I wanted to get a waist trainer that I could possibly wear under a dress. But this one isn’t the best one for under a dress look. I got my usual size based off the chart size. I can fit into it if I really squeeze myself in it. I decided to keep it for working out instead. It does however smell like latex at first which I don’t like . But since I’ll be using it for working out and not near people, I figured it’s fine. If you’re looking for something similar to a faja or wear underneath a dress, I wouldn’t suggest this. However, if you’re looking for just a shaper to wear around the house or while you work out, this will do the trick.
My wife who trains fitness and competes purchased this item and is super happy with the quality she love the materials used. Made of the highest grades and durable. Highly recommended for workout. My wife is only 5’2 and has a short torso so I only short torso women can wear it. Keep that in mind. Good luck !
