Not as Advertised

Although beautiful, the sizing and product photos of this piece are deceiving. The mesh is absolutely sheer and the actual measurements for this "medium-large" are actually smaller than the medium on Escante's size chart. Buyer beware.

I knew I was taking a risk when I ordered this chemise in ML, but I was hoping it would be stretchy enough to fit me. I wasn't familiar with Escante's sizing, so I figured I could always return it, if the fit was off. Unfortunately, the fit was off and I'll have to send it back, but I can tell you about it anyway.

I really love the look of the chemise. Stretchy lace make up the cups, and ties around the neck in halter style. Red, leopard-printed mesh flies away from the empire waist for a looser fit. The entire waist is elastic trimmed, and the back sits below the shoulder blades, should your upper back and shoulders. The chemise comes with a matching thong, too.

The lace is soft, with a floral motif. It's smaller and opaque in some areas. Your nipples may not show through, depending upon position. The outside of the cups is trimmed with matching, black elastic, while the inside is the scalloped edge of lace, which will lace against your breasts in a feminine manner. There is a vertical seam down the entire length of the cups. The mesh is fine and silky, but not as smooth and cool to the touch as some lace I've tried. This isn't necessarily a complaint. It seems slightly less likely to run.

I've purchased more than one red leopard print, and I think the colors are just stunning. The spots break up the deep red interestingly.

The empire waist was no way going to fit my 38" rib cage. Escante's size chart says medium is a 36" and large is a 38", so this is definitely on the smaller end of the hybrid scale. This measures 12" flat and I can only stretch it to about 17" before I feel like it might rip. It's even smaller than their mediums are supposed to be! Oddly enough, the included thong would fit my 41" hips fine.

The lace cups are set far to either side of the piece, which you can see on the model. This hugs the outside of your breasts and will probably look best if you're are enhanced or naturally perfectly round. For some reason, there's a good couple of inches of material between the model's breasts, but on mine, the inner corners of the lace cups do meet, right behind a small, ribbon bow.

The lace and waistband stretch but offer little support, so I can't imagine this would be a good fit for anyone with over a D-cup. I personally thought that it looked a little long on my C-cups and short frame, but the halter style also elongates the appearance of the cups.

For example, it's 10" from the bottom of the cup to the top vertex, and the elastic string extends another 18.5", so this piece is quite adaptable. If you were even shorter than I am--5'2"--you could tie up some of the lace into the halter.

From the waist to the bottom hem, which is finished in black stitching, the piece measures 15". It may be just slightly shorter in the back, but the length is about the same all around. This would hit me on my upper thigh, so the chemise is shorter than it might look on the model.

There's also one major difference between the product photos and real life. This mesh is sheer. I mean, you can see right through it. It looks opaque in the images, but it's anything but. I don't know how they photographed it, or if it's just an issue of flash and lighting, but I can easily see through both layers.

Escante does include a hanger with this one, but it came almost bent to piece in my package. It's definitely weak.
