I think there’s a lot to be said for pearls on a woman. Paired with a gown or even a silk blouse, they add an elegant touch to any neck.
But as users on a discussion board on mumsnet discovered, the neck is not where some marketers would like women to wear their pearls.
In a thread titled: ‘Underwear or torture device?’ One user posted a screenshot of the products that were popping up in their online ads.
The question posed by LemonRedwood may have some validity considering the size of the comment section that quickly grew below it.
