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.

    I wish I had been wearing shapewear when I went to a recent wedding and ended up spending half the night in the bathroom adjusting my dress.

    My best friend chose a gorgeous and flattering bridesmaid dress for me; however the fabric was pretty clingy and showed my rolls. LOL Shapewear would have at least helped hide what I was smuggling! LOL

    I bought a new dress for a wedding but I didn’t look my best because I bought it too big so I could camouflage my figure. I should have been wearing shapewear.

    I wish that I was wearing shapewear when I had on this cute, one sleeved, dress at a 30th birthday party. Instead I wore a pair of control top tights…not a good idea.

    I wish I had been wearing shapewear, post-baby at my son’s Kindergarten Graduation. I was wearing this really cute jersey wrap-dress, but when I passed a window at the school I realized that I looked like a Shar-pei in a dress.

    At my boys confirmation at church! Had perfect dress. Didn’t realize it was a little snug. Hubby and some baby powder had to help get my full length hot sweaty spanx on. Was not pretty. My husband is now visually scarred from that scene!

    I need to wear shapewear anytime I wear a skirt or dress (haven’t been to the gym in years). Spanks are completely uncomfortable and this new line sounds like such a better option. Thank you for the opportunity, and you do look fabulous in your skirt.

    At my high school reunion!

    I once went to a wedding and wore a very slinky dress. I was pretty young and fit at the time but shapewear certainly would have enhanced my assets.

    I went to a business dinner a few years back and the dress I wore, definitely needed shapewear.
    Didn’t look too bad, but I was not comfortable the entire night.

    I could use shapewear under all my clothes post pregnancy now that nothing seems to fit right!

  • Bev Edge

    I remember the day I was the matron of honor at my friends’ very casual backyard vows. It was a beautiful day, but I felt very self-conscious of how I looked in my clothes. I picked something frumpy and too big because I didn’t think I looked good enough for my ‘nice’ clothes. I should give these shapers a try!

    I wish I was wearing shapewear the year after giving birth. I didn’t lose the weight very easily.

  • http://www.riamichelle.com Ria

    Very nice! I’ve wanted to try shapewear too but I’m kind of nervous about it. I don’t know why lol. Also I’m always wary about it flattening out my butt. Glad to see you look great in your skirt.
