The compression is very nice but not uncomfortable. I am 5'2 roughly 230 lbs I ordered an XXL and it does the job well on my stomach area but the clasp area for the crotch is a little loose.
Love love love this shapewear, I admit I was worried I’d be buldging out in areas. I was even worried as I was putting it on that it wouldn’t fit me. Took it one hook at a time and when I felt my top area by my ribs was bulding over the top I was worried again then I put the straps over my shoulders and ! Looked and felt amazing .
Just got my faha and I got a xl. I have big legs they are 26 1/2 inches thick and waist is a 33in so an xl is good.
