Although I don’t shop at Victoria’s Secret anymore, I still have a lot of panties from them that I wear. The quality is, well, fine, I suppose. Although they are cute I don’t expect tooooo much out of panties that are sometimes 10 pairs for $30 or whatever. When I compare them to panties and lingerie I get from say, Allure, then the difference in quality becomes more noticeable. There’s also a quality difference between a $50 corset and my Glamorous Corset. Before I owned my current corset I thought they were, well, overrated. I didn’t see the (practical) benefit from wearing one. And yes, as sexy as they are, there is a practical side to a corset. But my corset from Glamorous Corset? Oh my goodness. Quality and sexiness.
My point is that, for the most part, you get what you pay for when it comes to lingerie (and makeup). Although my purse would prefer I purchase a $5 pair of panties from Target, my body appreciates the panties that I spent $30 on. Again, crossdressing takes patience, time, and money. I feel that there is a benefit in investing in this side of me.
When I first heard about Moot, I fell in love with their designs. Moot is a newish lingerie designer for crossdressers and girls like us. Their designs not only fit someone like us, but their designs are, in my opinion, what I want in my lingerie and panty drawer… what I mean is their lingerie is super cute and super feminine. I loved their designs but I was taken aback by the price. Moot isn’t Victoria’s Secret when it comes to price.
To their credit, Moot acknowledges that. They pride themselves on quality and after being sent some items to review, I have to say that they’re right. Moot lingerie is super cute, and the quality is on another level.
Each item is handmade in England using materials that are ethically sourced. I know this doesn’t matter to everyone but, well, it matters to me. As I get older I make more of an effort to shop local, buy from independent businesses, and eat at non-chain restaurants. Moot aligns with my values perfectly.
But the lingerie… how is it? The quality is the first thing I noticed. The panties I was sent to review didn’t feel or look cheap. They felt luxurious. A perfect combination of lace and mesh and small details. One pair (The Quentin) is sexy and comfortable (which is what I want from lingerie).
The front holds my feminine flaw perfectly and the cut open detail in the back is alluring and flirty.
My favorite pair is the Floral Brief. This is transparent lace and the back is, well, tiny, but it fits like a dream. Both panties are welcome additions to my lingerie drawer(s). I suppose at this point I need a lingerie closet.
Moot isn’t cheap, and they pride themselves on not being cheap. Their pride is well deserved and the quality is truly second to none. Moot is what I want to find when it comes to my lingerie… ethically sourced, handmade, feminine, comfortable, and sexy.
Thank you to Moot for providing these panties. I heart them.
