Did exactly what I wanted it to. Flattened my tummy, took in my sides and flattened my back so I could get into my favorite silk jacket. Ordered one size up (I'm a 16 and 2XL was comfortable). It did not ride up at all when I put silicone bottom flat against my body (it can catch on pants pulling up otherwise). Had some very slight chafing under the arms that I did not notice until after I took it off. No marks next day. Love that I can wear my best bras with this. Affect is somewhat like the miracle bathing suits - holds you gently in if you get a size up. Adrienne

This has been a real saver to my bad back as well as a fine smoother and slimmer. Connie from California

This is a terrific garment. I ordered a size up and it fits perfectly. I am long waisted and this is still long enough for me. It smooths beautifully and does not roll up. I would definitely order this again. CB from Ohio

Controls the lumps and bumps and I can wear it with my own bra. No ride up due to sticky lining in the hem. Fabulous. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This fit me well and gave me good back support. I will wear it when I need to avoid being stuck by the bones from some of the other waist cincher styles I wear. no name

For light control that enhances and smooths bulges, this was a fantastic choice. The only drawback I've experienced is that the base does stay down for awhile, but as you sit and move (or need to bend over/down, esp) the bottom will roll. Another garment like a garter belt over it, for hose, does solve this problem, but then you have to wear full length hose instead of more convenient knee-high's. Madeleine S. from Lawrence, KS

I love this shapewear! I don't generally pay that much for undergarments. But I thought I would take a chance and I am so glad I did! It fits wonderfully and doesn't ride up. True to size and fit. You get what you pay for and in this instance.. it's definitely true. Michelle from Wilmington NC

I think this is great! I've worn many different brands, and this one "holds me in" the best. It's very comfortable and not constricting underneath the arms at all, as some other brands are. Laura from Nampa, ID

I would give this 5 stars but it has some downsides, which prompt the 4 stars. First of all, great piece of shapewear. Unlike full body camis, this does not "push down" the breasts - which creates the perception of bigger rather than smaller as you lose definition (i.e. your torso looks like one big shapeless lump). This, in contrast, smooths the torso while letting you wear the bra of your choice...it slims and gives the perception of definition between breasts and rest of torso. Definitely a winner - something you can wear daily.

So why not 5 stars? Well, downside 1: in the beginning, the straps dug into my armpits - it's rather unpleasant and gets painful after extended wear. This has been solved as I have laundered the item many times so likely it's only something to worry about in the beginning. Downside 2: the silicone - which is great - starts to wear away and come off, creating little "spaghetti like" pieces handing from your shapewear. This is not a big deal but it doesn't look great - they were likely better off creating thicker pieces of silicone on the inside so that it didn't break away so easily. Finally, downside 3: it does tend to roll up if the silicone isn't against your body (in which case it stays put). Therefore, more often than not, you'll have to wear your underwear on top of the torsette....it's not a big deal, just a solution I found to prevent it from rolling.


TC Fine Shapewear Response: 1. Straps – my guess is that the size is too small. While you provided your size and height, without actually seeing you, it is difficult to determine if you are broad in the back a/o full in the midriff (which is my guess). If so, you may need a XL. The straps, designed with a cushioning, should be ultra-comfortable, but will dig in if the garment is too small.

2. Silicone problem – This may be a manufacturing defect. On occasion, the supplier will receive fabric with an invisible coating of manufacturing “oil” which could prevent the silicone from permeating the fibers (fabric) as it is designed to do. If so, then the unraveling effect could occur.

3. Roll-up on body. The silicone is designed to adhere to underwear a/o to the skin. Again, my guess is that you need a larger size.

All TC products are 100% guaranteed, for any reason. My suggestion is to have you return the garment for an XL. JulesNL from Netherlands

This is a nice piece, not 5 stars but certainly a full 4. Pluses include the ability to wear your bra (and it's benefits) and getting the benefits of shaping without having your chest "smushed" against your body. The product is well made. Runs true to size in my opinion. Negatives (and reasons for 4 instead of 5 rating): although the hem has silicone to prevent roll-up/ride-up, it is not particularly effective. Also, the straps can end up digging a bit into the lower armpit after a longer period of wear. All in all, it provides good shaping. The fabric is nice and provides for a good foundation for under your clothes. Definitely a keeper. JFNL from Netherlands

I just love this item. I have been wearing the a similar TC camisole that had a built in bra shelf. I would still need to wear my bra underneath since my girls are a full DD. With this item I can wear a bra and show my girls! I had such a hard time finding this item in stores. Megan from Gainesville, FL
