Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie line recently announced its Xtra VIP membership—a clothing shopping subscription plan that works a lot like Fabletics and ShoeDazzle.
Each month, new lingerie looks are added to their size- and skin-tone-inclusive catalog, which features a mix of flirty, romantic, and casual pieces. Shop for something new, skip the month to avoid a charge, or have $49.95 saved to your account to use in the future. Members also get discounts off retail prices all month long, plus first dibs on limited edition products.
Each month, Savage X Fenty curates a new "Xtra VIP box" of new lingerie styles and cheeky accessories. They go fast, but I've been pleased with the value I've gotten from each collection. I'll be reviewing the August box today!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
About the Savage X Fenty Xtra VIP Membership
The Subscription: Savage X Fenty Xtra VIP Membership
The Cost: Make a purchase at the top of the month, and that'll cover the cost of your membership. (Looking at the site, most pieces are priced around $15-$50.) You can also choose to skip the month and avoid any charge. Or, take no action, and a $49.95 charge will be saved as store credit that you can use in the future.
The Products: Quality lingerie in a wide range of sizes (bras range from 32A-44DDD, and undies and other apparel run from XS to 3X), colors (their looks cover 4 different skin-tone-inspired shades as well as a rainbow of brights), and styles (from super sexy to simple and comfortable).
THIS JUST IN: As of May 8, 2019, Savage X Fenty has started offering DDD, G, and H cups for some of their most popular styles.
Good to Know: Members get access to VIP pricing all month long, as well as access to special offers and limited edition Xtra VIP Boxes, which feature special or first-look products.
Savage X Fenty "Groovy Glistenette" Xtra VIP Box Review for August 2019
First item out of the box—a card featuring Rihanna looking rad (as usual) in the August Xtra VIP styles. There's a list of all of the items included in the box on the reverse side of the card, plus a pic of the free gift for the month, which is a Rihanna air freshener. Speaking of which...
Savage X Fenty Air Freshener
Here's a closer look at the air freshener. I think it's kind of fun to imagine having a pair of Savage X Fenty lingerie dangling from my mirror, but alas, my sensitive sinuses meant I started sneezing the second I pulled this out of its plastic. The scent is light and fresh and probably wouldn't bother most folks. I've just got a very sensitive nose that can be pretty particular about perfumes!
Groovy Glistenette Unlined Bra, Size 36B
Friends, I am in love with this unlined look. It does have an underwire, but as with most Savage X Fenty underwire bras I've tried, I didn't find it poky or uncomfortable. The fabric is this really cool, sheer, sort of pastel tie-dye fabric (technically 75% polyamide, 25% elastane) with a very subtle shimmer that gives the whole look an iridescent quality. I felt very pretty in this relatively casual, frills-free bra. Plus, I appreciated that despite the synthetic material, the bra felt light as air and cool against my skin.
Groovy Glistenette High-Waist Thong, Size Large
The second piece in the set is a high-waisted thong made from the same lightweight, sheer, slightly shimmery fabric. Sometimes synthetic fabric undies can get kind of uncomfy—they just feel... stuffy, or overly thick. Or the butter-smooth fabric scrunches around more than I want it to through the day. But this pair, partially because of its shape, I think, fared very well. Again, I found the weight of the fabric really breezy for a synthetic, and the fact that these undies sat high on my hips meant there was limited scrunching around as I walked around town running errands. I've never tried a high-waisted thong before, and I found myself really liking this sort of sporty, curve-hugging cut. Sometimes regular, lower-waist thongs can feel a little flimsy on my chubbier bottom half, or they start cutting into my pudge as they bunch or roll up on the sides. This cut, on the other hand, stayed flush with my silhouette and made me feel comfortable, confident, and sexy all day long.
Oooo-hoo-hoo-hooooo, what do we have here? Surprisingly enough, this isn't the first crop I've received in a Savage X Fenty Xtra VIP box. (The last one was lavender.) This one has a bit of a vaudeville quality to it, don't you think? Full transparency, I don't think I've ever been the type to go looking for a crop myself. (I used my first one to lazily pat my cats off of my crowded nightstand without having to get out of bed...) However, it's this kind of fun, super-flirty stuff that gives Savage X Fenty its draw, right? Who knows, maybe I'll find a place for this puppy in a sassy Halloween costume...
The Verdict: I have been so impressed with Savage X Fenty's lingerie. The fit really works for my body, and so far, everything has been holding up beautifully to frequent wears and washes. (Seriously, I wear a Savage X Fenty bra almost every day of the week!) I also really appreciate the fun of the Xtra VIP box. I could spend as much as I do on all of these items on just one bra at the mall. And frankly, I love how the accessories encourage me to embrace my sexy side. I've already recommended this membership to friends looking to expand their lingerie drawer (and who don't mind getting a little adventurous). It's just so fun! I'd love to hear what folks with different sizing than mine think about Savage X Fenty, too. Inclusive sizing is one of the brand's big promises—do you think they deliver?
To Wrap Up:
Can I get these pieces if I sign up today? No! As of publication, this box and these items are sold out. Sign up now to get access to other VIP products!
Value Breakdown: This month's VIP box had a member price of $49.95 and a retail value of $107.00. That's a savings of about 53%. And remember, VIP members don't have to choose the Xtra VIP box as their purchase for the month. I could nab a single bra, a sale item, or even a small accessory and satisfy my monthly purchase requirement. If I buy nothing by the end of the shopping period, Savage X Fenty will charge $49.95, which saves to my account in store credit. Or, I can log in and skip the month to avoid any charge at all.

Have you tried Savage X Fenty lingerie? I'm especially curious to know what folks with different sizes from my own (36B) think about it!
