Rated 5 out of 5 by Dale72 Excellent fit and function
I am a tall male with a 34" waist, and would like help in improving my tummy and bottom. I inquired with Customer Service about a tight, open-bust bodysuit, which would be tight enough (like shape wear) that I don't need to wear underwear underneath. I have no trouble wearing a "female" undergarment, even though I am a male. I was recommended this Slimmer & Shine® High-Waisted Body Tunic in size Large. They said, " This style will provide you with our highest level of support and will also be able to be worn as underwear." This is 100% true!!
I ordered it, and it fits excellent. There are no problems with the top "rolling" - it fits high enough on my chest to stay nicely put all day.
The tight, stretchy fit is ideal for my male physique, and is 100% comfortable, without wearing any underwear. It effectively tones and smooths my tummy and bottom (front and back), just like I was looking for.
This product is highly recommended (ideal) for male customers who are looking for a tight, comfortable, and effectively shaping fit.
The main body of this product is seamless (no seams to stretch and split), and the hook-and-latch gusset is ideal for washroom stops, without having to remove the garment. Re-attaching it is more challenging being a male. The garment has a nice snug fit between my legs, which feels great.
The sizing chart provided is correct for male customers also, when using the Waist measurement.

I love, love, love this product!!! I truly wear it every day and have received compliments about how thin I look since I started wearing it. The trick to making sure that it doesn't roll down is to tuck it into your bra band - it works perfectly!

I'm currently losing weight and this is perfect for my trouble areas which are my hips and bottom. It also creates a smooth silhouette for my tummy and NO MUFFIN TOP! I'm not sure why so many people are giving this product such low reviews. I have a relatively flat stomach and small waist but I'm very hippy and I have a round bottom so the boy short is perfect for the areas I'm trying to control. I really like the bra loops and I didn't experience any roll down issues that some of the other ladies commented on. I'm 5'8" and a size 14/16 so the XL fits perfectly. I have a pretty long torso though and a small bust so I'm smaller on top. Based on personal experience and my body type, I don't think I would recommend this garment on a shorter/heavier person with a large bust because that might contribute to some of the roll down problems. The unfortunate thing about Spanx (with the exception of the leggings; those look great on everyone) is that not every garment suits every body type so you really have to try several options before you find a great fit. I hope this helps!

This did not work at all. In fact I will have to return this. I have a short torso, so it came up way to high. Plus I do not think it made much difference.
I am always frustrated that everything is geared towards the long torso. There are short people in this world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by judyk3015 My problem area is my stomach and muffin top
I called and talked to a consultant to be sure that she recommended the item I was about to purchase. She did, however, she indicated that although I wear a large in all my other clothing, I should purchase an XL. I did, and it is too big. I should have returned it for a replacement. It does not control my tummy or muffin top as well as other bodywear I have owned. It also comes all the way up under my bra. Definitely need to carry products for petites. I am 5' and 178 lbs. The straps to fasten around my bra are useless. I will probably purchase another in a L and if I don't like it better, I will return it.

Here's the good news - it does smooth out my lumpy areas on my back, and holds in my stomach enough that I look decent in a dress I would otherwise never have the courage to wear.
The bad news: it's clingy, and the fabric is a little heavy. Since it cuts off at the panty-line it does nothing for any saddlebag bulges like some of the other (and oddly less expensive) shapewear options on this site. The worse problem by far is that it rides up around the leg holes, and bunches on the sides of your lower hips. My feeling is that people who need Spanx do NOT need additional bulges anywhere that are actually created by the shapewear itself. I mean as soon as you sit down it's going to ride up, and you'll have to physically reach up your dress/skirt and pull it down to get comfortable again. And that's every single time you sit down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SnohoMama Horrible Body Tunic
The fit is great, however, all it did ALL DAY LONG was roll down. So incredibly annoying. If it had open bust straps, it would probably be my favorite Spanx. The boy short fit, hook and eye gusset and slimming features are terrific. But, it was worthless because it wouldn't stay up. It looked awful under my clothes. I absolutely DO NOT recommend this product. Really disappointing too that I cannot return it. Couldn't have known it would fit so terribly until I wore it, and once worn, it can't be returned. Big bummer. Sorry Spanx, love you, but this was the biggest waste of my hard earned money.
