Hunkemöller Nightwear Review

Hunkemöller Nightwear Review

Hi guys, I feel like it has been such a long time since I wrote a post for you! I had a lot of posts scheduled (apart from last Wednesday, I did skip that one as I was just too busy to write my Birchbox post) so it has been a few weeks since I have actually sat down and wrote a blog post. But I’m back, and bringing you a Hunkemöller* nightwear review.

I was sent this slip dress by the lovely people at Hunkemöller – thank you so much! It’s quickly becoming a favourite item of mine. I feel super cute (and sexy) in it! You can check out this slip dress, and any other nightwear items, on the Hunkemöller website, here.

Now, getting into the review, I should really show you the slip dress!

It is such a beautiful, deep purple colour. I have very pale skin and I feel it looks gorgeous against mine, but this colour would be equally as gorgeous for dark skin tones as well. It’s satin and very comfortable and soft against the skin. Even the lace pattern on the sides of the dress, as well as the lacing on the edge of the bust, is comfortable to wear.

I was worried that it could be uncomfortable and scratchy like some lacy underwear can be, but it isn’t the case here at all!

The back of the dress is low, with cute detailing and multiple straps that adds a very subtle but lovely detail to the dress. The front of the dress doesn’t go too low into the bust either; there’s no risk of your boobs falling out (we all have this problem, sometimes!). However, it is low enough to make you feel sexy and confident when you wear it.

Size wise, Hunkemöller are quite forgiving. I was looking at the size chart and was concerned that a small would be too small for me, as it is generally a UK 8-10. While I am a 10, I am on the verge of a 12. I measured myself and my waist was definitely larger than what their guide recommended for a small.

In the end, I ordered a size small anyway, and it’s a perfect fit. If you decide to order one for yourself, definitely stick to your guns rather than go a size up!

I did find that it was a bit short, but as nightwear, does it really matter? If anything, I actually liked how it came up short, and I’m sure my boyfriend did, too. I’m also 5’8″ and most regular dresses do not fit me properly, length-wise, anyway.

I am SO in love with this nightwear! It’s a gorgeous fit, and looks great on. Sometimes that’s difficult to say about yourself, but I felt really cute! I was so excited to add this to my collection as I have no “pretty” nightwear sets. I’m more of a comfy pyjamas kind of gal, but for special occasions or just when you’re feeling fancy, this is an amazing addition!

Lastly, I want to say a big thank you to Hunkemöller again for collaborating with me! I’m seriously in love with their products, especially their nightwear collection. It definitely was difficult trying to pick my favourite one out of their collection – have a look, and let me know what your favourite is!

What do you guys think of this slip dress? Do you have any other Hunkemöller night dresses on your wishlist? Let me know in the comments!

      I don’t often wear things like this either, but I am loving it. It’s such a beautiful thing to have in your drawer whenever you feel like wearing it! The colour is beautiful, I’m so glad I picked this one 😍

    This is such a cute slip dress! And I agree, I think that deep purple colour would look absolutely lovely on darker skin tones.

    I saw your tweet about this and had a little giggle to myself. I see why you were worried but it looks super cute! I have really similar issues with some colours looking awful against my skin tone so I’m glad you mentioned that x

      I’m glad you understand my worries, and honestly it was a little funny 😂 a few people I had sent the pictures to said they were okay, but I decided against posting them anyway because I don’t think my boyfriend was comfortable with it, and that matters to me 🙈 I know what you mean! This colour was so pretty though, I felt so good in it which isn’t usual for me and underwear/nightwear ☺️

    It’s such a pretty dress! Length doesn’t reall matter for night wear. All that matters for me is it’s comfy, nothing worse than uncomfy night wear!

      Hahaha, I never even thought of that 😂 it would’ve been amazing for the heatwave, it’s such a shame that it has disappeared for us slightly over the last few days!

    Ah this slip dress is gorgeous! I don’t own any ‘pretty’ nightwear sets either haha, I say while I’m sat in my Friends Central Perk matching PJs 😂 this colour is stunning, I’m super pale too so I think this would be perfect for me! I’m 5’10 though so it would probably come up super short haha but I’m used to it. Thanks for sharing! So gorgeous! x

      Thank you, I’m so in love with it right now! Hahaha, well now I’m jealous, I want Friends PJs 😂 it definitely would suit you then, I’m essentially a milk bottle and I love how it looks against my skin! I feel your pain, there are so many cute non-tall dresses out there and it breaks my heart that I can’t wear them without my butt basically being on show 🙄

    This colour is beautiful and I love how good quality it looks! I might actually have to buy this, great post!

      Thank you! They’re really good for underwear and nightwear, kind of like what La Sensa used to be but more modern ☺️

    Such a beautiful dress and the deep purple colour is absolutely gorgeous! I mostly own pjs, shorts & tshirts but it would be nice to treat myself to something pretty like this! Thanks for sharing Beka 💖 xx

      Thank you, I think so, too! You definitely should – I’m more of a t-shirt and joggers, or fluffy pjs kind of gal myself, but this is such a cute stand alone piece to have!

    Love the Hunkemöller nightwear – I am a total fan of anything that’s comfortable and cozy (without being overheating). The color looks gorgeous and glad the fit is nice! Glad you enjoyed the nightwear – thanks for sharing your thoughts!

      Me too! Sometimes I think that silk or satin can stick to you in the hot weather, but this was such a delight to sleep in! Thank you for reading, Nancy ☺️
