Shapewear Review: Maidenform Firm Control Ultimate Instant Slimmer Open Bust Body Shaper

From the manufacturer: Ideal for body-hugging garments like cocktail dresses and gowns, Maidenform’s Ultimate Instant Slimmer Open Bust Body Shaper helps smooth and shape your tummy, waist and back for a smooth, sexy looking appearance. The Wear Your Own Bra feature allows you to wear your favorite bra for any wearing occasion.

I got this for a form-fitting cocktail dress that I wore to my company holiday party. And, let me just say, it really, really, worked to suck everything in and smooth everything out.

I ended up wearing it with panty hose because this is Massachusetts and it’s very cold. I want to point out that I ended up wearing the bodyshaper on the bottom, then the pantyhose on top, and then the dress on top of it. Many, many champagne drinks were had that night and I figured that the last thing I wanted to do was snap and unsnap the crotch. I actually slipped off my dress, tugged at the straps of the body shaper, and then pulled the whole thing down to use the potty. Sorry for the TMI, but sometimes, you just have to have a visual.

As you can see from the photos, it helped with tummy shaping, but it also eliminated back rolls. If you have side-boob, this is a good way to help with that…and also…I found it kind of pushed my breasts together for a very flattering effect. Check out my breasts in this before & after. A bit different, right?
