Good fit for a tall size 18
By Annie Oakely
About Me Comfort Driven
Comments about Avenue WYOB Firm Singlet (Sizes XL/2X):
Purchased the 2x (I'm a tall hourglass 18 with the sands of time accumulating at the midsection!). A little bit difficult pulling the waistline over my hips (full hips). Good fit otherwise. Does not show a crease line where the bottom of the leg ends. Which I really expected it would. Surprised me. I LOVE I can wear my own bra with this.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

WOW... Turned my very apple shape (huge tummy) into a fantastic hourglass. I was astounded at how good it looked. Made me look much slimmer, no bulges, I want to wear it constantly. The legs don't slim... but I purchased the one with legs so I wouldn't have that weird hip bulge you see under dresses when you get the one that looks like a one piece swim suit. Does that only happen to me? Anyway. Buy it. It's worth every penny. A little rough to put on but I've owned far worse. And I just kept trying on everything in my closet after I put it on because everything looked so good!
from the cupboard under the stairs
I was excited to get this because I've never owned a singlet and had to tuck a control top into control shorts before if i wanted all-over smoothing. But this thing is far from perfect - my biggest complaint is the bottom half. It provides little to no support or smoothing in the butt, hips, and thighs. The unfinished hemline on the thighs rolls up constantly, which defeats the purpose of having the unfinished hemline in the first place (the rolling will cause a line to show through your dress/pants and you still get the "bulge"). The part that goes by your bra in front is the same, and the fabric slips and rolls down uncomfortably, often right under my bra wire. There are weird seams on the sides and around the middle (you can't see these in the picture) which are of course due to the fact that it's only the midsection of this thing that's double-lined or supportive at all. In certain clothes, you would for sure be able to see these (maybe no one realizes this?). I would return this if I hadn't gotten it so cheap on Cyber Monday. I'll just have to make sure I don't wear it with anything that clingy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

hard to put on, but worth it!
I ordered the correct size as stated on the size charts. It was difficult to get on, but worth the effort. It provided a lot of figure flattering smoothness and support in the abdominal/back/underbust area. There was less support in the thigh area, but this is necessary to stop the unflattering bulge at the end of the firm shapewear. The straps were not uncomfortabe over my bra. The fabric properties allowed for me to be cool and comfortable in my formal dress. I have only 2 complaints; 1)using the restroom was VERY difficult. The crotch opening could stand to either be larger or have snaps. 2)The fabric on the bottom of the thighs rolled when I would sit down. I was in the Ladies room several times adjusting. I would have preferred the thigh area to be a tad longer, to the knees maybe, to prevent the rolling issue.If you could get the thigh area not to roll, thigh highs would tuck very nicely under the ends to allow for hosiery. All in all, I am glad I bought it and will use it again.

The first time I tried to put this on I did not think I would ever get it over my hips let alone up to my shoulders. This was not easy to get into but I do not think any singlet would be. Once on it is really quite comfortable. It is does it's job very well and made me look almost 2sizes smaller! I was worried about the reviews that said the thighs rolled up because I hate that more than anything. But the thighs NEVER rolled up! The thighs almost look unfinished with no hem but once on they are made that way for comfort, do not make a leg bulge and again did not roll. I bought my real size and that was smart because although it was difficult getting on it made my dress look fabulous! The shoulder straps stayed in place and were comfortable. I am very pleased with this singlet.

This singlet is super tight when you first put it on, but wow does it do a great job at slimming. It stays in place very well, and I don't mind wearing it for a 10 hr day of work meetings.

Reviews didn't Disappoint
from Huntsville, AL
I wear this under my work clothes and occassionally under jeans and a tshirt also. It's great for wearing under dressy clothes as well. The main problem I have is that there is no easy way to go to the restroom while wearing this. You basically have to strip off all your clothes. Towards the end of the day the legs start to roll up a bit, but this can easily be fixed with a little adjusting. Most of the reviews advise to order a size or two up from what you would normally wear. I definitely agree. I normally order XL or 1X and I ordered 2X for the singlet. The first few times you wear it you will have to become a contortionist, but it gets easier.

This shaper is firm control, and fits beautifully.The abdomen area is firm, the buttocks and thigh are not as firm.(which I like) It hits about mid thigh and does not cut into your thigh and show under your pants like some shapers do. The top allows you to wear your own bra and does not squeeze your breasts. As a matter of fact it lifts them up and makes you look sexy. The fabric on the top rests on your bra and does not show at all. Take it from someone with a closet full of shapewear, all makes and prices. This is the best ever! I am 5'4" and 196 lbs. with a very thick middle!(flabby belly) BUY IT!
