[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Hourglass Open-Cup Crotchless Body

If you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, you’ll know that my biggest complaint when it comes to lingerie is often that my G-cup boobs simply won’t fit in the garment properly. One of the ways around that problem? Open-cup lingerie! I recently received the Lovehoney Hourglass Open-Cup Crotchless Body to review. Did it live up to expectations? Let’s find out…

Lovehoney Hourglass Open-Cup Crotchless Body

The Lovehoney Hourglass Body is a one piece bodysuit made of black floral lace and microfibre. It features removeable straps, which frame your breasts as well as helping the garment stay up (though the top is elasticy enough that it stays up fairly well without them). It also features removeable suspender straps.

The Lovehoney Hourglass Body opens at the crotch and is adorned in the centre of the microfibre section with the Lovehoney heart insignia.

First impressions were positive. The piece looks well-made, the fabrics are soft and stretchy, and the aesthetic is sexy.

Fit and Comfort

The Lovehoney Hourglass Body is designed to be wearable either on its own or under clothing as “shapewear”. This means that comfort and fit are of paramount importance – this is something you could potentially wear all night under a dress, not just slip into for bedroom wear.

This piece is super comfy, as lingerie goes, as it’s pleasingly stretchy and feels super soft against the skin. The straps are fully adjustable, so you can set them to suit your body (or remove them entirely, if you prefer). I’m not much of a stockings person but if you are, thigh-highs and killer heels would be a great way to complete the look.

Fit wise, the Lovehoney Hourglass Body runs pretty true to size. I received a Medium and it fits my size 12 frame well. If you’re between sizes, I’d recommend going a size down rather than up, since this piece is stretchy and is supposed to cling snugly.

Since this piece is open cup, you don’t need to worry about cup sizes! (A godsend for people like me who are well-endowed in the chest department). You can easily wear it either by itself or with a bra.

The Lovehoney Hourglass Body is available for all sizes from UK6 to UK28.

Look and Wearability

(This section discussed body confidence and body image issues. Skip to the next header if that’s not something you want to engage with today!)

This is one of those pieces that I’ll wear again and again because it makes me feel confident and sexy as hell.

Despite striving to be body-positive and doing continual work on my self-image, there are still parts of my own body that I struggle with. Most notably, my stomach. So pieces that hide the bits of my body I’m less confident about, while emphasising the bits I do love (waist, boobs), are basically the holy grail of lingerie to me. I’m also really into the way the lace panels cling to the curve of my hips.

The look is a kind of femme soft-bondage, especially with the straps left on. It creates a sexy hourglass (hence the name) silhouette. The floral lace is pretty, and I really love the little diamond detailing around the edges.

Simply gorgeous!

Verdict

Yes – an absolute winner! If you’re looking for something to wear under your clothes and surprise your lover with, or just to feel fabulous in the bedoom (/sex club), look no further.

The Lovehoney Hourglass Open-Cup Crotchless Body retails for £32.99.

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Peony Lilac Sheer Mesh and Lace Crotchless Body

I love purple and its variations, and I love femme things. Is it any wonder, then, that I spotted the Peony range at Lovehoney and knew I needed to try it? The range is available in both black and lilac. I received the Peony Sheer Mesh and Lace Crotchless Body in lilac.

Peony Crotchless Body: First Impressions and Aesthetic

The Peony Sheer Mesh and Lace Crotchless Body is actually really a cross between a bodysuit and a babydoll. It’s an all-in-one garment made of pretty floral lace and sheer mesh with spot detail.

When I took it out of the packaging, I was immediately impressed with the softness of the materials. Lovehoney lingerie tends to offer a good combination of affordable prices and quality materials, which I love.

The top part is a halterneck bodysuit with a deep neckline, plunging to the elasticated waistband which is adorned by a bow in the same organza as the halterneck and back tie. The half-covered crotch gives way to adjustable straps which sit at the point where butt meets upper thighs. A flyaway half skirt finishes the look.

The Peony Crotchless Body in lilac is a classically feminine look. My inner femme loves it! If you like the shape but pastels aren’t for you, the black version is sexy in a different way.

Comfort, Fit, and Boob Coverage

The Peony Crotchless Body comes in two sizes: one size standard (for UK sizes 8-16) and one size plus (for UK sizes 18-24.) Because it’s adjustable, this piece is fairly flexible in terms of sizing. You can tie the halterneck and back tie as tightly or loosely as you need. The leg straps are also adjustable.

I’m about a size 12 and I found the Peony Crotchless Body to be a comfortable fit in most areas. The one downside is the boob coverage. I’m not sure if it’s due to the halterneck design or tie fastenings, but I found that this piece offers significantly less coverage than some of the more traditional bodysuit items in my collection.

The Peony Crotchless Body contains my G-cups somewhat when I’m standing upright, but as soon as I lie down (or more around too much) they haven’t got a prayer.

I like the piece enough that I’ll probably still wear it occasionally anyway, but you should be aware of this. I’d speculate that anyone larger than about a D-cup might have this issue.

The Peony Crotchless Body is non-wired. That and the soft fabric makes it comfortable and enjoyable to wear.

Final Thoughts

A mixed verdict on this one. It’s pretty and fun in that flirty, feminine way I enjoy. It’s soft, comfortable, and fairly easy to take on and off. But the boob coverage (or lack thereof) was a significant downside for me.

Gorgeous, but maybe better suited to those with smaller chests than me.

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Moonflower Emerald Green Lace Strappy Body

I first spotted this piece when my partner sent me a link to this Instagram post. As soon as I saw the Moonflower Lace Strappy Body in emerald green from Lovehoney, I knew I had to own it! Happily, my friends at Lovehoney HQ were able to hook me up.

How did I get on with it in reality?

Moonflower Emerald Green Lace Strappy Body: Aesthetic

This one-piece bodysuit is made of lace and mesh in a gorgeous, vibrant shade of green. It is wire-free and features a plunging V-neck and criss-cross detailing at the front and back. It is nipped in at the waist with a broad ribbon accent, and features a popper opening at the crotch.

I really love how this piece looks. The colour is beautiful and unusual, making a change from the more common blacks, reds, and pinks of the lingerie world. The delicate floral lace is lovely, and the strappy detailing at the back is super sexy.

I love this type of shape on my body. I think my hourglass waist is pretty much my best feature, and this style shows that off. A plunging neckline will always be sexy, and the criss-cross straps across the cleavage add an eye-drawing touch.

Sex-appeal wise, this one scores top marks from me.

Fit and Comfort

I gravitate towards non-wired lingerie for two reasons: it’s far more comfortable (you will not convince me that anyone finds being poked in the ribs with a wire pleasant!) and it’s far more likely to actually fit me.

The Moonflower Lace Strappy Body is a one-size piece, which you’ll know by now I don’t love as a concept. People come in such a variety of shapes and sizes that the idea of “one size” is a little absurd to me. The Moonflower Lace Strappy Body is supposed to fit sizes 8-16. There’s also a plus-size version for sizes 18-24. (Side note: Lovehoney are killing it with their plus-size lingerie offerings at the moment!)

I’m currently a size 12-ish and I found the Moonflower Lace Strappy Body to be a pretty good fit. The fabric and waistband are somewhat stretchy, and both the shoulder straps and waistband can be adjusted using the sliders.

As is often the case with standard lingerie sizing, this piece only “sort of” contains my G-cup boobs. When I’m standing up or lying on my back, it’s fine, but as soon as I lie on my side or raise my hands above my head, they pop out. Not a big problem, but something to be aware of if you’re well endowed in the chest department.

The Moonflower Lace Strappy Body is made of super soft fabric that feels lovely to wear. This isn’t cheap, scratchy lace. It feels sensual and luxurious against the skin.

Verdict

The Moonflower Lace Strappy Body is a winner! It’s very hard to get one-size lingerie right, and inevitably it won’t work for all bodies. But overall this piece is pretty, sensual, comfortable, and flattering. Yes, yes, and yes!

I feel gorgeously femme in this piece and I can’t wait to show it off at a sexy party when we can go to those again.
