Review | Taking Shape Shapewear
So, I used to be a big fan of shape wear, if I was wearing a skirt or dress that was even the slightest bit clingy the shorts had to go on. I also thought they were a good way to prevent the chub rub in the summer, a bit warm but it worked.
When I got an email to from Taking Shape informing me that they had released a shape wear range I was pretty keen to give it another go.
They kindly sent me the High Waist Smoothing Shorts* to review. When I first saw them I was a little scared, I've never had a pair of shape shorts that I haven't had to fight to get into, you know when you feel like you need an extra pair of hands to pull them up, and then an extra pair of lungs to breathe when you sit down!
These shorts were easy to pull on, no problems at all. They are made from 86% Nylon, 14% Elastane which means they smooth over the areas you might not be comfortable with without being too tight. There are no awful bands around the waist or legs so you get a nice smooth look under clothes.
I wore them under a dress to our works Christmas party and it was fine, even after a few martinis I managed to get them off with ease with only a slight wobble, due to the wonky floor of course..ahem!
I'm wearing the XL which is true to size (22/24). You can find the shorts and other shape wear here.
