I bought this item online and received it two days ago (3/6/12). I bought it in a Medium Beige. I had some concerns about it fitting properly due to the fact that I am only 5'0, but this shaper did fit nicely even with my short torso. The hook and eye closure used for going to the bathroom is easy to undo and redo (a huge plus as many shapers are not!). The fabric is breathable I wore it all day with Jeans, a cami, and a button down blouse and did not get "overly" sweaty. It is comfortable in the sense that I am not being so squished I can't breath and it doesn't roll up like some body shapers and I love that you can wear your own bra! I am a 34DD and the shaper has helped to "lift my chest just because of how it sits below my breasts. However, I bought this item because I have a "pot belly" due to Cerberal Palsy (and a small amount of bad eating habits I will admit) and this shaper does NOTHING to pull that in. It is not a large potbelly I am only a size 7-8 pants. I think this shaper was meant to deal with the "flabby skin or hanging bellies that some women get from rapid excessive weight gain and loss. It is not build to actually "Suck you in", but to stop your flesh from jiggling which I do not have a problem with. So, if you do not have excess jiggling that is going on I would stay away from this shaper, as it does NOTHING to actually suck you in.
