I would just like to say a big thank you to Galyna and the team at Empress Mimi for sending me this box out to review for Boxession.
For anyone unfamiliar with this box, they are a monthly premium lingerie subscription service who deliver high quality garments that make you feel like a, well, an Empress! Each month as a different theme and all the items in each of the boxes fit in with the theme perfectly.
I will discuss the different options and price points shortly, but first, if you missed my unboxing of this box, you can catch it here on our youtube channel (and subscribe if you haven’t already!):
This box was super cute and came in a letterbox friendly box (however other options may not, so the size of the box may vary month to month), in a postage bag to protect it from the elements. Once removed, the box itself is adorned with the theme for the month- Cote d’Azur in a very modern print and a pretty ribbon. It came via royal mail.
As already mentioned, this month’s theme is Cote d’Azur and is inspired by the enchanting coastline of the French Riviera and designed for your inner jet setting glamourpuss. The box came with a product description card that had cartoon depictions of two women wearing the items from this month, which I thought was so cute.
So, what awaited me inside this box? Well…
The first items were some blue coloured glittery nipple stickers in a star shape. They matched the colour of the lingerie perfectly and were a super cute addition to the box- very in keeping with the theme too! I have never used this sort of thing before, but the lingerie is quite see through, so I imagine these may be useful to stop any unwanted slippage! I will definitely try these out when I wear this set for a special occasion!
The next item was the lingerie set itself- a beautiful, lacy blue asymmetric bra and panties set. This screams flirtation, fun and is highly on trend too, with the cut out details and asymmetric design of the bra. The panties have a cute starfish charm on the front and the whole set definitely creates an enchanting effect which is very much what this month’s theme is all about! The fit is great too, I ordered based on the size guide on their website (link below) and they are true to size, comfortable and high quality too. I think this is more of a special occasion set than an everyday set, but I already have a few ideas for what I am going to wear it with! It is definitely a playful set designed to get pulses racing! I have a few asymmetric dresses that this would go perfectly with, as I hate it when you can see your bra strap sticking out of a dress because you don’t have the right style of bra, so it is always great to mix things up. All in all, a great addition to my lingerie drawer!
I received the Queen Box, which is the middle priced box of the 3 options available. I will talk you through these now:
There are 3 options with this box:
- House of Frillies Box- this includes a pair of panties/thong/briefs at £15.19 per month (converted from dollars on the 20/7/2019)
- Queen Box- Matching lingerie set, priced at £31.95 per month (converted from dollars on the 20/7/2019)
- Empress Box- Matching set plus accessories such as kimonos, jewellery and loungewear priced at £79.62 per month (converted from dollars on the 20/7/2019).
All of these options include free international shipping and returns. The box comes with a returns/exchanges label should you need to do so, which makes the process really smooth and easy. This can sometimes put me off buying from certain places if they have a really difficult returns process, so I am sure this will reassure a lot of people!
I have to say, I am a sucker for pretty lingerie, even if I am the only one who sees it that day, I feel like it really boosts my confidence. We all deserve a treat every now and then (or every month!) and what better way to do that than with some beautiful lingerie delivered straight to your door? The quality really impressed me and I am already excitedly planning where and what I can wear them with. The size guide on the website is really handy and easy to understand so you can be sure you are getting the correct size. This would also make a great gift that you could ask your other half for at Christmas/birthday/valentines/anniversary- after all, it would be a treat for them too, right?
