Classy ... But Not For Me

I always expect one piece in a set to not fit properly. I was really hoping it would be the panties, as it is in most cases, rather than the bra. I think the placement of the straps is the reason it didn't fit. In hindsight, perhaps an L would have been better.... but then the panties wouldn't have fit.

I ordered this set from Coquette in an XL because I recently purchased a set from them in an L and it was juuuust too small. The accompanying panties weren't the right size, and my boobs almost spill out of the bra. This time, I went with the XL because I thought it would be perfect. Boy was I wrong.

This set, like all Coquette sets, comes on a black satin hanger with an attached cardboard tag detailing the product and showing the model in the outfit, all wrapped in plastic. The bra and the front panel of the panties are made of a soft velvety fabric. Both have little rhinestone button embellishments. The top of both pieces feature a bit of black satin, also soft to the touch. The inside of the bra is a soft cottony feeling fabric. The tag inside the bra says the size and instructions for care. By the way, you should hand wash and line dry this set. The bra strap closes with a typical three row hook & eye clasp. The straps of the bra are oddly located right at the end of the cups, which puts them sort of in the armpit area. The back part of the panties are lace. This is the only lace on the entire set.

This is definitely not a set you could wear under clothes. Under a corset, maybe, but definitely not under a t-shirt. The panties you could probably get away with wearing in a day-to-day context.

For reference, Coquette says their XL should fit: D cup 42 - 44 bust, 34-36 waist, 40-42 hip. I don't think the waist measurement matters since the panties aren't high-waisted.
My measurements are: D cup, 36 waist, 40 hips

A Large says it should fit a C cup, so you can see why I thought the XL would fit better.
Experience
Why it didn't work for me:

I think the placement of the straps is why the bra didn't work for me.
Even on the third and tightest closure, my boobs felt like they were listlessly sitting on a shelf. Seriously, this bra for me was like a weird not-quite-right shelf bra. Holding the bra up to my breasts, it seems like this should be a perfect fit but unfortunately.... it just didn't do anything at all for them. The middle piece doesn't sit against my chest and again, the placement of the straps doesn't help at all. I think if I could resew the placement of the straps, this bra might work for me.

The panties look really awesome, tho. Yay! I kind of expected one piece of the set to not fit, but I always anticipate it being the panties rather than the top. In this case, I'm a bit disappointed because I can't see these panties really looking good with anything else.

If I can manage to rearrange the placement of the straps, I will definitely post photos.

    So sorry the bra didn't fit. You know, every single Coquette babydoll, bustier, corset or top I've bought has had the straps sewed right under my blasted arm pits! I hate that, and they always do it. They're removable on those pieces though, so it's not as big a deal as with a bra. That bra just sounds like a nightmare and high-rise undies look funny on me. I better skip this set, but thanks for sharing!
