Sexy, but fits oddly!

Overall, the Mesh ruffled bustier with g-string is a good buy, and great to wear out (maybe with bottoms on), or in the house to surprise/turn-on a partner.

As my first every bustier, I was really excited to get this one from Coquette. I love green, and finding this one in a nice shade of green was great.

The bustier is made from a variety of different materials: there is black mesh in the middle on top of a neon green middle. The mesh seeps out on the sides to make a little ruffle on either side of the hard boning that lines the middle on the left and right. On the edge of the ruffle is a bright green string.

At the top center there is a little green bow with a pair of metal lips dangling from it. This shows in one of the pictures, but I hadn't really paid attention to it until I got it.

The sides are black and all the fabric is stretchy. There are four lines of boning (a hard, almost-plastic feeling support), two in the front, and two in the back. These help the bustier keep its shape and not wrinkle or ride up.

There are also wired bra cups. There are no options for sizes (That I noticed), so... assuming this is supposed to be one-size-fits-all/most, I'd be wary about that. I would expect for very large-breasted women (I am a very very full C/small D), fitting into this bustier could be difficult or uncomfortable.

The back of the bustier is much shorter than the front. At the center, there is a section of back mesh with black criss-cross lacing.

A downside is the bra straps at the top. In the back of the bustier, they are only attached by cheap plastic rings. Before leaving the house for the night, one of these rings stretched open enough to slip out of the bustier or the strap at least three times. So you can't go crazy wearing it, or the straps may fall off. When I get a chance, I'll probably sew the straps right onto the bustier.

The thong that comes with it is just that: A thong. There's nothing special there. The crotch-triangle was quite a bit big, though, so this may sit well higher up on the hips.
Experience
I actually received a large. I though there were sizes, but on second look, there are, apparently, no options for different sizes. I had to adjust the straps and tighten the laces in the back for it to fit well. Getting it on was a bit weird. Because of the boning, you need to sort of dive into it in one shot to get it on. Once in, I like how it looked.

As I wore it out, the whole bustier kept shifting, and riding up. I kept noticing my breasts ended up in the middle of the bra-cup wiring instead of being supported by it. Perhaps I need to seriously tighten the lacing in the back, but it was definitely annoying that it kept looking like it didn't fit right or that I was flat chested.
Follow-up commentary
Since writing my review, I've tried on this top a few times. The cheap bra strap attachment I mentioned actually snapped off and broke into 2 pieces, so I haven't worn it since then. I'm going to look for a metal ring to replace the plastic ones, but until then, it's not wearable. Though it gives my breasts zero support, when it's on properly, as long as I'm not moving or breathing too noticeably, it looks great! It's just a shame that that bra attachment broke.

    Yeah, I noticed that the only size the green comes in is L while the red is M I think. It's weird that it depends on what color you get. I think the lips charm is a bit tacky myself, but I love the color of the green. Shame it rides. I have this on my wish list though Big smile

    The green looks nice - wish it came in my size!
  • spicywife
    Too bad it doesn't come in a smaller size. It's so weird how some lingerie has a variety of sizes and others are "one size fits all" or only offered in a particular size. The green is a nice change, I love green! Smile
  • Valyn
    Yeah.. you can adjust the size with the laces in the back quite a bit, though..
  • Angel deSanguine
    This is really cute, it's a shame it won't stay put when you want it to. Thanks for the review!

    A couple of months ago, when I came across this bustier, each of the colors had a full range of sizes. It's possible that Coquette discontinued this design and EF only has what is left in the warehouse. So size L is all that's left for this green bustier. The red and fuschia are only available in medium.

    That aside, nice review! I was interested in getting this bustier, but the bright green string around the ruffles was a bit of a turn-off.

    When I looked at the picture before writing the review, I thought the same, but it really doesn't take away from the bustier when you wear it. I felt really sexy in it. Smile

    Do you know how hard it is to find green lingerie!?! Coquette can be hit or miss, sometimes their products blow you away and other times they leave you desiring a whole hell of a lot more.. this seems like the latter of the two, disappointing.
  • Valyn
    Well, don't get me wrong, it is sexy.. you just need to tape your boobs in, adjust often, or get used to how it looks when it rides up, heh.
  • Naughty Student
    Maybe it rides up bcs of the smaller back...? I don't know. It really is a shame. I agree with SD about Coquette, it is often hit or miss with them.
  • Nashville
    Have you tried lacing this differently? Or has it grown on you over the past few months?
