Esbelt Waist Cincher Vest - My Review

The Esbelt Waist Cincher Vest is made along the same principles as the Esbelt Waist Cincher. It just has shoulder straps and a higher back. It is quite a full on piece of shapewear in that it is super strong in control (maximum) and covers a lot of your torso. However, it is an amazing piece of shapewear and really does transform your figure.

PLEASE don’t be put off by the packaging it arrives in. It really isn’t very glamorous and the woman on the front is a bit scary looking!

When you take the Esbelt out of the packaging please be warned it will smell of rubber! However, this does disappear after a while – or you can wash it before you wear it.

The vest is made from a super strong latex (rubber) fabric with flexible boning and so it is quite a thick and heavy garment. It is this fabric and boning combination though that does the amazing trick of slimming you so effectively. It is worth it!

It is OPEN BUST in style, so there is a scooped section at the front for your bust to sit in. You can wear it with or without a bra.

The hem lined is curved to give a good fit.

The Esbelt Waist Cincher Slimming Vest fastens with hooks and eyes down the front of your chest. There are 2 sets of hooks and eyes, so you can wear it tight or VERY tight! The overlay over the hooks and eyes is fairly prominent and may show through very tight clothing.

The vest has shoulder straps which really help to hold everything in place. They are not detachable but are adjustable, thin and stretchy.

The lining is brushed cotton so it is comfortable to wear directly against your skin.

The back of the vest does come up really high. It is perfect for disguising any back boobs or bra bulges and will help to create a really smooth profile under your clothes.

There is a soft section of flexible material under the arms which really helps with the fit – you don’t get any oozing over the top. It also makes it very comfortable – no chaffing.

There are 4 flexible bones sewn into the fabric and 5 flat sewn seams. This does mean the vest is fairly bulky, so please be aware that it may show under flimsy clothing.

Pros: What I Like About The Esbelt Waist Cincher Slimming Vest

  • It is a no frills, heavy duty bit of shapewear made to really really (really) hold you in.
  • The combined effect of the rubber and boning make it extremely strong.
  • It pulls you in tightly at the waist and flattens your belly.
  • It makes you stand up much straighter (this always makes you look thinner).
  • It pulls your back straight and your shoulders back which makes your bust look much more impressive!!
  • It gives you loads of lower back support – brilliant for my back.
  • It is lined with cotton so you don’t have to wear anything underneath it.
  • It has two hook and eye settings so you can wear it tight or even tighter!
  • It is designed to be worn with your own bra.
  • The shoulder straps are adjustable and made from a really nice soft elastic that shouldn’t dig in.
  • There is a soft, elasticated piece under the arms so it shouldn’t rub.
  • The back is really high and so gets rid of your back boobs and bra bulges!
  • You don’t need to do anything to it to use the loo.

Cons: What I Don’t Like About The Esbelt Waist Cincher Slimming Vest

  • It smells of rubber which is initially off putting. However, this goes once you have washed it.
  • It makes you feel really trussed up & you certainly couldn’t eat a massive dinner whilst wearing it.
  • The bones can dig in a bit if they end up in the wrong place.
  • Only a minor gripe, but they could have made the packaging look a bit more appealing.
  • I reviewed the natural/nude colour and it is a of an odd pinky beige (not my favourite colour!).
  • It would definitely show under tight or light clothing as it is quite bulky.

How To Put The Esbelt Waist Cincher Slimming Vest On

You need to undo all of the hooks and eyes and put on the vest like a waistcoat. Adjust the straps to suit and then lie down to do up the hooks and eyes. It might take some huffing and puffing as this needs to fit very tightly. It is worth it though!

Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Waist Cincher - My Review

For a waist cincher (which kind of remind me of some sort of old fashioned granny thing) the Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Waist Cincher looks quite pretty. The material looks normal and is lovely and smooth and the boning is quite flexible so it doesn’t feel too much like being molded into a vamp! It has a shorter body than other waist cinchers, so it is suitable for shorter torsos.

The Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher is a very neat looking waist cincher. The fabric feels quite firm and on first sight you can't see the hidden boning.

Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Extra Firm Control Waist Cincher Shapewear Review Back

The back of the Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher is super smooth. There are 3 hidden bones but no seams, so it will lie perfectly under very tight clothing.


Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Extra Firm Control Waist Cincher 2615 Shapewear Review Hook and Eye Fastening

The Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher fastens down the front with one column of very strong hooks and eyes. This gives it a really tight fit and allows for super strong waist cinching!


Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Extra Firm Control Waist Cincher 2615 Shapewear Review Hem

The bottom hem on the Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher is curved to help give a really good fit. It is also slightly stretchy which helps it to mold to your body. It should not roll up - but if it does a top tip is to tuck the bottom into your knickers


Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Extra Firm Control Waist Cincher 2615 Shapewear Review Waist

The waistband on the Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher sits just under your bust. It is soft and stretchy and should grip nicely to your skin without irritation (no silicone lining).


Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Extra Firm Control Waist Cincher 2615 Outer Boning

End to end the medium Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher measures 26 inches along the top and 24 inches along the middle. These measurements are unstretched though – the medium size will stretch to fit waists measurement 27/28 inches, so it will slim your waist by 1-2 inches.

There are 7 hidden, very flexible bones in the Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher. 5 of the bones are completely invisible from the outer layer but the 2 that go down your sides have stitching.


Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Extra Firm Control Waist Cincher 2615 Shapewear Review Lining

The boning is easier to see from the inside – there are 7 bones in total all sewn into the fabric. The bones are bendy and so flex to fit your body shape. The lining is very soft and easy to wear directly against your skin.


Miraclesuit Inches Off Boned Extra Firm Control Waist Cincher 2615 Shapewear Review Measurements

The MEDIUM Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher should fit a UK dress size 12 with a waist measurement of 27-28". This should take 1-2 inches off your waist.

WAIST (side to side) = 31cm
FRONT (top to bottom) = 28cm
BACK (top to bottom) = 31cm
BOTTOM HEM (side to side) = 41cm


Pros: What I Like About The Miraclesuit Waist Cincher.

  • It looks less scary than other waist cinchers!
  • The fabric is nice and smooth and sort of bouncy.
  • It doesn’t have any seams down the back.
  • The hooks and eyes are nice and firm and allow you to really pull on it to do it up.
  • The boning is sort of flexible, strong and doesn’t dig in.
  • The boning is super well hidden.
  • It isn’t too long in the body (for shorter people!).
  • There are 4 sort of patches or areas of fabric down the sides which give a really nice fit. I think it helps to stop the cincher from rolling up or down.

Cons: What I Don’t Like About The Miraclesuit Waist Cincher.

  • The body of it is quite a bit shorter than other waist cinchers. I think I could have done with it being a few inches longer, but then I am quite tall at 5ft 10.
  • The seams down the sides might show through flimsy fabrics.
  • There is only one set of hooks and eyes down the front. Quite a lot of other waist cinchers have two sets which allow you to pull them in tight or tighter. Being used to this only having the one set was a bit disappointing.

This Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher comes in sizes Medium (UK12) to 2XLarge (UK18).

How To Put On The Miraclesuit Waist Cincher

We suggest that you first of all put on your bra and knickers. Open up the hooks and eyes and wrap the waist cincher around your middle. I find it easiest to get the bottom hem in the right place – so that it sits over any bulgy bits you are wanting to hide. Now start doing up the hooks and eyes from the top. These may need a bit of yanking to get them to fasten. Do remember that the waist cincher should fit very tightly in order to “cinch” in your waist. A friend of mine puts hers on lying down!

Wiggle and jiggle around the room to make sure the waist cincher is sitting perfectly in place.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset - My Review

The Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset comes in the usual, fairly unglamorous Esbelt packaging.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Packaging

The Fashion Corset is a wrap around the waist waist cincher which covers the tummy to just under the bust. The top of it is straight across and the bottom is shaped to give it a good fit. It is made from a very soft (but extremely strong) stretchy fabric. PLEASE ignore the funny blue colour of my photo, I will try and replace it ASAP with a better one. The problem is though that to get the definition of black on black fabric, the colour gets a little bit altered. Just to reassure you though, this waist cincher is VERY black in colour (not a hint of blue in real life!).

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Front View

We were actually quite surprised by the look of the fabric of the Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset. On the manufacturers photos it doesn’t really clearly show exactly what the fabric looks like. It is sort of pock-marked with black “dints” which actually looks quite stylish and different once you get it on.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Fabric Close Up

It fastens down the front with 2 sets of 15 hooks and eyes. You can wear this on the tight or REALLY TIGHT setting, depending on how much you want to cinch your waist in. The overlay that covers the hooks and eyes is noticeable but does lie flat under clothing.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Hook & Eyes

Laid out flat, the MEDIUM size measures 25.5 inches. This is non-stretched and it can stretch to fit 26 – 28 inch waists.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Stretched Out

The inside is lined with cotton, which makes it really comfortable to wear against the skin.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Inner Lining

From the inside you can see the boning. The corset has 4 flexible bones which are sewn into the fabric and should bend and shape to fit your body. PLEASE do not bend these by hand as they will break.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Inner Boning

There are 3 seams on the corset – 2 at the sides and one at the back. These are incredibly flat though and should not be visible under most clothing.

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Flat Sewn Seams

The back of the waist cincher is slightly shorter than the front, which gives it a good fit. Again, apologies for the blue colour in the photo. This is not the colour of the waist cincher in real life – it is VERY BLACK!

Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset Back View

What I Like About The Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset

  • It feels a lot lighter than the Esbelt Waist Cincher Slimming Corset
  • The outer layer is made from soft, stretchy fashion material.
  • Although there is some rubber in the fabric, it doesn’t smell of it!
  • It has 2 sets of hooks and eyes, so you can wear it tight or REALLY tight.
  • It is sized according to your (current) waist measurement.
  • The bones are very well hidden.
  • It makes an INCREDIBLE difference to your waistline and really flattens your tummy!

What I Don’t Like About The Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset

  • The fashion fabric isn’t for everyone – just a matter of personal taste!
  • It isn’t quite as strong in control as the Esbelt Waist Cincher Slimming Corset.
  • It will show under some clothing – the seams are very flat but still may show.

How To Put On The Esbelt Waist Cincher Fashion Corset

Put on your own bra and knickers first.

Wrap the waist cincher around your waist with the hooks and eyes at the front. We find it easier to start doing up the hooks and eyes from the TOP. If you find the middle hooks and eyes tricky to do up, do up some of the bottom ones and then lie down on the bed to fasten the rest.

Once you are all fastened in, give yourself a good shimmy and a shake to get the waist cincher sitting comfortably.
