Don't get this unless you plan on using this at home only. It will ride up every few seconds. I tried this once in the summer streets (my thin days). Immediately went home after walking 1 block to change. It rode up to my rear end and above. Then I tried this winter (today). Rode up like crazy. I tried it high up right under my ribs at first: rode up. Then I tried it as low as possible. It was a little better only because the material on top all bunched up. It's a super firm hold, beautiful material--double layered of soft fabric on top and a great mesh below. But it will ride up. The fit is really good. I'm petite, wear a size 0.

Great for petite people! Cup size fits perfectly. Crotch area gets 3 placement settings. The best part is that it is not thick (the adjustment area) so you don't feel like you're wearing a Granny maxi-pad--very important! Comfortable. It is a tight fit, so if you are a true XS/Size 0/32A person, get the S. It fit me perfectly. I like that you can wear it under a blazer and skirt and not have to worry ever about tucking anything in. Can be layers or wear as is. I'd prefer the most luxe, fine lace, but this will work okay for dark settings.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this in size S, champagne and red. I like that it fit my waist well, but the top portion for breast area was huge. The S should fit someone like me who is XS, 32A. However, the cup size was more like a B even when I tried adjusting the straps. The more i shortened the straps, the more the cups flared out. Way too big. I have her slip and bodysuit and the cups fit perfectly. Both of these camisole tops are not in proportion and not suited for someone petite. I'd say that you have to be a very tall, skinny, size B/semi-borderline size C cup person to fit this. The idea of lace is very nice--would be awesome if it could be more luxe. I like the straps, they are comfortable. Anyway, I returned my camisoles.
No, I do not recommend this product.

lace, mild compression, doubles as shorts

I like this and not. I love the lace which makes it easy for me to wear under long tops fashionably. Don't like the double layer: there is a panty attached inside rather than just the shorts itself. I prefer less layers. Almost on the verge of that diaper-feeling especially in the summer. If they could make each layer very thin, I would be more happy. Like they say, if you don't know your size for these type of things, this is a decent start--the compression is very light. I would have preferred a bit more compression, perhaps a length a little shorter to hide under mini skirts. Really hate that double layer feeling. Ugh.

I normally fit CK bras perfectly. I could actually do without any padding. This one had inserts you could remove, however it probably didn't make much difference removing it, it is basically part of the shape. The idea is genius: metal hardware, front closure, various options: conventional, criss cross, halter, t-back. Unfortunately, either one has to be very large for their cup size--I bought the A size and it did not fit the cup. The problem is where the straps are placed for the point of support. It creates a flare towards the front closure. Basically you need to be in between an A and B to fit it. Or they have to redesign the point where the straps is shaped/connected to the front side. If they moved it closer together, it would prevent more of the flare. Have to return this, I really loved the idea of it. The material was excellent, very soft microfiber and nice hardware, enough room for various configurations. Unfortunately that persistent flare would never go away unless you were additional inserts to fill it out, which I do not want to do. If you don't add inserts or something, you'll have the bra top (of the cup) poke the fabric, giving a really terrible look to the dress/top you're wearing. Loved the quality/idea, hated the fit.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I don't recommend this for petite people. The top of the waist band hits my ribs. Clearly Spanx is designing for taller people. I have other products of theirs (bra is nice, slips ride up and the I wind up with a scrunched up look underneath clothing bc of the long waist length). I found this very uncomfortable to wear. I did like the leg part, but not the waist area. I'm already thin, but this was a bit ridiculous how it hit me in the upper body area. When they say Higher Power, they really mean higher power. I gave it a good rating for tall people. I wanted to give it a lower rating for smaller people.

I'm petite and a 32A. I love this. It doesn't ride up the way some slips do (regular Spanx, for instance). Reason is because it's not shaped like a complete tube. (Also regular Spanx slips are made for longer waist lengths--tall people.) I love that it is can be worn strapless or halter. And it's short enough for me to wear shorter-than-knee-length dresses/skirts. I'd love to get this in another color, but the price is holding me back. However, this is extremely worth it. Love the quality, feel and fit. It's very smooth. Tight on top, recommended for small-chested.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Does this convert to halter?

Photo shows t-back. Description says traditional, racerback and criss cross.
