I have worn this Bali body shaper for at least 5 years now. I love the comfort and the smooth shaping it gives me. This is not a heavy-duty shaper, but a gentle one. I wouldn't say it takes inches off, but it does give a smooth shape if you are looking for something lightweight. I suggest hand washing--I soak in a mild lingerie soap for 3-4 hours then rinse and press partially dry with a towel. I hang to dry. Have found they last longer by doing this type of laundering.
I really love the print, but the sizing is way off. Medium sizes almost always fit me, but this medium was uncomfortably tight - and, since these count as intimate apparel, I couldn't exchange them for a larger size. Bottom line: if you like the print, order up a size or two.
