Unless you are a size 0-2 supermodel, we can all benefit from the help provided by a support garment. Especially if you’re wearing a figure hugging dress. Or having a fat day.
I met both those criteria last Saturday so tried out the new Skweez Thigh N Mighty Shaping Thigh Short from Jill Zarin. I’ve never seen an episode of The Real Housewives of New York City but apparently she is/was on it.
Skweez Couture is her range of shape wear that comes in three control levels:
Tight skweez – for everyday wear
Tighter skweez – Comfortable extra control for where you need it most. Targeted slimming and trimming
Tightest skweez – Firm control contours your body and gives maximum compression
The range includes control briefs, slips, shorts, tights and camisoles and is available from sizes S (bust 34 – 35, waist 26.5 – 27.5 and hips 36.5 – 37.5) to 2x (bust 47.5 – 49.5, waist 41 – 43 and hips 49.5 – 51.5).
The Thigh Shaping Short is meant to smooth the tummy and sides, trim and slim thighs and hips and smooth and lift the rear. If you’re smaller than a UK 8 you probably won’t need it as I found the S a perfect fit and it didn’t crush or squeeze the life out of me. I wore them under a rather slim fitting skirt but they did a great job of holding me in in all the right places and I particularly like that they go from mid-thigh to right under the bust so you’re getting full scale coverage here. They don’t roll down when you sit and seem to make you sit up straighter which is a plus. You can wear the shorts under a dress or trousers which is why I prefer them to camisoles or slips.
They are the standard price for (good) shape wear but are currently on offer on QVC so act quickly!
