This is one of my favourite designs from Lovehoney – Boudoir Belle. I already have a basque in cherry red but I must admit, as soon as I saw the blush chemise, my heart did a little flutter! I love black and pink; it’s such a sexy yet pretty combination and it’s hugely flattering. Thanks to the team for sending me this in exchange for my honest review.
I absolutely love the design of this set. There’s an inverted triangle on the front underneath the bra section, which comprises lace and straps, and to the rear this is repeated (minus the lace and the triangle being upright) with a strappy area showing off your bum. The thong is also, naturally, triangular shaped and has the lace feature which is incredibly striking when you wear the full outfit. The straps also feature on the bra straps which is really unusual and eye-catching. Finally, the cut-away features to the sides slim the silhouette and show a bit more flesh.
What I also love about the Boudoir Belle Chemise is the thicker shoulder straps as they don’t dig in as much as thinner straps. They’re pink at the front and black at the back which looks really cute.
How does it fit?
I was sent the Boudoir Belle Blush Chemise Set in a size medium. I’m a 32E and a size 10.
There are three double rows of hook and eye fastenings to rear which does up the bra section. The straps are also adjustable. The mesh part of the body is quite stretchy so should be able to fit most shapes, and the suspender straps are also adjustable (and removable). I can get a really good fit with this and my boobs sit nicely in the cups. If I jiggle about too much, they tend to fall out so the bra perhaps would be best suited to people with boobs up to an E cup size. Having bigger boobs is both a luxury and a curse! I love plunge, push-up bras but my nipples have a tendency to come out!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I’m not a huge fan of strappy thongs. I prefer knickers, briefs or boy shorts, but that’s just my personal preference. I would love to see a lingerie set come with knickers that I can enjoy wearing! As unfortunately, I tend to only wear the thong with the outfit when trying it on and then it gets shoved to the back of my drawer. I don’t find the overly comfortable, but the main reason for the dislike is that they show too much of my bum off for me to feel comfortable. I think my cheeks look better when they have a bit of fabric on them!
