Rago Pink and Black Waist Cincher, Style 721

My apologies for not posting in awhile. The semester is wrapping up at school, and things have been hectic. I checked my profile viewing stats and saw that I've had 117 reads. So, if you're reading this, thanks so much, and, if you like it, please tell your friends! :-)

Above is the Rago Pink and Black Waist Cincher #721, black satin body with pink flat sewn seams, black and pink lace front, 13 front hook-and-eye closures, 4 satin, adjustable garters with pink decorative bows at the top and metal clasps, and flexible spiral boning, available in sizes S-6X, $36-40.00 or £27.95 per each.

Despite my stockings addiction, I'm not super femme. I don't like a lot of lace, pastels, pink, frills, ruffles, or any o fthat kind of frou-frou. Therefore, I was surprised when I got this item in the mail and immediately fell in love with it. It may not even read as all that "girly" to many of you, but it's definitely a step away from the usual for me. And trust me when I say it looks even better than the photo. The lace front, for example, is beautiful. Rago has a reputation for well-crafted, retro undergarments utilizing vintage patterns and this certainly does not disappoint. Upon closer inspection, it seems to be extremely well-constructed.

However, I have one significant complaint. Whether it's minor or major depends on what you wear your waist cinchers for. My primary issue is that this cincher doesn't cinch at all. I bought a size medium, which is what I usually wear, and there's at least an inch of extra material on the sides. I don't feel pulled in, smoothed, or shaped at all when I'm wearing this; I only feel like I'm wearing a pretty piece of lingerie. If you want this cincher to actually cinch, it might be good to buy one size down from your usual size, but if you just want something nice to hold up your stockings, then go ahead and choose your regular size.

Available to purchase at Amazon, Dollhouse Bettie, and HerRoom.

    I really like your comments!

    I found Rago's regular waist cincher, the one that comes in all black or all white, cinches quite well.

    The Rago cinchers with the colored lace front feel more like fashion garments than real support garments.

    hi, I dont know if you will read this comment, but i hae only started reading your blog today. And i am surprised i didn't come across it before. I own rago cinchers and garterbelts amongst many other shapewear. Reading so many of your posts, i see that you often find that cinchers dont cinch. Do you own any that do and can you recommend them?

    My Rago cincher actually does in fact cinch if only a little. It tends to keep my waist at 25. However my waist only ranges from 24-26 so its not much of a cinch. When i am at my lowest weight in the summer, i dont wear it because its too warm. The cincher i own is made for waist size up to 26 so i suppose for the girls who are a waist size 26 it pulls in.

    Another thing i have noticed is dif ppl have diff elasticity to their skin. Mine is very elastic so it squeeze easily. However, i have met ppl with very firm skin even if they are plump. Their skin is like rock. Smooth and soft to the touch but hard when you hit it. Skin like this tends not to squeeze too easily and the only way they achieve a cinch is to get a much smaller cincher or a corset.
