Retro mesh cupless chemise by Coquette - review by Lucidity

Pin Me Up, Then Lay Me Down.

I love the Retro mesh cupless chemise. It's attractive, classic and will fit a variety of body types. Women with with hourglass figures who have a difficult time finding things to fit their breasts, waists and hips should be especially pleased with this little number.

extremely useful review
I know that some of you will roll your eyes, but believe me, it's a real problem for ladies with large breasts and small waists to find well fitting lingerie, especially without spending a fortune. When I spotted the Retro mesh cupless chemise, I was beyond excited; I could order a size that would fit my waist and not have to worry about it fitting my breasts. On top of that, it was very pin-up girlie and affordable. I couldn't wait.

I'm 5'5", my hips are 36", my waist is 24" and I wear a 32E bra. I ordered the chemise in a Small, which, according to Coquette would fit a dress size 4-6, cup size B, bust size (in) 34 - 36, waist (in) 26 - 28 and hips (in) 36 -38.

Construction:
Out of the box, I noticed that the whole piece is very soft, and the pinks are pale and true to the picture. The whole thing is made of black mesh which is stretchy and not itchy at all. There is nice pink lace under the bust (again, not itchy) and all the edges are finished with pink piping. The straps are made of black lace woven with pink ribbons and have small pink bows affixed under the armpits. There are larger satin bows between where bust area and on the front where the garters attach. There is pink piping going from the middle of the busts to the large bows at the bottoms. There is no boning. The garters are removable. The underwire cups are lace-lined with black lace as well as black mesh. I was surprised at the level of detail in this piece; it is very well made, especially for the price. If you really wanted to, I'm sure you could remove the bows, but they're not terribly garish or anything.

Fit:
This is a very flattering and chemise, though even at my height, it was short. I would suggest some thigh-highs, to go with this, as they not only complete the look, but keep it from riding up and exposing all the goods. I would say that the Coquette sizing chart is very accurate, because the waist on this is a little large for me. There's about an inch gap in each side--it's still cute, I guess I just wish it came in an XS.

Care:
I hand wash this, in cold water with mild soap and hang it to dry; just like any other delicate. Nothing special, no big deal. To store it, the only thing you have to be careful of is that you don't bend the underwire. If the larger bows get crushed, you can reshape them by just spraying them with plain water and flattening them back out.
Experience
My boyfriend loves this little number. We have a lot of fun playing pin-up girl and photographer in it. One thing I especially enjoy (aside from the comfort), is that I'm not afraid of actually having sex in this chemise. It can be washed and it's not so delicate that I fear it will fall apart if we get a little rough.
