If I ever want to feel unattractive, this is the piece I'll put on.

Oh, Courtesan babydoll... why did I buy you? You make me feel completely unattractive, and I believe that it will take me weeks to recover from the shock of seeing myself in you.

Seriously, readers, if you want your boyfriend to ask if he should start calling you grandma, this might be a good piece to buy. For me, this piece was a total flop, as that was NOT what I wanted my boyfriend to say when he saw me in this.

Boy... where do I even begin with this one? I had super high hopes for it, but it was an absolute letdown. I've purchased a lot of lingerie items from edenfantasys.com, but this one.... This one takes the cake as being the least sexy piece ever. I mean, honestly, when I saw myself in this, I burst out laughing. Once I got over the initial humor, I felt like crying -- yes, it was that bad. If my ego ever needs some serious deflating, this is the piece that I would wear to completely crush my self esteem.

So, after all of that? I sent a picture to my boyfriend, who usually loves my lingerie. In this case, however, he replied with: "shall I call you grandma?" ... Now, I don't know about you, but that's not exactly the response I want when I wear lingerie. If it weren't the fact that I agreed with my boyfriend in this case, I'd be highly offended.

Oh well, on with the review!

Basics:
The Courtesan babydoll is made by Escante. I have several of Esctante's items, and I'm usually very impressed. In this case, they got it all wrong.

The babydoll is only available in one color combination: white/ocean blue. It also comes with a matching g-string.

Material & Care:
This is made out of 85% Nylon and 15% Elastane - exclusive of the decoration.

Let's begin with the lower portion of the babydoll. The lower portion is the white mesh, and it's very sheer. The mesh is extremely durable, and I don't feel like it'll snag easily. It's also very stretchy. The mesh doesn't itch, but it doesn't feel nice on my fingertips. It feels kind of like the mesh that you might find on a cheap Halloween costume. The same mesh is also located on the little tiny ruffle armband.

Next, we have the blue material, which is much brighter than the stock photo made it appear. The blue material is opaque, and it's also very stretchy. The material is soft, but it feels like a swimsuit. It also kind of looks like a swimsuit. I can't speak for everyone, of course, but I don't like my lingerie looking and feeling like my swimsuits.

Then, there's the lace. The lace is sewn over the blue material in the front. It's durable, stretchy, and soft. Unfortunately, however, it just kind of looks like something grandma might wear.

The g-string is the same blue material with white trim. It has the same lace sewn over the blue. I do actually think that the g-string is cute, but it's definitely not sexy.

The tag attached to the babydoll recommends that you machine wash this item on warm, in the gentle cycle. Line dry the item when you're done with the washing machine. You should only use non-chlorine bleach when needed, and you should not wring or twist this item. Also, only iron it at a low temperature if you absolutely must.

Sizing:
This babydoll is available in three sizes: S, M, and L. I purchased a large, which is what I usually wear in Escante's lingerie. I should've sized down.

According to the size chart, a large should fit someone with the following measurements:
Cups: C-D
Bust: 36-38"
Waist: 32-34"
Hips: 34-36"

I wear a 34D bra, and have a 32" waist. My hips measure 40". Technically, this piece should fit me decent enough, but it just feels baggy. The underbust area is, unsurprisingly, a bit loose. I probably would've gotten a better fit I had sized down. Even with a proper fit, I'm almost positive that this piece wouldn't have been flattering.

When you try and decide what size to purchase, I'd recommend completely ignoring your waist and hip measurements. The babydoll flows outward, so your waist and hip measurements are kind of irrelevant. The g-string is also extremely stretchy, so it'll fit far above the size chart. I mean, I have 40" hips, and it fit me fine, with a few inches to spare.

In regards to the length? I am 5'6", and this covers most of my bum.
Experience
Design:
The idea behind the design is very cute, but the actual product just makes me feel ridiculous.

The design is open front... I love open front babydolls! It closes simply at the bust, with a simple plastic hook and eye closure, and the rest of the babydoll flows openly. It's easy to open and close the hook, so you shouldn't have to do much fumbling with it. There is also a little bit of ribbon that ties in a bow where the babydoll closes. You could use the ribbon to tie the piece closed, but the closure will not be very secure if you do.

The top of the babydoll is opaque, with the bright blue fabric and white lace overlays. I love that it's opaque, but I hate the color combination. The back of the babydoll has a sort of large keyhole right up towards the top. The keyhole idea is actually very nice -- it's just too bad the rest of the babydoll is so laughable.

The sleeves of the babydoll are poofy. They also have a white mesh ruffle trim. I found the sleeves to be very unflattering, as they made my shoulders look huge.

The bust of the babydoll does not offer you any real support. There is no padding, and there's no underwire. Basically, you're going to want to have either small breasts, or really perky breasts, to be able to pull this one off.

The lower half the babydoll is all just the white mesh. The white mesh is open in the center front, and there's also a slit going right up the center back. The back slit goes all the way up to the blue material -- so, technically, this piece is open in both the front and back.

The mesh kind of hangs awkwardly. It doesn't flow over my curves nicely, but instead it makes me feel wider than I am. Honestly, I hate how I look in this piece, as it's completely unflattering.

The real problem with this babydoll is that it just has so much going on -- the lace, the ruffles, the poofy sleeves, the bright coloring... it's just a lot to take in. It's also just way too frilly, and I usually love frilly!

The included g-string is your basic g-string. It's a blue triangle in the front, with white lace covering the blue material. The straps, and the border on the triangle are both white. The g-string does feature a little cotton pantyliner.

Packaging:
This arrived packaged on a black plastic hanger, with a plastic bag hanging over it. There was a hang tag attached to the babydoll.

Quality:
The edges on the lace are not finished, but other than that... quality is okay.
Follow-up commentary
I ended up returning this before I could snap a few pictures. I just didn't feel motivated to ever put this on again, because I really don't like how awful it made me feel.

This piece could've been very sexy, but it just didn't work...

    The only thing that could have made this review more useful is pictures! Still not deserving of a useful review though. I always wonder that too. I incorporate measurements of all toys and lingerie pieces as well as my measurements. Pictures are in all but one too. I provide as many details as I possibly can think of but still end up with "useful" ratings. I never know why either because they never tell me!

    A fantastic review though, I added this to my wishlist them promptly removed it after reading this. The colors were the main reason I added it. Thanks!
