Coco’s Retro Closet Y strap suspender belt review by Jasmine

Well fancy meeting you here..

It is Jasmine from Quirky and Curvy again. IMG_0964

Earlier this year, I gave in to temptation and placed an order with the amazing Coco’s Retro Closet on Etsy. Today I will be reviewing one of the items I ordered.

The Y strap Garter/Suspender belt

Isn’t it stunning… I just had to try it, coming in at $80 AUD (97 with postage) it isn’t super cheap but the style and make is completely worth it.

Now first, I need to get this out of the way.. When you order they will take a while to arrive.. I am in Australia so they took a LOOONG while, but honestly be patient.

They are beyond worth it.

All the items are hand made by the amazing Goga herself and then shipped lovingly all the way from her base in Croatia. So be patient and they are so worth the wait.

It arrived safe and sound and very well packaged.

Without further ado..

I ordered the belt in White in a Large.

as a reminder my measurements are roughly

Bust: 49 inches or 124.5 cm

Waist: 36 inches or 91.5 cm

Hips: 51 inches or 130 cm

The size chart offered is:

XSmall (waist 20″-23″, 50-60 cm)

Small (waist 23″-28″, 60-72 cm)

Medium (waist 28″ – 33″, 72-84 cm)

Large (waist 33″-38″, 84-98 cm)

XLarge (waist 38″-43″, 98-109 cm)

2XLarge (waist 42.5″-47″/ 108-119 cm)

3XLarge (waist 46.5″-51″/ 118-129 cm)

4XLarge (waist 50.5″-55″/ 128-139 cm)

I would definitely order for your waist measurement. I fit nicely in the size range for the large. Needless to say the actual fit is pretty much perfect.

It is smooth, sits lovely and flat, does not dig in or crease. No weird bumps or lumps. Screen Shot 2015-08-12 at 9.07.09 pm

It is made from a elastane/spandex and feels lovely and soft against your skin. The straps are adjustable so can be worn with longer or shorter stockings. It has 6 straps but with the Y straps, it equals 12 clips.

The Y strap itself is just looks gorgeous, it stays very well clipped and holds very firmly.

So over all, I am completely smitten with this belt. I am seriously considering getting it in many other colours. The fit is pretty much spot on. I love that the size range is so generous. You can tell they are all made with love and care.
