Meet The OverBra: Shapewear That Won’t Scare Your Guy

March 3, 2010 by Justine Schwartz

A lot of shapewear resembles sports wraps and granny panties–not something you want anyone to see. What do you do–change in the bathroom? Talk about spoiling a mood.

At first we were skeptical, but now that we’ve tried it we can tell you the Overbra works. Thanks to some serious nylon/spandex technology, each style below smoothes the tummy and hips while giving your bust a boost. There is even a breathable strip on the lower back for those of us who actually sweat. The best part is you won’t be embarrassed for your guy to see it, because it looks more like crazy lingerie than shapewear.

Our favorite style is the bust-shaping longline bra ($45), which is the perfect length to tuck into jeans, and leaves your old tank top in the dust.

Another brand-new style – body shaping slip ($50) – is great for gals with real curves to get some lift and support.

The original Overbra ($25) might look a little like a holster for your bust, but it comes off easily and is surprisingly comfortable.

Check out our guide to Spanx, and get a Spanx swimsuit for summer before they sell out.
