Hearts To Heat Things Up

A cute Valentine's themed addition to most lingerie collections, this set is soft to the touch and feels great against the skin, and is covered in adorable little hearts. The underwire provides support but is a bit finicky in staying where it needs to, but if you're not wearing it all day it probably won't make a big difference!

As a note, the included measurements are so that you can compare actual measurements of the item I received and am reviewing to items that you have at home and already know how they fit you.

When it arrives:

Inside the clear plastic bag, you'll find a chemise with garter straps, and a g-string thong. The g-string design is the same basic one you see a lot with sets like this; good for swapping between outfits but not likely to be what you want to wear all day long. It measures 11" across the top laid flat, and stretches up to 16". The triangle on the front is the same see-through red mesh with adorable heart decals and measures about 5" across and 6" down, and has no liner.

The chemise features underwire cups and adjustable straps similar to those you might find on most bras. From the underside of the center of each cup, there's a line of ruched mesh that goes all the way down the length of the front and ends at a black bow where you'll find the garter straps starting from. You'll also find a matching black bow in between the cups. It measures 19" from the side of the cup to the bottom of the hem, 14" across the top laid flat, and stretches up to 17". The back features an adjustable clasp closure similar to a bra, directly above a small keyhole in the design. Both of the cups, as well as the main body of the chemise, are a lovely red see through mesh with little solid hearts all over.

The mesh itself is very soft to the touch and feels nice against the skin.

Figuring out your sizing:

The product page lists this as coming in either an S/M or an L/XL, and the tag on the one I received says it's an M. To Charm Wear that means they're aiming for this to fit a size 6-8, with a bust of 37-39", waist of 28 1/2-30 1/2", and hips of 39 1/2-42 1/2". I'm usually around a size 6 right now. Bra size of 32B, about 34 1/2" around the largest part of my bust, about 28" around my waist at my belly button, 33" at the top of my hip bones, 40" around the widest part of my hips (around my butt), with a 29" inseam, and I weigh around 122 pounds.

On me, the thong fits how most of them do; well enough but with an obvious line where it digs in depending on how the straps are sitting. The top fits relatively well aside from the underwire in the cups not wanting to stay under my breasts if I did too much moving. Aside from that, it sat about where it was all supposed to and wasn't too tight.

The quality:

The elastic bands are what you find all over the place, but feel sturdy. I didn't spot any random threads that would threaten to take the whole thing down, and overall it feels like something that will last for a fair amount of time with the right care.

Taking care of it:

The tag on the inside of the chemise indicates that it's 88% Nylon and 12% Spandex. If you know what all the laundry symbols mean off the top of your head, that's super awesome because you'll be able to interpret these. Most of the time you're best off hand washing and line drying, but you're usually ok on low in a delicates bag.
Experience
I love the pattern on this set; I mean, how cute are those little hearts?! But the underwire thing drove me nuts. I wore it under my clothes to work one day and was very glad to be able to take it off after a few hours. I think there were maybe 10 minutes between when I put it on and when I put my coat on to leave the house and even in that small time frame I had adjusted the cups back into place a few times. The keyhole in the back is a nice feature to the eye, but a bit of a pain to do up yourself unless you're used to closing your bra in the back (like you're apparently supposed to do anyway) instead of hooking it in the front, spinning it around, and then flipping it up.

My husband did like the design as well, but I feel like it would have been better without the underwire.

    That might have been a comment better left when you approved the review, haha.

    If taking photos was something I was comfortable doing, or had the extra time to do, I would
