Does what it is supposed to do
I bought this to go under a very slinky dress and to hide a baby belly and it did exactly what it was supposed to do, plus it was very comfortable, I wasn't fighting the urge to take it off all night, in fact I didn't even know it was there.
what a great fit and soo comfortable. I especially like the added panel underneath this slip it smooth's without riding up
Does the trick!
I bought this to go under a slim fitting dress I have bought to wear to a friend's wedding in December. I just wanted something that would give me cleaner lines as the dress is a little on the neat side! I am pear-shaped and am probably about a size 11 so when it comes to slim fitting things I sometimes buy a 12 in order to get them over my hips. With this I took a gamble and went for the 10 based on previous reviews that said if you want it to do what its meant to do then buy your size. As with any item like this, you have to wriggle abit to get into it, but once it was on it fit really well. For me I found the tummy panel is fine, however, it does seem to roll over slightly at the top. This won't be a problem for me as my dress as some ruching in this area, but it may be a problem for others. While I have tried it on with my dress and I think it will do the trick nicely, I have not yet worn it for any length of time so can't comment on how it fairs in that respect.
The fabric feels nice and has good structure. I have not washed it yet so cannot comment on this. I bought when there was 20% off so the price was great in comparison to similar items elsewhere. If you just want something to give you cleaner lines, but don't actually need much sucking in then I would recommend this product.
I ended up returning this slip after I tried it on as i wasn't convinced it made my outfit look better. I bought the size 10 but it was a bit big, and although it stretched a bit, there were a lot of wrinkles and they showed through. It was quite stiff and I kept fidgeting in it and adjusting it, and on that basis wasn't prepared to wear it in real life!
Not fit for purpose
Snug fit as you'd expect from shape wear but it didn't smooth anything! It actually gave me lumps and bumps! I bought to preserve dignity in a very slinky long dress. Didn't need it to hold anything in as I've not really got wobbly bits, but the fabric on my tummy area rippled and just made me look like I had a belly when I don't. So I risked my dignity and went without
Really good idea cos would have been able to wear with strapless posh frock. But was on the small side. Even though I've got big hips and legs, my waist will normally fit in a 14 and I needed the 16 in this one. Unfortunately, the control over the tummy stops too high up, as others had commented; a good idea but sadly not implemented well.
Wore this under a very fitted dress. Smoothed out any lumps and bumps and you couldnt tell I was wearing anything under the dress! Product was comfortable, stayed in place all night even after hours of dancing!!
confortable but disapointed.
This will be an amazing product if you just need smoothing out. But if you need to be sucked in and shaped then this isn't really for you. I needed my tummy area and hips sucked in but the control pannel doesnt come down low enough and just gave me a bigger roll along the bottom of my hips and tummy. If you move the skirt further down your body to correct this it just rides up and sent a bulge above the skirt. I have sent this product back.
On a more positive note it is very comfortable and can not been seen under clothing and does not inpead walking at all. I am a size 14, ordered a size 14 and it was a good fit apart from the above. I chose this product instead of pants because I wanted something a little prittier then "Bridget Jones style".
