Vedette Shapewear-5 winners review/giveaway Closed!

review/giveaway

Vedette is a company that offers shapewear for all sizes of women. This shapewear is not only used to provide support but it can also be used as lingerie. Vedette designers have developed the most complete line of body shapers, waist cinchers, derriere enhancers, compression garments, and post-surgery girdles in the industry to help keep you comfortable and supported.

When Vedette asked me to review one of their shapewear suits I was excited. At 50 years of age and after having a hysterectomy 20 years ago, my stomach could definitely use some serious support.  I tried the size 40 Style 107 -the Evonne.  I really like this style because it looks like a whole piece bathing suit.  I like how it lifts what needs lifting and holds in all my extra "baggage." This may sound strange but after wearing it for an hour or so it seemed like I could breathe better.  And my stomach really looked flatter which made me look better in jeans.  I love how I look and feel while wearing this bodyshaper.

Vedette has grown to be one of the most well-respected shapewear brands in the industry. They bring you the best quality products. They also keep a well stocked assortment of their products to ensure you that your products will be available and delivered at a fast rate.

To help you choose which item from Vedette that  you actually need, they have a pull-down menu that lists the areas you need help in.  Ex: hips, stomach, derriere, ect....


Black and white are mostly the common shades of sheer tops trending this 2011. Make sure that whatever style of undergarment you pick to wear beneath a sheer piece, it is either the same as your skin tone, or near the color of the top you’re wearing.  Let’s say if you’re wearing a sheer black top, make sure you pair it with a black or dark gray bra.  Now if you opt to wear a nude or white sheer blouse, be sure you are wearing either nude or white bra.
Vedette offers many different styles of shapewear.  They have the compression garment with long sleeves and it goes to the knees.  There are compression bras, waist cinchers, that come as a 2 pc., that lifts the bust, prevents roll-ups and corrects the posture.  The Capri panty shapewear is made with hosiery fabric with natural hevea front panel that flattens your stomach and shapes your thighs and hips.  You may like a 2 pc. or a all-in one.  To the knees or the panty style.  Whatever your need is Vedette is sure to sell it.


I have been wearing my bodysuit shapewear for 1 week and I can already tell that my stomach is not near as flabby as before I began wearing the shapewear.
I would definetly recommend anyone looking for shapewear to visit the Vedette website and check out all the many styles they have to offer.  I know you will love what you purchase and I bet you will be happy with the outcome.
