It's the most wonderful time of the year!

This has a very pretty cut and print, but if you need a lot of cinching, you may want something that covers better.

Pros:
Sexy and a cut we really like.

It created a crease on her back(may not apply to all).

useful review
If you want a sultry Victorian look, for a price that's fractions of what a "real" corset would cost, look no further. This over-bust corset seemed terrific and sexy and it looks just as it does on the product page. You will however have to deal with a number of "variables" .

Our Corset arrived wrapped in paper and rolled up, EF does a great job getting things to us quickly and in good condition, and this was no different. We have read other reviews that state this comes on a padded hanger, but we didn't see one. The optional shoulder straps(2) and garter belts(6)are attached in zip-lock bags.

The true purpose of a corset is waist cinching, this product does accomplish that with a couple of caveats. First the plastic boning will only provide mild to moderate support in the waist, second; the cups will only boost the breast if they are close to the top. The beast may tend to be pushed downward depending on where they fall in the corset. That being said sizing is very important to get the correct fit and look.

We ordered a medium despite the Cup disparity, we typically order medium from Coquette

My size is 34 D with a size 6. I weigh 140 and am 5'8". The measurement at my hips are 40" which places us in the small/med for size, but in the XL for cup size. Figuring the breast were not at issue in a cupless corset we went with a medium.

Design

There are several different styles of corsets, we have some experience with cup-less corsets and under-bust corsets. This was our first experience with a traditional over-bust corset. The pattern is a lovely red lace floral print(very Victorian looking)with a shiny red polyester panty. There are 14 bones making up 16 panels.

The lacing ties in the middle after the corsets been tightened from the top and bottom. There's 4 eyelets for garter belt positioning if you choose to wear them. There's two in the front and another two in the rear. The garter belts are adjustable via buckle which is nice little plus. The belts attach at the points between scalloped cut outs.

We thought the cut and color looked really nice on her, and the fabric inside was similar to the inside of a suit jacket. It was very binding as expected but did not uncomfortable.

The garter belts were a disappointment as well, we were excited that they were the buckle type but they did not fit properly(too long) and one of them were broken.
Experience
Well it had been a while since we had a corset to wear or review, it didn't seem like such a task last time. After about 15 minutes of figuring this one out and getting the garters right we were both in a less sexy mood. The corset had to be unbuttoned put on as opposed to slipping it up over the hips. That's not to say it was too small. The sizing was actually right on, the breast sat well and were pushed up slightly and there was plenty of cinching in the waist. There was however a gap in the back where it's laced up. That leads me to believe we could of used a larger size but that may have fit incorrectly elsewhere. Lacing was a little difficult and confusing for him, we eventually figured it out. We did not care for the way the back came together, add to it a lack of a panel(her back skin tended to crease), and we didn't care for the way this looked from the back at all. The lacing in the back was thin and flimsy and was difficult to tie.
Follow-up commentary
We like this a lot but we haven't had much time to use it. We look forward to using it again, it's very sturdy and sexy. We still recommend this to others.

    Could you provide more measurements of the cincher when it's tied to tightest fit (bust, waist, hip)? It would be very helpful information to others when determining sizing. Thank you.
