When you think about your wedding day you probably won't think of shape wear straight away but shape wear can dramatically change how your dress looks. It can smooth out your figure, hold in any problem areas and make you feel more confident.
''Body Wrap Bride is a shapewear collection exclusively designed to smooth and shape all image conscious brides on their special day. The bridal collection features distinctive cuts and beautiful lace panelling to slim strategic points on the body. The bridal line is designed to enhance natural curves and smooth the silhouette for that once-in-a-lifetime big day.
How Does it Work?
The panelling within each piece allows for areas to be either slimmed down or naturally lifted. Cleverly designed ‘lifting zones’ in the derriere and softer pockets ensure the buttocks are not flattened, while the tummy and waist areas house a firmer panel to help flatten and slim. Fabrics are breathable and provide moisture management so the bride won’t feel constricted or uncomfortable.''
I was lucky enough to be sent the Bodywrap Bridal slip in ivory to review. I've never worn shape wear before and to be honest I was nervous. My pre pregnancy body isn't the same as it was before I got pregnant and I do still feel a little less confident than I used to particularly around my stomach area. Don't get me wrong it isn't huge but it isn't as toned as it could be and I am to blame for this, I haven't done anything to try help it.
I tried the shape wear on the same night I received it. I was excited to see how much difference it made. My first impression was that it was tight, not too tight that I couldn't breathe but tighter than anything I wear. Next I tried a dress on over the top. The first thing I noticed from that was how smoothly the dress went on. It glided over the top of the shape wear perfectly. Making it easier to fasten and just more comfortable. Obviously there are items of clothing that you can't wear over the top of the slip because you can see it underneath.
It gave me support in all the right places and held my figure well. I was going to put a picture of me wearing the slip but I don't think you want to see that! So here is a lovely model wearing the slip instead.
Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to wear the Body Wrap Bridal for my actual wedding. Although the straps come off which is great, the back of the shape wear is the same height as a normal bra strap and my wedding dress actually comes lower than a regular bra strap. So if you are wanting a slip for your wedding think about your dress design and if you will actually be able to wear it underneath. You can of course pick from different styles and don't have to have a full body slip.
I also got a size small in the Body Wrap and to be honest the cups are a little big on me. I must admit that I don't have much to fill them but it is a little noticeable under clothes. I'm sure if you had a bigger bust than me it would be fine.
Overall I think the Body Wrap Bridal is a fabulous product and would be a great addition to anyone's weddings that felt they needed that little bit more support than normal underwear can give you. The prices for the Body Wrap are below...
High Waist Thong £35.95
High Waist Panty £41.95
High Waist Long Leg £46.95
