Wantable Intimates August 2014 Collection

I fancied a little beauty box break recently, so when I discovered the Wantable Intimates box I could not resist!

Wantable offer 4 boxes; beauty, accessories, intimates and fitness. The intimates box took my fancy so I filled in the little quiz on the website about my taste and the items I would not like to receive (I'm lookin' at you, tights!) and sent in my order. Shipping was fast and easy, and I was fairly happy with my box.

The pyjama set first took my eye; soft material, a cute pattern, and a button-down top make for an adorable sleep situation! I have been wearing these very often since they arrived, and I have really enjoyed them. They would not be something I'd have picked but I'm glad I had them picked for me as I do like them. You do have to stretch out the fabric after washing them, but overall they're a nice set.

I'm not really a tank-top wearer, but this blue number by Yummie by Heather Thomson acts as seamless shapewear which sucks you in and gives you a svelte silhouette. You can also wear this as fitness-wear or as thermal-wear underneath your clothes, as it keeps you cool when it's hot and warms you up when it's cold! Pretty damn clever.

The item I'm not a huge fan of is this bright pink mesh thong from Third Love, as it just looks cheap and flimsy. I look for luxury in my lingerie and this does not fit the bill. It does come with a $10 gift card for Third Love, but I won't be wearing this unless it's washing day.

As for price, this is where I struggled. A one-off box is $40 (£24.49) and a subscription is $36 (£22.04) per month, and you get to take the quiz and change what you want each month. Wantable do ship to the UK, so that is really useful, but you pay handling at $7 (£4.29) and tax at $7.20 (£4.41), making my whole subscription $50.20 (£30.74). This just seems pricey to me, but perhaps that is only because I'm used to beauty box subscriptions which are less than half the price - I guess you have to bear in mind that you get full clothing items in this box, so it is up to you whether the price is justified; would you be paying £30 on intimates each month anyway? If so, this may be the box for you!
