I purchased this for a friend. The faux leather look is very nice, not cheap "pleather". She says that sometimes the boning in these things stick out and pinch skin, but that is NOT the case with this item. I have ordered 3 of these, because I kept selecting an incorrect size. This was solely my fault and the seller was very helpful and even willing to exchange it for me, though I just gave the wrong sized items to other friends. If you contact them before you order they will help you select the correct size. The only reason that I took off one star was because the last one I ordered arrived with a broken lace.
