Cami Shaper by Genie Set of 3 Shaping Camisoles
More of a smoother, not a shaper
The best thing I can say about these camisoles is that they are comfortable. The do NOT shape, but may smooth out a few rolls. I bought these mainly to wear to work and wearing them all day is no problem; however, I would like more control. The modesty pads should be made to stay in the camisole as taking them out and putting them in constantly makes the material separate and ruins them. I decided to leave them in and that also ruined them, so mine are now in the trash. They do not add bulk or size, so why must they be removable? Genie, please add some lift to the bust area, more control and permanent modesty pads and you will have an almost perfect product!!!
When I bought these "shapers", I had such high hopes because I really love the genie bra!! When I wore one of them for the first time... the bra part kept riding up towards my head. It wouldn't stay in place. The modesty pads kept riding to the top of the straps and wouldn't stay in place. I had to continuously make adjustments... pulling the bra part down to my breast area and away from my neck. The modesty pads will NOT stay in place to give me the coverage that I need to not make me self conscious about being cold, if you know what I mean. I wouldn't actually give this item a star at all, but that wasn't an option. I would never recommend this to anyone....unless I didn't like them!!!!!!!!!
Works for me
I guess I'm an exception...I love the product. I agree...the pads need work, actually have removed mine. I'm not "expecting" the product to make me look like something I'm not. It does, however, smooth and support and I have not had any trouble with it rolling up. Have worn over and over and they have held up well through many washings. I do NOT put in dryer. I am a 40B and ordered the 1X. I am somewhat pear shaped...if this helps.
Good, But Needs some improvement...
I love these, However it does need some improvement..... For one the pads in them move way to much and at times this can be very annoying when trying to reshape it so u can put it on.... perhaps in the future they should consider finding a way to sew in the pads so the pads don't move around so much or make an option for those of us who would like to remove the pads all together.... other than that the over all fit and feel is great. you really hardly notice you even have it on.... I would get some more in the future if i need them...
Not a good fit as the Pads constantly move around.
I would not recommend this item. Kept too long to return.

These cami's are so thick and not well designed. they are cut up to high and ride up constantly . the removable modesty pads will not say in place either, because the cami is riding up. I did not return them because I am hoping to wear them in the winter with out the pads. I sized up as was instructed. I am a 38 C.
Not Quite what I expected
I was hoping these camis' would be just what I was looking for. I am disappointed that the pads move and they are hard to get back in place. I did not return these but I probably should have. Also the bottom rides up some and I have to readjust it. I like the three different colors. Once I get everything in place I like them.

I would have given this item 4 stars, however the cami is cut too high in the arm pit area. It feels like a garment you would wear after having a surgical procedure. I am a 34A in the bust and ordered the correct sizing, however; if you don't mind pulling at the garment because it feels restrictive--go for it. You will love the all over smoothing affect and the removeable padding and for the price, it's fine. Great for sleeves, a fashion faux-paux for sleeveless. Hope this helps
DO NOT PROVIDED ANY SUPPORT/CHANGED IN THE WAY MY CLOTHES FIT OR HOW I LOOK IN THEM
Practical and comfortable
I like they are comfy not tight. I wear them underneath everything just to help smoothness. Colors are just perfectly stapled.
Does not stay in place. Rides up over hip and bunches up around waist.

I purchased these because I wanted smoothing, but did not want to feel uncomfortable, have to wear a bra underneath, or fight to get my undergarments on. These are perfect for me. I am in Arizona and have worn these on hot days they are comfortable and definitely help smooth out the muffin top. I feel comfortable not wearing my regular bra underneath, and I am larger than average in that area. The pads in these are not as nice as the ones in the Genie bras, that is the only reason I did not give these 5 stars. I am looking forward to wearing these in the colder months as layering pieces.
