Sponsored Review: Jockey Tummy Short

When I was first contacted about doing a review of Jockey’s new shapewear and intimates line, done in collaboration with Rachel Zoe, who considers what we wear underneath our clothing to be just as important as the outer clothes themselves, I must admit I was pretty geeked about it! I’d never worn shapewear but had started wondering about it over the last year or so, as I have (or had) some clothes that did not agree with my hips and behind, and some days I dreaded a potential panty line but was not in the mood to wear a thong.

When the box of goodies arrived from Jockey, I made a beeline for the Tummy Short, as I was curious about how and if it worked. Though I’d never worn any shapewear, I’ve seen my share of it throughout the years, and it never looked comfortable. As a matter of fact, it always looked like a pain to even put on.

The Tummy Short from Jockey was nothing like the shapewear I’d observed over the years. I put it on without any difficulties, and it was extremely comfortable! I loved the high-waisted 2-ply tummy panel that added control to the little stomach pudge and slight lower-back fat that I am currently trying to work off at the gym. I wore the Tummy Short a few times before writing this review and was initially afraid of sweating a bit in the Texas heat, but the cotton spandex breathes far better than the nylon spandex blend I’ve seen in other shapewear brands, I’m sure. I think what I loved the most is that I was able to move my legs and use my body with great ease, never feeling confined or restricted, even though I could tell that the shapewear was working.

For me, the true tester for Jockey’s Tummy Short was this vintage leather skirt that I got out of my mom’s closet a couple of years ago. When she let me have it, I could kind of barely squeeze into it, but two years later, it wouldn’t go past my hips! Though it’s pretty tight, I was able to put this vintage leather skirt on while wearing the Tummy Short, which makes it a definite winner for me!

In addition to the Tummy Short, so far I’ve tried the thong and hipster panties from Jockey’s new line as well. They were both very comfortable, and the hipster didn’t ride up, which is a major plus in my book. I am looking forward to trying out the Strappy Tank and Slip Shaper too, as I imagine they’ll be as comfortable, yet properly binding, as the Tummy Short.

Rachel Zoe’s “Major Must Haves” from Jockey are available now in major retailers, Jockey outlet stores, and on Jockey.com.
