Shapewear that helps you shape up and suck it in from Leonisa, Spanx and Secret!

The world of shapewear is a fascinating place - it makes me wonder why women waste so much time and energy trying to lose weight - there seems to be a foundation garment out there to correct just about any figure flaw you may (think you) have!

Leonisa Shapewear has an impressive array of products including a line of full control compression body shapers to make any part of you look smaller and help you fit into that hideous bridesmaid's dress that your bridezilla purposely ordered one size too small so that she would look skinnier!

I tried one out and it made me look great, reducing my waist, stomach and hips - but the one downside to wearing something like this in the hot weather that we have been having here lately - it makes you sweat like crazy underneath - the material is moisture wicking so it wasn't uncomfortable but  I lost about 5 pounds in water weight - I'm just going to call this a double win, 5 pounds is 5 pounds!  The back is high to smooth out your back fat and it also improves your posture.  All styles are avilable in XS-XXL in nude and black.  Not a bad deal for 50 bucks!  You can check out the whole range at

Spanx has a line called Skinny Britches that can't help but amuse me.  This is the Skinny Britches short - it comes in 11 colours and costs around $45 - which could get expensive as you are meant to layer them depending on how much compression you want:  one to slim, two to shape and three to transform - I'm almost afraid to ask, transform into what?!  It firms tummy, hips, thighs and rear.  Best not to wear this if you think you might get lucky on a date, can you imagine what he would say as he watched you peel off three layers of underwear!

Or you could just do it the easy way - with a trip to the drugstore for a pair of Secret Slimmers pantyhose.  Although if you haven't bought a pair of pantyhose lately, you might be amazed at the selection!  There are styles that will shape your tummy, thighs, waist and even lift up your butt!  With prices from $8.95-$14.50 you really can't go wrong!

  2. Which is the Secret Slimmer have you tried? Been wanting Spanx for so long but I still couldn't justify sixty bucks for it!

  3. The thigh and tummy shaper from the picture. It's about $12 I think - it doesn't suck everything in quite as much as the other two - but considering the price does a good job!

    Best, Lisamarie
