I was a little hesitant about buying this after reading about it not fitting people correctly, smelling like fish, crappy ties, and so on. I decided I couldn't pass up this sale though! When it arrived, it just smelled like fake leather... which is what it is! It fits me perfectly as well! I ordered a small (I am a 32C, with a 28 inch waist) and it fits perfectly! I never had to really adjust anything, I just put it on and it was awesome! I am very, very happy I bought this at such a great price. And the leather thong it came with was pointless... Just toss it when you get it. I think that if you get this expecting to tie it up sooo tight with the "ribbon-ish" ties... it might not work. I think the ribbon ties it came with are pretty but might not be realistic if you're trying to really cinch your waist. Overall, great choice!
