Empress Mimi Review by Gemma- October 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. It has been a few months since I have reviewed this, but you never forget a good box!

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.

If you missed my unboxing of this on the facebook group, you can check it out here on our YouTube channel:

This month’s theme is My Fair Daisy and came in the cutest little box emblazoned with the theme and the Empress Mimi logo. Such beautiful presentation, I am always excited to see what is inside!

And what delights awaited me inside this luxurious box? 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 a group of women adorned in daisies and on the back it reads:

“Forget the Madness of the world. Put some Daisies in your hair. Gather Flowers for your windowsill. Plant some peace in your soul. Grow the love in your heart, And you will surely be the harvester of great joy. 

Dear Empress,

The My Fair Daisy box is a tribute to the Three Graces who symbolize radiance, joy and flowering beauty. 

Their raison d’etre was pleasure- they were the goddesses of play, happiness, relaxation, charm, beauty, nature and creativity; all that was good! (the goddesses we wanna be besties with!)

The Three Graces blissfully beautified the first woman and adorned her in flowers, garlands and fine jewellery and were even involved in the birthing, bathing and clothing of Aphrodite herself. 

They are associated with spring flowers and bestowing goodwill and wellbeing on both Gods and Mortals alike. 

Inspired by the joyful innocence and beauty of the humble daisy, this set is the perfect way to celebrate the simple things in life and imbue your world with magic and beauty. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson said that the earth laughs in flowers. Whatever you think is wrong, look at Mother Nature and watch her laugh at our worries and fears in her infinite wisdom. 

And like the Three Graces, just live your best life! Keep sprinkling kindness, pleasure and mirth everyplace this journey takes you.

This too shall pass. You shall overcome. And once the storm is over, daisies will bloom across the beautiful world once more.

Love Empress Mimi”

I love these little themes and the stories behind them- it is very empowering!

The set is absolutely stunning as always!

The first item was the My Fair Daisy Bralette. This has been crafted from soft stretch mesh flocked with polka dots and features pretty, sparkling daisies along the straps and inbetween the bust. The daisies adorn the bra straps, which are far too pretty to keep hidden! There is also a separate strap which attaches behind your back and comes down your side for added sex appeal.  The bra is wire free, so it doesn’t feel restricting and the straps are adjustable to make sure you get the perfect fit. The fabric is also light and breathable.  I adore this, it really is such high quality and it fits like an absolute dream!

Next up were the My Fair Daisy Panties, which are so cute! They are made with the same soft stretch mesh and polka dot pattern and also have a sprinkling of the daisies on the front to match the bralette perfectly. They are pretty, but so comfortable too- the elasticated waist gives you room to move around without feeling restricted and the fabric is light and breathable. I absolutely adore these!

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 £14.59 per month (converted from dollars on the 14/10/2020)
  • Queen Box- Matching lingerie set, priced at £30.69 per month (converted from dollars on the 14/10/2020)
  • Empress Box- Matching set plus accessories such as kimonos, jewellery and loungewear priced at £76.47 per month (converted from dollars on the 14/10/2020).

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!

My Verdict

This is 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?
