    Colors for fall 2015

    Fashion Tips for Favorite Fall Colors 2015

    Welcome, fall!

    Who doesn't love the crisp air, the seasonal flavors, and of course the fashion that goes with it? While sipping on pumpkin-flavored everything, we're dreaming about all the colors we get to explore in our fall wardrobes.

    To stay current with trends, we recommend trying some of these crisp color combinations this fall. Pair them with shapewear for a head-turning look this season and beyond.

    Neon colors this fall

    1. Neon

    If you loved the 80s, then you are probably excited: hot electric shades are returning. Your best bet for pulling off flashy shades of pink and green without making an overstatement is at the gym. Add fluorescent hues to your workout band collection and you'll definitely turn heads.

    Brown Color for Fall

    1. Brown

    This fall favorite looks good on pretty much everyone. But to avoid looking bland, liven it up with richer colors like maroon or copper. For invisible shaping under neutrals, choose a nude color shaper or waist trainer; no one will ever suspect how you look so good.

    Winter Florals For Fall

    1. Winter Florals

    Florals in late fall and winter work well when rendered against a regal teal or red background. Pair with a firm compression shaper to ensure that your foundation is smooth and that the print lies perfectly on your figure.

    Winter cream for fall

    1. Winter Cream

    The latest take on winter white is a creamier version of one of the fashion world's favorite shades. White can be tricky to pull off, however, so you'll want to make sure your figure is slim and smooth. Your best bet is a nude all-over shaping garment like the Mid-Thigh Bodysuit by Amia.

    Black and White Graphics

    1. Black & White Graphics

    Black and white prints are genius because they can create an optical illusion. Wear this bold, street-savvy style so that it brings attention to the smallest part of your waist. Add a waist trainer to further emphasize the waistline.

    Brenton Stripes for fall

    1. Breton Stripes

    This can be a flattering form-fitting style if worn correctly. However, if the horizontal stripes emphasize the wrong areas, they can make you look larger. Choose a fitted garment that draws in at the waist, paired with a maximum compression shaper. This way the stripes highlight your curves in all the right places.

    Fall 2015 fashion trends & shapewear

    New York Fashion Week Recap—The Complete Fall 2015 Trend Guide

    The season is changing and it's time to prepare your fall wardrobe. Want to know what's most stylish this year? New York Fashion Week reveals the hottest trends.

    What you won't learn at Fashion Week is how to incorporate shapewear into your outfits. We're not all fashion models, but that doesn't mean we can't all look as stunning.

    Here is your guide to looking your very best in this season's trends by having the right foundation underneath:

    Fall 2015 Plaid Trend

    1. Plaid

    In a season when black and neutral colors can be dominant, it's nice to see some red to brighten up the mood. Plaid shirts are simple but can be sexy too. They look their best on a smooth foundation. To enhance this look, try a cami like the Control Camisole by Amia. If you want more overall shaping, try the High Waisted Thigh Shaper By Slim Me.

    Fall 2015 High Waisted Trend

    1. High Waisted

    This popular trend continues this year, resulting in an exaggerated hourglass silhouette with a tiny midsection and long, lean legs. No matter what your size, this style helps enhance your midsection. For the best results, pair high waisted pants or skirts with your favorite waist trainer. You can also use a high waisted panty like the Dana High Waist Panty Enhancer With Front Closure by Vedette.

    Short Skirts Fall 2015 Trend

    1. Short Skirts

    It's not too cold yet, so go ahead and show off those legs. This style creates a youthful silhouette, and the leg-lengthening effect is flattering on most body types. The best shapewear with a short skirt is a short leg, high waist shaper. The Daisy Thermal Slimmer Shorts by CoCoon creates a flat tummy, shaped rear and slim thighs.

    Fall 2015 Nouveau Victorian Trend

    1. Nouveau Victorian

    A lot has changed over time, but our Victorian predecessors knew how to dress a woman up in a sexy silhouette. Combine a traditional button-up look with some modern flair. Spice it up with brocade style corsets like the Silk Floral Brocade Corset.

    One Sleeve Fall 2015 Trend

    1. One Sleeve

    You can get a little adventurous this fall by showing off some shoulder. Your best option for a slim figure with one sleeve is a strapless or adjustable shaper like the Convertible Panty Shaper By Vedette.

  • How To Get Ready for the Day in 10 Minutes

    Quick hair & makeup tips for busy women

    Hair & Makeup Tips for Busy Women

    We've all been there: putting mascara on during a stoplight, dropping the kids off at school in our pajamas, or running errands with damp hair. If you're a busy working professional and/or mother, putting yourself together in the morning is often rushed.

    While it would be nice if there was an extra hour (or more) in the day, it can help to master a routine that takes 10 minutes or less to be out the door. (Yes, it's really possible!)

    Here are some foolproof tips for stepping up your morning game.

    Hair Prep (2 minutes)

    No time for a wash? No worries – you shouldn't wash your hair every day anyway, as it can dry it out. Try a dry shampoo instead and work it into your roots. Don't worry about your whole head; just tease out the tangles on the ends of your hair. For extra control, add a little olive oil with your fingertips.

    Hair Style (2 minutes)

    Pick a style that keeps your hair off your face that doesn't require heat. Experiment with buns or braids until your find a couple of personal favorites that work for you. Need ideas? Thank you, Pinterest.

    Face (1 minute)

    Do yourself a favor and cleanse your face thoroughly at night. Then simply rinse with water in the morning and apply your favorite tinted moisturizer or BB cream to even out your complexion.

    Mascara (1 minute)

    While your chosen foundation is setting in, use mascara with a curling and lengthening formula so you don't have to bother with a tool.

    Eyes (1 minute)

    Skip the liquid liner and use a shadow pencil, which provides good definition that stays put, but doesn't require as much precision application. Add to the lash line and smudge up to the crease.

    Concealer/Highlighter (2 minutes)

    Investing in a quality concealer is so worth it on rushed days. We recommend it in pen form. Use it to highlight your brow bone, erase dark circles under your eyes and hide any other skin imperfections.

    Finishing Touches (1 minute)

    Do whatever you like best: blush, finishing powder, scent. Tuck your favorite lip balm or gloss into your purse and you're good to go!

    Total time: 10 minutes

  • What to Wear Under 6 Sexy Summer Outfits

    The Right Shapewear for Summery Silhouettes

Think you can't get away with wearing shapewear underneath your light summer clothes? Think again. You can certainly show off your figure without showing off your secret.

    Here are six sexy summer outfits that are made perfect with the right shapewear underneath.

     Shapewear for short dresses

    1. Short skirts and dresses + Corselette by Amia

    If your hemline only reaches mid-thigh, a thong or even a regular panty just won't cut it if you get a warm summer breeze coming your way. The corselette provides a more modest bottom with a feminine touch of lace. It also provides all the power you need to keep your midsection looking smooth.

  • 3 Pieces of Figure-Slimming Apparel that Will Revolutionize Your Wardrobe

    Shaping apparel can revolutionize your closet.

    Transform the Way You Look and Feel

    Are you in need of a closet makeover? In your ideal wardrobe, every piece of clothing should make you look great and feel great. The secret to looking like a model everyday isn't having endless drawers of clothes; it's having just a few basic pieces that flatter your figure and can be mixed and matched with almost anything. From there, you can layer on your favorite accent pieces.

    You should look for comfort, style and versatility in those basic garments. A shaping tank for layering, body-sculpting leggings, and of course a flattering pair of jeans are a great start. Here are some of our favorite figure slimming apparel:

    1. The Scoop Skinny Shaping Top by Cass Luxury

    This isn't your ordinary tank top. Seamless stretch microfiber provides extraordinary comfort with moderate slimming that stays in place. Control your bust and midsection, down to just beneath your hips. And whether you wear this tank on its own or underneath other tops, you stay cool in breathable, moisture-wicking side panels. That microfiber also provides odor control, so you can be cool and confident all day long.

    1. Lala Moderate Control Shaper Leggings by Cass Luxury

    Leggings are a must-have for any modern woman, so why have not some that enhance your figure? Instead of layering your shapewear, sometimes it just makes sense to shape your figure with your apparel. These leggings lift and define your rear while slimming your whole midsection, hiding your muffin top and love handles. Unlike many leggings that can make you feel hot and sticky, these are constructed with moisture-wicking breathable fabric to keep you cool, with a seamless, tagless finish.

    1. Booty-Enhancing Skinny Jeans by Verox Jeans

    It's no secret we love Verox's butt-lifting jeans. They provide lift and enhancement for your backside, while smoothing your hips, thighs and lower abdomen. The secret is the stitching and cut of the pant, which provide perfect shaping. If you think skinny jeans aren't for you, you just haven't tried the right pair yet. These are the pants you'll go to again and again because they're comfortable and they effortlessly make you look sexier the minute you put them on.

    Revolutionizing your wardrobe doesn't have to be a huge process. You don't need to a ton of clothes; you need to be smarter about the basics. We hope these pieces provide the inspiration you need to transform your look every day.

  • 4 Reasons to Use Shaping Leggings

  • How to Choose the Right Shapewear Foundation

    Shapewear tips for every occasion

    5 Tips for a Flawless Look Every Day

    Newsflash: every woman can benefit from shapewear. Don't believe us? Even celebrities with fabulous figures rely on shapers to perfect their look on the red carpet. Shapewear isn't just for special occasions; with the right piece you can create the most flattering looks for your body every day.

    While the use of shapewear is growing in popularity and acceptance, many women are still skeptical or not exactly sure how to use it. Remember this key purpose: no matter what you're wearing, no matter what size you are, you want your foundation to be smooth, like a mannequin.

    If you want to look flawless in every outfit, then you should have several types of shapewear rotating through your wardrobe. Ready to take the plunge? Here are some ways you can ensure you're choosing the right shapewear for your needs.

    1. Choose the right size

    We can't stress enough the importance of following our size charts when selecting a garment. It's tempting to want to go smaller, especially if you're trying to lose weight, but don't do it! Shapewear that is too small is actually unflattering and will not provide the ideal results. In the case that you're in between sizes, choose the larger one.

    1. Choose a target area

    Everyone has different "problem areas," so choose which one you want to focus on. The midsection, thighs and rear are some of the most common. You can also use garments for all-over shaping.

    1. Dress for the occasion

    You're not going to wear the same shaper at work that you are for a wedding. For special occasions you'll probably want shapers that are designed to wear under gowns, while for everyday work attire you'll want comfortable all-day solutions.

    1. Choose a compression level

    How dramatic do you want you're results to be? Maximum control shapers like waist trainers can help you slim down instantly by a size or more, while lightweight shapers provide smoothing with the most breathability and comfort. 

    1. Try on and wear correctly

    Always try on your shapewear before removing the tags and be sure that you're putting it on correctly (wear panties underneath during a fitting). You should always step into it, even some camis and tanks. Be sure you've adjusted any straps; if there are hooks, be sure they are secured firmly and comfortably. Try on your clothes over your shapewear too, to ensure you're getting the results you want. Remember, you can always exchange a garment that doesn't fit quite right.
