I am a lingerie nut and always looking for new pieces to add to my collection whether it be a piece to wear to feel sexy or something to wear to turn my partner on. I get lucky when I can feel sexy and turn my man on at the same time. So talking to the lovely ladies over at Burlesque Toy Shop I was wanting to try out some new lingerie and I was sent out the License to Thrill Bustier in all black. I have seen it around on other sites that have it in solid black as well as pink and black. You can never have enough black in your lingerie collection especially when you are going for that classy elegant look. I was happy when I received my bustier especially since I was worried about it fitting right or that it would be too small even though I ordered it in 3X/4X. Seven Til' Midnight items are usually known to run small in my experience so I order the biggest size available. You can get the License To Thrill Bustier in sizes SM-3X/4X so no matter your size you can get this bustier and feel sexy. The License To Thrill Bustier is a great add to your lingerie collection especially if you are looking to do a Boudoir Photo Shoot. Know that even though I mentioned having issues with Seven Til' Midnight items running small this was the complete opposite I should have ordered a size down.
There is a lot of little details that you will find in this bustier that you could easily overlook since this piece is all black but they are there and complete this piece. I will give you some measurements on a few things momentarily. Please not these are measurements I took myself an are not from Seven Til' Midnight nor from Burlesque Toy Shop. I also, do not reveal my own measurements of my body as I am not comfortable sharing those.
You see in the photo to the left that there is boning but it is fairly thin and doesn't give a great amount of support. The area where you can see the satin ribbon being crisscrossed is about 1 inch wide with it being about 15 inches long. There are 2 sections of the crisscrossed ribbon on this bustier and both are the same measurements, these areas should lineup with your breast area. When it comes to the other spaces between the boning there is a 3.75 inches of space. Since the material of the License To Thrill Bustier is super stretchy you shouldn't have many problems with it not fitting. If you need this piece to be looser or tighter whatever the case may be you can adjust it by using the eye and hook closure in the back. You will find 19 eyelets and 3 rows of hooks, you can expand this bustier up to 3 inches with the eye and hook closer. If you have it hooked all the way as tight as it will go the eye and hook area will be 1 inch wide if you need to go to the last row of hooks it will be 3 inches wide across the back.
The bustier is made out of 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex.
This means you will have a lot of stretch I would usually need a 3X/4X in most lingerie that I have from Seven Til' Midnight with very little wiggle room. If you are use to ordering the largest size you may not want to do it with this piece. I have problems with it being way too loose and need it tighter even with having everything fully hooked on the very first set of hooks.
According to Seven Til' Midnight's Size Chart I would fall in the 3X/4X or OS Plus in this case with all the stretch I needed the 1X/2X so make sure you order the right size.
Around the top and bottom of the License To Thrill Bustier there are mesh ruffles around 3.5 inches of them and you will see that there are a few different rows of them. Bows yes, you will find 3 of them one you will find front and center between your breasts and you will find the other 2 at the bottom that line up with the crisscrossed ribbons. There aren't any molded cups nor any shoulder straps so with that said if you are wanting support in the breast area you will want to invest in a strapless bra if you do not already have one.
Now on to the thong that's included and the packaging that the License To Thrill Bustier arrives in.
First we have the thongs, in all honesty I wish this bustier came with ruffle butt boyshorts or full back panties of some sort. Since we didn't get full back panties an we got a thong we shall talk about that. The thong is a generic black thong that usually accompanies every piece of lingerie we ladies and men own. Yes, I said men as we ladies are NOT the only one who wears it. As you can see in the photo the thong looks silky and most wouldn't wear any type of underwear unless they were cotton. This thong is not cotton but does have a cotton liner that is 2.75 inches in the widest part and is 3 inches long so you get a decent amount of coverage with the cotton liner. The front panel of the thong is 8.5 inches at its widest and 7 inches long. Just like the License To Thrill Bustier the thong has a lot of stretch to it as well. When the thong is laying flat an not stretched it measure to be 18.5 inches, when fully stretched it is 32.5 inches.
The packaging is a simple vinyl bag with a little hanger on top and a plastic button closure on the back. You can see the model on the front cardboard insert. Once you open the bustier you will find that it is packaged in another bag that is plastic.
Caring for your License To Thrill Bustier is simple hand wash in cold water using a mild soap, rinse thoroughly and hang or lay flat to dry. I personally never hand wash my lingerie, I usually use the delicate/gentle/hand wash option on my front load washer that doesn't have an agitator. I use to hang all of my lingerie to dry when it came out of the washing machine, I no longer hang up my lingerie I simply dry it on low heat via the gentle/delicate cycle on my dryer. The choice is your on how you wish to wash this piece but know it is a delicate piece of lingerie. If you want it to last a long while make sure to properly wash it. You can hang your bustier up in the closet or roll it up an lay it in your drawer. Due to the boning you are unable to fold this piece like you would a chemise or baby doll.
