Ever since I scrunched into a Spanx contraption, years ago, I swore off shapewear. Five seconds after putting it on, the thing rolled up my thighs and down my torso, making it supremely uncomfortable to wear and creating lumps and bumps that didn’t exist before. The fabric was unbreathable and felt slippery. The whole thing was a yicky experience.
When I recently heard about a new line, called Hooked-Up Shapewear, I decided to give the mid-thigh style a try (it’s also available as a slip and a brief.) Now I’m hooked, literally and figuratively, since the piece hooks directly to my bra to create a smooth, flattering look, and can’t roll down. My muffin top won’t pop out, simply because there’s no space between my bra and the garment. The legs of the garment also stay put, and move when I do, so I don’t have to worry about bulging inner thighs.
Each garment comes with three different size hooks, letting you wear it with any bra, even strapless bras. Made of a firm, compression material, my Hooked-Up Shapewear is lightweight. I haven’t worn it on a hot day yet, but the company says it will “breathe” all day long, no matter what the season. It comes in black or nude, in sizes small to 3x, so it will flatter any body.
I can wait to put on the slightly clingy summer dress I haven’t worn in years.
