If you have a cup size larger than a "DD" this is NOT for you. Band size is irrelevant. It smashes you down into a uniboob with significant "side boobage" as well. I tried pulling it down under my bra to avoid this effect, but the arms just cut into me.
What did work was that in the tummy/back area if fit like it should, the arms fit well and didn't cut, and it did not roll or slide up whether on skin, cotton/satin panties or over long-leg panty. It also gave the type of support and comfort I have come to rely on with Body Wrap products.
If Body Wrap makes a similar product, but with the cut lower to allow wearing of your own bra, I will happily purchase that product. Why do they have to make plus-sized shapewear so hard to fit/find/work?
BodyWrap Response: You mentioned that you are a 1X. This size is for a Full Figure, so it should have fit you better than the regular size. You might try going up one more size to a 2X.
