Bodyline Reveiw of 1 OP, and 2 JSKs



Hi all! With free shipping I ordered a few things, so I thought I'd let you know how they were. If I type something that doesn't make much sense, sorry I am having a foggy day.


First up: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/showProduct.asp?id=1866&pageNumber=1&pageStop=stop_16&noSubType=N
First and foremost I want to say this WILL NOT fit a 39'' bust. My bust is 38 and there was no way it was closing. I am a little disappointed at this, and I may try to alter it but probably not. I do really love it though. The fabric on this is thinner than the other 2 items.

Close up of the prints... they are very glittering! There are also little rose buttons down the front.

Detachable wingy thing. I kinda like this, and I kinda think it's dumb. Maybe I will make new ones. Coz the concept is cute, but their's leaves something to be desired.


Second: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/showProduct.asp?id=2164&pageNumber=1&pageStop=stop_12&noSubType=N
The measurements on this one are pretty accurate, but I did get it to stretch to my 38'' bust. It's nice and stretchy in the shirring, and the fabric even is a little stretchy. The lace is all very nice on this piece and all the bows can be removed. Mine came with a wonky zipper though, it gets caught on itself easily, and even when you stretch it just a tiny bit it goes flying down. The fabric is a nice weight on this one.

Third: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/showProduct.asp?id=3426&pageNumber=1&pageStop=stop_2&noSubType=N
This one is my favourite, even if it seems very sweet. It has TONS of stretch. I am thinking it could fit up to a 40'' bust, and 34.5'' waist. I haven't measured it to be sure, but I can stretch it a couple more inches when I am wearing it. It's got some raschel lace on it, which is pretty soft. I am wearing it as I type this, and it's not bugging me much. There isn't a lot of it, so it would be easy to remove/replace. The bow is on a pin back. The other trims include something like a stiff organza and some heart tulle. It's very comfy and cute. The print is very clear and bright, and the fabric is a nice wieght.

EDIT: The cherry dress has peices where the print goes in different directions. I have emailed bodyline about this issue and am waiting for a response.
