This Shaparee by QT Intimates camisole body liner features a padded shelf bra with removable pads, and removable and adjustable camisole straps. Bodice is unlined with matching gusset. Liner comes with one set of clear and nude camisole straps.
I like the coverage of this liner, and how extremely thin it is- no added bulk! But I'm disappointed in the support. I specifically bought this hoping to get a little more support, but it has less than my regular leos. The padding is very light, so it doesn't really change the shape of your bust, which I consider a plus. However, the lack of support is a huge downside. If this was something I could return, I would. For reference, I'm 5'5'', 115 lbs, small chested (32b) and purchased a S/M.
I really love this body liner ! It is very comfortable and fits great. Padding is nice as well. I just wish it came in darker colors because I am brown and therefore need a brown body liner. Other than that it's really great !
I have been doing ballet for over 10 years. Through out my years of performing I have worn many tan leotards. Most were very poorly made and the straps would break, and on top of that they had absolutely no support. However this leotard is truly amazing. First of all, it comes with both clear and tan straps with very good quality plastic at the adjustable spots. Second of all, it has a built in padded bra which offers excellent support. Third, it covers your butt all the way and the back is low enough so it doesn't show up under most costumes. Overall, I think this is a wonderful tan leotard that makes performing much more enjoyable!
Is there an actual bra built in? How supportive is the bra?
It is nearly impossible to guess at the correct size without trying this on, it is a shame you can't return this like any other leotard as long as the tags are still on it. It seems like you're trying to trick people into buying the wrong size so they're stuck with it. Literally ANY website selling swimsuits or lingerie lets you make returns.
The built in bra in this piece is only a shelf lining. The lining come with removable cup padding, therefore it can fit a wider range of sizes. Being that it is only a shelf bra, it is not meant to be as supportive as a regular bra, however provides an additional liner between the camisole and the body. - DDS Customer Service (03/25/2016)
