1)The difference between corsets and cinchers: I own both, and they both do different things even though most people think that they're the same. A corset makes the body look beautiful outside of clothes (they push the breasts up very high and pull in the waist), but in general (unless you're wearing Marie Antoinette style clothing) they don't look good under an outfit. The breasts become a single lump and the ties are usually quite visiable underneath (which defeats the entire purpose of trying to get people to think that this is your natural figure). A cincher is made to be worn under clothes, to pull in the waist, and to be as invisiable as possible. Therefore they often aren't as pretty as corsets but make much better undergarments.
2) Rago rocks! I own many shaper garments, and Rago's are by far the best. Yes, you can find cheaper brands in the department stores, but they won't hold up as well and they won't have the power that Rago's have.
3)Of the versions Rago offers on this site, this one is the best. I own the other model which is very similar except that it is lace and has garters, but it doesn't offer as much support as this one and aren't as invisiable as this one. The satin feels wonderful next to the skin and even under clingy dresses this is just about undetectable. Unless you have your heart set on garters, this is the cincher to buy.
4) The fit: like many women I suffer from "Mummy Tummy", the horrible price one must pay for having grown two human beings in her body.Read more ›
I purchased mine based on my hip measurement, because my jelly-belly gives me practically no waist at all, so nothing on the size chart matched up to my measurements. I made the right choice, size-wise. (NOTE: The Amazon size charts don't work for this product; had I used the Amazon charts, I would have bought too small a size; I used instead the Rago size chart and bought the correct size. Here is the Rago size info:
X Small (2-4), Hip 34, Waist 24;
Small (6-8), Hip 36, Waist 26;
Medium (10-12), Hip 38, Waist 28;
Large (14), Hip 40, Waist 30;
X Large (16), Hip 42, Waist 32;
2X Large (18), Hip 44, Waist 34;
3X Large (20), Hip 46, Waist 36;
4X Large (22), Hip 48, Waist 38;
5X Large (24), Hip 50, Waist 40;
6X Large (26), Hip 52, Waist 42;
7X Large (28), Hip 54, Waist 44.

I would post a picture, but there's no way that's happening online ;), so let me describe the effect: this reduced my waist measure noticeably, with the maximum compression to the waist, not the hip. In my case, it also pulled in my rib cage(mine is broad)& also improved my posture (which I thought was good!). Makes my figure look so much better, and the overall effect in clothing is so amazing - I swear it took YEARS off my appearance.
There was some bulging above the top (though not at the bottom), but once I put my brassiere on (which I had to tighten to the tightest hooks & I could probably wear a smaller band size when using this product), the brassiere took care of the bulge.Read more ›
Comments about this product. Note: even though they look the same, different versions have different levels of control. If you look at their Website, items are rated as: Light, Moderate, Firm, Extra Firm, and Soft Control.
This one should be Rago style 821 which the company classifies as "Firm".
I've tried all manner of shapewear and have both purchased and made traditional corsets (traditional corset being defined in this case as the traditional old-fashioned kind with laces meant to be worn under Victorian garments) as well as constructed and altered garments intended to go over said garments.
This is a well-made garment which balances modern demands for lightweight and comfort with power and structure.
I would most certainly rank it as significantly better than the Maidenform Flexees waist nipper which is still a piece of crap no matter how many times I tried to make it work. The Flexees always flips up on me making me wonder how to stand up after sitting down--not so with the Rago 821. The Rago stays put. No matter how hard I've tried, I've never been able to get it to flip up at the waist. One reason might be because it's difficult for me to slouch from the underbust down in this thing.
My center front measurement from underbust to hip is about 9"
The Rago 821 is made of nice stiff Powernet. Some people might think that the stiffness or thinness of the powernet might make it seam cheap, but really, that stiffness is important to make this thing work properly.Read more ›
