Kathleen Kirkwood aBRAcadaBRA WYOB Torsette Cami
Works well, straps a little tight
I ordered the missy one size. I wear a QVC medium and this shaper fits. It smooths me out just fine, but the straps feel a little tight. I will continue to use -- the price is nice.
I bought this one and the more expensive Kathleen Kirkwood item... and I like this one a lot better. It holds me in the same as the more expensive one, so why pay more? I love the idea of wearing my own bra... now that I finally have bras that fit me correctly! I've been wearing the kind that smash your chest; it didn't really matter because my bras didn't fit anyway. Now that I actually wear the right size (and am lifted and separated!), why smash myself? This torsette is definitely the way to go!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME??
First let me say that I am a size L.....I purchased the plus size and it was so tight I don't know how anyone that wears a true plus size could ever wear this garment. Second, it doesn't stay down, as others have stated, it rolls up. Don't these designers try these garments on different size fit models before they bring them on the Q?? I just don't get it.
Finally Found a Shaper That Works
I have a drawer full of shapers that do not work and have returned as many This one is absolutely the best. I ordered the missy size. I am 5'1" 105 lbs but needed something to smooth the waist area and upper back--it is perfect and not too tight to make it uncomfortable. It is not too warm when the weather is really hot. I ordered the nude and went back for both of the other colors. It does not roll up--fits like it was custom made just for me! Thank you Kathleen.
Hugs all the right spots
I bought this mostly for the high back feature. I don't think I have ever seen a shaper that tames the "above the bra" area and this one does the trick. I wore it all day and it was comfortable and cool-and I mean in Texas in June. I will wear this under all my tee shirts and knits and feel confident I look good from the backside
I love the material and the snug fit, but the straps are not adjustable and at the end of the day it gives a tight fit at the shoulders leaving red marks on each side. I have had no problem with it ridding up and I especially like that feature,like others I have purchased elsewhere.
this would be a great purchase just to help feel "puller together" and was liking the fact that you could wear any bra. The first thing i noticed was how tight it felt over my shoulders. I knew that if I wore it i would have a headache in minutes. Back it goes. I think I need a QVC break. Not having much luck lately... :-(
Not for those with curves
Great concept but those of us who has curves, this is not for us. You must be straight in order for this to work because the moment it was put on, it rolled and gathered at the waist, realizing it would not fit over my hips. Just not for me and got it but because I got as a gift in nuded and wanted the black but as soon as I tried it on, I canceled it. Too bad I can't return the one I have.....
BEWARE! ROLLS UP WHEN YOU SIT
I bought this in nude and when I tried it on I loved what this did to smooth my middle out..... UNTIL I sat down and it rolled up from my hips to my waist. Would be perfect if it were a bodysuit. Sadly, yet another postage payment to return it.
Flimsy and NO Control
Ordered two of these (one in black, one in nude) and they arrived today and I have already sent them back. It provided no control, didn't hold me in at all and the bottom rolled up as soon as I got it on. If you're a plus size, this is not going to slim you down or give you a better shape. I'm a 1X and it did nothing for me except make me look like a stuffed sausage. I think this is made for slim ladies who don't think they're thin enough. Since they don't have any extra body fat to hold in, they imagine this is doing something for the fat they don't have.
This rates as one of my worst purchases ever. I gave one star for the great idea. But the minute I put this on, it rolled up. Forget that! I dont have time to fidget all day pulling this down and I did feel like a sausage and I chose the correct size. Not happy......
GOOD BUT NOT PERFECT
Would like to have given this 5 stars, but no such luck.....when I wore this over
my pantyhose............it would slip up around my waist...........so I will not be
wearing this with stockings......
