Have You Tried Shapewear Yet?

I was a little late to hop on the shapewear bandwagon. I put off buying it for a few years just because I figured it would be horribly uncomfortable and add another layer that would defeat the purpose and make me sweat.†

Boy was I wrong.†

I bought my first piece of shapewear this past summer because I needed something to wear under a fitted linen dress I bought from Banana Republic. It was perfect for that dress and eliminated any chance for panty lines. I didn't love the fabric, though, and I had trouble with silkier dresses riding up, since the fabric of the shapewear was not smooth.

Jockey recently sent me a few pieces of their shapewear collection that are also some of Rachel Zoe 's favorites.

First, you know Rachel Zoe, right? I discovered her when I stumbled across her TV show, The Rachel Zoe Project, on Bravo a few years ago. She is a professional stylist (wardrobe, not hair) and is well-known for dressing major celebrities attending award shows. It's interesting to watch the show and see all the work that goes into the look that celebrities wear at, say, the Oscars. It's never as simple as picking out a dress. The outfits are oftentimes flown in from across the world because Rachel just knows what her clients will love.†

She really knows how to dress a woman in a feminine and flattering way.†

So when she and Jockey joined up to collaborate on the "Major Must Haves" shapewear and intimates collection, I knew she would pick the best pieces.†Jockey has been around for so many years and is†a leading manufacturer of apparel products sold in major department and specialty stores around the world, so I didn't doubt that they would create a quality item that women would love.

I wore the Tummy Short under this dress to eliminate any chance of a panty line showing.†


It was so comfortable and not constraining, as I'd originally feared. And the fabric of the shapewear, which is a very smooth cotton-spandex mix, didn't stick to the dress at all. The dress hung perfectly, and I couldn't see a ridge, crease, or anything. It was breathable and much more comfortable than the other brand of shapewear I bought earlier this year.†


In addition to the Tummy Short, the other pieces I tried are also solution-based but still pretty.†The Strappy Tank is perfect for wearing under a low-cut or sheer top. I always wear a regular tank top under my shirts because I hate seeing bra lines, but I'm replacing my plain tank top with the Strappy Tank, since it's much smoother and won't ride up!†


I've learned that if you feel uncomfortable or constrained†underneath†your outfit, you won't enjoy wearing it.†These pieces marry comfort and function perfectly.†

Rachel Zoeís ìMajor Must Havesî from Jockey are available now in major retailers, Jockey outlet stores, and on Jockey.com.

    Mine is a jersey dress incident, after I'd lost a ton of weight and thought I was looking fabulous. I did not realize how clingy it was, and when I went to the ladies' room later on in the day, I realized you could see VPL and bra straps, in addition to every remaining lump on my body.

    Embarrassing on a normal day, but my boss was leading a rather large meeting, and I was sitting up front, running the presentation slides and had to walk past everyone in the room when we needed something.

    So yes, firm believe in shapewear now (pardon the pun.)

  2. I'm a yoyoer (really hate to say it!) In my best I was a size 6 (this was about 6 years ago) my worst I was a size 16 (this was well over 10 years ago) I seem to be somewhere between a size 10 to 12 lately more 12.... I'm startign to see the warning signs! So There are a ton of dresses that I have bought that just need me to "tuck" in a little. This would be pefect. I have tried shape wear in the past but it typicall rolls or bunches. And I noramlly buy it big.

    Would Love the help!!!

  3. I have never found one that wouldn't roll or bunch... and I NEVER let my husband see my try to squeeze into one! If this is more every day functional I am SOLD! :)

  5. I have one but it bunches and rolls and just doesn't fit me right. I would love to wear nice dresses but nothing fits right but I think with the right shapewear I might just be able to pull it off.

    I have a hard time with shapewear. I'm tall and not skinny (not big either, just in between) and have issues with it rolling and bunching. Now that I'm pregnant for the 3rd time, I'd love to try jockey's shapewear after I have this baby! :)

  8. I've never worn it because of your reason. I didn't want to be uncomfortable or hot. I'm sure some dresses would have looked a lot better if I had though.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I would love to try a new type of shapewear. I tried a type from Target, but it is just so uncomfortable.

    The time I most wished I was wearing shapewear was at a baby shower right after I had my daughter. My dress was flattering enough, but right after having a baby, you just need a little help :)

    I have wished I had something shapewear'ish' everytime I wear a jersey dress or jersey type top. The viscose material is so comfortable but shows every bump and bulge, even on smaller framed women. I would love to try it, and especially if Rachel Zoe created it! Thanks!

  11. I love jockey! I have their slipshorts which I bought in summertime when my legs would chaff. Yeah I have thunder thighs! Anyways they are cotton and work great and stay relatively cool too

  12. I wish I had been wearing shapewear with my bridesmaids dress in my best friends wedding. The fabric was this jersey type fabric that just clung to you in the wrong places, and I should've had some sort of shapewear over my tummy area.

  13. Are you kidding?! My whole adult life! I thought they were pointless, as well, until I invested in a pair and have loved how they smooth the bumps. I'm going to have to try the Jockey kind! Thanks for sharing!

  14. I have a little black dress that loves to ride up and cling to my undewear. Its such a cute dress, and I think I would enjoy wearing it more if I used shapewear.

  18. Just bought 2 tanktops. I wear them under shirts every day, too - and if it gives me a little shape? Yes please!

  19. I've been on the hunt for great shapewear for what seems like forever now. Everything I've tried hits in the wrong place or is terribly uncomfortable. So like others I went without in hopes it wouldn't be noticed but always felt self conscious or avoided the cute outfits instead. After having a child and losing the weight there still seems to me a smoothing issue that needs taken care of and these products sound like the perfect solution.

  20. I've never thought too much about shapewear, but I just had a baby and could use a little something to hold my stomach in until it returns back to normal. There are so many shape wear options out there, so I've been a little overwhelmed at choosing the right piece(s) and brand(s). I'll definitely have to check out hockey's collection.

  21. There are many days I wish I had shapewear - most times when I see the "back fat" on the edges of my braline. Why can't someone make a lineless bra?? :)

    Thanks for the giveaway opp! (you look great btw)

  22. I have never been able to find decent shapewear. After 3 kids thing are a bit droopy and ugly. Form fitting are totally out of the picture for me, but I want to be able to wear them. It would be nice to find "miracle' shapewear, especially since tummy tucks are so expensive!!!

  24. My fiancé and I recently got your Save the Date photos taken. We used the movie cover of Mr and Mrs Smith as the photo. It turned out super cool except the lower belly pudge that can be seen in my black dress with a white background. I am definitely interested in this shapewear for my wedding events and more!!

  32. I wish I would have been wearing shapewear at a wedding I attended this past May. I thought I looked fine in the mirror before I left the house, but seeing myself in pictures was mortifying!! I had VPL and that awesome back-fat that bulges out around your bra showing under my dress. Yeah, it was fantastic. I've put on about 40 lbs on my 5'4" frame in the past year due to a bout of depression that I'm trying to overcome, and seeing myself like that makes me feel even worse about myself. Some new shapewear might just give me a little bit of confidence until I can get better and lose this weight.

  59. Until recently, the thought of shapewear made me feel old and matronly. But after feeling uncomfortable at an open house for my husband and I in a dress that I should have worn shapewear under, I bit the bullet and decided that the next time I wanted to wear that dress, I would try shapewear. Now, I love it!

  80. I don't wear shapewear because it never fits right, and it's hot! Plus, it just seems like such a hassle. However, I would love to have something that feels good underneath some of my dresses or skirts, or even when I'm wearing jeans and a cute top to make that "mommy middle" disappear a bit.

    I wish I would have worn shapewear to a wedding I attended as a bridesmaid a few months ago... I wore another brand of shapewear and it was torture! It was an outside wedding in Florida, so imagine that! I needed shapewear because the fabric of the dress was really light and I hate panty/bra lines... I was HOT and extremely uncomfortable the entire ceremony. Thank God for AC at the reception because I was seriously considering going commando!!! That's how miserable I was!

    After being a surrogate mom and carrying 2 sets of twins and 3 single babies (2 of those kiddos are my own!) I have what i call twin skin in my abdominal region. Clothes shopping isn't very fun. I am 5'10" and weight about 150 but all of the lumps and bumps from babies are viable in tighter shirts and most skirts and dresses. I have tried shapewear and it rolls up and just isn't comfortable. I would love to try some that works well!

    This past weekend I was at a wedding and was wearing a chiffon-y shift dress with my "sausage casings" as I like to call my current shapewear, and the rough exterior of the suck-it-in shorts did not agree with the chiffon-ish material and the whole time my dress was riding up... it was a total "hey girl, your spanx are showing" moment. As long as I was still it was fine (who needs circulation anyway) but lifting my son and just plain ole walking made it difficult to keep my shorts from showing.

    I am so excited to try out this Jockey stuff though!! Sounds super soft and I can't wait to feel the blend!

    Love shapewear and have been wanting to try a tank. Really could of used a tank shapewear in the dress I wore yesterday.

  101. I honestly can't remember the last time I wish I had worn shapewear and didn't - I'm such a firm believer in it! However, I could really use some better stuff. The shorts I've been wearing I've had since I was in high school (so over 10 years)! :)

  102. Oh my goodness!!! If I had a dollar for every type of shapewear I've tried, it usually ends up being to tight or rolling down. I would love to try the new jockey shapewear! Kate you look great as usual, I look forward to starting my day by reading your blog!!!!!!! jessibordes@yahoo.com

  105. I have several "shapers" of various brands and all are miserable to wear. I usually wear them when I wear dresses, just to avoid the "vpl" (visible panty line). But more often then not I end up taking them off at lunch time and not caring about vpl anymore!! They are designed to come up under the "girls" so to flatten from bust down, but before I even get out of the closet, its already rolling down my stomach. Less then flattering and by no means comfortable.

  108. I was a bridesmaid in an outdoor wedding in August. I was wearing a chiffon dress that was sort of flowy and at the last minute I ditched the shapewear because it was so damn hot. I took one look at the pictures from that wedding and wondered why no one told me that the rear view was awful! Ugh, never again.

  111. I would use shapewear the most with dresses/skirts. I used to have a pair similiar to the Tummy Shorts, but they were SO tight that they caused a bulge in my thighs--ugh! Not attractive and totally defeated the purpose of "smoothing"! Would love to try these! :) Thanks!

  112. I love shapewear and have 1 piece. it covers the tummy and thigh area, but it is so high up on my torso that it makes it a bit difficult to take off to use the restroom. You have to hike the dress all the way up to your armpits to pull the shapewear down. I'd love a tank top. amied83(at)gmail(dot)com

  113. I've never tried it, but I have a couple of dresses that I don't wear because they are a tad clingy and I can't stand a panty line. I hope I'll get to try those of these out; I too, have been scared of shape wear. It seems so matronly.

  120. I would love to find functional- yet versatile- shapewear, that I can mix and match between every day dresses and formal dresses. For my husband's work, we have several formals and more casual ceremonies that we attend... and it'd be great to find a piece that I can mix and match, instead of needing something new for each dress. I'm a curvy lady, and that makes it even worse to not get that sausage look- and still be comfortable while erasing those embarassing and nervous moments! jthompson0930(@)gmail(dot)com

  121. I just had a baby in the middle of August, and the delivery and everything went great, and I felt pretty normal right away. Unfortunately, feeling normal does not equate to fitting into normal clothes. I would love something to help me feel a bit better about the post-baby chub.

    I would love a shapewear tank. my tanks always ride up under my shirt and i have quite a large chest so I often wear tanks under shirts to hold in the girls and to make them much more modest. Once I was wearing a wrap shirt and i didn't realize how much it had "opened" up up top and i looked down and pretty much my entire bra was showing. EMBARASSING.

    I ware another brand when I am wearing a tight dress to help flatten my tummy and to remember to suck in and sand tall when walking. I find it rolls down (from my ribs to my waist)and leaves a thick roll visible through my dress. It's awful as every time I stand up I have to roll it back up, which is awkward. did you find that with Jockey? I would love to find a shape wear that was comfortable and breathable!!

  137. Oh shapewear...my dear friend.

    There is only one time where I truly wished with all my being that I had been wearing shapewear, and that was when I was in my friends wedding on a HOT August day. I didn't need shapewear to cover any lines, or keep things in place, I just needed it for my legs, to keep them from chafing. raw. skin. I didn't think it would be as bad but the next day anything that touched my legs burned and I learned my lesson. Shapewear is my friend.

The only downside to this otherwise amazing dress is that because I am long wasted, the waist line comes up higher than I would want.

  147. I used to wear shapewear when I did events for roller derby, it was mainly tank tops. During games I would wear the shorts under my compression pants, but that was a big mistake....silky shorts under lycra was not pretty. This past summer I tried a body slimmer for a dress and it just made me look worse in a dress. I figured I'm just not meant for a body shaper.

  152. I had a black, silk top for presentation at work. I have also had the problem of silk tops riding up when I where a tank underneath, and because I didn't want that to happen during this important meeting I left the undertank out. Everything looked fine at my house, but under the brigher office lights my top was see-through! Fail!

    I would love to try shapewear that solves all these issues.

  174. I love that you've found us a good tank because I really trust your opinion! I need shape wear every time I grocery shop. Seriously! I have a long torso, so it's hard to get stuff from top shelves without showing some skin. And then there's the problem with the back side if I get things from the bottom shelf. So a nice, LONG, smoothing tank could really change my life... or at least my cooking. :)

    THANKS FOR THE CHANCE!

  175. My daughter graduated from college last year. I bought my dress several months ahead so as not to have to worry at the last minute.
