If you’re like me, your outfits regularly include not only a bra but also a slip or camisole as well. That’s great in the winter – more layers means more warmth, after all. But that’s the very problem in the summer when you only want to stay cool and dry! That’s why the Va Bien ultra-Lift Smooth Solutions 2-in-1 products are so great. Available in a cami or a slip, these garments work as both a bra and as a smoothing layer. This is perfect not only for keeping cool, but for reducing the actual number of garments you need to buy. They feature a microfiber body as well as the patented ultra-Lift cups, which each require a 15-minute multi-step molding process to gain their shaping and uplifting power (the industry standard is to mold foam cups in seconds with a single step, as we saw in the Bra Business video).
Greg Gimble, Vice President of Va Bien, says of these products,
“Traditionally, Va Bien shapewear features firm control and is designed for wear under special occasion dresses. However, with today’s form-fitting fashions and the introduction of shapewear to the general public, everyday shapewear has become something quite common. It is with this in mind that we designed the ultra-Lift Cami and Slip. You don’t have to be going to a special event to wear shapewear anymore – new lightweight undergarments can be worn everyday for a nice smooth look, and now with the ultra-Lift Cami and Slip, women can shape their bustline perfectly at the same time.”
One thing I really like about these Va Bien styles as opposed to other similar products is that these actually come in real, honest-to-goodness bra sizes. You buy the Va Bien ultra-Lift Smooth Solutions products in 34B, 36D, 38E, etc. instead of Small, Medium, and Large. You guys know how picky I am about wearing bras that fit correctly, so it would be a definite deal-breaker for me if these didn’t come in defined bra sizes.
The camisole and slip are priced at $65 and $79, respectively. You can buy the camisole from the Va Bien website right now, and the slip will be available on June 1.
