So I just recieved my pink cincher with my slim gel and I put it on and I thought I would need help but I didn't. It feels so comfortable. Never had a waist trainer look so flattering on me. I weigh 135 now and 31 inches around waist I will be writing another review in a few weeks to see if I lost some inches. I felt the slim gel work instantly it's tingling alot so it's working it's magic under there lol.
