Product Review: The Perfect Waist

Ah, perfection. There's a perfect waist for each person - but most of the time, it takes a lot of exercise to achieve that level of perfection.

If you're anything like me, all the late night snacking and lifelong love affair with carbs has probably taken you a long, long way from a perfect waistline. And even IF I turned over a new leaf right at this moment, I'd still be at least a year away from having the ideal figure for my body type! So what do we do, right? ;) If there's anything that can help us, it's got to be SQUEEM!

Made famous on an episode of The Martha Stewart Show, the SQUEEM waist cincher is basically a corset for your waist. It's most popularly used by brides, to wear under their wedding gowns. :D This is the actual product in action when worn by Michelle, the owner of Supermodel's Secrets:

OMG right?! But wait, you're not paying RM189 just for a waist cincher that sucks everything in - you're paying for a magical piece of lingerie that will improve your body in the long term!

I've personally tried the SQUEEM corset, and I have to agree with its benefits. The most obvious physical difference is that it definitely reduces your waistline and will lift your boobs up. The long-term benefits are posture correction (it's very true! there's enough boning in the corset to prop your back up) and weight loss because of its firming fabric.

The SQUEEM corset may only be suitable for certain types of clothing because if the fabric is too thin and clingy, the corset's boning and edges may be visible - but personally, I think that the corset is good even if you only wear it while pottering about the house. It really helps in correcting my posture - like a "Sit up straight!" auto-corrector!

And, of course, if you wear it with the right clothes like wedding gowns, dinner dresses, dresses with lining, thicker sweaters, loose clothes that are not too fitting. It works great to smooth out muffin rolls and flattens the tummy! :D

Below are two pictures of me wearing the corset - the results aren't so obvious on me compared to Michelle, but I blame it on my bad photography. :P Sorry!

What Squeem looks like when worn:
No spare tyres when you stand up, and about 90% less spare tyres when you sit!

The material is such that it follows the shape of your natural waist, just that it sort of tucks everything in more neatly. :D For an even better idea of what it looks like, watch the first model in the video clip below, the SQUEEM waist cincher from Supermodel's Secrets looks EXACTLY like that:

Here are more photos I took of the SQUEEM waist cincher:

The cincher is available from sizes XS to XL.

I took size XL, which I reckon will fit anyone who is UK16-20. :) Their sizing chart is very accurate, so be sure to follow it carefully! The material is very stretchable but tight at the same time. I like that two levels of hooks are available, so you can still use this if you lose some weight! :D

Flawless product. High quality, made in Brazil. It's not one of those stretchy cotton underwear that we can buy in hypermarkets - this is top of the line stuff that's definitely worth every penny. :) I highly recommend every single woman reading this to invest in a SQUEEM waist cincher, it's a basic undergarment necessity! :D

If you have any questions at all, especially if you want to make sure if your outfits are suitable to be worn with the corset, please feel free to ask Michelle of Supermodel's Secrets. Anyone who has shopped with her before can assure you that she's as friendly and helpful as you can imagine! :)

Farah - hahaha! it must be the SQUEEM working its magical illusion on your eyes! ;)

Beverly - yup it helps flatten the tummy quite well! :D Because it sucks everything in, haha. You can see how it changed the tummy of Michelle (Supermodel's Secrets owner) in the first few pics above :)

is it comfortable when sitting down? this is tempting but scared it might be painful when sitting down for long periods.

Your Shopping Kaki said...

Yup, it's comfortable! :) It's not super tight but follows the natural shape of your body. But don't wear it for long periods, we don't recommend more than 4 hours at a time :)
