Well in a bind I needed to get some shapewear and the dress I got wasn't the most flattering in the mid section. So I ran to Macy's looking for some and had a very difficult time finding one that had a bra attached that you could remove the straps. Most of them were all one piece, but I got lucky and found only one of these and in my size. Now at first, it was pretty difficult to get on, but it's shapewear so it is suppossed to be tight. The torso was a bit short, so it makes me have to pull it up pretty high which makes the butt cover come up so you have to keep adjusting it. Plus the bra part sits a little weird, but I've never had the best luck with strapless bras. Otherwise, the boning in the mid section of this is perfect! And at the end of the day it does the job!
