Yours Clothing Maidenform Shapewear review

I was recently contacted by Yours Clothing asking me if I would be interested in reviewing an item of shapewear from their Maidenform range.

On the whole I am pretty confident about my body, but like most women,  I have parts of me that I don't like. For me that is my shape. I'm all belly and tummy. 

In the past I have worn cheaper, similar items of shapewear which didn't give the desired effect.  I think this is mainly due to the fact that I struggle with is what type of shape wear I should wear. I kinda have a two bellies thing going on,  so the shorts and vest combo doesn't work.

For this review, I decided to go for the Maidenform Singlet Black all in one. The singlet has a 'V' front so it will accommodate all boob sizes. I ordered this in a 20/22 (3XL), and its pretty true to size. It didn't sag any where or feel too tight any where.

As you can see from the photos, there is definitely a difference. At the front it pulls me in and up, and smooths my belly. But I don't really think it makes any difference at the back.

Once I managed to the singlet on (it took me about five minutes!!) it was surprisingly comfortable. The straps are also fully adjustable and the back is high enough to cover my bra straps. The only issue I can see is when I needed to go to the toilet. It does have 'flaps' but I think it would be a 'I need to get fully undressed' situation every time I needed to pee.

Overall, I like this item of shapewear and I would definitely wear it again. I think it would make a huge difference when I wear a body con dress. It would definitely make me feel more comfortable. 

If I was to review more shapewear I think I would be more tempted to go for some of the shorts that sit under your boobs. 

What is your opinion on shapewear? Do you wear it?

  1. Oooo I have been looking for decent shapewear. I never seem to find the right kind of thing. I agree though having to get undressed is a nightmare. I want to try the slip dress ones xxx

    1. I have a cheap slip on and it's ok! But doesn't give as good a shape as this one! I did only get it from Primark mind!

  2. I feel like I live my life in shapewear. I don't really care about my size, but I just wish I had a smoother silhouette. No, actually, I wish I didn't care about wanting a smoother silhouette! These sort of pants are the best for me (we're a pretty similar shape) and I've heard a lot of good things about Maidenform, might just have to invest...x

    1. I love the shorts bit as I can wear them under dresses and skirts with no tights or leggings and not get chub rub! ,

  3. I have some shapewear which I got from SimplyBe which is essentially a long pair of briefs which goes right to the bottom of your bra. Works for me. I like this shapewear on you but am not sure I could deal with taking everything off every time I wanted to pee! xx

    1. If it was the one under bust one, I could just pull them down!
