Cami Shaper by Genie Set of 3 Shaping Camisoles
They help to slim, shape and keep me warm. I'm back to buy a second set. They occasionally ride up (that is why I gave 4 stars) but I can handle that. Highly recommend this purchase.
Very comfortable, great quality
These feel great on, smooth, comfortable, and do offer medium level firming. The weight is on the thicker side so may be heavy for warmer weather, will have to test it out once spring arrives, but so far they work great. I even sleep in them! Some reviewers feel it does not separate and define your chest, but I don't feel that way, I have worn it with and without a separate bra and am pleased with how it defines and lifts me. They should be viewed as comfortable and for every day, they are not "sexy", but do serve the purpose. Hold up great to wash after wash and are super economical. Very happy I decided to purchase them.
I sized down
I wanted firmer smoothing and ordered down 1 size. The bra area doesn't work, so I wear my Genie bra under it. Love the results! This is the best shaping garment I own. I'd like matching support / smoothing leggings, too. I hear Genie makes them. I'd like to have them available on QVC.
Better than the Genie Bra
For me the Genie Bra is only a causal bra offering no support, but reasonable comfort. Where the bra lacks the Cami is better. the Cami is very comfortable, offers good smoothing, not to tight, and love the overall fit. I do find that I need to wear a bra under if I'm going out of the house, but the bottom stays in place and is not too hot under blouses. I plan on buying more. That said I don't like to pads either, I just take them out.
I love this item! I am a size between a small and a medium. Spoke with representative and got the medium but the item kept riding up in the back. Returned the original order and got a large and now it fits perfect, no riding up in the back. And because of the way the cami is made and the material it's made of I have no problem with the bra part of the cami. This does not offer a dramatic shaping (get Spanx for that) but it offers a smooth look under your clothes. I live in a warmer climate so I use this as an under shirt under my winter clothes and it's better than a T shirt/under shirt. Perspiration doesn't collect under the cami like it does with a T shirt/under shirt. The only thing I can complain about is it the choice of colors. I would like a choice of 3 white, 3 black or my choice 3 nude.
Not worth purchasing
Did not support the breasts, Kept slipping down out of the cup. Very uncomfortable. Couldn't wait to get home to get out of it.
Not a shaper, not a bra!
How this can be called a shaper is beyond me. Does not work as a bra cami either. The bra rides up over the girls and offers no support and the pads are terrible. Wrinkled and cheap!! Can't see where it's holding anything in anywhere!! Going back to my former brand and will never buy anything from this company again!!!
Nice Fit and Attractive
I recently saw the presentation for these and decided to order them. I was looking for a top I could wear in place of a bra but be modest enough to wear as a tank with full coverage and also be stylish. When I received my order and opened the package I found the directions regarding the modesty pads confusing. I also had trouble finding the opening in the cami to get the pads in/out. I finally found the opening located way back under the arm. Once I figured all of this out I did have to do a lot of adjusting to the pads so they laid smooth but pulled the black cami on and though obviously it was tight and needed some additional adjusting it ended up fitting perfectly. I've been wearing it similarly to a tank under open blouses and sweaters and love it. My boyfriend commented several times when we went out that the cami looked very sexy on me, which was great to get a nice compliment like that. I ordered true to size and can't wait to wear the other colors. I'm glad it has been working out so well for me and am really happy I ordered them. I also think it is a good value getting a three pack in three different colors.
This cami is a great smoother and I love the length. It is also a great addition for the colder weather we have been having. However, if you don't wear a bra, the girls are completely smooshed! I am a size med. and I bought a large.
Great shaper, actually wore it under a sheer blouse. Looked like I had a tank top on. Will order more in the future.
Not a Good Value
I should have listened to the reviews!! I am a size 8 and wear a D cup. I purchased a medium in the cami. I love Genie Bras and hoped this would be similar in comfort and shaping. Within a few minutes of putting on the cami the seams under the "bra portion" of the cami had risen over my breasts giving me a weird, flattened shape. I had to constantly pull the cami down and it wouldn't even stay in place when it was tucked in. One of the worst items ever purchased! Sent them right back.
Hate It !!!!!
Absolute worst shaper I have ever had. I like the fabric and the fit along the waist, however, the bra area is impossible. I have Genie bras and I love them, thought this would be the best of both worlds. Can't return them because after I ordered this item I had two shoulder surgeries and for 4 months have not been able to wear anything with a strap over my shoulder. So my 30 days have run out. I have only worn three times and had a problem every time. The modesty pads are the cheapest things invented, lumpy and will not stay in place. There is absolutely no support in the bra area and nothing to keep it in place, it keeps riding up. Very, very, very disappointed. I am now in the middle of my work day and have had to remove the pads. Cant wait for the day to be over so I can get it off and never put it back on.
