The south of the border silhouette sensation is here! Fajas are one of the most exciting trends in shapewear. Even the New York Times has taken notice of this worldwide phenomenon. You may have heard this word, faja but if are not a native Spanish speaker, you may be wondering what a faja is? The word literally means belt or wrap in Spanish, but it refers several kinds of shapers that were popularized in Latin America.
Latin America has a long tradition of shapewear. While girdles and other shapers haven risen and fallen in popularity in the United States, south of the equator the love affair with shapewear has remained consistent. Generations of women have used these garments to create curves and show them off. And that’s just what the word faja refers to.
Most often faja shapers are a cincher style of garment, wrapping tightly around the waist to create a beautiful hourglass shape. One of our favorite faja creating companies, Leonisa makes several of these. The Thermal Reducing Vest in Latex and the Slimming Waist Cincher With Latex are both excellent options if you’d like to add a faja to your figuring fixing collection. And if you’re a future faja wearer with a latex allergy the Anti-Allergic Shaper Vest by CoCoon, is a great place to start your journey with this style of garment!
One of the most important factors in the overall look of your figure is a bra. The wrong bra can be uncomfortable and ruin your shape. The right bra can make your shape look sexier than it ever has. We searched far and wide to find the very best and brightest in bras to bring them to you. So, here they are, our top four superstars from the Hourglass Angel bra collection.
1. One minimizer is the Porcelain Molded Seamless Underwire Bra by Panache. Panache is one of the most trusted brands in the marketplace for their performance, superior construction and range of garments. This piece features seamless contour underwire cups, a unique no-spread design, adjustable straps, hook-and-eye closure and just enough padding to add modesty without volume.
2. But if a minimizer isn’t what you need, you have to see the Seamless Comfort Push Up Bra. This piece is both beautiful and effective. This graduated push up creates volume and va-va-voom! Adjustable straps and hook-and-eye closure finish off a piece with plenty to love.
3. But if you’re going formal or showing a little shoulder, you’ve got to see this, our favorite strapless piece from the collection. The Hint of Skin Underwire Contour Strapless Bra by Felina is one of the top performing strapless pieces we’ve ever seen. Molded memory foam cups and laser cut edging are just two of the many things to love in this signature piece from the lingerie experts, Felina. It must be worn to be believed.
4. And last, but not least, you absolutely must see what is widely considered to be one of the best sports bras ever designed. The Sports Bra by Enell utilizes both compression and encapsulation to prevent bounce. It’s superior construction is trusted by full figured athletes around the world.
1. Choose an underbust style garment with a strapless option: Underbust shapers like the Almighty Cincher by AMIA Shapewear rise to the area just below your bra. This style of shaper has several benefits that you might not have thought of. First, because you wear your own bra, you can adapt to a variety of necklines. This is a very versatile design! Secondly, the shaper supports your bust, giving lift. The result is an overall leaner and longer look.
2. For maximum curve creation, look for latex: Again, the Almighty Cincher or its counterpart, the Almighty Vest by AMIA, is a great place to start. The PowerLatex core of these garments creates maximum compression in your midsection. Of course, many garments also use varying amounts of latex to create shaping, so looking for this in the construction of a garment is a good place to start.
3. Flatter your fanny: Compression is a good thing, when you’re shopping for a shaper, but one area you may not want to compress is the bottom. In fact, many shapers feature special rear rounding designs that are meant to create lift in the area of the bottom, while trimming the tummy. The Alexandra by Vedette is one of our favorites
4. Built-in weight loss support: Love the way that latex shapes your silhouette? Choose the right garment and the shaping may last longer than you think. Garment with thermal latex panels or designs can increase thermal activity in the core, increasing blood flow and moving toxins. Studies have shown sustained loss of inches with long-term use. Check out The Ann Chery Chaleco Latex Vest.
5. Lose the lumps and bumps: Some of the most effective non-surgical treatments for cellulite come in the form of garments you can wear. Anti-cellulite shapers use techniques like micro-massage and enfused garments to smooth and create more even toned skin. The Dangerous Curves Capri Smoother Kit by Skineez Shapewear is a great place to start.

The time has finally come and you know that you’re ready to change. Your body. Your exercise plan. Your life.
What you may not know is that shapewear can play a huge influence in the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle and long term weight loss. Adding a shaper with support for weight loss is one of the most powerful tools you have at our discretion when you’re trying to make a commitment to changing your shape.
Let’s talk about how these work. Weight loss shapers use the science of compression to support a shift in your shape. Compression amps up thermal activity in your core, which has several important effects. Increased activity in the core means increased perspiration. When you sweat more you mobilize fat and toxins away from your midsection, which allows you to slim down faster.
Most shapers of this kind also encourage better posture. As you use your own muscles to sit up long and lean, those muscles are activated. When you slouch those muscles are not activated. Better posture leads to a stronger core overall.
Of course a shaper is only one piece of the healthy lifestyle puzzle. Eating right with an emphasis on vegetables and fruits is essential. Lean protein is a must when you’re trying to build muscle and lose fat. Walking 10,000 steps a day with a pedometer to track your progress is a great move. But adding a shaper to your overall plan is a great way to insure success in the next stage of your plan!
Note: We do not advise working out in the garments mentioned above. Exercise in these garments will lead to unnecessary wear and tear. Garments damaged due to improper use may not be returned.
Whether it’s back to school time for you or just cooler weather, the fall always signals a new crop of curve enhancing and eye-catching styles. Signature denims are back this year, but if you’ve touched on this trend before, you’ll still want to get a peek at some particularly eye-popping looks.
Butt-enhancing denims. Butt lift jeans. Levante cola. There are many ways to say it but, they’re all the same idea and what they accomplish is something special. Butt lifting jeans support, shape and lift your bottom without the addition of a shaper or padding. They perform this magic trick with a heart shaped seam that rounds around the top of the rear, tapering diagonally towards the thighs. Most of these jeans have a slightly high waist, which brings a slimming effect, accentuating your new hourglass figure.
But that’s only half of the fun! Brands like Verox bring a lot of flair with their curve enhancing power. Look for highlights like buckles, jewels, zippers and other sparkling details that set your pair of Verox jeans apart. This season we will be adding tons of new looks and dazzling colors, but you better act fast! These fresh seasonal style move quickly and new styles are introduced, so if you see something you love, you won’t want to miss out!
