Peek a boo review

I am ultimately giving this piece a rating of three stars because of the ugly panties and the awkward breast slits. I think with a bit of design change and better panties, this would be a great set, but as it is, it has more possibilities than actual pros. With a bit of customization, I will be keeping it, but if it ripped, I don't think I'd buy another one.

Basics:
This is a two piece lace and mesh set from Leg Avenue. It includes the bustier, which has halter ties behind the neck and eye hooks along the back and a matching lace g-string.

The very first thing I noticed when opening this is the colour, I knew it was going to be red, but this color is so vibrant, so bright it's hard to look away. This would be a good piece for Christmas or Valentines Day.

The body of the bustier is mostly mesh with flexible boning woven every 4 inches. The boning is firm enough to create some structure, but not strong enough for any real shaping.

Sizing
I picked the M/L size, I usually fit between a tight Medium or a loose Large. For the record, I am 5'5", size 10-12, 40" bust, 32" waist, 40" hips, and this set fits me pretty well. The ties do a good job of accommodating a large range of sizes. I think this piece would fit someone larger than me but not much larger and it will fit much more comfortably on someone smaller (especially the panties.

Material & Care:
The material is an 88% nylon and 12% spandex mix. It is very soft and silky to the touch. There were no loose threads and it wasn't itchy or irritating at all.

There wasn't any information on the site about cleaning options, but on the tags it indicated that they should be hand washed and can be tumbled dry on gentle. I think I'm going to hang it to dry just to be safe, unless I'm in a hurry.

Design:
The design of this set is a bit of a mixed bag. On the plus side, I love the patterns, the lacing, the boning, and the vivid color. I also like the eye hook closures on the back.

Now the other side, the neck ties do create support, but they cut into the neck. I think this piece would have been improved with better shoulder straps.

The panties are a complete write off. G-strings in general aren't my favorite, but these are particularly bad. The high narrow cut doesn't work unless your completely, perfectly clean shaven. There's a large seam that runs down the front that chafes. The string part has a tendency to get hopelessly twisted. Finally, once you get everything sorted, these panties are not flattering at all, especially to those with medium to large frames. Thankfully, red lace panties aren't unheard of in lingerie, so I has a pair of red lace boy shorts that made a much better match.

If you look closely at the boning, in some places the material has shifted underneath the mesh to reveal the grey plastic pieces that makes up the boning. It's not obvious unless you look closely, but I think this is something that will get worse over time.

On the display mannequin it looks like the breast slits stay almost closed when tied, and they might if I had breasts like a store mannequin. What happens when I wear it is that the openings above and below the ties gape open unflattering, and I have to keep adjusting them so they look right. I think the peek a boo slits are a nuisance and take away some of the sexiness of this piece. The slits do overlap when not on, and I don't think it would be too hard to sew then together and cut the ties.
Experience
The first time I tried it on, I had forgotten the lacing in the front, and I thought it looked weird. The middle gaped a bit and the spacing between the breasts was awkward. Thankfully, it didn't take me too long to figure out what was missing, and after taking it off, lacing it, and putting it back on, I was much happier. The top creates good cleavage, and the boning, mesh and the bottom curve of the bustier are very flattering.
Follow-up commentary
The flaws in this set became more apparent after a few wears. I can't see this lasting in my closet for much longer.
