Fashion, IntimatesVa Bien 1500

My latest foray into shapewear led me to Va Bien, and I have to say that I am a fan.  Va Bien has been around since 1979, which means it’s helped out multiple generations of women. Well, while I can guess that my grandmother wouldn’t be wearing anything tight enough to require shapewear, I do! And when it comes to dressing for events, not any shapewear will do, I need stuff that lifts, shrinks, tightens, and slims all while being invisible under my extremely low cut and clingy dresses. So the Va Bien Ultra-Lift Low Plunge Body Briefer, is my go to helper-piece when nothing else will work.

First, notice the plunge down the front.  This baby won’t be peeking out of anything I wear – no matter how low cut I decide to go! Likewise, the back is also very low, which is great because sometimes those tube dress shaped slips just won’t do. This piece also has some powerful sucking action as that double panel in the front keeps my stomach in line.  The body briefer also contains the patenteded ultra lift design.  Molded into the bra cups are basically two “hands” that lift your breasts up so you can make sure that you’re showing off your best assets in that sexy dress. 

All of these features, and the body briefer still manages to be seamless and stay out of the way.  Amazing! You can check out this style for yourself at the Va Bien website or at fine department stores where the brand is carried.

    The low cut front and back are great- how supportive is the bra part?

    the bra cups are totally supportive… they use a design called ultra-lift with thin plastic stays sealed inside the foam of the cups. they’re actually inside the foam so you don’t actually feel them and you def can’t see them.

    i own a strapless bra by va bien with ultra-lift cups and lovvvvvvvve it!!
