Very nice fit and it's very comfortable
This is a great option if you want to minimize as well as reduce the "back fat". I went with my normal bra size and it works great.
the bra is very comfortable. I ordered the wrong size the first time. Exchange was very easy. Will buy again.
I was skeptical about ordering a bra online since I can't seem to find one I like when I can try them on in the store. Turns out that the short silkee was perfect! I followed the measuring directions and the bra fit great. I'll definitely order more.
I've been trying for several years to find a bra that is comfortable enough to wear all day long ("normal" bra size 40F). It took me several tries to get the correct fit. Now I LOVE my Silkee Short. I'll be buying more and also trying the Silkee Long.
Purchased 3 more non foam short silkee . I can't imagine wearing any other bra. I have the foam cups also but for daily wear I prefer the non foam .
Best bra ever and so comfortable!
They are the most comfortable bras I have ever worn. If they weren't so expensive I would buy 21 and toss all of my other bras.
If anyone at Stapeez is reading this, and I hope you are, I'm ready for the Silkee in the tank cut. Summer tops are cut lower in the back than the regular Silkee.
Bra is awesome just what I have been looking for! Just wish they were cheaper so I could purchase more!
I am very pleased with my purchase as it a comfortable bra,that actually improves on your natural shape. Honestly,. I took advantage of the Fit Specialist and she guided me to order the correct size.
comfortable as ever!
I love love love shapeez silkee - I am still waiting for a NON FOAM cup that is cut in on the back for tank tops....I do not need the extra padding but would love to be able to wear my shapeez bras all summer long....please and thank you for the best fitting bra ever!!!
This is my second bra and love it just like the first. I still marvel that someone still believed in having the adjustment pieces in the front, instead of the back. It give better lift and doesn't mar the look on the back. So thrilled that I found you!
My only complaint is I'd love something less old lady(ish). Also a clasp in the front for easier dressing would be AMAZING. But I've tried others and this fits the bill for eliminating back fat.
Love my Silkee. It is the only bra I have ever worn (ever!!!) that hits high enough under the arm to smooth out what I call "barm" (it's not boob and it's not arm). And the Silkee does such a nice job of taming the girls that are bigger than I'd like. It is a great minimizer, offers great support, and is smooth as silk!!!
A great minimizer that looks good under clothes. A little hard to get the right size, but the customer support very helpful.
I love the silkee short. It feels wonderful and looks great under my clothes, no back bulges at all!
I like this product very much. It is comfortable and gives good support. I like the lines it gives under blushes and other tops.
This is what I have been wearing since discovering your product four years ago! It rocks. Being a bit heavy set in the chest area (after a reduction 10 years ago), this bra is a miracle. Fits perfectly and it is beyond comfortable. Please keep these coming. I will be ordering my second set of the nude and black soon.
I found this bra to be very comfortable and really like that it does not have the foam. It is nice to have options, in terms of minimizing or maximizing one's cleavage. I wish the foam option could come in larger cup sizes as I have a very tiny back and yet need the e cup size. One can hope. Thanks
I'm very satisfied with my garment. Thank you
I need to control my underarm "extra boobs" that get pushed around to my back.
This is the first bra I have found to give me a truly smooth back.
I've been looking a long time for a bra that, like the perfect pair of shoes, fits comfortably immediately. This is it, and also has the benefit of smoothing my back out. My only wish is that I would love to see this bra come with wider straps, although these are pretty comfortable. In spite of measuring carefully, I will probably obtain a larger cup size in the future. For now, though, I am delighted to not only have this but that it arrived in time for my niece's wedding.
I love these bras and have recommended them to all of my friends.
I absolutely love my Shapeez silkee. I can wear all of my favorite shirts and dresses again with no worry about these things looking tight. From my very first wearing of Shapeez, I knew I found my favorite bra.
I have been a Shapeez customer from the first time I ever wore one. I will never go back!! My favorite is the Silkee Short as it is so comfortable and a minimizer as welll! I have the nude and black and both colors are perfect.
I thought this bra would be hard to get into, but I was wrong. Easily slips on over the top or pulls up from the bottom. The non foam makes this bra much more bendable and forgiving. I purchased one in nude and black. The nude conceals nicely under sheer tops and the black is like a second skin. The entire Shapeez line has done wonders for my back (structurally and aesthetically) and taken the weight off of my shoulders. No more strap indentations on my shoulders and rib cage.
This is the only bra I wear. Takes care of back fat, no other bra comes close to doing the job of the Shapeez. Well worth the money. I wear the Silkee Style. I wish the tankee had a strap that fastened under the crotch, I would try it.
The bra of my dreams.
Comfortable, beautiful and so flattering!!
I live in Canada, and Shapeez products are not that easy to find. My first purchase was an Ultimate, bought last summer. I was amazed at its comfort and wonderful fit, but occasionally felt as if the foam cups accentuated my bustline too much. I happened to be in the city before Christmas and found a store that had a much bigger selection of Shapeez. There I tried on a Silkee Short -- in fact, two. One size was too small, and two sizes up was much too big, and of course, they didn't have the size I needed. So I ordered one. (Between the exchange rate and Customs duties, the bra cost me almost exactly double what it sells for in the U.S.) And in the meantime, I happened upon a Tankee Short on sale at a local store. So now I have three Shapeez products.
I do like the Silkee Short. It's amazingly comfortable and does an excellent job of smoothing out the bulges and minimizing my bust. The cups are cut ever so slightly too low for me. This means that I sometimes "overflow" a little, even though I don't completely fill the cups when everything is properly adjusted. I do think I have the correct size, after trying on the "one size down" and "one size up" versions. I think it's just the design of the bra. Or maybe the design of me!
At any rate, I'm pleased with the product, as I am with all three that I own. And I'd certainly recommend it to anyone!
I ordered this bra in the wrong size. I didn't return it, because it was still so comfy I wore it anyway. I have ordered another one in hopefully the right size.
Very comfortable and I love the straps which actually stay on my shoulders.
This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. I was looking for a bra to help with the appearance of my back and it does the job. It also has wires and good support. I hope it lasts well and will be buying more.
Shapeez is the best discovery for me. I began with Shapeez while travelling and tripping into a boutique in British Columbia that carried the brand. I was delighted with my bra. Delighted enough to search out places in eastern Canada where I could find more. After purchasing two more, and literally wearing them out, I decided to try the Silkee Short. So streamlined under my clothes all the while giving me the support that I need. And super comfortable. I am a client for life.
Like all Shapeez bras, this one is fabulous! However, I found this particular bra to run smaller than normal in the cup size. Assuming it was labeled correctly, it did not fit in the same manner as my other Shapeez bras.
I have tried probably every bra out there over the years, from inexpensive to high end expensive. All promising incredible results, yet what I ended up with wwere bras that just didn't do it for me. That is, until I found Shapeez bras. I definately found what I had been looking for after years and years of searching. The Shapeez Silky Mimimizer ended my search. I will never again be on the bra search. This is the best bra I have ever owned. The fit is fantastic, comfortable, and covers all back fat issues I have had. I wear this bra with confidence, knowing that I look as amazing as I feels. The cost of this bra is somewhat expensive yet it is worth every penny. They are easy to care for and last longer than any other bra I've ever worn. My sister told me that they were too expensive for her. That is, until I ordered one and shipped it to her. As soon as she put it on she was hooked and claims she will never again wear any other brand of bra. Quality materials and workmanship made in the USA. Search OVER!
No more shoulder straps falling off-and I love how it smooths out my bra line rolls!!
This is the most comfortable bra in years so happy my daughter told me about Shapeez will be a returning customer
I am very surprised and pleased with this purchase. It is the most comfortable bra, I have ever worn. And, that is 50 years worth! And indeed, it smooths the back fat created by other bras.
Love the shaping, both front and back, that I get from this bra. Only wish it were about an inch longer....
I get full coverage and great support from this bra. I like it so much more that the molded foam cups and will buy more
The most comfortable and well-fitting bra. Period.
It took me 3 tries to get the right size, but it was worth going through the process. Customer service made it easy. When finally I got the perfect fit, I was disappointed that my bra "squeaked" and it was annoying. Customer service said to wash it a few times and if that didn't work for me, they would replace my bra. After 3 washings, I still had the problem but didn't want to give up my fabulous bra. After talking to a couple of my friends, I found that this is a common problem with many brands since it is the fabric rubbing against the underwires. Take heart, there is a solution! Hand wash your bra in HAIR CONDITIONER. I tried it and it worked like a charm!
This is the most comfortable bra I own. Love these bras. No ugly bulges anymore. :)
This review is for my second Silkee Short bra. I bought the nude bra after buying the same bra in black a couple of months ago. I loved the black bra -- despite about a week or so of odd "squeaking" sounds.
Pro: the nude bra doesn't "squeak" the way the black one did.
Con: the underwire on the inner left cup must be a little off because the top of it jabs into my breast a little and irritates/hurts after I've been wearing it a few hours. It must be a fluke b/c the black didn't do that.
Apart from the underwire glitch on the nude bra, the Silkee is very comfortable. I have a couple of SassyBax bras and they are torture. They hurt my shoulders SO bad and they offer almost no support. This bra is far and away superior to that one.
This bra also provides great "back" coverage and smooths very well.
I do wish the cups gave a little fuller coverage, but it doesn't look like any of the Shapeez bras have full-coverage cups.
I love that I can wear a bra that gives support, yet I do not have the extra ridge across the middle of my back from traditional bra straps.
The silkee is comfort superb.
All Shapees are comfortable but I do not need
the extra bulk of foam lined cups.
Love these, SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE THAN A REGULAR BRA!
This is a great bra. I wish there were more styles without the cups as I think many of us who were these bras don't need the extra padding. I would also love it if they could make these bras in cotton.
I finally figured out my size by ordering several. Its alittle tough to get the right size and the consultants had me going from a LD to a SmDD to a med DD. I ordered the med DDD and that's my size.
I love it. Just gotta order more bras in the right size now.
I love this bra (as I do all of my Shapeez bras). I am a 38 DDD and I often look thicker in many clothes. This minimizer has a slimming effect. I love that I don't have to worry about the back fat effect that a regular bra can have. Thank you for making me feel more attractive.
I love the non-foam cup minimizer bras even better than the foam cup bras that I have been buying for years. I am a huge fan of the design that eliminates back bulges and bra lines. But now with the minimizer I don't look as large busted. Thanks shapeez for such great innovations!
Dear Shapeez, you can never stop making these bras. It took me a few tries to get the correct size, but once I did I realized what all the fuss is about. I am large busted - and the silkee short minimizer fully supports my breasts, provides attractive shaping, and stays invisible under clothes. Plus, it is so comfortable I forget I am wearing a bra. The price put me off initially, but not anymore. Bras are like sheets, its not like you can not get in them every day so they better be high quality and comfortable. I am now a shet AND bra snob. Sure with they would make more colors Puleez :-)
Your bras are one of the best I have wore, they are comfortable and they ready do accent the back the way it should. I well be ordering again soon.
Love this bra. Comfortable all day. I have purchased 3 so far.
Most comfortable, flattering bra I've ever had.
After worrying that the short one wouldn't provide adequate support, i was pleasantly surprised. Perfect for summer!
I have been looking for a comfortable bra that does not cause back fat and have finally found it with Shapeez. They also have wonderful customer service. I would recommend these bras to everyone.
Once I found my size (because it's a minimizer the size is different than my usual) I'm sold forever! I like the feel of not having the foam cups yet there is still very nice support and coverage -- no nipple show through. I love how the minimizer keeps the "girls" where they need to be for my golf game. It's very hard to successfully swing a golf club with large breasts. The only negative (and this is across the board on all Shapeez bras) is that I'm allergic to the metal strap details. I wish you would switch to plastic or put some kind of coating on the metal. It's really awful having a rash that turns into sores. I have to put tape around the metal guides and that's NOT a nice look. I'm also sorry that the WHITE Sportee is being discontinued -- I love that bra and wear it everyday. Thank you for all your help in getting the correct fit and comfort. No more neck pain due to heavy beasts not being supported correctly. Shapeez you are the woman's BEST FRIEND!
SOOOO COMFORTABLE AND YOU ALWAYS LOOK GOOD COMING AND GOING!!
This is the most comfortable bra ever even though I have not gotten a great fit yet. Even with that it is still way more comfortable than traditional bras. The back smoothing is amazing. I am going to order another one in the other size that was recommended to me and see if it's perfect.
I've been wearing the Silkee long for years after wearing the Ultimate before that. This is my first Silkee short. I ordered the same size I wear in the long (DD medium) and it just didn't fit the same. It felt too big around and I was spilling out of the cups. The customer service rep suggested I order an E small and it fits just fine. I cannot imagine wearing a conventional bra again! I've invested a lot of money in these bras over the years and it's some of the best money I've ever spent!
I love the minimizer!
Bra is very comfortable and smooth back is great.
I really like the back of this bra, looks great under knits and tees. The front fit is good but not great after returning once for a smaller body size. It is still too large around the ribs and there is no way to adjust. Should have returned again but I lost interest. Very nice quality.
I ordered my first unbelievable bra 10 years ago. I have been hooked ever since. The non foam shortee is my favorite .
I'm a customer for life. Thank you Stacey for not giving up on evolving your products .
After 4 tries, I believe I finally have the size that fits me best. I love the back smoothing properties of this bra. It has given me a smoother appearance in clothing and even seems to improve my posture! So glad I found this product.
I have been wareing the bra for years. I have 5 silkee short bras and 3 long line. I ware the non-foam bras, I am a DDD.
They are the best bras ever, will never go back to the ones that close in the back.
Love this bra- great for summertime great shaping and support and not as much material to wear under shirts as the long full length silkee.
This is my second Short Silkee Minimizer bra and they are my go to faves even though I have yet to find a perfect fit!
First, let me say that I am extremely sensitive to anything being too tight, restrictive and am even sensitive to certain fabrics to the point it can make me almost physically ill (yes, I'm weird)! I am a 38G in most traditional bras and I am really still trying to get the correct fit in the Shapeez. The first one is a XL D or DD? (the size has worn off the label area) but the cups wrinkle very badly to be seen through most any top and the center under wires protrude forward to the point that my 2 year old grandson is constantly pushing it when it's poking him in the back while he's on my lap.
I have since found that the Large-E fits better with only slight cup wrinkling. However the center under wires still protrude. I hope to find a boutique that carries them close to me sometime soon to see if we can find an even better fit. Because although I have these crazy fit issues, it's the only bra that doesn't irritate me to the point that I nearly feel ill and it holds the girls at attention; so I'll put up with a few inconsistencies in fit. AND the fact that it helps minimize those crazy back rolls is just icing on the cake.
I'd also love it if Shapeez would come out with a bra for us bigger girls that wasn't quite a Minimizer (a minimizes often squish the girls toward the outside) and had a bit less coverage in back.
Having said all that, I cannot speak highly enough of the comfort and support this bra gives. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! from the bottom of these full cups and sensitive back fat rolls. You have saved my skin and sanity!
