The Daily Review: Pink License to Kill Bustier [S]

Recently, I bought way too much lingerie and body care products. I figured that I'm pretty happy with my sex toy collection for the time being, so I needed to focus on expanding my collection of intimate items instead. One of my new items is the pink License to Kill Bustier that I bought from the shop I trust.

The set comes with a corset and a g-string. The corset lacks cups, so this is something to bear in mind if the wearer absolutely needs support for breasts. Some would feel that this would only be appropriate for a private situation, but this could also work well for a play party or kink oriented situation. 

It could also be worn in a typical public setting, if paired with either jeans or skirt (or really, whatever people wear on their butts). I actually wore this for a while when I went to school and it was insanely comfortable. 

On Eden, it's available in sizes S, M, L, XL, 1X/2X, and 3X/4X. It comes in two different color options; I bought the fuscia/ black option, but it is also available in a solid black option as well. 

The corset has a lot of frills and bows, and it also strapless. It does not come with garter attachments and it does not offer a place to attach garters. It has plastic boning.

The corset and the thong came packaged in a plastic hanger case, with a cardboard picture of the model displaying the outfit from the front and back.

The corset and the thong is made of 90% nylon and 10% spandex. On both tags, they both state to hand wash the garments cold, not to bleach or iron the garments, and that the garments must be line dried. I would recommend against washing or drying the corset and the thong in the machine, so that the garments won't shrink or become damaged.

According to Seven 'til Midnight, which is the company that made this, I should be a size 2-4, I should have a 32- 34 Bust/ A Cup, a waist size of 24- 26 inches, and a hip size of 34- 36 inches. 

I  fit almost all of these parameters; My measurements are as followed; I wear a size 00-1; I have a 32 inch bust, or a 32A cup bra size, I have a 28 inch waist and a hip size of 33 inches. I also have a 13" long torso. 

I've placed the complete sizing chart above to help guide those interested in their size, according to Seven 'Til Midnight. 

Based on these measurements, it should fit the body the way a corset should fit- it should slightly minimize the breasts, hold in the tummy and sides, and taper off to the hips. It did just that for everything; however, because of my slightly pudgy belly, it showed off ever so slightly when viewed from the side. That is not the fault of the corset; however, because my waist was too large to begin with. 

The specific measurements go as followed- from the center of the corset, the top of the corset to the bottom hem is 13", and the hem is about an 1 1/2"; when laid out completely, the corset is a total of 23" long; the front is a total of 12", and the back is 11" (this is measured with the corset closed on first set of hook and eye closures). Since there are no cups provided, I can't give cup measurements. 

There are 17 eyes, with a total of three rows of hook and eye closures. For me, I found that corset was most comfortable on the third set of closures (this is most innermost set of closures.) If you decide to use the last set of the closures, you can take 2 1/2 inches off the whole corset. 

The g- string is a solid pink. The measurements for the thong are as followed: the top of the thong is 5", and from top the bottom is 6". When not stretched, the thong is 12 1/2"; when stretched, it can reach a total 15".

What did you think of the set?
It's a beautiful piece that displays the body well, without constricting it to the point of pain. This is definitely not meant for training, but it's an excellent option for wearing in an a casual intimate setting or out in public, depending on how you decide to dress this up.

When I bought this, I was worried the plastic boning was going to warp because my stomach was slightly to big. I found that after wearing it, my stomach didn't cause it any issues. I was cautious when I was sitting down not to slouch too much, so that it wouldn't warp. After messing with the boning, I found that applying moderate amount of pressure did change the shape of the boning, but it could be bent back into its original shape. I did experience a mild annoying discomfort when I bent over to pick something up.

The fringe was also very nice as well. It looks itchy in the pictures, but it didn't cause me any discomfort whatsoever. It didn't irritate my skin and it made for a very fun detail to the corset. 

I don't have large boobs, so support isn't something I worry about. The shape of corset encourages the flattening the front, including breasts, but it doesn't completely hinder them from existing. The shape and the size of the breasts will be moderately flattened, but will still appear in the silhouette of the corset.

I also like the thong a lot as well. The panty liner was where it was supposed to be, and there was enough material that it wasn't shifting around during wear, which is an issue that I have when I wear narrower thongs.

I found that I like that this a lot. It's incredibly comfortable, and it's beautiful. It's also very feminine, which I'm a big fan of. I'm pleased to note that this fits my small breasts perfectly- I usually have an issue with lingerie giving me too much chest room. Also, when I sat down, the top of the corset didn't dig into my arm pits. It sat right at my sides, and it didn't ride up.

Pros: Flattering fit, not constrictive, excellent for intimate wear or everyday use
Cons: Plastic boning warps when pressure is applied

I'll reward this 4 Stars.
