Hours after winning the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, Serena Williams was in Florida to hawk her Serena Williams Signature Statement Collection on a live broadcast on HSN. It was the third anniversary of Serena's deal with the network. To celebrate, Serena offered a special on her corset leggings. (Over 17,000 sold!)
Busted Racquet looked at those and other garments for sale on her HSN.com site.
Item: Corset Leggings in 16 sizes and seven colors, $29.90
Description: "Made with a luxurious stretch knit that delivers a flattering fit, this pull-on pant draws attention with its unique and sexy tie-up corset detail."
Busted Racquet's take: If there's one thing that says sexy, it's the words "pull-on pant."
Item: Crochet Pullover Sweater, $49.90
Popularity: Less than the "Ruffle-iscious Ruched Leather Gloves," more than the "Romantic Lace-Sleeve Flowy Top."
Online review: (None)
Item: Perfect Poncho, $19.95 (clearance price)
Description: "Style that falls into your lap. This poncho pairs with just about anything short of sequins and fur."
Alternate description: "Makes you pretty outside even if you're unattractive inside."
Item: Long-sleeved rouche draped dress
Description: Romance your wardrobe with class and contemporary style.
Thoughts: Romance your wardrobe? Margaret Court surely can't approve of that.
Item: Honeycomb Legging, $39.90
Most likely WTA wearer: Caroline Wozniacki (gift from Rory McIlroy)
Rejected description: John McEnroe almost certainly wore something like this in the '80s.
Item: Mesh Boyfriend Cardigan, $19.95 (clearance price)
Bold claim made in description: "A modern twist to a classic design, this mesh boyfriend cardigan was made with you in mind."
Online review: "THIS IS A GREAT CARDIGAN TO WEAR HERE IN FLORIDA AS THE FABRIC IS WONDERFUL. HOWEVER, WISH I HAD ORDERED A MEDIUM INSTEAD OF A LARGE AS IT IS LARGER THAN I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE HAD IT FIT."
