Classy and Sexy Corset!

This corset is gorgeous and well-made. The material has very little give, but is still comfortable and fits well due to the lacing options. The only real con was that when the side lacing was undone it made the stomach portion stick out odd due to my "mommy tummy". Despite that, I love this corset and it is definitely one of my favorites.

extremely useful review
This corset is a lovely piece, and available in sizes 32-44. This review is for size 42. The corset came on a black plastic hanger surrounded by clear plastic, and comes with a thong and adjustable and detachable garter straps.

The craftsmanship is excellent, there were no frayed edges or sewing mistakes. The thong and corset are 100% polyester. The corset is a pink satiny material on the outside with black lace overlay, the inside is black. There is no stretch to the material of the corset, and it is much thicker than the thong. The thong does have a very stretchy elastic waistband and elastic along the edges of the material, which allow it to stretch. The thong is a simple black one with a panty liner.

The corset has 5 sections of plastic boning per side, and coupled with the stiff material the boning works very well and doesn't bend like plastic boning will in stretchy corsets.There are 19 hook and eye closures down the center in front, and the back has 11 eyelets that lace up with 2 black ribbons. There is also lacing on the sides, with 5 eyelets and the same black ribbon.
There is a lace border along the top and bottom of the corset, but there is a difference in the amount of lace. The top has the lace done so about an inch goes down over the corset, with another inch that goes upwards above the corset. The bottom has an inch of lace that goes below the corset, with only about 1/4in. that goes over the material of the corset.

The garter straps are detachable and adjustable, and are your typical garter straps with a little extra ribbon extending past the part that attaches to your hose on each side. The loops to attach the straps are on the inside of the corset so you cannot see them if you wear it without the garters. Since they are on the inside, you don't need to worry about the hook for the strap getting stuck in the lace. The bust area has no padding or underwire, but the material is put together to have a bit of an extra curve over the breasts. The material is very solid so you can't see through it, and the material is rigid enough that you can wear is without a bra and not have to worry about the outline of your nipples being visible. Unfortunately there are no shoulder straps or loops to attach any to, but I imagine they could easily be added on.

The washing instructions on the corset tag say to dry clean only. I wouldn't wash this in a machine, the lace would easily get ruined. I have washed mine by hand and hung it dry with no problems. Tag instructions for the thong say to hand wash in cold water and line dry.

Dream Girl's Sizing for 1X/2X:Cup Size D-DD, Breast 40-48, Waist 36-40, Hips 42-48, Weight 165 - 225
My Measurements: 36 DDD bra, 38in. waist, 46in. hip.
The corset fits very well, but I have to have it unlaced almost as much as it can go in the back to accommodate my bust. This required a bit of experimenting with how many eyelets each of the two ribbons in the back lacing could go through to make it fit properly.

Corset measurements along one side:


Corset Measurements:
I did not add the lace that goes past the edges of the corset to the measurement, as it will not always lay flat when worn. Also, since the laces in back can open up, I included the lengths of just one side of the corset, then the total length of top and bottom are with the laces tied to their tightest. The back and side laces can be opened to add several inches of width.
Height:
Back Laces - 12in.
Along hook closures - 15in.
At the peak over the breasts - 16in.
Side Laces - 5in.
Width:
Top from hook closure to back laces - 18 1/2in.
Total top - 37in.
Bottom from hook closure to side laces - 9in.
Bottom from side laces to back laces - 8 1/2in.
Side laces - 1 1/4in.
Bottom from hook closure to back laces - 17 1/2in.
Total Bottom - 35in.

Experience
I really love this piece, it is gorgeous and makes me feel both classy sexy due to the pattern and color. I love that you can wear it out in public, and like to wear mine under a shrug or open blazer. I was happily surprised that the lace is very soft, and comfortable under the arms even when worn for long periods of time. I am extremely sensitive to having lace bother me under the arms and had no irritation from this, even after hours of wear.

I only had one small gripe with this piece. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 due to an issue with the side laces. I had been looking forward to being able to have the sides open some to show a bit of my hips, but unfortunately I could not. When I would have them open the stiffness of the material would cause the lower front part to stick out past my body quite a bit at the bottom. I am a mother and I do have a bit of a "mommy bump" still after having my child, and with the side laces undone it would cause the bottom of the corset to go straight out from my bump down, instead of hugging my body and opening more at the hips.
