Because this is a beauty blog, I usually prefer to review only cosmetics and other beauty tools. But last summer, my friend Dao sent me an email, saying she had been contacted by a new brand looking for some testers and asked me if I were interested in being one of them. Braologie, this is the name of the brand, makes shapewear that promises to help your posture. I was instantly intrigued. Because of all the years spent at the computer, and wearing the wrong bra size, my posture is far from great. I wasn’t sure that shapewear could help much, but I was still more than willing to give it a try. So, how does it work?
Braologie has come up with a revolutionary approach in bra-fitting. Most women have never been fitted personally for a bra and, as a result, they’re wearing the wrong one. This can cause back pain, poor posture, bad shape and, in more serious cases, even restricted breathing. Braologie helps you pick up the right bra for you. And the best part is that you don’t even have to leave your home. All you have to do is fill in a questionnaire about what kind of bras you’re currently using and your body measurements, and send them 3 pictures of your upper torso showing front, side and back. But don’t worry. You don’t need to send them naughty pictures. You can be fully clothed.
Then, Braologie will send you back a full report explaining what your problems are. This can be quite long and scary, but I have to admit they were spot on about everything. Much as I wanted to believe that my posture problems weren’t so bad, I actually need help. They recommended that, to correct them, I used their bra, mini vest and the long leg pantry, and shipped them to me. I was a bit scared they would be the wrong size or something. After all, I find it very difficult to pick up a good bra at a lingerie shop where I can try it on, so how can a stranger get it right with only 3 photos and a few answers to a questionnaire?
Very well, as it turns now. All the products were a perfect fit and they also come with step-by-step written and visual instructions to help you put them on correctly. I was also asked to send them 3 photos with all the shapewear on to make sure I was wearing them right. When you first wear them, you may feel some discomfort, but that’s normal with this type of products. But this sensation doesn’t last long. By the end of the day I had already forgotten I was wearing them! Brologie recommends that you wear them daily for best results. However, I only wore the bra and mini vest every day. I wasn’t so consistent with the long leg pantry because, being quite long, it shows up when I wear skirts and dresses, which I often do. But I did usually put it on once back at home.
So, I first put the bra on and… Instant boob job! No kidding. The bra lifted my breasts and, because all the excess fat on my back and armpits is now pulled back into the cups, they also look fuller. This will also make your back look thinner. In addition, the distance between the breasts is reduced. The bra also gives great support. Apparently, when your bra doesn’t, your trapezius muscle tightens to take the weight of the breast, causing pain. With this bra, this doesn’t happen. Yet, it is not so tight as to leave marks on your body. Plus, it is made of lace, which is always a bonus for me. It’s quite big, but also sexy. This is seriously the best bra I have ever used and I can’t imagine how I could live without it.
Next, the mini vest. Made of a comfortable thin material, it is very easy to put on. The vest helps the bra do its job, keeping everything in shape, improving your posture and relieving the pressure on your back so that it doesn’t hurt. The long leg panty takes a big longer to put on as it has so many hooks! It kinda reminds me of a corset women used to wear in the past, only that while those could be harmful to your health, this one helps to improve your posture and your shape. And it lifts your bum too! And if you need to use the bathroom, don’t worry. The long leg panty has a hole in the crotch for bathroom convenience. Here’s the after photos, but they don’t do them justice. In real life, my posture and shape look much better.
Of course, you shouldn’t expect results overnight. The shapewear helps improve your posture from the minute you wear it because they force you to stay straighter. But it takes time to see any long-term improvements, which is why you should wear them every day or, at least, as often as possible. And it meantime, it will greatly improve your appearance. Even my boyfriend remarked on how improved my body shape is when I wear Braologie shapewear (although I’m not sure I should take that as a compliment… Mmm…). And when you look good, you also feel good. Overall, I’m in love with Braologie and I would recommend it to anyone with posture problems or who’s having a hard time finding a good-fitting bra. You won’t regret it.

Braologie shapewear forces you to stay straight, thus helping to improve your posture. The bra lifts your breasts, makes them look fuller, relieves pressure from the back so that it doesn’t hurt and gives great support. The mini vest helps it to do its job, while the long leg pantry shapes your body, lifts your bum and helps posture. It also features a hole in the crotch for bathroom convenience. Despite the time it takes to put it on, which is due to the many hooks it has, and the initial discomfort you feel when you wear the products for the first time, I’m in love with Braologie. Their shapewear really helps to improve your posture and gives you a great silhouette.
