So recently I got a lingerie set from Adore Me to try out. Adore me is supposed to be the very first customizable lingerie store. It's basically like ShoeDazzle, but for lingerie. I did the whole shebang: signing up, getting lingerie picked for me, getting a free set. I'll be reviewing everything: from signing up to trying it on.
Signing up: So signing up is pretty easy. You just need to input your email to actually sign up. Then you have to take this like 5 page quiz. Each page has 3 questions, so it's not that bad. The one thing I didn't like about the quiz was how it asked "which person do you identify your style with". It was like 3 random people who I didn't even know. Okay, I knew Dita Von Teese, but the other people I was like "...... uh.... her.. I think..?" That could definitely could be improved.
Getting a Showroom: It takes 24 hours to get a showroom. I guess it takes time to build it? Anyway, I was slightly disappointed with what they came up with. I even took the quiz again to get a different one. In the quiz, they asked what kind of underwear I liked. I said the ones with the triangle butts. I like my butt to be covered. However, I got a whole ton of sets with thong underwear. Only 3 out of 10 had the triangle butt underwear. Terrible. Also we had to input our bra size and underwear size. I actually got sets that didn't contain my bra size. Maybe they were out of stock? Idk. Maybe they just don't have a large collection and thats why I keep getting thong undewear? IDK. But this really needs to be fixed.
Packaging: I got my package and it was this plastic bag thing. Inside was one of those boxes you get for packing cakes. It's pretty thin and it got pretty crushed and I was sad. I think that the packaging could go either plastic bag or firm box, not both. I guess it saves money doing with the thinner box..? But that's my opinion. I mean, if i actually paid 40 dollars, I better get a box that's sturdy. I mean when you look at Glossybox or those other 10$ a month for a bunch of beauty stuff boxes, they're boxes are sturdy and not crushable. However, the pink tissue paper is cute.
The bra is really cute. It's soft and whatnot. However, the underwear give me a huge wedgie whenever I walk around. Maybe I got the wrong size? I got a small, which is my default size. They don't tell you how large the "small" or "larges" are. I don't care if it's free returns because returns are a bitch and I don't like to deal with them.
Shipping/Price: Shipping was pretty fast. However, the price isn't cute. It's basically 40 dollars. That's really expensive considering how I didn't like my sets in the showroom, the underwear is giving me a massive wedgie, and the cheap-ish packaging. Frankly, 40 dollars is 40 dollars to me. I get underwear at target for .75 clearance and bras at 3 dollars at Sears clearance. I feel like the quality should have made up for the expensive price, but for me, it didn't. The bra feels like my sears clearance bra and well, you know how I feel about the underwear.
Recommended: Eh.. I had high hopes for this company. It's a fairly new company so it could really stand to make some changes. I would like it a lot better if they would separate it into bra/underwear. I don't like their underwear choices, but I do like their bras. It's expensive, which could really turn people off from trying out this brand. So overall, recommended for people who like thongs and who have 40 dollars.
Edit (12/6/11 at 12:10 pm)- I have talked to a representative of the company. and she says that the company is working on making changes to make shopping experience better.
