Take two on my corset hunt (Size Small)

I've been searching for a corset that would work for my small chested body. Although this corset is not perfect for me, I feel this could be a great piece for many. It is highly crafted, stretchy, and has thick material on the inside lining making it perfect for in and out of the bedroom.

What it is This is a mostly black corset with purple accents from Coquette. It can be worn in and out of the bedroom. You can wear this alone for something sexy for you or your partner and when worn with some nice black dress pants or skirt, this corset can be transformed into a classy top for going out. This does not have any underwire or designated area for the breasts. It is just a solid, flat area where your breasts fit. The material is very thick and for those that have the breasts to wear this properly, shouldn't have to wear a bra underneath. It does come with two removable bra straps so the wearer can choose either to wear this with or without straps. It also has 4 removable garter straps so the wearer can pair these with their favorite stockings as well.

Sizes Eden Carries Eden carries this corset in the sizes S, M, L, XL, and 1X-2X, so this should fit a variety of sizes. I ordered this in size small and the measurements in this review is based off the size small.

Given the following information, I should be able to wear this corset with no problem, but it should be 2" big in the bust area and 4"-6" in the hips if it went down that far. This is very accurate on how it fit me, and I believe it is sized correctly. I did not have any issues with the fit of this at all. With the adjustable bra straps, I was able to make this top small enough for my small chest. However, since this does not have any padding to it, it really accents how flat chested I am.

Measurements taken laid flat If you need any more measurements, feel free to contact me.

This corset has two rows of 18 hook and eye closures similar to a bra. The hooks are spaced 1/2" apart. The bra area is 1 3/4" wide on one hook and 1" wide with both hooks hooked. The bra strap at its longest is 15" and at it's shortest is 9". The bra strap measures in at 1 1/2" wide. It is very easy to attach the bra straps to the corset; there are 4 loops sewn into the inside of the corset, and you just slip the bra straps through the two loops on the same side. The loops are sewn 8" apart.

It has two loops in the center for the ribbon to go through and the ribbon is 50" long and 1 1/2" wide. Laid flat, the corset is 27 1/4" wide at the top, 26" wide in the middle where the ribbon is, 29" at the bottom, and includes 29" of purple mesh and black lace. The plastic boning has different measurements depending on where they are located on the corset. Their length are as follows: 12 3/4", 12 3/4", 13", 13 1/4", 14 3/4", 15", 13", 13 1/4", 12 3/4", and 12 3/4".

The four garters at their shortest length are 5 inches long with an additional 2 1/2" black ribbon hanging down. At its longest length, the garters measure 8". They are approximately 1/4" wide. They are also very easy to attach to the corset. There are four loops sewn into the bottom of the corset and they just slide into each loop. The garter clips are made of plastic so you do not have to worry about any metal clips running your stockings.

To slip this on, I first hook all of the hook and eyes around the front and when that is completed, I slide it around to the back where they are supposed to be. If you did not have anyone to help you put this outfit on, I found this to be the easiest way to do it.

Material and Care
The corset is made in China and made of 82% nylon and 18% spandex exclusive of trim. The spandex allows for stretching which I love. To care for this corset, the tag recommends to hand wash only and hang to dry. It has 10 vertical strips of plastic boning 8 of which are accented in purple.
Experience
Packaging


It arrived in a clear plastic bag on a black padded hanger that Coquette is known for including with their lingerie pieces. You can keep the plastic bag to store your corset or use it for other purposes to keep other items clean. I don't store my lingerie on hangers in the closet, but I will use the hanger for some of my dresses. Attached to the corset was cardboard with a picture of a model wearing the outfit and the back had the sizing and company information.

Craftsmanship Overall, I consider the corset to be highly crafted. My only complaint was the purple ribbon was wrinkled when I received it and one piece of lace won't lie flat in the front. Also, I think if one was rough with the lace, it would easily tear off.

Overall, I think this is a gorgeous corset, but again I do not have the breasts to fill this out and do not like that it accents how flat chested I am. My nipples are so close to the boning that if I move from side to side they end up touching the boning. It is not uncomfortable, but not something that I am used to. I'm giving it four stars because it's just too big for smaller chested ladies, but other than that I find it to be great.
Follow-up commentary
I loved the color combination of this corset, but it just did not work for me since I'm so small chested. After trying a few more corsets and bustier style lingerie since this review, I've decided I just don't have the body to be able to wear these.
