Plus Size Maid Outfit - Really Just OK-Looking

I really didn't find this to be the greatest lingerie piece. It's not very flattering to my body type, and my husband thinks both the hat and the apron just look silly. A different body type or shape may enjoy this piece, but it's not the best for me.

This outfit is really just "eh" for me.

For sizing reference, I am 5'4", about 245lbs, and my measurements are:
Bust-46
Underbust-35
Waist-37
Hips-51
I have an average length torso with short legs.

The outfit is four pieces: Dress, thong, apron, and hat.

The dress fits me comfortably, though the back hem comes up higher than I'd like, and it rides up very quickly. Though the fishnet is soft and feels nice against my skin, the lace on the hem is very scratchy. The lace at the top of the cups is a little softer, but it doesn't even touch your skin, so you don't really notice it. The label on the dress states that this piece is machine wash cold, line dry. I personally prefer to hand-wash my lingerie with a lingerie-specific detergent. The material is 100% polyester, and the piece is made in China. The body of the dress has three seams: one up each side, one up the back, and an elastic band around the top of the body, forming the bottom of the cups and the top of the back and sides. The front of the body is 16" to the top of the top row of lace, 18.5" to the bottom of the fishnet, and 21" to the bottom of the second row of lace, 16" across at the elastic under the bust, and 24" across at the top row of lace. The shortest point of the back is 10" to the top row of lace, 12" to the bottom of the fishnet, and 14" to the bottom row of lace. The dip up in the back exposes the entire length of my butt. The cups are basic triangle cups, with elastic along the outside and lace along the inside. They are 6" from the underbust to the point that the strings are sewn on, and 6.75" along the elastic at the bottom. The cups will best fit the C-DD range, a little larger or smaller depending on your band size. They do stretch considerably, but the structure is not sufficient to support my J-cup self, though the cups do stretch enough to cover about 3/4 of my breasts.

The fishnet thong is quite comfortable, to be honest. The strings dig in just slightly on me; if your hips are about 4-5" smaller than mine, it shouldn't dig on you. The tag states hand wash cold, line dry, and that the piece is 100% polyester. There is a small bit of lining in the crotch, however as the label does not state cotton content, I would not recommend this to anyone who requires a cotton liner to their panties. I personally don't mind - it's very soft and silky, which always gets bonus points to me. The thong is 9" high, and the widest point of the front is 5.25" while the narrowest is 1.5". The back is 3" wide at the widest point, and 1/5" at the narrowest. The string forming the waistband is .25" thick with a picot trim on the top, and the waist is 16.25" across, unstretched.

The apron is hand wash cold, line dry, and 100" polyester. It is satin with lace around the bottom and sides, and a satin ribbon forms the waist and ties in the back. The lace is quite scratchy, and the apron honestly looks silly when worn with the dress, though it does serve to camouflage a bit of my belly. The apron is 7.5" to the top of the lace and 10" long total, including the waist, which is 1" long. The apron is 9.5" wide excluding the lace, and 14.5" wide including the lace. The tie is 70" inches long.

The hat made my husband laugh, and he says that "it would honestly kill the sex". It is hand wash cold, line dry, and 100% polyester. The lace on the hat is far softer than the lace on any other piece - figures, the lace that's nowhere near your skin is the softest. The hat is 2 pieces of satin covering a stiffer material, which gives it structure, with a satin tie to fit it to your head. The hat is 6" wide and 3" high, and the tie is 48" long, which is more than sufficient to fit any head.

All of the ribbon ends are cut at an angle and finished to prevent fraying. I honestly did not find this to be a very flattering piece. However if you are larger but do not have rolls or love handles, it will likely look quite cute.
Experience
The piece comes in a paperboard box with the product image on the front and back - front image on front, back image on back. There are plastic windows on the sides through which you can see the product, and which have the image of a large red jewel in the center. The front has the brand name, product name, and size. The back gives you a brief product description, states the product size again, and provides the size range: 165-275lb, 75-115kg. The back also states Made In China, and includes barcode, brand website, style number, and recycling symbol. The box is a little oddly shaped, like a curved-side, rectangular pop-up envelope would be the best way I can describe it. Inside the box, the outfit is contained in a plastic bag.
Follow-up commentary
My mind hasn't changed on this set at all, unfortunately. It would be cute if my body were more streamlined, so it sits in the back of my camming closet until I can lose the weight to make that happen. The hat is still very silly looking - that will never change.

    What I find with most vaguely sized clothes is that it needs tailoring.
