Not a romper to romp in

Flimsy fabric, mislabeled information on this "romper" and lack of support are enough for me to pass on this if there's a next time.

I was torn between this halter romper and another cut-out romper, neither of which are flattering on me but I ended up choosing this because I thought I could wear this out with jeans/blazer or as a cover up.

This comes in a cardboard packaging with a picture of the model on the front. The outside is wrapped in plastic.

First thing I noticed when I took it out of the packaging was that the material was more sheer than I expected. This is light and the material feels really thin and cheap. There is no snugness to this, which is what I thought I'd get based on the model. The top is a halter-style top. I tried it on without a bra and felt that the top is cut too low. I thought the front had a zipper because the product information states there is a zipper but there isn't. There are no underwires in this romper. If the front was a little higher, I would be happy with this. But since it is really low, there is no support and you can't pull it up, either, because the front is already stitched. I regularly use double-sided tape/pasties to hold things in place if I can't wear a bra and even with that, this looks awkward.

The bottom part does nothing for my butt. It doesn't flatter it at all. Because this is a halter top, it is backless. This adds a hint of sexiness the front fails to do.

After the initial time I tried it on, I wore it again with a black bra. Even though I had the support from my bra and expected it to look better on me, wishfully hoping like the model, I ended up looking like I had botched implants. The front got scrunched up. So what I did was stitch the front up 3 inches so that I can wear a bra and not have the front bunch up. Now I can go braless and have the sides and top support me instead.

This is made up of spandex and polyester. Polyester is a material that should be kept away from high heat because it is combustible. Spandex is known for being really elastic. This has some give to it but it isn't stretchy. I ordered small which is recommended by the sizing chart. I believe the sizing runs true to size so order appropriately as this won't be very accommodating.

I suggest hand washing this in cool to warm water and air drying it. I've worn this 3 times and hand washed it after every use. The halter strap is already wearing away and there is a hole on my hips.

I'm definitely disappointed with this and I'm be weary of trying any more products from Espiral because I haven't had any luck with anything I've gotten from them. This is a romper I shall retire.
Follow-up commentary
Ugh, I hate the sight of this in my closet. I hate throwing clothes away so I'm going to use this as a rag.

    Sorry you had so many problems with it! I've had awful luck with Espiral, too.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I like a lot of their designs but their quality is so off.

    Thank you for the review. What are the company's sizing, what size did you get, do your measurements fall within their sizing?

    @ unfulfilled I ordered small and their sizing for this romper is from small to extra large. Their measurements are appropriate to their sizing but I wouldn't get a smaller size in the hopes of it fitter better.
