extremely useful review
Lingerie is a simple way to add some spice to the bedroom, and it can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. This particular set looks more complicated, but is still very easy to use and work around while wearing it.

What's in the packaging?

The packaging itself was a simple plastic bag. Inside you'll find a coordinated shelf bra, thong, pair of stockings, and a pair of tassels.

Can you walk me through the set? What's the sizing like?

Between the product page and the actual product there was a discrepancy in sizing. The page currently shows this set as a medium, and the one I received was listed as a one size according to the tag. That being said, the one size from this brand should fit a size 2-8, with a cup size of A-C, bust/band size of 32-38", waist of 24-32", hips of 34-40", and weight of 88-154 pounds. I'm usually around a size 4 right now, bra size of 32B, about 27" around my waist at my belly button, 33" at the top of my hip bones, 38" around the widest part of my hips around my butt, with a 29" inseam, and I weigh around 115 pounds. I do believe that this set will actually fit the intended ranges comfortably, being possibly too loose on the lower end.

The bra:

The bra is a shelf type bra, which means it has underwire but no cups. The band is relatively straightforward, and rather than straps there's a silky ribbon attached to the band at the outside of each cup. There's plenty of stretch along the band, which also features 2 sets of hook and eyes, but no stretch to either of the 2 foot ribbon straps. When laid flat, the band measures just over 26" across, but stretches easily up to around 33". When laid on top of one of the bras I wear regularly, the band hangs over each end by a little more than half an inch.

The thong:

The base of the thong is your typical g-string type setup. The triangle measures about 4" across and 6" down, with the main waistband measuring 11" laying flat and stretching easily up to 21". Coming off of the outer edges of the top of the thong are ribbons just like the straps of the bra, measuring about 27" in length. Even if the sides of the elastic waistband dig in just a little bit visually, the ribbon bands will cover that and allow you to tie a distracting bow in the back. The other nice thing about this thong is that every part meant to be seen has a nice sheen and finish to it, with only the elastic you cover with the ribbon looking like your "typical cheap" elastic.

The stockings:

The stockings also feel like your typical, upper end, run of the mill stockings. The top has a 3" tall lace band, although no silicone strips inside for extra grip. The bow on the top is sewn in well enough that you'll probably end up just destroying everything trying to get it off, but you can probably hide a garter clip behind the part of it if you want to wear them all night and do any real amount of walking. It's a tighter knit fishnet, getting tighter at the top but not being completely closed. The widest part of my thighs are about 18" around and they stayed up well on me without falling down or cutting in. They landed towards my upper mid thigh.

The tassels:

At first glance, one might have expected these tassels to be a cheap throwaway accessory that you would use once or twice before they wouldn't work anymore. One would be pleasantly wrong. Circular, measuring about 2" across with the tassels being about 5" in length from the center of the circle, they come backed with a self adhesive foam. Make sure your skin is clean and dry (oils and lotions can make the adhesive useless), remove the backing, and apply. Even without a protective pad they didn't do any damage to nipple rings, and even days later these are still sticky to the touch, so save the backings if you want to use them again.

How do I care for this set?

The band of the bra has the usual indecipherable symbols on it, but use your best judgment. It's 92% polyester, 8% elastane, and should probably be hand-washed, unless you're feeling particularly risky.
Experience
The last lingerie item I got for review was such a bust that I was kind of nervous getting this one. But I love adventure, the style and color of this set are right up my alley. I could not believe how much I actually loved this set. Everything was comfortably loose, but stayed in place, even though it felt like it could actually accommodate a wide range of sizes (something almost no one size items can actually do).

Even the stockings stayed where I wanted them to, although they felt like they'd probably start falling down if I tried to wear them out or walk around half the night. The thong was so easy to keep on during sex and move to the side, which was great because the ribbon band was such a sexy accessory. The bra did a great job keeping the girls comfortably on display without feeling awkward at all thanks to the ribbon straps. And the tassels really surprised me. I thought for sure they were going to be a random cheap thing that would fall off halfway through having sex because the tassels were too heavy. I wish I had saved the backing on them, but even sitting completely exposed they're still sticky enough to use at least once more almost a week later. And that was after I wore them and then stuck them to random places on my husband's body after sex because I thought it was funny.

    Nice review! Burlesque dancers often use toupee tape as tassel adhesive once the original adhesive wears out.
