After seeing the Fantasies In Lace website I couldn’t resist placing a little order as I found a Strapless Corset that was way too cheap and way too pretty not to get my hands on. Seeing as I required shipping across the ocean I decided to make sure the order was substantial enough to justify the shipping costs, so I added some Leg Avenue pieces too. 😉
The Strapless Corset is easy to put on yourself and adjusting the waist is just as easy. I really like the softness of the fabric and that adds to the experience seeing as this is a low-budget corset. I also wear this in combination with a pair of jeans to go out, the Chinese jacquard gives it a chic look (the garters are detachable, by the way). The matching g-string is really tiny and the fit is not perfect, because of the thickness of the fabric. Keep in mind the experience of wearing this kind of corset and a real high-end corset can’t be compared!
The Cherry Ruffle Camisole (Leg Avenue) looks so girly, playful and sexy (and it works in the bedroom). The matching g-string is made out of the same fabric as the camisole and has a great fit. I did have some trouble getting in to this one though (I needed help — there’s no video footage of this haha) — but hey, I don’t recommend this set to singles anyway. 😉
My favorites were the black mesh ruffle bra and boy shorts, also from Leg Avenue. The black see-trough fabric makes the set very sexy and the pink details on both the bra and the boyshort add a playful touch. The fit of the bra is great, although it obviously doesnâ€™t give a lot of support (honestly, that’s not what you’re looking for with this, right?). If youâ€™re looking for a bedroom lingerie set I really recommend this one, itâ€™s great value for money!
Don’t be scared to order from Fantasies In Lace — they’re not a gigantic retailer, but that has some positive aspects too. Pro’s: shipping was superfast, packaging was perfect, there’s personal assistance when ordering (I got a personal e-mail after my order, and my sizes were reviewed by the people at FIL!) and prices are competitive. The con’s: shipping across the ocean isn’t cheap, brand names aren’t always visible (I was surprised the black mesh was actually Leg Avenue) and they’re not the cheapest in the industry either.
A positive experience — more to follow! 😉
