A couple months ago I agreed to review a shape wear piece by Leonisa, a brand that is relatively well known and has been advertised on a few day time TV talk shows.
Let me be honest with you – I don’t do shape wear! I don’t think I need it, I don’t believe in it, and all the other 101 reasons why I think it’s bogus!
First of all, it’s extremely uncomfortable. When I first took the Truly Invisible Bodysuit Shaper (shown in the images above) out of the packaging, I didn’t think I was going to manage and get into it. Here is a tip – remove all the jewelry and put your hair in a bun! Make sure you apply makeup afterwards, as there will be a lot of huffing and puffing.
Going to the bathroom is a pain! As well as breathing, sitting, walking and all the rest!
The bra portion wasn’t padded, which was a big letdown (even though it looks like that in the photos)! I haven’t worn a non-padded bra since 2008! A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
Maybe I should’ve gone for a different type of piece, something like this – for that occasional muffin top fix…
Well, I guess I’ll be smarter next time!
There are situations when one can make shapewear work! I think it’s okay wearing it for up to 4 hours, but no more! Say you have an event, and that naked dress you have been dying to wear! Then go for it!
In the end, shapewear is not for me! What I like is eating healthy and working out! That’s the best shape wear for me! What about you? Do you do shapewear?
PS. I was provided an item for review in exchange for my honest opinion. Well it’s as honest as it can get!
