Care and Cleaning: Hand wash & Line dry or lay flat to dry
Item Number (DPCI): 022-02-3015
This high waist brief shaper is reinforced to support the back and waist with extra firm control and has silicone grips to prevent the garment from rolling down. Wear this TUMMY SHAPER for extra back support while exercising, recovering post-partum, or to alleviate back pain. Hook & eye gusset for convenience. Made in Columbia.
First, I must say it is true to size. However, it does not provide abdominal compression at all. All of the compression is on the upper thigh area. It compresses that area so much that it looks weird with pants. The back part is expandable mesh which helps less to compress.
It’s short, so the rolls under your bra will come creeping out. And the zipper serves no function other than bulge on the top part.
Do not recommend.
Very good quality. Extra Firm Control. Hand Wash. Size runs a little small. A little cumbersome to put it on the first few times with the hooks and then the zipper. I was also surprised that the garment was not hot considering the weight of the fabric and the firm control.
Item arrived as shown and seems to be good quality. While the intention of the product is to hold your tummy area in, when you zip it up and sit down, a new skin roll forms above the waist line. Would be a good product if you didn’t sit down in it...
I tried about 10 different shapers, looking for something for daily wear to return to work post-baby. I found this and any other full torso with panty shaper to be a non-starter for a short waisted woman like myself. It just hit in all the wrong places. As I am not looking for butt support, I've opted for a bodice-only shaper. Quality and value seemed good but this is more of a special occasion product and I needed everyday wear.
This shaper did nothing for me except smooth out my tummy rolls. I hoped it would hold in my tummy fat but it didn't. I bought my size according to the size chart is a col. I think I should have got a size down.
The shapewear was great, fit well ( I purchased one size up). But with one wash it was in pieces. I wouldn't have paid this much for just one use. Save your money.

Thanks for your comment. Please contact your retailer ASAP for an exchange. We guarantee our quality. We need to assess what happen to that garment. Annette's extra firm shapewear is made with strong yet light fabric that help you dramatically shape your waist, tummy and hips ( you will see that you trimmed 1-2 inches before and after wearing it). This is the reason most people need to size up so comfort is not compromised. Basically if you are a pant size 0-2, wear XS, Size 2-4=S, Size 4-6=M, Size 6-8=L, Size 8-10=XL, Size 10-12=2XL, Size 12-14=3XL and size 14-16=4XL.
