Stilettos and Diapers: Muffin top, Rachel Zoe and Shapewear: Things that make you say bananas.

Muffin top, Rachel Zoe and Shapewear: Things that make you say bananas.


Photobucket
I've never worn shapewear. I've never really needed to wear it. And honestly? I've never thought that feeling like I needed an oxygen tank during my night on the town was worth looking skinnier.

But then I became a mom of 2. And that mom pooch got a little, errr, looser. So I bought a shapewear tank, wore it once, and thought I was going to die. Literally. Not the Rachel Zoe kind of die, either. Yes, I looked flatter. No, it wasn't worth it.

But I decided to give shapewear another try. I mean, anything that Rachel Zoe calls a "Major Must Have" is worth giving a shot.

Jockey and Rachel Zoe partnered to create this stylish, comfortable, solution-based apparel that has Rachel's style and sophistication.

I was sent an assortment of shapewear and intimates from Rachel Zoe's "Major Must Haves" from Jockey line. The first thing I grabbed was the Strappy Tank. Check out the patented three-panel design.
Photobucket
I figured it would be best to try it with my everyday wear, and I was very impressed with the results.
Photobucket
The top "befores" show some muffin lovin', and the inevitable mom pooch. But the bottom "afters" show how the shapewear creates smooth lines and holds everything in place. It even made my shirt lay flat.

But the best part? It was comfortable. Like, surprisingly comfortable. But just to make sure, I wore it all day. And I didn't die. I didn't even hurt. It actually felt good and supportive.

Oh, and no oxygen tank required.

Then there is the Tummy Short. It rocks major all-day curve control so you can wear it under a pencil skirt or this season's hot trend, the high-waisted pant. They have a two-ply tummy panel and a single-ply leg opening. I love that the leg is fitted enough to make my thighs look slimmer but without binding in a way that creates that lovely "I'm wearing shapewear" leg bulge. 
Photobucket
The Slip Shaper is amazing. LBD approved. The top is a stretch cotton bodice just like the tank. It is loose enough to wear with your own bra and never squeezes to make you look like you have a uniboob. Just looking at the top, you'd think it was your favorite Jockey tee.
Photobucket
Slips in general have a tendency to ride up, but not this one. There's a subtle silicone strip at the hem that keeps it in place. I felt like everything was so smooth and flat when I put the Slip Shaper on that I kinda wanted to walk the runway in it. If only Jockey could get me some longer legs...
Photobucket
In addition to the amazing line of shapewear, Rachel Zoe's "Major Must Haves" from Jockey line also includes intimates. The bikinis, thongs, hipsters, boyshorts and tanks in fashion-forward colors and prints have that same perfect fit that the shapewear offers. The bottoms are a "cheeky" cut with a very modern silhouette. Nothing was bunching, squishing or riding. Just comfortable and well-fitted.
Photobucket
Rachel Zoe's "Major Must Haves" from Jockey are available now in major retailers, Jockey outlet stores, and on Jockey.com.

This line is sure to fit your needs without compromising comfort or style. Whether you have a day full of meetings, a night on the town, or just want to feel and look your best on a daily basis, you won't be disappointed.

When you are getting together that perfect outfit, remember: what's underneath is just as important!

  7. I wish I was wearing shapewear on our cruise to the Bahamas! I had the cutest dress on and even though my husband kept telling me that I looked amazing all I kept focusing on was the baby pooch from my 1 year old. I was so uncomfortable with how I felt I looked but hubby loved it so I kept it on! That dress was rockin' and I would love to feel like a skinny-minnie in it!

  8. i could've used this stuff right after having my babies!!

  9. I wish I was wearing shapewear the year after giving birth. I didn't lose the weight very easily.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I could've used this a couple months after giving birth and had TWO back-to-back weddings to be in *sigh* but my mom pooch could still use it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I also could have used something a month after giving birth...I went to my cousin's wedding and wore the baggiest dress I could find to hide the baby weight. Looking back at pictures makes me wish I had some help to keep it all in!! :)

  14. I have sort of skinny jeans, but right now am about 5 lbs. too much for them to look good. So, this would be a good time to wear shapewear!

  16. I would love to try some shapewear. I bounced back after Trevor, but am "lumpy" after Gavin. We were at a wedding this past weekend and sadly, the dress didnt fit me like it did before.

    ReplyDelete
  17. When I attended my sisters graduation, the dress I wore could have used it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. After two kids I can use it too and lets face it, not the healthiest person in the world. Maybe this year i wont have to punch my Hubs cousin @ Thanksgiving for asking me in front of everyone "are you pregnant?!"
    Gotta find these pronto!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I wish I had one on while meeting a handful of my husband 'girl' friends from high school, 12+ years later.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I wish I had been wearing shape wear when I was the maid of honor and my BFF's wedding. I needed something to make my mom pouch more smoother!!

  22. I could use shape wear just about any time!! All these skinny jeans I own hit right about where my mom pooch is!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I REALLY could use shape wear every day to hide my muffin tops for my daily wears. It would make them look more flatter in my tops!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really could have used some shapewear when we dedicated our new baby!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You look amazing! I REALLY wish I would have been wearing these at my brothers wedding 2 months post baby. Or like every single day now?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Honestly I wish I was wearing shapewear everyday. I am a mommy to 5 kids and have a 4 month old. So I know all too well the mommy pooch and muffin top...ha. I have tried many things and most never work or are so uncomfortable you can't breath. I would LOVE to try this one! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I wish I wore shapewear when I was postpartum :) just couldn't find any comfortable enough, so these sound great!

    ReplyDelete
  28. 1. I just realized we have the SAME birthday. That is WILD!
    2. I was just at a blogger fashion event where the speaker was raving about this new line by Zoe. I would love to win!! I wished I'd had some today when I put on my jeans and long sleeve t with a cute snap wrap and boots. The t didn't fit how I wanted it to. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I remember the day I was the matron of honor at my friends' very casual backyard vows. It was a beautiful day, but I felt very self-conscious of how I looked in my clothes. I picked something a little frumpy and too big because I didn't think I looked good enough in my 'nice' clothes. Mayb I should give these shapers a try!

  30. Around the holiday season when it's tough to keep my weight down.

  34. I wish I had shapewear last Fall, a couple of months after I had my son. I needed to buy the next size up in jeans. If I had shapewear I could have continued to wear my regular size.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh man. I really could use a shapewear for daily outing. I hate that I am having hard time getting rid of my muffin tops. They are DEFINITELY NOT CUTE!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wish I had shapewear for my sister in law's wedding this summer. After having my second baby, I found it to be much harder to lose weight and tone up. I felt like a stuffed sausage in the wrong casing. lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. Every day (and night!). While I can "hide" the muffin top look under layers during the winter, it's harder during summer!

    Let's face it, multiple kids nearly always leaves us Moms with saggy bits ...

    ReplyDelete
  38. I went to a business dinner a few years back and the dress I wore, definitely needed shapewear.
    Didn't look too bad, but I was not comfortable the entire night.

  42. I could have used a Shapewear slip this past summer under a dress I wore to a wedding. The nude,hugging slip would have looked much nicer than the white slip I was wearing

  63. After having a stroke & not being able to walk for many months, I would have died...oops...bad choice of words here! I would have LOVED to wear this shapewear. A double whammie! Hey! Look at me now! I can walk again, all by myself, I'm not falling down AND I look hot! What could be better than that?

  64. I wish I was wearing shapewear on a recent picture at a wedding recepeion. My dress would have looked better on me had I wore shapewear.

  65. I once went to a wedding and wore a very slinky dress. I was pretty young and fit at the time but shapewear certainly would have enhanced my assets.

  87. So...ummm..yeah the one major time I wished I had been wearing shapewear was when I was out shopping with my Mom about two weeks after my son was born. It was my first time out since the baby and my mom was treating me to a couple new things. I saw a girl that I went to high school with and she actually touched my "belly" and said "When's your baby due" Um...yeah I could have died right there..

  107. It's that time of year when we all get out and go places we don't necessarily get to at other times of the year -- and I, for one, tend to need more, um, SUPPORT this year. For some reason or another. Perhaps Jockey shapewear is just what I be needin'.
