Will you offer advice on reviewing an item that I don't love?

ViVix ViVix
I just got a free review item, and I put it (lingerie) on. It wasn't flattering at all and definitely seemed a bit off on the sizing. I feel like I have a lot of issues with it, though I can see where it could work better for others. The thing is, I'm having a hard time reviewing it. I really don't want to post pics, though I know they would be helpful. What gets you motivated to do a review on an item you didn't necessarily fall in love with? Will you offer advice?

Since the purpose of the review program is to give an honest opinion, your experience and review should be exactly that. Give your impressions on why it does and does not work, and for whom it will/won't work, and you'll be fine.

Besides, if all the reviews were 5-star, it would defeat the purpose, right?

I agree with OhMy! Furthermore, for lingerie, I do think pictures are very helpful. If you are not comfortable showing your entire body, maybe try to crop out parts except for the areas where you are actually wearing the lingerie. Many times, you actually look better in something than you think, at least in my experience. Regardless, just be as honest as possible.

With products like this, I go into descriptive review mode, so to speak. I tell about the product, sizing/fit, material, and features it may have in the main body(s) of the review. Then in the 'Personal' and 'Experience' sections I let folks know what I did not like about it. That way all the bases are covered and folks know what I truly think. Funny thing about reviews like this, you never know...someone might find that something you don't like appeals to them.

I say try to keep positive but be completely honest! If you're really uncomfortable with showing pics of yourself wearing the lingerie then maybe just lay the piece out on a bed and take a pic of it by itself. I'm too shy to ever post lingerie pics of myself and that's what I do.

I don't write reviews, only my Baby does. But I assume that it is always a good motivation to get the word out so others won't purchase a not good enough thing...

Agreed, I always can't wait to make myself get to write the ones on such toys! ^^

I agree! This is a great way to handle the item that would not work for you--but might for others.

I feel when writing a review(not really including EF toys) if I do not like an item I feel its more of a reason to write the review. If you didn't like it and there were things wrong it more of a reason to write the review to let others know.

That is exactly what I do too. It works really well for me.

I think you should give an honest review to help future buyers

Just give as many facts as you can about the item ( material, size etc). Them add what you don't like and why. Be honest! I personally appreciate a well written negative review rather than one I know is fluff.
