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 bought 2 pair in the solid black (no lace) version. I'm 5'10' and 260 pounds, complete apple abdomen. My natural waist (when I have one) is right in the middle, I'm not low or high waisted. XXL came high over my waist in front, but, fit perfectly in the back (the top hits me over my belly button -weird but the back is perfect). Recently gained 125 lbs and started loosing weight ( now down 25#) and my middle is starting to sag. I was looking for some tummy support and these ABSOLUTELY have it. Fabulous support. I could see how these would be really great after pregnancy or if you had excess skin. Good construction and material. No pinching, binding, or poorly placed seams. They are worth the money. Four stars only because of the super high waist issue. I like them, but I will keep looking because they are just a bit to high in the waist. I might buy them again if I can't find something better.
Sizing was a little confusing coz it only mentions hip measurements. My hips are small but got the new mom belly poof. Other brands I’ve tried; and I’m at 36”waist, I had to get an XXL. I took a chance and followed this sizing and got a Medium. Yes it fits, a tiny bit snug but that keeps everything locked in better. A big pad fits— barely. So far it hasn’t given me indigestion (no single band to pinch your waist), but I do feel slight pressure all around. It does roll occasionally which is weird. Perhaps it depends on how fluffy I am that day?
Good, lightweight, shaper. I originally purchased the large, but returned for a medium. If you expecting a dramatic difference, this isn't for you. It's basically so you don't have to suck in constantly if you're wearing a tight skirt or dress. Also works well over tights for modesty.
I've been trying several different ways to eliminate undie lines while wearing my for fitting dresses. I actually like these better than many I have found. Giving a four as I don't like the line between the undie part and the waist....however they are extremely comfy and would buy again.
These panties do the trick. I am 5”7 130 lbs but I have extra pilsbury rolls from babies. These panties hold everything in and give me a smooth figure. They are not too hot and don’t slip down, for the most part. Pretty comfortable and affordable.
