 Horrid "panty lines" but nice bust support.

Im a bit of a connoisseur for good shapewear--and I wear it eveyday. It makes ALL of your clothes look better and more expensive. Trust me.

My rules: it must be comfortable, hold up to a lot of wear and washing, and be NEVER EVER pinch or make lines, which defeats the purpose of a smoothing effect. I also loathe bras bc of the pinching effect (oh god backfat is the worst!!!)--so I try to find the tops with built in cups and I just add padding or pasties as needed.

Generally, I love this line from maidenform and have quite a few pieces. This line is high quality and clothes just glide over the fabric which smooths things out. It's also the right price.

But I was disappointed by this piece. The top on this was great (no weird cone-shape bust), but I couldn't wear these with pants bc of the panty lines. For a loose fitting dress, probably would be fine, but I returned them bc I like versatility in my shapewear.

I should note that I'm 5'11" and a size 16-18 and I got the XXL, which fit perfectly. But the panty lines were a deal breaker.

 Good quality, a light all-over squeeze

I was originally going to give this product 4 stars, but felt that it was also fair to give it 5. I have worn it and washed it (in a garment bag and hung up to dry) several times. It appears well made with good workmanship. The hook and eye closure is nice, the stitching is neat. The material held up well to being washed. I purchased my bra size and it was a perfect fit. This bodysuit is designed to fit snuggly and smoothly over you, but not to flatten or really squeeze. So if that is what you want, I would not purchase this product for that one reason. What I really wanted was a tighter squeeze, but after searching for very long I have concluded that those come in a completely different price bracket and wanted to give this a try instead. For the price that I paid, it was a great deal actually - you get a bra, a camisole and a panty, basically, all stitched into one garment for under $30. That's pretty good. As far as bras go, it is a pretty decent one - good sizing and very nearly no show. Like, someone would have to actively stare at my breasts in a tight shirt on a really cold day to spot anything. So I feel confident in wearing it. One thing I don't like is the panty lines. I do think that there is no such thing as a no-show panty, unless it is a thong, but I just wanted to point out that this will definitely cause them in case you thought otherwise.

 Great body shaper, but would be better with a few changes...

I purchased the Maidenform Flexees Body Shaper in hopes that it would be similar to the ones I already own. In a way, yes, in other ways, no. But I found that i could fix a few things that are not only silly but wrong with this "new" version of my old favorite.
First of all: The addition of a BLACK OUTLINE on the straps was really stupid. But I discovered that I could remove the BLACK OUTLINE by snipping the black elastic and pulling the whole elastic out!! Excellent!!! And it just takes a few minutes to do this.
However, I have not yet figured out how to get rid of the stupid raised V in the front of the body shaper without taking the whole damn thing apart and re-sewing it without the stupid raised V which shows under soft, form-fitting, lightweight, or tight clothing.
Wish I could help more...

It is Maidenform. Have a lot of bras from this co and they fit very well. Bought the 34c as thats tge bra size i wear, but not overflowing a c cup. My waist is 28 in 136 lbs. 5.3 in heightalrhough gained weight a lot. Wt mostly on my thighs. Broad and muscular arms. Still fit into a sz 6 US dress. So this undergarment has the right amt of hold without having back fat pouching out. Easiest to fet in and out placing yoyr legs in
and pulling up or down. Added a picture. Please dont mind all of my boyfriends junk around the room in his home! Just couldnt wait to place pic with review!

 A little about me and then let me tell you about this shapewear

Reviewed in the United States on July 21, 2016

Size: 38DColor: Latte Lift/BlackVerified Purchase

About me:

I’m 5’3, 160 pounds. I’m an upside down triangle (big breasted with more fat on the arms and back) and smaller waist and athletic legs. On my “fat” days, I’m a 38 D. I’m 40 years old but age doesn’t matter, right?!

What I needed: I struggle to find control for the girls and need my back to be smoothed out because I hate it when I get rolls when I wear any type of bra – even if I’m fitted properly…I get rolls above and below my bra line, UGH!!!

I also was not looking for a girdle-type affect. I wasn’t expecting to go down in sizes – just want smoothness and firm control. I find it hilarious that some of the comments here were expecting such.

It is so very difficult to find the “perfect” body shaper but honestly, without trying it on, it is a hit or miss. Here is what I found for myself

The cup size is perfect and true to size. It has some padding (not of the heavy variety) but being that my GIRLS are already on the WOW side, less padding is best for me. However, it does the extra padding gives them a nice soft shape and lift.

The fabric is soft to the touch. I stepped into the body shaper expecting to wrestle my way in it – I even prayed a bit before pulling it up but surprisingly, it went up nicely. Of course, lots of pinching and pulling here and there until I got it over my butt, stomach, and boobs but I didn’t curse my way into it or break a nail. And it didn’t take over 5 minutes to fully adjust everything. I looked in the mirror and saw that it did smooth everything out including my back. It didn’t give the double boob look either. The stomach area does have a double liner so there IS CONTROL. For those saying "it's not holding my stomach in", didn't suck or flatten mine either; you are round and bodacious that's all. This garment smoooooths you out and works with what YOU have.

The crotch area didn’t give me issues and is comfortable to wear. It does have several hook options for height adjustment but If you are very tall (umm over 5’8/ 5’9 or above) there might be issues because I played around with it and it didn’t make such a huge difference.

So I give it 4 stars because I really like it. It didn't wow me nor is it the best I've ever had. For me, this one is good...not perfect, but good. It is well made, the cups fit nicely with relatively good coverage and a light lining in the cup. The legs are not cut as high as I like, but the flat fabric at the leg does not leave a panty line, so they are fine. It smooths me out everywhere I wanted it to and is comfortable to wear all day so it's doing it's job nicely.

I ordered both the tan and black one. I’m glad it fit nicely and didn’t have to return both of them. If you do need to return them. They offer free returns, which is great otherwise I wouldn’t have ordered.

No, I did not receive this item for a discount. I do review other products at reduce price but I wasn't able to find shapewear to try...I wish, although the Amazon price is decent, people. Haha!
