We all want to be thinner. Preferably naturally, but hey, even the most fit celebs wear shape wear under their red carpet couture. There are plenty of options on the market for undergarments that take inches off, lift everything up, and suck it all in and smooth out the lumps. But there are few that have the ability to double as a shape wear and an outfit in and of itself. What I’m talking about is this fab convert a skirt from Sassybax that you can wear in three different ways! First you can wear it as a strapless dress. I’m pretty small chested, so this fitted shape wear allows me to not have to wear a bra underneath. But please ladies, let us all learn from Brittany and put on our panties! There are some great seamless ones out there that would work great under this. Second you can wear it as a high waisted pencil skirt, and third you can wear it as a mini. Win, Win, Wining!
But aside from all the convert-a-skirt fabulousness, let’s get real here for just a second. I have to be honest, I hate buying skirts, which is why I don’t own any. I have a small waist and a rear end that has been said to rival JLo’s. So as you can imagine, it’s tough to find a skirt that doesn’t ride up when I walk, but also fits over the junk in my trunk. That being said, this little piece of heaven is on heavy rotation. Since it comes in several colors, (black being my favorite) it’s easy to incorporate into my wardrobe and I like that it’s something I can wear differently. When it’s hot, no need for a jacket, just wear it as a dress. If you have a business meeting, put on a nice blouse and a cute blazer and you’re good to go. It’s one of those items that will always fit (how often does that happen? ) and will always look great. Seriously, I think it officially falls under the ‘essentials’ category.
So you can see this on a real person and in action, I’ve done a video for you to give you an idea of how it looks on. If you’re someone who’s into shape wear, or even better, someone who’s never tried it, I highly recommend checking it out. I don’t like to feel constricted under my clothes, or in my clothes at all for that matter (I was totally a man in my last life!) so this shape wear works great and lets you move and breath at the same time. Aside from the skirt though, I also really love Sassybax’s Pretty Collection, an assortment of other shape wear items that are really beautiful, that even your man would appreciate. So if it’s time to revamp the undergarment drawer, this is a good place to start.
