Review: Sonata Rapalyte Custom Elektra Bodysuit

Sonata Rapalyte Custom Elektra Bodysuit was reviewed by Sweet Nothings:

Oooh boy, today’s review takes me a little outside of my comfort zone, but I’m also really, really excited to share it with you. I’ve been an admirer of Sonata Rapalyte’s lingerie for a few years now, especially her signature lace bodysuits. With loungewear and layering pieces still surging in popularity, and with references to styles and shapes of the 1980s still trending, these bodysuits make me weak in the knees. Gorgeous color combinations, silk-covered buttons, daringly sheer lace and a plunging scalloped neckline: these pieces feel both elegant and effortless. Y’all know I love a dramatic corset with lots of structure and opulence, but there should be harmony in all things, including one’s lingerie wardrobe, and these lace bodysuits feel just as special, but a little more relaxed.

I’ve had a fuller bust for two decades or so now, so I’d long since resigned myself to the idea that delicate, lightweight lingerie pieces like this were Not For Me. No, I figured I’d always be on the hunt for a fancy bra, or a basque, or a corset, or I’d have to settle for a less body-conscious style like a robe or chemise. So when the Sonata Rapalyte press team reached out to me to ask if I’d like to review a piece, I initially declined, explaining that I was outside their size range, being full-busted, tall, and fuller-figured. To my surprise, they wrote back immediately and offered to make a bodysuit of my choice specifically to my measurements. After I picked my jaw up off the floor and responded yes yes, a thousand times yes, I picked the style I wanted and took a series of measurements following instructions and a diagram the Sonata Rapalyte team provided. I emailed my measurements on April 6, and the bodysuit arrived, beautifully wrapped in a lovely box, in New York on May 3.
