Hello all! So I was contacted by Vedette Shapewear a while back to do another review for them. To say the least, I was really excited by reviewing some more pieces by them. I absolutely loved my first pieces of shape wear and was sure I would like my new choices. The pieces I chose to review were the Judith bodysuit and the Noelle bodysuit in nude. Today I'm going to be talking about the Noelle.
The Noelle body suit has molded cups and a bikini shaped bottom, and the best part about the Noelle is that she has a hook and eye closure (similar to a bra) at the bottom. This feature makes it easy to adjust the body suit to fit your butt perfectly. Also at the straps are removable where it connects to the molded cups. This makes it easy to adjust the straps to fit comfortably. Now, just like with the shapewear I received from them before, I expected to do some shimmying to get into it, which I did. Once it was on, it was smooth sailing. Now the challenge was to pick my fave color, choose shapewear in that color, and style it as outerwear. At first I thought, my fave colors are pink, yellow, and green. I don't think I wanna style shapewear in those colors since I barely wear those colors. So I decided that since I like blush, I would choose what's closest to it (nude) and style those accordingly. Also choosing nude gives you more options to pair your shapewear with for outwear purposes. And it makes it great to put under pieces (white fitted dresses, anyone) that may be a tad bit see-through.
I styled the Noelle two ways. One for the demure and the other for the not so demure. For the first look, I put a black shirt underneath to tone the sexiness of the bodysuit down and only used one necklace. The top also helps make Noelle wearable during fall. The second option was without the black top. Now, I'm not the most comfortable showing off my cleavage, so not to feel naked, I added another necklace to the outfit. The layering of necklaces gives me the illusion of a covered décolletage.
Anyhow, I love the overall look of the Noelle. I also see myself using the Noelle under a few sweater dresses that I have. So what do you guys think of Noelle?
