Superboost … a lingerie dream …

Superboost … a lingerie dream …

For some time now, I’ve been searching for a shaping slip to wear beneath figure hugging dresses.  Something that smooths away those love handles and enhances my waist without being overly restrictive.  I have many that fit the bill, but none that look particularly sexy.
Then I saw the Gossard Superboost Slip Dress and snapped it up that very day!

I ordered the 36G with some reservations that the skirt would be too small, yet I really needn’t have worried.  The skirt was snug but fitted around my hips with just the littlest bit of wiggling.  I wore this under slip out last night and the skirt didn’t roll up once – which is a problem that I have with almost all under slips!
The bra gave my boobs a wonderful full rounded shape that made me feel very voluptuous and incredibly sexy.  The cups are supportive and with the straps attached I could easily wiggle about without any worry of spillage. The bra, despite appearances, is also adjustable with the back band of traditional bra hiding beneath the zip of the back and offering 3 different sizing options.

The gold zip at the back looks fantastic but is very sturdy.  It takes a while fasten and isn’t the easiest on your own, but it holds beautifully once you’re secured in (I was worried that is would slip down over the course of the evening but it held fast straight through till the early hours).

Although not sold as shape wear, the slip does really enhance my figure.  The subtle panelling of the skirt are very supportive and the transition to the lace bodice really nips in the waist.  Both my tummy and hips feel smoother and look much neater beneath a tight fitted dress.
What I love most about this slip is the lace – it’s subtle, demure, and revealing all at once.   The lace lends that slip a very vintage and made me feel rather like climbing into a martini glass for my best impression of Dita Von Teese – although what else would you expect from a brand that bought us the divine Retrolution?
The slip is priced at £54 and is worth every penny as the detailing is perfection!
I bought the thong in XL which is generously sized and looks as great as the slip itself!
I should also point out that the straps are removable … unfortunately, I didn’t feel it was supportive enough to so, meaning I will not be wearing this slip as a strapless solution.
Have you found any great lingerie finds lately?

    This looks fabulous on you!

    Is the dress opaque enough to be worn as outerwear?

    How tall are you/what length is it? I always find things are too short on my frame as I'm so tall but I'd be keen to try this out – it's so gorgeous!

    Thank you 🙂

    The skirt is opaque, as it the bra, but the lace on the bodice is sheer.

    I'm 5ft10 and it comes to mid-thigh or, as I like to put it, a work-acceptable-mini-skirt-length!
