Every once in a while I’m stunned at how much some people love their lingerie. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fanatic like the best of them, but that has never translated into me spending $125 on a bag designed especially for transporting undergarments. Now, when reading up on these pretty lingerie bags by luxury lingerie label Spoylt I have to admit I’m very enchanted by the idea (even though I’ll need to get a new job if I ever want to really get such a decadent accessoire 😉 ).
The quilted bags have a removable seven-pocket console with each pocket embroidered with a day of the week — and come with a matching eye mask. The bags are currently on sale at $85.90 — which still is a lot for a bag for your lingerie, if you ask me.
I love the wine red/black version you can see in the pics, but Saks also has one with a flower print design. Let us know if you get one!
It’s a lot easier to justify buying an $85.00 bag, to store my most cherished pieces, than it is to buy a $230.00 nighty for, as you put it, “late-night movie on the couch”. P.s. these bags are $145.00 not $125.00 so $85.00 on sale is a fair deal.
I just received my Spoylt bag, and thought I’d offer my review. I got the Ginger (red/black one) from Saks. The Saks regular price is $124., but Spoylt and most other boutiques sell it for around $145. So $85 isn’t a bad price. You can get free shipping at Saks through 5/3 by using code SAKSTREAT.
First of all, it is beautifully made. The fabric is luscious, the embroidery is beautiful. It even has a cute little gold Spoylt heart logo for a zipper pull. It has six pockets inside. One side has two deep pockets. The other side has two shallow pockets on top of two deeper ones. These are in addition to the seven compartment pullout console (with each day of the week embroidered at the top), and could possibly hold a blindfold, mask, gloves or other small, non-bulky accessories.
It does come with a pretty sleep mask. The front is embroidered, and the elastic back is covered with ruched satin. It’s trimmed with a bow in the back. However, when I tried mine on, I found that the elastic was too tight for my liking. I couldn’t wear it as a sleep mask, and would probably find the tightness distracting if I were wearing for…other uses.
Now for the utility of the thing… It’s true that it *much* holds more than your average envelope style lingerie bag, but I wish it were a bit bigger overall. The bag is about 8″Hx6″Wx11.5″L. Each of the pockets in the lift out console are about 6″H x 1.5″D, although the fabric has some give, so you *can* stuff them a little bit. Still, each space seems designed to hold a demi bra and standard panty, and not much more. If you’re into more elaborate pieces like me, or maybe just wear a larger sized bra, you may find the
compartments too small for your liking. I tried to fit my favorite Chantal Thomass couture ensemble in the pockets, and found that my thong, garter, garter skirt and underwired half cup bra would fill this thing up from Monday to Wednesday…and don’t even ask me where my stockings would go! It’s true that there is a little space either above or below the console. There’s more at the top because of the case’s slightly curved shape, but I’d be hesitant to lay anything up there for fear it would be snagged by the zipper. I did manage to fit my favorite cropped bustier under the console, and it would still close, but if you’d be traveling with a lot of bustiers, a corset, or even babydolls or gowns, they probably just won’t fit.
Bottom line, I’ll likely keep mine. It is very nice. I’m just limited in what I can pack in it. Could someone please design for me a lingerie SUITCASE?!
Tammy: thank you so much for sharing. Really!
Lol.. I think I’m gonna need a lingerie suitcase, too! =)
Saks marked this Greta bag down to $51.54. Alas, the Ginger is sold out!
Thanks for the heads up, Katie!
