Valentine’s Day is on it’s way, and if this particular time of year has you on the lookout for some nice plus size lingerie or nightwear then I have got a great recommendation for you today. Not only that, there’s an opportunity for you to WIN some fabulous Perfect4u with our giveaway at the end of this post!
Perfect4u are a new-to-me brand that sell super affordable lingerie, slips, bodysuits and robes up to a size UK32 in most cases. There’s a whole host of gorgeous satin and lace pieces as well as really fun patterns such as polka dot on mesh. They also stock some great basics, with a range of practical and comfy tank tops or vests.
I chose a couple of items from their current range to review for this post: the Black Lace Robe with Satin Belt in a size UK18/20 and the Double Layer Fab Plus Size Black Lace Nightwear also in a size UK18/20. Even though I chose them to wear separately, it turns out that they also go really well together.
First of all let’s talk about the robe: it has loose kimono-style sleeves that fall below the elbow and the hem comes to upper thigh on me (I’m 5’10” for reference). I love the pattern of the lace because it’s not a run-of-the-mill floral design, it has a more crochet feel to it instead. The sizing is spot on. Dual sizing can sometimes be a little off, but here I felt that it fit very comfortably and the satin tie belt (although not worn here) fit with adequate length left over.
I really like this robe, it’s incredibly light and soft, and although it’s delicate it did not pull too easily. When the summer comes around I’ll be 100% wearing this over a strappy dress or top.
Next up is the double layer chemise, a lace with mesh creation that for me strikes a really good balance between sexy and comfortable. One of my favourite things about it (apart from the double layered skirt) is the elasticated and adjustable straps which give you so much control over how it fits.
The only downside with the chemise is the amount of support it offers… which is absolutely none. This usually doesn’t bother me but, as you can see in the pictures, in this case I needed to wear a bra underneath for support. Otherwise, the sizing is pretty generous and I’m fond of the cute bow at the front.
Overall, the quality of these pieces is really good and the price point is outstanding. I’m so happy to have found another great place to find affordable plus size lingerie because you can never have too much choice, right?!
