Firm Control Magicwear™ Strapless B-DD Body
I ordered this item and THEN read the reviews. Mild panic set in, to say the least. I was expecting an ill-fitting product with poppers that don't stay together. Thankfully I was wrong and this fits like a dream!
I'm a 34 D and an average size 10. I'm quite tall with rather a long body. This product fitted like a dream! After having a child 4 years ago, I'm a little more wobbly than I used to be. I've recently been performing and dancing in a local Am-Dram production and bought this product to 'hold me together' a bit and boost my confidence, dancing with a bunch of young 'uns on stage every night. Some of the costumes were quite tight fitting and this gave me 100% confidence. I wore this for 3/4 hours every night for a week and had zero problems with it. It was done up and undone several times a night to enable toilet stops and the straps were removed/adjusted in accordance to which costume I had on. I took it home nightly to wash ready for the next day and there's been no shrinkage or colour change. I'd say I really put this item through it's paces in the space of a week.
I will definitely wear this under 'normal' circumstances again. I have a few weddings over the course of the summer and feel I can trust this 100% to do the job. If you're looking for something to wear under an outfit as a one off - this is for you. If you're looking for something to wear a lot - this is the item for you. I feel fabulous in it! Well done M&S!!

Poppers dont stay done up!
As a wearer of Magicwear for some years, I've exprienced all the different designs and I can say I have never felt the need to write a review until now.
This is too short in the body therefore the cups are slightly too low to support you properly. I can live with that, but....
The poppers are constantly coming undone! This makes it unwearable.
Why do M&S keep changing something that doesn't need changing? Please rectify this problem, I live in these magicwear bodies and if I can't wear yours, I shall be taking my custom elsewhere.

I wouldn't say I was that long in the body but if I want to wear it strapless it would not stay up. Very disappointing

Sadly had to return it as it was too short in the body! As the dress I was planning to wear it under is "petite" I would not describe myself as having more than an average size torso. When returned to store another customer was returning the same garment for the same reason.

Excellent shaping and nice and long
Gives a really good shape under a dress but not had a chance to wear properly yet. I am quite tall and but the length is perfect. I don't think the poppers popping when they shouldn't will be a problem though as they seem very firm and if anything a little difficult to undo. As mentioned in a previous review the straps are likely to come off a little too easily so I shall probably tack on for security.
Bit pricey but I purchased when I had 20% off vouchers.
