Good Looks, Great Price, Poor Quality.

Tesa’s Classic Corset by Escante is an excellent price and attractive when worn. Unfortunately, the quality just isn't good. The stitching is really weak. One of the boning pieces popped out of its cover already and the cover is detaching itself from the corset. It's easy to fix these quality issues up if you know how to sew, but honestly; who really wants to HAVE to do that? This corset is definitely a "fixer-upper".

extremely useful review
Tesa’s Classic Corset by Escante is available in sizes 32-38 and in the colours grey, white, red, or black. I purchased the size 38 in grey. I purchased the corset to wear beneath a shrug or similar item while out in public. The corset can also be used for bedroom wear.

The outfit arrived in a clear plastic bag. There were no text or photos on the bag. There were two cardboard tags attached to the corset. The one tag had a photo of a model wearing the corset and stated the product and company name. The other tag had instructions with photos on how to put the corset on. The packaging is not ideal for storage. You could hang the corset up in your closet or keep it in a drawer.

The corset does not come with a panty. It’s 100% polyester. The material does not have any stretch to it but the width can be adjusted with the lacing down the centre back. I was surprised when I first received this corset because I had assumed that the corset was thicker with structure to it. The material is actually really flimsy and thin.

I’ve taken a few measurements of the corset laying flat. The lacing down the centre back was done up the way it had arrived. There was a 4 inch wide gap between the lacing area. Again, this can be loosened or tightened for width adjustments. If you need any additional measurements, please send me a message and I will get them for you.

Chest (armpit to armpit): 18 ¾ inches
Waist: 15 ¾ inches
Bottom of corset: 18 inches
Length of corset (down side): 12 ½ inches
Length of corset (down centre back): 11 ¾ inches

There are 9 plastic boning pieces to the corset: 6 in the front, 2 in the back, and 1 on one of the sides. The reason there is only one side with boning is because the other side of the corset has a zipper closure to it. The zipper is black metal. There are no loops of fabric to attach shoulder or garter straps to.

There is no pattern or fancy design to the corset. It is a solid grey colour with a bit of shine to it. The lacing down the centre back is done with a black cord that looks like a shoestring. The strips of fabric that hold the black eyelets for the lacing are also black in colour.

There is no padding or underwire in the chest area of the corset. The material is really thin so you’ll need to wear a pair of pasties or similar item if you are concerned about nipple outline. There is boning down the chest but you’d have to make sure your nipples sat right beneath the boning and stayed there to avoid outline, which is nearly impossible.

So before I tried the corset on, I assumed that I would dislike the way it looked on me. I had expected a sturdier material to the corset and I couldn’t imagine this looking half decent on my body. To my surprise, I actually like it!

Putting the corset on was easy to do by myself. I just loosened the lacing down the back and then put the corset up to my body to see if I could zip the side zipper up. If I were not able to, I would loosen it a bit more and repeat. I had to loosen the lacing almost completely, but was able to fit into the corset with the included lacing. If you need more width, just use a longer piece of lace/ribbon.

I’m 5’6 in height and my chest is a C cup. My chest fit into the corset well and like I had assumed, nipple outline was definitely apparent. The length of the piece was good for me at the front. It covered my belly and only showed a bit of hips. The back of the corset is shorter and exposes my lower back but most corsets do. There is no modesty panel beneath the lacing so if you have to loosen the lacing like I did you’ll have quite a bit of skin exposed.

When I took the corset off, I measured the gap between the lacing. The gap was just less than 5 inches wide. After taking the corset off, I also noticed something else. There was a silver thing sticking out of the corset. What happened was one of the boning pieces popped out from the material it was supposed to be sewn beneath.

Experience
...continued


I also noticed that this same boning cover (on the inside of the corset) is starting to detach itself from the corset. Now, this isn’t a huge problem for me since I can easily sew it back up but not everyone sews and not everyone is going to want to sew an item that they just bought brand new. The quality of this piece is really not that great.

The corset is really comfortable to wear. The material is soft and non-irritating to the skin. The care tag states that the corset should be hand washed separately in cold water with a mild soap. The corset should be drip dried in the shade. Do not wring, twist, iron, dry clean, or use chlorine on the corset.

Overall, I think the corset looks nice when worn and it’s a great price, but the quality has me deducting two stars from the rating. If you don’t mind doing a bit of sewing to the piece when you receive it, you’ll probably enjoy the corset. Like I had said, I don’t mind doing a few stitches so I’ll probably get the white coloured corset next. If you’re looking for a flawless, quality corset- this is not it.

    Thanks for the review and helpful photos. This is super cute, but it looks like it's pretty cheaply made.
