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!
