Empress Mimi January 2020 by Gemma

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 Imperial Peacock and it came in a cute little pink velvet drawstring bag, which I can definitely use for other things too! It came in an outer postage bag and fit right through my letterbox!

And what delights awaited me inside this luxurious bag? Well…

The first thing I want to mention is that they always send you a returns or exchange form, just in case the item is damaged/not your size/not your style etc, meaning you can have total peace of mind when ordering. I would say so far that every item I have received has been true to size, but it is good to know that I could return or exchange hassle free should I need to.

The theme card displayed an almost paisley style peacock print in an array of beautiful greens, blues, pinks and yellows. Really stunning design and had me intrigued as to what was inside! On the back, it read:

“Why blend in when you were born to stand out?

Dear Empress,

This box was inspired by the flamboyant and lavish peacock, a majestic bird inspiring us to embrace our nobility and become living artworks.

No other creature is quite so magnetic and outrageously decadent- we invite you to wear this set to remember that you are a woman to behold, a peacock in a flock of pigeons and to never shy away from standing out. Your true beauty shines through when you dare to show your true colours- put this set on and flaunt your assets. And just like the peacock loses its feathers and regrows them every year, you too have the power to embrace change and await your magnificent rebirth- you just have to release your inner peacock energy.

Always remember dear Empress, you are as regal and majestic as the imperial peacock celebrated through the ages for its beauty and power.

With love and adoration,

Empress Mimi’

I love these little stories that explain the idea behind the theme and the empowering message behind them.

The set this month is my favourite so far- a beautiful black set with the most stunning peacock print in a vibrant turquoise colour that really pops against the black.

The bra is a black lace and mesh couple with bespoke embroidery and has a very sexy cut out to show off your assets and is designed to conceal and reveal in all the right places. It is unwired and there are straps strategically placed to enhance the bust, as they go just above the scallop edge hem of the cups. The shoulder straps are adjustable. It is lightweight and breathable, as well as being comfortable to wear- I hate when bras are too restricting but this is so nice on!

The briefs again are black lace and mesh with that beautiful bespoke embroidery, with some playful satin straps that go up your hips to accentuate those beautiful curves. It really is such a striking effect! The straps are adjustable too. Again, they are lightweight, breathable and comfortable to wear- they feel so good against my skin!  An absolutely stunning set!

I found this fit to be true to size and comfortable too. It is also worth mentioning that there is a great size guide on the website to help you choose the correct size.

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 £14.52 per month (converted from dollars on the 25/01/2020)
  • Queen Box- Matching lingerie set, priced at £30.56 per month (converted from dollars on the 25/01/2020)
  • Empress Box- Matching set plus accessories such as kimonos, jewellery and loungewear priced at £76.14 per month (converted from dollars on the 25/01/2020).

All of these options include free international shipping and returns.  As mentioned earlier, 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!

Also, the code LUCKY40 will get you 40% off!

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?
