Happy August! Lingerie reviews are hard for me to churn out in the summer because it’s so damned hot. Think 110 degree days with heat index. Also: too many bugs. Most of the time, I just lounge around in a pair of cotton brief undies. Hoping some rain (and autumn!) will come soon.
I usually write long ass reviews, but given how I’m melting, have no energy, and a raging headache, I’m going to make this pretty quick:
1. Amoralle is the stuff that dreams are made of.
2. The garments are handmade & handsewn in Latvia. Fabrics are usually almost always produced there, too. Paired with lower manufacturing expenses + cost of labor, prices for their gorgeous pieces are priced well. That doesn’t mean the prices are inexpensive, especially for a luxury brand.
3. The designs are decadent and indulgent. Billowing sleeves, endless yards of fabric, rows of velvet covered buttons, crystal finishes… Look no further.
I purchased the Breezy Hyacinth bodysuit during their last flash sale. I’ve wanted this piece for many months, and when I saw it was available during the sale, it was a no brainer. (I also picked up a pair of leggings.) My order shipped very quickly, too – in only a couple of days, yay! But it took about two weeks for it to arrive in the US.
Ladies + gents, there aren’t enough words to describe how beautiful this garment is; this bodysuit did not disappoint. I’ve bought a lot of lingerie over the course of my lifetime, but this piece has made me excited about lingerie again.
Everything is perfect: from the buttons, to the fabric, to the velvet trims… PERFECT. My one “complaint” is that fabric content is not listed on a tag in the garment. The top half of the body feels like a heavyweight silk charmeuse (with lycra or elastane). If it’s indeed synthetic, it’s damned good convincing. The bottom half of the body is comprised of a super soft and silky jersey + lace panel. The suspender straps have a large, ~1″ pyramid jet black crystal sewn to the center of each bow.
Sizing is limited, but based on comments I’ve read, most of Amoralle’s customers fit into their S/M/L. Hopefully they’ll consider expanding their size range in the future. Since I have broad shoulders, I usually size up in garments with set sleeves. In this case, I purchased a L, and it fits my long torso and shoulders perfectly. The bodysuit also has eye and hook closures at the crotch – hooooray! And just as a point of reference, I typically take an 8/10 in US dress size.
I wish I could’ve purchased the stockings that matched this body, but alas, it’s been out of stock for awhile. :(
tl;dr (seriously, this is one of the shortest posts I’ve ever written): Amoralle is life, and I am in love with lingerie all over again.
