Update 04/03/22: this piece has been discontinued.
I had a bit of a lingerie trying-on session and photoshoot this week! If you want to see the other outfit I tried, check out my Halloween costume. Today, we’re looking at the Serpentine Lace Body from Lovehoney’s Fierce range.
Slinky and Snakey
The Serpentine “Snakeskin” Lace Body is a lace one-piece garment and one of the newer additions to Lovehoney’s gorgeous Fierce range. It’s sort of swimsuit shaped, with a deep plunging neckline, halterneck strap, and an open crotch.
The sheer lace has a snakeskin pattern, hence the name. A wet-look panel enhances the shape of the piece and draws attention to the waistline, and the piece closes with a bra clasp at the back. It also features completely removable suspender straps, so you can choose to wear it on its own or add a pair of sexy stockings to complete the look.
As soon as I saw this piece on the Lovehoney website, I knew I wanted to try it. I love one-piece lingerie, black lace, and things that accentuate the waistline – and this ticks all three boxes. As soon as it came out of the packaging, I couldn’t wait to try it on.
Let’s find out how it lived up to expectations!
Fit & Comfort
The Serpentine Lace Body comes in five sizes: S/M/L and then two plus sizes. I’m a UK size 14 and I ordered the large.
Overall, the fit was great. With the shoulder straps, halter, and bra clasps being completely adjustable, it’s easy to move things around to fit your unique body shape.
In a revelation that will surprise no-one, my F-cup (ish) boobs were barely contained in this piece. They stayed put when I was standing up or lying on my back, but as soon as I moved around or moved into my side, my nipples were popping out. So that’s something to be aware of if you’re large busted. But on the whole, the Serpentine Lace Body runs true to size.
This piece is also so genuinely comfortable. Because there are no wires or anything, there’s nothing to dig in or poke you in sensitive places. I could happily wear it for hours.
Look & Feel
This piece feels very “me”. It has a bondage-inspired aesthetic that is just incredibly sexy to me. I particularly love the way the halter strap draws attention to my cleavage, and the way the waistband accentuates the curve of my body.
The Serpentine Body makes me feel sexy in my body and makes me want to flirt and dance and fuck. Whenever we can go to sex clubs again, this will definitely be getting an outing!
Well, judge for yourselves. I think I look hot as hell, personally.
There are so many different ways you could wear this piece. It’s striking on its own, but you could also pair it with stockings and killer heels, add a cape and some fangs for a vampy Halloween look, or even wear it under some skintight leather-look trousers.
Sexy, comfy, and versatile. A+ all round.
Lovehoney’s lingerie team have knocked it out of the park yet again. Is there anything in the Fierce range I don’t like? If so, I haven’t found it yet. More of this please!
The Serpentine Lace Body retails for £32.99.
