Day 1/ 1st hook row have a snug fit. By Day 3/ 4th hook row and feeling lose with little stomach control. Wearing: I wear for 12hrs daily at work as a nursing assistant with no problems. The plastic boning did not poke nor rolled. When the corset was on the 4th hook row I adjusted the straps for a more snug fit. This caused the plastic boning to poke me in my back and side causing discomfort. So I order another going from 2X to a large. Physical: I did get sweat from doing patient rounds and daily care. How much? Hard to measure because I wore waist high support underwear to catch any moisture. The stomach area was damp enough to my liking. Pretty sure if I did a workout in this I would be dripping sweat from mild exercise activity. It is easy for me to remember to hold my stomach in to strengthen my stomach and back muscles. When I am not wearing the corset, I've noticed that my stomach is not bulging out as much nor my side handles. Appearance: The straps do show through my scrubs a little in the front. No biggie. I talk about my weight management journey publicly anyway. I did rotate my wearing of the corset by having the tag up top for 12hrs and down for the next 12hrs. I don't think this contributed to the stretching wear of the corset material because I was on 4th hook row all the way up and down. I feel that keeping my stomach pulled in on my own during the wearing and not wearing of the corset aid in the hook downsizing. Customer Service: Their reply to my emails was fast and polite/ helpful. The website can use a little work in being more customer friendly. There is descriptions for some corset as having steel boning when it is plastic boning. The drop menu for ordering the item picture needs a seriously change. The drop menu listed every corset and waist trainer available. The drop menu comes across as add-ons for the item pictured. Very confused when my item arrived and it was not what I thought I order. Customer Service was very helpful in getting my order correct. Just had to send photos and wait for the return label to send item back. I decided to keep it and order the item I originally wanted. They helped during the whole process of getting my set up. 4 STARS: Because the drop menu is confusing.
Reached 4th hook less than 3 days!!
