Slimming Undergarments | Shapewear


Hey awesome ones are you still hiding
under over sized clothes or maybe just black clothing. Hey I was doing that too
and I did it for a long long time and then I discovered some slimming ideas
and I thought to myself you know what I’m going to do a few videos on how to
work your clothing for slimming and trimming and it really really helped me.
But I thought I’d start this one well let’s just start with the undergarments
what lies underneath and it all starts in just a few seconds. So I’ve got a
whole basket full of things to show you. I’m so excited and there’s all kinds of
things if your body shape has changed let’s say since you were in your 20s. Now
for most of us yeah that’s what’s happening and if you’re still wearing…
let me see if I can get these in the the photograph over here a little bit or in
the video I should say. If you’re wearing sort of skimpy little underwear like
this and maybe a bra that’s too small for you you’re going to get that muffin
top. You’re going to get a few things that no wonder you’re hiding under the
oversized clothes. Hey we’re a little curvier now and let’s see what we can do
about those curves. So these undergarments they really
helped me get support and structure for my body type. Now and I don’t have to
resort to wearing like muumuu dresses and hiding underneath everything. I can
wear something a little bit slimmer because I’m wearing these and it just
helps me with my look to feel and look more youthful. Now first of all what I’m
going to do is show you two kinds of clips of me and yeah I’m kind of brave
to do this but I really want to show you the difference that undergarments make.
So let’s take a look right here…… and as you can see I’m in my little
black dress and one of the photos has me with the slimming undergarments and the
other one does not. And just in case you think I’m breathing in no I’m not
breathing in. I’m trying to do the same kind of breaths for both of them. But
let’s just take a look. I’m going to get to this in a minute and what a bra can
do for you and you can see that under my arms there’s little rolls here. I
don’t have them with the other bra that’s kind of bringing everything in
also you can see my tummy here. If I’m wearing those kind of skimpy bikini you
know underwear what I’m going to have is I’m going to have some well let’s call
it the old muffin top here and I’m not going to have it if I’m wearing
something that’s not uncomfortable but basically bringing me in a little bit
more a little bit of shapewear and yeah. In the two outfits you can really really
see the difference. Alright so let’s start with some shapewear and it’s all
about the shape all about the shape. These look like ugly granny panties but you
know what these actually work. And I’m wearing the black pair underneath me
right now but I wanted to show you some of my top items that I really really
love. I found something that doesn’t roll down. I found this out the hard
way. I went to a gala and I was wearing those briefs and when I was standing up
and sitting down and dancing oh my gosh I got the dreaded roll down. Started
rolling down underneath my dress and then of course my waist was like three
times wider which is not what you want with shapewear. So I found something that
I think is better for a lot of those times when you’re doing a lot of moving
around and I hope you can see this. It’s the one piece…Bill can everybody see
that?… Okay alright, awesome and the one piece that I have here I absolutely love
it because it has a cut out for my own bra. So I don’t need to
worry about Oh the waist is too short or I can just sort of put my own bra in
there and then the rest of it just sort of flows down. And that brings me to my
next item which is the bra with side panels.
So most bras just have a very small little side panel like this and we’re
all used to that. However if you find the right bra like I did to kinda…well you
know what I’m talking about, that underarm stuff. You’re going to find
something that’s on the market that has a wider kind of side panel like this. Now
let’s just take a look at them if I can do this side-by-side. I can make this
happen absolutely. So you can see the difference here between the…Bill can you
see the difference there between the two? All right this is just not hiding
anything and this one has a much nicer side panel. Now you can get that in a
regular bra, you can also find something in a you know something like this which
is…a let me go over here…sports bra. Which again has the wider panels on the
side. Now the other thing that you need to do is you make…you’ve got to make
sure that you get measured as well around the…well right around here and a
lot of times we think well I know I’m a 34b. Well hey guess what? You’re probably
not a 34B anymore. I found out like I was a 38 and I went
whoa, but now I don’t have those kind of muffin tops around my bra at the back and
y’all know what I’m talking about. So find yourself a good a lingerie store
even Victoria’s Secret just say to them look I really need a bra with panels to
hide this kind of something-something here. I also want to be measured to
make sure that my circumference is right, the cup size is right and they will take
the time to do this. And you’re going to spend at least an hour or so but at the
end you get yourself a great bra that’s going to
make you look slimmer make you feel more confident and hey it fits. Now what I’m
going to do is I’m going to make sure that I link a lot of the shapewear and
the products that I’m talking about below. And we make a little bit of
Commission on that and it really helps us to keep making these videos so thanks
a lot if you do buy through the links. But one thing I’m not going to do is I’m not going to link any bras because I really encourage you to go out and get
the fittings. I would rather have you get the right thing than us just link to
something that’s going to be totally wrong for you. So make sure you look
after yourself and get that done. So let’s talk about the briefs and I’m not
going to keep it pretty. All right Bill I kind of feel sorry for you behind the
camera here because of my granny panties. And yeah you know sometimes I might
might wear a pair like this under a high-rise jeans and I’ll show you that
in a minute or under a control top kind of pair of tights and again I’ll show
you that in a minute, but yeah for the most part I’m wearing the granny panties
and what I love about these…I don’t know if you can see them okay but they’re
very very lightweight and they also are light enough and seamless enough to wear
underneath some of that shapewear that I showed you. So they don’t have their own
roll sort of speak they also have a nice cotton gusset in them as well so you can
get these in all different colors. I really like the beige because they go
with everything. But you know we’ve we’ve got to…when our
shape starts to change…these high rises just help to tuck everything in. They
also help us with our muffin top and I gotta tell you you know I’m 64 years old
right now and I was a former model and for me
confidence is the key. I know that. I’m not going to be as slim as I was
when I was modeling and I gotta tell you when I was modeling I was bulimic. So
don’t want to go back there. I want to stay healthy. I want to stay kind of
youth fulfilling and I want to look good and all of this shapewear and
undergarments they really really help with that. So stay healthy and let’s get
to the next one. And hey if you’re kind of liking these videos I would love you
to subscribe to the channel and come on back by clicking on the bell that way
you’ll be notified whenever the videos are out. I got about three more bonus
ones for you. I thought I’d finished the script and then I went no I can add some
more to it. And the number one thing you’ve heard me talk about this before
is the lightweight camisole. I’ll try to put this up here…hopefully you can see
it…look at how thin this is and I’ve got these in all different…as a matter of
fact I’m wearing one underneath this right now and it helps to keep me slim and also if I
get the dreaded role down in my top I’m covered there. But yeah these are made by
jockey and again we’ll put the links below.
They are absolutely fabulous. You don’t even know you’re wearing them. I wear
them underneath something when I’m bike riding for goodness sakes and you know
it’s really really nice. So that’s one. The other one is for fall or winter or
spring. Get yourself a pair of tights that are higher wasted or maybe a
control top and you know don’t go for anything in the bikini kind of look you
can also do this…maybe you want a black pair of hose but pantyhose so this will
really help you with that. And of course this one was another one that I thought
I would add and it is the high rise jeans. I think it says right on there
the high rise and it’s also stretchy they’re so fantastic. I absolutely love
them, but as you can see with the high rise I don’t know if you can tell here
I’ll kind of move up a bit, but it’s keeping my my tummy and everything
pushed in. So if I did want to wear a pair of those kind of slinky underwear
if you know what I mean I got myself covered with this. You know I do these
kind of videos…… i’m kinda showing things that I really
wouldn’t…I’m trying to be brave for all of you but you are my virtual friends
and I just I love it when you have comments and you’re talking to me about…..
Hey you know what? If you’ve got some other ideas for slimming please put them
in the comments. Let’s all share this and let’s help each other be confident and
feel youthful and absolutely awesome. There’s somebody else who’s a virtual
friend to a lot of you and I’m gonna bring him out in just a second. So here
he is. Our little Hurricane. Hey Hurricane. And when Hurricane comes on the scene I’m reminded to talk to you
about upcoming videos. Frst of all we are so inspired that a lot of you are
going to our new second….sorry did I wake you up? Going to our new second channel
and that’s over at awesome over…er… Youtube.com/AwesomeOver50inspiration
hey we’re talking about tech gadgets, we’re talking about exercise,
food and even some travel in there as well some places that we’ve been that we
really want you to take along and share with. And on this our Beauty Channel I’m
trying out some new skincare and I’m not just sort of slapping it…I’m trying it
on for a long time see if it’ll work and then I want to really share it with you.
So that’s coming up, but I want to talk to you about something. You know we are
almost at 70,000 subscribers and I…you know for Bill and I…I don’t know and
little Hurricane probably as well…it means so much to us. You know
when I started this beauty channel a lot of people were saying…it was about two
years ago…they were like are you kidding me like that’s just for 20 year olds.
Nobody wants to learn about makeup from an older woman. Well guess what? You’re
all proving them wrong because I feel that people are the same age want to
learn from somebody at the same age and we just…let’s face it we don’t have the
same skin as a lot of 20 year olds so thank you so much from the bottom of my
heart for being here…for subscribing. You know
you’re getting products I really really appreciate it and I’m planning to be
here for a long long time. So in the meantime and until we meet again,
you are the awesome ones. You are the awesome ones. Thank you!

  2. You are so awesome Heather,I am also 64 years and Iam learning from you a lot ! Thank you ! Greetings from Austria

  3. Thank you SO MUCH for your brave videos. I love them and they have boosted my confidence so much. Plus you have a Yorkie! Me too!

  4. Hey Heather Great info there but if I could just ask I've never bought shapewear (but I need it now lol) when you buy it do you buy your normal size or a smaller size to pull you in? I hope you dont mind me asking I'm a little confused (& embarrassed 😊) xx You really are awesome ❤

  5. Thanks for the tip on high rise jeans. I couldn’t find slacks I liked, all geared towards the younger crowd. I will check them out on Amazon.

  6. Thank you! Going to my 45 th HS reunion and ofcourse I want to look my best. Thank you for your makeup tips and slimming tricks! You're awesome!

  7. Yes! Seems age has generously brought me a belly paunch that I am not sure will tighten up! And it has made me think about better panties to hold me all together! : D I always have preferred cotton over nylon underwear, but I am ready to compromise to make my body look its best as possible at my stage in life. I am very interested in what I will be learning here today. Thank you for showing us!!! Take care!!

  8. Great gutsy video, Heather. Modern shapewear is really good, no torture necessary! I love your one piece – they give such smooth lines. On other topics, it's very helpful to learn about makeup from our own generation: it just makes sense. Also, your new channel is excellent, very enjoyable. Loved your recent trips to Paris, and London, and to the Carnival. Thank you, and Bill, very much. Love to our furry virtual friend. Have a great weekend. XOXO

  9. I’m a little too healthy right now. We have been staying with family, since moving. I have nothing to do. And I’ve gained weight. When we finally get into our new house I can lose the weight. But for now I’m just too healthy. I’m working on limiting myself. I’m sixty and I just don’t have the metbalism

  10. Love your videos… so informative… you are doing great… your confidence gives me more confidence to get out n be myself… thank you

  11. Hi Heather! Great bold video. Thank you! Could you please give a hint on the type of Jockey lightweight camisole you love to wear? The Amazon page lists different ones with different types of material. Which is best?

  12. 🌟Heather🌟 Thank you! I do own shapewear BUT I feel like I'm going to burst almost every time I wear them & I bought the best ( Macy's Maidenform & I think one that's totally name brand but forgot the name due to NOT wearing it much 🙄) ok I'm going to give it another try !! 💜💜💜kim

  13. Thank you for your Bravery!! LOL its a reality 😉 I used to be in such Amazing shape up until 8 years ago & it ALL slowly started going downhill after a diagnosis of spinal Stenosis plus fibromyalgia followed…. it sucks but I've gotten past that sucky part & embracing my new curvy body that is USUALLY covered by baggy comfy clothes 🙈🙈🙈 but its not a great look when going out & I'm tired of hiding!! Thanks again 💜🌟💜kim

  14. Hi Heather! I do love your hair and I was wondering if the colour is your natural colour. I’m 63 years old and I’ve been colouring my hair for a long time but, I’m getting fed up with it as it’s so much hassle. Can you please do some vids on maybe how to look good with grey hair or something in that direction. Lots of love from 🇬🇧

  15. Very good idea’s for the ladies who aren’t up to speed on these things. I think Nordstrom’s is the best place to get fitted for a bra and their bra’s may seem expensive but will last a long time-if you take care of them. I also have ordered from Third Love & their bra’s are great, some with nice wide straps. Also ordered the Vanishing Back bra from Soma and that has been wonderful for those clingy knit tops, like you showed. I just ordered a strapless bra from Lively but very impressed & unlike Third Love, you can’t return it if you’ve worn it, something I failed to check out! I looked at your all in one body suit & May order that. Nice under a clingy dress. Anyway, just some recommendations for you and your readers.

  16. I am so in love with you for being upfront and humorous about all these topics that no one talks about..let alone share!!! Blessings for you and little Hurricane too!

  17. Great video Heather ! Do you think the one piece shapewear would work under a stretchy fitted long dress ? It's my mother of the bride dress and I want it to be as smooth as possible. Congratulations on your growing subscribers ! I love your show and have learned so much from you and Bill !

  18. Hi 👋! Thank you so very much! I am 64 years old too and my figure flaws have me hiding in my home. You are a true inspiration. When I was younger I was very tall and skinny. Not so much now!!!

  19. Hi Heather: GREAT TOPIC…thank you! Now that everything's "gone south", I need different undergarments. I'm working on that now. I had to try the "no side effects" bra, because I looked droopy in my usual bra, and the underarm fat was visible. Ugh. I need to get a few of them. It's so weird how many changes these menopausal bodies go through! You three have a wonderful weekend! Rosemarie xo 🌹

  20. Thanks for helping us & for being brave. I feel so much better knowing that i have the same problems that a fabulous model does. Thank you!

  21. Hi Heather, in a world where beauty and fashion are geared toward the younger ladies, I'm so thankful for your channel and the tips you give to the older ladies. <3

  22. Hi Heather, thanks very much for uploading this video, I've always wanted to get myself some shapewears, but all I had got over the years were either lemons (as you mentioned that won't stay up but roll down after few movements) or I found they were way too tight for my liking 🙁
    It could possibly be the shapewears I bought in the past were not as expensive as the ones that truly work (I'm more a K-mart and Target girl)…
    This video has given me one thought, the granny pannies I have been wearing for the past whatever years are comfortable, but they are not shapewears, so my tummy is still "out".
    Thanks again for being brave for your viewers 🙂
    God bless!

  23. Hi Heather what a wanderfull web site and you re amazing.I have 68 and i thoughed that my life is finished cause the cult of young women. Your attitude is kind a miracle for me , you really save my life…thank you for bieng "so in details" .big hugs from Serbia Belgrade

  24. Awe….Hurricane is adorable! Speaking of hurricanes, I live in Florida (right in the path of most hurricanes 😄) and it is so hot and humid here that I sweat just stepping outside. Which products are best for eternal sweaters? I tried one of those shape wear products from online and it takes me about 1/2 hour just to put it on. Needless to say, I don’t wear it. But I’m trying to find something lightweight, easy to put on, that doesn’t raise your internal temperature to 150 degrees! P.S. you look great!

  25. There are 66 comments, and I'm 66 yrs old, but nearly 67, so I'm your 67th comment! 🙂
    I'm a new subscriber!
    I love makeup, and looking nice, so let's go! Shapewear, here I come!
    You're fun, beautiful, and awesome! I'm glad I found you & your tutorials.. Good job! 💕

  26. I have shapewear Heather, but not the brands that you are recommending…every time I go to wear it, I am so 😣 uncomfortable…thanks for sharing Heather, and I and going to try some of the brands that you like! Great video ☺️💕‼️

  27. You are so cheerful and beautiful Heather….you make my day! I did not own any shapewear until I was 64 and I still don't wear it. I just get mad and do more situps….but oh boy….it's time, yes it is!!! xxoo

  28. Heather, you're so pretty. Thank you for this undergarment topic. You're so right, I'm a size 10 in jeans, and I just want to maintain my weight. Losing too much at our age sometimes is not face flattering.

  29. I love this video!!! For me, the cute undies go with the cute nighties just for my hunny lol!
    I think you are wonderful for doing this video. You're showing what a real woman might look like. Not all women look the same! But it seems most women DO have body image issues

  30. Hey Heather! This was great! Last week I ordered a bunch of yummy tummy shapewear and I just ordered the one piece from your link on Amazon. Thank you so much! Very helpful! I'm 65 and small but my body has so changed! I went to Soma and got measured and was totally shocked! Xo

  31. This video is fantastic! Thank you for being so open and upfront. Love your humor also. You are like a girlfriend! I tried shapewear once and I was so uncomfortable. I definitely will try again……very sick of oversized tops.

  32. Hey poppet, sooo good to see this video today, up to six months ago I was a 42 inch f cup bra size, now I'm still 40dcup because of 28lbs weight loss due to having very high cholesterol… But have been wearing genie bras and the fantastic aah bra which is soo supportive and has a thick side panel and a thick back panel where no wiggling and jiggling takes place!!!! And 1955 was a great year, as my birth year too. Love u Heather paula in the UK xx

  33. Enjoyed slenderizing under garments. Yes, we can’t help gravity… especially if you have had children, and lost the weight! Thank you for tips!
    I DO wear wider panel bras, and you are so Right!
    I subscribed!

  34. Wow! You are so brave telling about your underwear. I was bullimic too for almost 12 years, but now I'm 52 and even though I would like to be skinnier I haven't felt as good and confident before and not even when I was young, thin and beautiful. 💕🌸

  35. Thank you for being brave 🙂 I am 65 and never thought there would come a day I would be purchasing shape wear. . . . .BUT here I am! Things do indeed shift as we age. Love your information.

  36. Hi Heather: I'm not certain if you've already done this (please let me know if you have ), but, I could use some guidance. We always hear about having a "capsule wardrobe", the basic "building blocks" to dress up (or down), in our wardrobes. As someone who doesn't love shopping, I wonder if you could do a future video on the absolute "basics" for us mature gals. Your tips and advice are on point and always much appreciated, and you never make us look frumpy. Thank you! Rosemarie 🙂 xo

  37. Thanks for a great video on a subject we girls need to know about. I'm plus-size, so it is hard to find anything decent in my size. I have found some though and I wouldn't be without my shape-wear! TFS

  38. Guess what.. probably you are not 34b anymore! Hilarious!
    Well, you are still modeling in a way! Even in those Granny panties of yours💖
    It is all really about confidence! I mean I only wear those "keep it there" stuff just to feel confident about the shape of my body.. and yessss clothing is all about confidence!

    L💖ve from hot Egypt 🇪🇬🇪🇬🇪🇬
    It is so hot to wear such garments, yet I just love to👍👍👍

  39. Hi Heather! This is a great video!! Wearing the right shape wear does help us girls with our curves!! I am so happy for you and Bill on your seventy~ thousand subscribers!! You and Bill work hard on all of your videos and you both deserve the recognition of all of your wonderful efforts that you both put forth!! Congratulations!! I love watching them and will continue too!! You're an awesome couple and Hurricane is awesome too!!!❤️❤️❤️

  40. Would have been nice to hear at least the brand of bras. I’ve been looking for the smoothing side panel bras but having a hard time finding a G or GG cup size in that type of bra. Sharing the brand would be nice. 😁
