Once again, Lovehoney tempted me with a gorgeous set of lingerie that I simply couldn’t resist! The Midnight Affair basque in particular caught my atttention because of the gorgeous colour; a shade of royal blue truly flattering to my skintone. It also has the added bonus of coming with lacy wristcuffs!
It looked quite small when it arrived, because it folds up into a small, neat package! The first thing I noticed was the amazing colour; I adore blue, and this shade is really rich and super flattering. The lace up ribbon style is a lovely feature, making the basque look quite special. The lacy panels are very intricate and pretty, and the fabric feels soft, not scratchy or stiff.
It has thick suspender straps which are removable. The bra cups are non-underwired, comfortable, and quite revealing! My boobs spill out of the sides a little when I wear this, although it still looks sexy. Anyone with bigger than DD boobs may find there isn’t enough support.
There’s an added thong with the basque set. My preference is for briefs, either open crotch or back to make them a bit naughtier, but it’s still nice to get a matching pair. One thing I wish basque set makers would do is provide more than one pair, or to be able to order extra knickers when purchasing. I wash knickers after every wear, but a basque I wear several times before washing, and I end up wearing it with briefs that don’t match.
There is also an added set of lacy wristcuffs which is a lovely addition. They’re elasticated so you can move around whilst wearing them, but they look so hot! I love the fact they match the basque too.
The Midnight Affair basque is one-size. I am a petite size 8 – 10 with 32DD boobs.
The thong fits me quite snugly, I’d guesstimate that it would fit a size 8 – 10, possibly a 12 but no bigger. The cups are stretchy but, as mentioned above, my DDs do spill out of the sides a little but the basque still looks good. This is definitely something I will be wearing in the bedroom! The rest of the basque fits really well, and has adjustable straps to the rear and on the shoulder straps. I’m unsure how far this would stretch, I’d say perhaps up to a 12 or 14. It’s waist length and the suspender straps hang down lower.
I would recommend this for people of around a size 6 – 14, but note that the thong may be a little smaller than the basque. The good news is that Lovehoney also do this basque set in plus size, winner!
The Midnight Affair basque would make an ideal gift! And it’s currently on offer at just £17.99 (normal price £29.99) which is such an absolute bargain for a piece of this quality. Get yours here!*
