Update 04/03/22: this set has been discontinued.
I deliberated whether to define this set as lingerie, but ultimately decided it fell better into the category of nightwear. Which I’ve never reviewed before. Exciting! Today we’re looking at the Lovehoney Cherry Blossom Cami Set.
I loved this set the moment my contact at Lovehoney sent me the pictures ahead of the release date. It was just so pretty that I knew I needed to own it. Let’s see how the reality matched up.
The Cherry Blossom Cami Set is so gorgeous and feminine. I love the delicate floral pattern, the pretty lace edging, and the colour that reminds me of the sky on a summer day.
The thin cross-straps leave your upper back on display for an extra little bit of sex appeal.
Soft and Silky…
Nightwear should be comfortable first and foremost. So I was pleased to find that this set is made of lovely, soft satin. It feels luxurious to wear, and my partner enjoyed stroking it, too!
The lace is also nice and soft, not at all scratchy. I usually avoid lace on nightwear because it can be a sensory nightmare, but this lace is soft enough to get away with it.
This set comes in Small, Medium and Large sizes. There’s also an identical plus-size version. I got the Large, which corresponds to a 14/16 in UK sizes. I wear a 14 in most clothing brands these days.
The bottoms fit beautifully. The waistband is elasticated, making them suitable for the range of body shapes that fall into this size bracket.
The straps on the top are adjustable, allowing you to make them shorter or longer to fit you properly. Sadly, the back band on the top is not stretchy and I found it just a little too tight to be completely comfortable. If, like me, you prefer your nightwear to fit more loosely, I recommend going one size up from your usual.
It doesn’t cover an awful lot in the chest department if, like me, you have huge boobs. I don’t quite fall out of it, but it certainly leaves little to the imagination!
The Cherry Blossom Cami Set is easy to put on and take off. Just make sure the cross-straps are in the right place so you don’t get tangled up when you pull it over your head!
Care & Cleaning
The Cherry Blossom Cami Set is hand-wash only. Use a bowl of warm (not hot) water and some gentle detergent. Alternatively, the hand-wash setting on your washing machine will be fine if you put the items in a protective washing bag.
The satin material snags very, very easily. For that reason, I recommend storing your Cami Set out of the way of anything scratchy or sharp (bra clasps are THE WORST for this.) You could also keep it in a lingerie bag for extra protection.
This set is beautiful. The cherry blossom pattern is gorgeous and the blue satin is soft and luxurious to wear. I’ll probably only wear the top for sexy purposes rather than comfortable nightwear purposes due to the fit issue, but I can definitely see myself wearing the bottoms for lazing around the house (and even sleeping, on the rare occasions that I don’t sleep naked.)
The Cherry Blossom Cami Set retails for £29.99 at Lovehoney. While you’re there, check out the whole range!
