If you reside in the UK, possibilities are you’ve heard of Lovehoney. Taglined “the sexual happiness people”, this is the spot to go online for a huge range of sexy lingerie from the likes of Leg Avenue, Oh La La Cheri and Seven ’til Midnight. What you may possibly now know nevertheless is that Lovehoney also has their personal, in-house lingerie variety which was unveiled at the end of 2014.
It’s a sizeable collection, with just more than 150 distinct pieces presently offered on the website, and many things offered in plus sizes up to a UK 24. It is also wonderful to see that a lot of the designs that come in plus-sizes are really photographed on plus-sized as properly as core-sized models – admittedly something a lot of brands in this niche are excellent at, but admirable nonetheless!
Lovehoney not too long ago loaned me a handful of lingerie and nightwear pieces so that I could photograph them and give you a close-up appear at the collection. I’d initially asked to be sent the eyelash lace-trimmed Enchant Me range which is just beautiful, but unfortunately it’s been discontinued – the final handful of pieces are on sale from £3 and I definitely believe they’re worth checking out, so be certain to view this basque, bra and knickers also.
In spite of the huge selection of products in Lovehoney’s own lingerie collection, the colours are focussed about a narrow colour palette of black, red and purple – classic lingerie colours that most men and women will list amongst their favourites. As for materials, there’s lace – a lot of lace – alongside satin, mesh, net and wet-appear fabric. Virtually every single piece is finished off with a tiny silver Lovehoney charm.
My favourite piece from what I saw was this Flaunt Me cupless, crotchless lace bodysuit – also available in red and plus sizes. Cheap lace has a tendency to appear inexpensive, but not this a single. I believed it was genuinely fairly, specifically with the tiny ruching detail at the back and the detachable suspender straps. At £22.99, it’s great worth for cash too!
The robe pictured above and below (available in A single Size and Queen Size) is also from the Flaunt Me collection, but made from a diverse black lace (not really so beautiful, but completely acceptable for the cost point). With its thigh-grazing length, sheer floral pattern, and scalloped edging, it is a lovely little boudoir cover-up that won’t break the bank. The standard price is £19.99, believed the A single Size version is currently on sale for half that if you’re fast!
No sexy, boudoir-inspired lingerie collection would be total without a slinky small satin chemise, and this Spoil Me babydoll was my other favourite piece and probably the one I could most envision wearing myself. Like cheap lace, low-cost satin can appear awful – it can look more plastic-shine than glossy-sheen, or really feel stiff and crinkly like tissue paper – but the satin on the Spoil Me babydoll was surprisingly thick and soft.
The design is cute too with its split sides and racer-back style. The Spoil Me babydoll costs £24.99 and comes with a matching thong, and is available in red, black, purple or child pink, all in typical and plus sizes.
Coming back to the Flaunt Me collection, there’s also a lace basque – offered in black too – which is produced from the very same, pretty lace as the cupless bodysuit. The lacy straps atop the lightly-padded cups give just a nod to the well-known strappy trend on what is otherwise a very simple, classic-seeking basque. I consider it appears a small much more expensive in the black colourway, but either way at £29.99 including a matching thong it’s one more cost-effective indulgence.
Ultimately, the bras. Pictured right here are the Spoil Me (left) and Adore Me (proper) bras, each available up to a UK 22-24 and with matching bottoms. The Spoil Me is a really of-the-moment design, with a strappy, racer-style back, while Adore Me is a half-cup bra overlaid with black lace and with a ribbon halter fastening. Both of these bras are front-fastening, and expense £16.99 every.
So, all round thoughts on Lovehoney’s in-property lingerie variety? Whilst this is not a spot you’ll locate luxury fabrics or finishes, that’s okay – lingerie does not always have to be about luxury. What Lovehoney does supply is attractive, pretty underthings that come in a wide range of sizes and are very inexpensive, so you can treat yourself guilt-free of charge each now and then.
Costs range from £36.99 at the top end, down to just £5.99 – or £1.50 if you count the existing sale prices! So if you are seeking for cheap, flirty lingerie that won’t fall apart after the first put on, do verify the complete range out.
