1. Materials too thick.
2. Very noticeable under shirts, sweaters, dresses.
3. Does not support back.
4. Bends at top and bottom.
5. Makes you look fatter from a side view in mirror.
6. Just an overall waste of money!
I absolutely would never recommend this for any women, I am 5'4, 130 pounds and this belt did not help look any slimmer, so disappointing! Don't waste your money ladies.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
