I’m so excited to share with you guys one of my new favourite pieces of lingerie! Everyone, meet the Black Lace Chemise by Oh la la Cheri. When the cool folks over at Lovehoney offered to send me this beauty to review I was super psyched. A lot of my sexy lingerie is super structured (think corsets and bustiers) so I was looking forward to trying a softer look. This gorgeous lace chemise definitely didn’t disappoint.
This chemise features adjustable straps that are trimmed with cute bow details, a delicate lace ruffle along the hem and comes with a black mesh thong.
I’m not sure where they found the lace to make this set, but I imagine it was spun by tiny faeries because it feels absolutely amazing to the touch. The material is super soft and delightfully stretchy, making for a very comfortable garment (I tried it on the other day and didn’t want to take it off!)
When it comes to affordable sexy lingerie brands, Oh La La Cheri is by far one of my favourites. I have several of their bra and panty sets which I really love. So, I’m not surprised that I love this set too.
As I mentioned before, the set comes with a matching black thong. However, unlike previous thong fails, you can actually wear this one comfortably. It’s made of the same super soft stretchy material as the chemise, has sturdy but soft and stretchy straps and a cotton gusset.
Here’s a close up of the pretty lace detailing on the hem. All of it: super soft & super gorgeous.
As far as the fit goes, this Lace Chemise fits exactly like in the product photo. I ordered the size small which was the perfect fit for me (I usually wear a dress size 4). The chemise fit in the bust area and fell just at my bum (leaving room for just the tiniest bit of bum cleavage like in the photo) I love how the piece is fitted but doesn’t cling anywhere – especially the stomach. Instead, it drapes nicely and manages to conceal my less than perfect abs.
Also, did I mention that it’s ridiculously comfortable?! This is the kind of piece that I could easily wear before, after or during sex without ever having to worry about any kind of chafing. It’s comfortable enough to sleep in, making it the perfect thing to throw in an overnight bag for a sexy weekend away.
To be honest, I can’t think of anything I don’t like about this set. Overall, the quality of this set is really awesome, especially given the reasonable price point ($39.99) – par for the course when it comes to Oh La La Cheri pieces. If you are really busty, you might find that you need a bit more support however, you could easily layer this piece with your favourite bra.
Because of how comfortable and versatile this chemise is, it’s already become a favourite in my lingerie collection. I wanted to take a photo, however it’s a bit revealing for a full body shot. Instead, here’s a glimpse.
