Wantable Intimates Box, November 2013

This is my second Wantable Intimates box.  They always ship these a few days before the start of the month, so this is for November!  Boy, these months are flying by!

This costs $40 for a one-time purchase or $36 for a monthly subscription, where you can skip a month or cancel at any time.  You fill out a very detailed profile with what clothing items and styles you like, as well as colors, sizes, etc.  If you are interested, please use my link here!  I'll get a $10 credit for everyone who joins with that link.  

Upon first look, I wasn't thrilled:

Muk Luks Tights in Plum

Tights.  I don't really wear tights.  These are a dark plum and are ribbed and I'm not sure that I'll wear them.  Now, this label says Muk Luks and the info sheet I was sent says they are by Izabella. It seems that they are one and the same?  I'm not sure, but these sell for about $10.50 at Target, yet Wantable listed them valued at $19.

Things got better with the next item I pulled out:

Undies Couture by Lauren Copeland Lace Hipster in Black

This is a black lace hipster by Undies Couture, which seems to be part of Coobie.  Again, the tag and the info sheet don't match up except for in description.  Googling seems to confirm that Coobie is in charge of the Undies Couture line.  Either way, these are really nice!  They fit well, and unlike a lot of hipsters, they actually stay up past my butt crack.  I feel like I have permanent plumbers' crack with some of the lace hipsters I have! These fit and are very comfortable.

 Wantable lists this retail price at $14.

Next came another pair of undies:

Jockey Clean Edge Cheeky Fit Microfiber Stretch Boyshort

I am not in love with the pattern, but I love seamless and clean edge undies! These will definitely get worn, I have a few pairs like this that I wear often and it's nice to have another. I haven't tried them on yet, but the material feels soft and like it would be virtually unnoticeable while wearing.

The tag on them says $12 or 3 for $30.  Wantable went with the individual value of $12, but I'll call it $10 in my overall total.  

The last item is by far my favorite, and I'm glad that I pulled it out last!  This totally makes the box worth it to me, and I will stick around for another month based upon this item alone.

Betsey Johnson Luscious Knit and Chiffon Slip in Black, Front

Betsey Johnson Luscious Knit and Chiffon Slip, Back.

It's a Betsey Johnson slip!  It has some bow details on the front and back, some tiny rose details where the shoulder traps meet the front, and some chiffon inserts to add some sex appeal.  There is a bra closure in the middle of the back, and the rest is cut away to the hip line.  

This is absolutely something that I would have picked out for myself, but put back on the rack when I saw the price!  It fits perfectly and is very comfortable and flattering.  The material is so soft and it is sexy without being trashy or cheap-feeling.  It's just a really good quality slip that is already one of my favorites!

Suggested retail from Wantable (and the tag on it) is $65.

I paid $36 for (on the low end of the prices) $99.50 worth of wardrobe staples.

I'm really impressed with the items I received this month, and with some tweaking to my profile, I hope next month will be equally awesome, or better!

All items in this post were paid for by me.  All opinions are my own and no special compensation or consideration was received.  This post contains a referral link.  See details in post.


  1. If you'd like to trade your tights for my Betsey Johnson sleep shorts (size M) I'm totally okay with that.

    I love the slip!

  2. That sounds good to me! What are they valued at? I can bring some other stuff for you to pick from if you want.

    1. They're valued at $29. Maybe a small nail polish or something?
