Over the past year, I’ve found that Overstock.com is a great place to find everything from chic accessories to items for the home. I’m still swooning over the black and white chevron pillows I picked up from them for my bedroom revamp. However, it wasn’t until super recently that I discovered they actually have a decent selection of lingerie. Who knew, right?
To give you an idea of what they have to offer, O.co offered to send me a couple of different lingerie looks to share with you: the Prestige Biatta Women’s Microfibre with Printed Mesh & Lace Babydoll and G-String Set ($35.19) and the Marilyn Monroe Envy Black Lace Balconette Chemise ($49.27)
The Prestige Biatta Babydoll is made of soft mesh fabric with lace trim. It features slightly padded bra cups, adjustable straps and is long enough to fully cover your butt (like in the product photo above.) It also comes with a matching black and white polka dot mesh g-string that’s surprisingly comfortable.
I was really impressed with the overall quality of this set. It can be difficult to know what you’re really getting when you order lingerie online, however the Prestige Biatta Chemise is really well constructed and finished gorgeously. It fits great and is comfortable to boot. The Prestige Biatta Chemise comes in a variety of different cup sizes. I ordered a 34C. Although that isn’t my exact bra size, the cups fit well enough to be flattering and comfortable. Because of this, the Prestige Biatta Chemise gets two enthusiastic thumbs up. I feel confident and sexy in this set and can easily envision myself wearing it in the bedroom & beyond!
Next up is the Marilyn Monroe Black Lace Balconette Chemise. When I first saw this chemise on O.o, it was love at first sight. As you know, I love retro inspired lingerie. I’m also a huge fan of blush and black lace as a colour combo. This chemise has both! Oh & it’s from the Marilyn Monroe line of intimates which obviously appeals to my penchant for all things Old Hollywood. (If you go to their main site you can see the complete line. It’s gorgeous.)
The Marilyn Monroe Black Lace Balconette Chemise is made of soft black mesh and lace, with a contrasting blush hued waistband, garter ribbons and retro styled adjustable straps.
Everything about the Marilyn Monroe Black Lace Balconette Chemise is impeccably styled and executed. The quality is awesome and this is definitely something I would have purchased for myself (I kind of want all of the pieces from the line. O.co has a few of them on sale! Sigh.)
My only beef with this set is that very sadly, it did not fit me quite right. I ordered a Small, thinking that it would fit but it didn’t. It’s a bit too narrow and the cups are way too small. I’m still able to squeeze into it, but I really needed a size medium. It’s sad, because otherwise it’s absolutely perfect.
The Marilyn Monroe Black Lace Balconette Chemise is a gorgeous choice for anyone who is looking for something classy and sexy, however I would just suggest that you buy a size up.
Despite sizing issues with the Marilyn Monroe Black Lace Balconette Chemise, I really enjoyed my lingerie shopping experience at O.co. Both of these sets are awesome quality and appeal to different parts of my style personality: the fun, cheeky (slightly over-the-top) floral & animal print lover and the dark & demure, vintage aficionado.
If you’re looking to switch up your lingerie game for 2015, both of these sets are fun and affordable options. However, if these aren’t quite your jam, they have tons of other budget friendly lingerie in their Women’s Intimates section.
