Shapeeze bra review – Silkee Short
I was asked to try and review the Shapeez bra. I was thrilled and waited for my delivery with baited breath.
I wanted to know more about the bra and did some research. Shapeez founder, Staci Berner could not find a full supportive bra that offered a smooth back appearance and so she created it herself. It comes in a variety of styles.
The door rang as I opened and there stood clad in leathers wearing a helmet, a gorgeous courier holding a black bag by the string handle pointing towards me.
He was cute but even more gorgeous was the beautifully packaged gift from Shapeez. I was so happy package had arrived and I decided to pause and savor the moment – I smiled so much I felt really spoilt.
I was a tad anxious about receiving the bra, as I am a big girl and used to thick sports bras and granny bras – the limits are my own – I go for comfort. I opened the package and oooh la la the bra was indeed beautiful, well designed and soft to the touch. It has a detailed lace front, it looked and felt soft yet firm in composition. The bra has what I will call high quality vest/ tank top back you could both see and feel the quality. It looked stylish and comfortable.
Content: Shapeez bras are made from breathable cool-tex microfiber that takes moisture from the body to keep wearers dry and comfortable all throughout the day. The Silkee is designed for full busted / full figured women larger bust sizes. The patented design eliminates visible bra lines, and back bulges, while providing superior breast support and slimming back. Adjustable straps with no back bands or closures make the undergarment practically invisible under sleeveless clothing.
The Promise: Using the highest quality environmentally conscious components, the Shapeez promises you 360o luxurious shaping, support, slimming and smoothing and offers you:
- Patented smooth back design eliminates all back bulges and visible bra lines
- Seamless fabric underwire cup supports and shapes without adding size
- Smoothing control for waist, tummy, hips and back
- No roll hem
Size Range: Shapeez bras come in twenty-five sizes ranging from cup sizes A through to size E
Fitting: With two simple measurements I found my bra size. Shapeez has a unique easy measuring system of how and where to measure yourself for your bra size and a helpful video to show you how.
My thoughts: The Silkee Short Bra went on with ease. No clips or clasps, it simply slipped on, no struggle or pinching. You could feel the snug fit immediately. It was comfortable and supportive it moved with my body, not constricting. I was skeptic about underwired bras – last worn – decades ago. But my skepticism was wasted as the bra was lovely on skin and felt smooth and silky. I noticed the smoothed skin feel and ‘smooth back technology’ effect immediately.
This bra is superb. Who knew a bra could feel good hold your shape and look invisible when under clothes. Importantly it lifts and separates your breasts and smooths your curves.
The practicality and ingenuity of the bra is not compromised by the comfort and style – it has it all in this quality bra.
Cost: $79.00/ £63
