Rated 4 out of 5 by angeltod It works...Great support with ups and downs
I frequently wear a backbrace to support my back and found out I can often trade a support garmet (which fixes OTHER things) and prevents roll up as much instead. I tried this and the Weightless Singlet. The Singlet I prefer over this but this also works if you are looking for a different type of fit. Support is overall medium compared to like items. Invisible under clothings. Cons - top straps are wider and are spaced back near armpits. Tend to chafe right at arm seam and I actually got bruise lines on shoulders from my bust weight pushing down on edges. (I'm not overweight, but am curvy with a small frame). This is one reason I prefer the singlet as it supports the edges of the top-heavy weight without being domineering. Now if they'd combine the two designs I'll be in heaven.
Is this product to avoid? No, not really. It works for what it is designed for and is top quality and fit. Just needs more options, slightly different fit for smaller frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chergui53 Love It
This is the 4th style of Flexees I have tried, and it is by far the best in control and style. This body shaper is great. It really holds you in very well. I love that it comes up your back so it camouflages the back-fat problem. I also like being able to wear my own bra. The big plus for me is the ease in which you can go to the bathroom. This body shaper has hooks and eyes in the crotch. You can wear your own panties, which is a plus for me as I wear panty liners. I haven't worn this yet in the summer, so I can't comment on how hot it might feel. All I can say is that so far, I have not been hot or sweaty in it. It launders quite well in a garment bag on gentle cycle in the washing machine. There hasn't been any ravelling or tears. I just air dry mine. Actually, I have 4 of them: 2 nude and 2 black. I would highly recommend especially if you want to look great in a special outfit, but then, I even wear mine with blue jeans :=)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nelly83 Exelent quality
I must start of my saying, i have not went a day in the past 10+ years without wearing shapeawear out of the house. I have tries pretty much everything to find stuff that is breathable during summer and wont pool sweat, firm and smooth at the same time, comfortable, wont unravel after long term use... well , everything you could possibly think of.
I bought two of these about 3 years ago to alternate, like i said, I wear them everyday under everything. I was a bit larger then than I am now and the straps on these i loved because i never had to worry about them rolling down and being embarrassed about reaching under my shirt and pulling it back up like I always had to do with my Spanks. The straps are on the narrow side and did dig in a little. this might have been alleviated if i would have went up a size in the shapewear because now, 3 years later after wearing the other maidenform WYOB shapewar with larger straps in a larger size because of my weight, These fit PERFECT and otherwise just as comfortable as I remember, 20lb lighter. Yes they are firm, expect it to be tight getting on.
After 200's of washes ea, they are barely starting to show a tiny bit of fray in a few areas but still have a lot of wear in them. I would recommend this to anyone, any day!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PhoebeS Not sure who this is meant for.
I first purchased this in a 2X in black, which should have been fine. I couldn't even get it up to my waist. So then, because the 2X was soooo small, and I needed it soon and couldn't keep ordering and returning, I ordered it in 3X and 4X. Still couldn't get either of them on, trying from the bottom up and top down. The fabric has very little stretch. It says it is firm control, but it should still have a little stretch to it. I couldn't see much difference between the 2X, 3X or 4X sizes. Not one of them could I get on. I'm an 18-20 dress. Returning all three of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meka90 Great Shaper
I purchased this shaper in high school in 2007, I just replaced it and I love my shaper it instantly slims and the best thing is you don't have to worry about it sliding/rolling down. The straps hold the shaper and it snaps together at the panty area. I couldn't be more pleased with this product and will continue using this shaper. Also I am not a small girl so I actually use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by suty2012 Flexees Torsette Body Briefer Deserves Rave Reviews!
This shapewear is exactly what I have been looking for! It smoothes out (100%) those "bumps" and "bulges" that can form between even the high waist panty girdle and one's bra. It is extremely comfortable and simply a pleasure to wear!! It is amazing how beautifully smooth I look and feel under close fitting apparel. I'm 5'6", and wear a medium (dress size 10, sometimes 8). In my case I purchased the XL, and it works perfectly for me. At first I thought it was too tight in the shoulders, but there are two rows of 4 hooks in the crotch area. It took a "jiffy" to move them back one row which made more room. With just that small change now it fits perfecty in the shoulders. (My shoulders are wide). I highly, highly recommend this torsette body briefer!! Thank you, JCP!

Rated 5 out of 5 by juriv Gives you a nice shape!
This is the 3d time I have purchased this item. I wear this under almost everything I wear. It gives you a really nice shape with out rolling down since it has straps and really flattens your stomach under clothes. Plus, it doesn't flatten your chest since it has an opening for your bra. I really love this shape wear. Only con is the bottom is a regular panty, and shows panty lines. If it had a thong bottom it would be perfect!
