Are You Sitting Comfortably?
So…..Covid 19 hit, it of course gained a nickname (Rona) and turned life as we know it, on its head!
Terms like social distancing, quarantining, stay alert are near enough a constant now but..despite living in a more restricted setting – something you can control are your levels of comfort. Something I had hoped to explore further with Femme Luxe but was a total disaster. Read below to find out why.
When it comes to loungewear and comfort, I tend to errr on the side of sports brands – its a weird go-to I have, so when the team at Femme Luxe Finery reached out and gifted a few items from their loungewear section, I knew someone, somewhere was trying to tell me something. Branch out!
I did my research before I picked my items, snooped around the web to see what people had to say about it and it was so-so, good and bad too be honest. Like any online brand, things are going to fit you well or they won’t, you’re going to question the quality of the products (this comes up a lot), question the price range and also the delivery experience.
Femme Luxe Finery tries to sit along your ASOS’s, Misguided’s or Shein’s etc but cheaper so you already know where to place it and where to place your expectations. The site is super bright and “tin-y”and has a great colour theme but it’s designed to dazzle. It definitely sells “a look”. Not all items are available so it was annoying it was still displayed. Exploring the lounge sets, the prices started on roughly on average from £12.99+ (certain tops or shorts were a bit cheaper) and it seems like you could get quite a bit for your buck!
I don’t know about you but I love comfy joggers, it just screams comfort and ease to me. You can dress ’em up or down and you’re good to go on any given day. This navy pair was cool, it felt against my skin but quite tight for a size M.

Now the ribbed loungewear sets offer you something a little different. Super comfortable to chill at home in and when you wack on some heels – it changes the vibe immediately. Best fit of the bunch and I liked the fact that your midriff is on display just a bit. It’s sexy, super flirty as it can show off a gorgeous bra or bralet underneath (if you opt for one).

Femme Luxe Finery’s also has a knitted loungewear sets section. It was the smallest section (probably because of the season… I mean London is stunning us with some serious sunshine now!).
Although I liked the overall look of this set and the colour detail on the model, it did not translate into real life. It’s not an outfit I would recommend. This entire outfit looked and felt cheap to me. The top sat tight on me with minimal arm movement…as long as I didn’t move. It wasn’t the best for me when I was more “active” as the top would roll up. Like Romina above – the vibe switches when you wear heels, but it looks like you’re wearing wooly leggings… is that the vibe you want? Also, make sure you’re wearing a matching underwear set as it’s quite see-through. That screamed cheap material, minimal attempts to create a quality product.

With Primark closed due to CoVid, I would recommend Femme Luxe Finery as a last resort to be bought at sale prices only if you don’t mind buying disposable clothing as the quality is “so-so”. Definitely wash before you wear it as my contents arrived with an odd smell to it. You know exactly what to expect, it’s cheap loungewear to be worn at home at most.
