I like it... until it starts rolling up.
I didn't buy this as shapewear, exactly... I have nerve pain around my ribcage area that feels better when gentle-but-firm pressure is constantly applied. This seemed like a good way to cover the whole torso area, but still allow me to wear my regular bras, and not add any additional seams that could dig in and aggravate my pain. The verdict is, it *sort of* works. It hugs my ribcage nicely and makes me a lot more comfortable in that area. But, it rolls up relentlessly from the bottom, and as anyone who's ever worn spandexy things knows, when they roll up, they also dig in. So while things are great above the waist, below the waist is a tight band of fabric rolling up ever higher, digging in, and just generally being a huge pain (literally and figuratively). I'm considering trying the next size up to see if that makes any difference, but then I suspect it will be looser over the ribs too and defeat the whole purpose.
