They each tried on different sculpting underwear and shorts before testing out the same shaping shift dress from the celebrity brand.
Mia first tried on the Sculpting Mid Waist Brief, $32, and was “alarmed” that she was supposed to buy an extra small, based on her measurements.
That feeling didn’t go away when she tried to put them on.
“Am I supposed to fit in that?” Mia asked, incredulous. “Will I lose circulation in my legs?”

“Oh my word, is that ever small!” her mom said, watching her struggle to pull them on. “I don’t think I could get one leg in that.”
“It feels like it’s breaking my hip!” Mia said, pulling them up her legs. “It’s killing me! It hurts, it’s hurting me.”
But when she finally got them on, she admitted, “It really has flattened out the front.”
Next, mom tried on the High Waisted Bonded Short, $98.

She also struggled to get it on, saying it would be a “workout” to put it on in the morning while getting dressed.
But she also liked how it ultimately fit.
“Wow, it really smooths my tummy,” she said once the had it on under a dress. “I think it’s really, really nice.”
“You look super curvy, and your little itty bitty waist,” Mia told her.
Finally, they both tried on the same Open Bust Slip Dress, $68.
Mia compared the tight elastic to tension bands used for exercise, saying the waist felt like the hardest, heavies tension band.
But she liked how it flattened her stomach, noting that it made a big difference and was “a lot more wearable” than the briefs.
Mom also said it was more comfortable.
“It does suck in right here,” she said, gesturing to her waist.
Mia added: “It really really pinpoint the waist and, like, [it’s] helping a little bit, not helping to the point that you’re squishing yourself into a size you aren’t.”
For fun, the mother-daughter duo also tried matching loungewear, each wearing the Cozy Knit Tank, $52, and Cozy Knit Short, $58, in different colors.
Both loved them, with Mia calling them “super adorable” and her mom saying she might wear the outfit to Sunday dinner.
