Hi Fashion Lovers,
Recently I had my first experience wearing shapewear. I know most people think that foundation garments are a must for any plus size woman but honestly, until recently I had never really tried any out. Whenever I felt my stomach area was getting out of control I would adjust my diet and exercise or just purchase clothing items that didn't require shapewear. I also don't like being uncomfortable and I always thought of girdles or shapewear being something that I couldn't breathe in.
When Tara Cavosie from Hooked Up Shapewear offered to send me one to try out, I was excited because I would get to try my very first shapewear and see what the hype was all about. For those of you who have never heard of Hooked up Shapewear, their patent-pending design and hooking system eliminates the space between your bra and shapewear, completely ending rolling down, back fat, muffin top and discomfort. Before wearing, connect the hooks to the back straps of your bra. With bra connected, step into the shapewear and pull up the same way you would with a one piece bathing suit. Fasten the closure of your bra...and you're done!
I decided on the high waist shaping brief shown below.

I would think that the thigh shapers would cut into your legs and be visible under certain garments so I opted for this shaper because I felt that it wouldn't constrict my leg area and that it would help smooth out my tummy under my clothing. I like my hips and thighs so I wasn't looking for anything to slim those.
After trying out Hooked up Shapewear ( I've worn it several times in the past month or so to make sure my review is not based on a one time wear) I can honestly say I will be loyal to this brand from now on. The fabric is very stretchy and not uncomfortable at all like I imagined shapewear to be. I didn't even hook the shapewear to my bra (because I'm lazy) I didn't experience it rolling down at all. I wore it with my NYE dress and it was literally undetectable underneath my clothes. As far as the fit the hold is firm but it's not a miracle product and it won't take your stomach completely away or make you look 20 pounds slimmer...what it will do it give you extra hold and smooth you out underneath your clothing. Use the measurements chart to find your correct size...don't order your normal shapewear size because her garment sizes are different from other brands.
If you are looking for a shaper that doesn't roll down, doesn't look obvious underneath your clothing, allows you to breath and have a good time without passing out, and helps keep you looking smooth....I would definitely recommend Hooked Up Shapewear and not just because they sent one to me. I honestly really loved this shaper and would have no problems purchasing one with my own money in the future when this one gets old.
