Slimpressions Shapewear Review and Giveaway

*This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!*

How many of you experience the jello effect in your arms when you wave, dance, or do anything which requires you to lift your arms and move them? You know what I'm talking about...the whole "watch it wiggle. see it jiggle" effect.

It is horribly embarrassing to know that no matter how much I work out, my arm flab is staying with me for the long haul. I have tried lifting weights, power walking with weights, and other exercises that specifically target my arms. Nothing has worked yet.

Slimpressions- shapewear to slim the arms back and midriff. Now, I will admit to you that I love shapewear. In fact, I have many items of shapewear in my lingerie drawer. There's nothing wrong with a girl getting a little help from shapewear to smooth her silhouette, right? The Slimpressions have quickly become a favorite of mine.

Slimpressions are available in three styles:
Skinny Minis - ($58)


  • Adjustable spaghetti straps for a little lift when you need it
  • Soft cups for comfy chest coverage
  • Ribbed midriff for flab-u-lessTM all-around support
  • Long torso for tucking or layering Seamless torso that curves where you want it to
  • Tagless comfort
The Haves - ($72)
  • Gentle compression smoothes and shapes dreaded "arm flab"
  • Soft cups for comfy chest coverage
  • Ribbed midriff for flab-u-lessTM all-around support
  • Long torso for tucking and layering
  • Tagless comfort
  • Seamless torso that curves where you need it to
  • Mesh armpits for added breathability

The Have-Nots - ($72)



  • Gentle compression smoothes and shapes dreaded "arm flab"
  • Scooped way-below-the-neckline for superior chest promotion... B.Y.O.B (bring your own bra)
  • Ribbed midriff for flab-u-lessTM all-around support
  • Long torso for tucking and layering
  • Tagless comfort
  • Seamless torso that curves where you need it to
  • Mesh armpits for added breathability
A word of caution. When you receive your order from Slimpressions, pay attention to how you are supposed to put it on. Pulling it on over your head makes for some tricky maneuvering of your arms to get it smoothed down. (Not that I would know from experience. :) )

Slimpressions is a miracle product. When I wear mine (almost daily), I feel more confident about how I look. A bonus for me is that I forget that I am even wearing Slimpressions because it is so comfortable. Once the Slimpressions is tucked into my pants, I have no pesky roll up of material.

Slimpressions are machine washable (gentle cycle) and are available in black, white, chocolate and nude in sizes 1, 2, 3, petite, and plus. The sizes correspond to pants sizing since Slimpressions fit down over your hips.

If you are frustrated with how your clothes fit because you are in between sizes or are trying to lose weight, then Slimpressions is a product you must try! You will feel more confident about how you look, and if you're like me and you are so thrilled with how Slimpressions make you feel, you'll want to own them in every style and color available!

Slimpressions are available in fine boutiques and lingerie shops across the United States and Canada and online at the Slimpressions website.
