A big difference!
from North Delta, BC
I bought this for my mom and she loves it! She did not complain about the tightness or any discomfort. Additionally, it makes a pretty big difference as it smooths everything out :)The only complaint she had was when you go to the bathroom, it can be a little annoying to take it off.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fits just fine.
So far I have not had any problems with this bodysuit. It smooths everything out and the straps do not chafe me. My clothing looks so much better with it on.
In spite of reading poor reviews about this item I purchased it because I needed something, for an event, that doesn't roll down from under the bra and doesn't flatten the breast. It is true, the straps are too thin and the adjustable buckle digs right into your underarm, which is incredibly uncomfortable and painful. You cannot wear this even for an hour without getting bruised under the arms. I have to put some padding under the straps that chafe my underarm in order not to get bruised. I intended to wear it daily but it is not possible. It isn't worth the extremely high price and I would not recommend this garment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This is the best of the Spanx line!!!
This one I ordered recently is the second one I have like this!!This is the best option to the ultra power panty which comes up to your bra but somehow slides down and leaves a noticeable ridge. With this one there is no ridge or bumps showing through at all at all---just one sleek smooth line from top to bottom!!!! I wear this all the time going out in a dress/suit because it is comfortable for me.That ultra power panty you have to dance quite a bit to get into it because it has so much compression, but this one is not like that.The compression is more acceptable and breathable(ha)shall I say. It has a medium compression level and the material has a little shiny silky touch to it. Also the material is "tougher"-it is not wovenlike-it does not stretch so much as the power panty-so it still gives you similar compression.This is so easy to get on!!! You just step into and keep pulling it up and just a "little dance" and put the straps on and there you go!I find that if I put this on first BEFORE my bra, then the straps do not dig into me so much. The straps kind of have a curve to them and need to sit closer or lay flatter against the skin.From the very first time I bought a Spanx several years ago, I have been buying a size down and it works for me.Therefore I do not understand it when they say to go up a size for a good fit-I mean if you want your body flaws to be compressed so they do not show don't you want to have a garment that is going to do that rather than slide over your body as JUST an undergarment.For this one, I bought a size down and it fits me better than the first one I bought-I have a much better compression around my tummy-the straps don't dig into me as much either-that is a curse we have to deal with if we want to wear this suit.And the compression was much better- the smooth line with this suit is fantastic-we all should have 2 in our cupboard.The opening is wider for our necessary needs as well.I like this one much better now than the one without the legs-it gives a much smoother line and the material is more substantial.I really really encourage us women to get this particular Spanx-it is an investment piece.
Too expensive, not enough control
I ordered this because this brand's high waist control panties always roll down on me. I wanted something that was going to stay up for sure, but I need my own bra. The control level on this garment is light overall; it will smooth a few bumps, but won't hold anything in for long. While it does stay in place well, the straps are too thin and the adjustable buckle placed poorly. The buckle on the strap digs right into the tenderest part of your underarm, which is incredibly uncomfortable. After a half day of wear, the straps were causing welts! Unfortunately, I cannot return this, so I've modified the strap area that chafes my underarm in order to relieve the pain. I still don't think I'll be reaching for this too often. It isn't worth the discomfort for everyday wear, only short special occasions. I would not recommend this garment, and given all the disappointments I've had with other products from this brand, I don't think I'll be trying anything else.

My Husband Can't Keep His Hands Off Me
from Kingston Ont.
I was skeptical when I ordered my body suit shape wear.My thoughts were [$] for a piece of material was excessive.I was willing to try anything to smooth out the bulges and bumps. Well when I did receive it that was exactly what this piece of wonderfull material did. Smooth out the bulges amd bumps. I felt like a new woman. Clothes actually looked good on me and well,the best part is my husband can't keep his hands off me.

Love, love, love it!
I bought this body suit 2 months after giving birth to smooth out my post-baby body for my brothers wedding. I didn't experience a size changing miracle but it lifted and squeezed where need and gave me just that little extra bit so that I looked and felt great in my dress.
