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.†
