Hip-T Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)


I was so happy with the chance to review this awesome product that I had seen online. It's called the Hip-T. You wear it around your hips, so it covers up any areas that might be exposed by low-rise pants and such.


It is wonderful! There are so many great things about it, and let me tell you a few.

I can never find pants/shirts that work well together. When I do buy jeans that fit, they always sag on me. And most pants available to me are low-rise. Or the shirt is just too short to cover enough below.
The problem with that, as you all know, is when you lean over or bend down to get something the pants creep down slowly exposing your lower back (or sometimes a little more). Blah! Who wants to see that.



The Hip-T solution is to cover all that up and still be cute.

I like that I can get good coverage and always feel modest without worrying that it will slip.

I like that I can wear something under all my shirts...without the added bulk of another shirt. This is especially great with the warm summer weather approaching.

And one of the biggest selling points for me was this: THEY CARRY PLUS-SIZES! Hurray! Big girls (like me) need to cover up just as much as everyone else. Their sizes go from XX Small (Youth size 10-12) all the way up to 3XL (24-26).





When I was choosing a size, I asked one of the owners about it. My normal size falls between two of their sizing options. She suggested going for the smaller of the two. I did, and I'm happy that she told me that. I even think next time I might try one size smaller. I always feel like it's a bit stretched out after I wear it for a long time.

These wash well. They are very comfortable to wear too. I can't wait to go out and buy some more. And lucky me...there is a local shop that carries these. But it's super easy to order them online too.

With all the color options, I could wear one of these with each outfit I own. I did, however, choose the white lace Hip-T. It goes well with many of my shirts. It was a good choice for me. I think the next one I get will be a plain black one.

Buy It: You can get your own Hip-T on their website or search for a store that carries them in your area.

Win It: The wonderful owners at Hip-T have offered to give away one Hip-T to a winner here. The winner will get to choose which one they'd like to receive. Believe me, you're going to love this!

That is...fascinating. Very, very interesting.

I would always go for the white lace and/or black lace ones first--because they go with everything.

And I am already a follower!

Not many options for stores for us Upstate NYers.

I actually think it would be CLOSER if I were to drive to the one in Lima, OH! (Hey, right on my way to visit the folks in IN, right?)

I love this idea! I had the Bella Band when I was pregnant with David and really liked it, and I even thought - I'd like to wear this all the time.

I'd probably start with white, since that's so versatile, but I love the fuscia and the aqua as well.

Emily said...

and I subscribe, of course!

Hmmmm...looks like I'd have to make a stop in Troy when I go to see my grandma if I wanted to shop for one.

The company is run by Kelly and christine out of California.

I'd choose the basic T-Hip in Heather Grey!
This is soooooooooooo cute, I love the cover your assets phrase! :)

ts2sn said...

I would go with the basic white.

This looks like a really great product. When I was pregnant I used the "Belly Band" to get the use of my regular pants and shirts for a few extra weeks. Post-babies, I've had more trouble with clothes because of this whole low-rise/short-shirt trend and wished for a Belly Band to help me get more use out of some of my pre-pregnancy clothes. It's so great to hear that there IS a solution!

Hmmm, it looks like the closest shop to me is Therapy in Blue Bell, PA.

The easiest way would be to buy one from one of the e-retailers. There aren't any stores that carry them in my state. The closeset would be The Ritz in Ohio!
