Trinny and Susannah The Magic Body Smoother Skirt Slip - My Review

The Trinny and Susannah Magic Body Smoother Skirt Slip comes in a box with the lovely Trinny and Susannah on the front showing their before and after shots. Susannah’s fleshy bits, in what looks like a g-string, might be slightly off-putting to some, but the after photo shows how effective this little slip can be. Hope for us all!

Trinny and Susannah Magic Body Smoother Skirt Slip - 52618 - Shapewear Review - Packet

Be warned, the body smoother skirt looks REALLY small. It does stretch, honestly!

This is a high waisted, mid thigh skirt made from very strong (extra firm control), seamless compression fabric. It does look just like a very small, tight tube when you get it out and lay it flat though!

It has lots of "zoning" which helps to give you LOADS of shape and slimming control. These zones look quite obvious when the slip is not being worn. However, they disappear once they are stretched out on your body.

The waistband measures 4cm and is made from a very stretchy fabric. It should sit just under your bust (depending on how tall you are) and stays in place without straps. The fabric is folded and all of the stitching is inside. It looks quite a ridgy piece of material. This helps it to fit perfectly and not roll down. The ridges do disappear once they are stretched out on your body.

The skirt hem should sit around your mid thighs. It is hemmed inside but is completely flat on the outside – it won’t show through clothing. Again, it is made from folded fabric to make it as discreet as possible. It is also quite stretchy and so should sit nice and flat on your thighs.

Trinny and Susannah Magic Body Smoother Skirt Slip - 52618 - Shapewear Review - Hem

The front and the back measure the same from the top waistband to the bottom hem. The back should sit just under your bra line.

There is a lot of ruching and shaping around the bottom area. This helps to give your bum LOADS of shape - it is a really nice feature of this skirt slip. This looks especially brilliant if you wear this under and very tight skirt - it makes your bum look rounder and really gorgeous!

Trinny and Susannah Magic Body Smoother Skirt Slip - 52618 - Shapewear Review - Back View

The SMALL size should fit a UK dress size 10-12 or waist measurements 23-27 inches.

The skirt slip measures 49cm top to toe.
The waistband is 4cm wide.

Pros: What I Like About The Trinny and Susannah Magic Body Smoother Slip:

  • The fabric is super strong so you can really pull it to get into it without worrying about laddering it.
  • I like all of the cinching and ruching areas as they work to give your figure a much better shape (as well as looking thinner).
  • The extended waist sits nice and high and seems to stay in place really well.

Cons: What I Don't Like About The Trinny and Susannah Magic Body Smoother Slip:

  • It is a little bit tricky to take big steps when you are wearing it - I am being EXTREMELY picky though!
  • There is nothing else that I don't like about it x

How To Put On A Trinny and Susannah Magic Body Smoother Slip:

Easy peasy, this is quite a straight forward, no-puff one to get into.

You roll it up into an o-shape. Step into it and wriggle it up your body. Once it is up to the top of your thighs start working the top half over your bum and waist. Roll it all up and down, ensuring your bum is sitting in the right bit.

Wriggle around to make sure it is sitting perfectly.

Trinny and Susannah The Magic Bum, Tum & Thigh Reducer - My Review

The reducer comes in a neat white packet with the lovely ladies on the front. Apparently the model is actually Trinny!

Trinny and Susannah The Magic Bum Tum & Thigh Reducer - 52518 - Shapewear Review - Packet

Just to warn you, once you take it out it does look quite small in its little plastic packet! Please do be reassured though it does stretch – LOTS!

The reducer is made from a very strong, seam-free compression fabric. It feels quite sturdy to the touch and you won’t have to worry about easily laddering the fabric (unlike some other brands). It is quite long both in the body and in the legs, so really good for taller figures.

Trinny and Susannah The Magic Bum Tum & Thigh Reducer - 52518 - Shapewear Review - Front View

The fabric is seamless (apart from inner thigh seams) but does have ruching, shaping and gathering. This looks quite prominent when the reducer is not stretched out. However, it does disappear once it is on your body. All of this gathering and ruching helps to give a lot more shape and slimming control – don’t be worried by it, it does work and it does disappear!

Trinny and Susannah The Magic Bum Tum & Thigh Reducer - 52518 - Shapewear Review - Zoning

The legs are made from very strong, smooth compression fabric. They REALLY suck in your thighs, making them so much slimmer and firmer.

There is a seam down the inside leg (but this shouldn’t show) and the legs are binded. However, the binding is soft and stretchy and so shouldn’t dig in or create bulging.

Unusually for high waisted magic knickers, the gusset is a closed one. This means you need to pull them down to use the loo – something to bear in mind. It is lined with cotton inside so you can wear them in place of your own knickers.

The waistband sits high up just under your bra line. It is 3cms wide and quite stretchy, so it should grip and stay in place. It is constructed by folding over the fabric and all the stitching is inside. It does looks a bit ridgy but smoothes out once it is on your body. This helps it to grip and stay in place without straps.

The back comes up to the same height as the front, so it should sit just under your bra line. Again, it has loads of zoning and ruching on it, but this will disappear once it is all stretched out on your body.

One of the things I like the best about the reducer is the bum shaping. It looks a bit saggy and baggy out of the packet, but once on it smooths out and helps to slim, lift and shape your bottom.

The LARGE size should fit a UK 16-18 or waist measurements 30 - 33 inches.

The reducer measures 50cms top to toes
The center waistband to top of the gusset measures 32cms
The inner thighs measure 14cms
The waistband is 3cms wide

Pros: What I Like About The Trinny and Susannah Thigh Reducer

  • They are a pair of really strong, stretchy magic knickers with a high waist.
  • They are quite long, both in the body and in the leg.
  • The material they are made from is really nice and substantial and very good quality.
  • The high waist is brilliant if you have too tight waistbands and tend to spill over the top of them.
  • They give your bum a really nice shape – my looked much firmer and rounder.
  • They don’t have an opening gusset – some people do prefer this even with the high waisted ones.

Cons: What I Don’t Like About The Trinny and Susannah Thigh Reducer

  • The legs on these are really long so you couldn’t wear them with above the knee skirts and dresses.
  • The body is also really long. I think these were designed for fairly tall people! If you have a short body these will be far too long for you and will wrinkle up.
  • You have to pull them down to use the loo. Like pretty much all shapewear it is a wrestle to get them on and off so be prepared to put your back in to it!

How To Put On The Trinny and Susannah Thigh Reducer

These look quite small when you get them out of the packaging. Don’t worry, they are robust and should stretch lots. Sit down and gather one of the legs into an o shape. Put one leg in and slide it up to just above your thigh. Repeat with the other leg. Now stand up and roll them up and “seat” your bottom. Roll the rest of the body up to just under your bra line.

A bit of jiggling and jiving is always good to get them sitting right. Dance around the room a bit until you feel they are comfortable.

Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper - My Review

The body shaper comes in a neat little white packet with the lovely ladies grinning out from the front.

Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper - 52818 - Shapewear Review - Packet

Once you take it out of the box it should be parcelled up in a clear plastic sleeve. The one I got out was brand new but it looked a little bit messy through the clear packet. I am guessing they are quite hard to fold up neatly?!

The body shaper is quite a substantial garment. It covers from your mid thighs right to just under your bust and the front, and over your bra at the back.

It is EXTRA FIRM in slimming control and is made from a SEAMLESS, very strong compression fabric. This is made with anti-static qualities and so your clothes should not cling to the body shaper.

Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper - 52818 - Shapewear Review - Front View

The body shaper is designed to be worn with your own bra. The front comes down quite low and should sit just below your bust. The hems on this look quite robust but are super stretchy and should not dig in.

The straps are thin, soft and stretchy and adjustable, rather like normal bra straps. They are not removable.

Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper - 52818 - Shapewear Review - Straps and Bust

Although the material is seamless, there is lots of shaping, ruching and gathering. Out of the packet these areas look quite visible, but once they are on your body they stretch out and disappear. They help to give lots of shape and slimming strength, so don’t be put off by them!

Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper - 52818 - Shapewear Review - Waist Cinching Zones

The legs are made from very strong, smooth material. It is seamless except for one seam down the insides of the leg which should remain hidden between your thighs. This gives the body shaper SUPER STRONG slimming on your thighs - one of the best thigh shapers I have come across!

The leg ends are folded over fabric with all the stitching inside. They are very stretchy and should give a good fit on your thighs.

The gusset is quite a discreet opening one – a sort of cross-over flap like a mans y-front. This means you don’t have to go through the palaver of pulling down the entire body shaper to use the loo. The gusset is lined inside with cotton so you don’t need to wear your own knickers either.

Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper - 52818 - Shapewear Review - Legs and Gusset

The back of the body shaper comes up quite high at the top. It will cover your bra and so hide any lines and bulges created by your bra. It is also super for smoothing out back boobs!!

One of the best bits about this body shaper is the superb bum shaping. Out of the packet it looks a big saggy and wrinkly but put it on and your bum will be lifted, slimmed and shaped.

Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper - 52818 - Shapewear Review - Back

The SMALL size should fit a UK dress size 10 - 12 or waist measurements 23-27 inches.

Under arm to end of thighs - 52cm
Center front (under bust) to top of gusset - 32cm
Center back to top of gusset - 38cm
Legs - 14cm
Straps - 1cm wide

Pros: What I Like About The Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper

  • It is across between a pair of high waisted magic knickers and a bodysuit.
  • The straps hold everything up so you don’t get the dreaded roll down halfway through the evening!
  • You wear it with your own bra so you get a good bust shape (depending on your choice of bra!).
  • The bum shaping is amazing – your bum will be lifted, shaped and slimmed.
  • It has an opening gusset so you don’t need to pull them down to use the loo.
  • It is seamless except for down the inner thighs where no one will see!

Cons: What I Don’t Like About The Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper

  • I’m not convinced by the opening gusset. Your “aim” has to be good and to be blunt, since having a baby, mine isn’t. Because of the straps these would take a full undress to use the loo!
  • The sewing around the scooped out section is a little bit pronounced – it may dig in or pinch a bit.
  • The legs are quite long so not suitable to be worn with short skirts.
  • If you wear it with a normal bra you end up with 2 straps on your shoulder.

How To Put The Trinny and Susannah All In One Body Shaper On

Put on your own bra first. Now sit down and roll up the entire shaper plus one leg into a sort of o shape. Put one leg in and bring it to your knees. Now do the same with the other leg. Stand up and pull up the legs so that the hem is around your mid thighs. Roll up the rest of the legs and get your bottom sitting in the “saggy” bit. Roll up the rest of the shaper and put on the straps.

This one takes quite a bit of shaking and shimmying to get it all sitting in place correctly.
