Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Review: Inches Off Instant Body Shaper

It's not a secret that I am extremely conscious about my weight. I exercise and I try so hard to eat right, but it's an uphill challenge. It's always easier to lie to myself that I won't get fat if I miss one exercise or eat one bag of chips - I keep doing it until suddenly, my waistline is an inch fatter.

While there is no, and I repeat, no better way to lose weight than to eat right and exercise, a girl can always use the help of waist-shapers like girdles and corsets. I am not advocating them as a permanent way of life, but they are pretty useful while you're trying to get a slammin' body (and hopefully a healthy one as well)! One product that I've recently tried is the Inches Off Instant Body Shaper.

I got the High Waist Tummy Flattener Firm Control Panty. I wore it the other day under a thin, jersey dress and I can really see and feel the difference. It doesn't feel uncomfortable at all nor does it restrict my breathing. It's like I was tucking my tummy in the whole time, but without the effort! It's invisible too.

It did shape my body nicely, taking off muffin tops as well as an inch and a half from my waist. I do have a minor problem with it though: the silicon lining at the top (like clear plastic gel) left an angry red line on my skin. It's an ingenious way to keep the top from rolling down when you sit, but it is quite tight, of course. Oh the sacrifices we must make!

Overall, this is a pretty good product for the price. It's only P1,750 at SM and Watsons branches (click for specifics).
