What woman doesn’t love a bit of lace to waft around in? I do, so I was keen to try on the Doutzen Lace Kimono from Hunkemöller.
It arrived in a brown cardboard box and the only giveaway of what was inside was the Hunkemöller name. Good to know if you wanted this to arrive as a surprise.
The kimono is well made in 100% polyamide, which looks like lace, with a satin trim. It has long sleeves and tie sash at the waist and is decorated with a pretty floral design with feathered edging on the bottom and sleeve ends. There is even a nice detail of a gold “D” on the neckline showing the Doutzen make. The washing label suggests it’s hand wash only.
The addition of the kimono over a nice lingerie set finishes off a sexy look and will make you feel fabulous – even if all you’re doing is making a coffee and bacon sandwich and heading back to bed with a good book. You’ll feel like a million dollars.
This would make a great Christmas or birthday gift for the special lady in your life. It’s difficult buying women lingerie as you might not know what size to get for bra and knickers. This kimono eliminates that problem because there are only three sizes to choose from. The XS/S covers sizes 6-10, the M/L covers 12-18 and XL/XXL 20-26.
If you are confident in her sizing then you can also get the lace top (RRP: £20), bra and shortie knickers to match.
In short, I’m really pleased with my kimono and look forward to future wafting. As Hunkemöller say themselves: “Life is about pretty moments – Enjoy this one.”
