Plus-Sized Office Minx

This garment is easy to wash and wear and it's fun for that office or library minx look. While I wasn't overall really that pleased with it, it may work better for people of a different shape. However, if the price wasn't so reasonable, I would not be able to recommend it.

I was immediately attracted to the look of this Working Late outfit. It reminded me of the popular naughty librarian type of costume that I have been looking for. I was excited that it was available in plus-size, as the search for anything that isn't a chemise can often end up in frustration.

Unfortunately, it didn't fit me very well. From the photo, I was expecting a little more coverage up top, so I was disappointed that the V dips below my breasts. This is also troublesome as there is obviously no breast support, so I need to wear a bra. It's not so bad, but I wish my bra didn't hang out so much. I don't have a short torso, either, at 5'7" tall.

Also, I have what is colloquially known as a "bubble butt". This causes the cute white frills on the bottom of the back of the garment to sit incorrectly, as if being perched upon a shelf rather than lying flat. Sigh. Something doesn't fit right on my butt? Story of my life. I'm used to it by now. As for the thong, it obviously didn't fit me correctly, but this may be less to do with my bubble butt and more to do with the fact that it seems to be a regular thong with extra long straps added to the sides.

Fitting issues aside, I liked the length of the garters. They might be a bit long on someone shorter, though, because they hit me just right. The plastic glasses are funny, as the frames are totally empty. I guess there's no point to adding a lens, as they're not real glasses, but I still got a kick out of them.

The outfit is made of a thin polyester material. It's light and comfortable, feels ok against the skin, (but I was glad it was sleeveless, as I have eczema on my upper arms that would have been very irritated by the material) though it is very sheer. The body isn't terribly see-through, but the white fabric on the collar and ruffles is pretty much transparent. I'm not 100% sure why this material was chosen for the collar, as you can see the darker material through and it doesn't look quite right. I hate to say it, but it looks kind of cheap.

It's easy to clean at least; I just threw it in the wash on the lowest heat setting and it was fine. It didn't need to go in the dryer, being so thin and light, so I just hung it up to dry. The thing to remember about polyester is that it's an incredibly durable material. As long as the construction is sound, (which it seems to be in this garment) the fabric will last throughout a lot of wear.

All in all, I think I looked pretty cute in the outfit. I don't find it overtly sexual-looking. In fact, if the garters and frills were removed, it would make a pretty cute top to wear with a pair of jeans. With an added camisole, of course.
Follow-up commentary
My measurements haven't changed, so I am still unable to properly wear/enjoy this outfit. I did take an adorable picture of my dog wearing the glasses though!
