    Whether you're planning a special date for Sweetest Day or for any special day, you'll want to look your best. Pair a sweet outfit with a sexy shaper and you've got a combo that will keep your date's undivided attention the whole evening.

    Looking for some new ideas for how to dress up for your night out? Check out some of these trendy styles:


    Polished separates: Pair your favorite striped tee with a blazer for a stylish yet carefree evening look. Push up your sleeves and half-tuck your shirt to look laid back.

    Leather: Try leather leggings or a pencil skirt with some strappy shoes and a sexy tank for a look that really turns heads.

    Concert casual: If you're planning on something low-key, you can't go wrong with your favorite skinny jeans and a vintage concert tee. Make your outfit sexier with your favorite pointy heels.


    Little black dress: This classic never fails. For a sweet twist, wear colored heels.

    Bold print: If you like to have fun, show it off! A boldly patterned dress will make an attention-getting statement.

    Printed leggings: Make this girly look super sexy by pairing it with a sheer top and matching bra.


    Crop top and high waist: You can really dress up a crop top with a high-waisted midi-or maxiskirt. Just show a little skin and leave the rest to the imagination.

    Sundress and jean jacket: A casual dress transforms into a great date night look with a cute jacket and booties.

    Colored denim: This is a great way to draw attention to your legs. Don't forget your heels!


    V-neck jumpsuit: Did you know that your collarbone is extremely sexy? Wear a v-neck jumpsuit to draw more attention to your neckline, which will look even better with your cinched midsection.

    Bright-colored dress: If the date involves dancing, try a flashy color that compliments your skin tone.

    Jeans and a striped shirt: With an outfit that's fitted and comfortable, you can look perfectly casual and perfectly sexy.


    Flirty floral top: Wear a tasteful lingerie-inspired top for some classy flirting.

    Strategic cutouts: For a riskier but gorgeous look, try a dress with sheer illusion panels or cutouts. 

    Miniskirt: Make your legs look long! Try pairing with a tank and a blazer, along with some tall booties to add to the length.


    Matching separates: Visually tantalizing and powerfully magnetic. The latest trend to come is the game of matching separates. Try print or pattern corresponding top to bottom for a trendy look.

    Have fun, get a little flirty and enjoy your Sweetest Day!

  • 5 Ways to Wear a Corset for Halloween

    Sexy Corset Halloween Costumes

    Your Guide for Spookily Sexy Costumes

    Halloween is around the corner, and if you've got any big party plans, you'll want to look hot! It's that special time of year when you can go all-out with your party attire, get a little flirty and show off your figure.

    Skip the poor-fitting attire from the costume shop and build a fabulously sexy costume using a corset!

    Here are five ways you can use corsets to put together endless costume ideas:

    1. Corset Over a Blouse

    Find a soft, pretty blouse and put a lacy corset over the top. You'll look like a saloon girl in a snap. To look like an authentic lady of the Old West, wear a flowing or lacy skirt. For a more modern sexy cowgirl look, wear with skinny jeans and cowboy boots. Be sure that the corset is long enough to cover the top of your pants or skirt.

    The  Classic Curves Lace Overbust Corset Set By Hourglass Angel is a great option for this costume style.

    2. Vintage Styles

    You can wear any vintage style like Marilyn Monroe or 1960s Mad Men-inspired housewife and have the perfect hourglass shape to pull it off. A lot of older styles were designed to be worn with girdles and corsets. Have no fear of the fitted bodice when you've got a corset underneath!

    Many corsets will get the job done beautifully, like the Nude Sand Underbust Corset.

    3. Formal and Bridal Style

    There are a lot of ways you can go formal on Halloween, like zombie bride or killer prom queen. A corset will perfect your shape. Use one underneath a number of formal dress styles, or as the bodice itself paired with a flowing skirt.

    You can't go wrong with a bridal piece like the Graceful Bride Longline Convertible Bustier by Va Bien.

    4. Goth Style Corsets

    This is the perfect time to go Goth. Be a sexy vampire, witch or any other dark lady. A black or dark-colored corset works best, over a long, slinky skirt -- at least knees length, but with slits if desired. Great accessories include heels and thigh-highs with garter belts.

    For Goth, choose a black corset like the Classic Sweetheart Shape Corset by Bonitaz.

    5. Burlesque Corsets

    If you've ever been too timid to try burlesque style, why not give it a try on Halloween? A corset is the foundation of any burlesque girl's outfit. To be truly burlesque all you'll need is a skimpy bottom underneath, but you can use more clothing if desired, like a lacy skirt.

    For burlesque you'll need a flashy corset like the Sparkling Silhouette Overbust Corset by Eurotique.

  • How to Prevent Your Shapewear from Rolling Down


    Getting the Most Flattering and Comfortable Results

    When you're dressed to impress the last thing you want is your figure-enhancing shaper to migrate out of place! If yours is rolling, bunching or sliding, you're either not wearing the right size or you're not using the ideal garment for your figure.

    This problem can easily be prevented when you know what types of shapewear works best for you. Equip yourself with some basic shapewear knowledge and you'll never have to battle with roll-down again.

    Wear the Right Size

    While it might be tempting to try a size too small in order to slim down a bit more, you'll find that it has the opposite effect! If your garment is rolling down or compressing you in an unflattering way, it might be because it just doesn't fit correctly. For the best results, use a shaper true to your size; if you're in between sizes, then go a size up. You'll still achieve smooth and slim results, without bunching and discomfort.

    Choose an Ideal Control Level

    Shapers come in several levels of control. Maximum control garments use up to three plies of fabric, heavy support stitching and/or boning. If they fit correctly, they're not going anywhere. Strong control garments are a step down from maximum control, typically with two plies of fabric and sometimes boning. Likewise, they are unlikely to shift out of place with the correct fit. Where you can run into more problems is in light control garments, which typically use one ply of soft, stretchy fabric. If your light control shaper isn't staying in place the way you want it to, it might not be the ideal level of control for you. But if you prefer the level of comfort and flexibility that light control garments provide, try a different size or style.

    Choose Your Most Figure-Flattering Style

    There is no one-size-fits-all shaping solution, which is why it's important to determine what style of garment is going to enhance your figure the most. In particular, if you're trying to shape your midsection, you'll want to use a garment designed to prevent muffin top. Try a shaper that provides coverage all the way up to your bra line, which either uses strong control or shoulder straps to keep it in place. Bodysuits, cinchers and high-waisted panties are all great waist-shrinking solutions, but you might prefer one over the other for your body's needs.

    Shop according to your shape!

    Try a Variety

    It might take some trial and error to figure out what works best for your body, so we recommend trying a variety of solutions! Worst case scenario, if you're dissatisfied with a shaper's performance, send it back and try something else. But chances are, you'll find several styles that are ideal for you that you'll want to regularly rotate through your wardrobe.

  • What's Your Natural Body Type?



    How to Shape and Flatter Your Natural Curves

    Every body is beautiful. That's right; every single curve in your body is naturally gorgeous. Do you agonize over getting your body to look proportionally like an hourglass? If you do, you should understand that very few women naturally have that shape.

    Stop agonizing and take a look at your body just as it is. Even if you want to lose weight, you can identify what natural body type you have.

    Instead of trying to squeeze and hide parts of your body to look unnatural, emphasize what you do have! You can feel confident in your own skin with the right attire, including shapers designed for your natural shape.

    To determine your body type, stand naked in front of a mirror or grab some measuring tape to measure your proportions. Refer to these guidelines whenever you shop and you'll look ravishing for every occasion!


    Hourglass Figure

    If you're a natural hourglass, your shoulders and hips are proportionally the same size while your waistline is smaller. Your waist is eight to ten inches smaller than your bust and hips measurements.

    When you dress, you'll want to emphasize your narrow waist without adding too much extra bulk or attention to your bust or your bottom. Clinging and wrapping tops work well, as well as soft fabrics and solid colors. Wear attire that lengthens your torso and legs like high-waisted pants and skirts, and form-fitting jackets. You may also want extra length to your legs by wearing heels.

    For shapers that lengthen your look and emphasize your slim waist, try the Mid-Thigh Bodysuit by Amia and Corselette by AMIA. The Ann Chery Geraldine Bodysuit will also slim the waist, abdomen, and hips, creating a beautiful, voluptuous shape.


    Inverted Triangle Figure

    If you have prominent shoulders that are wider than your hips, you're an inverted triangle. You most likely have a large chest and a straight waist.

    Your main objectives when dressing are defining your waist and softening your shoulders. Avoid embellishment around the shoulders and neckline and try to add emphasis to your hips with designs like pocket details and pleats.

    Shapers that work well wonderfully for inverted triangles figures include the Vest by Amia, the Lilian High Back Underbust Body Shaper by Vedette, and the CoCoon Perfect Fit Braless T-Shirt, all of which firmly shape your waistline and providing extra support for your bust.


    Rectangle Figure

    As a rectangle shape, your shoulders, waist, bust and hips are all relatively close in size. Your waist is less than 25 percent smaller than your bust or hips.

    Your goal in styling is to emphasize your feminine curves. Wear cuts that are interesting and draw attention to your bust and hips.

    Shapers can be very helpful in creating curves. The Hippie Hip and Butt Padded Brief by Bubbles Bodywear, the Alexandra Butt Lifting Shaper, and the Vedette Dayanna Open Bottom Body Shaper with Front Closure are all fabulous butt-enhancing options.


    Pear Figure

    If your hips are wider than your shoulders and bust, you're a pear shape. You may enjoy the benefits of a well-defined waistline and rounded hips and bottom.

    Your main style objective is to lengthen your silhouette so you'll look balanced from top to bottom. Highlight the top half of your body to contrast the lower half. Draw the eye to your neckline and shoulders, while emphasizing your slim waist. Wear dark and plain on your lower half to elongate your legs.

    You may benefit from a garment like the Backless Body Shaper with Bikini Bottom by Fullness, which creates a smooth curve throughout your torso while giving your bust a nice lift. For slimming and control of your hips, thighs and butt, try Stephanie by Vedette or High Waisted Shaping Shorts by MeMoi.


    Apple Figure

    If you're an apple, your shoulders and hips are about the same size. Your bust and waist measurements are similar, while your hips are about six inches smaller than your bust.

    Women with apple silhouettes typically have lovely busts, so wear tops with low necklines or small collars. Your challenge is the lack of a waistline, so choose styles that draw attention away from your tummy and emphasize your arms, legs and chest. Empire cuts, flared and trouser legs, and wrap dresses are all great examples.

    Shapers that work for apples include the Cincher by Amia and Evonne by Vedette, which create a smooth waistline and lift the bust. The Vedette Dayanna Open Bottom Body Shaper with Front Closure also shapes a waistline while giving your butt and hips a nice lift as well.

    Maternity Shaping Options for Pre- and Post-Pregnancy


    Relieving Discomfort and Looking Fabulous in Through Pregnancy

    Congratulations, mom-to-be! Whether this is your first pregnancy or a later one, you're undoubtedly full of a range of emotions as you anticipate the growth of your belly and your family.

    One of the fun parts of pregnancy is deciding what you're going to wear! Just because you're going to be much rounder in the coming months doesn't mean that you can't look fashionable and sexy, while staying comfortable.

    Before you go on a maternity shopping spree, consider that a huge factor in looking and feeling great during pregnancy is what you're wearing underneath your maternity outerwear. Maternity shapewear and support garments are designed for maximum comfort and help your growing body look smooth and attractive. They can even do wonders relieving common aches and pains you may experience during the later months.


    Maternity Bras: Giving the Ladies a Lift

    One of the first things you may notice within days of discovering you're pregnant is tenderness and swelling in your breasts. Supportive maternity bras are an investment worth making early in the pregnancy because your breasts are only going to get larger and heavier. In fact, they're a major contributor to back and shoulder pain if you wear the wrong bra.

    Good maternity bras have wide, comfortable straps and full, supportive cups. Whether or not you should use bras with underwires is a personal preference. If your breasts are particularly tender, you may want to do without them.

    TCompression Tops: Supported and Smooth Torso

    Camis can be your best friend when you're layering your outfits during pregnancy. A quality top provides enough compression to give your bust and your belly a lift and smooth your bump, without sacrificing comfort. If a top is long enough, you may even be able to pull it over your unbuttoned non-maternity pants and provide shaping and support for your hips.

    Compression tops are also a must-have during the postpartum period. They'll pull in all of the stretched out areas of your belly and provide light abdominal support while you heal and regain your pre-pregnancy shape. And if you plan on breastfeeding, you'll love wearing compression nursing tops around the clock!

    SSupport Bands and Belts: For Support and Relief

    As your belly grows, you'll discover just how taxing a tiny baby can be on your body. Stretching ligaments and extra weight can cause a variety of aches and discomforts, including low and middle back pain, round ligament pain, pelvic pain, varicose veins and swelling in your legs.

    Support bands and belts can provide instant relief to some of these common conditions, particularly if you're on your feet a lot. These garments come in a wide range of designs and strengths. Strong support belts effectively redistribute the weight of your belly to lessen whatever strains you're experiencing. Some bellybands function fashionably, enabling you to wear your unbuttoned non-maternity pants under them.

    After pregnancy you might also benefit from a postpartum belt or cincher to help you regain a slender shape as your body heals.

    BCompression Bottoms: Additional Support Down Below

    Depending on the season and how much extra support you want, you may benefit from maternity compression panties or stockings. Most provide the same benefits as abdominal bands but go a step further with support around your pelvic area and thighs. Stockings will also provide instant relief for swelling and varicose veins in your lower extremities.

    Like much maternity shapewear, compression bottoms additionally work well in the postpartum period, improving your circulation and providing support as your body regains its shape.
