Empress Mimi Lingerie (Mermaid Edition) Review by Chloe – September 2018

Let me start by saying this review is aimed at over 18’s! So if you are younger close your eyes haha. Empress Mimi London is a custom designed box filled with delectable lingerie and luxurious sleepwear that is delivered to you every month. Items change on a monthly basis to keep things exciting so every delivery is a special surprise. There are different choices in box that vary in price which I will talk you through later. But first, if you would like to see my reaction to this month’s items then check out my live unboxing here on our YouTube channel:

Here is a link to their website if you would like to have a look around:


About the Box:

The idea came from a non-traditional design background; Empress Mimi London has re-imagined the lingerie experience from the point of view of an empowered modern woman.

First up is comfort: working long hour’s demands lingerie that is not so constricting that you feel the need to take it off the moment you step through your front door. This is why they have eliminated those hard and painful wires and decided to use high performance materials and decadent silks for support and comfort instead. Knowing that a woman’s size fluctuates throughout the year, they created designs that maintain a perfect fit and can be adjusted according to need.

Next up is convenience: tired of constantly out-dated underwear drawers and lacking the time to try on dozens of bras on the regular, Empress Mimi created a subscription service that would replenish your worn out undies with the latest styles on a monthly basis so that you always have something fabulous to wear underneath.

Finally, even for a highly paid professional, most quality lingerie is too expensive to buy regularly and the risk of one wrong washing cycle at those price points is just too great to bear. So they decided to save on those prestigious flagship stores, and to forego hiring Gigi and Kendall, passing the savings on to customers so that you don’t have to worry about breaking it when things get too frisky.

Empress Mimi is run by modern women themselves, so they know that commitment is not necessarily something they are looking for. That’s why you can cancel your subscription at any time and plans start from just one month.

Size guide:

When you visit Empress Mimi London’s website you will find a tab which takes you to their size guide chart. This means you can order without having to worry that your products won’t fit and you can change sizing from month to month.

What I received in my limited edition Mermaid Box:

  • Contents card
  • Underneath tissue paper printed with their logo, carefully closed with a sticker was a gold sleek lingerie holder bag. This is perfect for travelling to keep your favourite lingerie pieces in!
  • The first item this month was a mermaid inspired bodysuit in baby blue and cream. It has adjustable straps on the arms and on the back so you can get into it with ease and adjust as needed! From personal experience I would advise you to size up in this body suit purely because the cups are rather small. I opted for a size Medium which is a size 10-12, this is my usual size but I think the bodysuit would look more flattering on me in a bigger size, with bigger cups. I love the theme this month as it is feminine and sexy, the bodysuit can be dressed up or down. You can wear it in the bedroom on its own or pair with some high-waisted jeans and wear out. This is a piece I would purchase myself as I love that it is a lingerie item but can also be used for fashion. It is stylish and sexy all in one. I would estimate the RRP of the bodysuit between £35 to £45.
  • The matching items this month were heart shaped nipple covers that boast a holographic mermaid design. The adhesive side is strong enough to stay on but not cause harm when removing. They are a good size so will fit a range of nipples so don’t worry about whether they will cover your nip nops, I am confident they will! I like that these fit in with the mermaid theme of the box, I have never seen nipple covers like these before. After having a search on the web I have found that these retail for £7 in a set of 3.
  • Also in the box are Empress Mimi’s Instagram competition leaflet and returns instructions. The returns and exchange process is simple and straight forward with the return form included in the box.

Is this box worth your coin?

If you are looking to spice up your lingerie draw and receiving a sexy surprise every month then this is the box for you! You can cancel your subscription at any time and it includes free delivery, meaning there are no strings attached.

As previously stated there is a return form included in the box in the unfortunate case you do not like your items. You can purchase any of the box options to treat yourself or someone you know, not only do these give you something to look forward to; They would also make great gifts. Especially if you have an anniversary coming up, if you would like to surprise a partner or even Birthdays/Christmas! The items themselves have been well thought out combining comfort and sex appeal giving you the best of both worlds. Each item having adjustability means it will fit you all year round even after those Christmas tums!

I feel as though you are definitely getting your money’s worth with this box and even more so if you were to use our exclusive discount code. It saves you the hassle of facing lingerie shopping which can end up in a sweaty mess trying to find suitable products etc. I know I would much prefer to have something sweet and sultry delivered to my door every month that can be returned if not liked; or kept and added to your collection! All in all this is a fabulous box which was exciting to unbox and review, thank you Galyna and the Empress Mimi team!
