What's so burlesque about this?

The Burlesque Chemise and Thong is a gorgeous chemise from Dreamgirl that could be improved upon. The tight fit and rough material definitely detract from the quality of this piece. However, it is still gorgeous and could flatter many body types.

The Burlesque Chemise and Thong is, as the name implies, a chemise and thong set from Dreamgirl. It is available in sizes small, medium, large, 1X/2X, and 3X/4X. It is also available in red and black as well as pink and black. I do have this chemise and thong set in blue and black, which has been discontinued.

When I received my Burlesque chemise and thong, it was packaged in a plastic garment bag and hanging on a plastic hanger. I did not receive a pair of thigh highs with this set as other reviewers have. I have kept the hanger and the garment bag to store my chemise in. I just keep it hanging in my closet with my other pieces of lingerie. It could easily be folded and stored in a drawer though.

Packaging

The front of the chemise is black, dotted mesh with a blue satin panel in the center of the torso. There is a lace overlay over the satin panel. All along the hem of the chemise is a short, 1 inch ruffle. On the front, the detachable garters have blue satin elastic on them. The back garters are just plain black detachable garters. There are two large black bows over the front garters that are not removable.
Garters

The cups of the chemise are the same blue satin that is on the torso. Along the bottom of the cups is the same lace overlay that is also on the torso. The lace is connected to the adjustable straps of the chemise so when the straps move, the lace moves. Between the cups is a large black bow that is not removable. The cups of the chemise do have underwire, so they provided me with excellent support. They are unpadded cups, however, they are lined so you shouldn’t have a problem with nipples showing. There is a large seam that runs inside of the cups from top to bottom. I found the seam to be very uncomfortable and scratchy.

Cups

You can see the seam that runs through the center of the cups.

The back of the chemise is one solid piece of black mesh. There are no hooks, zippers, or ties of any kind to loosen the chemise. This does make it difficult to put on and remove. The chemise is meant to be form fitting and I had trouble putting it on and pulling it off over my head.

The included thong is made of the same black mesh that is along the back of the chemise. It is fairly stretchy but the waistband is made of a slightly rough elastic. I found the waistband to be uncomfortable. Because it is so thin, it cut into my hips and was very unflattering. Fortunately, you can’t really see the thong through the chemise. The tag is on the back of the thong and is visible through the material of the thong. The tag can be removed if you have a seam ripper. It is a very rough, thick tag that is quite visibly sewn into the waistband of the thong.

Thong

Along the side of this chemise is a gather. To gather the sides of the chemise, you can pull the two ribbons and lightly tie them together. I like that you can gather this chemise as much or as little as you want. You can leave the sides ungathered altogether if you wish. When I gathered the sides, it caused the satin panel in the center to also bunch up.

Ungathered
Gathered

The chemise is 18 inches wide at the hem and 12 inches wide at the narrowest point or the waist of the chemise. The satin panel is 6 inches wide. The chemise is 21 inches long from armpit to hem. The cups are 5 1/2 inches along the center from the underwire to the top of the cup. The garters range from 5-1/2 inches long to 8 1/2 inches long when adjusted. The thong is 13 1/2 inches wide unstretched and 18 inches wide fully stretched. The thong is 14 inches from front to back. In the front, the thong is 4 1/2 inches at its widest. In the back, the thong is 2 1/4 inches at its widest.

The tag inside both the chemise and the thong say that this set is made of 100% polyester. However, the EdenFantasys product page states this set is a mix of nylon/polyester/spandex. The care instructions say to hand wash both pieces in cold water and line dry only. The material is very thin and could be damaged by a washing machine or dryer.
Experience
This chemise was very form fitting on me. I wouldn’t say it was too small, but there definitely wasn’t any wiggle room. I’m 5’4 and 150 lbs. I wear a 36C and a size 10 jeans. I have a 27 inch waist and 37 inch hips. Looking at the Dreamgirl size chart, it should be a perfect fit, if not a little too loose. When I first put this chemise on, I honestly had a lot of difficulty. The lack of hooks, ties, or zippers made it hard to put on. It’d be much better if it had a closure of some sort so it could be loosened for dressing and removal.

The chemise was also pretty tight on my hips, especially when it was gathered. When it was gathered on the sides, I had a really hard time keeping it from riding up as well. I kept having to pull it back down so the hem didn’t end up at my natural waistline. The material was also pretty uncomfortable. I wouldn’t recommend this for extend wear because the mesh is pretty rough. I did find the fact that the straps and lace are connected really annoying. Anytime the straps slid, the lace moved. It would be much cuter if the lace were attached to the cups.

I do have to give this chemise and thong set three stars because it’s just too gorgeous. I love the blue satin with the lace overlay. The blue elastic garters are also adorable. The slight issues with sizing and material have caused me to take off two stars. If you plan on ordering this in pink or red, I would recommend ordering up a size unless you like form fitting lingerie.
