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:

CHC Vintage Lingerie November 2018 - Card Inside

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).

CHC Vintage Lingerie November 2018 - Nightgown Back

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.

CHC Vintage Lingerie November 2018 - Lace

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).

  1. I guess because I grew up in the 70’s and this is what my grandmothers both wore then, I think of this as just an old nightgown,not collectable vintage clothing. I certainly know the items are cleaned but to me this is the equivalent of used underwear. I apologize for my opinion of it upsets anyone and appreciate differing points of view.

    • I’m the same. I’ve bought and worn plenty of beautiful, used clothing but this is just a little to intimate for me, too.

  2. This is gorgeous. This sub has become one of my favorite to see and read. I love the idea of vintage lingerie. There is no cringe factor for me, as Sheila expressed. I think the vintage factor makes these pieces special and certainly unique. Who doesn’t want to feel special when they are wearing a beautiful piece of lingerie.

    • Vintage lingerie is apparently a big thing on Etsy (so probably elsewhere as well). Anyway, it’s not like the people at CHC Vintage aren’t cleaning and inspecting the condition of everything before sending it out. I think it is fun to see what I will get each month and to have a window into what was popular/stylish in years past (since that is not really an area of expertise for me). I think all the long, flowing garments are fun and I really appreciate the curation as well — I gave a lot of specific comments and I feel like I’m being listened to.

      • Thanks, Reagan. I’ll check out the offerings on Etsy. I really like most of the style trends of the 70’s. Now that those lines and shapes are informing current clothing design, it is nice to see how these looks are transformed into a more modern style ethos. Yet, it is cool to see the real thing.

  3. I can’t, nope this is just too personal. It’s like cuddling up with a hotel bedspread. Yeck.

  4. This is GORGEOUS wow. How do they not run out of vintage lingerie. I can’t imagine much is left in good shape.
