Bettie Page, look out!

This piece is a really easy way to achieve that sexy, retro look that so many people are into! It's a vampy black chemise, but the addition of the pink bows and lace make it girly enough for a variety of tastes.

The Retro mesh cupless chemise by Coquette is a steal at this price! This sexy but girly baby doll chemise is made of stretchy nylon/spandex, so it can hug the curves of any body type without being restricting. I recommend pairing it with (my personal favorites) black Cuban heel thigh highs and heels to complete the sexy, retro look. You could add panties or a thong, too, or skip them all together and tease him that much more!

This sultry chemise features pink accents in the form of front seam piping, lace trimmed cup wires, and ribbon accented straps. The large pink bows between the cups and above the front garters are the perfect old-glam touch! I absolutely love the black ruffle at the hem - it adds a flattering element to the garment, and matches the black ruffles on the cup wires.

Upon close inspection of the garment, I found it to be very well constructed. The decorative elements are all very well stitched, and the seams are all securely sewn and cased. The only issue I noticed was that on the large pink bow between the cups, the ribbon was not properly finished on the ends (this was not the case on the other two large bows). I hand-washed it (as directed) and the ribbon ends held up well, but I can't help but wonder if this bow will show early signs of wear due to being unfinished.

Overall, this piece is a steal for the price and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes the old-glam look. Meet him at the door in this with a martini in hand, and you'll have him hooked!

The measurements of this garment in size medium are as follows:

Bust- taken at bra band height (keep in mind that when measuring yourself you should measure around your ribs underneath your breasts, because your breasts will not be held inside the garment.
unstretched: 27"
stretched: 43"

Waist-
unstretched: 28"
stretched: 42"

Hip- taken at bottom seam of garment.
unstretched: 37"
stretched: 56"
Follow-up commentary
This sexy chemise still fits like a glove. It's held up well to washing, wearing, and "rough" use. A good buy!

    I almost got this product but wasn't sure how comfortable the cupless top would be on my ribs, or if it would poke me anywhere. The look is very cute, and very retro, and I give a thumbs up to your cuban thigh-highs! Coquette's sizes seem to be a hit or miss. Thanks for your review!

    TacoODoom-- While this chemise was pretty comfortable, I don't think I'd recommend wearing it under a dress. The embellishments don't lie flat, so you wouldn't get a smooth look.

    Hannah Savage-- I didn't have any problems with the underwires poking me or being ill-fitting, but I wear underwire bras all the time... if you're used to them, you should be fine.
