So it was just my birthday and somehow my girlfriend knew that lingerie would be a pretty safe bet for the perfect birthday gift. Even though she knew nothing about lingerie when we first got together, I think I’ve been a good influence on her because she has now decided that Fleur of England is her favorite brand (on me). I have been lusting after this Fleur of England kimono since I first discovered the brand over 2 years ago.
And how could I resist this silk and lace beauty beaming up at me? I adore the soft, claret colored silk and the delicate pink lace is a perfect sleeve. The ties are at an empire waist height, which works well for my body shape, but could be difficult if you were particularly full-busted because it dips on quite deep in the front.
The kimono comes in one size only and it works perfectly for me. I usually wear a size ‘L’ in Fleur of England (the largest size) and it’s definitely got a little room for a slightly larger size. There are double ties on both sides of the gown, which is a nice detail to keep it closed when wandering around. There is also a sexy triangle cut out in the back, which allows a peek at what’s underneath.
Happy Friday, everyone! Also, this robe is still available on sale from Journelle, if you want to be twinsies.
