Awesome - does exactly what it says!Sep 07, 2007
I started out with a Medium sized Squeem Vest about a week before I used this small sized waist cincher - you can see the product here: Squeem Magical Lingerie Shapewear, Firm Compression, Cotton & Rubber, Vest, Black, Medium
I love the cincher since I can use it with a sleeveless top and don't have to worry about the straps or strap irritation. There is truth to the claim that it reshapes your waist - I never had curves and I'm just beginning to have a womanly shape to my waist. The only thing I don't like is that the cincher can sometimes squeeze the fat up to the top of the cincher and then you have a mini roll there - not always an issue, just sometimes I noticed it. The vest goes up all the way, so you don't have that problem.
Either way, I highly recommend this product and have become a firm believer in what Squeem can do. :)
EDIT: Amazon won't let me review the squeem vest I bought since this cincher and the vest are considered part of the same series. So, I'll include it here since I think there are some differences.
"I'm 5'9, 135 lbs and shaped like a boy - I've never had sultry curves and I am kind of roly-poly around the belly. So, I bought this hoping I could feel more comfortable in my clothing. I was skeptical of the claims to reduce inches and the whole sweating-your-way-to-thinness thing, but my goal wasn't necessarily permanent waist reduction.
Well, it's been about a week and a half since I've been using this, and honestly, it's no gimmick. I've used Spanx and Flexees, but this is different. It's sturdier, doesn't roll up and it definitely flattens the tummy and does not fold over on itself. I have a womanly shape when I wear it - it's amazing. The first day, I could barely get the medium to close on the first latches. It was very tight, but not uncomfortable. After a few hours, I forgot I was wearing it so I decided to try and see if I could squeeze it down a notch - voila! It fit on the second set of hooks! What was even more surprising was going home and taking it off and seeing that my body stayed in this curvy shape for about 1/2 an hour. This was all a very impressive first day - so I decided to stick to it.
I wear it every day for about 8 hours. I do sweat a lot when I wear it and I don't like it touching my skin directly because it gets clammy - so I wear very thin tank tops as an undershirt and it still works - super sweaty without the clammy. In the past week, it has become even more comfortable to wear and in only a week, my waist retains the shape for an hour now (I can't wait until after I've worn it for a few months!) I also now have no problem fastening it on the second row of hooks (the tightest) and staying comfortable. I was so inspired that I ordered the waist cincher in a small to gradually get my waist down to that size (product and my review here: Squeem Magical Lingerie Shapewear, Firm Compression, Cotton & Rubber, Waist Cincher, Nude, Small they both have different advantages and disadvantages.)
I like the vest because the back is high, so I don't have to worry about back fat popping up or out. The vest also works wonders for your chest. I have an average B-C cup that normally doesn't look like much. Once this vest is on, they perk right up. The vest is pretty long so I've never had to deal with fat popping out the bottom. You do have to wear it as an undergarment or corset (tucked into your pants/skirt) otherwise you'll have the lines of your pants or bottoms pressed into your skin and that kind of hurts. Also, the straps are very thick, making it difficult to wear with some sleeveless tops. At first I wore the straps pretty tight for maximum chest perkiness but they began to rub my skin raw so I loosened them up and they are no longer an issue. Also, if you wear super tight shirts, you can see the clasps at the front - I've worn some tight shirts though and no one but me has noticed.
I highly recommend this and have already told my best friend and my mom to order since I truly feel it's worth the investment. "

3 inches & back feels much betterJul 12, 2011
By Dances on Ice
I just got mine after reading everyone's review. My existing waist is 34 inches. I ordered a large, and think that I will have to order a medium soon. I ripped it out of the box, and fastened it up. Went on easy. I went from a 34 to a 31. It is comfortable too. I live in a hot & humid climate, and I wore it tonight outside. Not sweating in it....but it was night time. But, hey, I'm mainly indoors.
But, the best part....I didn't realize that my back was so "unsupported" before. It feels wonderful with the Squeem. I put it on, and my spine went "ahhhhh, I needed that!" I have to wait another year to get my tummy tuck...but this is going to do the trick until then.
Under lightweight material or certain sweaters/knits? It's not a good choice. the hook line (in the front) will show. Makes one wonder if you have staples up your midline. That's hte bad thing.
I did have a hard time figuring out what size to order. The size chart on my box says:
Xsmall 25-27 inch waist, 0-2 dress size
small 28-30, 4-6
Medium 31-33, 8-10
Large 34-36, 12-14
Xlarge 37-39, 14-16
2x 40-42, 16-18
3x 43-45, 18-20
4x 46-48, 20-22
5x 49-51, 22-24

You won't squirm in a squeem....Nov 30, 2010
This definitely is a pretty comfy waist cincher. I was initially skeptical of purchasing, because I am naturally curious about products prior to purchase. I normally end up researching and investigating to death, to the point where I'll dig up a ton of negative reviews for something and a bunch of positives. By the end, I'm usually as confused and indecisive as when I started! So that's why giving the 'Squeem' a chance was such a hard decision for me. I had been window shopping shapewear for a while and still had no clue what to go with. I have to say, after owning the Squeem since September it is definitely a worthy piece of lingerie shapewear!
In terms of comfort, it is easy to forget you have it on after the first hour. Sometimes I will be wearing mine for eight hours and then finally realize I should take it off next time I get home. I am quite busty for my size (5'0" and 32D), and so I can fully, FULLY relate to ladies who complain of back pain and discomfort posture-wise. I think this Squeem has helped, actually. I've noticed on days where I wear my Squeem for 3+ hours my back hurts MUCH, MUCH less than on days where I do not. I admittedly have crappy posture, lol, so clearly it is the Squeem forcing me to stand/sit more upright that's likely making a difference. The only thing discomfort-wise, sometimes depending on the bra you are wearing, there might be some slight awkwardness with the underboob, upper stomach area. At least for me, I have a super short torso, and I have noticed sometimes certain bras feel weird combined with the squeem, some even pinching a little. But I have learned which of my bras go best with the Squeem (surprisingly, for me, it's the regular ol' non-padded T-Shirt bras which are the comfiest and seamlessly combined). At certain angles it's a no-go...i.e., laying down is uncomfortable or trying to do crazy bending over, etc. is a no-go too, but I'd think that's the case with waist cinchers in general...
In terms of quality, I feel like it has not lost any of it's cinching ability since I've had it. I've worn it quite a bit too. Particularly in October, I was wearing it just about everyday, for long stretches of time. It still feels pretty sturdy, the hooks work perfectly, the material is holding up, etc.
As far as blending with your everyday wardrobe? Well, I mostly wear it to work. My work uniform is baggy and unshapely, so I haven't really had to worry about whether or not those around me can tell if I'm wearing one. However, the times where I have worn tighter clothing, I think it meshed impressively! I took pictures just to test, and you can't really tell I have a waist cincher on. Of course, I personally feel like an imposter in everyday clothes and a waist cincher, lol. I always feel paranoid whenever out and about that somebody's gaping at my waist, wondering if it's authentic. But yeah, definitely not very bulky or noticeable. Particularly in darker clothing or patterned tops. It also blends well with dresses! I wore it on Halloween, lol. ;P
Then there's sizing. I was conflicted before I ordered, because I read various different charts about how these squeems are sized. I was kind of worried I'd order something too small or too big. I wanted something REALLY TIGHT, but I wanted to not feel like I'm about to pass out, heh. I was torn between ordering an Extra Small or just a Small. Typically I wear XS in tops in general, however, there are SOME exceptions, like button blouses and certain jackets, where I could never wear an XS, I need a Small. I was worried I'd choose wrong. After looking at many websites, I decided to go with the general measurements that seemed to more/less stand for XS/Petite/Whatever you want to call it ( I went with my gut, though, and bought the Extra Small). Basically what I'm saying, be realistic about what size you want to order! If you generally wear medium clothing, go with a medium! If you wear XL, go with that! ETC. Even more, go by your specific MEASUREMENTS. I chose XS because 24/25 inch waist, 32 bust, and the size 2 all described me. At first I was like OH NO, because it seemed impossible to connect the hooks (you'll feel like a fatty mcfat fat >.>), but take in a deep breath as you do it the first couple times. Before you know it you'll be able to latch it onto the SECOND hood without even sucking it in! :)
I also feel fuller when I eat with this thing on. I'll get halfway through my meal, and feel full. Then there is the increase of bowel movements! TMI, TMI, I know, I know, but you'll see what I mean!
All-in-all it's a GREAT buy. It improves your posture, reduces your waist by about 3 inches to give you that crazy desired hourglass thang going on(really, it does!), blends surprisingly well, and helps when it comes to toilet visits much the same way fiber does! I keed, I keed. But, seriously, I recommend it, worth the buy, and I'm a pretty harsh critic, sooo....

Worth every penny!Mar 14, 2008
By Dawn M. Hester
I bought this at my local lingerie store. The lady that sold it to me had a 25 inch waist! (and she was a grandmother of 13!) She said to put cocoa butter on your stomach first,(for stretch marks, if any) then saran/plastic wrap, then put the waist cincher on, wear it every day and you WILL lose that belly! I am living proof! Worth every penny!

Maybe not magical for short peopleOct 17, 2009
By cat bounds
I'm 5'2" and weigh 135, so there's not a ton of stuff around my waist, but I'm 61, and everything just seems softer and fluffier than it used to be, even though I walk and do yoga/pilates & Wii Fit regularly, so I read the reviews and finally decided to give this one a try. I haven't had on a "girdle" in 30 years, so maybe I've just forgotten how it feels not to be able to breathe comfortably. I got a medium and after some gyrations and a bit of a learning curve, got it hooked up in front. It does give a nice curve to my waist, and I immediately measured 1 1/2 inches smaller :), and when I walk, I have better posture.
The down side is that I work at my computer, and I cannot sit for very long with this cincher on. I think part of the problem is that one size doesn't fit all in length. It pushes my cleavage up where God never meant for it to be, because it's long on me. A taller girl might have no problem. And because my waist is shorter, the narrow part extends up over my ribs, and it actually gets painful when I sit, and I find myself panting little short breaths. Also, there's the issue of where the fluff goes when you squeeze it in. I was feeling pretty good, looking in the mirror, till I turned and saw the part bubbling over in back. That just would look scary with a fitted blouse on........Also, the part I had hoped would be flattened, my abdomen, doesn't seem to be affected at all by the cincher. It's still a pouf, with or without it. I wouldn't call it magical.
So, I'll probably keep it, but I won't be wearing it daily as I had planned. I was already planning to lose 5 pounds, and maybe then it will fit more comfortably, and I'll probably wear it to some Holiday gatherings.
