Look, Ma, No Boobs!

This purple floral bustier and thong set is pretty cute, but that's about it. Both pieces are well made. Unfortunately, the thong does not fit and the bustier is not comfortable and not very flattering for an A cup chest. This would be best for women with a B-C cup. Other than that, the sizing information is pretty accurate.

extremely useful review
I liked the look of this purple floral bustier, especially since I have this bustier as well. While I like the look of this, at the same time I don’t really like the look it gives my body.

The bustier and G-string come packaged in just a simple plastic bag. Attached by safety pins to the bustier is a small bag containing the bra straps. Also attached is a tag with photos of a model wearing the set. This tag does not have any information on it. Unfortunately, for such a pretty and expensive piece, there is no hanger included. It does have the inside straps for it to be hung on a hanger, though. I use just a plain plastic hanger.

Inside of the bustier, there are tags displaying size information, as well as material and washing instructions. The material is 82% nylon and 18% spandex. The set should be hand-washed and hung up to drip dry. I do feel the thong can be washed in the washer on the gentle cycle with like colors. I would recommend using a mesh lingerie bag to wash it. The bustier would be wrecked if it was washed in the washer. So far, I have only had to spot clean mine with a little detergent on a cloth.

The bustier itself is very pretty. The cups and a small area underneath are done in a deep, shiny purple satin with black floral lace over it. The cups are underwire, which means this offers a good amount of support. The lace is a little rough to the touch, but feels about the same as lace usually does. Along the tops of the cups is some lace trim. It’s supposed to lay flat and have an edge of lace over the top edge of the bustier, but mine got flattened in the opposite direction. Simply ironing with a towel over the bustier should make this lay flat. Between the cups is a small, black satin bow. There are no ends to unravel, so mine is still in pretty good shape. The purple satin/lace cup area is not stretchy. Inside the top edge are four loops of elastic, which are used to hold the bra straps included with the set. These can help hold the bustier up and may offer more support.

Beneath the cups, the bustier is simply a flat, thin, stretchy material. It’s not shiny. It isn’t very smooth, but it’s not super rough either. It’s also just a little bit see through. The body of the bustier is made up of 5 strips of plastic boning, three in the front and two on the sides. The back only has the hook closure system, which goes all the way down it. At the very bottom are all of the garter straps. They are elastic with the typical garter closures and a slider to adjust the length.

I ordered the size medium, which has the following measurements when on the loosest setting: 16 inches in length down one side, 30 inches around over the bust, 26 inches around below it, 28 inches around the waist, and 34 inches around the hips. As I said before, this does stretch some. At the maximum stretching, each of those measurements can have about 4 inches added on. Tighter settings on the hook closure up the back will take up to and inch and a half off of the measurements for the largest setting.

The thong is pretty simple. There is a triangle of material that runs the length of it, rather than just a tiny piece in the front. It offers a small amount of coverage. The material is also the purple satin with lace over it. The thong is not stretchy at all. Trying to stretch it actually makes it feel like too much pulling on it will rip it. It measures 30 inches around, which is actually 5 inches smaller than where it would sit on me. Because of this, I can’t really comment on how comfortable it is or anything. Since this doesn’t fit, I opted instead to wear some lacy black boyshorts.

Experience
And on to the actual fit of this on me. I am able to wear it at the tightest setting, but only if someone does the back of it up for me. I can get it on at the medium setting by myself, by doing it up with the back in front and turning it around. At this setting, my chest is not held very well. It’s actually got some space underneath my bust where it’s not tight enough. This means my breasts mostly fall flat because nothing is pushing them up. At the tightest setting, I only have a little bit more of a push. Looking at myself in this is a little saddening, as I am completely flat chested.

The bottom of this falls about 2 1/2 inches below my belly button. I did need to adjust the side and back garter straps to get them to reach my stockings, but the front ones were actually right where they needed to be by default. The longest these go is about 4 inches. They have some stretch, so they can go a little lower if needed. If you rely heavily on the garters stretching, you may rip your stockings. The garters are not removable, unless you cut them off.

As far as slimming goes, this bustier doesn’t do much. Sitting down causes my belly to flab out a little, and the plastic boning does nothing to stop this. It actually makes it a little uncomfortable because of how it has to curve. I can bend and move around in this very easily. The only area I noticed this actually “slims” me is on my sides next to my hip bones. It just pushes them in the front so I have this big belly pooch hanging out. That in turn makes my hip bones look a little creepy.

This set is somewhat comfortable. The body is comfortable to lay around in or stand in, but the top edge in the back is uncomfortable to me. It doesn’t stretch, so it squeezes my back and shoulder blades in. It doesn’t give me back boobs or anything, it just doesn’t feel good.

My measurements are: 32A bra size, 27 inch waist, and 35.5 inch hips at their widest. I am also 5’8” tall. Coquette lists the measurements for size medium as: dress size 8-10, B cup, bust 36-38 inches, waist 26-30 inches, and hips 38-40. I’d have to say this is pretty accurate, except for the underwire. This measures perfectly with a size 34 C bra I have. I’d say B and C cups are the best fit.

As I said before, this set can be hand washed and left to drip dry. The thong can be washed on the gentle cycle of a washing machine if it is in a mesh lingerie bag. I hang mine up in my closet on a plain plastic hanger and keep the thong in my underwear drawer.

While this set looks awesome, it just doesn’t fit that great. For smaller chests, it offers no support or push up. Breasts larger than a C cup will be spilling out of the cups. The plastic boning does nothing as far as slimming goes and isn’t terribly too comfortable.
Follow-up commentary
I'm still not the biggest fan of this piece. I'd love it more if it was a bit more flattering with my chest. My hopes were that it might push everything upwards as the name "bustier" insinuates to me.
