Amazing Lace!

It isn't often that a lingerie item looks better on me than I expected and hoped. This babydoll is easy to put on, has a comfortable and forgiving fit, will accommodate and look good on a range of bust sizes, slims the waist, and flatters curves! The lace bodice is beautiful and sheer, the handkerchief hemline is floaty and feminine, and the lovely deep-violet color is the icing on the cake.
Published:
Pros:

The Essentials
This is a unique and elegantly flirty two-piece babydoll set in stretch lace and mesh, made in Mexico for Escanté. The set consists of a babydoll-style chemise with fitted lace cups and a flowing mesh skirt, and a mesh g-string panty to match. It can be worn by anyone who enjoys the look and feel of lace and mesh, and the design will accommodate and flatter many different body shapes.

The Details
Let's begin with the babydoll piece. The front half is topped off by a beautiful, sheer lace, comprising the cups and the underbust band. The cups have an elongated triangle shape with a center vertical seam for shaping; the majority of the lace is knitted in a small, checkerboard-like pattern, which becomes a swirly floral pattern along the neckline.

The band beneath the cups is cut from the floral-patterned lace, and has a center vertical seam where its two halves come to a slight upward point. The lace has some shimmery thread here and there, particularly in the centers of the flower petals, which adds elegance to the set. The outer edges of the cups are trimmed with satiny elastic bands; these continue past the tops of the cups to thread through loops at the back, and then become long halter ties with plenty of adjustability.

In back, the babydoll is all stretch mesh--no lace. The lace underbust band ends at the side seams, where its upper and lower edges meet two elastic bands sewn into the back. The elasticized back provides a snug fit at the banded area, as well as adding to the light breast support. One unique feature of this babydoll is the wide, elastic-trimmed mesh straps that rise from the top of the band in back. These straps become loops at the top that connect them to the halter-ties coming from the front, and they can be positioned along those ties as desired for a more personalized fit.

All the way around, the skirt-piece of this babydoll is full, sheer mesh with a serged hem ending in many little points. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has looked at this detail and thought, "Faerie costume!" Indeed, with a bra or snug top beneath this babydoll (or not), I believe it would make a lovely cosplay outfit--just add wings and sparkly violet eyeshadow!

The panty, as noted above, is a very basic little matching mesh g-string. It has three redeeming features, however: a stretchy waistband appropriately sized to match the babydoll; a cotton gusset panel; and a sliding loop where the between-the-cheeks strap meets the waistband (so it's easy to move aside if you're too hot and bothered to remove the panty).

The Fit
I ordered this set in a size Medium, which is often my size in lingerie, although Escanté items tend to have a smaller fit than some other brands. I am 5'5" tall, weigh about 140 pounds, wear a 34C bra most days, and measure 37-28-40.

EsBD_06

The official size chart says Medium should fit people with:

Clothing size of 6 - 10
Weight of 120 - 140
Bra cup size of B - C
Bust measurement of 34" - 36"
Waist measurement of 28" - 30"
Hip measurement of 32" - 34"

(Insert record-scratching sound here.) Wait--what? That's an awfully tiny hip measurement to go with all of those other sizes. I'm going to give Escanté the benefit of the doubt, and assume that they're referring to the upper hip or dropped-waist measurement there, rather than the correct hip measurement taken around the fullest part of the hips/derriére. In addition, I believe that what they list as the "bust" is actually meant to be the bra band size, because I'm certain the Medium would fit up to at least a 34DD bra size, which would be about a 39" bust measurement.

EsBD_07

Here are the actual measurements of this set:

Cup Width = 6" - 7.5"
Cup Height = 11" - 15"
Underbust Band* = 24" - 33"
Hips = Free Size
Front Length (top of cup to hem) = 30"
Back Length (top of mesh strap to hem) = 31"
G-string Waistband* = 27" - 36"
G-string Rise = 6"
*Unstretched to comfortably stretched, taken flat and doubled.

Both pieces fit me well, and would fit someone a little to either side of the size chart from me, too. Due to the halter-tie neck, the design of the cups, the free-flowing fabric at the hips, and the overall stretch, this will also fit and look great on a wide range of body types. My cup size is obviously several sizes smaller than the model in the product photos, but I still feel lightly supported and very attractive in this set.

Experience
Care and Packaging
My babydoll set arrived simply packaged in a clear plastic bag, with a small paperboard brand tag attached at the underarm elastic. The brand tag does show the model image, so I'd suggest either placing a white decal over that or just removing it if you're giving this to someone as a gift. The last thing your beautiful partner or friend needs is a photo showing her what she's "supposed" to look like in it!

This set, as you can probably imagine, is on the delicate side. Its thin, open-weave fabrics and its 89% Nylon/11% Elastane content mean that it's best to launder it either by hand or in a lingerie bag on the gentlest wash cycle, and hang it up to dry. I also like to use a nice-smelling fabric softener in the rinse water for my hand-washables such as this, because it helps wrinkles fall out and just makes the fabric even softer on the skin and to the touch. And that's what lingerie is for--to encourage someone to touch us, right?

My Experience
If you've read any of my other lingerie reviews, you may think that I am just so particular about my lingerie that I don't like anything. However, this is far from true! I am absolutely in love with this wispy little babydoll set. I had to really reach to find a some "cons" to list in my Summary section. Out of the thirty or more items I've tried on and/or ordered to find a few sexy outfits for my upcoming vacation with my partner, this was one of the four I've bought and kept. I love how quick and easy it is to slip into, how comfortable it is on, and how pretty and sexy it makes me feel. I can't wait to see my partner's reaction to it!
Follow-up commentary
Well...my partner liked this one, and thought it was pretty and sexy. However, it turns out that she's more fond of lingerie that doesn't have sheer cups! I'm not sure how I wasn't aware of this, after two years--I suppose I must never have worn anything so sheer for her previously. I'm thinking about trying to add a lining to the cups.

I actually wish there was an option for "I like it a little less," because the string thong panty was actually pretty uncomfortable after wearing for a few minutes. I'm a size 6 in dresses and a size 8 in jeans; there is no reason a "Medium" panty should be too tight for comfort, unless this is Juniors sizing (which would be very odd in lingerie).
