This is my second purchase from Killer Waist (2x), because my first one was a little too loose (3x) in my opinion. I'm 5'3", 208lbs., size 14w/16w, pear shape and I have a tummy, butt & hips. I don't like my tummy, so this sweat belt will help a lot for my problem area. It's snug, but not so tight that it cuts off circulation, but effective during workouts. Also, it is a longer fit for me, because it goes from under my breast to the bottom of my stomach-lol! I hope this helps someone simular to my size. I'm happier with my second purchase.
