Tested September 2011


   "The Workout You Wear"  

              ShatoBu Review                  

I had the pleasure of testing a variety of ShatoBu shapewear garments during the month of September. I wore a piece of shapewear 4 or 5 times a week for a total of 16 test wears. Each time I wore the shapewear anywhere from 2-6 hours.

In the past I have tried shapewear from a variety of brands but usually reserved it for special occasions. I find most shapewear to be uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time or restrictive when it came to pairing with clothing. I don't like dealing with the rolling of the waistband or the feeling of the garment riding up or pulling as I move.

Initially, I thought the ShatoBu shapewear resembled some of the other similar brands on the market but quickly experienced the difference with an acceptable level of comfort that I attribute to the superior construction of the garments. One thing I did notice is the ShatoBu garments actually do return to their shape after hand washing and hang drying. In the past I noticed that other shapewear brands did not wash up well.

I could feel the resistance bands working while wearing the ShatoBu shapewear, especially when walking long distances. I also found that while wearing the shapewear, I had a heightened awareness to concentrate on engaging my core muscles, even when in a seated position. I actually wore a ShatoBu shaper for two pilates classes and found it to be similar to wearing fitted yoga pants. I was also pleased that the shapewear's moisture wicking feature actually worked to keep me drier than I would have imagined.

After wearing ShatoBu for a month, I noticed I felt a bit more confident and energized when I was wearing them as opposed to when I went without wearing them. The shapewear made my slinkier dresses fit better and any signs of panty lines were eliminated.

My favourite piece of ShatoBu is the footless leggings. I enjoyed wearing them with a tunic dress and gladiator style sandals. I just started wearing the high waist tights with boots to work with the cooler Fall weather.

After experiencing the comfort and long-wearing performance of the ShatoBu shapewear, I would consider purchasing more ShatoBu products and I will recommend the ShatoBu shapewear to friends.

I did not receive pay for this review but I did receive 5 pieces of ShatoBu shapewear for the purpose of product testing.

A Sequined Filled Week

Monday, March 8

The View starts out the week with glitz, glam and basking in the post-Oscar glow!
Co-host Vanessa Williams joined the ladies to dish about the Academy Awards show. Still doning her Oscar gown, Sherri Shepherd Skyped in from Hollywood. Sherri admits to being star struck by the actors and the celebrity filled parties. Wake up Sherri - it's not just a dream - you're a star too!  Sherri was a pro on the red carpet and a delight in the Academy Awards audience when her movie Precious took home two awards! Mo'Nique won Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Precious won Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) by Geoffrey Fletcher. 

I have to mention that Precious is a movie based on the book Push by Sapphire. The character Precious was portrayed by Gabourey Sidibe and I must say she looked regal in her royal blue gown. Best Actress winner Sandra Bullock sent heart felt praise her way. I can predict, along with so many others, that Gabby will be one actress to watch in the future.
