I’m a very firm believer in drinking elaborate cocktails, buying impractical heels, and wearing the most attractive underwear I can get my hands on, 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 and lacy lingerie under whatever else I’ve chosen the rest of the world to see me in, but they don’t need to, I’m wearing it for me.
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, I was impressed by the quality, and it was impeccably packaged in a beautiful pick box. What I love about subscription boxes is that they’re almost like a monthly gift to yourself, and this sure feels like a gift. Unlike beauty or food boxes, this one is super unlikely to send you something that you won’t use because its underwear, something you’re pretty much always going to need (just don’t go nudist on me). On the inside of their boxes they write empowering quotes, on mine was written ‘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, but when you work it out at roughly £8.30 per pair plus free postage, its actually pretty reasonable. I’m going to be honest in that I won’t personally be subscribing all year round, but will definitely keep them in mind for when I need (lets be honest, want) some new underwear and to treat myself. I’m then likely to receive a couple of months, cancel and repeat. Empress Mimi’s website also offers a ‘gift’ option, I think that this is such a great idea as it would be perfect for all the guys out there who want to treat their girl to some underwear for Christmas, Valentines day, etc. but don’t know sizing or how the hell to navigate an underwear store.
If you fancy sending a little gift to yourself (or your girl) in the form of some pretty underwear, I have some good news! Click and use code SOPHIEHEARTSNET15 for a discount on your first box. Remember you can cancel at any time, so you’re not making a financial commitment by trying them out!
I’d love to hear what you think of your box if you choose to give it a go!
