This thing beats Spanx by a long shot.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am one who wears shaping underwear (Spanx) daily. At 5'5" 144.2 lbs I am not fat at all. However, I do want to fit back into my size 25 jeans (I am currently wearing a 27) and I would like to look good while working toward my goal. The problem with my spanx was this, one wrong wash cycle, one young daughter who throws my spanx in the dryer and they are never the same. I decided to look for something more durable, that offers a little more control than the Spanx did. I didn't mind paying a little extra money for something like this so long as it lasted longer.
As a result I took to Amazon searching for the perfect shaper, and came across this one.I am extremely happy with this product. You will be too, but you have to be ready, and used to wearing some kind of shaper. Before ordering I read all of the reviews, this way I knew what to expect and I was not disappointed. Below is my advice.
This shaper fits tight! I am a size 34 M. ORDER THE SIZE THAT YOU ARE! Do not go smaller. This is a real deal Corset Girdle, made for the purpose flattening and control. It does just that. Take your measurements and be true to self. Order the size that you are according to the measurements you take.
Do not be disappointed upon reciept when have ordered your size and you find it hard to fasten. I had to lay down to fasten mine, but once it was on it flattered so well. Lay down on the bed and relax, fasten from the bottom up and wear it all day. One review suggested sleeping in it the first time. I did just that. If you are not used to the compression I suggest wearing to around on a day when you will be home. In doing so you are breaking yourself in as well as the product. The latex eventually stretches and becomes more comfortable each time you wear it. Do this a few times if you need to before wearing out if you need to. I did not need to do this because I wear the maximum control I can find everyday. It was not too much of a bother to me.
The inside is cotton but the outside is latex. It is hot in this thing.
The girdle does not appear easy to clean. To keep it clean as well as to keep my skin from being irritated I wear a camisole or tank top underneath. One does not need to wear a camisole but my skin is sensitive so this is just my preference.
I give it 5 stars because within 15 minutes of getting to work the following day I was flattered about the look of my outstanding figure three times. It truly does the job. I feel supported, comfortable, and a little more sexy wearing it. :)
