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.
I am 5 foot so short in both legs and upper body. Size 10ish around waist and hips and thighs and size 12 around bust. My main concerns are a bit of a pot belly and back fat! I ordered a size MEDIUM and it fits fine and although a little tight pulling it up and not as generous around the bust as I would prefer, it gives me a great silhouette across my back and pulls in my tummy, it feels far more comfortable then the high waisted pants I usually wear because it does not roll down and the shoulder straps can be altered. Glad I bought it, as I am happy with the results, delivery was as expected. Sorry to give exact size details but I think it helps other people to choose the size they need !!
I can’t believe how much I have previously spent on Spanx before discovering this. I googled advice on the best support pants and this make came up. They are incredible. The fabric is silky and holds you in without pain! This particular style is perfect but just make sure you check the hold of any other products from this brand as I bought a tan pair but it did not provide any hold. It’s my fault as I should have read the product information better. This one though is amazing and I am ordering another one when I find it in a natural colour.
I have tried quite a few shapewear bodies but I find this the best one & very comfortable (as comfortable as shapewear can be). The fabric is so thin that there is no cutting in on the thighs. Unlike a lot of modern shapewear it doesn't seem to lift your behind - which I am really pleased with. If I wanted my behind to stick up and out then I wouldn't be looking at underwear that is supposed to suck it all in! This squashes everything in so gave me the slimmest profile of all the shapewear I have tried - some of it near £100 so this is a bargain. The only criticism I have (hence the 4 stars) is that the super slimming band that you can see in the pic forms a pant shape within the body is quite high cut - therefore if you have any extra bits of fat on the hips (love handles I guess) then these aren't held in as much as the area above - so it can give bulges here. If the super power band section wasn't cut so high this wouldn't happen. A small gripe really as everywhere else is held in beautifully.
I was sceptical, but this was great. I'm a uk 16, bought the XL, could've got the L. Doesn't feel uncomfortable, doesn't really pull you in much but smoothes you out, though I think the L would've done this for my size/shape. I'm a big busted woman, so this was great as you use your own bra.
Size 14 and bought the Large. Tight to get into but that is the point, and once you've got it on all lumps & bumps are smoothed. Wearing your own bra is a bonus and it holds boobs in from the side so you look slimmer there too rather than minimiser bras which squash them all outwards. Washes perfectly. Such a well constructed garment & incredibly reasonably priced. Quality.
Really good and fits well. I read some of the reviews where there were comments about it being too tight, I am glad I did not order a bigger size. One of the best I had really. I also like the strap, it gives the boobs a little lift without squashing. In my opinion, the only thing that needs adjusting is the opening at the bottom. That definitely needs improving, it does not need to overlap because a person wears a knicker anyway. I have washed it and it's still fine. Other than that, love it.
Bought to wear under fitted dress. It is perfect, as other reviews say this doesn’t suck you in but gives a smooth look, doesn’t push bits out in other places like some do. I’m a 12 (with some wobbly bits) & bought medium, it stayed in place all day, tightest part is around waist to under bust which was great. It’s quite long in body so needed to put straps to shortest adjustment, plus it comes up quite high at back which I altered to suit dress. As others have said the opening for toilet purposes is a bit tricky to get hang of but I managed without any mishaps - it wouldn’t be too difficult to remove but I didn’t want to be stripping off each time. I’m very happy with this item & think I’ll be getting another in black :) Material is strong enough to pull up without risk of ripping, which I’ve done in past with the more expensive brand...
