This corset is amazing! Once you get the hang of doing up the front, and then lacing up the back, you get a perfect figure. The leather itself is fine quality faux and is almost indistinguishable from the real thing. The lace is delicate, silky and very easy to adjust. The steel clasps on the front are a little tricky, but still secure very well.I highly recommend this corset as an accent to any wardrobe.
