PRODUCT: The BodyWrap Shapewear Bra Slip with underwire that I purchased from Ideeli.com

Soulcialite Product Review: Body Wrap Shapewear

Bodyshapers (no matter the brand) have become required wear for any woman concerned with making sure she looks absolutely flawless when she steps out in her finest.

Last night, I wore this bodyshaper (left) under my gown for the DC Mayoral Gala. And this particular product, FAILED terribly.

Now, luckily, the sins of this product were not visible to fellow celebrants. But it was evident to me every time I got up to dance.

But let’s back up. The product, which I purchased in a size Large (and if you know me, you should know I don’t need a large anything – except a handbag) was IMPOSSIBLE to get on. It’s neat in that the shoulder straps are removable, but that’s about it in the cool feature department.

I have to admit, I got it at a great price on Ideeli.com {For other shopping on ideeli, join using this link: }  http://www.ideeli.com/invite/Najeema

But I’ve gotten better wear and use from a product handed down to me from my Mother. More proof that they don’t make things like they used to.

I don’t think these products are made for people like me, with a few curves. The product was 1) difficult to put on 2) did not stay in place when I was wearing it and 3) was just as difficult to take off  as it was to put on.

So, in summary  Body Wrap Shapewear may have kept my stomach flat in my gown, but was much too uncomfortable !

Ladies, what products work well for you? Do you like Spanx, or do you rely on another brand?  Share your details and any funny stories.

    Your comments/review is the main reason I have not tried any type of body shaper. I am small and in general most would say oh you don’t “need” one. While I may not “need” one to make me look a size smaller, small women use body shapers too and I do understand the benefit of a smooth look beneath a dress especially when its formal. That being said however, my desire to be COMFORTABLE far outweighs any desire to have the “perfect fit” LOL!

    Comment from Facebook by Brandon Andrews: I cant imagine any of this being remotely comfortable or easy to get off at the end of the night. I hate surprises – body parts popping out everywhere – LOL, but I suppose I understand why you do it

    thats too bad! I have the Spanx half slip and I’ve worn it once–not too bad. I also got it on a discount. I do want a full slip, but I now know not to get this brand! appreciate the info!

    I’ve found the same ride up problem with other shapewear slips too. After trying multiple slips with no luck, I tried this one with silicone on the hem. I was worried it would make me hot or feel weird during the day, but after putting it on I didn’t notice it at all. I love the silicone stuff I saw it on camisoles and some shaping briefs to I think it’s called Wonderful Edge. You should try it.
