Flimsy, But Still Looks Great!

This set is a perfect way to inexpensively surprise your other half, but not a beautiful piece I'll bring out every night (or for special occasions).

My favorite part of this lingerie set is definitely the way it looks. It serves its intended purpose, which is to look sexy. However, the set isn't incredible quality. It isn't very expensive, so I wasn't expecting anything extravagant.

Aside from that, the material is very comfortable. It isn't itchy or anything like that. The lace work is very pretty, and isn't tacky looking (or itchy either!). The bra has underwire, but no padding. It is probably the poorest made item of the three. The thong is really nice looking and so is the garter belt. The straps that connect the stockings to the garter belt aren't removable, but they are easy to use.

My one complaint would be sizing. I'm somewhere around a size 12 with a DD bra size, and I ordered the large. I was fairly certain before receiving the set that my boobs wouldn't fit, and I was right. The cups are super, super small. (That being said, my boyfriend thinks it's 'debatable' that they don't fit.) Since I had figured this would happen, it didn't make me upset, because the set wasn't something that I intended to wear out on the town. The part that did make me upset was the thong. It definitely isn't a large. It's super small as well, and the elastic in the waistband is not forgiving. I found it very odd as well that the garter belt fit like a dream (because unlike the panties, they are a large with very nice elastic). Because of this, I like to wear the set with other panties.

Overall, there are some inconsistencies with the product, most notably in the sizing. However, it serves its intended purpose. It's perfect for an inexpensive way to dress up for your partner for a lovely evening.
Experience
While I wasn't completely thrilled with the product and a little hesitant about wearing it due to the sizing inconsistencies, my boyfriend loved it. He didn't care that it didn't fit properly-- he cared that it was pretty lingerie and I was wearing it. So I guess that's the moral of the story: this is pretty-looking lingerie and most likely, your partner will love it (even if it's not your favorite).
Follow-up commentary
This set was okay, but I haven't worn it since the review period. Since then, I've tried other pieces that fit better, looked better, and were more comfortable, and I've been using those instead. This isn't a bad set for the price, and if you're smaller than a DD, then this may fit you perfectly, but it isn't the set of choice for me.

    With Coquettes higher end products their panties are of equal quality. If you want good panties I'd say anything about about $35 will have them. It sucks...but in my experience it has been pretty true so far. You are not that much larger than me. I'm a D ~size 10 and own a ton of Coquette stuff. I love their designs! If you ever want a recommendation, let me know.

    We have a set that looks exactly like this except it has a skirt instead of a thong. The cups are tiny on that set too. I wish I had the problem of being too large for my tops - I'm always just too small though. Gah. Silly lingerie. Good review.

    I love the look of this, I'm smaller...so maybe it would still work. Debating...

    Thanks for the review.

    Looking at it I sort of wonder if it's supposed to be tiny. One of those things that you're meant to fall out of. My biggest problem is the placing of the straps for the bra, since anytime I have a bra with straps like that, I want to cut the straps off. So uncomfortable! But the garter belt is so cute...
