CHC Lingerie September 2018 Review
This subscription is customized based on your size and preferences from a survey you fill out after subscribing, so everyone receives something different each month. But that’s part of the fun! This was my first time receiving the lingerie subscription:
There is usually a handwritten card with some styling suggestions. This subscription pushes the idea of lingerie as outerwear (you can see some examples on their website) but I don’t have quite the right accessories to make the outerwear concept work with the piece I received this month (though the suggestions in the card are helpful if I am looking to go shopping). Actually, my wardrobe is lacking in really basic items because I never bought them after I lost weight in 2016. Totally my fault.
I said I preferred a more modest style when asked about my preferences, and I also mentioned liking bright colors (including hot pink) so I was definitely happy to see this color. (I am not quite bold enough to model this for you and the pictures might be NSFW anyway…also, FYI, I don’t have a dress model.)
This fits well. I added some comments to the stylists regarding my strange sizing (like different parts of my body run the range from XS through nearly M) and I definitely think those were taken into account.
It is also in really, really good condition. Here are some additional shots:
The lace was in wonderful shape and definitely added to the overall look.
And the fabric was clean with no rips or tears or stains (the outer layer was see-through although there was a lining from the waist down). One thing CHC Vintage does a great job of is finding and sending high-quality pieces but if you ever have a problem they are definitely willing to work with you to make it right.
Verdict: I had only the vaguest notion of what to expect with the CHC Vintage Lingerie subscription, basically just the pictures on their website. Although I did give some preferences for things I might like, I didn’t strongly oppose any options (I mean, I still wear slips sometimes, even though I know they are much less popular than they once were), so there was still a good deal of surprise in my shipment, which is part of the fun. I received a pretty and feminine negligee in a color I absolutely love, and it fits quite well, and I feel like my preferences were taken into consideration, so I am happy with my first shipment!
