“ sometimes I wear two pairs of body shapers on top of each other—especially when I am heavier, I def double it up, ” Kim Kardashian confessed in a holocene post on her app ( opens in new pill ). As a KUWTK traditionalist, I ‘ve always admired Kim ‘s transparency about everything from Botox to cellulite treatments. Intel that she is, in fact, human is constantly valued. But while I was aware she ‘s a shapewear enthusiast ( remember the I- Can not -Leave-the-House-Without-My-Spanx ( opens in modern yellow journalism ) episode ? ), I had no mind she had it down to such a science. “ I wear two pairs that are the same distance, ” she continued. “ I try not to layer two different lengths, because I do n’t want there to be visible seams. I want there to always just be one wrinkle. ” The pièce de résistance of her Spanx collection ? The Higher Power Capri ( opens in new tab key ) ( $ 28 ). ( double credit : courtesy of Spanx ) “ I precisely recently got introduced to the footle tights, which I can wear with longer dresses like this—so you ‘ll NEVER see my Spanx channel because the seam is lower, ” she says. “ I typically like them past the knee or veracious at the stifle. They truly hold you in and make you feel secure ! ” Before getting Kim ‘s play-by-play, I had never considered wearing shapewear. I ‘d love to say this is because I ‘m 100 % happy with my lifelike human body, but if I ‘m being honest, part of me was a little afraid I ‘d get addicted to it. As a curvier charwoman like Kim, I have many of the lapp insecurities and did n’t want it to become excessively much of a crutch. I ‘d constantly thought of it like Facetune, except IRL. But interminably curious—and in the interest of fact-finding journalism—I decided to ignore my hang ups and have a rifle at it. so here ‘s what you get ( and how you feel ) when you double up shapewear underneath unlike bodycon silhouettes à louisiana Kim. ( image recognition : Tyler Joe ) I started off with one of Kim ‘s most celebrated looks, the seamless Wolford Fatal metro dress ( opens in new tab ). It encompasses so many elements of her signature style and let ‘s be very, leaves about nothing to the resource. When I pulled on the inaugural layer of Spanx, it felt like an extra compact version of tights. I was a smooth, more taut translation of myself. I was into it. But getting on the extra layer was a unharmed early fib. not only was it twice a hard to get on, but once I strapped myself into the second layer, it felt like a girdle. In fact, it was like walking around with a different body. This said, it truly improved my position. I felt grandiloquent and more stately.

In the Fatal dress, I was amazed at how cinch my waist looked. It was like wearing an invisible corset. And from the side, it enhanced the S-curve and took my butt joint to new heights. My merely complaint was that the duplicate layer of Spanx made it hard to maneuver my body—especially my abdomen area. I did n’t eat in the Spanx, but I imagine polishing off a larger meal would have been damn near impossible. elegance is refusal, I suppose.

Stuart Weitzman The Legwrapsong Sandal, $ 498 ( was $ 349 ) ; stuartweitzman.com ( opens in newfangled pill ). Look #2: The Scoop-Neck Dress ( effigy credit : Tyler Joe ) This ribbed pucker dress was the least confining of the styles, but I found the material to be the least absolvitory in the mooch sphere. Thus, I was grateful for the bump-free smooth and rise from the Spanx. In pictures particularly, I thought it made the style look more bespoke and expensive. Tailoring machine politician !

Look #3: The Sleeveless LBD ( effigy credit : Tyler Joe ) This stretchable black pucker fabric felt inherently flattering, but the Spanx truly took it to the next level in the derrière department. just as it did in the previous two looks, it airbrushed the edges and made things more impertinent overall.

Stuart Weitzman The Nudist Sandal in Beige Goose Bump, $ 415 ; stuartweitzman.com ( opens in new yellow journalism ). I ‘m a Spanx convert, but I wo n’t be doubling down again anytime soon. I think one pair of the Higher Power Capri is the perfect compromise between taming things ( i.e. smooth and compressing ) in less-forgiving looks while besides letting yourself breathe survive. And if anyone has anything to say about it, well, I ‘m cook to own up to it/wax poetic about the shapers—just like Kim.
