More Like A Tank Top Than A Chemise

So... they call this a chemise? Really..? This item is incredibly short, to the point that it fits more like a tank top on my 5'6" frame.

On top of the short length, it's just not high quality. The material feels cheap, and the edges on the chemise are not finished. Even at $14.99, it's not worth it for me. If you're extremely petite, maybe you can make it work. Otherwise..well, I'd recommend spending your hard earned money on something else.

extremely useful review
I had a feeling that this chemise would fit me awkwardly, but for $14.99? I couldn't pass it up. There was something about the simplicity of it that called my name. The reality of this piece, however, was nothing more than a disappointment.

The Basics:
This "chemise" is made by Dreamgirl. The packaging states that it was made in Taiwan.

It's available in two color combinations; black and iris, and hot pink and black. I purchased the black and iris.

Material and Care:
The product page states that this is made out of Nylon, but I can't really tell you if that's accurate. You see, both the chemise and thong had no tags, and the packaging did not state what the item is made out of. So... I'm just going to assume that Nylon is accurate.

At first glance, the material of the chemise appears almost opaque. As you stretch it, however, it becomes sheer. This is because the material is basically a very fine mesh. That being said, the material is not super sheer, and the dark color does help to provide some coverage. Still, your nipples will almost definitely show through the thin material.

The material is soft, and it doesn't irritate my skin at all. It is also very stretchy.

As for caring for this item? The packaging also did not mention any care instructions. For this reason, I'm going to assume that it's best to hand wash this in cold water, and then allow it to line dry.

Sizing:
According to the packaging, one size fits most is said to fit individuals that weigh between 90 and 160lbs. The information on Eden Fantasy's size chart differs slightly from that. For instance, the size chart on the website says that it should fit from 60 to 160lbs.

The website also states that it should fit the following measurements:
Cups: B-C
Bust: 32-38"
Waist: 24-32"
Hip: 34-40"

I typically wear a large C/small D cup. I have a 32" waist, and 40" hips. I expected this item to fit me snugly, but I was pretty sure that I could make it work for me.

Truthfully, this item DOES fit me -- though I can't imagine it fitting anyone larger. Honestly, I'm probably pushing it, as well, as this item is just not flattering on my body.

I think that this "chemise" will look best on individuals who are very petite.

Length wise, this chemise is very short. It measures 17" from the very top of the chemise (not the straps; the top of the bust portion) to the bottom hemline.

Design:
This item is advertised as a chemise, but it fits more like a tank top. I can't imagine this fitting like a chemise should even on the shortest of individuals.

The chemise appears quite simple from the front, being primarily solid with just a small decorate bow at the top. The decorative bow is not meant to be removable.

When you turn around, however, your lover will be met with a surprise as you reveal the peekaboo style open back. The center of the back is open, being only held together with the iris colored ribbon, which does up the back of the "chemise" in a crisscross sort of pattern. At the very top, the ribbon is tied into a bow. The bow is able to be untied, so you can adjust the ribbon. The drawback to the ribbon being able to be untied is that it doesn't look very neat.

The shoulder straps on the chemise are thick, at 2.5" wide. The thickness of the straps makes them comfortable to wear. Overall the straps are nice and sturdy, though unfortunately they are not adjustable. They have a floral lace pattern going up them. The lace pattern continues all the way down the back, framing the peekaboo center panel.

The bottom hemline of the chemise is sort of wavy. I think it adds a hint of playfulness to the chemise.

The included thong is in black, and features a floral lace pattern that matches the lace on the chemise. The thong also features a cotton pantyliner that is only sewn on one side.

Packaging:
This item comes packaged in a cardboard envelope that features photographs of the model on both the front and back. Minimal information is provided on the packaging.

Quality:
I am not impressed with the quality of this item. It feels extremely cheap, and unbelievably thin. I have a feeling that it will get ruined quickly.

The edges on the top of the chemise are also disappointing, as they don't appear to be finished. I imagine that the edges will fray very quickly.
Follow-up commentary
I ended up returning this. It's cute, but it just doesn't flatter my body type.

If you're petite and on the short side, you might like this. For me, though? This piece was a disaster.
