Heading into the holiday season is the perfect time to find new shapewear to rock as part of those beautiful holiday’s and New Year’s outfits. It will definitely be handy to have for all other times of the year as well. Thank you, Shapermint, for sending the three products below for me to try! I wanted to share this company with you guys because they are so good. They give a great confidence boost in any outfit you wear them with. This shapewear is comfortable, wonderful value, and Shapermint has lots of options available for you to find the right fit. As you will see below, there are many benefits to trying out Shapermint shapewear.

Trying Out Shapermint Shapewear: Confidence Boost

Shapermint is a wonderful option when you are looking for an extra confidence boost. The shorts are my favourite so far. They work perfectly for someone who already prefers wearing shorts under dresses and skirts. If you already wear shorts for that extra protection of your modesty, shapewear shorts are a perfect opportunity to gain some extra confidence. They do not give you VPL and smooth everything out, making you feel even more amazing in your favourite outfits.

It has been a while since I have owned shapewear. The ones I used to have were ill-fitting at best. I have been looking for some good ones for about six months. When I first put the shorts on under the beautiful clingy velvet gold dress I have for a Christmas party, I was stunned. They automatically give you the effect of sucking everything in and standing up straight without all the work. This look is exactly what I need. Usually, when I get dressed up and head out to a party, I consciously manage my posture and tighten my abs. After some time, the posture slips and by the end of the evening, I feel very different about my outfit decision than when I slid into it hours before. This shapewear makes outfits feel great without the extra effort or thought.

These next two images are of the gold velvet dress without shapewear under it.

Trying Out Shapermint Shapewear: Comfort

The struggle to put on shapewear is a funny one that we can all visualize. I am sure at some point, each of us has struggled alone, hopping around while pulling on tight-fitting clothes. I worried getting these garments on would be one such struggle. It really was not. It took maybe 15 seconds to put the shorts and panties on. The leggings took some extra time by their very nature, but even they took only about 30 seconds. Shapewear is meant to stretch and be form-fitting, so it might be tough to get into at first. The Shapermint ones have enough stretch to them that it wasn’t a struggle. They are also sturdy enough that they cling nicely to your body once they are on.

The next five images are of the gold dress with the high-waist shaping shorts underneath.

The shorts and panties have a snug fit around the waist and also hips. When you hold them up, you can see they are narrow at the top. This shape, along with a sticky rubber inside the waistband encourage the shapewear to stay in place rather than sliding down or bunching up. The shorts, in particular also keep your thighs from rubbing against each other.

Trying Out Shapermint Shapewear: Options

We all love options! Shapermint offers a variety of undergarments to meet everyone’s needs.  The three featured here are just a very small sample of what is available on their website. They offer a range of sizes from XS/SM to 4XL. Usually, I am somewhere between a small and medium. Using the size chart and checking measurements, I was on the high end of the XS/SM and the low end of M/L. I opted for the M/L and they are very comfortable, but the smaller size likely would have (just) worked as well. The XS/SM might have done an even better job smoothing, but I am quite happy with the fit of the ones I received.

In terms of colour options, they offer black and nude in most items, two versatile colours for pairing with different outfits. In addition to different versions of shorts and panties, Shapermint offers shaping bodysuits, multiple shaping camis, and leggings.

Trying Out Shapermint Shapewear: Quality

As we touched on above, the garments are perfectly stretchy, while still maintaining their shape. The band at the top holds the shapewear up, ensuring it stays in place. All three pieces sent to me arrived in great condition. There aren’t any errant strings hanging off them or anything and they are sewn perfectly. I appreciate that the packaging the leggings arrive in gives you some suggestions on how to get them on.

The instructions advise you to be careful with jewelry and rough or sharp edges when you are pulling them on. This will help keep them in good shape for many wears. The instructions also tell you the easiest way to get into the leggings.

The following three images are of the leggings. They are extremely comfortable and are perfect to wear under a long top. Trying Out Shapermint Shapewear: shaping leggingsTrying Out Shapermint Shapewear:LeggingsTrying Out Shapermint Shapewear: Hig-waist shaper leggingsI was amazed by how much stretch these leggings have. I will definitely wear them with long tops because they are sheerer than I am used to, but for the amount they stretch to fit, it is amazing they are still pretty opaque.

Trying Out Shapermint Shapewear: Value

Shapermint products are affordable and of great quality. They are of good value for money. The pieces I received are exactly what I need in terms of shapewear under multiple outfits. I am sure I will get the most use under dresses and skirts. The leggings I received are regular $25USD, the high waisted shaper panty I received retails for $40USD, and the shaper shorts are $45USD. In comparison with other companies that are known for quality shapewear, Shapermint’s prices are quite reasonable.
