Lingerie chain adds private toy collection to its assortment
Veendam, 8 november 2022 – Lingerie chain Hunkemöller and EasyToys have selected and designed a new collection of adult toys together.

The lingerie chain and erotic market leader have selected the most appealing products from the EasyToys assortment. Hunkemöller’s collection will be expanded with a rabbit vibrator, vibrating panties, toy cleaner, lubricant and the so-called pleasure box. This couples gift box contains a couple vibrator, massage candle, bondage rope, finger vibrator and erotic dice. The sexual wellness products can be found in the back of the Hunkemöller stores, next to the Private Collection lingerie.
