I bought the High-Waist Step-In and it is amazing. I measured my waist before and after and it took 2 inches off! But I think the best part about it is how it smooths you out and makes your clothes fit perfectly. No more muffin top! There are only two minor problems that I'm having with it: 1) Where is stops on the thigh is very tight and creates a bludge. It's fine with loose pants or skirts/dresses, but with tighter pants you can definitely see it. I think I'm just going to cut it at the seam and re-sew it so it's not so tight. 2) The top back is always sliding down. It stays up fine in the front, but it's always sliding down in the back and, depending on my shirt, creates a buldge between it and my bra. Haven't figured out how to solve that yet. I thought about pinning it to my bra, but that would just be a nightmare when I have to go to the bathroom! I think both of these problems might be because I'm more of a pear shape - bigger in the hips/thighs and smaller in the torso. So it's tight on the bottom and loose on the top. But that still doesn't stop me from wearing it almost every day! It's amazing and very comfortable too!
Disapointed it rolled down would not stay up. Ended up buying a much cheaper one at the local store and it stayed up.
With a waist of about 40 I guessed the 3X would be appropriate. The garment is too large for any real support and the thighs literally flap they're so big. I'm guessing I should pick the 1X or 2X. It's been my experience that most garments of this type tend to slide down to my hips while wearing - even the boned band type supports.
Extremely comfortable even after several hours of wear. Stays in place well. Fabric soft and does not irritate while wearing. Very good buy Worth the money. I intend to pruchase another.
I ordered the size I normally wear in undergarments, but I found it to be just a tad too big. On a positive note, the construction is really good...it's made very well. I was hoping for more support, and pulled in more in the middle but I'd probably get it if I order a size down. Happy it has bathroom access!
<p>This is my third purchase of this shaper. While I like the crotch opening, the bands on the thighs are too thin and you see the lines in my pants. Previous versions had wide bands on thighs. Now, I've got to find another brand of shapewear! So disappointed at the poor qualtiy of this new version!</p>
<p>I purchased this shapewear garment at the store and I love it. I wanted shapewear that I can wear daily. Dr. Rey's fits the bill. I ordered 2 more so I can have some for changing while I do the wash. This shapewear gives your "bumps" that smooth look, and clothes just slide up. Once dressed you just have that finished look. Love the look and feel.</p>
<p>My wife got me to try this for my back problems and its great. I can wear this all day long and its very comfortable. I have been a girdle wearer ever since. All men should try this.</p>
<p>This pantygirdle gives me wonderful feminine shaping with all day comfort. I also enjoy the split crotch..</p>
