Let me preface this by saying that I never used to wear girdles. I had a classic black pencil skirt that I loved to wear, but the waist was slightly too tight for comfort to wear on a normal day, and I grew tired of the muffin top that resulted, even with a wide elastic belt over my waist. At one point, I bought a Rago 1294 open-bottom, high-waisted girdle in white, as my first girdle. I never got comfortable with it and only wore it once...it wasn't as tight as I felt it should have been, the zipper pull made an obvious bump under clothing, there was slight muffin-top above the girdle, and it came WAY too far down on my legs (I'm 5' 6" and really long-waisted, so I'm still scratching my head how others wear the 1294 without the suspenders almost touching their knees. My legs aren't THAT short). So I consigned it and the pencil skirt to the closet.
Fast forward a few years. Fed up with the limitations of not being able to wear snug garments without the proper support (and...
While I am a big fan of vintage foundation garments this is my first long leg panty girdle. I typically prefer either an open bottom girdle or panty girdle which I wear with gartered stockings. However, I started looking for a girdle that would provide me with some thigh control as well as addressing my other problem areas. I was a bit skeptical at finding a long leg girdle that would fulfill my needs and still be comfortable and feminine. I am a fan of some of Rago's foundation garments and came across the Rago High Waist Long Leg Shaper Girdle and decided to give it a try based on it's feminine look and my luck with past Rago purchases.
It actually fit and looked better on me than I thought it would. I find that it does a great job of addressing my trouble spots and makes my clothes look better on me. It also helps in improving my posture and gives me a more feminine look. My job requires me to spend a lot of time sitting so comfort and posture control are very important...
I don't really like the fit of this. It's okay, but not the best. The Rago open girdle is much better in my opinion. I bought this to wear underneath my pinup girl dresses, but I noticed you can see the lines underneath the dress. I ended up sending it back due to the fit and look of it.
UPDATE---So, I ordered this from another site in the beige color. I ordered it at the same time I ordered the black one from Amazon, but it took much longer to receive. When I did receive the beige one, the fit was awesome! I also couldn't see any lines underneath my dress. It fit much differently than the black one I ordered thru Amazon and I couldn't understand why. I decided to give it another go and ordered it in black from Amazon again. I just received it and it is awesome! I was worried that it would show thru my dresses being black, but it does not. Not sure what happened the first time, but I'm glad I decided to give it another try : ) This is actually more comfortable...
