  • Well, if you're overweight like me it smooths out the extra bulges and bumps that I hate. I still may look the same size, but I feel better about myself because I'm " corseted" in to a point.

  • Some of it is great for smoothing lumps under certain types of fabric, but some of it holds in one area while squeezing fat from another area making it look weird.

  • I like to wear it because I am trying to lose weight. I makes me less jiggly under certain fabrics.

  • it smoothes bumps and makes things less jiggly. Excellent stuff for after giving birth, because it kind of trains you to hold your tummy in, which increases tone.

    Don't bother with a really cheap one though.
