Tried it Tuesday – Slimpressions

I am going to try to bring you an in-depth review of a product every Tuesday.  My product today is  Slimpressions.  This is an undergarment shapewear that is supposed to make you look slimmer.  Yay!  There are 3 differrent Slimpressions to choose from: Skinny Minis - This is a camisole that gives you upper body control ($58 The Haves - This one slims your arms (you know…the flab that flaps when you wave), upper body, and pushes your ta-ta’s up to give you a little more cleavage($72) The Have-Nots - This slims your upper arms, upper body but scoops down below your ta-ta’s to let the real deal show for themselves($72) When my package arrived from Slimpressions I was super excited!

When my package arrived from Slimpressions I was super excited! I ripped it open and pulled out 3 of the littlest pieces of fabric that I have seen since my girls were teeny-tiny. Uh-oh…how was I going to fit into one of these? Maddie laughed at the thought! They looked really short too…I hate wearing a cami that keeps riding up. I looked them over, read the directions - you have to step in to them, then slide them up. Seriously? I checked the size…yep, they sent the right size. Here goes nothing….I wiggled the Skinny Mini up and adjusted it into place. Guess what? It fit perfectly! Nice and long (it actually went down to my behind) and it felt like it was holding everything into place.  The true test would be wearing it for a while. Yesterday I put on the Have-Not to wear. This one has sleeves that go down to your elbows. I put it on and wondered if I would really be comfortable in it all day long. I liked that it felt like it was making me stand up straighter, but was worried that it would feel constricting after a while. I pulled my jeans on over it and was floored…they were very loose. The Slimpression actually made my jeans one size too big!! I’m not kidding…seriously. After wearing it for about an hour I actually forgot that I had it on and never gave it a second thought…until I received a compliment. I had two people ask me if I had lost weight, and one person tell me that my boobs looked bigger!! Again, seriously. Can you believe it? I’m sold! They are seamless, have mesh armpits, and truly hide your muffin-top.  I couldn’t even figure out where it put mine…I expected a little roll to pop out of the bottom of it…nope, it was gone! Here are pictures of them - The Halves, The Have-Not, and the Skinny Mini.  This is good stuff.

I LOVE my Slimpressions, and I love that they are made by moms, for moms!  PLUS - wait for it…they are comfy and stay put! I'm not kidding, Slimpressions is a winner!” – Jenny R.

The Shapewear Evolution

As with many industries, the shapewear business has evolved.  Bye, bye girdles!  (And thank goodness!)  The denim industry, for example, began in the 18th century with a need for a durable fabric for laborers. In the 19th century, Levi Strauss began a wholesale business, answering the need for strong clothes for gold miners. The denim industry has expanded over the years into a staple for westerners, rebels, hippies and fashionistas. Hundreds of companies have launched and succeeded as a result. ‘The old mass market has segmented, fragmented, shattered into a multitude of mini, micro and niche markets’* and the same thing has happened in shapewear.  Gone are the days of the girdle and gone are the days of only one shapewear company.  ...
As with many industries, the shapewear business has evolved.  Bye, bye girdles!  (And thank goodness!)  The denim industry, for example, began in the 18th century with a need for a durable fabric for laborers. In the 19th century, Levi Strauss began a wholesale business, answering the need for strong clothes for gold miners. The denim industry has expanded over the years into a staple for westerners, rebels, hippies and fashionistas. Hundreds of companies have launched and succeeded as a result. ‘The old mass market has segmented, fragmented, shattered into a multitude of mini, micro and niche markets’* and the same thing has happened in shapewear.  Gone are the days of the girdle and gone are the days of only one shapewear company.  Today's woman longs for more.
Many shapewear companies focus their designs and marketing efforts on the special occasion. Whether it’s a wedding, reunion or red carpet event, these shapers were designed for women with just a few pounds to hide knowing they will only be worn for a few hours.  There's certainly a need there.
 
Often referred to as “Real Shapewear for Real Women”, Slimpressions is for women who have lost/need to lose fifteen pounds or more and would like an all-day solution to camouflage their "extra".   That's right Barbie...Slimpressions is NOT for you.
 
At Slimpressions, we focus on looking good and feeling good every day.  We treat every day as a special occassion and believe that women have the right to shine Monday through Sunday, not just on Saturday nights.  Our shapewear features moderate compression so you can BREATHE and still look good and feel confident all day, every day.
 
What makes our designs so comfortable? We use a patented technology to create a seamless torso. Unlike traditional “cut and sew” compression garments that force every body regardless of their shape into a consistent mold/pattern, our seamless designs conform to EVERY body shape and style. So whether you’re a woman with an hour glass, pear, apple, spoon, etc. body style, Slimpressions confidencewear works for you. (We don’t subscribe to the “stuffing a round peg into a square hole” approach. We think too highly of things like oxygen.)  Further, our body shapers are longer than traditional shapewear styles. They were designed to sit on the hips to work with the woman’s body to stay in place and minimize untimely roll-ups common in other brands.
 
Just as women have a variety of jeans in their closets, women now have a variety of body slimming solutions to choose from.  Shapewear is like jewelry, as I always say.  Not every piece works with every outfit...or for every occasion.  Treat yourself to Slimpressions when you want to look and feel your best whether your going to the grocery store or presenting the quarterly report.  Confidencewear, indeed.
