This binder is definitely made for someone who has a skinny torso. I have a big stomach and it rolls up when I sit down and bend. The binding is good but not compared to my Ultimate Binder Tank (also from Underworks). The Ultimate Binder Tank has two layers of binding material in the front (which is probably why it's so expensive), while this one has only one layer of binding material. It still binds like my stretched binder tank though, which I thought was interesting. This is a good binder if you need a cheap one but if you don't have a budget, I recommend the binder tank. I ordered a large and it's pretty tight on me at 168 lbs. It goes about an inch below my ribs at 5'3.78". This is a great binder for the price. It got here in 4 days, just on time.
