I don’t know about you, but I’m always in search of miraculous undergarments to hold my post-childbearing body together. I’m what you’d call thin-limbed, but that means that I carry all my weight in my midsection. BLERGH.
I’ve written about several shapewear pieces over the last year or so that I’ve been running Chic Critique, but I think I’ve just discovered the best one yet. This is exactly the sort of thing I’ve been looking for. It’s the Unbelievabra Ultimate — “a bra/cami/torso slimmer all in one ($85), for the woman who wants an all-in-one bra solution.”
Here’s what they say about it:
Solutions: The miracle product’s unique patent pending design eliminates all visible bra lines, back bulges, and even the feared “muffin top,” effectively and comfortably providing superior breast support as well as slimming of the waist, tummy and back. The Unbelievabra additionally boasts molded foam cups and adjustable straps with no back bands or closures to make the undergarment practically invisible under clothing. And the hem does not roll up! The support, extended back coverage and moisture-wicking qualities of The Unbelievabra’s cropped style, “The Shortee” also makes it a great alternative to the traditional sports bra!
Content: Made from breathable cool-tex microfiber that wicks moisture from the body to keep wearers dry and comfortable all throughout the day.
Size Range: The Ultimate and Shortee Unbelievabras come in an expansive twenty-five sizes ranging from cup sizes A through E.
Founder: Stay-at-home mom turned entrepreneur Staci Berner created the Unbelievabra after not being able to find a bra/shaper that had all of the features and benefits she both needed and wanted. She developed the Unbelievabra while balancing home life with a passion to create a comfortable figure-flattering garment that all women would love to wear:
“I was searching for a bra that could provide great support and shaping for my breasts, while smoothing and slimming my back all in one. I looked everywhere and bought dozens of bras and shapewear products claiming breast support and the elimination of the dreaded back fat, but none provided all the features I needed. So I took matters into my own hands and created my first prototype. When I showed friends, the response was always WOW!!, the difference is unbelievable! (hence the name),” Staci Berner, Co-Founder, Shapeez.
Here’s what I say about it: This is exactly what I’ve been looking for all my life. Well, at least for the last five years. It eliminates the dreaded back fat AND muffin top. The molded cups provide a nice shape, and the support it provides is impressive. It doesn’t QUITE keep the girls where they should be, but that’s not obvious to anyone but myself, and that’s a problem I have with traditional bras as well. In other words, that could be me, not the product. I love that it’s not so tight that it’s restricting, and because there is no binding strap around your back, it’s actually more comfortable than wearing a traditional bra.
The bottom stays put if I tuck it into my jeans. If I wear it over the top of them, however, it does ride up. (But it does not roll up, as they promise.) The riding up is not really a problem, but it’s more comfortable if it’s tucked in so it stays in place. It’s not so long that it makes an unattractive line across your bum as another shapewear product that I’ve tried.
All in all, I’m thrilled. I’ve been wearing it almost every time I put on jeans or slacks. If you’re looking for an all-in-one piece of shapewear, I highly recommend you give Shapeez a try.
