Body Shapers For Dresses
Did you get invited to a company cocktail party? A friend’s birthday bash, or an elegant event that calls for you to show up dazzling from head to toe?
If the answer is YES, it’s always good to make sure your appearance is at its best, so we are about to embark on a simple secret that even celebrities can’t hold back from!
Yes Ladies..Body Shapers, Body Shapewear, Girdles…whatever name tickles your fancy!
For years these staple waist cinching undergarments, have been blazing the red carpet, Hollywood movies, special events, non-special events, just about any given situation you can think of due to its instant slimming results, and confidence boosting mechanisms.
So Now the question is: Which Body Shaper is best for certain dresses? That’s what you came for right?!
#1) A High Waist Thigh Shaper
This sleek body shaper is great option for dresses with straps that drape around the neck area, and possibly cover the back. It is a definite hip hugger that will pull in your thighs and secure sneak-peeks under your pretty little cocktail dress. This high-waist body shaper option is perfect for non-slip, fine lines that will stay in place the whole time. Since it is high waisted, it stops just under the bust area, where you can choose to wear a bra or go strapless. Whether your dress has sleeves or falls down the shoulders, your tummy and hips will be smoothed, and will leave you with a polished refined look.
#2) A Full Bodysuit Body Shaper
The benefit of this one-piece style shaper is a more solid foundation that will lift the girls upright, flatten your stomach, round out your butt, and create that sexy hourglass appeal. For the best results, always make sure to choose a comfortable fit that is your correct size, because if you decide to go a size smaller ( some think the tighter the better), it could make the experience a nightmare. Remember comfort is key here; especially for long wear during those extravaganzas. The last thing you want to think about is if a bulge is speaking for you before you’re able to get a word out. No ma’am, just serve us the glitz and glam with this slimming bodysuit.
#3) An Under-Bust Full Body Shaper
This slimming body shapewear is perfect for a busty pair of coconuts, which leaves the option to wear your own bra, and show off that sexy cleavage if you choose. The great news is it also smoothes out back fat, and creates smooth lines along the waist and hips. Don’t worry about your thighs rubbing throughout the party, or getting a little tipsy on the dance floor, and accidently doing salsa leg lifts that you saw on that dance show. You are totally covered in this full body shaper, so you are free to express yourself as you please!
#4) Butt Lifters/ Butt Enhancer Shapewear
For the crop top dress lovers who need some extra cushion in the rump, can definitely benefit from a butt lifter undergarment. It’s much cheaper than harming your body and undergoing dangerous surgery. Wear that hip hugging two-piece and accentuate your backside with a lift and make your thighs a little more full. This style usually comes in a thong style boy short that is easy to slide on and replace your usual undies with. The dramatic results are breathtaking when worn with the right outfit, and you can be a head turning splash of sexy as you walk into the scene.
Have fun being a woman and utilize the many tools at your convenience to be at your best at all times. Being skinny or lavishly large does not matter when it comes to pulling off that chic, clean polished appearance.
How to choose the Right Fit:
- Measure under bust right at the bra line
- Measure natural waist ( above the hips)
- Measure hips (at or just above the hip bone)
- Measure your torso length from under the breast down to where you bend to sit
**It is always best to get help from someone, because it can get tricky when trying to wrap measuring tape around yourself and get accurate measurements.
You want to make calculated decisions when purchasing a body shaper, and the right information is necessary.
Choosing the Right Construction and Fabric
Construction and fabric is important because you will want to escape the nasty route of tightness, yeast infections, and bad restriction in the crotch section. Always pay attention to which fabrics give you the most flexibility, breathability and long term wear. The best fabrics for body shapers are spandex, powernet, neoprene, and nylon. The stretch ability in these materials make it easy to pull on, yet give the desired compression necessary to cinch in the body parts.
It’s always best to choose high quality construction over cheaply made designs so that you get the most longevity out of your body shapwear. Choose options that are precisely sewn and designed, whether padded or not, that can withstand all day wear, and wash handling.
The best idea would be to look for known brands such as Ann Chery, Ann Michell, and Co’Coon that provide high quality shapers that you can use time after time, and can go through a good washing.
Quick Side note: For wash handling it is always best to hand wash but for those who need a quick fix, choose a shaper that can be machine washed and lightly dried (just in case).
