Every now and again it’s nice to treat yourself or someone close to you. I was recently contacted by a company called Empress Mimi, who have a lingerie subscription box service. At first I was unsure whether to try it out but I decided to give it a go and see what there products and service was like. There are three different types of subscription boxes; The Mermaid box (£25), The Siren Box (£40), and The Empress Box (£70). I was lucky enough to be send The Express Box, which contains a set of lingerie and a few fun pieces too. So here’s what I though of the box and the service.
Whats Inside My Box
So what does this box include. Well you get a lovely piece of lingerie, mine was a black lace with a mesh panelled body and a few other items too. I got an Infinite Love necklace that is dipped in Gold and is so incredible dainty & pretty and finally a lovely black & red sache. When you order the box they ask for your measurements and this body fits perfectly on me!
Delivery & Packaging
I was really surprised at how quickly this package arrived. Within 2 days, a beautifully packaged box arrived at my door step. I love that this package arrives in a pink bag and then you unwrap it you find your gorgeous box. Some boxes come with a ribbon on the front and others come with a magnetic front that you lift up to reveal your treats inside. I love how the box has gold lettering embossed into it. This box will now be sitting on my dressing table as it is too pretty to throw away.
Once you open the box there is a little message on the lid, which I think is such a lovely touch. You then have the content of the box wrapped in pink tissue paper with a sticker and ribbon holding it together. I love it when subscription boxes come wrapped with tissue paper, it makes it feel like a present and makes it even more special.
Attention to Detail
I really like the attention to detail with this box, it’s like they have thought of everything. The message on the lid of the box is just the start to all the little things that really make this box special. Having a piece of ribbon around the tissue paper and a sticker gives these boxes an element of unwrapping your pieces making it feel very special. I also love the fact that they include a little pouch to put your lingerie in when you are storing it in the draw. This means you wont damage your delicate lingerie and always keeps it looking perfect.
I think the quality of this subscription box is great. Firstly the box has been made beautifully and the embossed letters help portray this too. Moving onto the lingerie, I received a box, which is a really good quality. A lot of the body is covered in lace, which is so soft, unlike the cheaper lacy that can be very scratchy on the skin. The buttons are also covered in black fabric, so that they blend into the design. The body fits perfectly and is really comfortable to wear. The necklace is dipped in gold and so pretty.
My overall view
Overall I think this is a great subscriptions or even a one off box for yourself, or your partner. I loved how beautifully package this box came, they had wrapped it up so it felt like you were opening a present and everything has been thought of. I also noticed how prompt and efficient their customer service is, they will certainly take good care of you! Lingerie is usually associated with sexy underwear but maybe its a way of making yourself feel more confident and special. I highly recommend trying something like this out, its important you feel special once in a while.
