Slimpressions: Review and Giveaway (ends 4/20)

slimpressionslogo

I love trying out new body shapers so I when I had the chance to test Slimpressions, I was excited.  Most body shapers just address the bottom half of our bodies and neglect the issues women have above the waist.  Slimpressions is a patent-pending line of everyday shapewear designed to slim a woman’s arms, back and midriff.  Slimpressions come in sizes 2 to 22 and in a variety of colors including white, nude, chocolate, and black.  They also come in petite sizes which impressed me as most shaper garments seem to forget about petite girls. Slimpressions prevents the dreaded Muffin Top which is when your tummy hangs over the side of your jeans. Oprah calls Muffin Top, “Dunlap Syndrome;” it happens when your stomach “done lap over your jeans.” 🙂 

slimpresshaves1The two versions of Slimpressions I tested were “The Haves” and “The Skinny Mini.” “The Haves” is for us girls who want to put it all back where it belongs.  The garment features gentle compression which smooths and shapes our dreaded “arm flab” and soft cups for comfy chest coverage.  I like that you do not have to wear a bra with this product.  It also has a long torso which is great for me because I am 5’7.”   I tried it in white and I thought it was a little see through so I would probably wear it underneath a cardigan or jacket.   slimpressskinny1

“The Skinny Mini” features upper body control in the form of a tank top.  The first thing I noticed about this product was that it had adjustable straps which I really like.  I can’t imagine wearing a tank that does not allow you to change the strap size.  Again with this product you do not need to wear a bra underneath.  Some similar products claim to be bra tanks but if you are a big busted girl like me you know they don’t always work.  The Slimpressions does what it says and provides support for your chest area.  It also has a long torso which is a great quality in a shaper garment.  

My first thought about shapewear for the arms was that it would be uncomfortable.  Not so with Slimpressions! I was impressed at how comfortable it felt on. Now getting it on was another story. When you wear Slimpressions, make sure you put the garment on according to the directions which say to step into it “from the top, slide up, adjust through the middle, shoulders, and arms, then slim down!”  I tried to put it on the traditional way over my head which was hilarious.  The Little Write Gal was home with me at the time and I called her into the bathroom to rescue Mommy.  She finally did 10 minutes later after she quit laughing.

Slimpressions is giving the Write Gal readers a 25% discount on their purchase.  Just enter WRITEGAL2009 at checkout anytime between now and 5/31/09.  It gets better because one reader can win their choice of shaper garment from the entire site!  That is a $58-$72 value depending on which one you select.  To enter all you have to do is go to the Slimpressions site and tell me in a comment which Slimpressions style and color you would choose.  That’s it.  For extra entries, you can:

  1. Tell me in a separate comment why you need Slimpressions – 1 extra entry.
  2. Blog about my contest and link back to this post and Slimpressions – 5 extra entries. Be sure and leave five separate comments because the winner will be chosen randomly.

Contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 20.  The  winner will be announced on my blog on April 21st and will have 48 hours after I email them to claim their prize. 

Good Luck!

    I luv the SLIM IMPRESSIONS !!! ( part of my body needs alittle taming )

  24. 24 Tracy April 7, 2009 at 2:59 pm

    I’d love ‘The Haves’ in black, I’m totally intrigued that you said it can be worn without a bra, because I have yet to find a tank or shaper that truly could be worn that way. Like you I’m ‘well endowed’ and have a long torso, this sounds like the ticket. I would like to try it, under my business suits, I’m job hunting, and all that pounding the pavement it’s not easy to look to look polished when you have like what seems like a million interviews in one day, sounds like this would help me feel more confident!

  25. 25 paige chandler April 7, 2009 at 4:04 pm

    The Haves in black for me…can really use the help up there and arms too. I would wear it under a blouse and it looks like it would smooth out the stomach nicely too. Nice giveaway, thanks.

  33. 33 Frances Reiss April 7, 2009 at 6:48 pm

    I am just getting off of a really radical diabetic diet. Over the last year I lost 72 pounds. Now I am feeling saggy. I am on an exercise program but it is filling in the saggy feeling slowly. I would love this slimming shape wear. I like the warmers the best. Thank for having women are always having figure problems like having just had a baby or having spent a year on a medically prescribed diet. The warmers could restore self esteem. It is a critical time for me to restore my self esteem.

    I’d choose the skinny mini in black.

  60. 60 Barbara J April 11, 2009 at 12:49 am

    I could sure use the slimming in the torso these days. Working out with weights has my arms all right (not going to challenge Michelle Obama anytime soon, though!) but the flab around the middle persists.

  61. 61 alison April 11, 2009 at 1:49 am

  69. 69 Frances Reiss April 12, 2009 at 8:09 am

    Once again, I want to comment on how much haves could help in restoring my self esteem and grateful I am for this contest and learning about these products.

  72. 72 Janice Wright April 12, 2009 at 2:15 pm

  92. 93 joanna smith April 17, 2009 at 4:01 pm

    I would love to own the Slimpressions The Halves in the color Black. It will go with so many of the outfits I always wear! Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter.

  93. 94 joanna smith April 17, 2009 at 4:05 pm

    I need Slimpressions The Halves because I do like to wear my clothes form fitting, in other words, close to my body as opposed to loose fitting and I want to portray as smooth and sleek a look in my clothes as possible. As I get older the skin on my upper arms is starting to sag a little, due to lack of exercising them properly too, and wearing The Halves top will keep my arms looking slimmer and leaner. That is a real confidence booster, and we all can use that don’t cha think?! I think Slimpressions is a must have for every woman’s wardrobe, they are so versatile in what you can wear with with and they are going to always make you feel your personal best!

  94. 95 acupofjoy April 17, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    I need The Haves in black, please!

  99. 100 Mindie Whitten April 18, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    I need Slimpressions because I am still trying to lose that last of my baby weight and because I am back in the singles market after 10 years of being out. I need all the help I can get with my esteem! This would be a great item for my wardrobe. Thanks for the giveaway!

  100. 101 Danielle April 19, 2009 at 4:28 am

    I would choose the skinny minis in black.

  101. 102 Danielle April 19, 2009 at 4:29 am

    I could really use the black skinny minis tank because I like tight clothes, but the area i carry my extra baggage in does not agree with that. I wear a tank under my tops every day to minimize the flab but its just not doing the job. I hope this would be able to help, im willing to try anything.

  102. 103 Angie P April 19, 2009 at 4:42 pm

  105. 106 Courtney April 19, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    I could use Slimpressions to try to ease my anxiety about an upcoming event that I need to try to squeeze into a dress for! I think that having Slimpressions will make me feel more confident and, therefore, let me have more fun at the event. Wish me luck! 🙂

  123. 124 Auriette April 20, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    I need help from Slimpressions because I’m not only out of shape, I have lapsed into very poor posture habits. I think a quality body shaper would help me feel better about how I look in my clothes, and it would remind me to stand up straight!

    I think I need this because I do love me some avocados, and avocados do not allow room for a flat belly.

    I need Slimpressions because I could use a sleeker look.

    I like the Have-Nots in black.

    I would like The Haves in black.

    I need some support on my upper arms.

    I would go for the Tanks a little in Nude size 2.

    I need slimpressions because I am 31 and have 3 kid – which gives me little time to try to get my body where I want it. If I had this, then I would feel better about how I look which would motivate me to keep going towards my goal weight.
