Talking Shapewear with Maidenform

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Maidenform. As always, all opinions are my own.

I’ve had so many questions as to how I miraculously, appear to have no lumps, bumps or rolls in my clothes! Well, it’s not a secret or a magic trick. I’ve always invested in shapewear that slims, tucks and sucks!

If you’ve never tried shapewear you should know that it has come a long way from your grandma’s girdles. There’s so much out there now! I’ve explored several brands in the past, but today I’m talking about my experience with Maidenform!

Maidenform has a combination of shape wear pieces that will help give you a seamless look under even the most form-fitting outfits. Ultra control gives you the ultimate smoothing to your “trouble” areas.

I’m wearing the Maidenform® Curvy High Waist Thigh Slimmer along with the Torsette.   It’s perfect for this little outfit I’m wearing. This dress is super fitted and I love that about it. Not only does the shapewear smooth but it makes me feel more secure and comfortable knowing the look I was going for is being achieved!
The thigh slimmer and torsette I’m wearing is comfortable enough to be worn all day. It is my new favorite shaper. The description states that it provides “firm”control.  I love that when I wear the Curvy High Waist Thigh Slimmer I never experience any rolling down or riding up and that’s because of the Silicone back elastic.
Not sure if you can tell, but I thoroughly enjoy trying new Shapewear.  This one was a winner in my book. I’m actually wearing it right now 🙂

    I love shapewear because it helps me to look extra polished no matter the outfit. Whether its a form fitting dress, a pencil skirt, some tailored pants or a jumpsuit, the right shapewear just brings the entire look together.

    I love shapewear because it allows each and every woman to feel uniquely beautiful despite imperfections! Shapewear accentuates those natural God given curves and helps to beautifully display the curvy silhouette. It also gives women a fearless confidence to bravely enjoy fashion and individual style! Shapewear is boldly stepping out to own your look unapologetically! 🙂

    I love shapewear because it creates a great foundation for any look that I want to achieve. Like this weekend, I was in my friend’s wedding and the dress had a low back. I wanted to be smoothed out in the front and on my sides because my stomach is what people would deem a “problem area.” Oddly enough, I found the perfect shaper from maidenform! It had firm control in the front and a lower back, which allowed me to look great in the dress! Thanks for your blog post and sharing your opinions on their shapewear.

    Shapewear is a definite for me! I like it because it’s the make or break of certain outfits for me. It’s nothing worse than having or seeing a banging outfit that gets ruined because it doesn’t look good when it’s on. Especially when it’s something as simple as pulling all the curves and imperfections into some good shapewear. So, I’m definitely a believer in good shapewear that still allows you to breathe. lol #GreatBlog

    Long time fan of shapewear here! I’ve always LOVED fashion, and it’s not always kind to us larger girls, so shapewear has let me indulge in my love for fashion, try some trendy clothes and not sacrifice any support. Favorite piece is a maidenform low back bodysuit, I’ve bought it again and again, helps me to wear those low back dresses and shirts and still have great support for the “girls”.

    Even though I admire all of the body positive bloggers for their daring style choices and unashamed display of their bodies, I still have a ways to go in embracing my body image.
