I’m so grateful to Lovehoney for introducing the Moonlight range of lingerie. I love it so much, I’ve already bought three sets! This was the first piece I purchased from the range; the Lovehoney Moonlight Wine Plunge Basque. I fell in love with the colour, the style, and the gorgeous satin – one of my favourite fabrics!
The Moonlight Wine Plunge Basque really is a gorgeous piece of lingerie. It’s not for everyday wear, it’s definitely a ‘special occasion’ piece. It says luxury, desire, class. I would feel amazing wearing this under a ball gown or cocktail dress. Equally, I feel incredible when I wear just the basque on its own!
How does it Look?
It’s the fabric that makes the Lovehoney Moonlight Wine Plunge Basque Set such a special piece. I adore satin. It feels glorious as you run your hands over it. It’s also the most stunning burgundy / wine colour, one of my favourite colours of autumn.
The basque is satin with a lace panel to the front of the body. The bra straps have gorgeous lace detailing, which curves and fastens together at the nape of your neck to reveal a stunning lacey piece across the tops of your shoulders. There’s some light, comfortable boning to the basque to cinch in your waist.
The bra is padded and has lacy detail to the front, with the satin resting against your skin. Some lace can feel irritable against skin, but the lace Lovehoney uses never irritates or itches when I wear it; it just feels lovely and soft. There are pretty bows to the centre of the bra cups and at the tops of the straps.
The hem of the basque is thick lace, which opens at the back to show off the top of the included thong, and your beautiful bottom!
The thong which comes with the basque is satin and lace. Thongs can be a bit hit and miss, but this one is quite special. The fabric shimmers at the front and at the back, the cute round-edged triangle of lace frames your bum. It’s very pretty and I like the attention to detail. There are also four detachable suspender straps on the basque.
How does it Fit?
I bought this in a size Medium. I’m a size 8 – 10, quite slim with 32DD boobs and a curvy bum. I’m quite petite at 5’1 and I’m short in the body. The Medium is a great fit for me; it has plenty of room in it in case I grow larger (lol!), but if I ever lost weight I would have to go down a size as I wear it on the tightest setting. It’s adjustable so could fit multiple sizes. It has a bra-style hook and eye fastening with 4 different size settings (I wear the tightest). The shoulder straps are adjustable too. It’s boned and is therefore meant to be relatively tight in order to shape your body, but it doesn’t dig in anywhere.
The bra is perfect for my large boobs. Although I have an ample bosom, I’m partial to a padded cup as it’s great for a cleavage boost! I think my boobs look amazing in this and I feel super confident wearing it.
Length-wise, it sits on my hips. If you are taller you may find it finishes at your waist. The thong fits me really well but has a fair bit of stretch so could fit slightly larger sizes although I feel it would be too big for anyone smaller than an 8.
How does it Feel?
As with all the Lovehoney lingerie I own, it’s very comfortable to wear. I feel gorgeous in this basque, womanly and elegant and the satin is incredibly soft. I feel I want to put on a beautiful gown, something long and flowing like in Pride & Prejudice! But then again, why cover it up when it’s so stunning on its own?!
I would recommend the Lovehoney Moonlight Wine Plunge Basque Set to anyone who likes a quality item, something more elegant and feminine. It’s not a ‘fuck me’ piece; the wearer will demand to be adored! I would also recommend for any fans of silky satin lingerie.
