Empress Mimi Review by Gemma – February 2020

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 Foxy Cleopatra and it came in a cute white silk 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 depicts Cleopatra in all her glory, wearing the stunning set featured this month and on the back it read:

“Dear Empress,

This box was inspired by a woman who was as gifted at ruling a Kingdom as she was at ruling the hearts of men.

Red is commonly associated with blood, love and fire but for a woman like Cleopatra, the colour red represented both her power and her infamous glamour. As one of the first women in history to wear red lipstick, the ancient Queen was known to be so extra as to grind up red beetles to make her luscious lips even more brightly rouged.

Let this set be your undercover red arsenal- one that increases self-confidence and screams opulence.

This time, you are not the romantic heroine. You are the ruler. A woman with the kind of beauty that can make a whole Empire shiver.

Wear this set in the comforts of your Kingdom or as under armour when you go out to conquer yet another Realm or Heart. Go ahead, put it on and let your inner Cleopatra shine through.

With love and adoration,

Empress Mimi

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

This month’s set epitomises the month of Valentine’s, and a set that Cleopatra herself would be proud of!

A stunning red bra with white mesh and red flower embroidery. It is made from satin and delicate and sheer stretch-tulle, is wireless and designed to enhance those curves whilst being comfortable. It has adjustable straps and a hook and eye fastening for the perfect fit.

The matching briefs are made from the same lustrous satin and stretchy sheer tulle with the stunning embroidery. They have an elastic waist for the ultimate comfort and the perfect fit for showing off those curves!

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 £14.71 per month (converted from dollars on the 10/02/2020)
  • Queen Box- Matching lingerie set, priced at £30.94 per month (converted from dollars on the 10/02/2020)
  • Empress Box- Matching set plus accessories such as kimonos, jewellery and loungewear priced at £77.10 per month (converted from dollars on the 10/02/2020).

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?
