Rated 4 out of 5Â by Marilyn 27 good
Good quality, helps smoothen the extra flaps and flatten the tummy especially after gaining some weight after pregnancy.
I'll advise trying it out in the store first to get your exact size,as on line orders for such products may not be returnable.
Major down side of product is the opening at the crotch hence not convenient if you need to use the toilet urg ntly.Poppers ideal

This is the most comfortable type of this underwear I've ever had and found myself excited about going out. Sadly let down by the gusset area - no press studs - just an opening which has to be prised apart at the toilet. First time at the loo peed myself as the design in this area is awful. Had to wash and get changed before my night out.
Tried on a second occasion and exactly the same thing happened - was totally embarrassing and uncomfortable sitting on a chair in a posh hotel with wet gusset and when I stood up the chair was soaked through too!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LOO 4 CAR Did what it said on the Label
The product did what it was designed to do the only negative was that the band around the bottom of the leg was really tight and would be visible if wearing a fitted dress.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Snidge Too big and long in the leg
I bought this in beige in the summer and loved it so much that I bought the black one to wear this winter. In comparison the fit is slightly larger I'd be tempted to go down a size. The legs are longer, coming down to just above the knee meaning that you can only wear it with skirts that fall below the knee. Unlike the beige one this one has elastic at the end which really digs into the area above the knee and feels like it's cutting off the circulation. Really disappointed and because it is considered an underwear garment I don't think I can return it :(
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Looloolocket Very comfortable
Smoothes out all the lumps and bumps, giving you a lovely curve under any outfit
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Lj1309 does what it says
I liked this idea that you can wear your own bra, it fitted well (I bought a smaller size for maximum effect). It worked very well but I did not like the opening at the crotch, not ideal, I sent this product back. Poppers might have been a better idea rather than just a slit.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ally Has seams and creates more lumps than it smooths
I wanted some body shaper underwear to wear under a body con dress - mainly to smooth out the dress line, rather than to appear smaller (I'm a size 10/12). However this product seemed to make my bum and upper thighs more lumpy (and didn't provide any of the bum lifting benefits many control products do). The bottom of the legs is also too tight meaning an obvious dent in the leg if the item you're wearing over the top is tight at that point. (And I imagine a decent amount of discomfort if worn for longer than the few minutes I tried it on for)
Finally it has obvious seams around the bum - which would give you the appearance of a panty line, and up the torso, which I find a strange design decision in an item used to smooth the silhouette.
May be good if you just want it to slim you underneath a relatively loose item of clothing (though I really think the legs would be uncomfortable) but if you want to wear under any kind of body con outfit, this is not the way to go.
