This dress does create a gorgeous shape when you first put it on, especially around the waist, and it's great that you can wear your own bra with it. Unfortunately I discovered after a couple of wears that the bottom of the dress constantly rides up and ends up bunched up around your waist (undoing that nice 'nipped in' shape and creating a rather unsightly one in its place). I have tried several tricks to keep it in place, none of which have worked, so wearing this for any length of time is out of the question. In addition it also has built in briefs with a snap closure at the crotch (like a bodysuit might), and you can't really wear your own briefs underneath, yet the construction around this area is quite poor and uncomfortable. I really wanted to love this, a great idea but doesn't seem to do the job!
Purchased this in-store, and it's incredible at smoothing and shaping your figure. Unfortunately, the bottom part of the dress constantly rides up, creating a ridge around the hips, so it's fine for a sit down dinner/occasions where you can go to the bathroom and sort it out, but definitely less comfortable for long events.
...and especially that I can use my favourite bra! I usually wear S or M and I had to buy this one in M, as it is a bit tight (and has to be to do what it promises). Gives a great shape, holds in the tummy and gives me a flattering look in a dress.
In all the years I have used this site this is the first time I have returned anything. I was looking for support around the tum and bum as well as no VPL so I could wear form fitting dresses . This item is labelled as firm control, I disagree, it is light control. If you have a good figure and you just want no vpl then this may work for you sadly not for me. I wear spanx normally which are a bind to get into but once in place do a good job. This was easy to get into but I felt like it really did nothing once on. There is a 'knicker' inside which also meant I couldn't wear support pants as well. Not a brilliant finish either there is no hem on the bottom just a rough edge. Sorry overpriced too. If in the future you stock something along these lines but perhaps with control panels in the middle I would buy it.
