Psssst! I have a secret to share with you! Ok, it isn’t really much of a secret, because pretty much everyone who follows fashion knows this, but here it goes: You can make yourself look at least 5-10 pounds slimmer just by wearing a body shaper. Seriously. As a matter of fact, I believe undergarments are the most important thing when it comes to dressing classically and I am going to prove it in this post!
I have been wearing body shapers and slim wear for years! I remember complaining to my mother about how I was starting to get lumps and bumps in my old age and how I wished there was something that would smooth them out.
“There is,” she replied.
“It’s called a girdle”!
Um, ew. A girdle? Weren’t girdles super constricting and hideously ugly garments that we left behind sometime in the 1970s? Yes, yes we did.
But it turns out technology isn’t just our friend when it comes to computers. It has also enabled fashion companies like Jockey® to create new ways to weave and knit clothing so now we can purchase control garments that are both slimming and comfortable! Hooray for modern inventions!
I am going to show you how I took two different outfits, one casual and one fancy, and just by wearing the Jockey® Slimmers Micro Seamfree Short and the Jockey® Slimmers Hidden Panel Cami, I can go from frump to fabulous!
The first outfit is a thin sweater and a full skirt. This is pretty much my daily uniform when the weather is cold. Notice all of my problem spots: the bra makes my boobs look lumpy, my belly has a double decker muffin top, and my undies cut me in such a way that I get a lump between my hip and waist. So not glamorous.
Now check it out! Just by adding the Slimmers my body is much more lean and smooth. The problem areas have all been erased and my clothing fits so much better than before.
Isn’t that amazing! And all I did was put on Jockey® Slimmers!
Before I show you the next outfit, I want to assure you that there is nothing horribly constricting or uncomfortable about wearing body shapers. Unlike old fashioned girdles, these garments are made to move and stretch with you. When you sit down, the waistband moves with you so there is nothing cutting into your sensitive stomach area. But the result is all classic glamour, just like the starlets from the 1950s!
Moving on to the fancy outfit, I thought I would show you my sexiest and most body revealing dress. Notice the “before” picture. So not cute. There are lumps and wrinkles and side fat and though you can’t see it, I assure you the back is nothing to brag about. But after I put on the Jockey® Slimmers everything is much more streamlined and sexy!
After having three children I have a bit of a stomach pooch. But once I put on the Jockey® Slimmers Hidden Panel Cami, my belly is noticeably flatter.
The same is true of my hip bulges and muffin top! I am wearing the Jockey® Slimmers Micro Seamfree Short in the picture on the left and look how thin my hips are! But on the right I am only wearing my normal undergarments and you can see how they make my hips bulge out. Yuck!
So there you have it! Two examples of how extraordinarily flattering shapewear can be.
So if you are like me and you have some not so flattering problem areas, all you need to do is invest in a few Jockey® Slimmers and you too can get over the girdle hurdle!
Now for some fantastic news: Jockey® is giving away a prize pack of some of their amazing Jockey® Slimmers!
