Perfect Except for one Crucial Thing..

I am sorry to have to rate this so poorly. It really should be five stars, if not for the boob issue. It is a great corset, IF you are willing to wear a bra under it. I do hope Coquette will realize the problem and fix it for future pieces.

This corset is made by Coquette, a well-known lingerie company. It is absolutely beautiful in person, perhaps even more so than the product page shows. The front part is a gray powernet material overlaid with black mesh with starbursts glued (I believe) on it. These starbursts have not come off at all with repeated wearings and washings; that is a huge plus for me. The corset is closed with a hook-and-eye mechanism. I should also note that it IS indeed boned, in spite of the product description. There are removable bra and garter straps included. The back is made to look like the old-fashioned corsets that lace up in the back. I confess that the back is the main reason I decided to purchase it. Some pictures of the corset, front and back, with measurements:

I am not sure if you can see the measuring tape clearly in the pictures, but I got 15" across and 13" top to bottom. The corset was packaged nicely in a plastic bag, on a plush hanger:

Packaging

I purchased the XL and it fit me snugly. I'm a Large top and size 18 jeans, with most of my weight on my bottom half. Those with more of an apple shape may have a harder time fitting into this.

The corset is made in China, if that matters to anyone. The care instructions state to hand wash it and hang it to dry. I would NOT risk putting this in the washer or dryer; it is way too delicate for that.

While the corset is gorgeous and of reasonable quality, I do have one issue with it: the lack of breast support. There is no underwire. Without a bra, my barely-C cups drown in this thing. I'm sure it would be better with a good underwire bra, but I haven't tried that yet. For me it sort of ruins the look of a corset, which is traditionally strapless. I knocked the overall rating down two stars because I feel Coquette could do a much better job on the cup design.
Experience
I surprised my husband with this piece; he thought it was very sexy on me. He didn't comment on the boob issue; but then again how negative can an aroused man really be?
