The best shareware ever! It took me awhile to put it on the first time, but it gave me true hourglass figure and great posture. The only complaint is that shoulder straps could be a little more stretchy, because after 30 mins they start to cut into the shoulder.
A little about my figure. I am standing 5.'4" tall. My waist is generally 30 and hips are 40 inches plus or minus inch now and then, but always proportionally. My thighs, though are about 2 inches too thick. The extra on the thighs pulls my buttcheeks to the sides and down, which is pretty common for 40+ years old woman. Plus, after my cesarean procedure I have a small fat roll right above the scar, and it's too stubborn to go away.
Most shapers I tried were tight enough in my butt, butt a little too lose in my waist, and way too tight on my thighs. Neither of them were long enough to cover knees (another storage box for fat and extra skin), so I could clearly see the bottom cutting through my leg right above the knee making my legs look like I have knee pads on!
I fought with this shaper for 10 minutes, adjusting every piece of fabric inch by inch, it was oh so tight! I thought it was too small, but this was my second order (first was sz S), and I was impatient :). When I finally squeezed myself in I looked 1000% better! Worth the price! All of the extra thigh was pulled in and up, giving a round, lifted buttock. And my waist was 2inches smaller in this shaper. I do realize that this does not make me lose inches, really. And the smaller waist is happening because my ribs and organs are being squeezed a little too tight. So it's not for a long wear. But it's a good reminder to tighten your stomach and straighten your shoulders.
I was actually complimented by a woman on my figure in this shaper. She wanted to take a profile pic of my body. So, it's worth the money, if you ask!
I bought this faja about 3 months ago and can confidently say that it is the most slimming girdle I have ever had. However, there is always a price to the price. It is INCREDIBLY uncomfortable. I love the feeling of being cinched in, but this will leave deep marks in your shoulders and back of your knees (if you have thick calves like me), as well as your upper-most inner thigh. It will make you look like a million bucks though. It cannot be worn with any dress unless it goes below the knee. Best worn with the strap that connects both bra straps in the front, so NO low cut tops unless you are willing to let the straps KILL you. This does eliminate a lot of options, but I wore this with yoga pants and my bf couldn’t tell I had it on. I’ve never looked so cinched and had NO cellulite show. If you have a lot of back fat, you will be fine. I got the XL and I’m a size 14, I may order a larger size to see if I can wear it with my wedding dress. The one with shorts is more comfortable but visible through some clothing.
Must refer to sizing chart before buying. Material is really nice, not very stretchy but works great
