Spanx "Hide & Sleek" Full Panty Bodysuit
GREAT FOR EVERY DAY WEAR
It's medium, but it doesn't look like you lost a couple of pounds. I ONLY put 4 stars, because it's so hard to go to the bathroom when you're in a hurry.
Spanx you should consider making Velcro. Thank you. LOVE my Spanx. Also, thank you for the easy pay, I truly appreciate it.
Every day wear
I wear one of these almost every day. They are very comfortable. These are not meant to suck you in, but they do smooth out and lumps and bumps, enabling my clothes to glide on, jeans to not dig in at the waist, and cover my bra lines. As far as using the restroom, I have mastered the one hand opening of the three hook and eye closures. When in a hurry it is easy enough to just pull it to the side.
I know there are lots of less expensive brands of bodysuits, I own several, but this is the one I always end up wearing. I have had them for years, and they have held up very well, even throwing in the washer and dryer after every use. A friend of mine wears panties under hers so that she can get more than one days wear out of it The reason for only 4 stars is that I would not mind a little more shaping in the middle. The rest is perfect..
This item fits like a teddy and is comparbly true to size, it is a medium stretch and not a firm gridle. I would wear with a Spanx girdle to complete. The only thing I didn't like were the closures [hook & eye]; which are difficult when in a hurry to use restroom. Maybe a velcro closure would work as well with a little more padding!
Not for Petites
I have other spanx products that I am happy with. However, the fit of this bodysuit is not good for me. It is long in the torso, and there is only one set of fasteners in the crotch. So no adjustability. You would be much better off with Kathleen Kirkwood's cotton touch bodysuit - great fit, A234055.
Read the description before purchasing
I keep reading reviews from buyers who complain about the breast support. I do not read anything in the product description about wearing this in place of a bra. I own this and it's just right under tshirts or knit dresses. I just always wear a bra. Let's face it. If we need Spanx we need all the support we can get. The picture shows a thinner woman with young perky breasts. Personally, i love it as it is.
I was very disappointed with the support of this bodysuit. I love Spanx and this is the first time I have ever been disappointed with one. Definitely not medium support.
Sent back, it felt smooth, no hold at all; ask for smaller size, maybe that will help.
Exactly what I was looking for
I wanted this for light slimming compression for casual days when my look doesn't have to be perfect. For going to the market, wearing jeans or just a comfortable happy medium. This is perfect. This fit is snug but not restricting, and looks perfect in semi fitted wear or doable in fitted wear. I wouldn't wear a tight dress with it but that's not why I wanted it. I have shapewear for every type of dress and this is more like a pinch hitter for on the go kind of days. I wear large and this is true fitting for me. It is a little generous about the cleavage but I just pull it up when I first put it on and it stays in place. Also it's a nice addition to layering. I'm buying two more today and would definitely recommend for casual slimming. It won't reshape you but it definitely smooths and cinches the not so firm parts, lol.
This is a very nice bodysuit - the material is beautiful and will be perfect under knits as it's very silky. I love the tank style top. This suit actually doesn't hold you in or slim you though - very little compression. I've had Spanx in the past that I couldn't even get on - this one slipped right on very easily. Furthermore, the bra on this is not supportive enough for me; I had to keep adjusting my boobs all day - hiking them back up actually - not a good thing. One thing I like about bodysuits/body briefers is that my boobs stay up better than with wearing a bra, but not in this one. Plus it gave me major uniboob.
Love this bodysuit
Would highly recommend this - smooths out all imperfections and looks great under all clothing - not too tight or uncomfortable
Not bad but...
....the material could be stronger. The hold isn't as tight as it could be, but LOVE the fact the straps are like a tank top...not the traditional bra straps...makes a commfy fit. If the material were stronger and have a firmer hold it would it be excellent!!!!
The hide and sleek bodysuit smoothes me out in all the right places. It's comfortable to wear and makes my clothes look great.
