[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Mindful Body

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?

Mindful Beauty

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?

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.

Final Verdict

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.

The Lovehoney Mindful Body retails for £29.99.

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Captivate Black Lace Spanking Dress

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, which can mean only one thing: a host of new lingerie and sex toy offerings! This is my third review of Lovehoney’s new Fifty Shades of Grey-inspired Captivate range (check out parts 1 and 2 here.)

By the way: there’s still time to join our free smut slam if you’re looking for a fun and socially-distanced Valentine’s Day activity!

Today we’re looking at…

Captivate Black Lace Spanking Dress

I love one-piece lingerie. I love it because it’s usually relatively comfortable, easy to wear, and easy to get on and off during sex club adventures. (*sigh* sex clubs… remember those?) It’s also often more forgiving for those of us who are well-endowed in the boob department.

So I was excited to try out the Captivate Spanking Dress.

Fifty Shades of Grey spanking dress packaging

It came packaged in a cardboard sleeve featuring a picture of the model and a hilarious(ly terrible) Fifty Shades quote on the back.

Inside, the dress was packaged inside a plastic film wrapper, with a piece of cardboard inside to help it keep its shape.

First impressions: wow, this is super tiny! I can’t see any way I’m ever going to fit in that! However, I quickly realised that it is also super stretchy. This “one size” version fits me (a size 12/14) comfortably, and is supposed to fit anyone from size 8-16. There’s also two plus-size versions, one to fit sizes 18-24 and one to fit sizes 26-30.

The floral mesh is pretty and feminine with just a little bit of a kink-inspired edge. The skirt reaches to just below the butt, and the hem and neckline are edged with pretty floral lace trim. The deep V-neck gives amazing cleavage, and the collar-style neck adds to the soft BDSM aesthetic.

At the back, the butt is fully cut away which is both sexy as hell and allows easy access for impact play. Wearing it just makes me want to bend over and get spanked!

The Captivate Black Lace Spanking Dress retails for £24.99 from Lovehoney.

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Empress Body

Today is the first of two lingerie reviews that will be featured in my #12DaysofLovehoney series. I first received pictures of the Empress collection quite a while ago, and I was smitten from first sight! It was hard to choose the piece I liked most, but I eventually settled on the Empress body.

Let’s dive in, shall we? Oh, and while you’re here, check out all the posts in this series.

Empress Body: First Impressions

Empress is a line of black and red lingerie from Lovehoney. The line features four different styles, and all are also available in plus size variations.

The Empress Body is a one-piece black lace body with red satin detailing. It features a plunging neckline, high-cut leg, and low back. There are also removeable suspenders, so you can wear it with matching stockings or by itself. Here’s how it looks on the model:

My first impression when I took the Empress Body out of the packaging was of quality and luxury. The materials feel lovely and it’s obviously beautifully made. I couldn’t wait to try it on and see how it looked.

Fit & Comfort

The Empress Body fits me really well! The waist band is stretchy and the bra style clasps at the back have three settings. The shoulder straps and suspenders are also highly adjustable.

It even contains my boobs reliably unless I lie down on my side (in which case they do whatever they damn well please and I am yet to find the garment that can stop them!) It’s nice to have an item of lingerie I can walk around in without feeling as though I’m having to tuck my nipples back into it every few seconds.

I wear a size 14 and I ordered the large as recommended, which ran true to size.

The Empress Body is even reasonably comfortable. The lace is soft and feels nice against my skin, and there are no uncomfortable wires or pinchy/scratchy bits.

Another nice touch is the popper fastenings on the crotch. My partner appreciated being able to pop them open and says they give the Empress Body an extra few points from him!

Look & Materials

The Empress Body is just absolutely gorgeous! The scalloped lace is luxurious and elegent, while the red detailing is super striking.

Me wearing the Lovehoney Empress Body

I particularly love the shape of this piece. The red band sits at the narrowest part of the waist and creates a gorgeous hourglass silhouette. And the plunging neckline emphasises the breasts and creates phenomenal cleavage!

I feel so sexy in this item. It’s been a long time since a piece of lingerie made me feel this good.

Final thoughts

I absolutely adore this piece – I’m so, so impressed with it! I hope we can go to sex clubs again sometime in the not too distant future so that I can wear it and show it off. I think it would pair wonderfully with some ruby red sky-high heels.

The Empress Body retails for £29.99 – a steal for a piece of this quality! It’s a new favourite.

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Fierce Serpentine Lace Body

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.

Me in the Serpentine Lace Body from Lovehoney

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.

Final Thoughts

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.
