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.
Delivery: I ordered this Thursday night, thinking it would come next week, as it says 3 to 5 days. Imagine my surprise when I get home the next evening to read my e-mails and it says it's been delivered to me??? I looked around, no card, went to my back door and it was left there. It was in a protective pouch so the rain wouldn't have got to it, but delivery within a day of ordering, especially as I ordered at night was totally unexpected, so I would suggest allowing for a super speedy delivery!
The product: Fits very well, and feels great on. It's a little tight, but it's shape wear so it's got to do it's job somehow. The cups are very supportive and overall very comfy. There is a gusset which I did not expect, but it unfastens which is great. No VPL. **EDIT** I originally marked down by 1 star because I thought the straps were not alterable such as in the picture, as I wanted them in the X shape across the back. There could have been instructions as it's not like others which just unhook from the side, you have to squeeze the end of the strap in the middle and you will find a little gap for it to then unfasten from the fabric. Now this is in the X shape it feels so much nicer, and the straps now will never fall off my shoulders. This is now one of my favourite purchases ever.
With a male body shape I need some help to look right wearing a dress and this is not a bad starting point. The only real poor design feature is that there's no targeted compression instead just relying on overall garment shape and even pressure to create the shape. That's a compromise for comfort over shape so I'd think about this for longer wear events over more extreme shape wear. After that the design looks better. A light gusset means it always goes back on consistently to the same position - important if the dress is anywhere near the upper line of the slip. I find it a close matching nude so it doesn't stand out under a lace yoke. There's a tiny strip of silicon inside the top which is keeping it in place under strapless tops. Just enough padding on the bra to create some shape and hold firms, but I can't comment on the comfort and support for you ladies needing it. The material seems smooth enough that lighter dresses fall on it better, move and look better.
I didn't struggle as much as others have stated to get this on. It feels fabulous to wear, and definitely smoothies out all those lines you want to hide. Gives you the confidence you need too. I love it.
