Beautiful garment for the price!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seven Til Midnight Women's Victorian Lace Bustier (Apparel)
This is a really great looking high quality item for the price. Unfortunately I need to send it back because I got the wrong size but I will be buying another. I am 5'5" 150lbs, 36B, and I normally wear a size 8. Based on some of the reviews I bought a large and was a little worried that it would be too small, but I will have to go down to a medium. If the cups were smaller I would probably keep the large since the rest of the bodice looks pretty good when I use the tightest clasps. The cups are just huge though. I think Cs would probably be sufficient to keep the top from looking weird and empty but still wouldn't fill them out all that well. I hope the medium has considerably smaller cups and isn't too tight in other areas (I have a 29 inch waist--please comment if you are similarly sized and have experience with the medium). This garment is definitely not sturdy enough to pull you in if it is too tight so you have to get exactly the right fit or the boning will fold and bend in unflattering ways. I'm only giving this 4 stars because the fit won't work for everyone and it favors busty ladies. Other than that it's perfect. I'm giving it another try because its definitely something I want to have.
Update: Bought the medium. Cups fit perfectly. It's a tad too tight at the bottom edge but the ruffle hides that nicely.
