The Daily Review: Mesh Corset [S]

This is my new reviewing assignment courtesy of EdenFantasys- thanks for another great item, guys! Today's piece is the Mesh Corset by lingerie maker, Coquette.

I'm really impressed with Coquette's quality because unlike many other lingerie makers, who tend to make their S or XS sizes ridiculously weird or for the "curvy" crowd, this firm goes out of their way to ensure that skinny chicks can look sexy, too.

The corset could be used in a variety of ways; it's excellent for the bedroom, or if you're into converting lingerie into everyday clothing, it also makes for a cute top. The set comes with a corset and detachable garters- if the user needs panties or whatever, they'll have to purchased separately.

When I received the corset, I realized it was a lot more pink than it was on the images on Eden. It's far from a light pink- it's more like a medium pink. If the user isn't a huge pink fan, it might be best to opt for another piece. The corset also has fringe on the top of the bust and on the bottom of the hem. It also three large bows- one black bow in the center, and one each on side of the hem. They are removable.

The corset and garters came in a large plastic bag; the garters came attached to the corset in a smaller plastic bag. The corset comes in three sizes:  S, M, and L. The size chart for Coquette is listed below:

I obviously purchased a Small; I should be a 4-6, I should have B cup, or a 34-36 inch bust, I should have a waist size of 26-28 inches and a hip measurement of 36-38 inches. Instead, I am a 00-1, I have an A cup, or a 32 inch bust, a waist size of 28 inches and a hip measurement of 35 inches. This corset actually runs small, which worked well for me, because it fit everything perfectly. However, if the buyer does fit the actual measurements, it would be best to order a size up. 

The corset is put together with hook and eye closures in the back, There are a total of 18 closures. The interior of the corset is lightly padded, enough so that cold nipples would not show through. However, since there is no underwire, it would be best for larger breasted women to wear a bra with this piece. It has plastic boning, so it's best to not bend this too much during use, or there's a chance that it could become warped. 

To clean the corset, it would be best to either hand wash and then let it out to air dry. Do not wash this in the machine, as it could get destroyed. 

Pros: Frilly, pink, runs small, removable bows
Cons: Kind of expensive for plastic boning, frilly, pink, runs small, digs into arm pits when sitting down. 

I feel that the corset deserves a total of 4 Stars.
