The old days of feeling like a stuffed sausage in your shapewear are over! We are past squeezing our bodies into these tight control-undergarments that left us with no room to move, let alone breathe! Many women now forgo the slinky outfit they once wanted to wear because the need for uncomfortable control tops to smooth the curves of their body was just too tight, confining, and sweltering, especially in the summer heat. Well we want you to know that shapewear has changed a great deal over the years! It isn’t your grandmother’s girdle and it isn’t solely for those special party occasions. Today’s modern advances in fabric allow it to have a lighter and more breathable quality. Manufacturers such as Wolford, Spanx, and Marie Jo have designed control garments that are perfect for any outfit, season, or occasion. Eliminate bulges, show off you curves, and feel confident in any of these everyday shapewear pieces!
This sexy black number is equipped for any dress or pencil skirt ensemble! The breathable nylon microfiber prevents static cling, and allows for easy movement. The princess lines and the high waist control, help to smooth everything from your bum all the way up to right below your bust line. Pair it with the Astor Strapless bra and you will feel stylish and lean in this chic bodysuit.
The Spanx “In Power” Shaper is the ultimate control garment for any pant ensemble (think under white!). Its light mesh fabric provides invisible shaping while the double layering around the tummy imparts extra support and flattening. The smoothing foundation helps to shape from your tummy and waist, through your hips, and down to your bottom and thighs.
Want less coverage, but still need that shaping support? The Spanx “Higher Power” is excellent for rounding out your bum and keeping your tummy looking thin and lean. Wear it in place of panties and you are guaranteed no panty-lines and of course a picture perfect look without the ripples and rolls.
A favorite at Embrasse-moi, this lightweight and airy piece is perfection! The tulle fabric provides all-over support, firming your mid-section and flattening your tummy. Great for dainty dresses, pencil skirts, and more.
The fashion conscious need not shy away from this piece. The lower neckline and adjustable straps offer versatile uses while still providing a thorough control and shaping form. Whether strutting the streets in your Marc Jacobs office attire, or hitting downtown in the latest LBD, you are sure to attention-grabbing – and not because of unwanted rolls and bulges.
Searching for a different shapewear look? This Wolford Forming Dress is an excellent choice! The all-in-one piece offers a built in underwire bra with a comfortable but shaping slip. Effectively smoothing bust, tummy, hips, bum, and thighs, this dress will have you looking flawless under any cocktail dress or office skirt.
