    We like to talk a lot about getting makeovers; there's something refreshing and exciting about changing your whole look. While on some occasions you might go for new makeup, a new hairstyle or a new style of clothing, when it comes to your body you need to start at the foundation.

    A shape makeover might be just the thing you need to transform you figure, your posture and your confidence. If you really want to look and feel great day after day, there are a variety of options that are ideal for every occasion.

    1. Waist cinchers and corsets

  • 4 Easy Fixes for Formal Dresses

    Figure fixes for formal attire

    Enhance Your Figure for Weddings, Proms & Special Occasions

    Formal season is about to be in full swing, and it's a time to make memories and look your finest. Finding that perfect dress for your special event doesn't have to be stressful. We all have our little "problem areas," but there is a shaping solution for each one. If you know where you need a little help, you'll want to have what you need as a staple in your formal wardrobe. For the best results we recommend taking your favorite shapewear along with you for your fittings.

    Here are four easy fixes for common issues in formalwear:

    Need #1: Fuller Bust

    Solution: Invisible Breast Enhancers

    It can be frustrating to try on a dress that is loose around the bustline, even if it's the right size. Ideally you can simply wear your favorite push-up bra, but with some dress styles that's all but impossible. Enter one of our favorite products for formal attire: breast enhancers like Magicups by Braza and NuBra Invisble Breast Enhancer. These adhere to your breasts and give them a natural boost without revealing any straps or seams. These are especially useful for plunging necklines and backless styles.

    Need #2: Slimmer Midsection

    Solution: Waist-Slimming Corset

    When you want to look stunning in a gown, you don't want to draw attention to any bulk in your midsection. Nothing works like a classic corset, which pulls tight to make your waist slimmer, while smoothing out bumps. You may even find that while wearing a corset you drop a size or two in the dress! For bridal gowns and other special occasion attire we recommend the All Laced Up Underbust Corset by Timeless Trends, which can be paired with the bra style of your choice. This is a great option for a form-fitting dress style like mermaid; it can also help if you're trying to fit into a smaller size.

    Need #3: Fuller Butt

    Solution: Padded Panties

    Many form-fitting dresses give you the opportunity to show off your backside. Think you don't have the curves to pull it off? You do now with some padded panties that will round and lift your rear. The Roundabout Booty Booster String Bikini Panties by Fullness will provide the curves to fill out your dress.

    Need #4: Slimmer Thighs

    Solution: Thigh-Slimming Bodysuit

    Dreaming of smooth and sexy legs as part of your silhouette under your gown? Even if your thighs are a problem area, you can tame them with the right thigh-smoothing bodysuit. We recommend the Mid-Thigh Bodysuit by Amia, which creates a slimmer, smoother silhouette from above your waistline to mid-thigh. It ends in lace that lies flat, so you can feel feminine and not worry about revealing any lines.

  • Back to Black

    Background on black lingerie

    Tantalizing yet timeless, black lingerie has become synonymous with seduction. But this wasn’t always the case. Black clothing and lingerie has an interesting history dating back to the Victorian Era. Curious?

    After her husband passed, a woman was expected to be in mourning for over two years. An important part of this ritual was wearing black clothing head to toe, including accessories and underwear. She was also expected to live a secluded, celibate life—yet a widow could move more freely in society more than an unmarried woman (one of the many paradoxes of this time). During this period, some widows opted for more on-trend, of-the-moment black fashions including lace and silk. And with these styles came matching black corsets and undergarments. This behavior created the link between black lingerie and deviance. The next step? Black lingerie and sex appeal.

    This association was further solidified in movies of the early twentieth century, and later with film noir and femme fatales of the 40s. Usually black lingerie was part of a dangerous woman’s plans of seduction—and a visual reminder of dominance and sexual power.

    In the 50s, lingerie began to look refined and chic to match the quintessential little black dress of the times. Fast-forward to today and black lingerie is a given in women’s top drawers. It’s the ultimate way to flatter your figure and feel unstoppably confident.

    Black lingerie is equally perfect for everyday wear and special behind-closed-door moments. Celebrate black lingerie with these stunning styles.

  • 7 Simple Ways to Feel Sexy

    7 ways to feel sexy.  Have a case of the ho-hums? Maybe it’s the winter slump (too many grey days and not enough Vitamin D) or it’s just been too long since you did something solely for yourself. It’s time to break the spell. Here are 7 small ways to get back on track. After all, feeling good and feeling sexy go hand-in-hand.

    1. Indulge in the small stuff.

    Whether it’s a mani/pedi or a long bath with candles, little pampering moments can go a long way. If nothing else, they’re a reminder that you deserve it. And confidence equals sexiness.

    2. Slip on some high heels.

    Pumps can give you a lift in more ways than one. Whether you wear them with jeans, a dress or lingerie, high heels will boost your sprits. Next step? Strut your stuff.

    3. Exercise in nature.

    Get endorphins pumping and you’ll feel better in an instant. These chemicals alter your mindset, refresh your senses and give you a burst of feel-good energy.

    4. Repeat a mantra.

    Sometimes you need to fake it ‘til you make it. And the best part? It works. Stand in front of a mirror and say nice things to yourself—all the things you’d say to a good friend or sister. For example: “I am beautiful. I am confident. I am loved.” 

    5. Laugh.

    Laughter releases the good chemicals in your brain. Pull up YouTube or go to a comedy club for some guaranteed giggles. Smiling and laughing causes a ripple effect…next thing you know, you’ll feel back to your sexy self.

    6. Switch things up.

    Routines can be the enemy. Try something novel, like a cooking class (many are free at cooking stores) or a day trip to stimulate your mind, body and life.

    7. Try new shapewear.

    Create an hourglass shape with stunning shapers and lingerie. You’ll love the way you look. And a little lace never hurt anything either. Even if you keep it a secret, wearing a seductive corset under your clothes is a surefire way to feel sexier instantly.
