Diva Defined is the newest collection from Annette International. It is an adjustable shapewear line designed to compliment the curvaceous figure. Being an, ahem larger sized curvy girl, I have worn some shapewear in my time-so I was looking forward to checking out some of the Diva Defined collection. Annette International graciously sent me 2 pieces, the Adjustable Shapewear Brief and the Adjustable Shapewear Slimming Camisole.
In the Diva Defined Collection each piece has an adjustable inner belt is invisible, lies flat – the belt’s hook and eye closure offers four levels of adjustment from moderate to firm control-something I have never seen in shapewear.
I wore the brief under the pants I wore to Aaron’s Hope Presbyterian School Graduation and I had it adjusted to the 3rd level of firmness. It was very comfortable-even sitting through the hour long service it didn’t feel constricting or pinching. I attempted to wear both the camisole and the briefs to his S.H.A.R.E. Homeschool graduation and that didn’t really work. There were 2 problems, first-the camisole wouldn’t stay down-it kept riding up on my belly and not doing its job. Second, because both pieces have the adjustable belt in them-the belts overlapped and made it bulky in the back. I sat through the 2 hour service but as soon as it was over I snuck into the restroom and took off the camisole before attending the reception and party. If you don’t have big hips like I do, I am sure the camisole will fit you well.
I was so busy I almost forgot to take pictures of me wearing the brief, but here they are (they were taken after the graduation party and you can tell by my hair…I was exhausted).
The brief definitely helps keep my jiggly parts from jiggling! If you are in the market for shapewear please check out Annette International’s Diva Defined Collection.
Disclosure: I received an Adjustable Shapewear Brief and the Adjustable Shapewear Slimming Camisole for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% mine.
