A few friends of mine have raved about Rago and their waist cinching shapewear. I love my maidenform shapewear but as it is an all-in-one jobbie it can be quite annoying when going to ‘powder my nose’ in it and so I thought I’d give Rago a go.

My waist in around 33inches and so I was going to go for an XL which is for a 32inch waist, but it advised to go up a size if your hips were over ten inches bigger than your waist which mine are, so I purchased a 2XL instead, meant for 34inch waists.
It was so easy to do up as the hook and eyes were at the front which I LOVE and found so useful.


The Rago emphasises my waist giving me a ‘bell’ shape. However, I found that it cut into my huge hips and rolled up a bit, yet could have done with being tighter over my stomach – hourglass shape fail!

Here it is under a tight dress:

It is quite noticeable where it cuts into my hips, however it has taken inches off my stomach making a previously fitted dress appear baggy on me!

I would love it if Rago would make a slightly longer cincher or one that was more hourglass friendly so that it could be worn by taller women like me under a variety of outfits. This particular cincher will probably suit circle dresses better and so when my beautiful new circle dress arrives I shall test that theory!
