How would I describe my body? As having lumps and bumps in all the wrong places. Whilst I’m proud of the fact my body carried two (big!) babies, it’s hidden away under black jeans and an over-sized top 99% of the time.
So when I was approached by the team at JoJo’s Secret to road test some of their shape wear, I jumped at the chance. Goodbye muffin top, hello slinky mama!
After seven weeks of being a lock down slob (no quarantine queen here!) and surviving on gin and biscuits, it’s fair to say that the number on the scales has risen – and whilst my current uniform is my trusty £5 Primark trackies, there will be an end to this and I still want to fit in – and feel good – in my clothes!
That’s where JoJo’s Secret comes in…
I placed an order for a ‘control body girdle‘ which is reasonably priced at just £14.99. They are high waisted and look, on first appearance, like something Mr Motivator would wear to keep his tackle secure during a vigorous work out. But shapewear isn’t meant to be sexy is it…though Jojo’s do have a whole lot of sexy on their site! You can check out the full ranges here.
The shape wear promises a high level of support to shape the waist, support the bum whilst smoothing the tummy and slimming the thighs and hips. All of that for under £15. Sign me up!
Shortly after placing my order, a beautiful box arrived on my doorstep. It really was stunning! A gorgeous dark grey box with gold embossed logo to the top, finished off with a dusky pink ribbon. Inside, my item was wrapped in pinky paper and placed on shredded tissue.
Guys, this would be an instant win! The hand finished presentation looks really special and heads and shoulders over the ‘chain’ lingerie shops.
