I'm a huge fan of Rago shapewear and choose it whenever I need shapewear that will actually work (IE, enhance my shape, suck me in, and not just smooth me out) I choose this brand. This girdle is LIFE CHANGING. It was a bit hard to put on by myself the first time I tried it on, but after that it was easy and so COMFORTABLE! Just buy it. I could have sized down, though.

I wear a lot of vintage clothing and dress people in vintage looks for performances. Women typically come to me wearing Spanx to control their little figure inconsistencies. The problem is that Spanx just smooth. They don't have any control. So you have lumps just in different places. As a costume historian, I am familiar with Rago because they've been making girdles since 1945. The 1294 girdle is a classic updated with lycra and bendable boning to make it more comfortable. It may look like your gandma's torture device, but it is THE BEST. It is comfortable (I can dance a tango in mine and I don't dance a calm tango). It breathes. And it smooths my middle-aged flub so my vintage clothes fit perfectly. Not bad back support either. When I got mine, I was really worried it was too small. But it just takes a minute to wiggle into. Praise Rago for the genius idea of putting hooks along the zipper so you don't need two friends to help you zip it up. It's definitely worth the struggle. And they run pretty true to size. Great buy. I have five of them. Kass from Harrisburg, PA USA

One of the last real vintage style Girdle's still being made. I wear it daily. If anything, it comes up a tad small but stretches enough for all day wear. Having 6 garters helps for the stockings. Royalco from CA

This fit wonderfully. It's just the right length, and even with the zipper and attached stocking clips, they didn't show through the fabric of my dress. It took a bit to wiggle into it, but it "stretched" out throughout the evening and was comfortable and breathable. Amy from Richmond, VA

Fits great and very smoothing. Can be uncomfortable to sit in for a long time. Stacy from NY

I was worried about the fit based on some of the reviews stating that the garment was too tight to put on, but I am glad I made the purchase! The garment was easy to wear and smoothed out every lump I have and looks natural in tight fitting dresses. I love my so much I'm ordering another one! Vicky from Los Angeles

This Rago girdle can be worn all day and still feel comfortable. It stays in place and holds up my stockings. Charlie from La Jolla, CA

This girdle provides outstanding support for my ample tummy. The side-zipper makes it easier to get in and out of. It is relatively comfortable for such a firm control girdle. It gives a smooth line in close fitting dresses. Kate from Greenville, SC

Before I began a new job I learned that the company requested female employees wear dresses or skirts and hose. I have serious bulges in wrong places and always been a pants suit gal. Now I had to buy some things - most important a girdle. I wanted one that had max control, plus some good stockings and garters I had never worn. Very happy I chose 1294. It is SO comfortable. Hubby never paid much attention to me getting dressed in the morning. When he saw what I had put out my first day of work he asked if I wanted help. He’s an engineer, so he can figure things out. He thought I should roll up my stockings rather than pulling them up. Love how I look in dresses. Thanks a bunch honey and you too Rago! Tobitha from Ohio

This fabulous girdle is a trip back to the golden age of girdles and stockings and is the equal or better than anything from those 'golden years'. Perfect 'fit to size', lovely on and comfy enough to wear all day. Helps create a very flat front as it shapes 'inwards' and not 'upwards.'. May not work under very form-flattering or slinky dresses/skirts as the six garters will create very noticeable 'garter bumps' under any unlined dress or skirt. Thank you Rago and HerRoom!

My first one and it holds me good. Like the metal garter clips and holds my stockings up. Also nice and comfy under my dress. Darrell from Sherman, Tx

I have worn Rago girdles for quite a few years.This one is very firm and the 3 garter clips on each leg help hold my nylons up quite well. Sherry from Bloomfield Hills,Mi.

This is a very firm girdle and really holds things where they belong.I wear this with high quality nylons and have had several men notice how my figure looks and how the nylons make zipping noise when I walk.The first time I wore it my boyfriend was quite intrigued with it. All things said it is a very comfortable girdle and I enjoy wearing it as well as the Rago 6210 pantygirdle. Nancy from Lansing, MI
