A13889 - Carol Wior Bodysuit with Waist Cincher
Does ok job but not really impressed. For the price I expected more.
Well, this is much better than the "other," MUCH more expensive, compression garments that Q sells, BUT, it still needs some fine tuning. The bust area is GREAT - it does not flatten one out, or turn you inro a "uniboob." The midsection is GREAT - it does, comfortably, hold one in properly AND comfortably, BUT, the panty/bottom part should be made of the same material as the midsection ! My jeans and other pants "clung" to the fabric. It did not provide a cling free bottom ! AND, because the material is different from the midsection, and there is seam line, there is a PANTY LINE !!! A BIKINI PANTY LINE !!!!!! It shows up under knit pants and dresses ! So, Carol, please make this simple fix ! It is comfortable, but, I just can't keep it because of the panty line and the clingyness of my outerwear to my innerwear ! Too bad !
I have 4 of these in various colors and love them as mentioned in my recent review. I've been checking back for the black in smaller sizes as that's still on my wish list. Carol, if you're reading this, please bring more! Also, it would be great to have long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves for winter layering. I was in high school in the 70's and bodysuits were quite popular and I had several. One of my favorites that I'd love to see again, was a button up white blouse styling that was stretchy!! Hint, hint...
Really holds in the areas that pinch an inch and keeps it smooth and figure flattering. Also, works well when layering under lace tunics too. I would recommend that the panty be the same material as the waist cinching part, as it would add a little bit more compression overall. What I do like is it is truly "moderate" compression, which makes it more comfortable.
I love this body suit it fits very well and keeps me held in . I bought this for a dress I am wearing to a party but will wear it everyday it feels so good. I bought 2 one white 1 nude just love them.
This is a great bodysuit! I tried the "other" brand and it was horrible and promptly returned. I really just wanted something to smooth me out and provide some modesty for my summer wrap dresses and tops. I also had some lighter weight white summer blouses that I wear to work with skirts and little cardigans or short jackets that really needed a little something under them. I started out with a white one and was so pleasantly surprised that I ordered another white and a brown and now I'm back for the grey. As soon as the black returns in my size I'll get 2 of those as well. I ordered up a size as that's what was in stock and they're perfect. These are great layering pieces and for the money you can't go wrong. More please!
The Best Body Suit!!!
This is the best body suit I have ever had. It is easy to get into and outof and it smoothes you out. I went up a size, but probably should not have. When they get my proper size back in I will order another one. I am keeping this one though. It does not flatten your breasts like some body suits do and the straps are comfortable. I have no problem with it at all and highly recommend it.
WIDER STRAPS PLEASE !!!!!
I am a 38DD-40DDand the skinny straps cut right into my shoulders. I needthe firm shaping in the belly area, and that part of the bodysuit was WONDERFUL !!! I ended up giving them away after awhile because they just were NOT comfortable in the shoulder area. Please, please make the same boysuit,same control, but wider straps. Thanks.
Pros and Cons
Pros: GREAT amount of compression. The body suit really smoothes out lumps in a significant way - without becoming a bra minimizer! It's not going to make you a size smaller, but it will keep your wobbly bits from wobbling or making ripples under clothing.
Cons: 1 - SUPER stiff fabric around the edges of the hook and eye closure. This WILL hurt your thighs if you don't wear stockings (assuming your thighs are like mine and touch when I walk - thinner thighed gals might not have this problem). I solved this by putting Dr Scholls moleskin padding around the offending edges. Worked like a charm. 2 - TERRIBLE seam placement! If the dress weren't tight, I wouldn't need to wear a body suit under it...therefore, putting a big huge seam at the bikini panty waist gives you a terrible panty line under any tight fitting dresses. Stiffer fabric might not show the line, but to me, this was the most eggregious flaw of the body suit.
For me... a MILLION times better than Spanx!!
I have tried many different control garments. I've tried several different sizes and makes of Spanx products (all of which were horrible). I thought the bodysuit would be a good change. First and most important thing that I noticed... it actually stays up!!! It's not like everything else that pulls up or others that roll down. I'm between size 14-16 misses. All of my weight is in my stomach. I have a larger chest and a small butt. It stays up on my chest well. But, naturally, it gives me a "wedgie" occasionally because I don't exactly fill that part up. I wear it EVERY day. It's not a bother like all the other ones! I mean, it has literally become a second nature to put this on under everything that I wear. It's that comfortable for me. In my opinion, they run a little big. I ordered a 14 but wish I had got a 12, too. As far as the crotch area goes... no problem for me. I still wear my underwear and I can unsap it with one hand when I got to the bathroom. It's simple. Buy IT!!!
I purchased this bodysuit to take on vacation it's great especially in the bust area. I've tried many other bodysuits that you have to wear a bra as well and always felt like i was suffocating. With this body suit it's the opposite! Love it. The crotch area was not a problem for me.
Gave it 4 stars due to the straps. But I have to say that I do like it alot. I ordered another one in white!
waitin for #2
I ordered the black one about a month ago.I read the reviews & was a little scared of the "scratchy crotch" Once I tried it on I was in love!!! It didn't feel like a body girdle,it gives room to move & the upper bra area is the best. It doubles as a cami top. I love the way it does give you the hourglass figure in the right place & the panty bottom is nice too.I wish I could wear it everyday cause it makes me feel sexy in everything. The one thing i'm not too thrilled with is the straps. They are way to thin & they get twisted in the little plastic adjuster which is very dainty (one of mine broke :( already) I ordered one size up & was very pleased with the fit. I ordered #2 my true size just for special occasions-lol. I really like it & can't wait for #2.
