Lipo in a Box Simply Shaping V-Neck SleevelessCami
TOO MUCH COMPRESSION
Usually wear L in Lipo, but in this I ordered XL. There was too much compression, so much so that I felt I couldn't breathe. As the others have stated, this does squash the chest. It also rolls up after a while. I think I'm too old to be tucking my tops into my undies (used to do that when I was a youngster). Liked the idea of a shaping cami, but this needs some work. If Lipo can fix the rolling and loosen the compression, I will buy this again, because it does smooth things out.
not good for me at all
i was shocked at how compressing this is- it was surprisingly uncomfortable and when the bottom rolled up, i felt like what I imagine it would feel like to be attacked by a boa constrictor. It is like a compression girdle from your hips to your shoulders. I couldnt wait to get it off. Needless to say, it is being returned. Sounds like it is working for others, but I personally cant handle the super squeezing. Plus the bottom starts to ride up, then it rolls up, and when this happens, look out .
Control and Shaping
This cami is great as it provides great 'jiggle control' while still shaping. But I must agree with the other reviewers: it does compress your cleavage. In theory it creates a minimizer effect to help a fuller bustline look smaller and smooths the line of your clothes (think of a that button down shirt that gaps at the button holes in the front; the cami minimizes that and smooths it out). The problem is this cami flattens the bust so much that the bust just looks wider, smashed together and block-like rather than curvaceous and full. Similar to the other reviewer, I tucked the neck-line of the cami beneath my bra and that even helped add a bit of lift, until the straps starting digging into my shoulder. The cami keeps its shaping and doesnt get stretched out even after multiple washings. Nice product overall.
I read the previous comment about compression in the breast area and this was also the case for me so I chose to just pull the top front below and tuck under my bra and it worked fine. I gave this a four ony becase of the top front, otherwise, this is a great shaping garment. So I would suggest improvement on it by making it a low scoop in front so that it does fit right below the bra and it will not "mash" the breast.
Did not care for
I am usually a size medium in QVC sizing (10-12) so I ordered this in my appropriate size. Unfortunately, the product compressed my chest area. I don't have the time and energy to try the next larger size. I will be returning.
