Secret Slimming™ Light Control Full Slip
Just what I needed
I wanted a slip that would give a smooth outline under a drapey dress. This was perfect. Compared with the others that I tried it was not a struggle to get on and off. The shoulder straps are wide and totally flat so are comfortable and don't show. I would wear this with a bra; if you are big-busted it won't provide enough support and if you are small it will minimise what is there. The colour, a greyish pink, is deeply unsexy but very practical.

Good smoothing effect
I bought this to go under some slimmer fitting jersey dresses that have a tendency to show lumps and bumps. I wanted something that would smooth me out a bit but it needed to be comfortable. This slip is just what I was after. To pick up a few points I read elsewhere: the fabric is quite thin. This is great for not bulking out clothes but because it is slim fitting you do need to sort of roll it on a bit like tights. Not a problem, just a technique. The bust area isn't very generous. I am a 32E and a 10 was ok on me. On size, I am a petite 8 and the 10 just fitted so you might want to go up a size. The front was quite low, probably because I'm only 5'1". I would also say that at the bottom, the edges did very slightly curve into my legs. Not noticeable given the type of dress I am wearing it with and not something I could feel but wanted to mention it. For what I wanted, creating a smoother look without feel restricted, this is very good.

For those knitted dresses
It's perfect for those knitted dresses which require just a light control. The only problem I have with it is that I can wear it only underneath longish dresses; I'm quite petite, so the vest gets down almost to my knees.

This item is the worst product I have ever prchased from M&S
it totally rides up within minutes of putting it on. By the time I arrived at work it was underneath my breasts, and continued to ride up all day. really frustrating
