This hugs the body without being too baggy or too tight. I can finally feel sexy and comfortable! I wear this when I want to feel like myself, and make an impression that I have made an effort to look professional and valuable ;) I bought the Small in Black, and it hugs the back really nicely - giving shape to the lower back and booty! This is craftfully designed and not just a paper bag. I am so glad I have held out hope and found this brand!
