Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Psychedelic Xtra VIP Box Review – April 2019
Each month, new lingerie looks are added to their size- and skin-tone-inclusive catalog, which features a mix of ferociously flirty and blissfully casual pieces. Shop for something new, skip the month to avoid a charge, or have $49.95 saved to your account for the future. Members also get discounts off retail prices all month long, plus first dibs on limited edition products.
This is my second Xtra VIP Box—check out my first one here! (It’ll give you a good idea of the range of styles you can get!) these curated collections of lingerie and accessories are usually released at the top of the month, and they go FAST when they do!
I originally signed up to take advantage of their 2 for $29 bras deal. Part of the sign-up process involves taking a fun quiz about my personal style so that Savage x Fenty can recommend products for me each month. If you’re new to Savage x Fenty, you’ll quickly learn that their personality is fun, hip, and sexy. For instance, they ask about your lingerie style and have you pick from responses like “Bossy”, “Playful and Girly”, and “Hot AF”! It’s honestly half the fun of the subscription—not to be all millennial about it, but I love that Savage x Fenty is a brand that feels like me.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Savage x Fenty Xtra VIP Box for April 2019 Review
Here’s the paperwork that came with this month’s lingerie.
Unlined “Psychedelic Embroidery” Bra, Size 36B
The exclusive looks in this month’s box were such a departure from last month’s black, athleisurely pieces. The coordinating bra and panty both feature rainbow harlequin mesh with hot pink embroidered lace details. At first, I thought these looks would be a bit bright and frilly for my tastes, but I kind of like how they look on. The colorful diamond pattern becomes isn’t as noticeable as I thought—the pink embroidery breaks up the shapes so that the subtle rainbow colors look almost watercolor-y. And per usual, this unlined bra was super comfortable. It fit like a glove, with no gapping nor poking, though it does have an underwire and two little wires on the side to help maintain its shape.
“Psychedelic Embroidery” Panty, Size Large
This look isn’t the best in terms of avoiding panty lines—the string sides weren’t “cutting in”, but they did interrupt the smooth line of my hips—but it is surprisingly comfortable and breezy (which, let’s be real, is much appreciated this time of year). As a gal who’s rounder through the hips and butt, I’m always pleased when undies like these fit so nicely. The back panel did puff out a little bit (rather than laying flush against my body), but not in an “ill-fitting” way. They’re great for lounging around in, or for under flowy summer sundresses where lines aren’t an issue.
Cameo Pink Thong, Size Large
This slinky little thong is unlike anything I currently have in my undies drawer. The blush pink color and delicate floral lace is much more romantic and soft than the colors/fabrics I usually reach for. And let’s talk about those GOLD CHAIN sides! I kind of love it—there’s no way to not feel Rihanna-levels of sexy while wearing something like this, even if it’s under the most innocuous t-shirt and jeans.
To make things even sassier, my Xtra box included a set of three charms to add to my thong. I could add them to a more G-rated bracelet, zipper pull, or necklace. I honestly love the little diamond-shaped gem. I might actually pop it on my keychain so I can see it as often as possible.
Cotton Candy Robe, Size M/L
And thus, we come to my absolute favorite item in this month’s VIP box—this silky soft robe! It took 31 years, but I finally discovered the joys of robe life last year. Unfortunately, my terry bathrobe is better suited for chilly fall and winter lounging than humid summer evenings. But this faux-silk robe? It feels light as a feather to wear and super soft and luxurious. It’s become my go-to for puttering around the house, and I’ve fallen asleep in it too many times to count. Obsessed.
But that’s not all! I also got a set of Rihanna playing cards! The ones with pics of Rihanna are awesome, but I’m REALLY into the jumbled suit symbols. They look like sequins suspended in water, just sort of floating and clumping together.
The Verdict: This Savage x Fenty Xtra VIP box was SO different from the ultra-minimal leggings and bodysuit I got in last month’s box. These flirty, pink undies are a new vibe for my underwear drawer, but I’m glad I nabbed them! These looks are comfy, unique, and maybe best of all, they really are helping me own my sexy side!
