Slimming Dress Review: WHBM Surplice Instantly Slimming Dress

UPDATE: This WHBM Surplice Instantly Slimming Dress has sold out. I linked to some of their other slimming items that you can try. I also found some coupons for WHBM here (I don’t get any kind of affiliate deal for sending you to this discount page. I just feel badly that it sold out!).

As a busty gal, it’s tough for me to find LBD’s that fit and make me feel comfortable. And as a shapewear enthusiast, I welcome the challenge to figure out the right kind of shapewear for the right kind of little black dress so I look and feel amazing when I step out the door. Imagine my delight when I found out that White House Black Market sells this Surplice Instantly Slimming Dress with the shapewear built right in?! When I found this dress (on sale) at White House Black Market, I was absolutely thrilled. The built-in shapewear smooths, defines your shape, and it makes you feel amazing!!

From the website:

Designed with built-in shapewear, this curve conscious dress instantly slims. Smooth stretch knit shapes and controls the sides while asymmetrical tiers create a sculptural silhouette that enhances the bust.

I did get this dress on sale, so there’s a chance it will sell out, but I just wrote this post mostly to make you aware that White House Black Market makes some dead-sexy dresses with all the shapewear built in. The fabric in this dress isn’t necessary light. I mean, when you’re building in extra compression with full-lining, you can assume it won’t be light. But, I just loved the dress the minute I put it on. No back rolls. Figure-defining seaming. An appropriate length for women over 40.

As for “Wow Factor” – I mean, come on! This dress is absolutely gorgeous. I can’t wait to try on and review more of the White House Black Market Instantly Slimming dresses. Let me know if you have one you love!
