Beautiful, Beautiful Corset - It just had no lift.

Overall, this was a good purchase. I just wish it fit my breasts better. I would still recommend this corset to a friend or family member in a split second. It's beautiful, sexy, and elegant, all in one.

The Polka-Dot Mesh Corset is absolutely gorgeous. Looks the same way you see it online: Subtle, yet easily felt velvet polka-dots, two big beautiful bows, and a fluffy, ruffled breast line. It's naughty enough to be worn in the bedroom, but pretty enough to be worn as everyday attire atop some jeans.


The quality of the mesh material is really nice. Just a tad stretchy, but solid enough to flatter and fit any body type. The ruffles at the top and bottom of the corset give an illusion of having a lengthier corset, which is great for those who have longer torsos. It really flatters the body and hides what you don't want to be seen. I particularly hate my small tummy, and this corset easily masked that feature and turned me into a showgirl in no time at all.


This corset is not laced up, but is closed using a hook and eye system, similar to the back of a bra strap. For me, this made it a lot easier to put the corset on by myself, and for my fiance to remove easily when he's ready to see my sexy naked body! If you look at the product page you will see clearly that stockings are not included. This corset does however, come with garters if you need them. The front garters hook on right underneath the two front bows, and the back garters hook on in about the same place on the back side. I was searching for a while trying to figure out where to hook them on, since the material is all one solid color. The garter hooks are actually completely underneath on the inside of the corset. So hook up your garters before you put the corset on.


The Polka-Dot Mesh corset has no breast support whatsoever. I have size C cups, and I bought the 1x. Everything fit well except for the breast cups, which constantly fell down on their own making it hard to wear. My fiance didn't mind too much but I was very upset. I was able to fix this problem by actually buying and sewing heavily padded cups to the inside of the corset for extra support and stability. Once I did this the breast area stayed up on it's own, however, it does not give the "push-up" affect many would hope for. I recommend buying some invisible breast wear such as breast tape, silicone bras, etc. to give you invisible support.


This corset takes longer to put on than take off. Although it is easy to put on, it takes a while. I recommend putting the corset on backwards and then slowly rotating it until the cups reach the front of your body. Then you can adjust your breasts and whatnot. My roommate has never had trouble putting on hook and eye corsets from the back, but I cannot seem to achieve that skill. If you're like me, this corset is for you.


I feel it to be repetitive to list my body measurements in reviews, so if you're interested in buying this piece, please look at the measurement chart on the product page to find what fits you best. I would say it best to buy this corset based on all body measurements excluding breast cup size. If I had bought a large instead of a 1X, this would have been too small on me. If worst comes to worst and the breast cups are too large, you can always do what I did and sew on some breast cups from an old bra. If you breasts are too large, I can't see that being an issue. You would get better cleavage, and the cups would stay up a lot easier for you. I still recommend buying some breast tape or an invisible silicone bra to help with breast support, nonetheless.


This corset should be washed in a lingerie bag and put on a delicate, cold cycle. A soft detergent designed for dark clothes would be best so you don't wash out the color, but lingerie detergents are best, as they are designed for both color and material. I would advise you all to wash this corset only with a few other black undergarments to reduce the chance of any damage. This corset should be hung up to dry or put on a cool, low spin cycle. I was so worried about damaging this one that I am having it taken to the dry cleaners. I also noticed it picks up quite a lot of white fibers and needs to be starched after washing.
Experience
I really do love this corset. I wish it fit my breasts correctly, but a simple fix was all it took to make this piece work. My fiance has found his new favorite bedtime outfit, and I couldn't feel more comfortable wearing this one. It isn't itchy, there are no pieces ready to stick out and poke you, and it flatters my body quite a lot. It's always been hard for me to find a corset that fits perfectly with my figure, and this one is the closest I've come in a long time. I was a little bummed about the lack of breast support, but it was easily fixed with a few adjustments and the use of an old padded bra. It was somewhat of a hassle to have to go out and buy breast tape but it made my cleavage look a lot nicer and my fiance thinks it gave a really nice push-up effect to wearing this corset. As long as one takes care of this corset in the wash, it should last for years. I can't see the material getting worn out anytime soon. Just be sure to use some maximum strength starch after washing this one to give it a more solid look and feel. Nonetheless, if you want something comfortable to wear to bed while making your significant other drool, let it be this corset.
Follow-up commentary
This corset basically just sits in my closet now. I don't find much use for it because the material has lost all of it's firmness, even with double starch. Everytime I try to wear it I have to starch it 2-3 times. You definitely have to dry-clean this corset, which is something I didn't find to be a problem, but now is a pain in the ass. So this corset is probably one I will give to my sister or a friend.
