Great for price, but misleading
on January 9, 2015
Here are my measurements just so you have an idea: 5'1, 125lbs natural waist 27". I ordered the 24 (according to size chart) which fits fine with the laces loosened, but maybe a 22 would work better for more of a waist trainer (there is only a little bit to go once I tightened it) Its not what I expected because:
1. Steel boned? Its very flexible.. However, when I have it on, it does keep its shape and is sturdy. Felt misled here since it specifically said STEEL BONED--- if it is, it's very soft steel (ive attached photos)
2. It's not RIBBON LACING, its just regular shoe string
3. Its a bit too long on my torso. Pushes my breast up uncomfortably. But I'm wearing a wirlesss bra and it helps if you allow the corset to fit over the bottom of the bra a bit.
4. It pushes your stomach "fluffiness" down which makes it bulge out-- maybe a little diet and exercise will help me there.
