Love the top, but...
on March 31, 2012
I actually bought several tops at the same time from this manufacturer (Patty Boutique), so you may see similar comments from me in more than one place since no one else has added reviews =)
I love this top, I feel sexy and curvy wearing it, and it's exactly what the picture shows. I can't wait to go out and show it off! However, some FYIs for potential buyers:
-the material is thin. I could see a suggestive outline of my breasts and cleavage *through* the front while I was standing in front of a mirror with only a single 60 watt bulb for light. It's fine for a night out in dimly-lit clubs, but I wouldn't recommend it for highly-lit places unless you're into that sort of thing.
-the sizing is likely juniors. I normally wear a large in women's (small waist, but big breasts), but the top is tight-fitting across my entire torso area. It's as if I'm wearing a medium. That may be part of the cause for the slight-transparency, actually. Had I known the fit, I would have ordered one size up for comfort.
-the manufacturer is in Hong Kong, so it will take a few weeks to arrive. No big deal to me, but you should order well in advance of the event you plan to wear this to.
-the corset string is... how do I explain it... it's not thick like a real corset string, but instead, designed to complement the top. It's a similar weave as a real corset string, but at the same time it feels flimsy, like it will break or fray after a wearing or washing. At least it's not ribbon though, right? I plan to buy replacements just in case though.
Overall, A+ and despite a few concerns, I still highly recommend this!
