To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is just what I’ve been looking for. I’m 40 with a little belly. I’ve had 3 kids. I don’t like super tight shape wear that I can’t breathe in. This is exactly what I wanted. This is a loose fitting garment compared to traditional shape wear. Definitely resembles “underwear” over stiff spandex. It’s best described as “smoothing” the belly area, rather than holding/ sucking it in with a very tight garment. Honestly, the belly isn’t going anywhere so smoothing is what I’m looking for.
I’m a size 14 and the xl was perfect. I wouldn’t want a large bc it would be too tight. The waist band comes about 1” above my belly button. So it’s not a very “high waist” garment.
So the holding in part was OK, but the leg holes are a bit too large for me. Even though these are low-cut leg holes, they wanted to be cheeky, possibly because the crotch panel is just too long for me. If I take an inch or so out of the crotch panel I think they will be fine. I had this same problem with another model of bali shapewear, but not with the seamless microfiber ones. So I will probably order more of the seamless but not this one.
