Disclosure: I bought both products here with my personal money and was not asked to evaluation them. This post contains affiliate hyperlinks.
These days I bring you a couple of ‘brief’ testimonials, har har. I’ve fallen a small behind on the items I had planned to review and these knickers are both now sold out, but they’re pretty and I wanted to function them anyway. So rather than my usual, in-depth testimonials, I believed I’d bundle them with each other into one brief but image-heavy post. Enjoy!
La Lilouche Veronika knickers
My La Lilouche Adelle-Lana set is one of the most luxurious factors I’ve ever bought, and quite considerably the moment I received it and saw the high quality and detail first-hand I went back for more from her sample sale (nonetheless on, by the way).
I’m just so in adore with these Veronika knickers. They have basically almost everything on them – wet-look fabric, sheer fabric, appliqué, cut-out detail, 3D roses… require I go on? However with it all getting the very same colour it doesn’t appear like as well a lot. This is what I really like about La Lilouche so a lot of of her designs feature a multitude of diverse textures and fabrics that are blended perfectly together. The finish is artistic and unique and quite, extremely luxurious.
La Lilouche’s rates reflect the level of detail that goes into her pieces i.e. it’s costly, but it’s so worth each penny. I’ve now got my eye on the higher-waisted Alexina knickers, the button-up Leina knickers and, like, each other item in retailer.
Agent Provocateur Bubbles knickers
I have long coveted Agent Provocateur‘s Bubbles line. I 1st wrote about it in the original black back in 2012 and it was 1 of those pieces I’d really regretted not getting after it had sold out, but then the planets aligned and they re-released it a handful of seasons later in my favourite colour, red.
As significantly as I love the aesthetics here, I ended up buying this on sale (one of the few pieces I said I’d allow myself to do that for in the course of my complete-priced only challenge) and I’m glad I did. The knickers do have a gusset but it’s a teeny tiny one that covers nothing, so with the ginormous gaps in this supersized net it’s just not really comfortable or, in my opinion, eye-catching to put on. I’m going to sew in a taller gusset myself!
The elastic trims around the leg openings have a tendency to turn over as I stroll and show the stitched-onto side, and the net itself is a loosely-woven and very easily-pulled type that’s currently rubbed thin nearly to the point of falling apart where it wraps around the gold ring at the back. I’ve bought rather a lot from Agent Provocateur more than the years and I have to say, this is the lowest-quality item of the lot. It’s nice to finally own one thing I’ve lusted following for so long, but honestly I sort of want I’d place the cash towards some thing else.
What do you consider of these two pairs of knickers? Also, I’d enjoy to know if you favor my usual, detailed evaluations that cover match, durability and so on, or short and sweet ones like this? I do not review every little thing I purchase basically simply because I do not have the time, but I could consider carrying out much more typical mini evaluations like this if you’d be interested in them.
