I’m a very firm believer in drinking elaborate cocktails, impractical heels and wearing the sexy underwear, all as often as possible. Its interesting how much doing these things, amongst others, can boost my self confidence. No one else knows that I’m wearing sheer lingerie under my clothes but they don’t need to, I’m wearing it for me. These a a few reasons why I’ve fallen for Empress Mimi.
When a a totally ‘girl power’ brand contacted me with regards to sending me some lingerie, I jumped at the chance. If you haven’t heard of them before, Empress Mimi is a monthly lingerie subscription box. They offer different lingerie options, starting at £25 per month and offer anytime cancellation. I genuinely think that is this an amazing idea. The lingerie came super quickly and impeccably packaged in a beautiful pick box. What I love about subscription boxes is that they’re like a monthly gift to yourself. Unlike beauty or food boxes, this one is super unlikely to send you something that you won’t use. Underwear is something you’re pretty much always going to need. On the inside of their boxes are empowering quotes, mine said ‘today I will just wear lingerie and a crown’.
I’m going to be honest and say that a £25 minimum spend per month seems a little steep to me. On the other hand, when you work it out at roughly £8.30 per pair plus free postage, its actually reasonable. I personally won’t be subscribing all year round. I’ll definitely keep them in mind for when I want some new underwear or to treat myself though. I’m then likely to receive a couple of months, cancel and repeat. Empress Mimi’s website also offers a ‘gift’ option. This is such a great idea for all the guys out there who want to treat their girl to some underwear but don’t know sizing or how the hell to navigate an underwear store.
I’d love to hear what you think of your box if you choose to give it a go!
