Not for everyone - definitely size up from what the size guide says
on October 4, 2016
This Vedette Womens Open Bust Body Suit is certainly not for everyone. While it works well to suck and tuck all of your different bits and pieces, I found that I couldn't wear this bodysuit for long periods of time at once, due to the immense back pain that I would suffer as a result of wearing it. I checked the size guide meticulously and determined my size based on the sizes provided by the manufacturer, however the product was still too tight, especially at my waist. The clenching of the garment meant that I was forced into upright position at all times - either sitting or standing - and, admittedly, my posture isn't the best, but the dramatic change from being slouchy to being completely straight definitely was a burden on my back that was hard to stand.
Buttoning each of the clasps up is a pain, and may be easier with two people. I found that as I hooked them, some others would come unhooked, resulting in me needing to go back and forth between clasps.
The material itself is nice, it isn't very stretchy at all, but smooths everything out if you can get used to how tight it is. I would recommend sizing up even what the product size guide tells you to ensure that it fits properly and doesn't make it difficult for you to breathe/doesn't hurt your back if you have bad posture like myself.
