The theme of this outfit is clearly inspired by the archetypal image of a strict, leather clad dominatrix. But, the soft and stretchy wet-look fabric, and revealing cut, push this more towards the softer end of that spectrum. Here you're getting a revealing, comfortably cut basque and flat metal buttons, rather than stern black leather and pointy steel spikes!
If you are looking at the product page, keep in mind that the outfit includes suspender straps, but no stockings. I chose a pair of fishnets to go with it and I think that they suit the look, but wet look stockings or hold-ups would have been great too. The product photos include a 'whip' that appears to be some sort of braided leather flogger. We don't have one, but I think this black riding crop is a perfect alternative.
At £33 you might argue that stockings should be included, but it's still a great outfit and in reality you're almost certainly going to already have some favourite stockings to go with it.
The outfit you see here is the Small-Medium, aptly abbreviated to S/M. I'm 5'6" and a 32B, the fit is pretty good, and bigger boobs would certainly complement the style rather nicely. The fabric is very stretchy, but the bust has no padding or any real support.
In this photo-set I have paired the outfit with my Seven 'til Midnight Fishnet Leg Harness Hold-Ups. These are a strappy hold up with brass stud detailing. I've reviewed them here a few months ago. I do like them, but the quality is not that great - and we lost another of the glued on studs last night. (These were a replacement pair after sending the original ones back.)
The top has a halterneck style fastening around the back of the neck. Just a simple bow, so you're able to adjust it however you prefer. A second string fastening ties in the middle of your back - again, just a simple bow.
The g-string leaves very little to the imagination! It's patterned with silver studs that complement the design of the basque.
As I mentioned above, do please remember your accessories. Stockings and some nice boots or high heels are a must. And a whip, flogger or riding crop will really compliment the dominant look.
All in all, I'm delighted with the item, and definitely no complaints from the hubby!
It's perhaps a little too expensive, so I'd advise signing up for the Lovehoney mailing list and you'll routinely receive offers of 20% off voucher codes, and sometimes more.
A really sexy outfit and very comfortable, stretchy fabric. Great value if you can find it on special offer, or wait until you get a money-off voucher code via the Lovehoney mailing list.
A couple of the on-site reviews mention the product photo looking rather stiff and plasticy - I presume they're talking about the outfit, not the model! So I think it's worth emphasising this is a soft, stretchy wet-look fabric. It looks small when you look at it, but it stretches and hugs your body... and rather nicely I thought! :-) x
