It isn't everyday that I get to do a product review with an item that makes my husband drop his lunchbox at the door when he sees me in it.
But, that is what happened when I got the chance to do a product review of a Corset Top from CorsetChick.com. I kept this product review a "secret" and then hid it so he wouldn't know what it was until I had a chance to surprise him in it.

Please note, this is NOT ME, but one of the models of the site showing one of their corsets.
The review I did was for the Black Sweetheart Shape Corset which is available on their site for $25.99. You can see that most of their corsets are all priced pretty reasonably at under $30 each.
For the most part I was really impressed with the corset. Truthfully, I actually do love it. I only had an issue or two with it, but nothing that can't be overcome with some practice.
Like any corset, I was expecting that it would be hard to button, but it really wasn't. I did try to start at the bottom and work up, but the bottom hook would keep coming undone, so I learned quickly to go from top to bottom, which worked very well. Also, they let you know right up front that these corsets run a little smaller than what your normal size would be, so you should order accordingly. Swallow your pride ladies (or gents) and order a big size or two up, you'll be glad that you did. The only issue that I had with that was, I did order about two sizes bigger, but doing that, that means the "chest area" is bigger to, and well, I couldn't fill out the cup, lol. Not since I lost all the weight that I have in the past year.
But, that is okay, because the corset fit the way it was suppose to fit on the sides and front. I could breath in it. It gave me some shape (instead of round, lol) and though at first I thought I looked a little goofy, I did start to think that I looked really good in it. I plan on wearing it numerous times in the future.
It also came with a bonus of a g-string. Only problem with ordering the bigger size, the g-string is the bigger size as well, and was way to big for me, so I had to do a little fiddling around with it, but got it to work. Don't get me wrong, I love that it came with a matching g-string (completes the outfit), but it would be nice if they offered you the chance to order a different size in the g-string, but I can see why they aren't able to as it would probably get quite confusing trying to keep everything straight.
Product Info on one I reviewed:
The corset that I reviewed is available in XS all the way up through 8X, and before you say "oh my gosh, how big that 8x must be" trust me, it won't be, remember they run smaller. An 8X is the equivalent of a 22 dress size in US measurements. Swallow the pride and order a size bigger. You will be glad that you did.
My corset has the steel busk closures in the front and lace closures in the back (very comfortable). They use lightweight material to make it and it was about 15" long with it cut just a little shorter in back, which helps with the comfort.
My final opinion is that I really do love this and plan on keeping and wearing it for a long time to come. As for my husband's opinion, well you probably already know how much he liked seeing me in it. He gives it two thumbs up and pesters me to put it on and model it for him. So, I think the corset was both for myself and him as he is enjoying seeing me in it as well.
Now that you know one of the items that is available at CorsetChick.com, why don't you run on over to their site and check them out. They have everything from Corsets, lingerie, sleepwear, shapewear, shoes, boots, costumes and more. They offer free shipping on orders over $80 and also have a lot of items on clearance and on sale, and they have everything from the smaller sizes to plus sizes.
I am sure that you will be able to find something there that you would really love!
