I was super excited to find out about the new range of lingerie being launched at Lovehoney. I love lingerie and I am a total sucker when it comes to lace items. Even in everyday wear, I love necklines or sleeves with lace. So lace and wet look together for a lingerie piece is perfection in my eyes.
I was really excited for my Lovehoney Captivate Me wet look dress to arrive.
Dresses aren’t an item of lingerie I usually pick to wear inside the bedroom, more an item I wear outside it, if I’m honest. I usually opt for basques/corsets. Now, I don’t really know why, I guess I find they highlight my hourglass figure and when trying to be as confident as you can be and release your “inner sex minx” you want something you feel you can look your best in. So I was a complete newbie trying this dress out and it turned into a pleasant and pleasurable discovery. The first surprise was the look of approval on my husband’s face. I genuinely was shocked he liked it.
Slipping on the dress, I needed help off my husband to fasten the back of it so if this is an item of lingerie you want to surprise your partner in, it might be a bit of a bugger to achieve that element. It hugs my petite 5’4 size 10 frame and highlights my curves perfectly. The dress creates a really pretty
heart shaped hourglass silhouette which highlight my “mom” hips , actually complements my boobage while the wet look sheen gives the appearance of a flawless tummy region! After carrying three children, this area of my body is far from perfect. Anyone that has children understands how hard it can be toning up those tummy muscles after being stretched and I think wet look material does the job well as the sheen of the material teamed up with the “naughty” factor are the perfect distraction to have your partner concentrating else where.
The back of the Lovehoney Captivate Me Wet look Lace Long Sleeve Dress has a concave hem, which sits directly above my bum and is also completely open, leaving my shoulders completely exposed. There is something so sexy about shoulders in my opinion. It doesn’t matter what sex to me, women or men, but exposed shoulder blades really get my pulse going. The rest of the back of the dress has a panel of really feminine looking lace keeping the lady feel there until you follow the body down to the wet look piece that I were to “accidentally” drop something would give an eye full to the on looker, adding in that naughty factor again.
The whole piece is very well made, fantastic quality with no loose threads or stitching to report of before and after washing it. As it is delicate, it’s care label states it’s a hand wash only item. I opted to let it drip dry on a hanger. It maintained it’s shape well and fitted me exactly the same after washing.
This item was sent to me in exchange for an honest and impartial review – this however in no way changes my opinion on the item. What I honestly think, you read! All images displayed are of myself modelling Lovehoney Captivate Me Wet look Lace Long Sleeve Dress.
