What they didn't know was that M&S had just launched a range of luxury lingerie to rival purveyors of the frothy and frilly. It offers something for everyone. There are fitted black, lacy French knickers and sheer lace, underwired bras with matching high-cut knickers that even Sharon Stone would die for. They come in purple, white, cream, red, black and navy. Tiny lace-edged nightdresses in navy, cream, red, black and pink will confuse the best of the `It' girls (Should I wear it out clubbing or in bed?) There is even an underwired "smoothlines" full slip in black or white to wear under sheer dresses.
The great surprise with this range is the price. Nothing costs more than pounds 20, and if that doesn't set you hot-footing it to your local M&S, nothing will.
Photograph features 31-year-old mother and model Paulina Porizkova. She wears "all over contrast lace underwired bra", pounds 20, with matching high-leg knickers, pounds 6.50. The style comes in black/white or black/buttermilk and is available in bra sizes 32a-38d and dress sizes from 8/10 to 20/22.
