I normally wear Ann Chery, but decided to try something different. At first appearance, it looks like it's not of the same quality as it's competitors. My biggest concern was that it would not last long and tear up. I've been wearing it for almost 3 weeks now and I can say that looks can be deceiving.
It's lighter than any other faja I have owned, which is a plus since Summer is approaching. It's not as firm as my Ann Chery; however, that doesn't take away from it's effectiveness. The biggest plus is that there is no digging in the sides and back from the flexible boning. This cincher is more for those that don't need as much compression or those who want to get the "feel" for waist training or faja wear before fully committing.
Best waist cincher I have ever used. I started with the large and once I was on the 2nd row of fasteners comfortably for a month, I moved down to the medium. I wear this everyday for about 8-10. Along with my exercise, it has helped me lose inches off my waist and reminds me to pull my abs in when doing my everyday routine.
