Rago Response: A smaller size would accommodate better for you, but this item can be moved up and down on your hips and waist for the position to accommodate the best fit and accomplish the shaping function.

The boning is disapointing in the way most boning is in these sort of products-- it isn't strong enough. I have never tried steel boning, I think that is what I need. With the plastic boning I have always had issues where it just bends rather than supports and holds and shapes. Where is the bone part! This does help when added to my shapeware ensamble however. I've discovered in order to actually look good in a close fitting dress, I need multiple layers: First I put on my spanx hide and sleek high rise body smoother. Then the waist cincher. Then over this goes slimpressions to help with the upper torso and arms and back. At this point, I can finally put on my clothes.
This product stays in place reasonably well-- better than the svelt belt and it is mostly comfortable. For more active days-- like when I'm crawling around the floor and then moving around and dancing then who knows what (I work with kids), it can get uncomfortable from shifting.
