When the Cottelli Collection Basque appeared on my screen I just knew I had to add it to my review pile. I have a couple of pieces from the Cottelli Collection and I soon fast learnt that their quality is absolutely top-notch. And thankfully, this beautiful Basque is no exception that that.
As with other pieces, the basque arrived sealed in cellophane and inside a cardboard box which is adorned with a stunning model showcasing the piece perfectly. I get so excited when I see the box – I love when lingerie arrives this way. It adds another level for me because I automatically can visualise it so it makes me even more excited to rip it open and try it on.
The Cottelli Collection Basque comes with a completely crotchless thong which can be seen in the pictures above. Sadly for folk who want to see me modelling this piece, is not happening LOL. This thong is completely crotchless, meaning that there is really nothing left to the imagination. It’s basically the skimpiest, tiniest piece of fabric on a string I have ever owned and it’s really only there just complete the outfit. It serves very little purpose whatsoever, however, when it came to our bedroom antics – it was a big hit with my husband because he actually really likes me leaving undies on, or left on one leg – (which you can see here).
As you can see from the title of this review, the Cottelli Collection Basque actually comes with completely removable cups. There are a set of tiny buttons underneath each cup and this allows them to be completely removed from the piece, adding a completely new dimension to the piece!
The basque made up of a mix of transparent powernet and fancy flock print. The print covers each of the cups, goes down the middle of the piece and along the tops of each of my hips. It is so comfortable to wear – it’s like a second skin. I don’t own a piece with this fabric on it – and I am kinda wondering why more companies haven’t used it more. It looks stunning – the print pops out against the rest of the mesh fabric.
I received the medium size for review and this is perfect for my size UK 10, 34B frame. The cups hold and support my chest and the straps are adjustable, both shoulders and back should I want to adjust them. For the purpose of images, I have just worn a different thong for modesty but that too fits me correctly.
The piece also has adjustable stocking straps which in my opinion are really needed to complete the outfit!
The Cottelli Collection Basque has a beautiful teardrop diamond charm in the middle of the cups which really adds a touch of class and luxury to the piece.
Overall, I really recommend this piece – it is really comfortable. The printed swirls add another dimension as they really look like they pop out from the fabric. The quality of the basque is fantastic – it’s just so lovely to wear <3
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Orion for sending me the Cottelli Collection Basque in exchange for an honest and impartial review this however in no way changes my opinion on the item. What I honestly think, you read! All images displayed of the Cottelli Collection Basque are taken by myself!
