Today I will be reviewing the Adore Me lingerie subscription site and their products. So for the super private, super squeamish people…ADVERT THINE EYES.
I received a complimentary set of Adore Me clothing thanks to Influenster.com.
Adoreme.com is fairly simple to use and to sign up for. It has the basic store interface and it makes it super easy to upgrade to a VIP membership (possibly to easy). Unlike so many other subscription based services Adore Me VIP allows you to pick what you want each month. At the beginning of the month they send you an email telling you to shop or skip the month, and you have until the 5th to do so. If you don’t they will automatically charge you for the month and add $39.95 to your store credit to be used later. Skipping the month is super easy, all you have to do is go to your showroom and click ‘skip the month’. Or you can go to your account and put it on vacation mode, which allows you to skip two months at a time. Not everything costs $39.95 of course, so if you shop you can basically get your month cheaper than the standard charge.
To make it even easier they have it so that you can put in all of your sizes and it remembers them, and then you can search based on that. The variety is fairly large as well, and the prices can’t be beat for the quality. They have sleepwear, lingerie sets, corsets, swimsuits, and more. They also have plenty of sizes to choose from, including different styles for those who want less padding or more. I also love that I can choose different styles for the bottoms as well, so I’m not stuck buying something I’d never wear just because I like the bra.
They send too many emails…I get one almost every day. Sometimes it tells me of new stuff in stock or sales, other times it’s just a pointless email showing me stuff I’ve already send. ‘
Everything ships in a nice cardboard box, similar to other subscription services, and comes wrapped in tissue paper and in individual plastic baggies. They do size the boxes according to what you have ordered so nothing will get squished into the box if it doesn’t fit. And shipping is super quick! I ordered one on a Monday and it was at my house on Thursday.
I’ve placed two orders so far. One was my free set from Influenster and I ordered the Lorelai set, which I love. It’s super comfortable and fits perfectly, and for a $39 ($49 w/o VIP) set it’s great quality. My second order was my ‘experiment order’. They were awesome enough to give me a $10 off coupon to use in March, so I wanted to get something I would normally never buy because they’re far to expensive. A corset, more specifically the Marisole. Most women buy these for sex appeal…I bought it because it was Slytherin green and I can use it for a victorian Poison Ivy cosplay. I know…I’m beyond the point of return in my geekiness. This was $39 ($49 w/o VIP) and I got it for $29.95, and it’s amazing! I was worried it was going to be a cheap and loose but it’s actually quite sturdy and looking very well made. The boning is very structured, but not so much that you might die if you leave it on too long.
Overall I’m very pleased with my experience and the site. It’s perfect for people, like me, who are utterly mortified to be seen in the underwear section of the store. (Probably because I never fail to see someone I know walking by or shopping). The prices can be a bit steep, but for the quality I would say it’s worth it.
