Rated 3 out of 5 by Megi I have it, I'll stick with it, but I wouldn't have bought it if I tried it on in the store first.
This is really comfortable. But the torso is a little short. I put it on over my head and snapped the crotch (which was a little difficult but that's because I had to stretch it over my butt- no easy task). It fits nice and snug and really improves my posture. The back is a little low (which is good for the bridesmaid dress I bought it for) but that does cause a little bulge, but that's to be expected when you have back fat lol
The bra however, is a disappointment. It has no lift. At all. With the straps, it's minimal. I'm gonna have to buy some super lifting inserts. (It should be noted though that when sitting, I get some good cleavage from the waist section pushing up).
Worth the money? Probably not. Is the worth the trouble to send back and buy something else? Probably not either. I have it, I'll stick with it, but I wouldn't have bought it if I tried it on in the store first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RAJ35 Works great for me
I ordered the small and it works great for me. I'm 5'3" tall and range between 113-118 lbs. My bra cup size is a B. It fits pretty snug but compresses me well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by princessheart82 Does Not Provide Appropriate Compresssion
This product is very pretty, but unfortunately does not provide any compression. I chose the size based on the chart, and also after asking for help from Customer Service. Based on the assistance they offered, I chose the XL size. The garment feels like it is not long enough, and the cups do not actually lift up my breasts, just provide some coverage. The biggest problem is that there is no compression provided, the fabric just sort of sits lightly on my body. Extremely unflattering!

Rated 1 out of 5 by dpap need more sizes
I was really hoping this product would do the trick, but unfortunately the bra part of it was too big on me, but I needed the large size for the corset part. I wish you had separate cup sizes available for your Boostie-Yay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carol70 The woman consult on the phone helped me immensely in deciding what to purchase. Fit seems perfect.
The Spanx seems to fit perfectly. I've tried it on with the gown but will actually wear it in a couple of weeks. A previous Spanx I had (slip top, short to hips, several years old) did not stay up, and this structured style - with stays - I think will. I'm older so need the support. Great phone consult in concert with website images in helping me make a decision and very quick delivery of product.
Thank you. And Delta love.
PS - In the survey "trouble area," I suggest you add 1) midriff, and 2) bra line in the back. These are my 2 trouble areas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Oregonian Sizing Needs Improvement
I am large-busted (36G), but I wear a size 12 dress/pant. In order to get something close to my bra size (38DD), I had to order the largest Boostie-yay. Although the bra marginally works, the body of the shaper doesn't hold me in at all - it's barely snug. It would be much more effective to offer sizing for both the bra size and the body; e.g., you'd order a 36G bra size and a medium or large body (by dress/pant size).
I kept the product because it is to wear under my wedding dress and I needed something smooth. I trust Spanx for other products and love the fabric.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Boohoo Torso issue
Got this for a black tie event under a long gown when I tried it on in the store it was tight but fine...one hour into wearing it I had to keep going to the ladies as I needed to yank it up... it is too short in the torso. In addition the underwire and corset bones left me with marks that are still visible 24 hrs later. As I wore it I am out $118.00 !!!! Very unhappy !!! All the other comments are right on...wish I had read them prior to purchasing this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by charlie4 Did not fit
The back is cut too low, leaves a lot for overhang. The bra size was too large and if I sized down the rest would not fit. Very disappointed and I had to pay for shipping it back cost me over $13.00
