I used to need to sleep with a hot water bottle on my hips in winter, i have worn this to bed on very cold nights, and not required the water bottle. Which has made a huge difference for me.
I wear between a 16-18, i bought the large, they stretch so much, i may buy the size down for next year. Even being slightly loose i have never found it has ridden down, or up (and i have worn over tights). It has enabled me to wear dresses to work in winter, and have the warmth that i need.
That aside, it's great! It stays in place really well (I thought it would do that annoying rolling itself up/down thing that spanx etc do, but no, it stays in place nice and smooth very well. Super-comfortable. And it makes you feel really nice and warm. Recommended by my acupuncturist as I have 'cold' kidneys and of course this covers exactly that part of your body where clothes usually gape as you bend over, leaving you cold on your lower back. This makes you feel really cosy without being too hot and goes well under clothes. Very much recommended, like other reviews for these products I wore it for days as I didn't want to do without it while I washed it! I'll probably buy another one so I can wash and wear.... once you start using it you don't want to be without it.
