vedette shapewear review and giveaway!

vedette corset in juliane, h&m slip dress.

Apologies for going a little AWOL lately, a mix of work and being sick (eye infection, cough, you name it) has been keeping me away from the blog and from giving all of you readers a surprise! I was recently contacted by Vedette Shapewear to do a product review on a piece of shapewear of my choice. Vedette is a Colombian brand of sophisticated shapewear which has been designing shapewear garments for over 30 years. Their goal is to provide high quality pieces that help you achieve your ideal silhouette as well as feel comfortable. Their pieces are not only designed to provide support but they can be worn as fashionable lingerie as well, which is perfect as I love the lingerie as outerwear trend! And was it hard to choose just one piece...each one is elegant and enhanced with beautiful details.

I decided to go with the Juliane style, an underbust corset with a lace finish which I thought was a very lovely and simple piece. The advanced powernet fabric and latex front panel is meant to shape your waist and back, which is most certainly did...being a bit of a stick, I loved that it added definition to my waist. The double hook-and-eye front closure also ensures that the corset fits you comfortably (Vedette's pieces run a bit on the small side so I decided to only do one row of hooks). Even better, this piece is very versatile for layering over dresses and adding a bit of interest, as well as a sensual touch, to your outfit! I will definitely be wearing this over more everyday pieces in the future.

Now for the best part: Vedette Shapewear is giving away a surprise piece of shapewear to five of you readers!  
All you have to do is:
1. Join Vedette Shapewear's Facebook page.
2. Follow me on Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin.
3. Leave your name and email address in a comment (open internationally).

 This giveaway will be open until Wednesday, April 20th. I will be randomly picking the winners.
Good luck to everyone and I hope you enjoyed the review! Many thanks to Vedette for giving me this opportunity.
