No doubt due to having spent the past few months almost exclusively at home, I’ve been finding myself more and more drawn to loungewear lately. When my husband told me that he’d treat me to a lingerie piece of my choice for my birthday earlier this month, I very quickly settled on the idea of something long and glamorous to lounge around in. And the first place I looked was JTM Noir Lingerie*, a brand I had only recently beforehand discovered on Etsy.
While, ultimately, I chose something else (and am very happy with it), I can’t help but feel a little wistful that something so deliciously silky and dripping in lace appliqué could be hanging in my wardrobe right now, and isn’t. Of course, I can always treat myself to something here in the future – and I just might!
Created by Karolina Kobets and based in Ukraine, JTM Noir Lingerie focusses primarily on satin robes, though they also offer nightgowns and pyjamas and have a small range of linen pieces. Some designs tend towards a fairly minimal look, but it’s the swishy, lace-trimmed garments where the brand’s decadent vision truly shines. We’re talking the most glorious sleeves that drape down almost to the knee, and which are edged all round with lace that has been carefully cut-out and appliquéd. That is a very time-consuming sewing technique, and the fact this brand is offering robes that feature swathes of it from as little as 85€ full-price is pretty incredible.
My favourite JTM Noir Lingerie piece is the full-length red and black robe directly below, practically a steal at both the 142€ price for synthetic satin and the 350€ one for luscious Italian silk. I’m also very partial to the contrast of the golden-orange pyjama set with black lace details. However, all of the brand’s pieces can be made in your choice of satin colour, with at least 16 to choose from. There’s a vibrant, fuchsia pink that’s calling my name…
Naturally, the overall quality and ‘luxury’ of these garments is going to depend on whether you opt for the polyester-viscose mix or real silk satin, but I think it’s wonderful that they offer both options. The synthetic satin prices are excellent, but even the significantly-higher silk prices are still very low compared to similar products I’ve seen elsewhere. Happily, JTM Noir Lingerie is also size-inclusive. Most garments state ‘made to measure’, and on those that don’t I’ve seen sizing options from XXS to 4XL.
What’s your favourite look from the ones below? Would you opt to have it made in synthetic or silk satin?
