Fashion World Shapewear Challenge

Hello my lovies,

A few weeks ago I was asked by Fashion World if I wanted to take part in their shapewear challenge. I haven’t really worn much shapewear, only highwaisted knickers really, so I was intrigued and replied yes.

They kindly let me choose a party dress and shoes, and with them they sent me 3 different pieces of shapewear. They also sent me scorecards for each item, and I was meant to take photos wearing my party dress with each item. So that is exactly what I did, and first I will show you the scorecard images and then the final party outfit.

First up is the MAGISCULPT Retro Underbust Bodyshaper* in size 26. I really love how it looks on the model, but unfortunately it didn’t work on me at all. It looks ok, and smooths my belly like it should, but the poppers in the crotch kept on opening all the time if I moved. I think I possibly should have sized up to get rid of this issue, but I feel that then it would have been too loose in my belly area. Maybe my back is just too long for this type of shapewear, as I did have the shoulder straps on maximum lenght too. So for that reason some of the scores are so low, never knowing when the poppers would open.

Next up is the MAGISCULPT High Waist Thigh Shaper* in size 26. I did really like the effect of this shapewear, and it felt really supportive on. Unfortunately that ended when my legs started. I got extra rolls in my thighs, because the shorts were so tight and my thighs are all squishy. And this type of shapewear doesn’t work with my chosen dress either, as the shorts showed fully in the slit part of the skirt. (Sadly it isn’t visible in the photos because I have black tights on.) So those are the reasons for the low confidence score, I didn’t want them to show, and the extra rolls weren’t nice either.

Finally my favourite, MAGISCULPT Pack of 3 Control Briefs* (size 26) – and I have actually worn these before too, so happy to have a new stock ;)! These knickers almost come up to my boobs, and smooth my belly without being crazy tight. Definitely my choice of shapewear in the future too :)! Really amazing value for money too, as 3 pairs are only £24 – I wholeheartedly recommend!

But even though some of my scores were low, the final outfit turned out to be one of my favourites in a while! So yes, here’s my final party look, with that last type of shapewear underneath. I decided to accessorise with this lovely clutch I got from the goodie bag at Accessorize SS14 press day, and this most gorgeous nude lippy for my skintone. It’s from Finnish brand Lumene, who unfortunately aren’t stocked anywhere in the UK. (US readers can find Lumene at Walgreens and for example.) Mimmi brought me this lipstick when she came to visit me last month, and I’m so happy to have found this perfect nude!
