Strange fit in plus size

This bustier set by Fantasy Lingerie would work well for someone with a small bust and should hold up for many wears. If you're bigger than a C cup, I'd look elsewhere if you are seeking chest support in your lingerie.

extremely useful review
I saw this set on sale for the spring clearance event and decided to try my luck. This was my first Fantasy Lingerie corset. I've had great luck with Coquette's corsets and bustiers so I decided to see how this brand would fare. I got the piece in the 1X, which according to Fantasy Lingerie's size chart measures like this:

1X
Sizes 18 - 20
Bust 44 - 47
Waist 34½ - 37½
Hips 46 - 48

The top is made of 92% nylon and 8% spandex. The middle section of the piece is a gorgeous sapphire with a satin feel to it, the sides and front are covered with black lace. The side lace is see through which adds an effect that's subtle and beautiful. There's four plastic boning pieces in the top. You can't see them very well and they don't look obvious, which is nice. They do add a little bit of shape to the bustier but nothing drastic, you won't look like you lost a dress size while wearing this. However, for the price, I feel that it does an acceptable job in 'shaping'.

There's underwire in the cups of this bustier which is part of what drew me to it. I like a lot of support in my lingerie. However, for the 1X, the cups were very small. I don't feel like my bust (40 Dcup) is disproportionate to the rest of my body, yet there was no way my breasts would fit in these cups. They were either totally overfilling them or the underwire was slipping beneath my bust which made for a very lumpy looking top. When I could get the top to sit nicely, it looked great, but anytime I moved my chest would pop out of the outfit.


Paired with my (wrinkly) wet look skirt. You can kind of tell what I mean about the cups slipping beneath my bust.

Another problem with the chest area of this piece is that the straps are extremely thin/flimsy and offer no support for larger chests. The sides of the piece aren't very supportive either, so there's no 'band' to hold up your chest. Because it didn't fit, I ended up returning this piece to Eden.


On the hanger ^

The bustier closes with 12 hook/eye closures in the back. It was fairly easy to do and the closures seemed like they were made well.

An awesome benefit of this is that you don't have to hand wash or dry clean it. The tag reads “Machine wash warm gentle wash darks separately tumble dry low, remove promptly do not ring or twist.”

If you are a size medium or so and have a small to average size bust, this will probably be a great piece for you. However if you're plus sized, you may find the piece to be ill fitting to your curves/body shape. I will be looking for something that offers better bust support and cups that fit my chest.

    I really love purple pieces. Thanks for sharing.

    My wetlook booty shorts wrinkle really bad too, must be the material.

    That's too bad the breast support is very poor. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the review. The breast fit is disappointing.

    Thanks all. The cups themselves have a good lift, and would be fine but there's no band or any sort of support to keep them in place! How frustrating!
