Bodymax Stretch Cotton Sleeveless Shaping Vest
One wash and it has become limp
In so many ways a great product, but after a few washes it loses all elasticity, and before long becomes just another rag for household duties. With all the advances in textile technology, surely it is possible to make a great idea something better than what is as disposable as a paper napkin.

I purchased this vest for my partner to wear at a wedding as his suit was a tad tight on him and it made enough difference for the suit to fit nicely and look very smart. He said it was very comfortable to wear and he would use it again. The vest is of a very good quality.
I would recommend using a size smaller if more strength is required.

I have purchased another two!
I am 6ft tall, 15stone and have a 46" chest - am a standard M&S XL. I read the other reviews where many said "get a size smaller". Stupidly I ignored this advice and got a XL size but it was as loose as a normal vest so I purchased a L size instead. This is a good fit and genuinely smooths my trunk. I was not expecting miracles but I do feel more confident when wearing it and it cannot be seen under a Polo shirt. The vest was so good that I have purchased another two.
Two points I would make. Firstly, a reinforced panel like the one over the stomach area should be added over the chest or the material there should be made stronger. Secondly, the vest could be made a bit longer (2") so that it doesn't ride up and come un tucked or perhaps a "Tall" version could be introduced.
Overall, a really good product especially for the middle aged/older man.

I found one in a sale some time ago. I'm not convinced about the body 'shaping' claims but I love the warmth and close fitting comfort. I have since bought the T shirt version and they are better than the standard M&S thermal underwear.
