I was recently lucky enough to review the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Plunge Black Basque for Pleasure Panel. It was so gorgeous I fell in love and went straight to the Lovehoney website! I love a Babydoll and so this was my first choice.
The Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll arrived in the standard clear plastic bag. No surprise there, although it’s no frills it does the job and lingerie doesn’t really need packaging. As always, the delivery was fast and the box was discreet.
Opening the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll I was oohing and aahing at the gorgeous wine-coloured satin. I knew the colour scheme already as it’s the same across the whole Moonlight range. Wine and black is such a classic combination it gives a striking look.
The Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll is predominantly wine coloured, the main part of the Babydoll is made of the richly coloured satin. The skirt is made of stretch satin and has a fair bit of give to it. At the waist, the satin meets a panel of black scallop patterned lace.
Being lace there is a degree of transparency to this panel, you can see hints of skin beneath it. It’s very sexy and still flattering if you’re sensitive about your midriff. The black lace continues up to sit over half the cup. This forms a deep plunge against the red of the cups. The scallops sitting strikingly against the satin
The cups themselves are moulded and very supportive. For me the cups on the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll are a little on the small side. They don’t feel as generously sized as the Basque. This aside they do lift and support well and still feel comfortable. Between the cups sits a wine coloured satin bow with a small silver Lovehoney charm. Cute!
Black Lace Trim
Thick wine-coloured straps make for comfortable lift. This is trimmed with black lace which meets and fastens behind the neck. This is both aesthetic and comfortable. The lace stretched across the back of my shoulders looks and feels very sexy and forms a frame for my back tattoos. A bonus of this is a little extra support. The additional pull on the straps further lifts my cleavage into a killer plunge.
Across the rear of the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll is a back strap. Fastening with four rows of three hook and eyes there is a nice degree of adjustment here. The back strap itself is made of black lace and my skin showing through the lacy is a nice touch.
Short and Sexy
In length, the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll is short. If you like Babydolls because they cover this isn’t the one for you. It sits very high on my thighs and I’m only 5 ft. 5. There are no knickers included with the Lovehoney Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll. This is good in respect of it doesn’t create lines under the skirt. But I like to wear stockings and so I put a set of suspender knickers underneath.
I found the skirt of the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll literally skimmed my knickers, this is very sexy in the bedroom but not great if you’re looking for coverage. I loved it though. The satin is very clingy and sits tight to my hips, it feels amazing.
I teamed my Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll with black back-seamed stockings and spiked black heels. It felt a very powerful seductive look and I thoroughly enjoyed the flash given at the back when I leant forward. My boobs looked amazing and I felt like I could seduce a monk from his holy vows.
Things I didn’t like so much about the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll, the cling of the satin means anything worn underneath it creates a wicked line. This does sort of ruin the look. Also, the lace on the shoulders is gorgeous but its fiddly to do up behind your neck. It is do-able but it requires a bit of yoga-like stretching.
I love the femininity of the Lovehoney Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll. It’s sophisticated looking despite me usually hating stretch satin. It can look cheap, but on the Moonlight Babydoll it looks stunning.
Lovehoney sells the Plus Size Moonlight Black Plunge Babydoll for £34.99. I can’t fault this price. I’ve been raving about this range to all my friends and recommend it to anyone looking for a sexy, seasonal look.
