A81996 - Kathleen Kirkwood Sonic Slimmers boy oh boy Shorts
They fit fine
I wanted white. The blue fits fine, but it is really ugly.,
I love these slimmers so much I ordered two more. They do not chafe, they leave no lines on your legs or bulges and they are super comfortable. I am waiting to order more when they come back in stock.
I ordered a black & a nude in Lge. Wish I had ordered two other sets. What I like about these is that they do smooth you out. They are comfortable. The legs don't rollup, nor does the waist roll down. But, the kicker for me was the fabric! Most of the shapers or control shorts are made of a fabric that does not allow your pants to glide over the fabric like these do! I absolutely detest my garments fighting with my foundation wear! It drives me nuts. This fabric is silky and so your outer garments just slides right over them, be that a dress, pants or a skirt. Kathleen, please consider making these again, and doing one that is cut in a capri length...This elminates that light bulge at the end of the short seen under pants. Though, yours didn't do that! A very nice surprise. They are a bit tough to pull on but like the other QVC customer states, they do stretch with the warmth of your body. Yea! Win, win for me.!
Not my size
I ordered this item in a large (I'm a size 16) "WRONG". There was no stretch, and there was no way I could have gotten them up past my knees. Would fit a child, not a grown woman. Guess what, it went back quickly.
This is really a waste of money. This has no slimming or control at all. BACK IT GOES.
I live in these!
Think of these more as longer smoothing underwear than strong shapers. I bought two, nude and black, both in 1X. I normally wear a size 18-20. I fit into a size 18 tall Dream Jeannes jeans and a XL in Women with Control pants. I have been wearing these Sonic Slimmers under everything. They are much more comfortable than regular underwear, which have a tendency to creep up. These are smoothers, but do not hold me in tightly–just enough to feel contained, but not squished. They are smooth and easy to get on; don't let the small size when you first see them put you off. Just keep pulling them up. They fit really well when your body heat warms them up. The only negative is they are probably going to be a little too warm for summer, but I have the new Jockeys for that reason, and they are equally great. Another version in a thinner or lighter material would be very helpful. So far, I've washed them in cold water in the sink and hung them up to dry. They dry very quickly, which is great for travel.
Product ineffective as a shaper.
It wasn't difficult to put on, but I felt no control. The waist was too loose. It was pretty but just not up to the task at hand.I will launder and return it.
Did not even attempt to get this on!!
I took one look and realized that the small I ordered would not fit over one thigh let alone my hips!! I have work Spanx for years. Thought this might be a good alternative. Maybe if I ordered an ex, ex large (I am a size 8) it would have fit. I have no doubt it would have made me look slimmer but I don't enjoy suffering that much!! I sent them back.
Based on my recent experience with other types of support garments rolling down, I sized up to a size Large and this was a mistake. The garment was too long in the rise, reaching my bust line. I would not have minded the extra coverage, however the top still kept rolling down and would not stay up, even when I tried pinning to my bra! I ordered the sonic slimmer top in a size M and it fits better however the bottom of this garment tends to roll up, though not as bad as the Shorts. So, I don't think it's a size issue but more of a design issue.
Fabulous shaper...I've got nude and black..you don't even know you are wearing a shaper....does exactly what it says it does...washed them many times in the washer...absolutely no problems..very well made...air dryed and put in dryer in error, and they still came out great and didn't shrink!
DO NOT FIT
This was the worst pair undergarments I've ever gotten. I'm fairly slim but not in stomach area! I couldn't get these above my kness. I ordered my regular size. They are awful!!!! The lady was right about not fitting Barbie.
Waste of money
Loved the feel of the fabic and thought "wow, love these!", but soon discovered the quality was nothing to compare with Spanx. Even after handwashing and line drying the tummy panel came apart. And now after several months of use the waistband and leg bands have completely ripped away from the body of the suit. I am not a big person (size xs). Save your money on this item! I have decided to send the pair back to QVC and they can dispose of them!
