Bespoke Corsetry: Review of Vollers Made-to-Measure Corset

31 Aug

There is nothing like getting a lingerie item made to your own specific measurements: it feels like the ultimate luxury, having something so close to your body fit like a dream. So you can imagine my delight when the legendary Vollers Corset Company contacted me and asked if I wanted to review a corset from their selection. Of course I did! Knowing I wouldn’t fit into the measurements of their regular overbust corsets, we immediately decided to have a corset made to my measurements specifically. I was over the moon! After a couple of weeks of making my corset and sending it to me in a lovely luxurious wrapping, I finally placed my paws on this beautiful garment. As corsets take time to test, I have owned this piece for a few months now but I hope I can be a bit more thorough with my review because of that.

The Design: I wished for something similar to the Eye Candy corset as it was a classic sweetheart neckline with a Jessica Rabbit-ish look to it! I had seen a couple of other bloggers wearing similar styles and had fallen head over heels in love with it. I also really wanted an overbust corset, as that was something quite impossible for me when buying corsets off-the-rack – so it was kind of a once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity. I would say that the Eye Candy style is more of a quarter-bust style as it does NOT cover even half of my bust. I know my bust is quite big to be contained in an overbust corset, but it is also a matter of breast shape; my bust has a lot of fullness on the top part of it (ie above the areola) which means there will be naturally more overflow with these sort of corset styles.

I had no idea what colour my corset would be, but I wished for something golden, as I thought is was a great colour for both spring and autumn and would fit perfectly under a little black or red dress during the Christmas party season. The Vollers team decided to make my wish come true and paired the gold with a classic black. The laces are black to be as modest as possible and the golden grommets are carefully hidden with an extra fabric trim at the front. The curve of the corset is quite impressive which is always a huge upside when it comes to corsets – however, if you want something extra curvy and decide to go for bespoke Vollers corset, I would advice you to give the design team a bit smaller waist measurement than you actually have. This will ensure you can tight-lace and even waist train in your corset and won’t have to change your corset size too soon.

The lower part of the corset is not my favourite style though – the rounded “hem” makes my belly look more rounded than it is and does not flatter my body type the best way. I would have probably needed something a bit more straight/horizontal line to fit my body – now the hem of the corset curves upwards at the sides which is not ideal on my body, as I would love some compression and definition especially on my upper hip/lower belly area.

The Fit: The corset I received features 16 steel bones, ten panels , a waist tape and five busk closures to close it at the front. As I knew better with this corset, it being my second, I knew that I had to close it at the front starting from the middle busk closures and then working my way up/down from there. This corset was a lot easier to close and open compared to the True Corset which I reviewed here – I think that might have had something to do with the Vollers corset being an inch or so bigger at the waist, which made it easier to loosen it up before trying to put it on. As this corset is made to my very own measurements, I could choose the size between regular corsets sizes 24 and 26, which made the waist size absolutely perfect for me. I only wear corsets for special occasions, so I won’t be closing the back anytime soon, but as this is the right size for me, I can still tighten the corset the way it won’t show any skin under the modesty panel.

My biggest gripe with this corset, as with the previous one from True Corset as well, is that  it is undoubtedly too short for me. I have an extremely long torso that would need a suuuuper longline-style corset, which the Vollers corset unfortunately is not. This is a preference thing though – some like their corsets short and sweet, whereas I like mine to go seamlessly across my whole upper body. I feel like the shortness of the corset is pushing my middle body fat towards my lower belly and thus creating more bulk there, which is not the most desirable affect, especially with wiggle-style dresses. Also, it gives me less boob coverage when being so short, as I can’t hike the corset up more and risking my lower body having even less coverage.

The first and foremost question we need to ask with this piece is however, does it support my boobs? Well, in short, it really does. If you scroll down to the last picture of this review, you can see me wearing the corset under my Collectif Dolores dress without a bra on. The corset gives me a very Marie Antoinette like shape – kind of like a shelf-boob – but there is no discomfort with the bust flopping around or moving painfully inside my dress. The cups are big enough to hold all the volume of my lower breasts and there are no unsightly bulges to make people guess I have crammed myself into a too-small OTR corset. It doesn’t flatten me out either but makes my waist and bust ratio look deliciously curvy.

These pics have been taken a few months apart – this means there may be some slight changes to my body and how the corset looks on it.

Comfort: This one is always a bit tricky for me when it comes to reviewing corsets – some people claim good corsets are never uncomfortable and you will be able to breathe pretty normally with one on. To be honest, this is not the case with me. Even with a bespoke corset, I have hard time wearing it for several hours as it constricts my breathing, movement and eating habits. Disclaimer: don’t eat a normal warm meal when wearing a corset! It will instantly make you feel sick and you will need to take your corset off, especially if you are a beginner. As someone who lost her corset virginity only a few months ago, I cannot say for sure if the comfiness aspect will improve over months of wear, but I am pretty sure me and corsets are not meant to be full-time lovers. I also think this is a lot due to my ribcage shape which is very protruding and thus fights the shape of the corset. However, bones are flexible and will get used to corseting over time.

The materials of my Vollers corset are definitely premium quality and feel good against a bare skin – I know you are supposed to wear a liner or a cami of some kind to prevent your corset from greasing and getting sweaty, but I don’t wear them for a full day ever, so I am not too concerned about that. With my Vollers corset, I can clearly see that the quality is overall supreme, and it is lovingly stitched to the very last detail to make its wearer feel extra special.

Overall, my experience with the Vollers bespoke service was excellent, even though I forgot to mention a few details that would have helped them to create an even better fitting garment for my body type per se. If you are looking to have something made just for you, make sure to tell them each detail that they would need to take into consideration when it comes to your corset. Bespoke corsets cost always a bit more than their OTR equivalents, so make sure that the makers have all the information they need – this will ensure that at the end, you will have a perfect luxury product for your special occasions.

If you are looking to invest in a reasonably priced, well-made made-to-measure or off-the-rack corset, I would be happy to recommend Vollers for both purposes and budgets. You can find their look book here and  get an idea what would suit your body the best way. To have a corset especially made for you, you can contact Vollers by email. However, they do offer most of their corsets in sizes 18″-38″ which is a very impressive size range on its own. Have you ever considered buying a bespoke corset? After this review, would you be tempted to? Let me know in the comments! xx

My First Corset! – Review of a Playgirl “Under the Cup Support Corset Cincher”

6 Jul

This review is a bit overdue for multiple reasons – the first one being my illness a couple of weeks back when I was in a horrible flu with the side effect of an ear infection and ferocious cough that prevented me from wearing the corset in the first place. It is absolutely not true that you cannot breath in a corset but breaking in a new one when being sick? I didn’t want to take the chance, I was coughing my lungs out already. Another reason for postponing this review was my fear of writing my very first corset review – corsets are not as familiar to me as bras which is why I wanted a proper testing period for this product but also time to do some heavy research. After much reading about corsets and wearing one now and then, I can give my thoughts on being a first time corset wearer and also how this Playgirl waist cincher suited my purposes of a first-time corset.

When True Corset asked if I wanted to try something from their selection, it was a tough choice and I wanted to pick something suitable for my body – something quite long, full-bust appropriate and rather basic yet curvy. I know some of the off-the-rack corsets can be a bit too straight for my body and purposes, so I tried to pick something with a bit more curve, yet nothing with hip panels per se as I don’t have that prominent hips that would fill such a corset. I also thought about the colour for a while – on one hand I love bright colours, on the other a black or a white corset could be combined with most lingerie and would still look nice. As I stumbled across the “Under the Cup Support Corset Cincher” and it claimed to be one of the best options for us larger busted ladies, I decided to go for it.

DSC_0008DSC_0026
Note: These pics have been taken after just a couple of wears and I have NOT tightlaced the corset and it has NOT been properly “broken in”. I  could have laced it in much tighter but that is not the best decision when wearing the corset for the first few times.

The Corset Cincher is 12″ long at the back and 11″ long at the front, so I knew that it would be a bit too short for me, even though being on the longer side of OTR corsets. I have a freakishly long torso, about 12-13″ and thus it’s hard to find a corset that would reach as far down on my body as I would like to. This particular corset was meant to cover all of the skin below your bra, but for me it did not unfortunately do that, because of my own body proportions. There are ten panels in the corset and twelve steel bones, eight spiral and four flat. Grommets are completely black which means the style is very discreet and classic. The materials are pretty basic too: the outer layer of the corset is thick taffeta and the inner layer is made out of 100% cotton twill. There is also a waist tape inside the corset, which apparently is a sign of a rather good construction.

Breaking in a corset takes quite a bit of time and it is not recommended to wear your first corset for long periods of time. I started with only a couple of hours and now have proceeded to wear the corset up to 7-8 hours a day. I am not waist training as I don’t have time and patience for it, but I would like the gap of my corset to close so that there wouldn’t be any skin showing at the back. This will take some regular wear so I hope to be wearing this corset as much as I can over the next couple of months. I went for a size 24 which is meant for a 28-29″ waist just like mine, but I do have to say that the sizing with this particular corset feels small. Side note: put it on in the morning before you are all bloated! I would say that in my experience (which is quite little though!), this feels more like a 22. The rule of thumb is to go for about 4″ smaller size than your actual waist measurement, especially if you are waist training. More experienced corset-wearers can go even smaller!

DSC_0041DSC_0038DSC_0036Putting on a corset is another task that can be a bit tricky when you are just a beginner – I for example thought it would be best to try to close the grommets from up to down or vice versa but in fact, the easiest way to close them is to start from the middle grommets and then work your way up and down. To even close the grommets you have to loosen up the laces of your corset quite a bit, depending on how small you went with the size. When you get the hang of it and especially if you have a friend to help you, it is not an impossible task to do! To read more about practical advice on corsets, please take a look at the What Katie Did corset guide.

I happen to own two corsets at the moment and have enjoyed wearing them a lot when I have the chance to do so. What I noticed particularly about the Playgirl corset  is that it’s quite comfortable for a first corset. The long back supports my bust area quite nicely, it makes me sit straight and is comfy to wear even for several hours! There are some things to remember when you are wearing a corset though: you can’t eat as much, you won’t be able to move your middle the way you are used to, so even taking a wee in the bathroom can be a hilarious task to do. When you get used to it, it will be worth the hassle though!

DSC_0033DSC_0004DSC_0017
When it comes to the appearance of the corset, I do like the curviness level of it but there are still some things that I need practice with – for example estimating how tight I can lace the whole thing. As you can see, in the pics there is a significant amount of space at the lower portion of the corset meaning it stands out a bit. I haven’t even tried to tighten the corset without Mr 2COP’s help, so I am pretty much on his mercy when it comes to getting the fit right. It’s trial and error, but I am sure to get it right sometime in the future. I promise to take you some progress pics and post them on Insta! Also, if you would like a progress post here on my experience of wearing corsets after breaking them in properly, I would be happy to write about that as well.

If you would like to try this Playgirl Under the Cup Corset Cincher, please take a look at the True Corset site, here. This particular corset comes in sizes 20-36 and costs $75 – they also have great deals on selected corsets so check that option out as well! Also, please let me know in the comments if you wear corsets and what are your tips and tricks for wearing them – I would love to know! xx

Rago Shapewear Review: Styles 6207 & 821

12 Jun

Let’s face it: most of us women have worn or will wear shapewear at some point of our lives. Whether it’s what makes you more comfortable in a slinky dress for a night out or perhaps a more formal occasion, most of us like to keep our figures smooth when wearing something body-contouring. I don’t wear a ton of shapewear but when I do, I have quite a few demands for it: it has to be rather comfy, suck my tummy in a bit and keep things smooth while covering VPLs and VBOs. I had been looking for something for my special occasions to wear under my most tight-fitting pinup dresses and BAM, I stumbled upon Rago Shaperwear at Salon International de la Lingerie. We chatted with their chairman Justin and he instantly asked us whether we would like to write about Rago. After a while I was holding my first Rago pieces in my hands and trying to squeeze myself into the tiniest pieces of shapewear I had ever seen!

DSC_0013DSC_0014DSC_0020DSC_0024
This is how the garments actually look like. Not the prettiest of underwear but then again, they are supposed to be functional rather than pretty!

For some general information on Rago, I must tell you that they are an old company, founded just after the WW II in 1945. The designs are still quite similar to what they used to be in the 50’s so I would almost call Rago a vintage shapewear reproduction brand. They do have some more modern pieces as well, but I think the styles they are known for are the good old-fashioned girdles that suck the tummy in and give you curves for days. The sizing is a bit ‘vintage’ as well, with the garments being a bit on the smaller side (waist size 28″ is a Medium like with most reproduction brands like PUG) and the is fit very curvy indeed. Rago recommends that you go up a size if your waist-hip difference is more than 10″. The size range is amazing, going up to 8X with some of their garments.

As a rebel, I simply could not obey the 10″ sizing rule, of course. My waist is 28-29 and my hips 39-40 which means there is a good 11″ between them. This did not cause any trouble however, so I could after all squeeze myself into the garments. However, if you prefer lighter shaping and a more comfortable feeling, I would recommend going up a size if you are between waist sizes. As Justin told me, most first-time Rago customers may go up a size at first but when they return, they may even prefer a size down as they are used to the tight grip of the garments.

Rago prides itself in being one of the few brands on the market that claim to make you look slimmer by a whole dress size – this is up to debate of course and depends entirely on how much squish you have on your body. With mine, there’s not a ton of it (I do definitely have some but not loads and loads) meaning the reduction is not super obvious but the garments still give me a nice curve and do some smoothing, depending on which style I go for.

DSC_0009DSC_0011DSC_0010
This is what the 821 Waist Cincher looks like under clothing. The Serena gown is by Collectif and a size UK 10.

The one that I have been wearing a lot is the 821 Waist Cincher. By waist cincher I do NOT mean a true corset cincher nor a waist trainer, but a a sturdy shapewear garment that has some boning and a lot of stretch to it. The 821 has a ton of hook and eye closures at the front which can be quite a task to close at first – it takes a bit of practice and some sweat to get the thing closed but if I can do it, anyone can. For me the 821 was a tiny bit too short as I am long-torsoed (for reference, 12-13″ from under bust to the end of lower belly)  but I still don’t think it looks bad under my clothing. I would prefer it to be a bit longer though, so I would avoid any possible back bulges and a leaner look on the lower belly area.

To say the least, the 821 cincher really works – I have not seen anything like it before and for creating killer curves it’s the best non-real-corset waist cincher I have found so far. However, you need to remember that shapewear NEVER reduces your size really – it just pushes the fat to different places, meaning with the 821 it pushed my squish from my waist upwards and downwards. If you already have some softness to your belly like I do, it may create a small bump on your belly, meaning it will not give you the flattest tummy on earth. It’s not meant to do so either – waist cinchers are by definition shapewear that is supposed to make your waist appear smaller and hips wider. If you have a significant amount of fluff on your tummy and prefer to have it smoothed out, I would suggest the 6207 for this purpose.

DSC_0102DSC_0120DSC_0124
Me wearing the Rago 6207 High-Waist Leg Shaper with my Pinup Girl Clothing “Niagara” dress in size Medium.

The 6207 offers even more firm shaping than the 821 – the name of the product is a High-Waist Leg Shaper. The product features garters, an open gusset and is meant for intense butt and thigh shaping. For me, this is not really my so called “problem area” as I don’t gain weight on my thighs and hips but they are quite firm already. However, I do like a flattening effect on my tummy when it comes to skin-tight dresses so for that purpose, the 6207 is a great product. This is probably the most shaping you will ever get out of a shapewear product unless you are willing to go for items that have zippers – those suckers are even firmer!

The 6207 is quite hard to get on and it’s not a pretty sight when you try to do so – it’s a whole lot of wiggling and sweating. However, when you get it on, it looks quite nice under pencil dresses and skirts! It does not offer the same curvy appearance but almost flattens me out a bit from all angles, but for a tummy flattening effect and an overall smooth silhouette it’s the best shapewear you can find, I assure you.

I have to note though that my body has changed a tiny between the pics above. The first ones with the cincher have been taken in April and the ones with the 6207 were taken yesterday – with a body that hasn’t hit the gym in two weeks because I have been ill. Technically I have been sick with flu for three weeks now and was stupid enough to go to the gym after the first week and hence, the whole thing got even worse. This means there may have been some minor changes to my figure as I haven’t been able to train my muscles and have tried to been as non-active as possible to regain my health.

When it comes to comfort, the Rago pieces are not something I would wear for a whole day and night, not at least now. I suspect though that they might need some getting used to, as I haven’t worn super firm shapewear before. The waist cincher is something I prefer for the comfort of my skin: it doesn’t have any silicone on it, which makes it much more comfortable to wear than the 6207. The silicone strips of the 6207 make my thighs itch after a while, which is not something I can stand for a whole night of partying. However, I do have a dry sensitive skin with the occasional open wound here and there, so please bare that in mind when considering if this would be a suitable product for you.

So does Rago hold its promise of making me look a dress size smaller? I would say not for me, but it’s not what I aim for with my shapewear. I want something that will smooth me out, make me sit straight at a formal event and make my dresses look the best they can on me. This is definitely something that can be achieved with both of these pieces, although they are different in function and purpose. If you are a bigger lady than me, I would imagine they might even reduce your dress size! If you would like to get your hands on Rago, some of the best places to buy them would probably be Secrets in Lace, American Shapewear and Classic Shapewear. The 821 waist cincher sets you back at around $40 and the 2607 Leg Shaper at around $60 and they come with an amazing size range of S-8X.

Lingerie Review + Discount Code: Going Strapless with Freya Deco Shape in 30GG

20 Feb

A couple of months ago when I was preparing myself for Christmas, I got my hands on a Collectif dress called Penny – a pretty strapless number that required a pretty strapless bra to go underneath it. Unfortunately I did not have a well-fitting strapless at the moment and I was doomed to go by my Debenhams 30FF bra, two cup sizes too small and a bit too tight as well. When Clara Olivia contacted me and asked if I wanted to review a couple of sets from them, I knew what I had to do – opt for something practical that I actually needed. I decided to go for the Freya “Deco Shape Strapless” which is a beautiful longline bra and a high-waisted panty combo. Here’s how I liked the set…

DSC_0144 DSC_0146
The Design: As longline bras in my size are quite rare, I was happy to see Freya making this style up to GG. It’s not prefect yet, but a good start to branching out to a different kind of styling – even though longlines are quite hard to make in bigger cup sizes. The Deco Shape is a versatile collection with multiple options for your bra and panties – whether it’s a regular plunge or a strapless, Freya has it covered. I chose to go for the ivory strapless longline as it was something that I found the most practical. The colour is great for spring and summer and I really like the rococo-style blush print as well – it makes the style a bit more interesting.

The whole look of the bra is very seamless – at least as seamless as a longline can ever be. The cups are moulded which is a practical choice for such a great bradrobe staple. The shape the bra creates is also decent – the cups are very rounded but not super uplifted – this could be a good bra for a more modest look. The cups also come quite high up so take that into account if your choice of dress/shirt is very low-cut.

DSC_0131 DSC_0141
Fit: Even though this style goes only up to GG, I must say the 30GG was a pretty good choice of size for me. I was warned off that the cups would come up quite large so I wasn’t too worried about being squashed by the bra. However, the shape is probably not the best one for me: there is a significant amount of space in the bottom of the cups and a little bulging at the top as the bra cuts into my fuller upper breast tissue. I think this style would be better for someone with a little less filling at the top – if you are more full-on-bottom and have shallower breast tissue than me, give this style a try.

The band of the Deco Shape Longline is also a bit tighter than your regular Deco plunge bra. I would say this is a more true 30-band as I measure 31″ under my bust and felt the band was very tight on me. I managed to close it, but it was definitely something that someone with a 29″ underbust measurement would do fine with. The band features six hooks and eyes meaning it is a sturdy little number. Also I didn’t experience the band flipping up like with some other longlines which is a great upside for me at least. There is additional boning though which might not be suitable for everyone – with me it was fine though and I didn’t experience any chafing whatsoever. As an additional practical feature, there are two places you can attach your straps if you wish to, which makes this bra great for someone who’s either extra petite or broad-shouldered.

DSC_0136 DSC_0156 DSC_0191
Comfort: When it comes to comfort, I am always a bit “meh” with longlines – some find them extremely comfy but I usually don’t. I had a very bad experience with Fauve “Bronte” in the past which always makes me hesitant to try longlines. Gladly I wasn’t left with a torture machine this time! The strapless is a bit too tight in the band for my preference but then again, it should hold up my tits when taking on the dance floor on a night out. The bra did its job even though being a slightly wrong shape for me and it stayed put during my try-out period.

I wanted to give the Deco Shape high-waisted briefs a go too, so I opted for them in size Small. As Freya panties run a bit on the looser side, this was definitely the right size. To be honest, I am absolutely in love with the panties! They are so comfy, they shape me lightly and leave no sight of VPL, which is definitely a bonus. So my piece of advice to you? Get the panties as well with this set!

If you would like to order your own strapless or something else from Clara Olivia, they have kindly offered my readers a discount code to get 20% off your order. Use the code 2cakes20 at the checkout to claim your discount! The Deco Shape comes in bra sizes 28-38 B-GG (£40) and the high-waisted panties in XS-XXL (£20) and you can get it at Clara Olivia both in ivory and black. PS. Remember to take part in my blogiversary giveaways which are closing in only couple of days!

Suomeksi: Hyvien olkaimettomien rintsikoiden löytäminen voi olla vaikeaa, kun koko ylittää D-kupin. Olinkin mielissäni, kun brittiläinen alusvaateverkkokauppa Clara Olivia lähetti minulle Freyan kulttimallin Decon olkaimettomana versiona pari kuukautta sitten – nyt pääsisin kokeilmaan jotain painovoimaa uhkaavaa! Olin kuullut että olkaimeton Deco Shape on kupeiltaan hieman isohko, joten valitsin kookseni 65GG:n ja alushousuista koon S.

Deco Shape on malliltaan ns. longline, eli mallin rinnanalusnauha on leveämpi kuin normaaleissa rintsikoissa. Longline onkin hyvä vaihtoehto, mikäli haluaa ekstratukea – juuri sitä mitä olkaimettomien rintsikoiden kanssa todella tarvitaan. Ympärysnauha onkin näissä rintsikoissa todella napakka ja tuntuu tukevan rintoja hyvin myös ilman olkaimia. Kupit puolestaan olivat mitoitukseltaan reiluhkot, joten näistä saattaa riittää normaalia pienempi kuppi. Itse kuitenkin törmäsin istuvuusongelmiin kuppien mallin kanssa – tuntui ettei muotoonprässätty kuppi oikein istunut yläpainotteisille rinnoilleni ja kupin alaosaan puolestaan jäin rutkasti tyhjää tilaa. Näin kuitenkin käy joskus ja tästäkin huolimatta Deco Shape on ihan kelpo vaihtoehto niille harvoille kerroille, kun jotain olkaimetonta käytän!

Jos omat olkaimettomat liivit kiinnostavat, tarjoaa Clara Olivia lukijoilleni nyt alennuskoodin, jolla saa mukavat 20 % pois koko tilauksesta. Käytä siis koodia 2cakes20 kassalla, niin lompakkosi kevenee hieman vähemmän 😉 Kokoja Deco Shapesta löytyy GG-kuppiin asti ja housuista XXL:n ja alennuskoodin kanssa koko pompsi kustantaa 48 puntaa. Mukavaa shoppailua sinne ruudun toiselle puolelle 😉 PS. Muistakaahan käydä osallistumassa vielä blogiarvontoihin, enää pari päivää jäljellä!

Shapewear Innovators – Introducing Figgahugga

6 Jun

I have recently been looking for cute and fun shapewear that would suit my taste and hold in my cookie pouch a little. I am pretty comfortable with my body but when wearing tight-fitting clothing I wanna feel more secure either with slimming high-waisted panties or a slip dress. I would love to try some “real” shapewear brands in the future so I’m kind of doing my research now before opting for something.

 I came across a brand called Figgahugga on Twitter and instantly thought this brand is exactly what I’m looking for – a fresh young brand that offers a huge range of rainbow colours in a form of a slip dress. The best thing about the Figgahugga? Their slimming dress can also be worn as outerwear, which makes it a great choice for girls who want a simple flattering summer dress that can be dressed up and down. 

Image
Just look at them! I think the concept is really cool and this kind of shapewear looks exactly the kind that young customers would love. It’s also really affordable since Figgahugga costs you only £49,99. Just comparing the price to many other similar shapewear dresses, I really feel the Figgahugga crew has kept their young customer in mind. This is what the brand has to say about their product:

Figgahugga is a totally new shapewear brand designed specifically for younger women, that both looks and performs unlike anything that’s currently on the market. Figgahugga is entirely British (both material sourced and manufactured in Britain) which, we believe, makes us the only all British shapewear label on the market.  

The idea behind Figgahugga came from the rising number of young, often slimmer women, who are going out for the evening without eating, for fear of developing the dreaded “food baby” – and often suffering as a consequence. We thought it was time they could eat, drink and still look and feel great.

The majority of shapewear wearers are often larger women, however, there are as many slim women out there who have as many body issues.  At Figgahugga, we want to keep young girls safe, by encouraging them to eat, stay healthy and look good.

Better Performance.

Figgahuggas are double layered to offer a stronger hold and more comfort than anything out there. And because they have been designed with younger women in mind, they are infused with Feran Ice to wick away moisture and keep you cool on the dance floor.

 Better Looks.

Unlike most shapewear, Figgahuggas have been designed to be seen. So they come in multiple bright colours to complement your wardrobe. What’s more, they look just like normal dresses – so if your boyfriend or flatmate walked in on you getting changed, they would have no idea you were wearing shapewear! Here are some of the ways you can wear a Figgahugga.”

Image
I love Figgahugga’s colours – my personal favourites would be yellow and neon pink! Unfortunately Figgahugga is such a new brand that they have only one model that’s available now with the existing model being designed more for core sizes when it comes to breast size. However, as I contacted Figgahugga and as they told me that they haven’t YET released a full-bust suitable model, there is one coming very soon! I love that this kind of new brand wants to branch out to full-bust appropriate designs as well as vest and a longer version of the original design. I think this shows a lot of dedication to improve their product and that they really want to take into account all of their possible customers. 

The new models including the full-bust one should be launched in the next six months so keep your eyes peeled for them on Figgahugga’s facebook page. If you are a little more small-busted, I would suggest taking part of Lingerie Blog’s comp in which you can win yourself your very own Figgahugga!

How do you like FIggahugga? Which colour is your favourite? 😉 xx
