Review with Giveaway: LIPO in a BOX



When I first heard of LIPO in a BOX it immediately caught my attention. If you don't know this about me already, I am obsessed with under garments that make you instantly look thinner than you really are. So of course for me learning about LIPO in a BOX was one of those eyes wide open, gotta go check this out moments. So I went straight to their website and spent about 1/2 hour there enjoying every second of browsing around. There is so much to see, so many fabulous shapewear products and gorgeous undergarments, that I just knew this was a brand I wanted to feature on my blog and include in my Holiday Glamour & 2010 Holiday Gift Giving Guide. The folks over at LIPO in a BOX are so sweet and enthusiastic about the collections they have created, that their excitement is contagious and I too am totally smitten with all their collections.



Here's some background about LIPO in a BOX:

You might have seen our shapewear line on The Oprah Winfrey Show, QVC or The TODAY Show. But what makes LIPO in a BOX special when compared to the other shapewear products out there? (Read our testimonials for REAL reviews from REAL women to find out... the secret is our attention to quality and to YOUR comfort.)

She donates a percentage of profit each year to these great causes, as well to organizations for breast cancer research.

MY REVIEW

The generous folks over at LIPO in a BOX sent me two of their most popular items to review. They could not have made two better choices because the two items I was sent are just perfect for my needs and my lifestyle. I will probably never be satisfied with my body as it is, I always feel I can make it slimmer, trimmer, leaner, sleeker, you get the idea. So having the chance to wear shapewear that will improve the appearance of my body, and enhance my physique is always a welcome gift and a real confidence booster! So let me share my new secret to looking like I lost 10 lbs. without dieting, but shhhh don't tell anyone!

Bodysuit with Legs With Underwire, #46300
Price: $82.00




Quick Overview:

* Excellent midriff, tummy and back support
* Fits like a second skin, moves with you
* No panty lines
* Thigh control
* Eliminates back rolls
* Comfortable gusseted opening for bathroom convenience, overlaps with no hooks or snaps
* Comfortable underwire offering desired support



MY THOUGHTS: I love that this piece replaces all my undergarments and I can wear this under literally everything, pants, skirts, dresses, jeans, etc. You name it, it will work under it to immediately make me look smooth, sleek and most importantly slimmer in all my clothes. It fits nice and snug against my body comfortably working to suck it all in to give me that smooth silhouette that I strive to achieve.

The first thing I did when I received this shapewear bodysuit was wash it. I put it in the nice LIPO in a BOX netted laundry bag that it came with which allowed me to easily wash it in the washing machine using the delicate cycle. I then line dried it overnight so I could wear it the next day. It was a little hard to get used to getting into, I am a total klutz and not always steady on my feet, so it was a bit tricky to squirm my way into it at first. But now that I have been wearing this for weeks, I am an old pro at it and it is a piece of cake to get into and a joy to wear!

I am so impressed with the feel of the material, it is lightweight, soft and smooth texture, and feels luxurious against your skin. It is not too thick where you feel like you are wearing elastic around your body, not at all. It feels snug, but for me delightful on myself because I know that it is gently working to make my body look slimmer and trimmer. I would endure pain if I had to, but wearing this there is no need to suffer ladies! It is divine perfectionism at its finest, a miracle piece of shapewear made of impeccable quality.

During the upcoming holidays I know I am going to be tempted by so much fabulous appetizers, meals, sweets, treats, drinks, you name it, I will be wanting to devour it, so this LIPO in a BOX bodysuit is going to be a magical lifesaver for me, allowing me to enjoy the holiday festivities while enabling me to still be able to fit into and wear my favorite outfits throughout the season!

The second item I was sent to review is:

"Vivien" Convertible Go2Bra from LIPO in a BOX
Price: $39.99

Wear it as a Regular Bra as pictured below:



Or Convert it to a Halter Style as pictured below:



Quick Overview:

* Tuxedo look, Satin trim (tone on tone), seamless, full coverage bra with tiny bow detail between bust
* 3-Way Convertible: wide set, criss-cross, halter
* 2 sets of straps included; 1 pair non-stretch for wide set can criss-cross style choices, 1 pair stretch straps for halter style choices
* Brushed fleece lining for support, modesty and comfort in all climates
* Comfortable underwire for added support

Special Features: Convertible Style!

There are 3 Backside Views:

Regular Standard Non-Stretch Straps as pictured below:




Halter Style using the Stretch Straps as pictured below:




Criss-Cross X Back using either Straps as pictured below:



MY THOUGHTS: This is the bra that every woman should have in her possession. It is one of the most versatile, comfortable, supportive bras I have worn not to mention so super sexy and cute! This darling bra lifts my cleavage ever so slightly to make my shape look perky and firm, I like that no bounce feeling, one that you can achieve when you wear a fine quality underwire bra like this one! I say this bra has it all because for me style and design is equally as important as support and comfort. I enjoy knowing that under my clothes I am wearing a pretty, feminine, sexy bra. I have always gotten a "thrill" out of wearing beautiful lingerie, especially when I can be myself in it, without having to worry that I am sacrificing support and comfort for wearing something alluring and enticing. No sacrificing with the Vivien Bra, it is the bra that has it all!

As always, I washed this bra before wearing it using the LIPO in a BOX netted laundry bag using the delicate cycle of our washing machine. I lined dried it overnight and it looked like brand new in the morning. I am as equally impressed with the fine construction of this bra as I am with the bodysuit I received. I feel good in knowing that I will be able to wear these items for a very long time because they are rendered with such high standards and excellent manufacturing and they will stand the test of time with consistent washing and wearing.

I have tested out the different ways with which I can wear this versatile bra and it is going to come in so handy with all my clothes, which makes this bra so unique from any others that I own. I plan to wear some of my dressier holiday outfits in the coming months and the Vivien bra will be my favorite go to bra throughout the holiday season!

Now for the best part......the giveaway!!
