Giveaway & Review: Kymaro Body Shaper & Bottom Shaper Shapewear [CLOSED]

Since giving birth to twins a few years ago, I have not been able to get rid of my postpartum belly. I have tried all types of shapewear and none of them offered enough control. These new pieces by Kymaro are an exception.

The Kymaro New Body Shaper offers an amazing amount of control. I do think that I should have received one size larger even though my bra size recommends a size 2. Because I received a size that was a bit too small for me, I had much difficulty pulling the Body Shaper on because it needed to go over my hips. Once in place, the Body Shaper took inches off my belly. It also miraculously gave me a very defined waistline. I never had much of a waistline even when I was a size 1. That was just my build. So I was shocked to see how this Body Shaper now worked on my size 10 body. Because the size was too small, although I looked great, I was not comfortable. I felt like I could not exhale easily and I would not be able to sit down. I also needed my husband's assistance in taking the Body Shaper off.

Although I do not have many problems in my hind area, I could still see the difference the Kymaro Bottom Shaper Shorts made. This piece of shapewear better defined the "w" on the lower part of my bottom.

Below you can see the control panels used in both the top and the bottom pieces. The left photo shows the wide panel on the top that goes all around the mid-section and is not just located in the front. I think that is where most other brands go wrong. Having the control panel just in the front does not give the extra control someone like myself needs. The photo on the right shows how these shorts define the buttocks.

I would love to try the Kymaro Body Shaper in the size 3. You can actually find this product for $39.99 at major retailers, such as Target, Wamart, and CVS. If you do try one or both of these pieces, I'd love to hear how they worked out for you.

Thank you to Kymaro for sending me samples of each garment free of charge to base this review upon and for providing a second set for our contest prize.
