Sweet Streak Brocade Overbust Corset-Style Bustier and G-String

I absolutely adore corsets and this year has been a year of my addiction getting worse, so when I was offered the Sweet Streak Brocade Overbust Corset-Style Bustier and G-String to review from Lovehoney I was over the moon.

This bustier has the most beautiful brocade material which gives a classy and very expensive look. The Jacquard material has an all over design with a slightly metallic thread that catches the light beautifully as you move. (The photos really don't do this corset justice).
This is perfect for a special evening out, immediately making you feel elegant and classy. This would go with a skirt or trousers as much as looking extremely sexy in the bedroom with its matching G-string and equally gorgeous with jeans and high heels for an evening down the pub. Either way you will feel and look a million dollars.
It has a sweetheart shape which I adore as it's always very feminine as it curves over the contours of your breasts and plunges between them, emphasising your cleavage. This shape tends to suit most women, whether you have small or large bust.
The bustier I have to stress is not a corset as it has plastic boning not steel. Bustiers are produced purely for fashion purposes not waist reducing.
This stunning bustier has 14 plastic bones which are covered in soft material. Despite not being a waist-reducing corset these plastic bones do actually pull me in smoothing my curves a little. The metal busks on the front flatten the tummy quite a bit. It's wonderful to look down and see a flatter stomach.

The back of the bustier is a corset style. This gives plenty of room to fit you perfectly. The 4-inch modesty panel allows you up to 3.5 inches larger without revealing any flesh. This has the look and feel of a very expensive corset.
The G-string is simply made from a triangle of the same material with elastic pieces to form the string. I'm not a lover of G-strings but it still made me feel sexy as it finishes the whole outfit for the bedroom off perfectly.

The busks are excellent quality and clip together securely but are quite fiddly to try and fit yourself. As you clip on one another tends to pops off so I enlisted my OH to help.


Both the busks and the lacing feel secure and the seams are well sewn with no frayed ends or any unfinished edges. It is really well made.

The back comes already laced up for you so I find it's always easier to loosen it before trying it on. This was the first bustier that I have had with 2 sets of lacing, the topset for the bust and the bottom for your hips, both finishing in the middle. This is brilliant as it gives you more size adjustment for bust, hips and waist if you are between sizes.

I had a minor sizing problem as I am a size 8-10 in a dress size and according to sweet streaks measurements that's a small, but my bust is a 34C. I should have in fact chosen the medium as it was quite tight all over for me. My waist is 25 inches and my hips 30 so I thought I would be able to adjust the lacing to fit my size.
But despite opening the bustier to full it was still very difficult to get in. I had a lot of booby overflow (which I had expected but thought I would be able to accommodate them within the bustier) so I couldn't go out in this unless I had something underneath. But it looks really sexy for the bedroom. I can contain the boobies for a small amount of time within the bustier but as soon as I bend or twist they escape. Even after loosening the lacing to its maximum I still couldn't cage the boobies.
Regardless of all this I do have some smaller rolls of fat and this bustier was able to smooth them out even though it was extremely tight it still looked incredibly glamorous; despite claiming to not being a waist reducing corset. I was over the moon.

Measurements of this bustier when closed:

Small: Bust 30 inches / Waist 24 inches / Hip 30 inches

Medium: Bust 30 inches / Waist 25 inches / Hip 31 inches

Large: Bust 34 inches / Waist 27 inches / Hip 35 inches

X Large: Bust 35 inches / Waist 29 inches / Hip 35 inches

Washing- as with all lingerie like this is always best to wash by hand.

I absolutely adore this corset. Choose your size carefully and it will emphasise what you already have, giving you a small amount of body and waist smoothing - resulting in some very sexy smooth lines and curves.
The metal busking pushes your bust upwards giving the most gorgeous bouncy sexy busty look. Despite my booby and size malfunction I would absolutely recommend this corset style bustier that could be worn on a night out or in the bedroom, making you feel and look one hot sexy mama.

You can buy yours from Lovehoney

All my thanks goes to Lovehoney for sending me this corset to review free of charge for a fair and honest review.
