“In a world that profits from self-doubt, liking yourself is the start of a revolution.”
This is the first sentence that you’ll see upon visiting the Love, Maddie! collection on Lily of the Valley‘s page. A powerful line for women like me who were always seen as too much of something — too thin, too chubby, too headstrong, too naïve, too talkative, and a whole lot of adjectives that plant self-doubt. If it’s not our physical appearance, it could also be something we’re wearing — too revealing, too modest, too formal, and so on. But the thing is that people will always have something to say about us and that doesn’t really matter. What truly matters is how we feel about ourselves. If it makes us happy, then so be it. This is exactly what this collection is about. Love, Maddie creator Maddie Cruz wants to aid more women to become their “best self” by helping them feel at their best.
The Love, Maddie collection is designed for women of all sizes, shapes, and skin tones, emphasizing the company’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity. It features a range of bodysuits that can be dressed up or down for any occasion — from simple, classic styles to bold, statement pieces, the collection has something for everyone. The bodysuits are individually made based on our body measurements using high-quality, soft materials that provide comfort and support while accentuating a woman’s curves.
One of the most appealing aspects of the Love, Maddie collection is its design. It’s a mix of lace, see-through, and breathable fabrics that feel like a second skin! The see-through portions also add comfort and are not revealing at all (unless you purposely want to show them off). The bodysuits are also reasonably priced, allowing women to build a collection of versatile pieces without breaking the bank.
These can be paired with high-waisted jeans for a casual, everyday look or worn with a skirt for a night out on the town. I’ve tried pairing them with a rugged denim jacket for a concert look and as an innerwear for an all-white corporate attire to test how versatile it is and it did not disappoint! If lace designs aren’t your thing, the collection also includes statement pieces that can be paired with dress pants or a blazer for a more formal occasion.
Since each piece is created based on individual measurements, so expect the fit to be perfect. The bra part comes with an underwire for support while the back portion includes extended hooks in case your size changes over time.
In addition to the Love, Maddie collection, Lily of the Valley also offers a range of other clothing items designed with the modern woman in mind, emphasizing comfort, style, and affordability. Truly a must-have for any woman’s wardrobe! With its inclusive sizing, range of colors, and versatile styles, the collection offers something for everyone. Whether you’re dressing up for a night out or keeping it casual for a day at work, the Love, Maddie collection has got you covered.

PRICE AND HOW TO PURCHASE
Pieces under Love, Maddie range from Php 1,199 to Php 2,699. Aside from the lace bodysuit, they also offer corset tops and t-shirt bras for all sizes. To make a purchase, simply visit their website here, select or enter your body measurements, click “Add to Cart”, proceed with payment, and wait for the confirmation message. Since each piece is specially made for your body measurements, it may take 2-3 weeks for the Lily of the Valley team to process and ship your order. Worth the wait, though!
For those who do not know their body measurements, you may follow the instructions on their page in order to provide accurate numbers. In case you’re not sure about something, feel free to reach out to the Lily of the Valley team via the Messenger icon for assistance. I have no idea when it comes to these things and they’ve been so friendly and patient with me the entire time.
Another thing I like about Lily of the Valley is that they’re very considerate when it comes to their exchange policy. In case your bodysuit doesn’t fit due to sudden changes in your size (though this rarely happens), they’re willing to adjust it for you as long as items are unwashed, undamaged, and tags are intact.
Superb products and after-sales service!
