This year one of my goals is to bring more clothing and fashion posts to all of you. I have always had a love for it and it’s a huge part of my life, so I think it fits in to the “All Things Beauty” umbrella.
For those that haven’t heard of Adore Me, it is on on-line store that carries lingerie & more. I actually stumbled across this store and honestly had never heard of it. I did an internet search and reading through the reviews, I saw positive reviews but also a lot of negative reviews. I will give my opinion on that in a bit.
It’s not just me, is it?
I turned 44 last week, and I feel like somewhere along the line, I gave up trying to find bras and underwear that are: comfortable, practical, not too skimpy, holds up well that’s also affordable. I mean, is this too much to ask?
Over the years I found myself wearing my bras and underwear way past their “lifespan” because honestly, it’s just something I didn’t want to deal with or even waste money on it. Come on ladies, I know I’m NOT the only one! 😉
Anyway, I finally got to the point where I pretty much need an entire NEW collection. I also went up a bra size (exciting for a small chested woman ;)) which also means my old, ragged bras were no longer holding the girls properly. So maybe it was the whole birthday thing, or who knows, maybe the excitement of actually having something to work with, I decided I deserved some new pieces.
VIP vs. One Time Purchase
You can shop at Adore Me like you would any other store to make a one time purchase, or you can become a VIP member. Now here’s where the bad reviews came in. Many were complaining because they obviously didn’t understand their VIP membership. Rest assured, this is spelled out very clearly on their website. Perhaps it wasn’t early on when the company was new, but the way their website is set up now, it is all laid out.
I decided to sign up to be an Adore Me VIP. Why? Remember when I said I needed a complete overhaul?!? Here is what you get as a VIP:
Not really so much of a catch, but here’s what you have to know.
I mean that’s it! So you either need to shop every month, OR skip. If you don’t you’ll be charged, BUT it’s a credit you can use on future purchases. They will send you texts and emails to remind you so you don’t forget to skip, and you can skip as many times as you want. Oh, and you can cancel your membership any time. So ladies, just set an alert, or better yet, read your texts or emails. Just sayin.
My First Purchase
For my first purchase, I decided to pick out 3 different sets. Oh, that’s the other thing…the bras and panties are in sets. What’s nice about it, is you can choose your bra size and then the style and size of the panties. Most of them offered bikini or hipster as the styles. You also have the option to add additional panties if you choose. They also have 4 for $24 panties, but I’m not sure if that’s a sale or always offered.
Because I chose the Adore Me VIP option, I was able to scoop up all 3 sets for only $79.95! That’s $26.65 per set…not bad!! With FREE shipping, and 2 more sets and I get a FREE one 🙂
Here’s what I chose:
Set 1: Ranay
I chose this set because I loved the lace detail on the back. Sometimes lace can be itchy especially on my sensitive skin, but to my surprise, this lace is soft which stretches and molds to your body.
This bra has a lot of padding because it does add “2 cups” but it gave me some cleavage which is always welcomed 😉 It has a front closure so it’s easy to put on too.
I really like it and I am actually considering getting another color. It’s also available in Blue, Black, Green & Nude.
I give it: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Set 2: Uniqla Push Up
I like the uniqueness of this set. Again, the lace and material is soft and very comfortable to wear.
I like that fact that it’s a push up and likes the shape it gives.
The panties are comfortable too, and it finally feels good to wear a set that matches. 😉
One thing to be aware of is it comes up pretty high on me, so if I would wear a t-shirt, it would show. Right now it’s winter in Wisconsin, so it’s been working great under my sweaters.
This color is considered nude even though it is more of a light pink. Additional colors are black and 2 different blues.
I give it: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Set 3: Kimmy Push Up
This bra is cut totally different than the others. The fabric is comfortable and soft, especially the straps. They are textured, almost ruffled but not as firm as most bras.
Due to the way it is designed, you only have support on the sides and the cups felt a bit small. If there was an inch more of fabric on the top of the cup it would be better for my shape. They almost didn’t quite cover everything. I haven’t tried removing the push up pads yet, and that may help.
The panties are very different but I like the design.
Beware that this probably isn’t the best choice to wear with a smooth shirt. Due to the texture, it will show through.
Kimmy is available in Brown, Red, White & Blue.
I’m giving this one: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
I noticed that Adore Me has created a showroom for me based on my order and perhaps browsing history. They also have swimwear, sleepwear, activewear, lingerie, and plus sizes.
They seem to add new styles fairly often to keep you coming back.
I also noticed when checking out, it gave me the option to add additional items that seemed to be at a nice discount to my cart.
Returns or Exchanges
I like everything I purchased, so I haven’t had to deal with a return, but it does have a button below my order to start the return process.
This was another subject that came up in the reviews I read, but it is stated on their website, that you must ship back the entire set in its new, unworn condition within 30 days of delivery! We cannot accept partial sets (e.g. a bra and panty set missing the panty). Seems fair enough to me!
It also states that each returned set is subject to a $5.95 restocking fee. Please allow 30 days for us to process your request upon receipt. Although it seems for VIP members, exchanges are free. Just something to be aware of.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase from Adore Me. I feel like the price is great for the quality. I am happy with the selection and the fit has been great. I also find the reviews on their website helpful when shopping. Their website is easy to navigate and all of the information is there. They even provide videos on the VIP membership & returns & exchanges.
I just ordered another set and added some leggings to my order. I am curious to see how everything holds up over time. To early to tell, but so far so good! I plan on keeping my membership long enough to have enough presentable under garments 😉
The shipping was a bit slow BUT to their defense, I ordered it the week before Christmas. My last order just arrived and was much faster.
