I recently lost a lot of weight – 75 lbs and counting. And while I’m thrilled that I can now wear clothes in styles I previously thought were only for skinny ladies (or even normal sized gals), I’m not always happy with how clothes look on me.
First, let’s say that when you’re a woman of a certain age (yes, I mean over 50), you find that your skin isn’t as tigand after a major weight loss. There’s a lot of loose and hanging skin. The belly fat might be gone, but the skin in that area didn’t rebound as I had hoped. I swear it’s a kangaroo pouch. And then there are certain body parts that just naturally start to sag a bit with age. The girls are supposed to be up high, not dipping towards the belly button. Darn you gravity!
Although I feel healthier and happier, I’d like that to also be reflected on the outside as well. Having plastic surgery on several areas to tighten up things isn’t for me. Instead I decided to do the next best and much cheaper thing – invest in great shapewear.
Because I knew I’d be wearing shapewear pieces a lot, I wanted to be able to pick from a wide variety of styles. I also wanted pieces that were high quality and would last. I also wanted to buy several different styles from the same brand, so that I had consistent sizing and always knew everything would fit the same.
After asking a few close girlfriend’s, I decided to check out Shapeez.
I loved that all 13 Shapeez back-smoothing bras were designed to keep me smooth, supported, slimmed, and comfortable all day long. I ended up picking out four different styles that I thought would be the most versatile since I was planning on wearing them all the time. I got the Tankee Long, the Tankee Slip, the Lacee Long, and the Ultimate.
It didn’t matter what I wanted to wear, Shapeez line had the right piece for the job. Each one allowed me to show off my curves and finally have confidence no matter what I was wearing. Whether I’m throwing on a t-shirt, a flirty dress (or a body-hugging elegant one) or just a blouse and jeans, I feel comfortable and know that I look great.
Wearing my Shapeez means that I have no back bulges and no visible bra lines. I’m supported and have smoothing control for my waist, tummy, hips and back. No more muffin top! It also means that I get a lot of compliments and finally how I feel on the inside is being reflected by my confident outward appearance.
