Molded cups just don't work for me. As with many plunge bras, I get gaping near the center at the top, while my breasts try to flow to the center bottom. As this would be very obvious under clothing, and padding never seems to solve the problem, this is clearly not a good fit for me.
The band is fairly tight and has a sort of silicon on it so that it can be worn strapless. There are straps, but they can be removed.
The body actually seems a bit short to me. I had some difficulty fastening it in the crotch after I'd already put on the top part, and I am not a tall person. Maybe my torso isn't that short, but I would think many people would have difficulty with the length.
This isn't really shapewear, as the body part does nothing to contain bulges.
