery I was provided with updates on where my parcel was. It’s pretty cool to watch your order come from the USA to France and finally to the UK. The estimate was correct and I received the order on the 6th January. This is not bad at all considering the bank holidays we have had over Christmas and New Year. The order was packaged in a mailing bag and within it each item was in a clear plastic bag with the product code and size, along with invoices. Perfect and cost efficient for international shipping, although I kind of did expect it to arrive within a small branded box or something similar (mainly so I could take some nice pictures for this post haha), but I won’t complain about free international shipping!
Although I will not need any new underwear for a while, I will definitely consider ordering from Victoria’s Secret again. I would definitely recommend having a look in their sale, I believe they have several throughout the year. So far I am impressed with the quality of the products I ordered, I just hope they last well after having washed them. How do you care for your underwear, do you do any specific? Let me know below!
