Silk and Lace: A Review of the Morgan Chemise by NK iMode

Review items were provided by NK iMode. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I'll be honest and upfront: I was pretty thrilled when this review came through, as NK iMode is a lingerie brand I've seen often in local lingerie boutiques and never had a chance to try. Like many full busted women, I frequently find myself passing display windows of pretty luxury lingerie and thinking "Nope, no way I'll get my boobs into that." I'm so glad I got to try this, because now I'll be going back to feeling adventurous and confident in boutiques rather than pessimistic.

NK iMode is a brand specializing in introductory silk lingerie and loungewear. I'll be focusing specifically on the Morgan chemise build today, but if you want to see the rest of their collection, check out Laurie's preview of it here.

I was given the Morgan Chemise in black to review, in size XL. The construction of the chemise is one of those pieces that either really works for full busted women or is a total disaster: if the stretch lace portion is low quality, you fall out the front. If it's well built with good materials, then it provides a bit of lift and allows for a dramatic bust/underbust difference. I'm currently a 34HH/36H bra size, so I wasn't sure how this chemise and I would get along.

Luckily, it fits incredibly well! While this piece isn't designed to be for full busted women, it's actually a great choice if you want a nice classic silk chemise and don't mind not having any internal support. While this won't give you the same lift as your favorite underwire bra, the stretch lace creates enough support to make you feel both lifted and comfortable. I've had this piece for several weeks now and found it comfortable enough to sleep in - without falling out the sides or the middle if I roll over at night. The stretch lace panel is also strong enough to hold you in place without your breasts falling through the bottom elastic line, which can be a problem in lesser built pieces.

The silk skirt of the chemise is light and comfortable. Silk quality can really vary among brands in this introductory luxury category and the silk that NK iMode uses is much better than a lot of the silk that you see. I especially love how breathable the whole thing is. While it's been cold here recently, I suspect this will be a staple of my summer sleepwear due to lightness and breathability.

I'm definitely ready to hit up my local boutique and check out more from NK iMode, especially pieces that use this same stretch lace construction in the top. While I can't vouch for the rest of the line, full busted ladies should be more than okay fitting into anything with "Morgan" in the name from this line.

Which lingerie lines do you full busted ladies love from your local lingerie boutique? Have you tried NK iMode?

    I own the fuchsia color silk & lace chemise and adore it. I wear a 32 FF bra and purchased a medium, which works perfectly for me. I do wish the length was a bit longer. As a more mature woman I prefer to hide my thighs but don’t like long gowns because I get all twisted up while sleeping. Regardless, I love the style and fit. Thank you!

    I actually have the black chemise (and one similar to the last one) that I purchased for my honeymoon! While not quite full busted, as a plus-size gal, I was thrilled with how accommodating the sizing is. I’m roughly an 18, 40D/DD, and both pieces fit well (though a bit snug on the underbust). I’m super thrilled that Trashy Diva is local, so I can pick up more of these beautiful pieces!

    • Dear Ashley,
      Thank you very much for your kind comments :)
      We are always happy to accommodate all of our beautiful customers with all of their lingerie needs.
      We look forward to speaking with you soon.
      Thank you!

    The Morgan Lace Chemise is my first recommendation for any full bust customer I have that’s looking for a chemise. (And most of my smaller busted customers too!) The construction behind it is amazing. I often call it an engineering wonder. It fits A cups, and F cups, across the board. Not all of NK iModes pieces are as amazing for support (though the Morgan line is by far the best), but overall their work is beautiful, and good quality.

    Oooh, Holly, these are LOVELY! I’m going to have to take a look, as I’m pretty much the same bra size as you. My VERY first lingerie boutique purchase was a lovely NK black silk slip (15 years ago!) and I doubt the quality has changed. Love the fact that it’s a Canadian brand!
