Blue isn’t a colour I opt for in lingerie often. However, there was something about the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset which drew me to it. Corsets are fabulous lingerie choices for curvier bodies. They really accentuate the hourglass nature of your figure and can be used to create a pin up silhouette.

The colour of the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset is a stunning teal on black. Teal is such a striking colour on its own let alone over black. The main body of the corset is made of super shiny black satin, but this is trimmed at every turn with gorgeous teal roses.

Boning to Sculpt

The Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset has 8 plastic bones to help sculpt your shape. These are quite delicate so remember to store your corset carefully. Hand it or store it flat to avoid bending or damaging the bones.

Down the centre of the front of the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset is a full-length zip. This makes getting out of the corset much easier when the temperature rises. One quick pull and the corset front is completely open. In the throes of passion lacing can be a pain.

Lacing

At the back of the corset there is traditional corset lacing. Laced to the middle enabling you to tighten and tie it yourself. The lacing is done with a black ribbon, so this is very much a cosmetic lacing. I found lacing it myself very easy and I’m far from flexible.

At the neck line sits a teal collar which fastens behind your neck with a hook. There is strapping from this leading to the front of the corset, where the cups would be were there any. This adds a modern look to quite a vintage piece.

Being a corset obviously there are no moulded cups. Instead the very nature of the tightlacing holds my boobs in place nicely. Despite having very large boobs they stayed put and looked great.

Teal Lace Sleeves

At the shoulders there are small teal lace sleeves. These are removable, and I did find they came loose several times when wearing the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset. That can be a little irritating and I can’t really see any function other than decoration so why not just fix them to the corset?

The body of the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset is quite long and on me it sits on my hips. Perfect for meeting the black thong included with it.

At the bottom of the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset sit four adjustable removable suspenders. These remained in place quite well given the problems I’d had with the other Lovehoney lines I’ve been reviewing this season. I like that the suspenders are removable. It enables you to wear the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset with or without hosiery or even to wear it out as a top. I teamed mine with lace top stockings to add to the flirty vibe.

Fit Issues

In terms of fit I found the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset to be less of a good fit than the Boudoir Belle range. There is no give at all to the material. You can adjust the fit via the lacing but make sure you don’t downsize when ordering.

For me the colour is what makes the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset stand out. The jewel like teal shade is opulent and rich. The roses add a softer element to what could in essence appear quite harsh without those decorative details. Running along the side of the zip and around the bottom of the hem they really draw the eye and make a statement. If you haven’t worn a corset before this would be a great place to start.

 

In Summary

Lovehoney sell the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset for £49.99 and there are other items available in this range including separates.

I think the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset is stunning. Corsets can be associated with Domming, but this one is nowhere near the harsh image conjured to mind when thinking of black corsets.

Thank you so much to Lovehoney for sending me the Lovehoney Midnight Soiree Blue and Black Floral Corset for review. I was sent this item free of charge and in exchange for an honest and impartial review.

  1. I have had several Lovehoney lingerie items and they are all really great. Well made, great fitting and likely to last, and best they are sensibly priced compared to so called premium items.

    By the way you look stunning in this.
