Not Quite As Pictured

The Midnight Oasis set by Escante has it's ups and downs. The cincher is much prettier than in the product page but difficult to get into. The bra is nice and supportive but the straps are not what is advertised. Although this sets thong is better than what you would expect that's not a good reason to purchase the set. If you can get over its faults the Midnight Oasis is an attractive set that you can grow to love.

Overview
Escante’s Midnight Oasis three piece set is, like a lot of lingerie pieces, sexy but flawed. This blue and black set has been my most difficult review to date. One day I love it the next day I think it isn't worth the price. For these reasons I recommend reading below and making your own judgements.
Material and Texture
On all three pieces the tags note that there ‘body', meaning the non lace portions, is made up of 90% Nylon and 10% Elastane (spandex). The lace portion is 95% Nylon and 5% Elastane. Now I know the product page makes this sound extra luxurious by telling us this set is all lace and satin but I have found that while the blue satiny portion of the garment is a dream the lace is less than luxurious. This is not the roughest lace material I have felt before but it can be slightly itchy if you are wearing it for longer periods of time. On the other hand the blue elastane (satin-like) portion is much softer and extra glossy.
My main concern for this product in terms of fabric comes from the bra straps. What sucks about these straps is that sometimes product pages mislead us, in this case by featuring solid black nylon straps. What we actually get is rough, black lace, with what I think is plastic strips in the middle. This makes the bra straps extra stretchy and extremely irritating to wear.


Design and Craftsmanship
Bra
Horrible non removable straps notwithstanding, the bra itself is lovely in terms of design. Containing no padding but a sturdy underwire this portion of the set exudes sex appeal with its peak-a-boo bra cups. The blue modest portions of the cups are 2.5 inches while the lace allows 3 inches of breast to show spicing up the set. It tops off with more lace detailing the rim of the breasts. The back contains an adjustable hook and eye format for putting the bra on. Overall the craftsmanship of the bra is decent with the only flaw lying at the top detailing which has a few strands of fabric fringing out.


Cincher
The first thing I noticed upon getting a view of the model from behind on the product page was how puffy the ruffles looked on the back of the cincher. This was something I had hoped would be removable. So color me pleasantly surprised when the back was not as puffy as I had been lead to believe. This actually made the cincher the nicest part of the set. Unfortunately lacing the cincher up is such a hassle and hardly worth the trouble. While there is one hook at the top of the cincher attaches to the fabric 'eye' stitched in across from it that is all the aid one will find when lacing up this garment. The page suggests that this set is hook and eye/lace up. Well it’s more like eye/lace up. There are no hooks, you are given a piece of string to then sewn yourself into the garment and tie up. This on top of the four flimsy pieces of plastic that constitute as boning does little for ones shape. If you’re looking for something to actually cinch this won’t do, it’s more of a decorative piece.




Thong
As soon as this set was unwrapped I noticed something was wrong with the thong, there was a huge snag in the fabric. Since it was the only snag I noticed I proceeded to grab a pair of scissors and do away with the annoyance. I should note that while you’re at it with the scissors you might want to cut away the huge tags every piece in this set boasts as they can be quite annoying. For added comfort and functionality the thong features a cotton crotch liner which measures at 4 inches. This is a must have if you want this portion of the set to last awhile as bacteria can fester in non cotton materials. In terms of design the middle portion same shiny blue elastane as the rest of the set with the lace circling around the hips.


Packaging and Cleaning
This set comes wrapped in pink tissue paper provided by Eden. The Midnight Oasis also comes with a tag attached to the product that has a picture of the model wearing the set from all sides. Luckily the tag is easily removed and did not cause any snags within the fabric. The bra and panties can be washed on cold in the delicate cycle but with all of the lace on the cincher should be hand washed. I would hang dry the entire set to be safe.

Escante Size Chart

The Midnight Oasis is currently available in sizes Small-Large. After reading the size chart I found that Escante seems to run in smaller measurements than other lingerie manufacturers here on Eden. So, following my own measurements I decided to heed the warnings of the chart and purchase a medium.
I have since found that the size chart is pretty spot on in terms of measurement but if I were someone looking into a product from this line I would be more inclined to follow the measurement portion then that of the suggested sizes 6-10 on the chart. I am a 4/6 and the way this set fits leads me to believe it can stretch to accommodate a size 8 in medium but is unlikely to go any further.
Likes and Dislikes
What I wasn’t so fond of
It disappoints me that the cincher wasn’t more effective. I believe that if this lovely cincher had more than four plastic strips of boning holding it up or lengthier it may have sufficed in serving its purpose. To make matters worse Escante gives us a tiny string to lace it up with instead of the promised hooks. Attempting to lace the string through each eye felt akin to threading a needle which is an obvious pain.
Alas this was not why I bought the set in the first place. The reason I chose this set was because I’m a sucker for sexy bra and panty duos. Had the Midnight Oasis been a strapless set I could have handled the slightly prickly bra cups, but the straps given took away from the overall quality of the bra as they were itchy and tacky.
What I loved
While this isn’t a set I would wear every day, and the cincher will probably be given away to someone who can give it a better home, I’m not completely dissatisfied. At the end of the day while this product holds some disappointment it still serves its job. The thong is cute, comfortable, and has a cotton liner which is not something I can say for every panty that comes in a lingerie set. The bra while itchy is still functional, together this set is super sexy. If you only plan on wearing this in the bedroom for a limited amount of time the lace probably won't bother you and this duo can be tantalizing. Heck if you don’t mind the lack of padding you could even wear it for everyday activities which is nice. This is a set that’s good for making a girl feel sexy underneath her clothing on an otherwise frumpy day and I like that. So while it might not be my favorite set it will stay with the others to survive another day to worn again which isn’t something I can say about every piece of lingerie I own.
Follow-up commentary
I have found that I’m not really into this set. Sadly, the Midnight Oasis just stays in my drawers unused. I can’t get over the work one has to put into the waist cincher so I do not bother with it. As for the bra and panties they’re okay. But overall this isn’t the best bra and panty set I own so I’m never enticed to wear it.
