After feeling out of touch with myself lately, I made it my mission to start loving myself again - inside and out. What better way to start practicing self-love than with the gift of some beautiful, figure loving lingerie to make me feel good. I was gifted this box from Empress Mimi and was very excited to receive and review it.* I love all the beauty boxes you can get, but lingerie in a subscription box?! Revolutionary.
There are three different monthly subscriptions boxes available;
The Mermaid Box - £25.00 for three different pairs of lovely, lacy underwear.
The Siren Box (which I received!) - £40.00 for a full set of lingerie.
The Empress Box - £70.00 for a luxury set of lingerie with 'playful accessories'.
There's no commitment or cancellation period for any of the boxes and you're also able to gift them!
Everything about this box was beautiful. Tied with ribbon, wrapped in pink tissue paper, with encouraging words as well as a card written to me - it was the perfect boost and I couldn't wait to try on what was inside!
When I received the email to say they'd like to send me a box I was quietly hoping for a body, so I was so excited when I opened it and found this delicate, pink piece.
Needless to say I couldn't wait to try it on. I sent over my waist, bust and hip measurements to Empress and they got the size absolutely perfect. It hugged my figure in all the right places and made me feel great looking in the mirror. (Had there not have been plumbers in my house I'd have considered wearing it all day!)
Another thing I really loved was the little bag given to pop your lingerie in! I actually think I may use this to carry around my underwear as well when I'm going somewhere over night. It's perfectly discreet and keeps your lingerie clean and safe from anything that could snag the lace, in your bag!
Most of all I love message that Empress Mimi conveys with this subscription, channeling self-love, confidence and self-expression. They created this product for you to love yourself and whilst lingerie is seen as something for your lover to admire (which is totally fine!), they want you to wear it for yourself too. You want to feel gorgeous? Pop it on under your work clothes and slaaaaay!
'There is a misconception that lingerie is exclusively for the bedroom. What is worn underneath your clothes directly reflects how you feel and the energy you emit. A touch of sensual lingerie is the equivalent to a power suit, one that is delicious little secret that only you know about.' - Empress Mimi Lingerie
