I own lots of sexy lingerie. I feel good when I’m wearing something beautiful against my skin, even though only I can see it (sometimes!) I’m really impressed with my latest purchase, the Oh La La Cheri Suspender Basque Set, purchased from Lovehoney.
Oh La La Cheri
This French label was established in 2007 and offer “decadent lingerie”. The label is described on their website as:
“An intimate apparel design house with obsessive attention to detail. The Paris born designer and owner creates each piece with the goal to enhance a woman’s femininity and evoke sensuality.”
I purchased the basque set in a size Medium, and I’m a size 8 – 10 with 32DD boobs. I’m on the petite size, but I’m not skinny. I get a perfect fit with the basque by fastening it on the middle clasps.
It has three levels of hook and eye clasps at the rear, and a slip of bright red material holding the fastenings. The rest of the basque is red and black and has an absolutely gorgeous pattern, with some ribbon detail around the bones. It has a fairly thick black lace trim and sweetheart neckline. The shoulder straps and 4 red suspender straps are all adjustable.
Wow! I adore how the Cheri Basque looks. The design is gorgeous, the stitching flawless, and it’s extremely well made. I love the shade of red that has been used and all the detail which has been included. It hugs my figure, flaunts my curves, and flatters my boobs. The cute lace hem flares outwards giving it a girly edge. The little red bows add to the femininity of the piece and draw the eyes towards my boobs and thighs. The boning pulls me in and yet feels comfortable. I couldn’t be happier with how this basque looks!
I much prefer fuller thongs as opposed to g-strings, and if I’m allowed to be really fussy, I prefer proper knickers. These can be crotchless, racy, criss-cross or lacy – anything really, but I’m not a fan of bra-strap thin thongs. I don’t find them flattering at all. The Cheri Basque comes with a g-string which matches the basque, and from the front, I must admit it looks fab – but from the back, I look like I’m wearing nothing below the basque. I wore the g-string for the purpose of taking these photos but I haven’t worn it since, and probably won’t wear it again!
I love this basque so much, and all its detail, so here are a few more photos.
