Bodyline Review: Wristcuffs ACC1031, Bolero L062 and Bloomers PAN031

Today, my newest Bodyline order arrived! I used AIR shipping and it only took 11 days so I'm pretty pleased. Plus, I didn't get charged a customs fee! I feel very lucky as they seem to be hitting people right, left and centre at the moment.

I decided to get a few wardrobe staples I was lacking.

First off, the wristcuffs! They're the first pair I've bought because I always found the brand and indie ones far too expensive for what they were. I didn't even know Bodyline did wristcuffs until I saw a review of them on my friend's blog.
I love them!

They are quite big and OTT with pearled ribbons, a row of lace at the wrist, and two more flaring out beneath. They look really great over the cuffs of a plain white cardigan, and are very comfortable to wear without.

Next I got a black bolero. The one I already had was regular cardigan length, which can be a bit awkward seeing as lolita skirts sit at the waist.
The fabric is soft and feels neither too thin nor too thick, quite similar to strong t-shirt/cutsew material.

I didn't expect to like the lace but it's very soft and quite cute. The ruffles everywhere are also a nice touch.

I finally got myself a pair of bloomers! I've been putting it off for so long!
Again, the fabric is lovely and soft, and the eyelet lace is wonderful.

There are a few rows of lace at the back, giving you a "rufflebutt" and adding the teeniest amount of volume to your skirt.The bloomers sit at my hips, and they reach about halfway down my thighs which I find to be a perfect length (I'm 5ft 6 for reference).

And, that's it! I'm very pleased with my order  

[Update 12/5/16: That bolero is still going strong and remains an important wardrobe staple, but those bloomers... ugh. They are very short and ride up when you wear them, with the leg elastic being so loose with barely any stretch that they don't really have a purpose, which naturally allows a lot of wedgies to occur. The fabric is 100% cotton, however it is untreated, and makes a crunchy sound when you move. For these reasons, I wouldn't recommend these bloomers! I make my own now, and they are so much better!
