A pair of Queen Victoria’s bloomers has recently sold at action for £360. The waistband measures 38 inches.
Fascinating to see a “Victoria`s Secret” ad over a story about something personal, VERY personal, sold at auction that Queen Victoria would no doubt have preferred remain secret. Not only is it her “Royal Drawers”, but extra large drawers at that ! Bloomers, nickers, undies; people will buy ANYTHING of historical significance !
Please don’t tell me that the buyer then sniffed them. I do not want to lose my appetite for tomorrow.
