If you’ve seen any of my shapewear posts, you know I don’t wear shapewear with everything and I actually wear it a lot less in recent years since becoming a mom.

While 5 months pregnant, vacationing in Hawaii, I had a major wake-up call. There I was in the blistering heat of summer, wearing extremely uncomfortable shaping shorts underneath my semi-fitted sundress. As the day went on, I felt nauseous to the point that I was either going to vomit or pass out. My mom ordered me- yep, her then 32 year old daughter, to “go take the shorts off, now!”  Ever since then, I only wear shapewear when it improves my confidence in something form-fitting and is as comfy as it is effective.

Here’s what I currently have in my shapewear collection:
