I went with the size that was indicated on the sizing chart. Unfortunately, it is a size too big for me. It still works and helps with sucking in my gut, but I wish it had a tighter fit. The waist cincher is actually quite comfortable.I have worn it under a variety of different tops and have never been uncomfortable in any activity. The waist cincher is not visible or obvious through any of the tops I have worn it with. That is a huge plus!
The waist cincher consists of two rows of eye hooks. It does take a bit of time to get them all hooked but the hooks slide right in for a secure fit. Layered over that is a simple zipper that gives it a tad bit more of a suck it in type of feeling.
I received this product at a discounted price.
