Shape Wear

Hi Ladies,

My dress is not form fitting its much more a-line shape. Nonetheless I want to use shape wear to look and feel my absolute best. The dress does not have a super low back but it does drop below my bra strap line.

I am looking for something that comes just below my rib cage or right to my rib cage, preferably "short" cut so my legs don't get irritated, and most importantly one that does not roll down.

I keep coming across SKIMS and it looks like it could be a great product for a great price ($36) but I saw a couple reviews that state that it rolls down. Please provide your favorites that might work for me.

Thanks in advance!!!A39zQhvJvt7JXGg_faxdcEIGNbhAfAgKAmLHFMtS

    Awesome I will check out shapermint. I failed to mention that SKIMS was also sold out of my size in all light colors and only had black.

    Your an MVP their customer service seems amazing ( return/exchange policy!!Smiley smile) and they have exactly what I envisioned. THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    I was between shapermint and honeylove. I decided to go with honeylove because you don't have to mess with pulling them down and then back up to pee. They are more expensive $99 on sale for $89 but I think well worth it. I need a little extra something to look and feel my best because I'm under pressure to lose about 5-10 pounds so my dress isn't as tight. Still fits just tight.

    Thank you so much for that info. Also I see that you arent getting married until next year you can totally lose the 5- 10 pounds. In the last 3 months I've lost 25 pounds. The picture I posted above is prior to the weight loss.

    Hi Crystal,

    I got mine from Venus. I have ordered regular clothes from them and they are true to size for me. I'm a thin girl and sometime things don't always fit me the way I would like if I just get it off the rack in a store. I was nervous at first to order clothes online for the same reason but was beyond pleasantly surprised to find that not only are the clothes nice, they actually fit me perfectly. And the prices are great too.

    My virtual BFF Pinterest has recommended the following:

    These are the best shapewear pieces to buy:

    Hope these help!

    Wow congratulations! That's amazing. And I sure hope so it's been stressful so that hasn't helped. It just seems like it's coming so fast!

    Don't waste your money on SKIMS. I got the right size and kept rolling down on me. I bought some shapermint shape wear and its so much more comfortable.

    Seriously, prior to covid and even up til August I was like wedding planning is soo much fun its easy you just have to be decisive. Then our venue changed their mind (in September) and I lowkey lost my mind. We went into "cancel plan A and all vendors that wont move to another venue and plan a whole other wedding within a month" mode. Now we are back to excited. This is what I get for saying it was fun and easy hahaha

    Interesting, the pricing is so dramatically different. But I think you are right in that i heard Honeylove doesn't have to be taken off for the bathroom. my concern with Honeylove was that it comes too high for my dress. Thank you for the advice.
