Just the job - as promised
on 7 November 2011
More than 10 years ago, I tried the shorter 3-inch, which was the only style I could find then. I found it helpful as I was reducing at the time, but was looking for a taller style. And it came along. And I got one. And it does everything I want. And it's available in black now, so more convenient under clothes. I'm slimmer now but still it firms up the waist and smooths out the "handles." Clothes fit better and people have been commenting on my new fitness. Of course, it's not fitness; its control. Go for it.
Advice about sizing is confusing. I'm at the top end of 34-36 inches, and Medium feels like gentle pressure once it's on. For a firmer fit and more control on my waist, I would go for a size less next time.
Now I'll get the 12-inch, too.
