I'm continuing my search for a strapless shaping slip. On the positive side this slip did a good job of smoothing my belly and hips without flattening my butt. Also, the claim that the hem would stay in place was pretty accurate. Which is why I can't understand why they couldn't apply that same technology to the bra. It had a single thin line of silicon along the very top edge of the bra in front and absolutely nothing along the back. No sooner would I get the bra adjusted and it would need pulling up and re-adjusting.
HerRoom Response: We notice that you state you re petite in height. Unfortunately, bodysuits on the market simply do not accommodate a short stature.
TC Fine Shapewear Response:It is always difficult to comment on how a particular bra fits, as everyone’s needs vary. That said, our guess would be one of three scenarios. First, depending on either the hip size (perhaps proportionately too wide, thus stretching the garment too much horizontally, thus shortening the stride = the bra being pulled down, or, while the wearer is 5’3, she may have a long stride, again pulling the bra down. Or thirdly, the bra simply does not fit, even though the size may be generally correct. In any one piece garment, there are four proportions that must “work together.” The bra (most critical as it determines whether the remainder works), the stride, the waist, and the hips. If any of the four is not proportionate to the other three, then the garment doesn’t work.
