Corset Chick Review

Corset Chick Review & a Sizing Rant!

Being a plus size gal, I was excited to see that Corset Chick Review went up to a size 5/6 XL.  Let me just take a moment to go on my soap box and say, yes I’m a larger woman and I know I need to be smaller, however I’ve been trying for years and have yet to have enough success to make me a size 2 or whatever the ‘in’ size is.

I have made some great strides this year that have helped my health, but they haven’t made me a toothpick yet.  Plus, honestly, I’m 6 feet tall.  If I were a size 2 I’d look like I had an eating disorder!

*jumping off my soapbox*

All that being said, a 5/6 XL wasn’t what anyone I know would think of when they thought of it.  Normally, I wear a 2XL or maybe a 3XL if a brand runs small.  With Corset Chick, the 5/6 XL wouldn’t even fit!  That’s insane!

I was so thankful that I’m currently not having issues with self esteem, as I probably would have had a meltdown!  The 5/6 XL is supposed to fit an 18/20, even though they say they will fit up to a 22.

Well, let me tell ya, they don’t.  22 centimeters, sure, inches….  well, that is another story!   I will say though, that the g string that accompanies the corset is more true to size, I couldn’t wear them as they were actually a 5/6 XL…

It is frustrating to get to a site that boasts about ‘now carrying plus sizes’ only to find that their idea of a plus size is calling a size 14 fat.  Just because you slap on an ‘XL’ doesn’t mean it’s plus size.

Also, as the mom of a not large 17 year old, I can say for a fact that those kinds of things really hurt them when they buy a brand that runs *incredibly* smaller than they are supposed to then label something an XL to have ‘plus sizes’.

The only positive things I can say is that they have a good selection of styles and that the quality of the corset was nice.  Of course, I could only visually evaluate it was not going to fit around a woman that actually wore an 18/20!!!  It isn’t very often that I can’t find much to love about something, but here is one of those rarities.

Update: Corset Chick no longer has their website.  Perhaps it was the sizing thing…  SO, I’ve linked some fantastic corsets from Amazon for you!  😀
