I don’t normally buy “Seen on Screen” or “As Seen on TV” products, although they do look appealing sometimes. Of the few that I have purchased some have worked and others haven’t. Several months ago, I bought a Kymaro Body Shaper. I was considering purchasing Spanx for wearing under dresses and dress clothing. Spanx Slimming Camisoles retail for $44 to $198 and I wasn’t prepared to pay that much. When shopping at Wal-Mart one day, I spotted the Kymaro Body Shaper. The Kymaro Body Shaper retails at Wal-Mart for $29.99. I liked that price better.
I also liked the concept of the Kymaro Body Shaper. Instead of just being made of super stretchy fabric that binds up the fat, Kymaro has built-in back support reinforcement. The camisole is designed to fit high across the back with a criss-cross back support and low in the front. I suffer from chronic low back pain brought on by scoliosis. I have debated on whether to try a back brace. My chiropractor was adamantly opposed to a wearing a back brace or back support. Wearing the Kymaro Body Shaper has the advantage of back support without the disadvantage of back muscles becoming weak from being bound in a brace.
Another plus for the Kymaro Body Shaper is that, like Spanx Slimming Camis, the Kymaro Body Shaper fits under the breasts. I like that I’ve tried support garments that cover (and squash) the breasts. In order to get the smooth shaping of a foundation garment, you have to sacrifice breast comfort and health. It feels like you’re walking around with a permanent mammogram machine attached to your chest. I’ve tried the kinds that are stretchy all over and have little pockets for the breasts. That’s no good either. If you have medium to large breasts, it’s difficult to get the breast to fit into the little pocket while maneuvering in the cripplingly tight body shaper. Wearing these kind gives me an idea of what it must feel like to be in a straight jacket. The straps of the Kymaro Body Shaper rest under the breasts and are quite comfortable. The bra goes on over (or under) the Kymaro.
The construction of the Kymaro Body Shaper is study and comfortable. It washes well, retains it’s shape and can be worn for long periods of time without feeling uncomfortable. Kymaro Body Shapers are quite long and cover most of the buttocks, too. I have been so pleased with the Kymaro Body Shaper that I will likely invest in the Kymaro 2-Piece Body Shaper next time. Kymaro has also come out with Curve Control jeans with body shaper built in. For more on the Kymaro Body Shaper and for pricing and ordering, visit the links included.
