It obliterates my muffin top, which is no small feat, and is relatively comfortable. I had a baby 6 months ago and am close to my pre-preg weight but things have shifted and hang oddly. I ordered the Maidenform equivalent hoping to save money - it was horrible. I'm just waiting for Zappos to stock nude so I can buy another.

This product does everything it promises. Why only two stars? We are human beings and must be able to relieve ourselves without making a mess! Before wearing the Spanx under my dress I took a test drive. I did not wear panties. The hole in the crotch just doesn't work and my Spanx were wet on both sides of the crotch hole. I can't see how I can wear it to an event that will last at least 8 hours. This is definitely a design flaw and if one Googles this issue one can find many blogs of disappointed users.

To be honest, I m not all that pleased with this product. When I decided to switch from my department store brand, sucker-inner (not the official terminology), I thought I'd be taking a step up in quality. That was not the case. This camisole ripped as I was putting it on. I usually tuck my camisole into the tops of my tights, but this was awkward. While it didn't roll up, the gripping-type material at the bottom put a runner in my favorite Kate Spade tights (womp womp, but seriously, what idiot pays $30 for tights anyway) and irritated my skin. I was not pleased with this product at all. I am likely going to switch back to my standard department store style store brand (I believe that's the brand). I may give Spanx another shot though, given that this is just an awkward shape. And I'm not sure if my other branded product, if it were of the open bust variety, would fit as awkwardly and uncomfortably. Summary: I was not impressed but I am not going to completely rule the brand out.

I have heard how great this product is and I finally decided to try it myself. It was comfortable and the straps fit fine. I fit between a medium and large and purchased the medium. It was a perfect fit. There were no lumps or bulges under my turtlenecks and other shirts.

I like this camisole for the belly support. It really reduces the jiggle. It doesn't do as much for my back-fat as I had hoped, but it's still a very important piece under my form-fitting shirts!

I wasn't sure what size to order. I wear mostly L or XL shirts...sometime even M, so I guessed and chose a L in this. It fits well, I think a medium would pull down on the shoulders too much. Seems fine, but I expected it to be tighter around the stomach area. It's plenty tight through the rib cage - but I wish it were tighter in the stomach.

I was so excited when I received the product. This morning when I was trying it on, I noticed the bottom portion (the lining) ripped. So without even wearing it for less than a minute I will return it tomorrow.

Love this cami. Really does help to smooth everything out. Just remember it is an open bust cami. I was able to put it on over my head and didn't have to step into it. I've also read that other found the straps to be too short, I find them to be perfect. I'm 5'4 though (and I think in general I have a smaller torso, but longer legs). Overall, great, want to buy a second black cami and nude as well!

I learned about Spanx on Inc.com and watched your story and all I want to tell you Sara Blakely is good for you. I know you have been in business and if I ever go to start one you are the first person I am going to call. Congrats, Walt

This cami does flatten your tummy, but it has to be tucked in so it doesn't roll up, and the shoulder straps awkward positioning dig into your armpit area.

I wear 16/18 clothes, and I originally ordered an XL because of the sizing chart. It wasn't as snug as I like, and I didn't feel like it held me in. So, I ordered a Large - even though it was for a size 10-12. The bottom doesn't roll up at all, and I have hips and booty. It's tight, but not uncomfortably tight.

Works well for smoothing out stomach and back, but tends to ride up a bit.

Love this! It helps with the "spillage" that happens with age. Leaves you with less lumps and bumps and slicks your back side out. Very comfortable and stays where it's put also. I would definitely have one in every color!

I have not been able to lose the pregnancy belly and bought this with the hopes that it would help hold everything in a little. It is perfect and doesn't feel like your squeezed too tight. It also doesn't ride up.

Well, it's not the world's comfiest thing to put on, but it accomplishes it's purpose--smoothing things out, especially along the rib-cage.. I wear it under slinkier things, like matte jersey, and it's a godsend. Wouldn't wear it to work all day, though. Too confining.

This is the best support I have worn in a while. I had a baby a year ago and I'm still battling the belly bulge so when I came across this slimming cami I took a chance. the fit is very comfortable and feels like I have nothing on under my tops.

Difficult to get on and the straps seem too long. Also the lower edge rises up when bending over. This is just based on trying them on, not actually wearing them for a day. The Miraclesuit version with the rubber edge seems to stay in place better. Both do keep your "muffin" under control.

The positive is that this does a terrific job and makes me look great. The negative is that it rides up almost instantly when I sit down so I need to tuck it into pantyhose or tights to prevent that. I don't know if that's because it doesn't fit me right, or what - but any other size would either be too big to hold me in, or too small to have put on. I would be tempted to order it again in another color, just because I like the way it makes me look so much - but I could not wear this item if I didn't have any way to tuck it in to keep it from rolling right up.

I have a hard time wearing this for more than a few hours without somehow affixing the straps to my bra in the front, or it's horridly uncomfortable. It cuts so far into my underarm that it shows on even the most conservative of sleeveless shirts, no matter how I tug it around. That said, it does smooth alright, and as long as I tuck it in, doesn't bunch up.

I don't think this is all it's cracked up to be. It is very uncomfortable on the shoulders, after wearing it for two hours I had raw shoulders. I can see how it would help someone with serious stomach fat or serious rolls on their back, but for the average moderately overweight female, don't waste your money.

I thought I was really going to like this camisole because it fit well and smoothed out my tummy, but the design does not work with a sleeveless top or dress. You could see the straps since it goes outside your breasts.
