Amoralle Breezy Hyacinth Bodysuit Review

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.
