As Ru Paul declares wholeheartedly “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you going to love somebody else?” and we scream AMEN fillies! And one of the greatest ways to self love? Treating yo’self girlfriend! We know, we know, there are a million subscription boxes out there, but the Empress Mimi Lingerie Subscription Box will make you feel like an utter QUEEN. Packed with lushness, this little box does more than your average monthly subscription: Not only does it contain pretty lil things to make you feel good, but it also does good for other women out there too. Want to find out how? Click this way… (Psst…there may also be a special discount for our readers too – how good is that?)
If you scroll through Empress Mimi’s Instagram, you will clearly understand their ethos – pretty, sexy, beautiful underwear that is created by women FOR women. With a totally girl power hashtag that declares #EmpressesDoItBetter – this is one call to action that will have you clicking through to their website. Their subscription box wants to not only deliver sublimely special lingerie, but believes that they remind women to love themselves and their bodies, turning every delivery into a little moment of celebration and self-love. Now who could say no to that fillies?
The subscription box comes in three different packages, so there is something to suit everyone. You can choose between the Mermaid box – which delivers 3 pairs of undies per month, the Siren box – which contains a full set of lingerie per month and the ultimate box, the Empress which not only contains a full lingerie set, but also accessories. What I like in particular about this subscription service is, unlike some, that your plan can be paused or stopped at anytime and deliveries, as well as returns, are free within the UK. Now that’s fabulous service!
I received the Empress box and O, M and G, was it overflowing with gorgeousness! Firstly, the packaging is just top notch and feels supremely special – butterflies, personalised card, cute mantras, ribbons and crisp pink tissue paper contain veritable delights. As well as the most gorgeous vintage feeling nude and black lace bra and high waisted pants (which are my new fave shape btw, as they sit smoothly under high waisted jeans, etc) that make a gal feel pin-up worthy, the accessories unleash your inner vixen! These included a rather naughty, 50 shades of cheeky black lace mask and a really cute “Infinite Love” necklace too. The quality and fit of the underwear I must say is exceptional. Like the mantra on the inside of the box declares, it truly made me feel that I just wanted to wear underwear and a crown! I kid you not, I ruddy pranced around the flat in my new lingerie with my invisible crown of confidence, which was a real moment of self love and empowerment.
But for me the best part was not only was I giving myself something each month, but I was giving BACK! Yes, those beautiful beaut’s over at Empress Mimi are huge advocates of women supporting women and as a subscriber you get to be a part of the movement. With every purchase, Empress Mimi donates 10% of the proceeds to charities helping get more women into coding with Project Girl Code. Why coding you may ask? Because they believe that technology and the wonderful world wide web has lowered the barriers so that everyone can be able to run their own business (whether as a side hustle or full time). By training and getting more women into tech, surely that ensures more women to the top – becoming new world leading businesses and ensuring that every woman has the skills and knowledge to thrive in the emerging tech economy. This means more women going online and building like-minded communities that support one another, and more fearless women with the right tools at their disposal to create anything they can imagine! Now doesn’t that sound freaking epic?
So if the above hasn’t yet got you clicking through to Empress Mimi’s website to nab yourself a little slice of self love that also loves others, we have been given a special discount code for all our lovely readers! You can receive 15% off your first box by entering FASHIONDUJOUR15 at the checkout. Can I get amen? AMEN sisters!
