Hey Ladies, this is my first sponsored post, so please bear with me.  

I was asked to do a review on M&S Shape wear, i have never used control paints or spanx before as i find them a little claustrophobic but i was so excited about being asked that i jumped at the chance. 

I suppose i fall in to the Normal category for a UK women, My body shape is an hour glass and i am  a size 12 (occasionally a 10) on top but a 14 on the bottom. For as long as i can remember i have always been this shape, granted in my teens i was a couple of sizes smaller but still my lower half was always a size bigger than my top, which in my teens was awful but as an adult i have learned to love my shape and i embrace it. 

Back to the task in hand!
I was asked to use M&S shape wear  finder tool (here) , how the tool works is it asks you to answer 6 questions such as:

1) what would you like your shapewear to be? 
2) what's your body shape?
3) what's sizes do you usually wear (bra and dress)?
4) what level of support is right for  you?
5) does your shapewear need to be worn under a specific outfit?
6) what colour shapewear would you like?

Then it recommends the products based on your answers, i found the tool really useful and i played around with a couple of different outfit ideas in mind and it give me different recommendations each time.  If you are like me and don't know where to start with this type of thing then this tool is for you, really!

I decided on the tummy control slip as over Christmas i managed to put on 7lbs! Not good i know! and needed something to suck in my tummy. Below you can see the before and after pictures, i can see a difference but you decide. 

Can you see the difference? 

Dress - ASOS
Shoes - Iron Fist
Bag - River Island (it's my sisters)
