Kathleen Kirkwood WYOB Cushion Strap Bodysuit with Lift
Best Shaper EVER!
I've tried many body shapers. Tops, bottoms, one pieces etc.....
This is by far THE BEST BODY SHAPER AROUND! I would size down one as they do run big, but believe me you will not be disappointed!!!!! Best shaper ever!
This is a nice bodysuit. It is a little big. I like that you can wear your own bra with it. The straps are pretty thick though. But overall I'd recommend it.
Best Ever Bring Back
I usually wear another brand of shapers but decided to try this one, it is the best ever. I have been watching to order more please bring them back. Sadly I left two at the laundry mat. I live in Texas I wear these year round they are not hot. I am 5'11 ant they are plenty long.
Help I need more in size L.
I ordered 1x based on reviews and description. It's not tight enough to be making a difference. It's been interesting getting in and out of this for going to the bathroom. I was mostly looking for this to pull in my gut and it didn't. Also to smooth out the back fat that bulges out of my bra, and it did a bit, but it also seems to have added to that as alot bulges out. It's loose in the legs and doesn't lift anything - I think it is supposed to lift my butt but it's loose in that area - all my fat is in my gut.
Expected better hold after reading all the reviews, but it made me look more round in form fitting dress then the shaping in the photo.
Better than spanx & COMFORTABLE!!
I have several spanx variations & was hesitant to purchase this one. Glad I gave it a try. It is the MOST comfortable shapewear I own. It is not binding & it does not dig into your shoulders or leg, nor does it ride up, NO panty lines & it does lift you. I am a size 12, but ordered up one size to a large for comfort. The fit is perfect. Would love the nude in Large if it comes back in stock. You won't need any other shapers. With all the panels, you can see them in the front & back when you are wearing form fitting dresses/top made with thinner materials which is a bummer. Aside from that it is smoothing & it does not smoosh you & I forget im wearing it. Incredible fit. Please consider making nudes for darker skin tones so we are not stuck buying black all the time.
I have worn Spanx for a long time but after reading reviews about the Kathleen Kirkwood body shaper I thought I would give this one a shot and I am so glad I did. This body shaper is so much more comfortable than any I have ever worn before. It's a thicker material than the Spanx body shaper and does not pinch in the shoulders at as it has nice broad straps. I will be purchasing a second to add to my wardrobe. Thank you QVC for offering such a superior product.
I was really, really hoping I'd love this item but was a little disappointed. Another review mentioned the size issue and that's exactly my problem. I wear between a large and ex large in tops and a 14 in pants. I ordered the large and it is too big. It also bunches around my waist line. I'm 5'4" and it doesn't seem to really fit my short torso. I have a shareware piece that is a wyob that is like a torture device. You hook several hooks in the front that's then covered by a zipper. It has metal boning and really holds me in. However, I was looking for something a little less industrial and wanted something soft. Now I'm trying to decide to keep it or try a medium. I just don't want to keep paying shipping for something that is definitely sized wrong.
this shaper didn't fit me right the legs were a little long and bothered me also showed to much back fat didn't smooth anything sending back. Think I will try spanx.
I like to wear shapewear as it find it more comfortable as it's all in one. All I could find in the stores are those with underwire (which I don't like at all) and the design like Kathleen's which I was unsure about to begin with. For the summer months I do have to wear a little more padding than usual (because of the AC) and wear those bras that you step into so I thought I'd give this bodysuit a try. WOW. . .the feel is great and without the underwire is so much more comfortable. Initially I ordered one of each color (L) and reordered three more of each color. No digging in the shoulders, no clinging with my tops, my slack's waistband does stay in place better (with the other shapewear I was always tugging at my slack's waistband as it seemed to slip with the shiny material). Everything is smooth and with a fine fit and feel. Another reason I like to wear shapewear is that I had broken some ribs and there's a bit more support/compression that I find helpful. I asked my husband what he thought and he said, WOW, you sure look smooth! That made me think of the song, "Smooth Operator." Smooth and comfortable!!
Have trouble finding shape wear for my 6'2" body. This fit is amazing. Nice quick and easy hook opening if you need to hit the bathroom urgently. straps are comfortable, no digging in the shoulders.
Best Shaper Ever!!
I have tried all brands of shapers, even one of Kathleen's, but this one FAR rates better than all of them with it being a full coverage with NO bulges. The crotch hook and eye closures are really easy to manuever . I would suggest the panel that goes over the abdomen, be made with a MORE control fabric. Also that the armholes come up higher at the back panel and also a little more control at the bra band area in back. With mine I still have a little bulge at the bottom of my back band of my bra.
That would make it perfect!!
