I ordered this garment to provide more post surgical support then spanx and more comfort then the Designer Verona Post surgical compression garment put on me after sugery. You have to follow the size guide so you need a measuring tape. I initially mis measured myself and ordered a Large as I teeter between the suggested sz L and sz XL. I fit in my garment on the last hook. It was a challange to close the hooks, even a XL would take patience, but it does its job, it compresses. I am not giving it 5 stars because you can see the the hook crease through clothes.
Ok. So once you find a fit it is great!! I love it plus the thong underwear part is a plus. No worries about going to the bathroom with it on. Don’t wear underwear with it my opinion. If your insecure wear a panty liner to attach to the thong. Helps with wearing it for more than one day. Hand wash and get a back up. I have 2 of in different sizes because it slimmed me down.
It's perfect my body has changed a lot i been using this for 6 years now
