As I am looking forward to my dress coming in, I have started thinking about shapewear. After reading tons of reviews, it would seem that Spanx is not the way to go and that Rago is. I’m very pleased as the price is right:)
My dress is very light (crepe material) and unforgiving around the tummy area. It also has a low back which makes finding the right shapewear hard. Actually, I should rephrase. it will have a low back as I am modifying the illusion back to a low back (I get very hot and need as much open skin as possible). I really like low back so wanted to make it as dramatically low as possible, but now realize it may not be all that possible given the need for shapewear.
I was thinking of purchasing the Rago Extra Firm Shaping Thigh Slimmer, Style 6797: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B001QGIBOO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&psc=1
So to all past, present or future brides out there who may have the appropriate knowledge:
– It’s not considered one of the high waist products, but how high does it go? (want to see how low I can actually make the back of my dress)
– The product is called a thigh slimmer, but does it still slim the waist/tummy a considerable amount? (lower tummy is my biggets problem area)
– Reviews are mixed as to whether to go a size up or not. I am 5’7″ and 125 lbs and would normally get a small I think. But many reviews have said to go up a size which works well because I can order the Medium (no smalls left), however some reviews have said they went up a size and it was too large?
– Any additional information you may have 🙂
