My apologies for not posting in awhile. The semester is wrapping up at University and things have been hectic. I checked my profile viewing stats and saw that I’ve had 117 reads. So, if you’re reading this, thanks so much, and, if you like it, please tell your stocking-loving friends! :-)
Above is the Rago Pink Waist Cincher #721, black satin body with pink flat sewn seams, black and pink lace front, 13 front hook-and-eye closures, 4 satin, adjustable garters with pink decorative bows at the top and metal clasps, and flexible spiral boning, available in sizes S-2XL, $36-40.00/cincher or £27.95.
Despite my stockings addiction, I am not a girly girl. I don’t like lace, pastels, pink, frills, ruffles, or any kind of extraneous frou-frou. Therefore, I was surprised when I got this item in the mail and immediately fell in love with it. Trust me, it looks much classier and way sexier than it does in the photo above. The pink lace front is beautiful. Rago has a reputation for well-crafted, retro undergarments and this certainly does not disappoint.
However, I have one significant complaint. Whether it’s minor or major depends on what you wear your waist cinchers for. My primary issue is that this cincher doesn’t cinch at all. I bought a size medium, which is what I usually wear, and there’s at least an inch of extra material on the sides. I don’t feel pulled in, smoothed, or shaped at all when I’m wearing this; I only feel like I’m wearing a pretty piece of lingerie. If you want this cincher to actually cinch, I’d recommend buying one size down from your usual size. If you just want something nice to hold up your stockings, then go ahead and buy your regular size.
