This dress is GORGEOUS! The material is stretchy, but form fitting. I have a 42" chest, and also pad for breasts. While the dress fits tightly, the stretch in the material allows me to add my breasts without any discomfort or feeling like I will bust a seam. Definitely follow the sizing guide to order (I ordered a size 16 per sizing guide, and it is perfect).
So since this is my first corset I can’t really compare it to anything, but it’s extremely comfortable and the ribbon is nice and strong. The material is thin, breathable and soft on the skin. It’s plastic boned rather than steel boned but it’s fab. Oh and customer service here is EXCELLENT. thank you Drag Queen Closet!
