extremely useful review
This set has a lot of good things going for it, especially for the curvy girls!

First, it comes in sizes ranging from XL up to 3X/4X. Nice plus-sized lingerie can be hard to find, so high-five to EF for carrying this! However, where are the S-M-L sizes? Coquette makes this in the full range of sizes, so I'm not sure why only the larger ones are available here. Odd!

Second, the soft purple mesh part of the top provides a little bit of coverage for those who aren't super comfortable showing off their stomach, but is still sheer enough to give your partner a glimpse of your skin underneath. This is a great choice for those who feel a little more confident with some coverage.

Third, the bra part of the top actually provides some support! It's obviously not as great as a real bra when it comes to giving you some lift and oomph, but compared to a lot of lingerie I've tried, it's actually pretty respectable. There are built-in underwires, and although they were shaped a little too narrow for my breasts, they still do a pretty decent job.

I ordered the XL, which according to the size chart should fit sizes 14-16, D cup, 42-44" bust, 34-36" waist and 44-46" hips. I'm size 11/12, 36-38 D, 33" waist, 39" hips. I'll break down each of those into more detail about what this will actually fit.

The best measurement to use to pick a size for this set is your bust size. The size chart says D cup, but this will probably also fit a C very well, and I can see it working for a full B if you don't mind it being a little roomy. I'm on the larger side of D and found it was just a tiny bit too small, but not enough to be that noticeable. If you're a DD or larger, the XL is probably going to be too small on you. This brings up the main problem with Coquette's plus sizes; According to the size chart, both the 1X/2X and the 3X/4X are also made for a D cup. I have no idea what the reasoning is there, it makes no sense to me. Why wouldn't they at least make the largest size big enough for a DD? Grrr.

One note about the bust area- in the photo the model must be wearing a strapless bra something underneath, because all of this area is see-through black lace. Nipples are gonna show, friends. I actually kind of wish it was solid black under the lace like the picture suggests, since this is a little small on my chest and squished nipple isn't the best look on me.



The lace has a bit of stretch to it, and is nice and soft against the skin.

The back of the babydoll top has bra hooks built in, but this was roomy enough on me to put on and take off without unfastening them. Laid flat, the under bust area measures 16.5" across. There is a little bit of stretch here, but not a ton. There are 3 settings for the bra hooks, so you can gain about an inch if you set it on the loosest one. I measure about 33" around right under my bust, and this fit comfortably, with enough stretch to probably accommodate someone that measures up to about 38", probably more if you adjust the bra hooks to the larger size.

The bra straps are your basic black bra straps and adjust just as you would expect.

You can pretty much ignore the waist category of the size chart, since the babydoll is super loose and flowy. If you are tall like me (I'm 5'11") you may find this a bit short, though. On the model it comes down to cover the panties, but on me it ends at the top of the thong. Measuring from the bow at the top center down, you've got about 21" of length.
Experience
(Continued)
The hip measurement isn't going to affect the fit of the top, but the matching thong measures 18" across when laid flat and stretches to 24" across, so it will probably work best for those who measure about 38-46" around where you like to wear the top of your underwear (for me this is quite a bit different from my actual hips). I do really like the thong's design- it is made of the same soft purple mesh as most of the top with a cute black lace detail along the top front. There is no crotch liner though, so you may want to save this for bedroom use only. My other problem is that it doesn't cover much at all for the size it is supposed to be. Although it kind of stays on, it is loose enough on me that it feels like it will fall off any second. That said, it barely covers anything, so it feels too big and too small at the same time. The top front measures 7" across, and the back is less than an inch across. The elongated triangle of fabric that makes up the body of the thong measures a total of 14" long. Long story short, this will probably fit your hips, but if you fall into the sizes on the chart, it might feel way too skimpy.

There is a small white size tag sewn into the front of the thong, just below the black lace. Since the thong is see-through, this looks kind of tacky, but I'm a little nervous about cutting it out of such delicate material. Cross your fingers!

The set came on a plastic Coquette hanger (the first of the plastic ones I've seen to actually make it through shipping without breaking, yay!) inside of a plastic bag. The straps of both the top and babydoll were would around the hooks of the hanger, which presents a nice visual when you pull the set from the bag, but left indentations on both pieces. I'm sure those will go away over time, but it's a little sad to see your new item already kind of messed up!

Even though you shouldn't put this in the washing machine, it's still pretty easy to take care of since the material is so light. Just hand wash it and hang up to dry.

Overall, I'm giving this 4 stars. The babydoll is cute, easy to wear and comfortable, but not something I'd rave about. Worth buying for sure, but not something I'd get super excited about. The thong is really cute but not really practically designed for larger sizes. I'd suggest wishlisting this set, just maybe not at the top of your list.

    Great review! I wish this came in a L, because I feel like the bust would be too big for me still, even in an XL.

    I wish it came in smaller sizes, too! With the sizes available it seems like you're out of luck if you aren't in the C/D range.
