I have quite literally drooled over Playful Promises lingerie for some time now – their whimsical designs are anything but plain and they really push the boundaries bringing out collection after collection of lust-worthy items that just scream ‘tie me up and give me a spanking’ – or ‘let me tie you up and spank you’ if your prefer!
Unfortunately, I’ve always been on the outside of their sizing range so haven’t been able to try their products. Then, earlier this year, the announced a Curve range … I positively swooned and the pre-ordered the beautiful Emily Embroidered 1920’s Chemise the very moment it went online!
I was worried – the model, when I ordered, was all of a size 10/12**** and I had no idea how this would fit on a curvy 18. I needn’t have worried though – it’s a dream! And they have since released product shops with a refreshingly plus size model! **** CORRECTION – the initial model is a size 18 which makes me a horrible judgemental person. I would like to apologise for this, especially as I’m forever saying that you should never judge a book by it’s cover, which is exactly what I did here****
Made from a sheer mesh material with a drop waistline adorned with tassels (I’m putting this in bold out of sheer excitement at them) the chemise has so much flow and movement, I mean, just watch the video on my Instagram!
The back is almost none-existence – a low sleep with a simple crossover strap. Now the straps are adjustable so you can decide how high/low you want the back to be. You can also adjust the placement of the straps if you didn’t want them crosses.
The chemise is priced at £35 which is really very reasonable considering the craftsmanship that’s gone into this … with the embroidered flowers across the bust and the twisted tassels.
I also love the idea of wearing this is outerwear …. it would certainly make an amazing beach cover up but would also look pretty damn fine with skinny jeans and a pair of heels – cocktail in hand, of course!
Now I’m just going to take a minute to flaunt myself (some more) here because I think the chemise largely speaks for itself in these photos …
Can you tell I’m in love?
Now, the range does have some limitations. The range comes in sizes 18 – 24, and 38-42 bands – reaching to the lofty heights of a G cup. Now this is a start, but it is only just a start and it would be amazing to see the sizes stretched further. I mean, I’m a H and would love, love, love to prance about in the Emerald Strappy Curve bra and, with sister-sizing, the 38G may just suffice.
The way to ensure that the range does continue to extend? Buy it!!! Please! Extending sizing it a risk for a small independent company like Playful Promises and this small step is probably quite daunting for them – so lets make it work and, if it fits and you like it, buy it! After all, how many lingerie brands really cater to the sexy vixen inside of us?
