I’m not too much of a fan of buying lingerie online, I’d be the first to admit. Some purchases were so wrong! Its hard buying bras when you can’t try them and then you realise when they get here, you aren’t quite as well endowed as you thought you were 😛
However, lingerie of the sleepwear and nightgown variety was different. I’m prepared to give a little leeway and I’d purchased some pretty nightgowns before through ChicWear an online lingerie boutique, so when the sister site Lace Petals was launched, I hopped over to take a look…. and ultimately, place an order! Turns out that Lace Petals is owned by a friend and she’s given a discount code for MWS readers – yay!
Lace Petals – Sexy Lingerie for the Modern Woman
On the front page, it tells you that Lace Petals has “Sexy Lingerie for the Modern Woman” and they aren’t kidding. The lingerie available on Lace Petals is sexy indeed! Some shouldn’t even be allowed out of the bedroom 😉
Yet in between all the sheer chiffon, peekaboo lace and ribbons are some more sedate wearable gems that can even double up for party wear if you’re the partying sort 🙂 I’d spotted one or two myself but have nowhere to wear it to! 😛
The one I ultimately ordered was a Georgette Slip by Sensual Mystique in Red Violet with Black lace trim at RM249 (here). Sorry ladies, you will NOT see me in this 😛 But you have to take my word for it that it feels very luxurious! I think I’ll need to use my silk sheets when wearing this one just to fit in that image of sensual luxury 😀
Size wise, I went for S/M which fits me well. The material is a little stretchable so its actually very fitting as it looks on the model, but ultimately, comfortable. I usually wear S/M in most clothes depending on cut, and in most European and American brands, I take sizes XS/S so that should give you an idea. Otherwise, Lace Petals has a useful sizing chart you can use as an estimate and each item too has its own sizing chart.
