I used to think shapewear was:

  • just for special occasions
  • uncomfortable, binding pieces
  • going to leave red marks all over my body
  • for older women

Boy, was I wrong!

Shapewear has changed my life. My shapewear:

  • smooths out my bumps
  • offers light support which reduces back pain
  • doesn’t leave marks and doesn’t make me feel like I might faint
  • is actually pretty! With lace trim! And I’m not embarrassed when my husband sees it.

Now my underwear drawer has grown. Not only in the number of items but in the size of each piece. I still have my sexy, lacy bottoms to match my bras, but for everyday I often default to items that cover my whole mid-section and go right up to my bra!

Aristelle has everyday shapewear pieces by Simone Perele, PrimaDonna and Yummie Tummie. Prices range from $26 to $89.
