Fashion Review: Dominate Him in Pinstripes
I recently received the super sexy Executive sweet bustier with hose courtesy of EdenFantasys. Being that I’m normally unintentionally celibate I enjoy ordering lingerie that can be worn out when paired with other pieces. My intention was to get this to wear to an event next month, either with black jeans or black dress pants.
The executive sweet bustier with hose comes with a pair of attached garters, a pair of thigh highs and a matching thong. The outfit arrived in a clear plastic bag with a description of the contained bustier on it. The bustier features underwire and plastic boning.
For reference I am a size 10-12 with a 36C or 38C cup (depending on the brand). I ordered the large. According to the Escante Size Chart a large will fit someone who is a size 10-14, with a C or D cup and the following measurements, 36-38″ bust, 32-34″ waist and 34-36″ hips who weighs from 140-160lbs. As I’m on the upper end of those measurements I probably would have opted for an XL if one were offered but it’s only available in sizes small, medium or large. (Again I have to mention that I do not give my specific weight or measurements due to past and present disordered eating issues). Laid flat but laced the actual measurements that I was able to take were 26-24-26. I was easily able to pull and stretch those to 32-30-32.
The day that I received this I automatically had to put it on. It’s so hot! I did have a bit of difficulty getting it on. I don’t really have a waist (that’s not an insult to myself, I have more of straight frame). I also have moderate scoliosis. It makes it a bit uncomfortable to try to tie, zip and adjust it while on. I found that the best way to do so (for me) was to lace it up, leave the side zipped and then pull it over my head. As you can see from the above photo, for me to wear this bustier as is I would have to leave a gap in the middle. It comes with two sets of ties that are meant to tie from either end and then meet in the middle. I was a bit discouraged but I do know how I’m built. At this point I decided that I needed longer ties and would have to put off taking proper photos for another day.
A few days later was watching The Client List movie with a friend while enjoying some wine slushies. When it got to the outfit montage scene I immediately remembered the bustier and had to put it on. I had found an extra pair of black shoelaces lying around my house and used those to fill in the middle space (as seen above). I eventually intend on buying very long strings that I can lace completely from top to bottom. And then I was in love. This is definitely a hot little number.
Fueled by wine and the illusion of now having a waist I decided that I could not take this off and once the film was over I would go out. I paired it with some dark blue jeans. I would have worn black but couldn’t recall where I’d left them. Since I’d decided to wear it out I had to decide, the enclosed thong or a pair of larger black panties. I went with the latter because I was feeling bloated. However if you think that you may get lucky I highly recommend opting for the thong as you are otherwise presented with a Bridget Jones type situation.
The thong measures 8″ high in length from top to bottom, both front and back (a total of 16″ altogether). The band of the thong measures about 27″ unstretched but easily stretches to at least 40″. The crotch part of the thong measures 2″ wide.
Both the bustier and the thong consist of 97% cotton and 3% elastane. The reverse side of the tag on the bustier gives the following laundering information: machine wash gentle cycle, wash separately with non chlorine bleach, do not wring or twist, line dry, iron on lowest temperature.
The hose came in a simple plastic packaging which I was unable to photograph because of the reflection of the packaging. I’d say the less said about them the better. They are very plain. There is no doubt that I have large thighs that aren’t exactly flattered by these types of tights (I usually only wear garters over full fishnets and attach them for effect). I did try one on nonetheless but I’m not posting a photo as it was incredibly unflattering. I was able to stretch one up to about right above my knee. These would probably due for a smaller woman but I’d still recommend picking up some dressier, more sturdy tights to pair with this outfit anyway.
Instead I would order any of the below hose.
After I was ready and about to do my hair and makeup I was trying to figure out why my breasts weren’t showing the type of cleavage on the tag. I don’t have breast implants or anything but they are a decent size that work for my frame. It was then that i realized that the top has actual adjustable bra straps. I adjusted them and came away with the oomph that I was looking for. Sorry for forgetting to get a photo of that after.
All in all I highly recommend buying the Executive sweet bustier with hose. It not only looks great on and makes you feel sexy but it also works. I hit a dive bar in it (wearing a small cardigan over it because I’m somewhat modest and felt naked in the back) and men definitely dug it.
