Review: Euphoria Chemise by Tia Lyn

I’m back this month and really excited to review some new goodies that I picked up over the holidays. This review is even more appropriate as Erica is the smart lady who turned me onto Tia Lyn, which is now one of my favorite loungewear brands.

Since I work from home, my standards of “getting dressed” these days are pretty lax. Lots of days, I’ll just throw on some comfy loungewear instead of clothes if I’m not planning to go anywhere. Consequently, my loungewear goes through a lot. I have two dogs, I’m klutz who drinks lots of caffeinated beverages and I definitely don’t treat my loungewear very delicately. I’ve tried lots of high end loungewear sets that use modal in the past, but haven’t been really impressed. Modal fabric feels great, but doesn’t always hold up to washing or long term wear. I’m really pleased to report that this set has held up spectacularly over the past month or so that I’ve had it, which makes this line worth the investment for me based on longevity alone.

Erica is carrying this in the store in silver currently, but since I’m a color hog I asked her to special order the Mint colorway for me. In the interest of realism, I’ve shot these images without a bra so you can see the actual level of built in support. I am someone who can’t sleep with underwires, so I’m really okay with this most of the time. This chemise is secure enough to sleep in and not fall out of, but it also provides a reasonable amount of support if I’m just lounging around. Since I assume most of you have jobs where you actually have to leave your house, I foresee this piece being sleepwear or loungewear for most. I’m current a 36H in most UK brands, so this level of support is really pretty impressive for something that is essentially a built in shelf bra. Of course, if you just can’t live without underwired support, you can always layer it over a bra.

The embroidered details on this piece are stunning, but I particularly like how the embroidery that covers the shelf bra on the bust section is reused with a more sheer texture on the sides of the chemise. It’s an impressive level of detail for the price point and feels really luxurious.

The other Tia Lyn piece I own has a bra style clasp in back, but this one doesn’t. I find that it honestly doesn’t make much difference. These pieces aren’t designed to give a super precise fit in terms of cup size and stretch with wear anyway. The band will inevitably get looser with long term wear and then come back to it’s original size when you wash the chemise. If you are between sizes, this does mean that you might want to size down rather than up.

I tried both the matching hipster and the thong with this set, because I’ve found that I wear my Tia Lyn pieces often enough that I like having two matching sets of undies to go with them. Surprisingly, I didn’t feel that the hipster and the thong were terribly different in terms of comfort and coverage – and this is coming from someone who hates thongs. I like having two different matching pairs of undies enough that I’m contemplating ordering two with any future sets as long as I can afford it. Tia Lyn is the rare brand where matching panties are not an afterthought and are designed as well as the items they accompany. I’ve been mixing and matching these panties in my regular lingerie routine because they are just that comfortable, so to me they are worth the investment.

I’m incredibly pleased with both the fit and feel of this set. I’ve tried modal sets that are at least twice as expensive that have pilled after one wash, so I’m thrilled at how this has held up. It’s survived dog fur, coffee, holiday breakfasts and even a washing machine soap scum accident that made me afraid for it’s future. As you can see, it’s still in great shape.

If you’re full busted or in that weird not plus but not standard size category, give Tia Lyn a try!

    On your recommendation I purchased the Euphoria chemise, in silver. None of my concerns about the modal fabric mattered once I put the chemise on. It is lovely as well as functional. I am middle aged, wear a US 32H or UK 32FF bra, and am on a constant hunt to find sleepwear that will accommodate my breasts AND fit my ribcage. This has been next to impossible but Tia Lyn has nailed it. My first Tia Lyn purchase was their Core Button chemise which is similar in construction to the Euphoria and holds everything very well all night long. I am so pleased with the fit of these chemises! My only disappointment with Tia Lyn is that there aren’t more saturated colors such as fuchsia or royal blue.

      Lynn, I’d love to see fuchsia or royal blue enter the collection too . . . or emerald! For spring, their Decadence collection is actually available in a very saturated baby blue. I don’t know if you’ve seen pictures yet, but it’s a real stunner albeit not in a darker color.

        Their Decadence collection is not on their web site, only found it on their Facebook page. The Decadence collection looks beautiful but will it keep breasts contained with support? The Euphoria chemise is not on their web site although I did find it on a few retailer’s web sites. I found photos of red satin Core collection items but, again, nothing on the Tia Lyn web site. Thier web site is not very informative about upcoming collections.

          Hi Lynn! Their website doesn’t seem to have all the latest items unfortunately. To answer your question, decadence, to me, is not really intended to do more with support. I think the collection really deserves to be marketed more as a traditional camisole and slip set. I know that’s what I am considering it for because of the fabrics and the embroidery. I think the cami could work under a blazer with a pencil skirt for dinner. The core items and bralettes seems to have better bust support from what I’ve seen.
