Does Pockets and Bows wear Shape Wear?

Hey guys! I have been asked numerous times on my tumblr page if I wear shape wear and I don't usually. The only time that you will find me wearing shape-wear is if I'm going some place really fancy and I have to wear something formal or a cocktail dress, which is rare.

With that said I have used spanx and all over shapers in the past and I definitely prefer the spanx shorts if I am going to wear shape-wear at all. Something like this:


However, while browsing through the women's lingerie section of the Simply Yours website, I found these knickers that I really like, which is really just a high waisted panty. They are so cute and go along with that pin up look that is really in for undergarments and swim suits right now. I'm sure they will be much more comfortable and still give a bit of control in the tummy area.


So let me know, do any of you ladies wear shape-wear? Or is it just too much of a hassle?

  1. I stopped wearing shape-wear when I realized that even if I could eliminate a kg people would still realize I'm fat - and that's okay:=)

  2. for me, shapewear is not about whether or not i'm fat (something that will only change with losing weight), but more about the way clothes "fall" on me, and smoothing out lumps and bumps. no shapewear is going to magically make you appear 100 lbs. lighter, but it does, in my opinion, make your clothes look neater, and the long line shorts help with thigh rubbing under dresses.

  4. I love shapewear, sometimes it could get expensive. It's kind of hard to wear shapewear in the summer, because it gets so hot. Shapewear just makes your clothes fit better and I love it!!!!

  6. Yes I do wear shapewear and honestly it can be a hassle getting into at first, but I feel so much better about how my clothes fit. I think no matter what shape or size you are any shape wear can benefit b/c it smooths the look of my clothes

  7. I have been wearing shapewear everyday since high school. At first it was a bit uncomfortable, but I got use to it. I love the effect it gives me, wearing a corset type girdle gives me more of a hourglass fiqure.

  8. i love shapewear.... the high waisted shorts like others have said help with chafing in the summer. i wear control top stockings in the cooler months so i don't bother much then. i find the high waisted panty to be a bit bothersome as they have a deeper, more visible panty line look. unlessssss someone points me to one with smoother lines ;)
