I purchased a piece of lingerie at a Romantix store in Waterloo, Iowa this evening. When I arrived home, I attempted to put on said lingerie. The box assured me that a 3x/4x would fit Bust Size 48-52, and Hip Size 50-56. Not even CLOSE to the truth.
After getting assistance from my husband to get the piece unstuck from under my breasts and off (I'd hoped it was just bunched or wound in the back making it snug - it wasn't), I measured it. The bust ACTUALLY measures 22 inches across when stretched taut - 22+22=44. NOT 48-52. Measured the hip area stretched taut - 24!! 24+24=48. NOT 50-56!! This was not a case of "wrong item in the box" either - the sewn-in tag CLEARLY shows 3x/4x. Misleading, ill-sized RIP-OFF.
I am demanding a refund (price on receipt AND box i can send in a photograph or scan) for the $24.99+tax from the company or I will return the item to the store along with my SCATHING review of the products so they can choose whether or not to keep selling them.

I am impressed with the company for owning up to the problem and not only refunding my payment but also sending me 2 replacement options (that fit marginally better, but are still not exactly the size (in inched) printed on their boxes. PLEASE, ladies, keep this in mind when you purchase their products, and if it's possible (even if it's inconvenient) try the lingerie on before purchasing!
