I’ve been a long time wearer/lover of Spanx legwear. They just do things for my legs, backside, and tummy. They hide, they lift, and they most definitely shape! It’s almost gotten to the point I won’t buy other brands, and at $18-$40 a pop (depending on whether you are investing in hose or tights), that’s saying something!
That said, I’ve also tried other Spanx products, like the slimming shorts and the slimming tank. Oddly, I wasn’t a big fan of either. The shorts most certainly slimmed my thighs, but at the expense of bulges in other places. It was also quite noticeable underneath the dress I wore them with. The tank? Well, I couldn’t breathe. It also, like other control tanks I’ve tried, bunched up at the bottom as I walked and I found the constant pulling and tugging exhausting! (Though I did just happen to notice while browsing their website they have new and “slimproved” designs out…..hmmmm)
I recently was recently contacted by the gals from NUDWEAR, a UK based company specialising in shaping under garments.
NUDWEAR was founded by best friends Astrid Montalta and Sammy Ivanko and the duo was inspired when searching for their bridal lingerie, discovering the lingerie and shapewear in the market left much to be desired. The two set out to create a brand of desirable products suited not only for special occasions, but also for every day wear.
The girls asked if they could send over a parcel to me, including a few products to try out. A girl can never have too many clothes, especially ones that shape and slim, so I kindly agreed after a bit of research into the company itself Inside my parcel was a slimming tank, and a few other bits to be written about later, so stay tuned for that!
I was definitely surprised when I put the tank on. Though it was tight, I could breathe and was actually comfortable. The tank was cut just right with wide straps and a scoop neckline so that it can be worn on its own, or layered underneath a sweater or blouse.
The tank helped even out that unsightly bra bulge and controlled the midsection nicely as well. I layered a button down blouse over it and I realised the tank did wonders in the chest area as my blouse had a tendency to gape a bit at the button on the chest. The tank evens out the chest area without sacrificing your lift, and that is a big deal, right gals? All great things thus far!
The true test came on my morning commute and throughout my day. SUCCESS! This tank didn’t ride up, didn’t bunch, and definitely didn’t scrunch! I have a twenty-two minute walk to work and the thing didn’t budge. Even throughout the day as I was up and down in the office, it stayed firmly in place and worked it’s magic all day long.
I got two more wears out of it before it had stretched enough to need a wash. I was worried about it keeping it’s shape post laundering, but to date I’ve had no issues and I’m loving the shapeliness of this tank!
If you have argued and battled tank after tank, this one is definitely worth the investment! I’ll definitely be adding another one to my collection soon as I need a white one in addition to the black one.
