Rated 3 out of 5 by LED10 Alright.. I have mixed feelings
I said I recommend this product, but It's both a yes and no. 1) It does have a good amount of control that the (I'm assuming) redesigned products no longer have. 2) It's comfortable throughout the body. With that being said, the straps are very skinny.. They do NOT lay flat, because they're constantly twisting.. and not just once.. You end up with a miniature phone cord looking deal. Also, they cut into my shoulders, even if I adjust so they're the loosest possible. I end up with indents halfway through the day. I am SHORT (5' 2.5"), so I don't have a long torso that might have the straps tight. It's the design. I wish the straps were at least 2x wider. I do wear this every day, as I need something to help smooth, but I no longer look forward to putting it on and feeling "locked in" (like I have with others).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Luna12 Great shaping and light weight!
I was really hoping this would work under my wedding dress as it provided great shaping from the tummy down. However, the straps were too wide set to use under my dress and I'm returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisa863 This bodysuit has a slimming effect, which is exactly what I was looking for.
I ordered a size smaller than I typically wear as a consequence of reading the reviews. I'm glad I did. It does exactly what I was looking for it to do. It holds the tummy and slims the thighs. I absolutely love the way it made me look under a clinging dress. I did have to practically get undress in order to use the restroom, even though the crouch has a peep hole. It is slightly tight under the arms, but not uncomfortable. I will have to see what happens when I wash it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jaxium Great concept
I LOVE the idea of this piece (reduces the roll down issue at the waist that many pieces have) HOWEVER, this design does not provide the tummy control that it should. Other reviewers have made similar comments. I bought it in large originally (one size down than usual) and exchanged it for medium which is REALLY tight. I hope they re-design this concept to keep in mind the purpose of the garment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DandyDeb Love this product!
I love this Spanx! I have two others that don't have as much control and after having abdominal surgery I needed a compression garment. The first one I ordered was good for right after surgery and was easier to get on but as time went on it didn't provide as much support as I needed. The Slimmer & Shine Open Bust Mid-Thigh Body is awesome... Provides the right amount of support and slimming...,. Love, love, love this Spanx!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nicsid Not what it used to be
Spanx super duper level of slimming used to be just that. This has too much give and not the firm hold that it used to have. Sending it back.
