If I were to describe D’Elegance in three words, it would be this – best kept secret. It is a best kept secret because I never knew that in Singapore there are such good products. I was so glad that I found D’Elegance through my pageant activities. I purchased a couple of products and I was genuinely surprised by how very comfortable it is. I have tried other brands (from online, from market – you name it), and they are not only uncomfortable but also makes the shape worst!
I love (x3) the panties, girdle and corset. Of the 3, I love the panties and girdle the most! It is super comfortable, durable material and contours the shape nicely. When I wear bodycon dresses, I looked ideally shaped. I am a shopper that once I believe in the product, I stick with it!
The service was excellent and the best part about it is the education on the products. It opened a whole new dimension of shapewear to me. Allowing me to try on the products also helped to ease doubts about the products. The result of it all – I wear it every day! No unsightly bulges. Of course the products don’t cater to every dress for every occasion, but it works for my office dresses.
I believe in the products, and it works so well for me. That’s why I would recommend to anyone and everyone, especially to someone who is practical – my pageant friends would love it.

I got to know about D’Elegance in 2007 while I was shopping at International Plaza. Back then, I was attracted by the window display, but had no idea what to buy. Elida then explained to me in details the functions of D’Elegance shapewear and offered to let me try on the products.
After I bought the Brassiere, Bodysuit and Long Girdle and wore them for a short time, I was able to achieve an hourglass figure at all times. I feel comfortable and confident wearing the shapewear as they make me look inches smaller and pounds thinner instantly. The fabric is so comfortable that it makes me want to wear it all the time. This is definitely a must for special occasions!
I felt happy when my colleagues complimented me about my sexier and slimmer figure. Even my husband is supportive of me wearing D’Elegance! I will definitely introduce this product to my teenage daughter at a later stage and share my experience with her.

To be honest, I don't really mind my current body shape. In fact, I have been getting comments that I am still so slim even after two kids. However, I do wish that my tummy can be flatter and breast fuller. There are some special occasions where I'll need to fit into a dress and it is not going to look so nice with a bulging and flabby tummy. I can't remember when, but I did went to buy a girdle hoping to hide my tummy fats. However, I only used it for a few days and decided that it was too uncomfortable for me and ditched it for good.
When D'Elegance wrote to me about reviewing their range of shapewear, I was still undecided to take up the offer because I thought it is going to be uncomfortable and hard-selling. I am so glad that I didn't reject it because all these worries are needless.
On the D'Elegance Personal Consultation
Here are 5 reasons why I really love the consultation session.
1. Super nice showroom & fitting room
Once you entered the showroom, you will feel that you are in a luxury showroom. Floor is carpeted and there is a nice table and chairs at the reception area for you to sit down. I sat on the comfortable chair to fill in my consultation form. The fitting room is big. At the corner of the room, is the changing area. There is a platform with two big mirrors and curtains. A small table and two armchairs are also placed in the fitting room for the consultation. I was served a nice pot of tea while listening to the presentation by my consultant, Ms. Elida. The lighting in this photo is very bright but during the consultation, warm light is used instead. The whole ambience is very cosy and warm, with soft music playing in the playground.
2. An exclusive and intimate session
At D'Elegance, the consultation is 1-to-1. That means you will be the only customer in the showroom and will be getting full 100% attention from the consultant. Isn't this like a VIP treatment? The whole session is done in the privacy of the fitting room, behind closed doors so you can confide your concerns to the consultant without any worries.
3. Useful advice and tips
During the presentation, I learnt about why our body shape changes. Although our body shape may change, it is not the end of the world. Wearing a good set of undergarment or shapewear and with the proper way of wearing them, will provide good support and hold our body in shape. Over a long period, shapewear can actually help to sculpt our body to a better shape. Once you see yourself in better shape, your confidence level will increase too. It could even entice you to adopt a healthier diet and lifestyle to achieve that stunning silhouette you always wished for.
4. Professional service
Ms. Elida measured me very detailed and swiftly. She did not talk about the numbers during the measurement, so I don't have to feel embarrassed with my body. After the measurement, she went out of the room to get different type of shapewear for me to try on - bra, bodysuit, girdle, corset, etc. I do not know how to put on the shapewear correctly and I was so glad that Ms. Elida was waiting in the room.
She helped me with it and she did it with much professionalism that I did not feel embarrassed or uncomfortable at all. She also provided tips on how to put on the shapewear and how to adjust my body fats to enhance my body shape. While trying on each piece of shapewear, Ms. Elida explained how they are different and how they work on different parts of the body. She won't hesitate to bring more pieces for me to try. In fact, I think I tried almost all the different types of shapewear in the showroom.
5. Instant results without sweat
After putting on the shapewear, I could instantly feel the difference - my tummy is flatter and my bust is fuller. I did not feel uncomfortable in the shapewear, I could still breath as per normal! Ms. Elida then helped me to take another set of measurements to compare the results after wearing the shapewear. I was totally blown away with the numbers. My waist and abdomen line lost a total of 7cm, my bust is fuller and higher, the length of my leg even increased 2cm!
On the D'Elegance Shapewear Collection
If I really have to choose only one piece that I really like, it will be the bodysuit. Ok, if I can choose 2 pieces, it will be the bodysuit and the long girdle.
The bodysuit is the piece that helps to firm up the whole body. It catches the other parts of the body which the bra and girdle are not able to cover, eg, the back, the underarm and the part in between the bra and the girdle. The lacy portion is non-elastic and helps to tuck away the tummy. The bottom part at the back also has 3D cutting, like the girdle, which provides support for the bum. The upper part of the bodysuit also provides additional support to the bra.
D'Elegance's girdle is really comfortable to wear and the waist band will not roll down, unlike the previous girdle that I had. The middle part of the girdle is non-elastic to hold down the abdomen area, while the sides are elastic so that it is easy to put on and take off. When the bodysuit and long girdle are paired together with the bra, the whole body is perfectly shaped from the bust, to the abdomen and to the hips and thigh area!
Achieving that hourglass body shape is no longer a dream. The whole piece is also able to provide good support to maintaining a good body posture. As I mentioned before, shapewear is not just a piece of lingerie that only helps to shape the body for just that moment. If you are able to wear it for the long term, you will notice your body shape changing for the better and stays there. In fact, even when I don't wear the girdle now, my tummy appears flatter than it was before I started on this journey. Now, I need to be more consistent in wearing the long girdle to shape my flabby thighs.
Before & After
Let me show you some of the before and after photos of wearing the shapewear.
After wearing the various shapewear for a few weeks, I can say that I am truly happy with them. They help to flatten my tummy, lift up my bust, and encourage me to maintain a good posture. Most importantly, I seem to gain more self-confidence of my body. Thank you D'Elegance for giving me a better body shape and confidence!

Many ladies I know, have had occasions where they needed the assistance of shape wear to help create a nicer silhouette or to fit into a special dress for a special occasion. I had to enlist the help of shapewear to sculpt my body shape on 2 occasions in the past – first time was for my wedding day (you know, brides need to fits into those crazy tight wedding gowns which are the least comfortable things on earth) and the second time was when I needed to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes, post-baby.
Unfortunately, on both occasions, the shapewear I had were difficult to wear, uncomfortable, and all they did was shifted my “problem area” from one place to another. If you had the same experience as me with shapewear, I urge you to read on about D’Elegance because they changed my experience with shapewear and my idea about attaining the ideal silhouette
On her D'Elegance Personal Consultation
It was a chilly, drizzling Friday evening when I rushed down to the D’Elegance boutique at International Plaza for my personal consultation. Thankfully, the place is conveniently located and easily accessible from Tanjong Pagar MRT Station.
I was greeted by Elida, who welcomed me warmly and made me feel at ease almost immediately (well, the consultation and fitting can be a rather intimate session so it’s extremely important that you at least feel comfortable about it!).
I filled up a form with my personal particulars, went around the tastefully decorated boutique to take some photos for my blog post and was ushered into the generously-sized fitting room with Elida. We took my height, weight, and some other measurements before Elida sat me down, with a cup of (very much welcomed) warm camomile tea. Elida shared with me about the brand, how it came about and why women need shapewear to help maintain their body shape.
It sounded like sales talk initially, but beyond the usual “presentation”, Elida was very patient and personable with her sharing and answering all the questions I had. She shared frankly about her weight loss attempts after her pregnancy, her vision to empower women with confidence and appreciation for their own body by creating and offering comfortable shapewear designed for the Asian bodies and valuable nuggets of wisdom on eating well and caring for the body. If you have a chance to meet her in person, you will see that, despite being a grandmother, her skin still exudes a healthy glow and she is definitely aging gracefully. Without realising it, the sales pitch I was expecting became more like a casual chat with Elida over tea.
During the consultation, I learnt about the ideal silhouette for my height, the difference it makes in getting high-quality and painstakingly designed shapewear, the correct way to wear shapewear and the answer to a question that always bothers me about shapewear – how do I wear them with the clothes that I want to wear without parts of the shapewear being visible like the lace, the bra strap and the corners of the girdles?!
The Ideal Silhouette
I think it is a healthy notion that the ideal body shape is not a one-size-fit-all set of numbers only found on Barbie dolls. The ideal body shape is different for everyone, depending on our height and weight. After changing into a comfortable silk gown, Elida took down my height and weight and marked out a hexagon with her chart to determine the figures that will constitute an ideal silhouette for me. She also marked out my current body shape, without the shapewear, to see the difference and how close we can get to the ideal silhouette with the help of D’Elegance shapewear.
High quality and well designed
During the consultation session, Elida chose several pieces of shape wear which target different body areas for me to try. She patiently explained the design of the shape wear, the revolutionary WinCool material patented in Japan and how each of the items will help to sculpt the different areas of my body.
After my experience with other shape wear brands, I must say I am utterly impressed by the comfort level of D’Elegance shape wear. When Elida explained to me about the thought process behind the design of the shape wear, I can see that a lot of effort has been put into the design process to ensure that they are comfortable enough for regular wear (even in our warm, humid climate) and that their 3D cutting technique allows the shape wear to adhere to our natural body shape while sculpting the more problematic areas to create a beautiful silhouette instantly.
High-Quality and Fine Details of D’Elegance Shapewear
During the consultation, Elida also showed me the right way to wear the shape wear and how to pair different shape wear together as a set to produce the best result.
I’ve always thought of shape wear as an emergency tool – something you put on to target your problem area WHEN you want to wear more fitted clothes. While shape wear can definitely do that, there are times when I find myself stuck in a dilemma – the piece of clothing I want to wear actually shows the thick straps and lace design of the shape wear I need to wear underneath to achieve the ideal silhouette.
I was then enlightened by the idea of wearing shape wear on a regular basis to allow the body sculpting process to be a long term one. We don’t have to wear every single piece everyday, maybe just the body suit or the girdle more regularly, and when the occasion arises where we need to wear more fitted clothes, our body is already in a better shape and condition so we may even do without the shape wear when we need to wear that special, fitted strapless gown, for example
The 2-hr personal consultation with D’Elegance had been most informative and beneficial to helping me understand how to care for my body and how the right shape wear can help me to achieve a nicer silhouette.
I’ve been wearing the shape wear on and off for the past 2 weeks and I still can’t get over how comfortable they are! Having different items from the collection allows me to mix and match them according to the clothes that I need to wear and the body areas that I’m sculpting.
With just the girdle alone, I could shave off a whopping 4 cm off my waist and 9cm off my abdomen!! That means with the help of the shape wear, I could easily fit into clothes almost ONE SIZE SMALLER than what I usually wear.
I wish I’d known about D’Elegance (and the difference between high quality and mediocre, mass market shape wear) much earlier, so I can use their products during my wedding and post-pregnancy period.

As a mother to 1, I'm mostly happy with my body. After all, it's the body that has nourish our sweet little darling and I'm proud of it. However, there are still moment when I struggled with my troubled spots and felt sad that I couldn't carry out some dresses like before. I'm weighing the same as before pregnancy but things are just not the same anymore!! I won't go into details here, but basically some areas are less firm, toned and more flabby. In the past, I was always thinking about losing a few more kilos and inches. But now, I just missed how my body was before giving birth.
When I was invited to a review D'Elegance shapewear, I was extremely excited and honoured.
On the D'Elegance Personal Consultation
I totally enjoyed the personal consultation! There isn't any awkwardness. Elida is really knowledgeable and dedicated to helping women. Thanks to her, I have learnt more about my body and found my right fit to enhance & maintain my body shape.
On the D'Elegance Shapewear Collection
When I tried on the body shapewears from D'Elegance, I found some hope in getting into fitted dresses. My greatest worry of bulging tummy was solved instantly! I lost 10cm at my abdomen area. How awesome is that! With the help of D'Elegance girdle, my tummy flattened in a blink. I can finally wear dresses without being too conscious. In fact, I feel so much more confident with a comfortably tucked tummy and slightly lifted butt. I don't need to worry about bulges when I squat or sit down anymore.
My favourite combination would be the brassiere, short girdle and bodysuit. They shape up my body without much effort.
If there's something that every woman must have apart from a good health and a beautiful heart, it's not the body size - it's a nice body shape, and that can be carved out with the help of these shapewears. One who is bigger in size can still look good with a curvy firm body! When all the body concerns are being addressed, women will naturally be more confident and focused to achieve more dreams. And for me, I'm happier too as I get to wear pretty dresses!
Thank you D'Elegance! I'm loving how the shapewear keeps my body in good shape!

Having been through 3 pregnancies myself, I'm sure many mothers out there will understand and may have the same dilemma as me. Weight gain, saggy breasts, flabby thighs and that tummy of mine that looks forever 3-4 months "pregnant". It's quite depressing at times when I look at myself in the mirror. Sometimes when I see nice tight fitting dresses, I will reminisce about the past and start to ask myself "where has my 25 inch waistline gone to?"
As time passes, I have started to become less adventurous to try on colourful clothing. My wardrobe is now filled with more dark and black coloured clothing. I mean it is the safest colour to cover my flaws, isn't it? To an extent, my mother even commented to me that I have started to dress like an old auntie. #truestory
When D'Elegance approached me to do a review on their shapewear, I gladly took up the offer to see if these shapewear are able to make any difference to my life. After the personal consultation session with the founder, Ms Elida, I finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. She is a very humble lady who is willing to share her knowledge and tips on how to take care of our body and how to wear these shapewear effectively to achieve that figure which I thought was once lost.
On her D'Elegance Personal Consultation
Here are the reasons why it's worthwhile to attend a one-to-one consultation at D'Elegance:
1. Warm & Cosy Environment
The floor is carpeted and showcase of their shapewears are hung nicely on the rack. The fitting room is spacious and you can sip your tea comfortably inside the room while trying out various types of shapewear.
I was seated comfortably at the waiting area and tea was served immediately. I was asked to fill up a personal consultation form. Ms Elida was the personal consultant on that day and shared with me about the long term benefits of wearing shapewear to enhance our figure.
3. One-to-one consultation
I was led into the fitting room and was asked to changed into a night gown and a robe. Ms Elida took my measurements carefully and came back with a few different shapewear for me to try on. The whole process was slow and she took the time to explained to me the correct way to wear these shapewear. After this session, I realised that with the correct push and pull tactics, I was able to conceal and enhance the areas of concern.
4. Free Alteration
The bodysuit needed a slight alteration to suit my size. Ms Elida personally did the alteration to make sure the measurement was done accurately and correctly. This extra service is provided free of charge for all customers.
5. After-sales service
I was told that our body shapes will change due to the prolonged wearing of shapewear. We can make appointments with D'Elegance and come back in every 3 months time for a review session. We can trade in the existing D'Elegance shapewear and purchase new ones at a discounted rate.
On the D'Elegance Shapewear Collection
I am impressed with D'Elegance shapewear. Not only I could achieve that instant "slim" look on my body, I felt so comfortable wearing them the whole day while doing my annual CNY visiting at relatives' houses. I do not have to worry whether my tummy will protrude out when I sit down anymore.
Their shapewear are made from Wincool fabric and the cooling effect actually can bring down 1-2 degrees celsius from our skin temperature. Personally I have a very "heaty" body so when I wear the shapewear, the comfy level is one of my primary concerns. I am glad to say, I don't feel hot in these shapewear at all.
Thanks to D'Elegance, I learnt so much about taking care of our body and using shapewear to regain back all the confidence which was once lost.
