This weekend, slip into something more slimming! BodyShapers are a reliable and sometimes needed foundation piece for our intimate apparel. Silhouettes of clothing have become more form fitting over the fashion cycle. Today’s trend is thinner fabrics. With the average female clothing size increasing, some of us are starting to spill out of our clothes. Most women need bodyshapers to support them under each outfit and to accentuate beautiful curves.
Check out this quick list of different options:
- Camisoles are similar to tank tops and include a bra for bust support. This top style covers the mid-waist section which helps smooth away love handles. These tops can also help improve posture. Camisole shapers are best when worn under tight fitted tops and a-line dresses.
- Control top shapers are available in pantyhose or panty style pieces. These have a reinforced waistband that tucks your tummy and lifts your bum. These are best to wear under garments that are tight along the mid-waist section. Control top body shapers can definitely help those who are bottom heavy or who want to shape and contour the lower half.
- Mid-thigh shapers cut off along the upper thigh and provide much support along the tops of legs and bottom. They are best to wear with skirts and pants and will keep thighs looking toned.
- Body suits usually are a combination of the Camisole and Mid Thigh shaper, and they are cut off along the upper thigh. Although they are more difficult to put on and take off, this shaper is a full body contouring piece. Some of these Bodysuits have a short or skirt style bottom. Some have a double gusset available for easy access when using the bathroom. These are recommended when wearing tight fitted dresses, for full body coverage and support.
You deserve to love your body and curves. No woman is perfect, and we should embrace our flaws and who we are. Body shapers are about feeling good. They’re not for everyone, but some of us might give them a try.
