Cami Shaper by Genie Set of 3 Shaping Camisoles
Good and bad
I like them when they work with my clothing, but many times I can't wear them due to the cut. Either the top of the strap shows at the shoulder, or farther down the chest. I really wish they were cut differently. And I'm not talking about low cut tops (I don't own any) or off the shoulder items either. Disappointing.
Don't buy this.
I should have listened to the other reviews. The modesty pads are terrible but the most annoying thing was the constant riding up of the camisole. I was repeatedly tugging at it and finally I said no more. They are on their way back.
I received this item while I was away, so I didn't try them on right away. Sometime after I was home I tried them and they were more uncomfortable than the others i had.bought After about an hour I noticed it had moved up over my breast, and no matter what I did they kept moving up. I have ordered the ones where you could take the pads out if you wanted. Those were so comfortable you could sleep in them. Every-time I see them in my dresser I get mad that it was to late to send them back, and I do think I'm about a month to soon to send them back with the Xmas returns. So if you do want to try these try them right away!
Just received the 3 set of cami shapers. Instructions said if you are big busted go up one size. I am 134 lbs. 5.3 and a 36 D cup. I ordered X-L. The bottom of the chest band literally sits right across my nipples. There is not enough cup for my boobs. I bought these to wear under pajamas and T-shirts at home. However if I size up again the rest of the cami will be to big. The material is very soft I don't think of shaper when this comes into mind because it is not thin rather thick. It is definitely comfortable to sleep in just can't believe for an XL there is not enough room for my boobs these are intended for small breasts.
Pads are wrinkled - defective
Wanted to keep this...even though very HOT to wear. The wrinkled modesty pads was a deal breaker.......not a good look. Have to send back.

So Comfortable and Versitile!! I wear them under my Sweaters and they firm me and keep me warm! LOVE THEM!! Wish they came in more colors....I would buy every color!!! Highly recommend them!!!!
Wanted to love it, but ...
Length is great, compression is perfect. but it does ride up over the bust. Also, the modesty pads can get a little wonky and folded up. No real way to fix it except to keep messing with it. Size is good. I think maybe ladies with implants can keep the bust in place. But not me.
Makes you THICKER!
I was sad to find these made me feel so much larger in my clothes due to the thickness, which only gets worse after washing. The bra pads do not stay in place and the material is not compatible with any of my shirt materials - it did not go under other fabric well, but rather kind of "stuck" to a spot on my shirt and stayed there, not at all flattering. I was just looking for some light help, not a miracle, but did not help in any way. Made me look like I had MORE fat, like an old cartoon lady in an old-timey swimsuit :-) I actually look better with nothing under my shirt rather than these!
Great Cami Shapers
I love these Cami Shapers. I love them so much I just ordered another set. They are great shapers. They feel great and look great. The pads tend to overlap but they are real easy to fix. I highly recommend these shapers.
The pads inside the camisoles kept 'overlapping' impossible to straighten them out.... I had to cut them out. Very dissagpointed.
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!!!!!!!!!
