This review is from: Muka Black Underbust Fashion Corset With Shoulder Straps, Valentine's Gift Idea (Apparel)
Package arrived unexpectedly, as the order never updated from "Has left facility and is in transit.", did arrive promptly (4th day from order), but when it arrived, my disappointment increased more and more.
First, it's flimsy. For something that lists at $85, this thing is hardly worth $20, and probably cost only a few dollars to make. The "Faux leather" is a glued on, super thin cheap product with a spandex/polyester blend underneath, which is a very low thread count and fairly uncomfortable against the skin. The next hurdle was the sizing. First of all, if you are going to get this, note that the sizing isn't exact. Going for 2-3 inches under your waist size will lead you wrong. If you are fairly muscular, go a size up from what the chart says. If you are a more voluptuous body type, however, stick with the chart. If you are all skin and bones, also go up TO your waist size. Technically, my waist size fit me at an XS, and even then, I knew an XS would be too small. The small still left enough of a back to require a modesty panel. The corset looks good, when worn, but the image is misleading. There is NO way the corset in the image has that kind of a curve to the waist without clips being applied. On the body, and off the body, it's fairly straight up and down with very little curve to it. It does fit awkwardly over the belly if you are muscular or a thin build. You will never get it to be quite right on the lower portion. And to top it off, the laces are cheap ribbon, and way too short. You are going to want to substitute with some nylon boot strings. This is a cheap "fashion" corset masquerading as a high priced item. The listed price on Amazon at $27 is about right, but even so, you can get high quality corsets from online vendors in europe for cheaper than the list price, and they will be far and away better quality. The sad part, is that they shipped from Britain and got through customs faster than this item shipped across the US.
As for the free thong that was thrown in... Just throw it away. It's cheap garbage, made of coarse materials and has absolutely no worth to anyone except for bored housewives that are going to wear it once before bed. It's not like it was a selling point of the product, but if you are considering the addition to be a point for the product, prepare to be contradicted. If anything, the laziness made the product look worse. I imagine they had no option but to give those away.
As for the lack of return or refund policy, this is rare with this kind of item. Almost every corset store has a 60 return policy, because sizing these things is not a science, and each corset fits each body type very differently.
Overall, you get what you pay for. If you paid list price, I feel pretty bad for you. Moral of the story: Buy elsewhere. The product only earned a 3-star rating for being discounted to $27 at the time of purchase.
