Maidenform Makes Shapewear Sexy

When I think of shapewear, I think squeezing myself into a medical looking bandage. Sitting uncomfortably feeling like a sausage. I never understood why women would torture themselves to be so uncomfortable to maybe fit in a dress better. But shapewear has come a long way. Thanks to Klout, I received 2 shapewear pieces from Maidenform that showed me that shapewear can be sexy.

I received a FLEXEES® Comfort Devotion Everyday Control at Waist Brief in Black (retail $35). This control brief slims the tummy and prevents "muffin top" by having a high-waisted plush waistband that conforms to curves seamlessly. It is very soft and smooth to the touch. Supposedly it had a "no show" silhouette (a.k.a. no VPL) but I still felt like there were some panty lines. It also went up to my belly button which I don't consider my "natural waistline" but I think it helped control my "muffin top" better.

FLEXEES® Comfort Devotion Everyday Control Boyshort in Nude (retail $38). This item claims the same benefits as the briefs but just in a different style. I am a boyshort gal myself. One downside of this style is that bottoms role up. Probably means I need to go a size up.

I liked that I could wear these as underwear unlike other shapewear brands. While they are more coverage, I didn't feel like I was squeezing into a medical garment but sexy lingerie that happened to smooth out my stomach and hips.

What are your thoughts on shapewear?
