This is an amazing deal for what it actually does. I bought my true size (3x) and it smoothed me out beautifully. The waist is high and stayed up all day. Very comfortable. It breathed as well which was fantastic. Someone mentioned a sound from thigh rub due to the fabric. I will say that I never had this issue. I didn't hear a single sound as I walked around. It is a very very soft fabric so I don't understand where a "sound" would come from. I am buying two more to add to my collection. This is a winner on all levels.
