Plus Size lingerie is coming on in leaps and bounds these day. One of my favourite companies for this is Oh La La Cheri. They have a fantastic range of sexy and glamourous lingerie to flatter a curvier figure. When I needed a special set of lingerie for an important date with Mr Snatch I headed straight to Lovehoney and quickly came across the Oh La La Cheri Curves Plus Size Bustier and G string Set. I absolutely loved the colours and style and the price was right so it was a decision made.

Lovehoney are always super-fast with despatch and delivery and even though id left it a little last minute I had my outfit with me in plenty of time. Packaged in the familiar Lovehoney brown box and clear lingerie bag the packaging was discreet and simple. Thrilled by the gorgeous ruby-like colour I quickly tore it open. 20161030_190354

Burlesque Glamour

There is no doubt about it the Oh La La Cherie Curves Bustier is a work of art. The body of the bustier is a gorgeous deep ruby jewel red, not that bright cheap looking red that some lingerie can be. The centre panel of the Oh La La Cherie Curves Bustier is overlaid with black lace giving it a very boudoir feel. The panelling gives a contouring effect to the bustier bodice and this looks stunning on. The fabric is soft and stretchy which means it’s very forgiving and comfortable to wear. 20161030_190443

The underwired cups of the Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier are slightly padded to help with lift and support. I’d have liked thicker straps if I’m honest but that’s purely a comfort issue, there was no issues with support and the Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier lifted my boobs nicely giving me a fabulous cleavage. The shoulder straps are fully adjustable and accentuated with a little black satin bow. The cups themselves are the same jewel red with the black lace overlay stopping just before the top to give a two-tone colour effect. In between the cups nestles a little black bow made of satin ribbon adorned with two tiny diamantes for added glamour. 20161030_190612

Suspenders and Lace20161030_191850

The hem of the Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier is trimmed with beautiful black ruffled lace which is very flattering, sitting over your hips and the tops of your thighs. The lace is very soft and not at all scratchy like some lace can be. There are 4 adjustable suspender straps on the Oh La La Cheri Curves Plus Size Bustier, these are removable so you can opt for stockings or hold ups with the outfit. The suspender straps are nice and wide with black clips for fastening to your stockings. These are covered with black satin ribbon. I found the suspender clips to be a little fiddly to fasten at the back, however once clipped on they stayed put well despite being put through their paces. The tops of the suspenders are trimmed with a black satin bow.20161030_190420

The back of the Oh La La Cheri Curves Plus Size Bustier is fastened from top to bottom with a row of classic hook and eye fasteners, there are 3 rows of hook and eyes allowing you to adjust your fit, brilliant for me as I have to buy a larger size for cups than I need in the body. The sides of the Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier have a beautiful black satin ribbon corset-effect lacing, which is adjustable. You can pull it in to curve to your body or let it out if the fit is a little snug. I love this idea both in terms of practicality and design. It really adds a stunning Moulin Rouge effect to the Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier. However, if like me you do use it to pull the bustier in a little you can be left with long satin ribbons to bow up at either side. I suppose you could trim these if they bothered you. I quite liked the effect and just knotted them up.20161030_191735

Oh La La Cheri include the standard teeny tiny black G string with the Curves Plus Size Bustier. I couldn’t wear this as where id bought a larger size for my boobs the G string was baggy. This was my fault though {or my boobs fault} but was no issue as I just teamed it with a pair of black and red cage knickers I already owned or a black lace thong to great effect. The G string doesn’t really add anything to the outfit if you do have to abandon it or replace it.20161030_190550

What Was The Verdict?

In terms of fit the Oh La La Cheri Curves Plus Size Bustier is very adjustable giving you lots of scope to get the fit right. I like the way the panelling effect flatters my figure and the length of the bustier is perfect for hiding the bits I don’t like and accentuating the bits I do. I love the way the Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier looks almost like a corset but is much more comfortable to wear. The only real complaints I have about it is the shoulder straps could be a little wider and the suspender clips could be larger to make them less fiddly to attach.20161030_191713

I teamed my Oh La La Cheri Curves Plus Size Bustier with deep lace topped stockings and spiked black heels and it would be fair to say when I walked into the bedroom Mr Snatch nearly fell over. His face was a picture and he couldn’t keep his hands off me. During play time, the Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier didn’t ride up or move around and stayed looking very sexy all the way through. The Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier is a very glamourous burlesque-looking piece of lingerie. I’m really glad I chose this outfit for such an important occasion as it made me feel knockout and he loved it.20161030_190632

As is the case with most lingerie The Oh La La Cheri Curves Bustier is hand wash only. The Oh La La Cheri Curves Plus Size Bustier is £29.99 which is very reasonable for such a lovely piece. You can buy this and other Oh La La Cherie lingerie at Lovehoney
