I received an invitation last week to a neighbour’s bridal shower. It was actually a bridal lingerie party wherein the guests basically choose items for the bride while she is present and then everything is delivered to her when ready. She is able to choose her own sizing and if certain styles are not quite her personality, she does not have to worry about exchanging anything. But the invitation had me thinking about lingerie party plans in general and I wondered what companies were still around. I know it used to be that I was invited to a lingerie party almost once a month but I had not seen any lately.
UndercoverWear Home Parties is the oldest lingerie party plan company in the business. International success throughout United States and Canada, the company is celebrating its thirty-first year in the business. Family owned and operated the James keep a very high profile by hosting fashion shows, accepting interviews and providing lingerie to the stars. In fact for the 2007 Daytime Emmy Awards, they presented gift bags of lingerie and spa products to the show’s host and many performers. They were also recently invited to The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch and in their early years they were guests on both the Phil Donahue and Oprah shows.
Their lingerie selection includes pyjamas, chemises, babydolls, sleepshirts, bras, panties, nightgowns and camisoles. Perusing the website, I see that they have given much thought to the pieces that go into their inventory. Sexy, modern, fairly priced and excellent sizing are hallmarks of this lingerie party plan company.
I fell in love with the Lavender Wisps, a pretty chiffon camisole and ruffled bikini panty. The sweet little bows and ruffles on both the cami and panty finish the set off nicely. In addition to this cute set, many of the items come in sizes from Small – 3X. Another very pretty item was the Divine long gown in satin with braided neckline. And the Sophie two-piece camisole and long pant pyjama set was absolutely beautiful in shimmering brown.
UndercoverWear does not seem to offer refunds but do allow a thirty-day exchange program for damaged items or poor sizing. Lastly, I was impressed with the fact that the models shown were of all sizes and looked natural. The line would appeal to a very large group of women.
