SPANX® Slimplicity Open-Bust Body Suit
GOOD THEORY, POOR EXECUTION
This is a great idea, but I fail to see the point of the metal bits on the straps on non-adjustable straps. They dig into your arm making this garment totally impossible to wear. It will be going back and I'll try the high top brief type and see if that will stay up. I wanted the one with straps to make sure it didn't roll down, but the positioning of the useless metal tabs is insane.

There are two similar items like this--one from Cacique and one from Spanx. Despite the higher cost, I opted for the original, the Spanx. I'm so glad I did. It did exactly what I needed it to for an important work event. I wore it under a skirt/top combo and it smoothed everything out and took about an inch off my waist. The size (1X) was true to claims, at least for me...in fact, I didn't even have to adjust the straps. The leg portion fell just above the hemline of my knee-length skirt. As others have mentioned, the straps dug in a little to my shoulders, but it was well worth that slight discomfort. The straps ensure there's no rolling or adjusting...just put it on and forget it's there. I chose to put it on over my tights so that it kept them from rolling at the waist, too. This was absolutely worth every penny!

I bought this for wearing under my dress. But the straps digs in my shoulders and that's the only thing but with that said I love it overall
