Lingerie Review: Sweet & Short Chemise
Over the summer I purchased this Floral lace mini dress with bow by Music Legs from EdenFantasys. At the time I felt like it was a huge departure for me style wise. It’s frilly and lacy but most of all it’s white. I’ve owned white and cream slips that I’ve slept in over the years and occasionally a sweater but I’m not a big white girl. As someone who has always had body image issues I have equated white with fat. So despite the great price on this piece I was worried prior to its arrival.
However when I opened it I totally fell for it.
It was packaged simply. The front and back cover feature a model wearing the piece, as well as sizing and care info.
This piece is labeled a one size fits most. According to the packaging it should fit someone who is from 5″ to 5’10″ tall and from 100-175lbs. This seems accurate to me. I took the following measurements (unstretched-stretched): bust 28-38″, high waist at ribbon 26-34″, hips 38-46″ and the length of the piece is 22″. The ribbon that ties at the neck measures 16.5″ in length and the ribbon at the waist is also 16.5″. The matching thong measures 7″ long and the crotch is from .5-2″ wide from the smallest to the widest point. I love how this fits. That includes the thong as well, which is totally unusual for me. I am a size 10-12 or large in clothing with a 36C bust. (as per usual, no exact measurements because of my ED history)
I really can’t gush enough about how much I adore this lingerie. Despite my early misgivings I was completely wrong. I don’t feel fat at all in this. I feel super sweet and sexy. Plus the trim at the top of the bust and the ribbon ties are darling. It’s also very comfortable and I’ve even slept in it. The thong is so comfy (compared to similar lacy thongs I’ve owned) that I’ve paired it with other outfits and neglige.
It is made of elastic and polyamid, excluding the trim. The instructions are to wash deep colors separately and keep it away from fire. I have washed it in the washing machine without any damage. I lay it out to dry afterward.
Due to the sheer fabric of the set I wore a cream slip skirt on the bottom and covered my chest. When I wear it as intended (sans slip) the bottom hits right at the bottom of my butt. I have worn this set often and until the arrival of my Mesh peek-a-boo chemise by Leg Avenue it was my favorite, go to set, now it takes second place.
Definitely a must buy!
