I love it!! Gives me a beautiful hourglass shape
on August 25, 2014
I want to first start off by saying I love it!! It does exactly what it is suppose to do! My fiancé definitely loves the effect it gives! Lol but I hope this review will be helpful because I did a lot of research and measurements and read reviews before I purchased this one, I'd been looking for a good waist trainer/cincher and didn't want to waste money or get the wrong size! A lot of the reviews that were left weren't very helpful I did however read 2 or 3 helpful reviews and it ultimately helped in my final decision on the right size for me!
Keep in mind ladies, everyone is shaped different and carries their weight differently! For me, I am 24 and I am 5'6 and I weight alil over 160 and I wear a 7/8 in pants and medium in t-shirts! I took my measurements and I am 38 30 42....I carry most of my weight in my butt and hips but I have a child and working moms know how difficult it can be to stay fit so I wanted something to help flatten my stomach. I love my body but it makes me feel so much more attractive to have a waist trainer to help me achieve the hourglass figure. The chart says I am a size 12 medium but I decided to go up a size to be sure because almost all the reviews say the product runs very small and I agree it does but at the same time that is the purpose of the product to suck everything in and hold it there tightly! I ordered a size 14 large and it was a tight fit but once I got it on and was comfortable I fell in love with what it was doing to my body! Not to mention my fiance couldn't keep his hands off Lol but I would suggest people take their measurements and compare it to the chart and/or go up a size to be sure! If I would have went with a size 12 it probably wouldn't have fit! I am completely satisfied for the moment but of course this is just the first day I was just so excited and so in love! Also it does have a rubbery/latexy smell to it when you first open it and I put a tight shirt over it to see how it would look and you can kinda see it through the shirt however the shirt was kinda thin and light colored but I wear tank tops under all my shirts anyway so it looks fine! Beware choose your size wisely and pay attention to the charts.....just because you wear a size 8 in pants doesn't mean you will wear a size 8 in the waist trainer!!! Hope this review helps someone!
