Coco De Mer – Escala Suspender Dress 75E; Unmet Expectations

coco de mer for fifty shades of grey escala suspender dress

Some time ago we wrote about the phenomenon of the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and lingerie that appeared in the movies – today we’ll take a closer look at a suspender dress from the collection from Coco De Mer. Although after unpacking it, I wasn’t particularly impressed and I still believe it has some issues, after a while, I had started to feel more positive about the dress as a . . . collectable. While the price might suggest that Coco De Mer’s dress is of the highest quality, it just isn’t.

The initial price, 55 pounds, is dramatically high when quality is taken into account. Had the dress been made with greater attention to detail and with better materials, the cost could be justified; in its current state, however, I wouldn’t pay more than 30 pounds for it. You might be wondering why do I start with the price and the reason is simple: the brand. I expected something truly luxurious from Coco De Mer, and even tough the design is wonderful, the quality of the product is more akin to retail store brands.
 
Let’s start with the materials. The two main ones are black, elastic tulle and thick, white stretchy lace. When I first touched it I felt bad about it, as it reminded me of Polish house curtains from the 80s (I took into account that only people from the old Eastern Bloc tend to have such associations and that for a British or French lady it could seem quite glamour), but it felt really good on my body and it effectively created a trompe-l’œil waspy waist.
Black tulle hugs prettily what it should be hugging and it doesn’t cut with its edge or graze. Cleavage straps are sewn from thick satin and are just a little too long, which causes them to wrinkle slightly, at least if you have a tendency to hunch. The straps seem almost barely attached to the gore, and the cups are crookedly sewn ; right cup is lower than the left one.


The tag doesn’t include any info about the size. Really.
 
If you’re taller than 170 cm, then, unfortunately, this isn’t the product for you – I am 173 cm high and without stockings the dress would just go up towards my pubic mound. It’s irritating, as I’m not always in the mood for stockings, especially in the middle of summer. Taking it off is problematic in a similar way; I had the dress rolled up under my armpits a few times, with my hands trapped uncomfortably.

 



I chose size 75E due to its shallow cups and because my wide hips do need to fit in – and it wasn’t a bad choice! Band of the bra part holds fastened on the last set of hooks and doesn’t move at all. The constructor has done a good job with correlating the elasticity of all the materials used. Cups are filled and the gore stays in contact with the body – everything’s as it should be.


I chose panties from a different set – Masquerade (sic). I found it greatly amusing that the brand asks 17 pounds for polyester triangle – it’s just like those strings you get as a freebie with a cheap Chinese corset.

 

 

 

We have a bad product with a license here; on one hand, it holds boobs well, on the other hand, the materials make it difficult to put the thing on without any assistance. On one hand, the design is great, and on the other hand, the materials used could be of better quality. I’m disappointed because, despite its generally good presentation, I’ll wear it seldom if ever due to how uncomfortable it is to use. And you? Do you wear suspender dresses?

Moja kolekcja modeli z kolekcji @cocodemeruk – zgodnie z ruchem wskazówek zegara: Goddess Plunge, Masquerade Halterneck, Ana Balcony, Escala Suspender Dress. 👙💋💃🏻 Jeśli mam być szczera – nie polecam. Najtańszy produkt w cenie pierwotnej kosztuje 16 funtów (stringi), natomiast jakość i zgodność rozmiarowa jest supermarketowa w najlepszym razie. Purpurowy balkonik Ana sprawia, że biust wygląda jak spłaszczona kajzerka, Escali nie da się samodzielnie zdjąć, Goddess nie trzyma rozmiaru, Masquerade nadaje się na trzy rozmiary biustu (75D, 80C, 85B). Fakap. Nie polecam. Ale! Powędrują na aukcje charytatywne, więc przynajmniej zrobią coś dobrego 😉❤Recenzję Escali przeczytacie w nadchodzącym tygodniu 👙💗 #fail #fakap #badlingerie #instalingerie #intimates #undergarments #miskidwie #fiftyshadesofgrey #fiftyshadesdarker #cocodemer #bra #stanik #biustonosz #bielizna #koronka #lace #dessous #bieliznaerotyczna
