we ordered this for my mother, and it just came in tonight… she wears a ~36D in bras, but we ordered a 34D in this and it was perfect… really slimming, lots of structure, soft non-push-up cups, smooth silhouette… it also has little garter straps you can add on if you want (like you mentioned). It’s not incredibly low-backed, so i don’t know if you needed that or not, but my mom LOVED this for under her MOB dress… it really created a nice defined waistline on her! 🙂 also, the place takes returns, which is of course a necessity when buying shapewear without trying it on first!


(they also sell the nude color and the white color in other listings… i’m assuming you don’t need black! haha)

we’d tried a bunch of those little bodysuit-type ones, and none of them stayed up where they were supposed to (and she’s not even long-waisted!)… they all pulled/retracted/slid down instead of holding up the girls and making a nice waist!

@Evie19: THE best shapewear is What Katie Did’s Glamour range and (if you don’t need something as smooth) Rago’s vintage shapewear. Kiss Me Deadly also do some kick ass shapewear, but I’ve never worn it so I can’t give a personal review.

Spanx (and most similar things) aren’t great in terms of appearance and honestly they’re nowhere near as effective as vintage-style shapewear.

Depending on what you want… try whatkatedid.com – specifically their Glamour Shapewear line (under the lingerie heading)

I just ordered the Glamour Underbust Zip Girdle (it’s long line) and the Glamour Strapless bra.

I am 5’1″ and curvy and wanted a heavy duty shaper but still sexy, you know?

Not to threadjack, but I’ve been looking for some BA shapewear myself and went to the WhatKatyDid site.  For the girls who have used the brand what do you suggest for under my dress?  It is low back, and I am mainly looking for something to maybe cinch the waist a bit more but also slim the hips…maybe the waspie with the girdle panty?  Any suggestions would be awesome!  Thanks!
