Pyjamas are awesome. And there’s nothing I love more than the feel of soft slinky pj’s rubbing against my skin. All through the summer, when I wasn’t busy wearing an oversized tee, I was rocking a short satin cami set. But you get the point, pyjamas are awesome and I love them.

The other day, I was asked by Hunkemöller* to review a pair of their pyjamas which I jumped at the chance to do. Hunkemöller is a lingerie company who make everything from lingerie to sportswear, pyjamas to swimwear. They make beautiful pieces and cater to a range of styles and sizes from small to large. So, if you’re after something cute, they have it, or something a little sexier, they have that too. They are an overseas brand who also have a base in England. Check out their collections.

I was so excited by this prospect that I spend ages scouring through their site trying to find something. There were so many pieces to choose from but I knew, as soon as I spotted it, that a pink floral playsuit was the one for me. On the model, it was slim fitting (in a flattering way), cute and feminine; exactly my style.

My order came surprisingly quickly and was wrapped beautifully in some tissue paper. I’ve ordered pyjamas online from other shops in the past and they hadn’t put this much effort into packaging it and making it feel special.

I love the lace trim detail on the neckline and lining the shorts; it gives it a cute and feminine feel. It also has a tie detail down the front which you can tie how you like.

The playsuit itself is made from a viscose material which is a mix of soft cotton and elastic. It’s soft against the skin and lightweight. Probably not the most useful in the current cold climate but it’s ideal if you don’t like wearing heavy pj’s, like me. Having said that, with an all in one, you don’t have to worry about the top riding up, keeping your belly nice and warm.

I ordered an extra small since I’m roughly a 6 and it fits well. It’s quite snug so if you’re more of an 8 than a 6, I’d go for a bigger size. It has an elasticated waist which sits nicely on my hips and causes the top to fall in a flattering way. 

The straps on the back are adjustable so you can pull it tighter or wear it a little looser. I find that wearing it a little loose makes it more flattering as it falls in the right places. The straps are also crisscrossed which, I didn’t realise, make it SO comfy to wear!

Overall, this is the perfect piece for me. I hadn't heard much about Hunkemöller before they approached me but I'll definitely be checking out the rest of their collections. Plus, with Christmas on the way it might be a great place to check out. 

Love, Aoife x
