I purchased this item in an offer. I was rather impressed to see a leather garment like this on Lovehoney, and as a fan of waspies, I thought why not.
I decided to go for the 12-14, as currently my waist is within that range. When arrived the item appeared to be the correct size. The leather work actually appeared to be put together well, with extra elastic support on the underside to help retain shape.
The centre front panel is made up of leather pieces, which are curved and boned, to accentuate ones curves. These boned leather pieces are actually a lot sturdier than some plastic boning found within waspies. The leather is soft feeling and has a very authentic feel about it.
Now, my main issue with this waspie is the following: The lacing.
While the eyelets are punctured into the main garment firmly, the actually rope lacing is a pain in the arse as it is far too short. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, as I'd just unlace the item. However, the lacing has been sealed together. Unable to wiggle it over my boobs or hips, I had to cut the lacing and loosen it.
Once the item was around my waist, it was easy to thread up and fitted my frame well, without over-tightening (there was less than a centimetre-gap in the centre of my back, just enough to show-off the corset lace detailing).
The item really looked nice on. Not tacky at all. But there was one last minor problem and that was that the black leather left marks on my white shirt. Maybe it's my fault, but I love being able to wear a waspie over tops as well as under. Even when wearing the item purely on skin, I was left with black marks over my body.
While I had two minor issues with the item, I still like the piece and feel that it is a good item. Just take note that you probably will need to cut the lacing and maybe replace it, and that it can mark your body/clothes the first few wears. I'm still interested in seeing what the other items from this range are like, particularly now as I feel this item is best left under clothing and not worn above shirts, which it can permanently stain.
- It's shape, good leather, well made.
- Lacing issues, can stain skin and clothing.
- Bottom line
- Less tacky than many leather lingerie items out there.
