    1. Hitch With This Harness

      Reviewed: 11 November 2012 by Kasumi, a Straight Engaged Female

      The Dreamgirl Plus Size Wet Look Chemise with Harness Bra and Suspenders is a really lovely set of lingerie.

      The set comprises of a black halterneck chemise and matching thong. Both pieces are made from the same high quality, wet look material that is very stretchy and promises a luxurious fit. The top-half of the chemise is a strapped harness that is designed to hold your bust securely using the built-in under-wired cups.

      I couldn't wait to try on this lovely set but unfortunately I ran into problems as soon as I did. The picture on the packaging shows that the strappy part of the chemise makes up about 30% of the garment but on mine it is nearer 50%. This makes the dress extremely long and means that the bra cups actually fall below my bust!

      If the harness was properly adjustable then there wouldn't be a problem but the only part that can be altered to any degree is the hook and eye choker fastening. Even then the amount of adjustment is very small and only makes it tighter round the neck, it doesn't help with the loose harness issue at all.

      The description states that the built-in bra will "lift your bust" but the harness is so loose that there is no support at all, even with the back strap adjusted to its tightest, it is still far too big. In the end I had to tie the straps in a knot rather than fasten them in an effort to get the garment to fit but even that left the front of the harness flopping about. The only hope of getting this to fit my chest will be cutting the straps, severely shortening them and sewing it all back together.

      The bottom half of the dress is much better. It is figure hugging without being too clingy and is very comfortable to wear. The only issue is that the picture shows the base of the dress hugging the thighs but it actually flares out instead. This doesn't bother me though and it doesn't take anything away from the dress.

      Due to the aforementioned harness issue, the whole dress falls lower than it should which causes the garter straps to hang almost to the knees. Obviously that is far too low to use with stockings but thankfully this fault is easily rectified with a pair of hold-ups since the straps are detachable.

      Thinking that my lack of height could have contributed to the issues with this outfit, my 6'4 partner tried it on but had all the same problems that I did, the harness really is that long.

      Overall, I do like the look and feel of the Dreamgirl Wet Look Chemise but there will have to be an awful lot of adjustments, sewing and modifications before I get any real use out of it.

      Bottom line
      Nice outfit, let down by poor sizing.
