Valentine’s Day is coming fast, so when I passed The Town Shop yesterday afternoon (a New York bra-fitting institution on the Upper West Side that I’ll review someday), I ducked inside to see if they had anything beautiful and sexy for the full-breasted woman. The last thing I took into the dressing room was the best thing I tried on, a Grenier satin corset:

It’s super sexy–our cleavage looks way better in this corset than the model’s above; it’s super flattering because, after all, it’s a corset; and it’s super easy to put on because of the 15 hooks in front. It doesn’t come in cup sizes, just numbers (32-44), which means you can play with the lace-up back to make it work for you.

You can either tuck it in or wear it out because the garters are detachable. One of the many details I appreciate about this corset is that if you decide to detach the garters, the loops they were attached to stay hidden. Here’s a closeup of the fabric.

You won’t find this corset on the company’s website but you can find it in black, white and poinsetta (an amazingly beautiful red) at for only $89.99. You can also go to, where I found the photo above.
