It does smooth over the belly, but I think shapewear is just a big lie. whatever is squeezed in also gets pushed up and has to come out somewhere and that causes the panties to roll at the top because of the excess. there is compression at the tummy but the waist band maybe needs to be a tad higher so as not to roll. I will wear under jeans but these panties did not look good under a material hugging dress because of the roll top. I did order the correct size, they fit the tummy well to compress so if I went up a size for a wider waistband not sure they would hold in the tummy.
I received my black lace shapewear panties this morning. I ordered Medium. I'm male, 5 ft 9 in, 164 pounds. My waist is 39 inches. (Well, I wish it wasn't, but that's according right now to Tailorform.) I knew when I ordered these that I was taking a chance, but WOW! THEY ARE FANTASTIC! Smooth, soft, extremely sensual. They fit PERFECTLY, but if you wish to be more careful, then you might prefer a size Large against similar body measurements. I'll explain:
Maidenform company makes VERY top-shelf, exquisite items intended for women, and various Maidenform shapewear styles I already had reflect a certain old-fashioned, correct caution in Maidenform's approach. In dance and in contemporary styles, and as well for males finally taking girlfriends' advice that men need not look atrocious nor feel atrocious in their oblivious choices of the worst underwear styles they could possibly wear, there are more and more customers looking for beautiful things to wear underneath tites or jeans. Not only that, but in this new, incidentally HUGE market-extension, males are still wishing-and-hoping for better fit creating better bodies. So companies like Maidenform are going to be shipping to women who go for (1) total comfort, or (2) mostly comfort but some wishful-thinking, willing-to-work-for-it customers too. Now, both men and women are likely to be ordering, and I think males will be at least as hopeful as females in wanting to risk the slightly tighter, therefore more demanding, sizes. With this company, though, it is not really a risk at all. These beautiful panties fit SO perfectly they are truly a fantasy. Thanks Maidenform!
Definitely liked them. Our purchased too more of my original one. They weren’t as seamless as another style I purchased. Where the lace starts you see the seam. However, I still purchased more because the lace detail made them sexier and I wanted options.
