I'm Feeling A Bit.. Victorian?

Maybe Victorian isn't the right word, but that's what I think of when I see this. It's constructed solidly, is comfortable to wear, and should fit pretty much everybody in the size guidelines. The back doesn't have a privacy panel and the straps dig in if you choose to wear them, but it's still a well built and sexy piece of lingerie.

extremely useful review
This piece came with a hanger in a plastic bag. There wasn't much else for packaging, but there was a small tag attached with a safety pin, a small bag with the straps, and a small bag with the garters.

This comes in a variety of sizes, but I got a small. To Coquette that means I should be a size 4-6, with a B cup, a 34-36" bust, 26-28" waist, and 36-38" hips. Personally I'm about 5'2, I weigh about 120, around my bust measures 32" and underneath measures about 28 1/2". I've got about a 29" waist and measure about 34" around the top of my hips and about 37" around my butt, and wear a good solid B cup. This fit me with plenty of room to spare, even with some of my measurements falling outside the upper range.

You're getting just the corset here, along with the straps. The corset itself is comprise of 14 pieces of covered plastic boning with 16 individual panels. The boning is all covered in a soft black fabric, and the panels on the outside are all a deep red with a black floral lace over them. The inside of the corset feels a lot like a sturdy canvas; not luxuriously soft but still feels nice against the skin.

The top has raised rounded edges to cover the breasts and the bottom has a sort of scalloped design with little slots for the garter straps to clip in at each of the bottom most points. Shortly after the 4th piece of boning from the front on the top lies the slot for the front portion of the bra strap to attach. It adjusts in the back with a soft black shoelace-esque ribbon, pulling in from the top and bottom and meeting in the middle to be tied in a bow. This leaves fastening to the front with a 13 1/2" long strip of 14 hook and eyes. There's a small black privacy panel on the eye side that covers up any skin that might have shown through with movement or tightening.

The peak height in the front from the top of the cups to the bottom of the lowest point is 17 1/2", and in the back along the lacing is just about 15". I'm about 16 1/2" from the top of my hip bone to the top of my shoulder and on me it falls about 3" below the top of my hips. It sits up high enough to be out of the way during sex, but low enough that my midriff doesn't peek out unless I want it to.

All of the included straps are adjustable. As mentioned earlier the bra straps are a little uncomfortable. My biggest issue with them is that they sit pretty much at the armpit. Then they start to rub, and then they get uncomfortable. Had the strap placement been at the next piece of boning forward, it would be a lot more comfortable to wear and keep your boobs from popping out. On me with a solid B cup there was definitely room for more, but even if I bent over and the top opened up some you couldn't see my nipples. Based on the construction of the slot, it looks movable so I'm going to try and fix where it's at. You can also wear a plain black bra if you'd like. You probably won't need the support, but it'd help keep you covered and create some extra cleavage.

There are a total of 6 slots for your garter straps. That means that you can wear two in the very front, one on each side, and two in the very back. If you have extra straps you can interchange as you please. These particular straps are a new design to me in some aspects. They have the same basic fabric used as others that I've seen; smooth, solid black, and stretchy. The clip itself is made of metal that I've seen before, but the little tab that goes into it is thinner than a lot of other tabs. The newest feature to me is the way it adjusts. Rather than being like a bra strap it's like those old belts where you'd lift one end up, pull through what you wanted, and then push the metal piece back down to hold it in place. They adjust from a total of 6 1/2" long to a total of about 11" long and do a pretty decent job at holding up stockings.



Above is a shot of the garter straps, and here's me in the corset with and without a bra:

Experience
(Continued from above) There's a small tag at the top of the corset that also helps you figure out at a quick glance which way it goes. It doesn't scratch, and it tells you what it is and how to clean it. It is 100% polyester (mind yourself around open flames) and should be hand washed in cold water. You can hang it up with the hanging straps in your closet, or fold it lengthwise and keep it in a drawer.

*****

This gorgeous corset from Coquette can be worn both in and out of the bedroom, with straps or without, or with garters even. Pair it with your favorite pair of jeans for a night out on the town, or with your favorite stockings for a sexy night in. I definitely plan to.

I've been drooling over this corset since I first saw it and as soon as it was available I jumped at the chance to add it to my collection. It's just unbelievably gorgeous and sexy and it's comfortable too. Not so much for slouching as the boning does its best to correct your posture, but that's not really a bad thing. I've worn it for a few hours and been left with what looks like the marks when you sleep in the same spot on the sheets just from how it was adjusted, but I wasn't uncomfortable at all. The only things I'm not so hot on are the placement of the straps on the top and the fact that it doesn't quite sit how I'd like it to to cover everything on the top. It really does look like I should be able to move that slot on my own, and that would solve both problems.

I want to give it 4 1/2 stars. The strap location and openness bug me a little bit. But since it can easily be worn without the straps and even with smaller breasts nothing gets exposed when it opens, I can't knock it too much and I'll bump it on up to 5 stars.
