I need to do my first lingerie review. Any advice or suggestions on what details to focus on and what people want to hear about lingerie?

I copied this from a previous thread so these are not all my answers.


I would suggest getting a mentor to help you with your review. That way you'll be sure not to miss anything. Having someone to help you might make you a little less nervous as well.

Also check out lingerie reviews that are highly rated. Many of them have LOTS to say about the garment. It's not very hard to go over the word limit on some items! Hot 'N Sexy TexasMama, aliceinthehole, beck, Crystal1, and tigerkate all write awesome lingerie reviews (off the top of my head - so if I didn't include you it doesn't mean I don't think your reviews are great!)



I suggest creating a template you like and sticking with it. My personal template is to talk a bit about the packaging/materials/ca re, then move on to sizing and how it fit me (including my measurements), then explain each piece and list measurements where I can, then talk about the quality, any extra notes, and then put pictures at the end so that if people just want the written portion they can have that without having to wade through a bunch of pictures.


Some things to remember to include in your review are:

Type of material/washing instructions (I want to know ahead of time if it needs to be dry cleaned or hand washed)

How comfortable the fabric is or isn't

The length of the garment - and if the strap is adjustable

The length of the garters if it has any - and are they removable?

How is the breast support?

Things like that are important to me.

I'm pretty sure that any of us that regularly do lingerie reviews would be glad to mentor you or just help out with any questions you might have.



the above suggestions are really great. definitely follow a template. if you need ideas, it's always good to read through other reviews and see how others have written them. then come up with your own way!

personally, i love seeing pictures! the real life garment rarely looks like it does in the picture



And if you could model them so we can see what they look like on a "real" person that is always helpful.

The above tips are great!

I think the #1 thing on lingerie is size/fit. If you order a medium, and it says it should fit size 6-8, do you agree? Or does it run a little big/small? Anything that will help someone who is thinking about buying it decide "Yeah, I can buy my regular size" or "Hmm, maybe I should go for the XL instead of large on this one!"

Second is anything you use your senses for that you'd never be able to tell from the photos on the product page. Is the fabric thick or thin? Soft or itchy? Does it make you sweaty? Is it comfy enough to sleep in? Does it poke you somewhere weird or cut into your skin? Does it make a weird noise when you walk? Is the color what you expected from the photo, or is it way brighter/darker/more see-through?

Hope that helps!

Such awesome suggestions here! unfulfilled is so right about creating a template and thanks, Crystal, for mentioning those things like making sweaty, comfy as a sleepwear, making noise, etc. Some of these never occurred to me!

In my reviews I also try to include some relevant measurements of my body as well as describing my body type (e.g. small chest, wider hips) and mentioning what normally fits me and what doesn't. I don't give much space to that, but it sometimes can be quite helpful to have something to relate to when you are trying to decide on a product. Also, I like adding some fashion tips in the end or answer such questions as... Can you wear it outside? Can you have sex in it? Does it allow easy access to some parts of your body? How easy is it to put on/take off? And so on

Hppykamper, good luck with your first lingerie review! I would really love to read it!
