I have just ordered the scarlet for half price in the sale in my normal size, 30F. The back size is a little generous on me around the waist and hips, even on the tightest hooks, but as it is not too loose around the bra strap section it is still feasible. I am likely to keep it as it is a sexy basque for a fantastic price and not available in a 28. I can recommend it, but suggest you buy a back size smaller than usual if you have a small waist.
This is an amazing basque. It fits, the looks are perfect (sexy in an elegant way), it is comfortable and gives med a great shape. I want to buy another one as I realise bought the wrong color, but sadly it has been discontinued.
Thought I'd try this in the sales. I'm a 30HH ish dress size 8-10 (stretchy clothes) or 10-12 (non stretchy). Cups were fine. It's the back size I struggle with. Only fitted ok on tightest hooks. Probably need a 28II/28JJ?? I have a well defined waist so I feel it bunches/rides up a bit around the waist/area just under my boobs past the cups. It does fit around my hips but it's not really pulling enough in at the waist area. I kept it as hubby loved it and it may be ok when I attach stockings. I brought this in the sale-would never have paid full price being unsure. I think with certain items like basques I'll never get a perfect fit I'm happy with due to my body shape. I will say if it fits others properly it is excellent quality at sale price.
Love this style. It lays beautifully against me and makes me feel very secure. Sizing is very good. I do hate the clips for the stockings but I think that has more to do with the stockings I bought. Love this set though!
