I used to weigh 421lbs, I lost weight and dropped down to around 224lbs, and with such a dramatic weight loss, I was left with a large amount of loose skin, along with other pretty big imperfections from the weight loss that can only be removed through surgery now. This compression shirt changed my life. No, I am not being mellow dramatic. All my skin and different folds (I know sounds gross) are packed away and are tightly compact with this tank making me feel so much more confident and comfortable along with making me look, well, not like a melted candle in my shirts and various hoodies/jackets LOL. It's amazing how much of a difference this product has made in my life. Currently, I am in need of replacing one that I bought about 7 or 8 months ago, only because I didn't take the best care of it when it came to washing it correctly. Tip! Do NOT put the tank on when it is still damp or wet from washing and letting it hang dry. It can cause little tears which is 100% my fault on my end when stretching it on. This thing is super durable when dry and I can see it lasting a long time with great care. Also one last tip! If you are using this for day to day wear. Make sure to buy more than 1!
