Complaints?

Some people have too much time on their hands.

That thing is hardly flipping pregnant anyway!!

And anyway, who wears that stuff when pregnant? What's wrong with big grey pants then? Eh? Tell me that.

The bra and knicker set is HotMilk, I'm pretty sure? Apparently the manufacturer received complaints also after sending out leaflets to potential buyers! People are mad!

HotMilk It is sexy but tastefully done, IMO.

It was on our local news tonight; I was totally shock that people had nothing better to compalin about than a slightly pregnant looking white cloth headless and legless figure. It was alongside a similar non-pregnant dummy and I couldn't see the difference.

Perish the fecking thought that pregnant women wear underwear too angry

Actually the local BBC news had it in the studio tonight and they had an "unprecedented number of calls" in support of the shopkeeper and the dummy. Must just be the stupid old batsgood burghers of Selby that are stuck in the Victorian ages.

<apologies if you are from Selby and don't care overly much about pregnant dummies wearing pants>
