CHC Vintage Lingerie October 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 second time receiving the lingerie subscription:
There is usually a handwritten card with some styling suggestions. The level of detail just gives me the feeling that the people at CHC Vintage are really excited by what they do (this is a bit shorter than usual but it makes sense considering the piece I received).
1970s Lingerie Set
This month I received a robe and nightgown set (see photos of the individual items below). These items are definitely suitable for wearing around the house and a little bit glamorous, but also what I would call “diaphanous” and not really something I should be modeling on the internet!
The set includes this nightgown which is long (but not too long; I’m 5’5”) and has a pretty forgiving fit. I did say when providing preferences that I had been into pink lately and they are clearly keeping that in mind.
There is also a robe. I don’t have quite the right vocabulary to describe the fabric, but it’s very soft and silky and smooth-feeling (and also in very good condition, clean, etc.). I think it really works well with the nightgown as a set (and is quite a bit nicer than the random, mismatched pairings of sweatpants and t-shirts you usually find me in when I am lounging around the house).
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 robe and nightgown set that is just so comfortable to wear and a fun change from my usual nighttime wardrobe.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you subscribe today? No, every box is different based on your style and size preferences.
