Symom - I'm glad the review is helpful.

Thanks so much for your insight on the flattering shape; I too need extra waist definition and was concerned it would be too loose/bulky. I also appreciate your notes on the fba as I'd definitely have to do this as well :) Cheers, fellow inverted triangle! ^_^
