Pancake Boobs

This is a really pretty bustier, but it's not what I had expected This was my first bustier purchase and I didn't know what I was looking for. At the time of purchase, I didn't even know what boning was...seriously. While it isn't what I was expecting, it is a classy looking bedroom piece.

extremely useful review
The bustier and matching g-string by Coquette is available in sizes S-XL. I purchased the size extra large. The bustier arrived on a padded hanger, surrounded by plastic. There was no text or photos on the bag. Attached to the bustier were a cardboard tag and a zip lock style bag. The cardboard tag had a photo of a model wearing the bustier, the company name, size, and company website. The zip lock style bag held the detachable, adjustable shoulder straps.

The bustier is 82% nylon and 18% spandex. The material has a lot of stretch to it. The only part of the bustier that does not stretch is the cups.

I’ve taken measurements of the piece laying flat, unstretched. The bustier was done up on the second row of eye closures (tightest fit). If you need additional measurements, please feel free to send me a message and I can get them for you.

Thong
Waistband unstretched: 15 ½ inches
Waistband stretched as much as I could: 25 inches
Widest part of material that covers your front area: 4 inches

Bustier
Detachable, adjustable shoulder straps length: 9-16 inches
Chest (armpit to armpit): 14 ½ inches
Cup length: 5 ¾ inches
Cup width: 7 inches
Length of bustier (armpit to bustier bottom): 15 ½ inches
Adjustable garter straps: 4-6 inches

The bustier does up with hook and eye closures down the centre back of the bustier. There are 2 rows of 19 eyes, with a ¾ inch gap between the rows. There are 5 plastic boning pieces in the bustier; 3 in the front, and 1 on each side. There is no boning in the back of the bustier.

The shoulder straps are detachable so you do not have to wear them with the bustier. The loops that the shoulder straps attach to are on the inside of the bustier, so it will not look odd if you choose not to wear them. The garter straps are attached to the bustier, and cannot be removed unless you cut them off. There are 6 garter straps in total on the bustier; 2 in the front, 2 in the back, and 1 on each side of the bustier. The bustier does not come with stockings, but you can pair the bustier with any pair of stockings that you may already own. Below is a photo of the attached garters. You can see how the bustier tapers down into a “v” to the garters. I personally would prefer the bustier without garters, but I know many people prefer them.

There is under wire and a very, very thin layer of padding in the cups, so you do not need to wear a bra with this bustier. The outside of the cups is deep purple with black floral lace on top. There is also a cute little black bow between the cups. The chest area is my favourite part of the bustier. This could be because my it’s my favourite colour, but it’s also just so darn pretty!

The g-string has the same pattern as the cups on the bustier (floral lace). The back of the g-string doesn’t go straight across like most g-strings do. This g-string goes into a “v” in the back. It’s much easier to see than for me to try and explain this, so in the photo below you can this. There is no liner in the g-string.

The g-string was really, really low on me. The waistband was stretchy and comfortable, but I don’t wear my undies that low, ever. The material of the bustier was very comfortable against my skin and I have no complaints at all about the comfort of the piece.

The care tag states that the piece should be hand washed only, and hung to dry. The bustier should not be tumble-dried, bleached, or dry-cleaned. I suggest storing the bustier on the hanger that it arrived with.

As for my experience… well, this was the very first corset I had purchased, and it was sitting in the bottom of my closet, with tags still attached. I started ordering corsets and bustiers like crazy, and I would order ones that I could wear out in public. I guess I just forgot about this one.

I initially purchased this because I had read a review that said it was very “slimming”. This of course was before I even know what the heck garters were (I’m serious). All I cared about was making my body look smooth when I wore nice outfits, rather than having the lumps and bumps from my belly, etc showing.
Experience
...continued

When I tried this bustier on, it felt most comfortable on the second row of eye closures (tightest fit). I was able to do it up backwards with much sucking in of the stomach, and then turning it around.

The first thing I noticed was the flattening of my chest. I had to pull them up and in so that I didn’t look like I didn’t have a chest (I wear a C cup). After the rearranging of my chest, they were visible again, but the bottom portion of my chest, which was still in the cups, was flattened. This surprises me because usually with the XL pieces, I have a bit of room in the chest. My boobs actually had “muffin top” from the tightness of the cups. When I tried a shirt on overtop of the bustier, you could see the bulging boob action through the shirt. It sort of looked like I had 4 breasts instead of 2.

Honestly, I didn’t really find much of a difference with this bustier when it comes to body shaping. I’ve tried quite a few other bustiers and corsets and it seems to have the same amount of shaping power as the other pieces I have that have plastic boning. It is pretty, but don’t expect a miraculous transformation. Also, you sort of have to attach the garters to something because if you don’t, they just flop around underneath your clothes.

Below are a few photos of me wearing the bustier, please excuse my pink pyjama pants. The first photo is a front view, second is a side view, and third is a back view. You can’t really tell from the photos how flattened the lower part of my boobs are. As you can see in the photos, I had to pull my boobs up and in, in order to make them visible. This makes the cups look like they are really low, but in fact, there is boob in there- it’s just flattened like a pancake. In the photo of the back view, you can see how the plastic boning sort of puffs out at my hips. I have wide hips, but the boning is extra puffy in that area because I had sat down for about half an hour in the piece. While I was sitting down, the boning seemed to flex itself into a really awkward looking, puffy position. When I stood up, I tried flexing it back, but it seemed to want to stay that way.

IMG

Overall, I give this bustier a 3 out of 5. It’s well made, it’s pretty, and it’s comfortable; but its boning is terribly flexible, the cups flatten my boobs, their aren’t any larger sizes available, and the garters are not detachable. If I were being completely subjective, the rating would be a 2 (but I’m not)- but that’s because I really had no idea about these sorts of pieces. I can’t blame the bustier for that. I can’t wear this bustier in public because it looks too much like a bedroom piece, and I won’t wear it under clothing because it really doesn’t do anything for my body. I’ll keep this bustier to wear in the bedroom when I get bored of my regular lingerie pieces.
Follow-up commentary
I have not worn this piece since the original review. It does absolutely nothing for me. I'm holding onto the bustier in hopes that I can figure out a way to wear it where it will actually flatter my figure.
