Beautiful but Tiny

This corset is absolutely beautiful. It's very well made and the detailing is gorgeous. The sizing runs very small, so you'll have to order larger than you usually would. Otherwise, it's a great choice for your lingerie collection.

extremely useful review
I have lusted after this corset for a while now. It's gorgeous. It's pink... and I love lingerie. I have the Polka-Dot Mesh Corset by Coquette in a 1X/2X already. It was a little big for me. Gauging by that sizing and the information I've read about corsets, I figured I should go down a size, especially with the difference in the closures. The Polka-Dot corset has hooks and eyes all the way down the back (like a bra) and this one was a more traditional lace-up corset. Everything I've read about corsets suggests that your corset should be smaller than your bra size, as a lot of corsets are measured by inches rather than S/M/L/XL.

I figured wrong. The corset is too small for me, currently, and it runs smaller than the size chart suggests. The bust on this should have measured between 42-44", which would have fit me fine. The actual measurements of the corset range from 33" (completely cinched) to 39"(with the lace as far as it will loosen). That's way off, in my opinion. It looks like it's going on waist measurements, rather than bust measurements like other corsets. Even so, it runs very small.

Other than the sizing issue, the corset is wonderful. There are six metal busk fasteners along the front. It seems like they are connected to a plastic bone just inside the seam. It's very sturdy, but can be a pain to fasten. There are alternating patterns of soft pink satin and an embroidered cherry blossom pattern. The embroidered panels are positioned so they create a nice shapely, curvy illusion. There is one on the outside of either breast and one on each side of the lace-up rings. The entire corset is trimmed with a dark pink, satin ribbon.

There are twenty-two plastic bones around the entire corset. Most of them are evenly spaced. The bones along the breasts and that should fit at your sides are double-boned, which should help create an hourglass shape. There are fourteen holes down each side of the back that you lace up with the pretty pink, satin ribbon. They're spaced nicely and the corset comes laced 'the fancy way'. This lacing method is tied and cinched where your natural waistline falls, rather than at the base of the corset. It is better for creating the tiny waist you want because focuses a little extra support and reinforcement at the waistline.

The inside is lined with a creamy, canvas material. A strip of fabric runs horizontally along each of the two, large panels that make up the corset. This is another way to reinforce the waistline. As long as you order a size up from your normal size you should get a beautiful, curvy, hourglass figure from wearing it.

Depending on your modesty level, it could be worn in public with a nice skirt or pair of jeans or you could just wear it for your partner. The entire garment, aside from the ribbon, is made of idozpolyurethane. It feels like satin on the outside and canvas on the inside. You should hand wash it and lie it flat to dry. Using a washer or dryer may melt the plastic boning and distort the shape. It's pretty expensive so you don't want to do that. For storage you can put it in a drawer or on a hanger because it has those little ribbons under the armpits so that it stays put.
Experience
My husband loves to see me in pink lingerie. It's pretty convenient since pink is my favorite color. I was very disappointed that this corset didn't fit me. Since I couldn't actually wear it, I can't speak for how the plastic boning holds up or how it adjusts to your shape over time.

Unfortunately, even when I lose enough weight (hey, I'm down 25lbs already!), I don't believe this would fit me just how I want it to. It's only 13" long and I have a long torso. I prefer my lingerie to cover my lower abdomen. Four pregnancies have stretched out the skin down there and the extra flap of skin makes me self conscious. I do plan to eventually get a tummy tuck (once I drop the extra weight), but I don't think I should have to get one for an item to fit me properly. I'm going to stick it in my drawer and hope that one day it fits me better. I can pull it out every now and then for motivation, I guess.

    It was very pretty, sorry that the sizing was off. I am a lover of all things pink as well, so I understand how disappointing it was.

    I HATE when beautiful corsets are short. I have a long torso too and I need some length so it doesn't look silly. Great review!
