Cleaning sensation and social media star Mrs Hinch’s Instagram account is usually filled with great suggestions for her 3.5 million followers about where to purchase useful products.
However, on Monday the mum of one took to her Instagram stories to share her disappointment over a shapewear undergarment she had purchased on eBay.
The star shared a screenshot of the offending item, writing: “Right I need to share this with you,” alongside a laughing face emoji.

She then continued: “So I bought some of these on eBay and I’ve been wearing them all day (thought I would give them a go)… TERRIBLE.
“I’ve just taken them off and the relief is unbelievable! Never will I step foot in these particular ones again.”
She the ended her post by writing alongside a waving emoji and a musical note: “Bye girl.”
The 30 year old then revealed to her fans, while in the guise of her ‘Gretel’ Instagram filter, which makes her look like an old woman, that: “Just before I jump in the bath guys the reason I bought those eBay knickers is because they were supposed to be shaping contouring hour glass ones…”
The author of Hinch Yourself Happy added: “…that give you shape under a dress but they were just so bad and did absolutely nothing for me.”

The Essex-born beauty then hilariously described what it was like to finally remove them: “I feel like I’ve been released from being stuck inside a rubber tyre for 10 hours.”
However, Mrs Hinch did take the time to suggest a pair of control underwear that was to her fancy; a gorgeous lace pair from M&S.
The star shared the underwear, explaining that they were “amazing” and that they made her “feel really secure!”
The best friend of Stacey Solomon’s weight has changed a lot since she was younger, having lost a whopping eight stone due to a gastric band operation she had at just 21 years old.
As a result she admits she is no stranger to support underwear, writing: “I’m not a g-string kinda girl if I’m honest! I love these kinda ones!
"As someone of you may know I’ve been many different clothes sizes over the years, but underwear for me has to be comfy and these are SO cosy and I think they’re pretty too!”
Fans were quick to applaud her honesty about wearing more practical pants, and Mrs Hinch shared these to her Instagram Stories: “Your messages make me feel so brave as strange as that may sound! You’re all amazing xx”
One follower wrote: “Someone who finally admits that Bridget Jones’s pants are comfier than cheese strings!!”
While another added: “I love that you’re so down to earth! Why do we feel the need to be constantly seen as "sexy!""
"I’d love to get some tummy flattening knickers but I’m worried I’d be embarrassed in front of my partner! Thank you for showing us that it’s okay”, a third shared.
