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.
