Deep Purple

The Floral Bustier is a beautiful deep purple color, well-constructed, and made from quality material. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it as it is more attractive and truer fitting than more expensive bustiers I've bought from retail stores.

extremely useful review
The Floral Bustier by Coquette arrived wrapped in tissue paper on a black satin lingerie hanger with a safety pinned tag showing the bustier on a model. I immediately loved it. I saved it to wear for my husband after not seeing him for two months, and attempted to put it on while he was in the shower, but I quickly learned that this is not a bustier that one can easily get into alone, even after the initial adjustments to the lacing. After I had to (slightly embarrassingly) ask him for help to get into it, the bustier fit great. I ordered a medium.
Here are the measurements Coquette offers:
Medium
8 - 10
Cup B
Bust 36 - 38
Waist 26 - 30
Hips 38 - 40

Here are my measurements:
Bra Size: 34B
Waist: 28"
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 170
Shirt Size: Small
Pant Size: 8

However, I do want to caution that there is not a lot of lacing left over (approximately 7" on each side), while still showing approximately 5" of skin at the bottom and 8" of skin at the top. The lacing goes through silver metal rivets of which there are 10 on each side. The lacing is all one piece of lacing (similar to nice shoelaces) tied together at the top, however you adjust the lacing from the center. It is adjustable from both the top and back, and I ended up having my husband tie the two ends into a knot in the middle for me. You could easily replace it with a longer ribbon or lace however if needed (although obviously not preferable for to expensive a piece of lingerie).



Once you have the laces adjusted correctly, you can just leave them that way by using the hook and eye closures approximately 2" to the left of the laces. While the closures are nice, I wish they were in the front or farther over to the side to make it easier to put it on by myself. However because they are hidden in the back, it does mean you could wear it in public with a sweater and no one would see them.

The entire bustier is made of this beautiful deep purple satin fabric with a black floral lace overlay in the front two panels and cups and a small black bow between the cups. While not removable, the bow could be pretty easily removed if you found it objectionable. The inside is lined with smooth black fabric that I didn't find itchy or overly binding. The cups are lined with a slightly foamy feeling black fabric that ensures "sne" will never be problem, with out taking up very much of the cup space. As I put earlier, I have a B cup, which often means that lingerie ends up kind of gaping in the bust area. I didn't really have that problem with this bustier (see picture below), however there would definitely be room for a C cup as well.



The bustier fit well, without being so confining that I couldn't wait to get out of it, however it did seem more corset-like than most bustiers I have purchased. I thought it was a really nice touch that the bustier not only came with detachable garters, but also with detachable straps.

The Floral Bustier does not come with extensive care directions. The small tag lists that the bustier is 100% acetate, made in China, and requires hand-washing and lying it flat to dry.
Experience
Overall, I would recommend purchasing the Floral Bustier, especially if you can catch one of EF's many sales. It is good quality, fairly comfortable to wear, a beautiful color, and goes easily from the bedroom to public places as a sexy shirt, without being too revealing.
Follow-up commentary
This is a really great, beautiful corset, that I am still very happy with. It's held up well, and the color is just as pretty and deep as when I first got it.
