I am a big fan of playsuits, bodies and teddies. I think they’re very flattering and make your legs look like they go on for miles! So I was very happy when Lovehoney sent me this playsuit to review.
This was my first Rene Rofe item of clothing at the time, so I didn’t know what to expect. There were two sizes to choose from – S/M or M/L which according to Lovehoney translate to UK 6-10 or 12-16 respectively. Having a 27 inch waist and 39 inch hips means my top half fits in the smaller size category, but my bottom half fits in the larger size category. Therefore I decided to choose size M/L to ensure a comfortable fit.
The playsuit doesn’t have any fastenings apart from one at the back – like a bra, so I was glad I went for the larger size as I probably wouldn’t have been able to get it past my hips otherwise. This is a piece of lingerie you have to put on legs first and pull up to your torso.
The fabric is completely see-through and very soft to the touch, I can’t imagine it would irritate any skin. It’s also very stretchy however I don’t think it could fit size 16 because the seams don’t stretch. Also, the additional lacy lines around the hips don’t stretch either.
There are two ruffles on the bust which really enhance that area. They also look quite cute, especially with the two bows attached to each side at the bottom of the adjustable straps. There is no real support there but it also doesn’t feel like any breasts D-cup or above would fit in the allocated space so that shouldn’t be an issue.
The back is lovely, a classic Brazilian style which accentuates the bum beautifully. There is also a hole on the back, which exposes a bit more skin. I really like this from behind, although I haven’t managed to take a decent picture to include here.
This playsuit is very comfortable, I genuinely just wear it around the house to lounge in. The fabric feels nice against the skin although this isn’t something that can be taken off quickly in the heat of the moment. It isn’t crotchless so it can’t be left on for sex – so probably not the best choice for those activities. I’ve also slept in it and didn’t have any issues, I actually felt very glamorous!
I maybe could have done with the smaller size, because the playsuit is quite loose around the bum area but I don’t think I’d have been able to get it past my hips to put on if I did have the smaller size.
Overall this is a simple and comfortable piece of lingerie, makes great nightwear but not necessarily ideal as bedroom attire for sexual activities.
Thank you Lovehoney for sending me this playsuit in exchange for my review. You can buy your own here.
