Empress Mimi Box by Gemma August 2019

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 month’s theme is Coral Goddess and it wasn’t in a box this time! It came in a postage bag and inside was a beautiful silk drawstring bag with golden tassels and the theme emblazoned across the front. It really is stunning and is definitely coming to Croatia with me in September to store some of my delicates in it!


So what awaited me inside this bag? Well…

The item in question is a totally stunning coral red bodysuit, which can also double up as a swimsuit. It is one shouldered, with a ruffle design across the chest. It has a lace up side for a little bit of sexiness, and the laces have cute little starfish charms on them. It can be adjusted quite easily and tied at the side to hold you in! It can be worn on a night out with shorts, a skirt or jeans and because of the material it is made of, you could also use it as a swimming costume. I am going to Croatia in early September and this is definitely coming with me! The colour is so summery and definitely makes me think of holidays and beaches!

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 have included a photo of me wearing it so you can see what it looks like on! I am so impressed with it, and I can’t wait to get by the pool to wear it! I also adore the bag this came in, and will definitely find a use for it as it is too cute to not use!

I received the Queen Box, which is the middle priced box of the 3 options available. I will talk you through these now:

The Prices.

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!

My Verdict.

This is fast becoming one of my favourite subscriptions! 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?
