Order by hip measurement,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rago Women's Waist Cincher (Apparel)
When I have put on other waist nippers, my reaction has been: "Yeah, I'm thinner, but I still don't have a figure." With the 821 model of the Rago, I have a WAIST! WOW!!
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. So the bulge was not a concern.
I highly recommend that you try this product. Its design is unique in that the tapes that define the waist give you a slimmer waist as compared to other products that only squish you all over.

I liked your review and found it helpful, but I must point out that it was unnecessary for you to reprint Rago's sizing info vs Amazon's, lest the buyer one might get a size too small. You really ought to look closer. They are exactly the same, as I have my Rago right in front of me, it is obvious. Amazon says: M=28" waist, 38" hip, Rago (it says) SIZE 28/M. It only gives the waist measurement on the garment, but as you can see they square up. But having worn it, I must also say, to really cinch your waist the way a Squeem does, you need to go down a size, it is not nearly as compressing as the Squeem, thus if you have a 28" waist, definitely buy a SIZE S/26.

Thank you for this review but I have a question for you. I've been wearing a Squeem cincher for years and love it but I've heard such good things about Rago, I wanted to try it out. When choosing a size, should I choose a size smaller than my "un-cinched" size? A size or two smaller than I actually am?

I am returning this cincher because the sizing is way off, no matter what this review says. I bought the XL based on my measurements and it was entirely too small. I would definitely go larger.
