No! Just No!

This was a waste for me. It looks so hot on the model that it was disappointing to discover it was much too large for my frame. The lace makes me disappear and the mesh does nothing at all to flatter me.

extremely useful review
This is singularly the worst piece of lingerie I own. The lace pattern on the sides looks ridiculous on my small frame and it's a half-size too large at that. I swim in it.

The overall quality of the garment is up to par---no wonky stitching or things coming undone, but it just doesn't fit me very well at all. There is a lot of extra room at the bottom of the cups and so it makes my chest look kind of dumpy. The sides of the garment don't touch my body and it bunches up when I sit down. But, hey the straps are adjustable and that's always a plus!

I'm just under 100 lbs with a 32B-26-29 frame and I ordered the one size fits most. I think in order to pull this off, you need to be at least 5'6 (which I'm not) with a generous helping of curviness. A woman with hips and large breasts could pull this off a lot better than I ever could.

But, I think ultimately, that lace pattern isn't going to flatter a woman who isn't the model pictured in the product photos. It's incredibly wide and takes up a good portion of the garment so if you don't have a large frame, it just looks really silly. I look like a little girl that rummaged through mommy's closet playing dress-up.

It's also kind of itchy and not very soft to the touch, except for the cups. Those are polyester/spandex while the bodice is mesh and lace. It's the lace that's the itch-culprit here, not the mesh.

I just don't like it and I can't ever see me wearing it. I may donate it to a charity clothing store, though. Someone, somewhere should like it!

It should be handwashed and line dried without bleach. No irons or high heat should be applied. Use vinegar to lock in the black dye on the garment if you don't want the lace to turn a funky shade of charcoal.
Experience
This gets two stars for quality and for quality only.
Follow-up commentary
Trashed! I never wore it and I don't expect anyone else to wear it either. It's just not flattering and I couldn't even bring myself to try to pawn it off on someone else.

    ...maybe you don't need to be a model or a BBW to look good in this, but you aren't exactly a one-size gal with your measurements.
    Sorry this didn't work for you And it sucks that it's all itchy, that would be a deal breaker for me.

    Thanks for the review!

    @Tigerkate, actually I am a "one size fits all" gal with my measurements. Most of this kind of stuff runs really small, this however does not.

    Sorry it didn't fit! Maybe it would work on my body type. But then again, one size fits all isn't always great.

    Thanks for the review (or warning).
