I feel like a sexy leopardess...from the waist down

If you love leopard print and garters, then I would absolutely look to buy this set. However, the bra probably will not work on smaller busts. Even so, I think this set is worth it just for the garter alone!

Materials, Design, & Craftsmanship
Bra

The bra is made of 80% nylon and 20% spandex. Its cups had two distinct areas. The top half is just the shell of the cup, and the bottom half is a thickly padded area. There is a firm and not-too-flexible underwire below the padding. The bra's shell portion is lined with a spongy black material which is thicker than a lightly padded bra. While the push-up portion of the cups is made of the same material, it is much thicker in this area. The push-up portion takes up a solid 2/3 of the cups and is uniformly distributed across this bottom portion. That is, the bra pushes the breasts straight up as opposed to pushing them in and up. The leopard material is a bit silkier than the black material. It spans across both cups and folds over the top of them. It is a distinct layer of fabric that can be pulled away from the cup. The band and the area between the cups are made of a shiny black fabric. Finally, the straps are similar to a standard bra strap save for the fact that they have a frilly mesh fabric sewn on the outside.

As for the finer details, the bra has adjustable straps made possible by black plastic hardware. It fastens with a hook-and-eye closure in the back. The closure has three different adjustment options with two hooks in each column. The bra is held together with black stitching. It is mostly a standard stitch, but the band does have a zig-zag stitch along the top and bottom, giving it a ruched look when it's not being stretched out. The cups each have a black seam going down the middle. The seam does not seem to serve anything but an aesthetic purpose There is also a shiny black bow between the cups. The bow is securely sewn on and stays straight when worn.

I believe the craftsmanship and design of the bra is good and not so good, respectively. There is not a stitch out of place and I do not think there will be any with proper care. The plastic hardware and metal closures are sturdy and up for regular use. However, the actual design leaves something to be desired. The underwire is rather straight and doesn't mold well to the body. This creates a flat cup that may not flatter smaller busts, as I will explain in the fit section. Also, the seam tends to show through clothing. Overall, though, the bra appears to be objectively well-made.

Garter belt

Unfortunately, the garter belt did not come with a tag listing its materials. I assume that the materials and material ratio is similar or identical to that of the bra. The front and back portion are made with the same leopard fabric that is on the bra, and the side portions are made of the shiny black material found on the bra band. The leopard bits are lined with a tan fabric while the black material stands alone. Both fabrics are comfortable against the skin.

For the design, there is elastic sewn into all edges of the belt, and all the stitching is done in a zig-zag fashion. The belt's closure is identical to the bra's hook-and-eye set-up, also with three settings for a more personalized fit. The attached garters feature the same black plastic hardware for easy adjusting. Much like the bra, the garter belt is impeccably crafted and should last through many uses if properly cared for.

G-string

The g-string also lacks a proper tag, but is made from material seen in the previous two pieces. The outer layer is the leopard fabric, and the inside is lined with the same tan fabric from the garter belt. The leopard/tan fabric continue all the way to the other side, meaning that you'll have some material wedged between you. While the g-string is lined, there is no crotch liner of any sort. The waistband contain a stretchy but relaxed elastic. The elastic is covered with a silky black fabric. The g-string is stitched well and shows no defects or signs of poor quality.

Fit

Bra

The bra did manage to fit well in the band, but the cups are so awkwardly formed that I can't see them fitting many women. On my smaller bust, they covered me almost completely, but not in a flattering way. The cups are stiff and almost flat. They have little give and don't conform to your body. I suppose they might be more easily persuaded by larger breasts, but I don't think your average B-cup will have much luck in doing so with the size small.

The bra and its seams are very conspicuous under normal clothing, so you could need a thicker top the conceal it. I don't think it's very wearable outside of the bedroom (or inside, but I clearly have a chip on my shoulder with the piece).

Garter belt

Onto the good parts! The garter belt is comfortable and well-made. It fits my 36" hips well and would easily stretch to fit slightly smaller or wider bodies. It can also be worn higher or lower than as seen on the model. It can easily be concealed under thicker form-fitting skirts or dresses, or under thinner and looser garments. It does a nice job of holding up both thinner and thicker thigh-highs.

G-string

The g-string is pretty typical as far as these sets go. It did fit around my hips without cutting in too noticeably, but softer bodies with wider hips may find that it digs in a bit. Personally, I don't like having a 1/2" of material wedged between my backside, but it's not terribly uncomfortable.

All in all...

I adore the garter belt and am neutral on the g-string. Unfortunately, the bra is completely useless to me. Still, if you love leopard print and are looking for a nice bottom set, I would definitely look into this lingerie.
