Light Control Wear Your Own Bra Full Body
Wonderful concept that presents a clear dilemma!
I bought this full body by post order and as soon as I opened the package I could tell that the fabric was of good quality and would do what it was supposed to do. I like the idea of being able to wear my own bra and smoothing out the lumps and bumps under trousers.
Then I tried it on. It fit perfectly except for the fact that the legs were a little bit too long, and the straps a bit thin-I'm afraid they will rip off after a while.
The big problem, and one that needs to be addressed immediately, is that how in the world is one supposed to go to the bathroom after one has wriggled oneself into this garment? There is a very small "evacuation" hole in the lower bottom part of the body, but it does not serve the purpose at all because there is no way to pull down your panties, which are pressed tightly against your bottom under the garment. Even if you didn't have panties on, we all know that girls can't "aim" through small holes. This means that you have to take off your top, blouse or sweater and pull the whole thing down in order to do what needs to be done. An even bigger problem if you are wearing layered garments. If you're lucky you will make it in time-if not, what a mess there will be!
So, if you have bought this body-a good concept all-in-all and are planning to wear it for more than a few hours, I would recommend cutting back on liquids and staying close to the loo!

Full body that does the job!
I'm 5'11 like a previous reviewer and bought these after that review mentioned how long they are in the leg. I have to disagree! they only just reach the top of my ankles and that's after a lot of tugging down!
I'm keeping them as they are great to wear under a dress as you get no nasty bulges around the middle that you get with tights. I usually wear long boots so they will be fine even though they are short on the leg.
So for any other tall ladies out there i doubt there will be any need to roll up!
I also agree with the previous reviewer in that there should be more size options as the 12-14 is a little tight but the 16-18 is too big! I ordered both to compare.

Larger size range required
Even though this is probably a slightly large fit, M&S should realise that those in sizes 6-8 are unlikely to need such garments and that those size 20+ do! An actual 18 (rather than 16-18) might well be OK for me, as that's my treggings size from M&S, but with a pull-on control garment, however 'kind', it's those in a larger size range (and bigger than me) who should be considered when deciding size ranges for shapewear!
M&S PLEASE DO TAKE NOTE!

I bought two weeks ago and I really recommend it. I am 5.3” so it is long for me and less tight.

a new body
This is a great piece of underwear. It smooths out all the lumpy bits, tum and inner thighs. Gives a nice smooth shape.. It is not too restricting, so it is very comfy and feels very light ,its okay to pull on. I like the top shape , being able to wear your own bra, you don,t end up with a squashed in bust
A nude colour would be good M&S
