Vedette Shapewear day to night look

Hi guys!
How are you? I hope everyone had a good start into the week?!
It's a national holiday here in Germany, so I used my free morning to finally edit the photos for this post, that I had shooted in the last days.

You might remember that I have cooperated with Vedette Shapewear in the past, I styled one of their shaping items for a Christmas look here.
They were so kind to offer me another piece of choice from their amazing range of products and asked me to style a "day to night" look with it. I was so happy! I was already very happy with my first item, so it was even better to get another one. I browsed the website for so long... and finally I decided to go for a classic basic: a black waist- and hips-shaping body suit with bra top - the "AIMÈE" body suit.
I lost some pounds recently, so I was able to take a size L and it fortunately fits like a glove and shapes my love handles just so that I look nicely slim around the waist.

Day look

This is how I styled the body suit for a stroll through the forest. I normally try to avoid having my belly area peeking out under shirts, but with the body suit it was the perfect way of layering my light cropped sweater. The whole thing got casual with the shorts and flats, but as the sweater is a little see-through, the silhouette of the body underneith added a bit of, let's say, "low key sexiness". ;)

It felt a bit like wearing a bathing suit without going swimming ;)
But despite the stronger fabric in the shaping area around the waist, it still was comfortable to wear and didn't make me sweat too much under the anyway breezy sweater.

Night look

After concealing the inviting cleavage for the day look, I thought it would be okay to show it as it is in the night look. I chose to combine a skirt and belt with the body suit to make it look like a cocktail dress and also added a see-through lace jacket to keep me look dressed (and to conceal my chubby upper arms, ha!).

I think the cleavage really is a bit daring and I actually planned to wear a black lace shirt underneath, but I couldn't find one, so it had to work without. However I would probably try to find one if I planned to wear this outfit for a girl's night out or something because otherwise I would seriously be afraid of a second Nipplegate all night!
Apart from that, again the whole outfit was very comfortable to wear and I didn't have the feeling of looking like a dolled-up whale because my waist was shaped nicely and made a very nice silhouette together with the a-line skirt.

So, what do you say? Do you guys like this day to night transformation? Would you wear shapewear? And if yes, would you wear it as outer wear? Any other suggestions or opinions about it? Talk to me! :)

Happy Monday!

  2. That's really cute! It gives you such a nice little waist. Now that I'm growing into my womanly body (AKA gaining weight in my 20's), I should probably explore the world of shapewear more. Now I have some options!
