Body Wrap Shapewear – Review & Giveaway

11th November 2011

When I decided to go to Blissdom last month (can you believe it’s been a MONTH??), I knew I wanted to check out some type of shapewear, especially for the CBC event.

I’ve tried shapewear in the past – one particular brand actually (rhymes with no THANX), and hated every minute of wearing it. It was hot and it rolled where it wasn’t supposed to and it was very, very uncomfortable. I regretted every penny I spent on it, about five minutes into wearing it.

So, I heard about this Canadian company called Body Wrap Shapewear, and was extremely grateful that they sent me an item to try out during Blissdom.

First some details about Body Wrap:

  • It’s a Canadian company – WOO!
  • The product is designed without seams.
  • The product has a patented design that involves a special weaving technology.
  • The material is breathable, so it’s suitable for even warmer climates.
  • There is a REGULAR and FULL FIGURE collection.
  • There are tons of options within each collection.
I was sent the All-Inclusive (see left) in nude for my trip. I didn’t have time to even try it on before I left, so my first experience with it was only an hour or so before getting ready for the event. When I first pulled it out of the package, it looked TINY. I actually laughed out loud at how tiny it was – yes, I amuse easily. However, once I got to putting it on, it was a breeze.

I was worried about it being very difficult to pull on, from my past experience with other products, but it really wasn’t. It’s important to note that when you are putting on your Body Wrap shapewear (especially those that are bodysuits), do not pull on the bust shirring, because you might tear it. Anyway, once I pulled it on, did some jumping around in front of the mirror, and any necessary adjustments, it felt really good. I was most hesitant about feeling hot or sweaty, because I tend to feel hot ALL THE TIME (thank you hormones).

However, I have to tell you that not once during the entire evening did I feel uncomfortable wearing it. In fact soon after, I forgot I even had it on. I felt good, and didn’t have to worry about any seaming or pulling or weird bumps caused by the shapewear. It did absolutely what it promised, and I felt good in it.

I have worn the bodysuit a few times since, and still really like it. I’ve washed it (by hand) and it held up beautifully. If I decide to buy any additional shapewear in the future, I’m absolutely checking out the Body Wrap website first. The Body Wrap long-leg bodysuit with underwire retails for $88 and can be purchased in stores (check their site for locations) and online on their site.

One lucky winner will win a Body Wrap long-leg bodysuit with underwire (as seen in the photo above) in either Nude or Black!!
