Plus Size is NOT an Option in this Business!

The piece is extremely adorable, soft, and overall good quality. If the company had made this according to their own size chart, it would have been the greatest piece I owned. However, the engineering of the piece flopped and they created a self-esteem hitter instead.

extremely useful review
When I saw this I HAD to have it! It's an adorable piece that I thought would get lots of wear. However, Seven 'til Midnight is not a company who understands what 'plus size' means, or they just screwed up on the first piece I tried from them.

PACKAGING
This cami/thong set comes in a cardboard box with a pushed in top, much like some bras and panties are sold in mass retailers. The box is cute and would make this easy to wrap if you bought it as a gift. There is no nudity on the box which makes this safe to leave out, however, it does show the stock pic of it being worn if you have the need to hide such things.

The box is closed with just a sticker. I was so excited to get this I just ripped the box open instead of carefully peeling the sticker off to save the box. I have a lingerie drawer and IF this piece fit, I would have preferred to keep it in the box. But it is possible to preserve the packaging if you are interested. Once you pop the lid and pull the pieces out, they are folded around a piece of cardboard like the way underwear comes in stores. There are no additional wrapping or tags.

DETAILS
There are two pieces to this: A Camisole Styled Top and a Skirted Thong with Garters that resembles a Garter Belt. Both pieces have the following details...

Material: 90%Nylon - 10% Spandex
Care: Hand wash cold, do not bleach, line dry, do not iron.

Both pieces are black with white vertical stripes. There are three pink bows down the front, one in the center of the thong, and one of each of the four garters. It is also trimmed in the same vibrant neon pink under the bust, down the front of the cami, around the waistband of the thong, and ribboned through the garter straps. Both have their clothing tags on the top backing and are super thin and soft to not cause discomfort.

Seven 'til Midnight's Size Chart for OS PLUS is:
Size 16-22
C-DD Cup
40-50" Bust
36-44" Waist
42-56" Hip

My Measurements:
Size 22
C Cup
42" Bust
40" Waist
50" Hips

From what you will see below, the company does NOT follow it's size chart! This runs much smaller then it should which is HIGHLY disappointing!

CAMISOLE
There is no closure available on this piece. It is simply a 'pull on' style. The halter piece is a softer then normal lace that goes down to the underbust. It has some decent stretch, however, when you first look at it it's extremely tiny for a 'plus size'. It is bunched down the front AND down the back seam, which is supposed to give it a flirty look. If it was the right size, it would look great. There 2 1/2" of black lace trimming the bottom of the camisole as well. The lace is a little see through which makes this an indoor piece.

Unstretched Measurements:
Waist & Hips: 14"
Bust: 16"
Length of Halter From Underbust: 14"

Stretched Measurements:
Waist & Hips: 22" Max (44" Around if you want to not be able to breathe)
Bust: 22" Max (The lace does NOT stretch much)
Length of Halter From Underbust: 16"

As you can see from the pics below and keeping my measurements in mind, the piece does not fit. Although I was able to squeeze this over my body, I was uncomfortable the whole time and in fear of the stitches popping out.

THONG
There are no pictures of me wearing this for you guys because I couldn't get it over my hips. I had already figured as much after trying on the camisole. It's really adorable though! The lace covering the thong and acting as a garter belt is truly adorable. The thong is of the same material as the camisole and also the same color from front to back. The garters have plastic snaps and NO adjusting feature, so you're stocking will need to be as high as the garters. There is also no stretch to the lace garters as well.

Unstretched Measurements:
Hips: 15"
Length of Thong from Hip to Bottom: 8"
Length of Garters: 8 1/2"

Stretched Measurements:
Hips: 24" MAX (48" Around if you like to be suffocated)
Length of Thong from Hip to Bottom: 14" MAX (I wouldn't recommend it)
Length of Garters: 8 1/2" (There is no stretch)

There isn't enough stretch in the waist or material in the thong to make this piece actually work for me. Definitely not what their size chart says.

Experience
Seven 'til Midnight did NOT use their own size chart when making this item. As pretty as this is, all it did was make me feel bad about my body. As someone on medicine with no choice in the way my body looks, sexy lingerie is supposed to make me feel better about myself. This was quite depressing.

Between the size issues and the garters being non-adjustable, the piece was a huge flop. However, if you are a size 16 or under, you should enjoy this one. It really is a lovely item with good quality materials. This was a no-star item for me, but judging by the quality of the piece and how great it looked on the friend I gave it to who is a size 12, I have to give it more in fairness. I really hope the company doesn't design all their pieces with a secret size chart for thin people... because I'd love to have more pretty items. However, I'm not so sure I will be risking the self humiliation again.
Follow-up commentary
This is so poorly sized and looks so bad on my body type, that it hasn't gotten any use. Quite disappointing.

    Thanks for the review, I got this as a free assignment a few months back an contacted JR an was told to send it back in. It didn't fit me either the undies wouldn't go over my thighs, the top was tight around the middle but looked great to a point but nothing I would have wanted to keep. Sorry it didn't work for you either

    thanks for the review. I agree on the sizing. They should test the items to make sure it will fit true to size than tell the customer it will fit x size and it doesn't. Then when it doesn't the customer will be disappointed not only in the product but the fact the product didn't fit them.
