Cafe Corset with Black Lace Trim
I have read previous reviews and a few suggested going up a size it fits small... I am a 16-18 and order an 18-20. I think it isn't tight enough, kinda loose on me. next time I will just order my size. The side bars bent outward when I sat down, and couldn't get those to bend back correctly. I cut those out, now it looks good (slightly loose) those bars are plastic. I gave 50/50 star review. LOVE the style though!!

Slimming & Sexy, but not TOO Sexy
After reading other reviews, I bought a size up, and I'm glad I did. By the measuring tape, I'm a 38 DDD, but I wear a 40 DD, because I like the fit better. I'm 5'5", 183 lbs, and I normally wear 14/16 in tops/dresses.
The 18/20 corset fits PERFECTLY across my chest, so if you're really top heavy, be sure to upsize, which also helps if you're putting it on yourself. As another reviewer noted, the 3 hook&eye options all the way down really lets you customize your fit.
I was doubtful that I could wear it with jeans in public, but it looks much more scandalous on the model than it does in real life. The neckline does dip low, but there's more cup coverage than I expected, in a good way. If you want to sexy-it-up for private time, though there's not a pocket for them, you can put bra inserts (not included) at the bottom of the cups to get the model's look.
Chest looks great, and no back fat bra roll! I can't WAIT to put this on and hit the town!

SUPER STYLISH, SEXY AND SO SLIMMING!
I LOVE LB corsets so much that I purchased this one, as well 2 very similar ones at Christmas time. I went to my local LB store to try them on before I made the purchase, which turned out to be a good decision because I needed to go up a size to fit my 40DDD chest. (For reference, I am approx 5'7, 195lbs and wear a 14/16 in tops.) For this particular corset, as well as the others that I purchased, I bought an 18/20 and it fits perfectly. I love the fact that there are 3 rows of hook and eye closers in the back, just like a bra, so I can achieve that perfect, "custom" fit by clasping them on the tightest hooks at the bottom and loosening them as I work my way up around my chest, which is the widest part of my body. A lot of previous reviewers had mentioned that this corset is difficult to put on and requires assistance, but I respectfully disagree. Yes, there are a lot of hooks and it does take some practice, but it is no different than putting on a bra. If you clasp it in the front and then spin it around before putting your arms through the straps, it's relatively easy, especially with a little practice. It's a Corset, not a t-shirt, so it will take a bit of getting used to if you've never worn one before, but I have to say that when paired with jeans and a black moto jacket, it is super sexy and stylish, and soo slimming! The underwire cups provide great lift and support, while showing a bit of cleavage, but just enough to still look classy and not trashy! I truly cannot recommend this corset enough, especially with jeans and a jacket, but if you're large chested, I suggest going up a size to ensure a proper fit. Get ready to turn a lot of heads! :)

I really love how this looks and so does my husband. I bought it in my regular top size and it fits fine. It is definitely not a traditional corset because it doesn't hold you in or anything (I have a steel boned traditional corset). I find it very comfortable and plan to wear it out with friends with jeans and a black jacket or open fitted cardigan. I am very busty at a 42G and there is plenty of cleavage to go around, but with the jacket it's not too much, in my opinion. This will definitely spice up your wardrobe.
