Spanx "Hide & Sleek" Full Panty Bodysuit
I am very short (4'10") and I took great pains to ask the customer service people about the fit. They did not have these recommendations like they should have had. I used to wear body suits all of the time, but this was did not do the job as intended so I had to return it. very disappointed. I really wanted a new body suit to wear under my clothing. Adding insult to injury here, they say I have to pay to return it.
I had to return this.....
Nice product for someone else. I am 5'10" and it was not long enough in the body and the bust was way too tight. I had to return it.
Very nice !
I think I will really like this bodysuit. I have only tried it on when I got it but it feels very comfortable and yet smoothes the places you don't want bulging. I'm quite large busted and want to minimize the bust line so I put it over my bra and it minimizes the bust. I'm a 2x on top and a large on the bottom so I ordered 1x and it fits perfectly. It smoothes yet it doesn't take your breath away. As some others have recommended, I think Velcro would be nice at the crotch but I think I can maneuver the hooks. I do believe I'll enjoy this bodysuit.
I absolutely love this bodysuit. I wear a medium in Spanx, and the medium fits perfectly. It is comfortable and does not ride up! I will definately be purchasing multiples.
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.
