Two of the things I love, which you’ll know if you read this blog regularly, are gorgeous lingerie and sustainability. Anything that combines the two? Hell yeah, I’m all over it! That’s why I was delighted to receive an item from the new Lovehoney Mindful range.
I received the Mindful Mint Green Leopard Print Seamless Body, which we’ll take a look at in a minute. But first, what makes the Mindful range different?
Lovehoney Mindful is a range of lingerie and underwear made from recycled seamfree materials such as recycled lace and renewed nylon. Every aspect of the pieces, including the elastics, are made from GRS-certified, pre-consumer recycled materials which would otherwise end up in landfill.
Even the packaging is sustainable. It is made from cornstarch (don’t ask me how – science is cool, y’all) and is plastic-free and 100% compostable.
Pretty cool, no?
Lovehoney Mindful Mint Green Leopard Print Body
This piece (hereafter the Mindful Body for short) called to me straight away. I love comfortable, easy-on (and easy-off) one-pieces, and this looked like it would fill all those requirements.
The Lovehoney Mindful Body is shaped like a swimsuit or leotard. It is available in sizes from 8 to 26, and features high-cut legs and a thick central band that sits around the waist. It opens at the crotch with three poppers.
Look & Style
The Lovehoney Mindful Body is very different to many of the things you’ll normally see in a lingerie store. It’s also quite a change from things I’d usually pick up for myself.
For starters, the mint green is an unusual colour for lingerie – a genre of clothing that tends to favour black, reds, purples, and pinks. But it’s also really pretty, and I love the leopard print!
I sent a pic to one of my flirtfriends and their response was “I’m now picturing you doing an 80s workout video!” And, yes, this does have some distinctly 80s vibes!
The curve of my waist is one of my favourite bits of my body. For that reason, I love the waist band, which accentuates that area. I also like the high leg cut, which makes my short legs look longer!
You can wear this piece on its own, for a night in at home or a night out at a suitable sex-positive venue… or you could pair it with other items to make a full outfit.
I’m looking forward to wearing it with a swishy black miniskirt and killer heels, but I think it’d also look fabulous with some skintight leather trousers. Honestly, stick a bra on under it and wear it with jeans or a skirt, and you could get away with it to a vanilla bar or nightclub. A truly versatile item!
Fit & Comfort
Oh my goodness, this thing is so unbelievably comfy! To begin with, the fabric is lovely and soft, and feels gentle against the skin.
The Lovehoney Mindful Body is pretty stretchy, so don’t worry too much if you’re between sizes or not sure which to go for. I’m a UK size 12 right now and I ordered a M/L, which says it is for sizes 12-14. The fit is reasonably true to size, though if you’re unsure I would suggest going a size up rather than a size down.
Also, because there are no cups or wires or anything, the Mindful Body is not only super comfortable but actually contains my boobs! I don’t feel like I’m going to fall out of it with every movement, which is pretty challenging when you’re a G-cup. This piece has racerback style straps which are fully adjustable for the most comfortable fit.
The Lovehoney Mindful Body is also super easy to get in and out of! Just step into it like you would a swimsuit and pull the straps over your shoulders, and you’re ready to go. This is a nice change from many of the more, erm, complex garments in my lingerie collection.
This cute, quirky piece has me feeling like one sexy kitty! Add in the comfortable fit and the eco credentials, and you’re on to a winner.
The Mindful range contains a selection of gorgeous pieces, including some very sexy masculine styles. They all use eco-friendly materials and offer inclusive sizing.
