Rated 5 out of 5Â by MissPhoebes Excellent Purchase
I bought this waist nipper to wear under a dress that was really cute but wasn't very flattering on me due to my large waist. I've tried spanx and other similar shapewear and nearly wrenched my back trying to get in and out of them. This item is very easy to get in and out of and it added just the right amount of support without being uncomfortable. I have worn it twice now, both times for most of the day. As others have mentioned in their reviews, an added bonus is the support that it gives your back. I am 5'3" and weigh 175 and bought a size XXL and it fits perfect. Giving 3 stars on value because the price was high.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Blossom48 Way too small
I used the size chart but still can't get it on. I need firm but it takes too much strength to hook the hooks to pull it closed and hook at the same time. Sending it back and will look for a pull on instead.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by sarahjeanne Sizing is off, not good for petite/short waisted
Pretty and seems well made, but sizing is off. My waist is 29", so I ordered a medium per the size chart; it wasn't tight enough to nip my waist. On the contrary, it made my waist size larger - not what I was looking for. It was also too long for my 4'11" frame - if I pulled it down far enough for the top to be below my bra like the photo, the bottom went past my hips. No good. I returned it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by rockytop55 exactly what I needed
This is comfortable and gives me just the right amount of support. It takes away my muffin top beautifully. I have washed it several times and it has held up well. It does not roll up from the bottom.
I received it on a Friday evening. The next day I put it on and wore it all day. I even exercised and did housework while wearing it. It was comfortable the whole day.
The only con I have is that if it is not centered exactly right, the "whalebone" at the top of the garment pokes me just next to my right armpit.
I purchased the black one. I am considering buying another one in a different color. I am 5' 3" and weigh about 195 lbs.
