Delicate and beautiful, “wiggle” carefully!
Exactly one week since Savage launched and it's here! I bought this item with tremendous excitement as soon as the line launched. On the website there was not a size chart that allowed customers to equate their measurements with letter sizing (S-XL, 1X-3X) and there still isn't on May 18, 2018 but I bought this corset anyway, following the statement that underwear follows the "standard sizing" and a 1X corresponds with an XL. I wasn't missing out on this item so I thought "we'll see" and I prayed it would fit. I am a size 14/16 (L/XL) in clothes and underwear with a 38DD bust. As an "in betweenie" (between straight sizes and plus), I took my chances with prayers that it fit so that I could buy the red one. Like another piece of lingerie marked with letter sizing (S-XL) from this line, this item fits small. In the item description the instructions say "wiggle it on" which made me nervous about how much stretch is in the fabric as most teddies have a bra closure at the top for one to open when taking it on and off. Of course, this does not. The fabric is super delicate and there is a medium skintoned illusion mesh between the colored lace panels. That mesh also DOESN'T HAVE ANY GIVE. When putting the item on, the bodice was small (like that for a 10-12) and I was terribly afraid that if I "wiggled" any more, I would rip this to pieces, especially because of the delicate mesh. :( The black mesh fabric at the back however has a semi-decent stretch (about 3/4 inch of give). This is a gorgeous piece of lingerie and has a edgy, feminine flare. The cups would probably fit a D cup (or small DD) at best. It's edgy and feminine and looks expensive in person. A very beautiful piece. As I said in a different review, I really want to find items in my true size. The Savage x Fenty team needs to publish a COMPREHENSIVE SIZE CHART (not just one for bra measurements) to avoid having customers suffering from similar confusion and upset when buying their items across their range. I hope this comes out for plus sizes soon! We all deserve to shop the same items and have them fit us, not be limited to a particular range :)
