Here’s my confession; I have never worn shapewear. It is a trend that has become a ‘thing’, meaning that women everywhere put on this garment as though they are brushing their teeth.
Known to control, flatter and help create a beautiful silhouette, shapewear is now hidden underneath most celebrity dresses on the red carpet.
I was kindly gifted a hi-waist brief and slip by one of the leaders in this industry, Miraclesuit.
About the brand
Miraclesuit are known for their gorgeous swimwear. Exclusively, they use an innovative fabric Miratex which delivers three times the control of ordinary swimwear fabrics, without inner linings and constructive control panels.
The company itself thrives on innovation and offers both comfort and support in lingerie and swim, that’s also fashion-forward.
Their goal is to make women feel confident. When they design, they emphasise styles that will highlight your curves and hide areas that you may wish not to flaunt.
I in particular, like that they have created a bra that has underwires built into a foam bra which means that you don’t get any bulky wires that can poke through after a few washes.
Design and feel
What surprised me the most is how much I like the material. I was expecting something very embarrassing and hello Bridget Jones, but the fabric is flattering and the Nylon makes it look appealing.
While it wouldn’t be a first option on a date, I wouldn’t shy away from letting a potential partner see it.
In addition to the design being elegant, the shapewear is quite thin. It didn’t feel bulky or as though I was wearing a frumpy underwear set.
Miraclesuit has done an amazing job at putting together pieces that are aesthetically pleasing.
Once I let go of my doubt that the slip and hi-waist brief might be showing through, I began to feel at ease.
Both items stay in place. Not once have I worn them and been concerned with the need to readjust.
As shapewear is suppose to flatter, there is a slight pull sensation. It was almost as though my body decided to breathe in and hold the pose.
There is a confidence gained from putting on a product that you know is helping to make you appear at your best.
Over the Christmas period, my stomach did bloat and when I first put on the shapewear, immediately I felt better.
I haven’t tried other brands to compare, or be aware of what most deliver on the market. On the contrary, I do know that Miraclesuit deliver in all the specifications that it notes.
As a preference, I prefer the hi-waist brief instead of the slip. The slip would be more appropriate for a long dress, whereas the briefs seem wearable for most of my wardrobe.
Neither had me wishing to take either of. In actual fact, I believe they help my posture. When I put them on, I naturally think about my physique and pay attention to how I’m sitting.
Would I recommend Miraclesuit shapewear?
People assume that shapewear is purely to compose a slimmer body. You think – try and hide your stomach.
Although a great benefit, it’s important to realise that it can act as good tailoring. I have certain well-fitted dresses and if my diet has not been 100% clean, those dresses will not be my first choice.
With the Miraclesuit garments, I can put those dresses on happily.
My entire perception has altered and I understand now why shapewear is significant to women of all shapes and sizes. I would happily recommend.
You can purchase Miraclesuit in the UK from places such as Amazon, Very, John Lewis, Figleaves.com and JD Williams. Their swimwear is stocked at Next.
Do you wear or have you considered shapewear before?
