I love the design but it runs VERY SMALL, will return and get next size up
so this is the only piece of lingerie that i own, and it's actually the first thing like this i've ever even worn. so i'm not super experienced, but this piece makes me want to be ?? look, this baby is HOT!! the underwire is very firm and supportive & the middle piece lays perfectly flat on my sternum, which makes my boobs look freakin amazing. the ribs are extremely flexible, so bending over is natural (however if you're sitting or even slightly slouched it'll become uncomfortable fairly quickly). also the mesh/lace cups feel soooo nice! i was worried the material would itch or feel rough, but that's really not the case. another thing i really love is the mix of textures; the velvet band in the middle provides an interesting break against the mesh, and i love the fancy-ness in the center. the only thing i didn't like very much is the length of the clips for the garter. for me they were too long in the front and too short in the back. i have a very big/round booty, so even with the bands at their longest i had to pull my thigh highs all the way up to the bottom of my butt cheeks. even then i was worried the bands were pulled too tight. since my thigh highs were pulled so far up, this also meant for me that the front clasps were super loose, even when pulled at their tightest. that's literally the only critique i have! and even still, that's not enough to make me want to return the item. overall - this was the first thing i ever ordered and i feel like i struck gold. i looove it, and it makes me excited to try out more!
