CHC Vintage Lingerie November 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 third 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.
1970s Sleep Dress
This month I received a sleep dress. I really like how there appears to be a graduated color effect in the skirt part. Once again, this is a bit too risqué on top for me to model on MSA. (I know there are styling suggestions in the card, but I don’t often have the suggested pieces, though I do use them as a guide for future shopping.)
It fits pretty well, although the shoulder straps are a little long (I have a small torso). But I think that is easily fixed (either with pins for a quick fix or at an alterations shop or by my mother for a more permanent solution).
Here is the back. I can actually see wearing a sweater over this and maybe a slip under it (just to make sure the light doesn’t catch me the wrong way and reveal anything! I do have a knee-length ivory-colored slip that would work but no sweaters in a matching color at the moment) and going shopping or out to dinner or something.
Here’s a closer shot of the lace. It’s in really good shape considering this sleep dress is possibly older than I am (I was born in 1977).
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 sleep dress that actually could work pretty well (with appropriate accessories) as a skirt/dress.
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.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $90 for three months, so you are paying an average of $30 per month (which includes Priority Mail shipping).
