    Biggest Loser Shapewear. There is a sad irony that a show about weight loss, fitness and health lends it name to a product meant to help you shimmy into too small clothes.

    Just in case you haven't had time to abuse your body into thinness before your next big event!

    Hmm... for people who have lost weight very fast in accordance with "Biggest Loser" diet policies (near zero fat, severe caloric restriction, hours of cardio daily, and dehydration methods for special event days) and need to get that excess skin and sag under control... or just hold their poor abused bodies upright!

    jennarose- that's my experience too. you basically need an entire body suit, and then you can't breathe. but at least your body looks void of bumps!!

    my body looks bumpy and squishy, even without underwear. i don't think it's a weight thing.

    Good God! Can you imagine how much those things would make you sweat? Gross. I would be miserable wearing anything like that and I'm not sure how they can stand it on the show. I didn't notice if they had shapewear for men.

    I wore the bike shorts shapewear (not their version but the Sears special) and a boned bustier under my dress for Twibble's wedding. I tried to burn the bike shorts and they wouldn't catch fire! They had so damn much silicon and non fabric materials that I could put them in an open flame and they'd kill the fire. The bustier I kept on hand because it could be useful in a Halloween costume.
    But yeah, all they do is roll down and become useless. Even if you layer them like I did, it doesn't help.

    That's why some sadist also invented... shapewear with shoulder straps!

    Trust me, my tits and chest really don't need to be sucked in. It's my hips and belly that would theoretically need the abuse. Not because of lumps and bumps (although I'm sure some twit would disagree with me), but because form fitting dresses do not allow for both hips and an ass. Well, that and my belly will never be supermodel flat (I'm just not built like that.)

    The only one I've ever worn looks like a bathing suit and I wore it for a dance competition. (When the dress is spandex, it's a requirement) It worked, it didn't move, but after not long the boning in the torso warped and dug the crap out of my ribs.

    I can't ever remember whether it's pain is beauty or beauty is pain?
