Having purchased lingerie from the Seven ’til Midnight range previously, I was drawn to this set as I had nothing else in this gorgeous blue. The Seven ’til Midnight Lace and Mesh Halter babydoll set really does match the label, as I would describe it as a ‘midnight blue.’ The packaging is a simple clear plastic bag, rather plain and non-descript but functional.
I purchased this babydoll set in the L/ XL size as I am a size 12-14 and I’d rather a bit more room than not enough! To get the fit right on the halter straps, I adjusted the metal sliders about two thirds of the way towards the bottom. This ensured the hemline sat evenly and that there was no gaping over the bust .
It’s all in the detail
The floral lace of the bust panel is beautifully delicate, with rose and diamond motifs throughout. There is scalloping along the V-neck cleavage and midriff edges. In the middle of the panelling on the front is a cute bow. The mesh of the lower half of the babydoll is sheer, but does help conceal modesty at the front. At the rear, the mesh has an opening to provide a cheeky ‘curtain’ to frame the matching thong.
When worn, the material feels delicate against the skin and there is no itchiness from the lace. The cut it very flattering, whilst finishing along the seams is neat and tidy with minimal ‘loose threads.’ The thong sits across the hips comfortably, and complements the babydoll very well. It has the same rose and diamond motif within the lace as in the babydoll. There is a sewn-in gusset so it feels like a proper set of pants rather than a ‘cheap’ add-on.
One point to note, the picture to the left I feel reflects the true colour of the babydoll, better than the image on the Lovehoney website, which makes it appear as a ‘royal blue’ in my opinion. Overall I am really happy with the colour, style and finishing of this set. I would rate it 4.5/5.
If you’re looking for something dark and luxurious, but not the usual black this will make a great choice! Buy yours at Lovehoney for £29.99.
