Rated 1 out of 5 by Ginster Too painful to wear
I fell for the hype around this underwear, and bought the bodysuit. On a positive note, it does gently smooth out lumps and bumps and the fabric is nice although I could have gone down a size despite the recommendations as it is very very stretchy (hence not much control). However, it does not provide any form of larger bust support, so I still need to wear a bra. I would however, have still kept it but for the incredibly scratchy hooks and eyes underneath! They are just awful and I have spent the day 'adjusting', which is utterly embarrassing. This has put me off this brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Starsky147 Not supportive enough
I ordered this while it was the TSV and got both the nude and white. I am looking for control underwear as the Mother of the Bride. I am a tall lady and after the presentation said that if you were between sizes ( I am 18/20) you ought to go up, so I got an XL. However, this was too large and loose and I really should have got a large. Whilst the fabric is soft, I saw no control or support and it felt like I was just wearing a swimsuit. For me I would have preferred a shorts legging, longer in the leg so no panty line. This is a substantial monetary outlay for me and I was hoping for great things, but this did nothing for me, so I did not even bother getting the white out of the packaging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chrisycat not enough support
Disappointed in the support.
I'm big busted and take a gg 38 fit, it gave some support but not enough to go braless.
It gave a smother silhouette and was comfortable to wear. Really good quality

IVe watched quite a few demos on this brand and thought it was a good time to try it whilst this was a TSV. The presenters explained what to expect and the level of support.Yes,the fabric is good quality and it felt soft and comfy next to the skin. Nothing felt tight or dug in, which is a plus. If anything, it felt a bit loose and unfortunately it didn't give me the support that I was looking for. I'm a high street 12 and bought the medium. Sadly I will be returning it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EJEC Not a lot of control
I too ordered TSV in large, size 16, and, whilst easy to get on and reasonably comfortable, the fastening is a right phaff! As for the medium control, I could feel and see little difference when wearing. I will be returning and just accept this type of shapewear is not for me. Gave 2 stars for the quality of manufacture.

I have looked at this type of shape wear to a long time and decided it was time to take the plunge. I did not find it too difficult to put on but it seems to me that you need to be very 'busty' for this to work otherwise it flattens the bust and makes you look flat chested. I should have known as I tried a bra once in a similar range and that had the same problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chelle58 Realistic expectation
I remember in the 1980s when body suits were around; I've missed them! I've been searching for something with light compression, something that just holds things nicely in place. This body suit meets my expectations. I have a fuller bust and would never dream of wearing only the body suit, but am pleased that the V-neck on the suit is lower and gently shapes around the outline of my bra. I feel confident wearing the suit as any lumps and bumps have gently been removed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Fishfinger Not for me
I should have learned from past experience and not ordered this item. I have returned a previous bodysuit in this brand as the leg openings were too tight creating a ridge which was visible under clothes. This one did too. I don't understand this this as I am an evenly proportioned size 14/16 and ordered size L. I think they should have an 'infinity' leg I.e no band or turning on the leg that I have seen on high street brands. This would prevent the problem. Also, whatever anyone says I would not (unless just wearing a sweatshirt at home) go without a bra while wearing this bodysuit. It looks no better than a tight vest top when bra-less
