I purchased this garment from a kiosk in the mall & overall I like it. I've seen a great results! The trick to putting it on is turning it inside out & pulling it up w/ the snap bottom on top, so when you get it to your waist, you pull the straps up, which will have it fit correctly.
What I don't like about it is that it makes my stomach itchy when I take it off b/c of all the toxins absorbed, it has bruised my sides b/c of the tight pressure, and the panties will rise, making it extremely uncomfortable.
But I do recommend this product.
