Disclosure: I received this set free of charge by Amoretu to review. All opinions are 100% honest.
As summer ends and university classes start up again, less time to work means less money for me to spend on lingerie. Amoretu to the rescue! I was lucky enough to be asked to review one of their pieces, and after scrolling through their collection on Amazon, I chose this sheer red babydoll which comes with a matching thong. I don’t own many babydolls, and I can never get enough red lingerie, so this was the perfect addition to my collection.
Two things struck me most about the babydoll’s appearance. The first was the floral lace on the bodice, a pattern of swirls and flowers which was even more beautiful in reality than the website photos suggested. The second was the bottom, made up of about a dozen different pieces of fabric which fall from the bodice to create a beautifully flowy skirt. Each piece moves on its own which makes it perfect for twirling, and I love how you can lift a piece or two for a sexy peek of the thong underneath.
The quality is what I would expect for the price. Both the babydoll and thong seem sturdy and have survived a couple of wears, but I did find a few loose threads on the babydoll before I’d even put it on. The material is a bit stiff as well.
I suspected from the start that this piece might not fit perfectly. As a 32E cup and UK size 8, it’s rare that a core sized, non-adjustable piece fits me. Generally, a size Medium is too small in the cups, while a Large is too big everywhere else. Since this piece has a flowy bottom, I probably could have gotten away with ordering a Large without it being too loose around my thighs; however, I thought the Large thong wouldn’t fit me, so I went with a Medium.
A word of caution: don’t trust the size chart on Amazon. According to the chart, the Medium babydoll is supposed to fit a bust up to 37 inches, but that is my bust size and it’s a bit tight on me (there’s also a separate size chart by Amoretu that states it fits up to a 39″ bust). That isn’t a huge issue, mostly because this garment was designed for short-term bedroom wear. I’ve worn it for a few hours at a time with little discomfort.
I still could have sized up. Although the size chart claims the Medium thong fits a UK 12-14, it was slightly tight on me as a UK size 8. I wouldn’t recommend it for even a UK size 10, and definitely not for a 12. The measurements for the size Small better fit with the actual sizing of the Medium. I recommend sizing up.
Value for Money: 8/10
That all being said, I think it’s a good deal for the price. For a mere $14 (~£11 / ~13€), you get a set of lingerie that’s both beautiful and sexy.
Would I Recommend?
Yes, with reservations. If you want some new lingerie without emptying your bank account, Amoretu is the brand for you. It’s sexy and budget-friendly. Just make sure you follow my sizing advice.
However, for a product for daily wear or one that will last a long time, look elsewhere. This set is more about sex appeal than utility or comfort.
