My customers and I often engage in conversations that run the gamut from bras to baseball, and prior to my trip to Curves, one of the comments I heard frequently centered on the dearth of quality, tasteful lingerie in our area. Adult shops often sell over-priced outfits in a pitiable range of sizes, most of which are not conducive to ladies with fuller figures or fuller busts. As a result, I came prepared to scope out the offerings at Curves, and iCollection was one of the many manufacturers which impressed me. I already reviewed their satin robes, but today I want to focus on a more traditional lingerie piece: the corset!
Like my customers, I have tried corsets in adult stores before and been disappointed by the sizing as well as how the cheap, flexible boning would create awkward bumps along the ribcage and stomach. Nothing deflates feeling sexy faster than giant, oddly placed lumps on your stomach. Consequently, I went into the review skeptical of whether I would like the product.
Originally, I anticipated the corsets would reflect band measurement as the sizes ran 32, 34, 36, 38, etc., but I discovered the sizing is closer to your bust measurement. For the review, I tried both a 38 and 40. The 38 cinched my waist significantly more, but my breast tissue pushed upward in a way that Renaissance barmaids would love. However, the incredible cleavage was a bit too much for me to post on the blog, and I feel like it would limit the wear of the corset. Ultimately, I loved the fit of the 40 more because I could wear it alone or as part of a regular outfit.
