I Tried Honeylove. Here’s What Happened


A former rock groupie, l am so excited that this summer a lot of the bands I have known for over 20 years have reformed and are on tour right now. I  have an explosion of concerts and backstage reunions in the next few months.

So, it was time to plan out some hip rock chick outfits! After a long hiatus of not wearing pants, let alone tight dresses, there are pieces in my closet I’d love to wear that still fit but don’t look the same after two years of working out less.

All I wanted was a little shapewear to smooth everything out. But I tried that once and it was awful – I bought something from a department store and it was moving so much during the night, I ended up peeling it off my body and throwing it in the trash. It was so restrictive after I ate and kept rolling down.

I texted one of my group chats if anyone had any advice, and one girl said she’d tried every shapewear brand on the planet and was obsessed with Honeylove. I was wary of trying a new brand. But I had asked, so I took a look at the website. I liked that their models were of different shapes and sizes and that they really are size-inclusive, with sizes ranging from XS to 3X.

But ughhh, I dreaded doing the whole ordering-a-bunch-of-sizes-and-sending-them-all-back thing, until I saw their size quiz. You input your measurements, and they have explicit instructions on how to take your waist size, so it’s perfect. Even if I did choose the wrong size, they have 30-day free returns which is AWESOME!

Honeylove sells bodysuits, bras, tanks, briefs, shorts, and even shaping thongs. There’s something for every type of outfit. To start, I liked the coverage of the SuperPower Shorts. They come in multiple colors, so they can work for any skin tone to be invisible under an outfit, but I liked the criss-cross mesh Runway color the best.

I was still worried it would roll down every time I sat down (which would be happening a lot during all those afterparties). But I took the plunge and put in the order, ready to send it back if it didn’t pass the test.

When my package arrived, I was first impressed by the material. It didn’t feel cheap or like I’d rip a hole in it on my first time.

Putting my legs into the holes, I noticed that there was a gusset opening to make going to the bathroom super easy, which would be nice for a long event.

Stretching the shorts over my thighs, I actually liked the compression feeling; I felt supported instead of constricted. It went up past my belly button, all the way to just below my chest. It passed the first test; I could breathe!

I sat up and down a few times and was even more impressed. It didn’t budge. Honeylove’s SoftFlex structures in the side seams really work to keep it staying up. Nothing digs into your sides and I even felt some support with my posture. A little extra help to stop me from slouching in pictures, an added bonus.

I walked around my home and checked in the mirror; it looked great! Smooth hourglass frame. I put a dress on top and felt confident; it looked exactly how I wanted it to look.

Now that I’m not going to be picking at my clothes all night, I am so excited to see all my musician friends for the first time in forever! I’ve got a ton of amazing events with amazing people coming up, and with Honeylove, I’m excited to present the most confident version of myself.
