I love this garment! It makes my waist look small and my bottom shapely, plus it holds up my stockings really well. And it looks sexy doing it. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Fits true to size. I am very happy with the quality. The girdle does not give and gives plenty of support and shape to my body lesly from Las vegas

The Rago 21 is a fantastic item. It gives a lot of support and is very effektive for oneĀ“s posture. It can be worn with or without garters and stockings. In both cases the fit is really good. Can only recommend it. Benno from Munich/Germany

Does what it says on the tin. Have one, bought a second because I liked the first so well I wanted to wear it every day, even for biking. Very very very comfortable. In addition to cinching your waist, it's a gentle reminder to sit up straighter and actually use your core muscles to support your torso. So while it might seem like a garment that you can't use for athletic stuff, it's a really nice thing for getting your form to be a smidge better. Torrilin from Madison, WI

I can only recommend this item. Comfortable to wear either with or without stockings. I prefer it compared to the other. Klaus from Munich/Germany

Love the fit! I see a noticeable difference in how much smaller my waist looks when I wear this garment. The garters hold on the stockings really well, however, the bands that hold the garters are getting stretched out looking rather quickly, and the metal fasteners that are supposed to hold the bands in place to adjust to different lengths also don't work very well. If it weren't for those two issues I would give this garment 5 stars. Peeper

This definitely gave me a more streamlined shape and pulled my waist in. I returned it because it wasn't exactly comfortable to wear with a long-line bra under my wedding dress. It probably wasn't meant for that but seeing as my cup size is a GG/J, I didn't really have much of a choice but to go with two separate pieces. I also returned it because I don't have anything else that necessitates such supportive shaping and can be worn with a bra with straps. I may reorder in the future need be! Elizabeth from Iowa

At first it didn't look like it would fit, but it did and very comfortable. It took a couple of inches off to allow my new dress to flow very nicely. You definitely need to go more by your hip size when choosing a size. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to get rid of couple of inches for night. Jodie from Honolulu, HI

I ordered both the Rago 21 (in white) and the 821 (in beige). Both are lovely, but the 821 is definitely more invisible under clothes. Although I like the look of garters, I wouldn't use them on a regular basis. That said, the 21 would be gorgeous under a wedding dress. My recommendation is to order based on your measurements and the size chart, ignoring the column with dress sizes. Going down a size is only good in theory - in reality, you have to account for the fact your hip bones can't be cinched in and there will be spillage on top and bottom. Ellie from VA

This is great and did take 2-3 in off my waist and hip measurements. I purchased it for my wedding coming in Oct and had the dress made according to my measurements wearing the cincher. I do wish it was just a bit tighter though. I took another customers advice and ordered two sizes smaller than the size chart indicated and it is still just a little looser than I was hoping for. Also my rear is high so I had a bunch of excess material bunched up on top of it so I just turned it around and it fit in the back perfectly then and came down just a bit lower in the front as well which I like.

I'm about 140-145 lbs and this was the right size for me. Gives the perfect hourglass shape, but it does bulge a little on the upper back. Emily from Las Vegas, NV

Great item, very comfortable for all-day wear and really improves the fit of vintage-style dresses. One caveat - if you are any taller than I am (5' 9") this likely won't work for you as the garter clips won't be long enough. Drusilla from Virginia, USA

I have been wearing the Rago 21 cincher for years. It is the only waist cincher I have found that takes into account that if you want to be cinched in the middle, you most likely hourglass out at the top and bottom. Most cinchers are shaped like a glorified tube, which causes spillage at the top & bottom. These give you the glamorous hourglass figure of vintage movie stars. The garters also hold up your stocking securely! Tiffany from Roseville, CA, USA

I do not like how this particular garment fits on the body : it is very visible, as to the shape, it does not create naturally beautiful shape. I bought two sizes - one XS , one S not being sure what will fit best on my size frame, but neither are good : S is visibly too large, and XS gives a very definite appearance of a waist BUT at cost of creating LOVE HANDLES, the VERY thing one wants to avoid in the first place. My recommendation is a no.

Rago Response:You might try Rago waist nipper 821 as it is smoother and has a no show effect. Customer from NY

I originally used measurements and ordered a 5x. 5x was a little too large, but the 4x fits beautifully, is comfortable and sexy! Brenda from Oregon

I weigh about 140 pounds and wear a size 12. I thought a large would be plenty big for me. Well, the waist cincher was half of what I would need to wear for comfort. I have re-ordered a size 3X because I want to have comfort. I am 100 years old and I wear it basically to keep my stockings up. I hope the 3x will do the trick It is very hard to find this type of item today. Rose from Union, New Jersey

I love, love, love this product!! I bought it to go under my wedding dress which is very slim fitting. This waist clincher makes you have that perfect hour glass figure and, even though it does suck you in a lot, it is really comfortable to wear! Marti from Illinois

Beautiful waist cincher. I probably should have ordered one size smaller, but am pleased and plan to wear it often. Thanks! N from California

After reading a lot of the other reviews of this product I decided to go with a size down, so I bought the x-small. I'm very happy with it. It takes about two inches off my waist and is very comfortable, even after wearing it for 10 hours. I was afraid that I might have some trouble with pinching at the hipline, since my hip measurement is much larger than the one listed for the x-small, but it covers easily without any lumps or bumps. Very happy with my purchase! Eve-Lynn from Kentucky

This waist cincher is really a fine piece of shapewear. Comfortable to wear either with or without stockings. It gives you a lot of energy and helps to improve your posture. Klaus from Germany

the cincher fit very well, I purchased a size smaller as recommended and the dress looked much better with it on. The only change I would like to see is two additional garter straps with ribbon covers. babs from wi

This is ok if you're thin and need a little bit of a shape to figure your curves out. It's not to hold in the rolls or fatten them out that much. The cincher has extra stitching on the waist area which can make too much of an indention and a bit of a roll above the waist.

Rago Response:This garment should be pulled up under the breast plate, as it is a 12 and 1/2 inch waist cincher and is meant for high waist wearing. The circle band design should help contour the body and hold it in place. A softer waist cincher by Rago is the 821 or 721. Thank you for your comments. Dominique from New York
