Chemise and panty set by Cottelli

Hello, kitty.

Whether it be reality TV or eating Nutella from the jar with a spoon, we all occasionally really like things that might not exactly be all that elegant. I have to admit that even though this is a whole lotta leopard print mixed with pink ribbons and bows, I like it. (But not as much as I like eating Nutella with a spoon.)
Published:
Pros:
Super comfy, doesn't wrinkle, camouflages stomach or hip insecurities
Cons:
Um, it's leopard print with a pink ribbon trim.

extremely useful review
Cotelli is a new brand to the EdenFantasys site, so I couldn’t resist checking out their stuff. Their official website isn't in English (but does have a translation option), and features a wide selection of lingerie for men and women, including plenty of plus sizes, some novelty-type silly lingerie and a selection of bath and body products.

According to their size chart, their sizes seem to run a bit larger than most American brands. Large should fit a 98-106 cm (38-42”) bust, 80-89 cm (30-35”) waist, and 104-111 cm (40-43”) hips. The XL should fit 107-118 cm (42-46”) bust, 90-100 cm waist (35-39” ), and 112-122 cm (44-48”) hips. I originally ordered XL, but after lookin up the size chart, realized I’d probably be better off with the Large, since I’m 38D, 32” waist, 39” hips. I submitted a support ticket to change my order, but it still shipped the next day with no reply to the ticket, so XL it is anyway! I’m actually really thankful for that, because I ended up loving the fit of the XL!

This is a two piece set made up of the chemise and a g-string. Yes, it’s leopard print and also has pink ribbons. Feel free to question my level of taste, but I was in the mood for something comfy to hang out in that wasn’t see-through, and this fit the bill.


(In the package. Sorry for the photo quality, having to use my phone's camera since I'm still having memory card issues.)

The set comes packaged in a sort of hard plastic envelope with a paper insert with pictures of the garments. There’s a little tab to reseal the package, and the plastic is quite sturdy, so you could use this to store the set if you wanted. There was an amusing paper insert with what I’m guessing is the same paragraph printed in 9 different languages, that reads “Please always wear a brief trying one of our dessous as for obvious only impeccable goods can be returned. Thank you for your kind understanding.” Hmmm.... okay then?

The chemise is made of 70% polyester, 20% polyamid (basically the same as nylon, from what I can figure out) and 10% spandex, and according to the care tag it should be.. well, I can't quite figure it out. The only instruction it gives is "Dark colors to be washed separately." Then it has those symbols that I never know the meaning of (get a manicure, avoid hipsters, avoid toasters and railroad crossings. I think. Maybe not.)



I'll probably stick to hand washing this, although I did toss the g-string in with my other delicate laundry, and it made it out just fine, other than the string part wrapping itself around a shirt pretty impressively. You may want to stick it in a lingerie bag first to keep it from attacking your other clothes like a giant squid.

The fabric is super soft and stretchy, and very comfortable to wear. The skirt has a bit of an a-line flare to it, so this should fit those who are pear-shaped pretty well. I’m the total opposite, being way bigger on top, but I like that this is flowy instead of skintight and clingy. The fabric stretches in all directions, and doesn’t become sheer when stretched. It’s very soft and smooth, and feels great against the skin, I wish I had sheets or a pillow case made from this!

The bust area of the chemise doesn’t have underwire or padding or anything fancy, just seams sewn to kind of mark where the boobs go. They offer a tiny bit of support, but not much. The straps are adjustable, just like bra straps. Pink ribbon and black lace embellish the set, maybe a little too much for some people’s taste. The lace is not the softest I’ve ever felt, but I didn’t find it irritating. If you totally hate the pink ribbon, you’re probably out of luck because it doesn’t look like you could remove it without wrecking the chemise a bit.

The low v-cut of the neckline means that my boobs pop out of this constantly. Not a big deal, since you’ll probably only be wearing this around people who’d be seeing them anyway.

One thing I love is that this doesn’t seem to wrinkle at all. I slept in it and then wore it all the next morning, and it still looked as fresh as when I first took it out of the package.
Experience
(continued)

The accompanying g-string is a perfect match, which isn’t necessarily a good thing, since that’s a lot of decorative elements to cram into such a small space. I think it would have been better if they’d left the ribbon off, or just done a tiny pink bow instead of the big decorative one. I snipped the pink bow off immediately, but the pink ribbon X would be a little harder to remove. It’s a pretty decent g-string, I wore it all day without going nuts and wanting to rip it off. There’s no crotch liner, but the fabric does breathe well. What I found funny is that there is a care tag attached to one of the elastic bands that sit at your hips, which I can only guess is meant to be removed because of its location. (I took a photo of it before cutting it off, but my phone seems to have eaten it. Who wants to buy me a new camera?)

The chemise measures about 31” long from the top of the shoulder down, or about 24” long from the top seam of the back down to the hem. I love how it fits me, and it would probably comfortably fit up to about a size 14, with the bust being best on a C cup or really perky D's. I was actually surprised that the g-string fit me almost perfectly, since I'm quite a bit smaller on bottom, so panties usually run large. It does have a lot of stretch, though, so it will most likely work if you wear Large or XL panties in general.

This set is currently priced at $54.99, which seems like a lot since most of the other chemise & thong sets here run in the $30-$40 range. I received this as a buyout assignment, which knocked it down to around $39, which felt much more reasonable. If you want a less expensive alternative, I recommend Coquette’s Pinstripe chemise and thong set, which is under $40 and so far has been my absolute favorite.

I'm giving this set 5 stars. It isn't my favorite thing I've ever worn, and a slightly more toned down color scheme would be nice, but I really can't find any faults with it and it's definitely one I'll actually wear from time to time.
