[Nightwear Review] Lovehoney Jewel Satin Pearl Blush Plunging Teddy

If you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, you’ll know that pink isn’t generally my colour. I don’t gravitate towards it for clothing or lingerie, and it’s one of my least favourite colours for sex toys simply because it’s so overused, especially on products marketed as “for women”. Even so, occasionally something will catch my eye in a shade or style I wouldn’t normally go for. The Pearl Blush Plunging Teddy from Lovehoney’s Jewel line of lingerie and nightwear was one such piece.

Pearl Blush Plunging Teddy: Details & Aesthetics

I deliberated on whether to list this as lingerie or nightwear, as it really falls at the intersection of those two categories. I’m calling it nightwear for the purposes of this review but it can really be either, or both, depending on how it feels to you and how you choose to wear it.

The Pearl Blush Plunging Teddy is a one-piece with short shorts, an elasticated waistband, and a plunging neckline. The “Pearl Blush” refers to the pale peachy pink colour, which is actually really pretty. There’s black lace detailing along the neckline and around the bottom of the shorts. This provides a striking contrast to the pastel pink and gives the whole piece more of a sense of shape and structure. There is also a little rose gold coloured Lovehoney heart insignia in the centre where the neckline joins the waistband.

I think the Pearl Blush Plunging Teddy looks really cute on! The shape works well for my body, with the looser fit allowing plenty of boob room (more on that in a minute) and the nipped-in waist showing off my curves. I love the colour a lot more than I expected to, and the lace with a floral motif and scalloped edges is beautiful. This is one I’ll reach for when I’m feeling at my most femme.

Fit and Comfort

This piece is designed to be loose-fitting and comfortable. It’s available in sizes from Small (UK 6-8) to 6x (UK 26-28). I’m a size 12 and I received the Medium (UK 10-12). It fits pretty comfortably, but I think the Large (UK 14-16) would have worked even better for me as the waistband was a little snug. Other reviewers on the Lovehoney site have noted fit issues, particularly for people who are on the taller side. If you’re between sizes or prefer your nightwear loose, size up with this one.

Getting it on can be a little tricky if, like me, you have wider hips. It takes some careful jiggling to get it on and into place. Take your time and ease it up over your curves, as tugging it too hard could damage the delicate fabric.

The easy fit and lack of wires make this one comfortable and a joy to wear. There’s also plenty of room in the “cups” (term used loosely) for those of us with larger chests. I can actually wear this piece without falling out of it every five seconds! If you wanted a little extra support you could always pair the Jewel Blush Plunging Teddy with a bralet, but it works perfectly well on its own.

If I could change one thing, comfort-wise, it would be to make the shoulder straps a little wider. I’m not sure why, but spaghetti straps on clothing have always been a sensory challenge for me. The straps are adjustable at the back with a slider, so you can adjust it to get the right fit.

The Jewel Blush Plunging Teddy is made of a polyester/polyamide/elastane blend, which is soft against the skin and a delight to wear. Be aware that this kind of satin material can snag very easily, so keep it away from sharp fingernails and consider storing it in its own bag. The gusset is made of vagina-friendly 100% cotton, and the lace is soft and non-scratchy.

Too chilly to wear this on its own right now? Pair it with the matching robe for extra cosiness!

Verdict

A surprising winner! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I requested this one. But I’m really glad I did because it’s gorgeous, cute, and comfy.

I can see myself lounging around the house in this with my partner on hot summer evenings, or slipping into it at the tail-end of a sexy party.

The Jewel Pearl Blush Plunging Teddy retails for £29.99 ($36.99 US).
