I purchased this item in a 2X which is the suggested size for my height and weight. I have owned this product for about 3-4 months now, and the only thing is that it is starting to feel real lose, and if I could go back, I would've gotten it in XL or large as it eventually stretches. Although it fits loose, it has not lost its hold! I guess I lost some weight. This product is practically unnoticeable under clothing, even tight tank tops do not show the seams. Looking to buy a strapless one for my wedding in April!
