Skinnygirl Lace Shaping Cupped Cami
What's with the sizing?
I foolishly listened to the person who said NOT to size up, because, in general, at the Q, I find that people who wear smaller sizes often complain that items run big, and people who wear the larger sizes complain that items run small. I normally wear a 34DD bra, and if I were to order a shaper, I would order a small (think Spanx). So..I ordered the 34D/DD. I was already skeptical because how can a cup fit a D or a DD? But, I figured I would take a chance. The price was crazy-good. Well, I slid it up over my hips..my ample bosom overflowing out of the cups, unable to hook the back..and it felt like I was being strangled at the gut..What's worse, is once in the garment, I could not figure out how to GET OUT of the garment...I was panicking! I literally considered taking a scissors to the shaper to free myself! I am not a large person..I am short..117 lbs, big chest, small waist, proportionate hips..typical hourglass shape in a shorter package..I almost always wear the smallest size in all QVC items..often, needing to return xxs because they are too BIG...if I could figure out my size, I would order every color available, because it is extremely pretty without being 'in your face' sexy. Under a cardi or blazer, this would have been fabulous. I'm not willing to keep trying sizes and paying return shipping...I'm disappointed that it didn't work out.
First off, let me start by saying DO NOT ORDER A SIZE UP!!! After reading other reviews, I ordered a size up and the shaper is a little big for me, but I did not want to bother with sending back. It is very sexy and will look great under a jacket. Being a woman carrying some extra weight around my mid-section, stronger shaping would be better for me, but at least it isn't uncomfortable. I got this as a Lunchtime Special, so I thought it was a great deal!
The product itself is actually quite lovely, but the sizing, well maybe this is for a real skinny girl. I take a 36 DD, I could not get it on! Not by stepping into it, not over my head, there was absolutely no give. The low rating is for the inconvenience of having to pay shipping to return this. If you are skinny you may get lucky.
Not for Me!
The cups were way too large and the midsection very tight. Did not like the fit at all. I ordered the 34b/c. Sending back!
I just received this cami in the smoke color and it's lovely. The lace is very nice and I love the underwire cups. I'm a DD+ and this fits nicely if a bit on the sexy side. Looking forward to wearing this under jackets for a great evening look. Thanks Bethanny!
This is a pretty camisole. Thank you to all the reviewers who recommended going a size up... I usually wear a 36 B and I ordered a 38 C... up in cup also... and stepped into it... I heard a small "rip" but fortunately, it is nothing visible.So be delicate with this. The larger size is perfect for me. I would not call it effective as shapewear, but it is comfortable as a camisole or light smoother, and it is nice and elegant. If you need something to really shape you and pull in some flesh, you have to stick with Spanx and suffer through the discomfort for the event.
At long last, Love!
Have been looking for the perfect functional, attractive shaper and have finally found it in this wonderful piece. I take the 42 D/DD, and it is sexy as well as functional . . . looks great under everything. I have bought five of these now and should never have to purchase another piece. The value is amazing.
Wonderful Product...waiting for more new ones...
I am a 42 DD bra size,
and I have trouble finding nice lingerie that not only fits,
but offers support and slimming,and is well priced.
The bra is well made and the look is wonderful.
I ordered both the 42DD and the 44DD,and will be keeping both.
The 42 DD is snug but sexy.
Thank you QVC and thank you Bethenny...you are way cool and savvy...
I hope you will come up with many more new desigs
for us well endowed girls,
Shopping QVC since 1997
This item is very well made. Sizing is on point but not much of a shaper. A nice bra and cami combo at a great price.
Beautiful cami. Looks really sexy. But SIZE UP!!! I wear a 36 b bought the 36 b/c and almost (but didn't) have to cut it off!. I am reordering in a 38. Hope it works because I can foresee lots of uses for this.
I brought two of these camis. After reading some other comments decided to go up a size which was the best advice by the way. I am a true 38C. I brought the camis in the 40 b/c and they fit perfectly. Hope this helps other to make up their minds too. The camis are ready pretty and sexy. I like that there's a bra built into the cami.
Love Love Love
Received yesterday. Perfect fit. Looks much more expensive than it is. Can't wait to wear. I ordered my normal size and I'm a larger size . Fit is amazing.
