I Tried Both Honeylove And Spanx So You Don’t Have To
Editor’s note: After feeling self conscious for a while I decided to invest in Spanx. I was surprised when they weren’t as effective as I expected they’d be. Then my friend recommended Honeylove, so I tried their SuperPower Shorts. Read this to see how the two brands compare…
My Life Before Discovering Honeylove
I’ve been feeling self conscious for a while — I have piles of clothes from 2 years ago that don’t fit like they used to. I had to do something about it, so I checked out Spanx.
I’d never bought shapewear before but who hasn’t heard of Spanx? I was sure they’d be the answer to my wardrobe woes so I ordered their OnCore High-Waisted Mid-Thigh Short since they’d cover my main problem area.
My order arrived just before I was heading out to a BBQ I was going to that evening. I put them on expecting to feel a big difference — and although they were good quality — they weren’t what I thought they’d be.
They felt sort of like swimsuit material and didn’t hold me “in” as much as I needed. They made my new jumpsuit look a bit more flattering, so I wore them. That night, I ended up having to go to the bathroom a few times to re-adjust myself. The Spanx kept rolling down – I don’t have to tell you this is not ideal when you’re sporting a jumpsuit!
When venting to one of my girl friends, she told me about a brand that she swears by: Honeylove. She was wearing them that evening and said they were so comfy — I must say, she looked incredible. Her confidence was beaming!
I checked out Honeylove myself to see if it would really be worth investing in — I doubted they’d be any better than Spanx. But after reading many reviews, I ordered the SuperPower Shorts — and the rest is history.
My Life After Discovering Honeylove
Honeylove specializes in Sculptwear, and boy do these shorts sculpt your body — I had no idea my waist could be this compact! Yet, they felt so comfortable. But — as I discovered from my Spanx disappointment — the only way to put the Honeylove SuperPower Shorts to the test was to wear them out all night long.
And when I did I didn’t have to fix them once. The short uses flexible boning so there’s no pinching or poking. Targeted compression sculpts in all the right places and prevents roll-down. It literally smoothes everything and feels totally breathable at the same time.
Thanks to Honeylove’s brilliant sizing quiz, these shorts are the perfect fit. The first night I wore them out, I got so many compliments I felt more comfy — therefore confident! — than I have in a long time.
They’re so relaxing I can wear them to the office. Despite my far less-than ergonomic chair, my SuperPower Shorts stay put, and don’t grind against my spine like other shapewear I’ve had. I feel so confident when delivering presentations now!
Considering how effective Honeylove’s SuperPower Shorts are, you’d expect them to be pricey, but they’re truly affordable at just $89.
Ever since I bought the SuperPower Short I feel like I can pull off any look. I’ve even unearthed some dresses and pieces that I haven’t worn in a long time. But when I’m wearing Honeylove they look fantastic on me.
It's Honeylove’s SoftFlex structure that beats out Spanx, which ensures comfort. Not to mention the mesh details and X design that make Honeylove feel sexier! Plus the sturdy side-boning stops them from rolling down.
Since Honeylove gives you 20% off a second item, I stocked up recently and ordered the LiftWear Cami and the EverReady Pant. I’m really excited for them to arrive.
