Shining Through The Holidays With Maidenform Shapewear

It’s officially Party Season! There are articles, posts, and advertisements everywhere for that super glam holiday makeup and those chic party outfits– there’s nothing better than feeling like a million bucks at a fab Holiday fête! But for me (like most of my fellow women), feeling great isn’t just about hair, makeup, or a designer label– but also about how flirty and fit we feel in our party dress.

Welp.  I just had a baby six weeks ago.  And though I’ve been working at shedding my “Baby Body” in a healthy and natural way, I still don’t feel completely like myself.  If I’m honest, my clothes don’t really fit the same either.  Since Major is my second child, I’m dealing a lot more with droopy skin, jigglyness, and other not-so-fabulous-feelings after this pregnancy.  And like any woman, I struggle a lot with wanting to love myself with every new curve, and also wanting to feel like my pre-baby self.  I want to feel empowered in my form no matter what my body is going through, but sometimes we all need a little extra help on that mission.  This year I’m getting my Holiday Season mojo back with Maidenform Shapewear! I can honestly say that I’d never really worn shapewear before– I just imagined that it didn’t really work or that it would look strange underneath my clothes.  Boy, was I wrong.  And now I’m HOOKED.  Maidenform is one of the oldest and most lauded shapewear and undergarment companies– that has been perfecting its products for decades.  Not only does Maidenform know a woman’s body better than anyone, but they are creating a fabulous product that is available at a really affordable price point.  And I am majorly down with that.  Let’s enable all women to wear shapewear if they want to, for Pete’s sake!

Eva Amurri Martino shows her favorite three pieces from the Maidenform shapewear collection

My favorite Maidenform shapewear pieces are the Luxe Back Smoothing bra, Smooth Seamless Hipster, and the Endlessly Smooth Foam Cup Slip. When I first put on my Maidenform Smooth Foam Cup Slip, it’s how I imagine Wonder Woman felt when she first slipped on that cape.  All of a sudden, my sass was back! In spades. I felt like I was standing taller, that my body was stronger– and that I looked MORE buxom actually, not “skinnier” per se. It’s that “Boom, Boom, POW” we are always chasing. I just felt like a Woman again– and for somebody who has been covered in spit-up and diaper cream for the past six weeks, that is a pretty big deal.

The slip is so comfy, but has enough firm pressure in its stretch to feel like it is holding you in a totally confidence-boosting embrace.  No jigglyness here, fellas.  More than anything, I just love that it gives me the poise to stand tall and let my personality shine at all those Holiday parties.  Kind of like when you’re walking in to a work meeting and know for sure that you have perfectly minty-smelling breath, that your hair is on point– and that your biz presentation is even better. THAT feeling.  The slip also has a built in underwear part that is so genius, making it impossible for the slip to ride up under your dress or skirt. Additionally (and importantly), I seriously applaud the lift and separation the top part gives my post-baby boobs (which will gladly take all the help they can get), and the straps that allow you to manipulate the top to correspond with any type of dress or blouse.

I as soon as I put on my new Foam Cup Slip, I instantly knew the dress that I wanted to pair it with: a stunning, silver body-con sparkler that I had worn to Holiday parties pre-kids– but that always looked a little “not right” ever since.  I knew that this shapewear would be just the ticket for getting me back in to one of my favorite pre-baby Holiday favorites in style.  I felt so retro and glamorous getting my hair and makeup ready in my sassy little slip.  My husband actually walked by my Glam Room and said “Wow, that’s a sexy dress!” Ha! I’m sure if he had it his way I’d have one in every color and wear them to dinner.  After applying my hair, makeup, and jewelry, it was time for the moment of truth…

…And my old dress fit! I loved feeling my new, womanly curves poured in to one of my favorite clothing pieces.  I did have a little chuckle thinking about how different my life was the last time I had worn this dress.  Am I old enough that I can call it vintage? Ha! I love that with Maidenform Shapewear I now have a super fabulous tool in my arsenal to help me shine through this fun, festive season– inside and out!  Because when I’m feeling confident, my happiness shines out of every part of my face like high beams.  And as my favorite Audrey Hepburn quote so appropriately states, “Happy girls are the prettiest girls.”

update:

Congratulations to Sava, who won the Maidenform Smooth Foam Cup Slip!!   I wanted to say how extremely moved I was by all of the entries below.  It brings tears to my eyes to hear so many women taking the time to illuminate a physical feature (or more than one!) that they are proud of and to share it loud and proud.  There were so many inspiring stories, and it was impossible to just choose one.  I’m brainstorming now to see if there’s a way to make this kind of sharing a more active part of the Happily Eva After community, because it really is what makes this all worth it.

If you shared below THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! Things like this are more than just winning Shapewear, they are about empowering ourselves and each other and knowing it’s OK to want to feel good about ourselves as Women and Moms! I salute each and every one of you, and I’m so appreciative to have your voice on my site.

    Silver shiny gorgeousness! If only clothes could talk, I bet they have a better memory than I have. Now hmm about celebrating body parts I guess my small waist and compact boobs and if i’m honest my big bum aswel as it’s never cold 🙂 it could réally do with a bit of a holiday season lift though.
    Wonderful post putting me right into a festive mood and that on a Monday!

    I’m seven weeks post baby boy myself, and as you mentioned, things are a bit different in the shape department the second time around… but I want to love and celebrate every part of me that got me to this point. With two miscarriages after my first baby, i wondered if my body was letting me down. But after bringing another big healthy baby into the world, I know my strength.

    I am a proud mama to 4 crazy and wonderful kiddos – 8, 7, 2 and 12 weeks. I know that postpartum feeling well, where nothing fits, and you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin, but I can honestly say that shapewear gives you that little extra boost to wear the clothes that make you feel like you. It makes me remember that I am a strong, amazing woman that brought four beautiful babies into this world.

    I like my legs and honestly I really like my face! That’s a part of the body, right? I remember the first time I bought a piece of shapewear–there was a dress I HAD to have, but they only had it in one size, and it just a tiny bit too tight. I figured I’d give the shapewear a try, what could it hurt? I left the store with that stunning dress and the shapewear, which I called my squeezy-top. I wore it to a party and felt like a million bucks. This slip looks perfect!

    Being Latina, I never had the Latin booty. I had a booty alright, but not the coveted J Lo junk in the trunk fabulousness.

    Once I had my son I noticed the butt of my jeans and bathing suit bottoms weren’t fitting the same anymore. I was upset at first because I just blamed myself for not losing enough weight. But once I started looking at clothes that suited my new body I realized – wow! My booty looks good and I need to celebrate that.

    True that every woman has their insecurities, but I have to say I love my curves. What also helps me when I’m having one of “those” days is some makeup and a great lip! Often when I’m putting on my makeup, my 2 year old daughter is right by my side. There is nothing better than hearing her little voice say, “mommy looks so pretty!” It’s enough to brighten any day!

    I’ve recently gained a bit of weight (I’m blaming my boyfriend), so it’s been hard recently to find body parts that I’m proud of. If I have to choose, I would say my small waist! Even with a little weight gain, it’s something I can always count on 🙂

    I just had a baby also, and, if I’m honest, there’s not much I’m loving lately about my jiggly, stretch-mark-y, post-baby body. However, even when I’m feeling less at home in my skin, I still appreciate my delicate hands (tiny and fine-boned) and my incredible flexibility. I may have lost a lot of core strength due to my c-section, which makes getting back into my old yoga practice difficult, but while I’m building my core back up, I’m grateful for the space I can still find in my joints, especially my hips (I’ve always been super flexible). That space reassures me and helps me realize that, even if I never get my pre-baby strength back, I still have a lot to love about my physical form. Creating that flexibility and space mentally is good for my soul too!

    I use to count calories and be at the gym for hours, but after I had my son I stopped all that! I found a routine that works for me and my family, andathiuhh my body has changed I’m stronger then I have ever been before. I may be jiggly, but I can lift all 30lbs of him easily and I’m proud of that! Shapewear would be a godsend for a little extra confidence around the holidays when I know I will be indulging!

    For a long time I absolutely adored my belly. Firm, flat, muscles veyt visible… But, it’s not what it used to be (which sound very strange to me to say this at my age of 24 years :D), so now it’s my lips. I have vety big, juicy lips, kinda what every girl now feels like must have cause of Kylie. It not all fun, I use a lot of lip balms and other creams, peelings and stuff, but it’s all worth it when I pit on ted lipstick and go collect all the looks from all the men(I exxagerate of course). 😀 All in all i’m trying to love my body and feel good inside. 😉

    This amazing Maidenform Slip would do wonders on my post-first-two years of marriage curves. I’m hispanic, so I have always had a bit more in the hip/butt area.. Not that I’m complaining, but it would be great to have something to hold it all in place and really put that extra WOW factor in my holiday outfits.

    I have a really hard time being confident about my body. I have an hourglass shape, but like REALLY hourglass. Big boobs (you know the ones that Hollywood makes cool but are a pain in the back side in real life) and hips galore, and a big booty to top it off. It all sounds really great but I have had so much unwanted attention from it all that I have spent many a year trying to cover up my body rather than show it off; I’m afraid and a little ashamed of the body I’ve been given. I got my curves at a very young age, too young to be hit on in the grocery store and not take it to heart and develop a fear of the power of my body. Now I’m happily married to a wonderful man who thinks I’m the sexiest woman alive and I really wish I could feel the same way he does about my whole body. Maybe someday I will, I’m slowly starting to want to show off a little more and finding ways to be cool with my body, but it’s a slow process. I think right now my favorite thing about myself would have to be my eyes or my lips; both of them show off my inner happiness (and most of my sass) better than anything else about me.

    First Eva, I just have to say…you are amazing and beautiful!
    My whole life I’ve suffered with weight. I remember parties as an eleven year old, (yes, that young, boo hoo!) not daring to partake of the festivities (food) and joy because of my size. It dominated my teenage years until I finally starve-dieted myself thin. Time went by, and I gained it back. Then I had babies, and gained more weight. I’ve been through alot of ups and downs, and literally I’ve hated my body my whole life. But over the past two years, I came to realize how much my body has taken care of me, and how blessed I’ve been to be healthy and strong. It’s grown 4 babies, lost and gained weight 5 different times, and now that I’m 29, I can truthfully say that I love my body. Not because it’s perfect. I know I’ll never be “perfect “. But I can take this amazing gift and make it as perfect as is humanly possible. I’m no runway model, just an ordinary girl trying to accept myself as who I am, and making myself the best “me” possible. And I’m happy to say I’m currently 5 lbs away from being my ideal weight! I’m so excited! Now to tone…
    (Really it’s my husband who has been my cheerleader. He’s always loved me, no matter what size I was. But there was a moment one day when I was beating myself up over weight. I had lost 24 lbs of the 35 lb goal I had. He looked me in the eyes and said “babe, 3 months ago you would have given anything to be the weight you are right now. And now you’re here, and you’re not happy. Keep going, if thats what makes you happy, but you’re perfect to me, so realize that!” I was stunned. I really never had thought of it that way. So I’m embracing loving my imperfect self! So here’s to the future!)

    • I love your story, Sava! I’m so moved by your husband’s constant support of you, and the revelation he helped inspire– and so glad that you have finally come to enjoy yourself just as your are!
      I can definitely relate to the idea that we sometimes forget to honor where we are in the process, whether that be with weight struggles, parenting, or just life issues. I am very inspired by you!

      I would love for Maidenform to gift you this slip as a little reminder that you are beautiful TODAY!

      I will have them contact you directly. And as always, thank you so much for being a part of the Happily Eva After community!!!

    There are a couple of things I love about my body! Both are things I used to feel uncomfortable with, but have grown to appreciate. The first is my hips–they are large and shapely, but the way I can rest my hands on them makes me feel so womanly. The second is my gray hair — I’m only 29, and have had at least one silver hair since I was 12. It has become more widespread in the last few years, so now I like to refer to myself as a #silverfox! I have never died my hair, and never plan on it, because I love it so much!

    Oh man! I love this challenge! I am also obsessed with that dress. When it comes to celebrating my body, I have definitely been struggling with that the past few weeks, what with being 38 weeks pregnant and all. If you asked me 9 months ago what I love the most I would have told you my abs – I worked hard at them – but now that my stomach is carrying what feels like a baby dinosaur I think I have to say my curvy womanly features! I have a new found love for my hips and breasts – actually understanding their true purpose in life probably helps – but oh man, these babies can make a dress go from “meh” to “DAMN!”. So, thank you baby boy Drum for helping mama feel so good 🙂

    First want to say love reading your blog. You are so honest and real. You are also stunning. I have two children.

I even embrace the stretch marks and shaggy skin. However when i am dressing I don’t particularly like to see all the pregnacy gifts 🙂
    I would love to have shapewear that I can wear in confidence. I want to look in the mirror and not want to just wear a plastic bag. I am working hard to get my body back to where I feel confident to show off my shape. I would to wear shapewear that makes everything look smooth.

    Hi Eva!! As a mother of two beautiful boys (2 and 5) who works full time and does not always have a lot of time to work out, I can relate to not looking like I did pre kiddos! I would not change it for the world! My favorite part of my body is that it created my two children, every stretch mark and still lingering roll tells the journey of what my body went through. I am proud of it all, even my csection scar! I love my body more now than I did pre-baby.

I have to say, if I’m going to be stuck with some extra weight I am happy that it’s in some places I don’t mind it being 😝

    I had my son 16 months ago and my weight loss journey has been less of a journey and more of a lumpy, bumpy road to no where! I’ve never had to work at my body but I’ve realised now I’m going to have to and finding the motivation for that is really hard! One thing I have realised is the thing I love most about my body is that it created, grew, protected, fed and nourished by gorgeous boy and whilst it may not be ‘my easy to maintain’ pre-pregnancy, ‘everything sits where it should sit’ body, it’s the only one I’ll get and it’s done some pretty amazing things already!! So whilst it’s not the body I’m used to seeing in the mirror, I can look at it everyday and think- that is really something to be proud of!

    I’ve ALWAYS had curves that I loved to embrace and I have always been confident about. I also had three children and since then, I’m less and less confident about showing them off with the skin sagging. Date nights now consist of me wearing a tunic and leggings much to my husband’s dismay. 🙁 I have so many beautiful dresses I’d love to wear, but not with the skin jigglin! Date nights are few in far between, as two of my children suffer epilepsy and my oldest was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I’ve lived in sweat pants and t shirts the last few weeks and I could use the confidence boost. <3

    I have always had a booty and thick thighs. Ever since turning 30 earlier this year I have embraced their strength and their addition to my curves even more.

    I used to love my boobs pre-baby, but now they aren’t my favorite due to saggy skin. But now I love my stomach and weirdly enough my C-section scar!

    I had my first baby in September, and ever since then, I’ve felt my formerly full and perky breasts have become slightly sagging chew toys for baby girl. It’s been a bit hard to get used to not seeing them the way they were before baby, but at the same time, it’s been wonderful to be able to nurse my baby and develop that bond with her. However, given it’s her first Christmas this year, it would be so nice to have some extra help and support in that area of my body, so that when I look back at pictures of this season, I can smile and know I was feeling somewhat back to my old self.

    My curves, particularly my booty!!
    I love that even though I’m not the most fit I’ve ever been, I have more love for my body post-baby than I’ve ever had before!

    My favorite part of my body? My heart. It’s an amazing muscle – which survived an open heart surgery at 8 months old and two vaginal deliveries of my boys. No matter what I look like on the outside, I am always most proud of my heart for staying strong.

    I am almost 10 months out from having my first baby and I still am struggling to feel like my pre-baby self! I would love a little help this holiday season. I would say there is a lot to celebrate about my body, although I don’t always do a good job at it. Growing my son for 9 months and now being able to care for him, provide him with food, and give him tons of snuggles all day long, has been an incredible journey and has taught me how incredibly strong and powerful my body can be!

    I’m also struggling with my post partum body, but even though my belly has some flab, I’m so proud of what it accomplished!
