This Raspberry Fields gartered bustier was provided to me free of charge from EdenFantasys in exchange for an honest review.
This bustier comes in a simple plastic packaging. Two tags are attached. The first is a standard tag showing a model wearing it. The other mentions that a proceed of Coquette’s Spring/Summer collection will be going towards The Save the Ta-Tas Foundation to fund breast cancer research.
This bustier comes in sizes small, medium, large, xl and 1X/2X. I usually wear a size large in Coquette clothing so I chose a large in this. According to the Coquette size chart a large should fit someone who wears a size 12-14 with a C bust that is 38-40″, a 28-32″ waist and 38-42″ hips.
This bustier closes up the back with 17 eye hooks. It also offers four different closures width wise, like a bra may. The actual unstretched measurements of this bustier closed on the tights hooks is 28″ bust, 26″ underbust, 26″ waist and 29″ hips. On the widest hooks the unstretched measurements are 29″ bust, 28″ underbust, 28″ waist and 32″ hips. There are also non-detachable garters on the front of the bustier which are about 9″ long.
I wear a size large or 10-12 in women’s clothing with a size 36C bust. I had to wear it on the widest closure for it to fit comfortably. I’m not used to doing hooks up the back of a bustier. I’ve only had pull on, lace up or zip up ones in the past. To put it on I had to hook it all of the way up and pull it over my head. As with the Wetlook halter top dress, I found the cups of this bustier to be a bit large. However I would not size down on it because it definitely would not fit me in the waist if I did so.
Material Care & Information
This chemise is made of 90% nylon and 10% spandex. It is supposed to be hand washed and hung to dry.
Upon receiving this bustier I was surprised at how well made it appears to be. This bustier features padded cups, plastic boning, detailed stitching and beautiful lace. It’s not exactly perfect for my body though. It is designed to pull you in at the waist, which is nice. However I don’t have much of a waist so after wearing it for a while it caused my hips to jut out a bit unappealingly.
I wore it out while running errands with the matching panties. You can see how it looks above with just the panties, a pair of jeans over it or with jeans and a shrug sweater.
I also wear a C cup and would say that the cups on this would work better for a D. I didn’t feel like I was completely filling them out, even when after adjusting the tie at the neck. That’s another issue. I wish that this closed with something a bit sturdier. The string that you tie at your neck to keep this up seems to be a bit flimsy in comparison to the rest of the piece.
All in all I find this bustier to be beautiful but not perfect for my body type. I think that it would look great on someone who is a cup size larger than me with a smaller waist.
