Teri Response: We are very sorry to hear about the issue with the sizing chart. The size chart takes your given dress size and converts it into a panty size. We are sorry these did not work out for you.

We believe the photo of the product gives an accurate idea of the fit of the garment, as you can see it hits about 2 inches below the models naval. If you are looking for a shaper brief that hits at or above your belly button you may want to try our Teri Luxurious Lifter Brief Shaper Panty 752.

If you are ordering the right size you should get some control. The embroidery and the lining gives some control. It's not meant for someone who wants firm control.
