||With over 34,000 images, Elise Erotic can boast a huge catalog of fetish images, dedicated primarily to lovers of pantyhose, stockings, heels and feet. Most recent images are 1177×1704 pixels and of a generally high technical standard. Updates appear on a regular basis, each one split over two weeks.
There's no doubting Elise looks fantastic in hose and heels – she has great legs – and there are some really excellent galleries, the location shoots being particular highlights. A wide variety of outfits means there should be something for everyone, but if not, you can always contact Elise with your own request.
Although the premise of the shoots hasn't changed, there has been a recent trend towards more nudity. Whereas previously Elise's vagina would be only barely visible through various types of sheer material in one or two images per set (if you were lucky), now there's some clear frontal nudity creeping in, although still a far cry from spreading or hardcore.
||When the site was founded, Elise had a beautiful, natural figure, but using the gallery dates as a guide, at some point in late 2003 she underwent surgery and returned with some really horrible and pretty weird-looking breast implants. Although (thankfully) they're never fully revealed – sheer tops are as far as Elise will go – they don't suit her at all. The huge library of pre-op images only serves as a reminder of what a beautiful, natural figure she once had.
The other major negative is the site design, which is woefully out-of-date and does nothing to enhance the user experience; photo sets aren't dated and zip files, the links for which aren't on the gallery pages, are few and far between. There is also a complete lack of meaningful supplementary content. There are a handful of tiny videos in an antiquated format, an ancient guest book page and a few member galleries. The live chat has been off-line for as long as I can remember and the last webcam show was in 1999.
||Elise Erotic really is hit-and-miss. On the positive side, Elise has great legs and there is a huge number of images. Unfortunately there is also a general lack of imagination and variation when it comes to shoots, so while the outfits may vary, the locations rarely do.
The trend towards more nudity is welcome, but it's about eight years too late. Personally speaking, the less of Elise's fake tits I see the better, seriously, she's a lot sexier when she keeps them covered up. Given the strengths of the older galleries, when Elise was a more natural-looking, girl-next-door type, a few more daring shoots back then would've been just the ticket.
Say what you like about the subject and Elise herself, there's no arguing that the website itself is dreadful. Quite apart from it appearing to be designed fifteen years ago, the navigation is misleading and in some cases dysfunctional. For example, currently there are twenty-six main galleries but the left-hand navigation only extends to twenty-four, and on some pages to only twenty-one, so it's easy to miss the latest additions. Each main gallery is divided into (on average) nine separate shoots, but none are dated. Only the most recent galleries have zip files but their download links are located on a different page entirely.
It's annoying that each set is posted in two halves, on average fifty/sixty images at a time over a period of a week. But here's a tip; although the HTML navigation pages for each gallery go on-line in two halves, all the images are uploaded in one go, so if you use a download manager or guess at their URLs, they're easy to find. That means you can view all the images in a set without a long wait, but effectively reduces the number of site updates to a paltry two per month.
In terms of video, the site is light years behind what everyone else is doing. With three exceptions, all thirty-six clips are presented in Real Media versions 3 and 4, formats that all but died out back in the last century. In addition, they're all the size of postage stamps, none larger than 320×240, including the most recent posting in Windows Media format. The video content itself is acceptable, in fact Elise's voice reminds me of Jodie Foster and she has a fun, personable nature, but the technical aspects of the video let the whole side down.
Would I recommend the site? Err... tough call. It's inexpensive to join and if you don't expect much you'll probably be pleased with the huge number of photos, especially if you're a fan of the genre. Recent shoots have more spice, and that'll hopefully continue, but if you're looking for video content you'll be sorely disappointed and if you're troubled by disfigured chests, look away or concentrate on the older material. For a month or two the site is worth a try, but probably doesn't have much mileage. If you're a fan of Elise, rejoin every twelve months or so, with just one month's subscription you'll be caught up in next to no time.
