Time To Play Shelf Bra & G-String Set

All in all, the Time to Play Shelf Bra and G-String Set by Charm Wear is durable and adorable. My husband loves the way it looks on me and despite the fit issues, it is comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. It can be a bit difficult to clean, but it doesn't snag on rough hands and is easy and quick to put on.

What Is This?

The Time to Play lingerie set by Charm Wear arrived in the typical discreet box, packaged in a clear bag with no information on it. Fresh out of the package the lingerie set has no tags on it and is ready to be washed and worn. It is a two-piece shelf bra and g-string set. The straps are sewn on to the bra with little tabs sticking out beneath the stitching (as you can see in the picture below). I foresee issues with this, but we shall see in my 2-month follow-up review. The bows on the bra are secure and I do not worry about them as I have with other sets I've worn in the past.

The set is made out of a polyester, spandex blend and is not in the least bit transparent. It has a lot of stretch to it and the band is sewed in a way that it has, even more, stretch potential. The stretch helps this piece achieve the 'one size fits most' claim, we will talk more about this later.

How Does It Fit?

The Time to Play shelf bra and panty set boasts that one size fits most. I am a petite sized female, 5'3 in height with a 34 B cup size, and a 36-inch waist. The g-string fit decently, if not a little too high for my taste. It slipped around a bit but otherwise was a decent fit for a 'one size.' The bra was a bit bigger than anticipated and I did not appreciate the attempt at 'one size' underwire. The cups are half cups, causing your nipples to peek out when it is worn. I had a different experience. Considering the design of the bra, attempting to make it one size fits most, my breasts slipped around in the cups more often than not and my nipples only peeked out on occasion.

Eden's guide for one size fits most is below. As you can see, my breasts are a little on the small side for this piece and my hips fall just at the small end of the sizing guide. I have no doubt that this set would be better for women who are not as petite.

Bust 36 - 40½
Waist 27½ - 31½
Hip 38½ - 43½

How Do You Care For It?

The material is smooth and feels nice against the skin. My husband commented on how it didn't catch on his calluses like most slippery material. I would be careful not to snag the material. Considering the fashion in which the straps are connected, I highly recommend hand washing this set in warm water and mild soap and laying dry to flat. Do not use bleach on this set as it could break down the elasticity. You could throw the set in the washer and dry flat but I fear that this would put unnecessary stress on the stitches. Do not put this set in the dryer, ever. The dryer could cause the polyester to melt and also poses a risk to breaking down the elasticity.
Follow-up commentary
This set has kind of fallen to the bottom of my lingerie drawer. While it still is a great set and the husband adores the way it looks, I can't get over the size of the bottoms. I feel like one day I will search out a g-string that fits me better and I am comfortable wearing with the top.
