Shapewear Express

Happy Hump Day!

As of late, I’ve been exploring with different forms of shape wear. Growing up, I was so anti shape wear. Today, I realize that the proper shape wear can make or break a look that you’re going for.

When Diva Curves reached out tome about reviewing their latest line of shape wear, I was  a little hesitant. But after researching about them and Plus Model Mag; a magazine that has never steered me wrong, I WAS ALL IN!  

Different people have different opinions about what the function of shape wear should be. I can go over all of them BUT, my definition is plain and simple: sucks in the gut and smooths out the lumps in my butt. I’ve tried other shape wear in the past but Diva Curves takes the cake for me!

The product I am specifically reviewing is Long Black Compression Garment.

Disclaimer: This is for hardcore shaping. If you are interested in something lighter for all day wear, this isn’t for you. It will make you look smooth and firm in all the right places in your tight cocktail dress, though!

Here’s a before picture wearing a dress from Qristyl Frazier. The dress was slightly loose on me.

When I tried on the shapwear, it must have taken me in about 2 sizes and I was still able to breathe comfortably.



Can you see the difference? It does exactly what I would like shape wear to do: Suck in and Smooth Out!

Here’s what the dress looked like after:

It actually became so big that I had to pin it in the back. Even with the dress being pinned in, there’s still a flawless look. You can’t even see the under garment.

The first two times you wear it, you have to get used to it. But after you’ve worn it a couple of times, it’s a lot easier to wear.

Make sure you check out Diva Curves if you’re looking for extra hold!

Happy Shaping!

    Wow – (well fitted) shapewear certainly makes a difference. I highly encourage curvy divas to wear it. It really gives you better definition in your clothing. You look great in that dress.
