For ultimate, carefree midsection control, invest in the Almighty Cincher or Almighty Vest by AMIA. AMIA midsection shapers instantly deliver the tummy control and back support that you need now and has lasting results. The Almighty Cincher and the Almighty Vest both visibly reduce the waistline by one to three inches, with many users reporting one to four inches of sustained loss after wearing the shaper for 30 days.
The lower abdomen is one of the most difficult areas of the body to control and minimize, even with proper exercise and diet. Postpartum mommies and post-surgical patients especially struggle with getting adequate support for this area. Luckily, the Supreme Panty Shaper by AMIA utilizes a Supreme PowerLatex core to instantly smooth and reduce the midsection, while the tri-layer shaping technology lifts the bust and lengthens the spine for an overall longer, leaner appearance. Likewise, the Squeem Compression Panty Shaper has the proper reinforcement to firm and flatten the lower abdomen while promoting long-term weight loss.
The struggle of shapewear is achieving a sleek silhouette without flattening a curvy bum. The Alexandra by Vedette can whittle your waist while celebrating your curves and giving your rear a lift. Don’t hide it – flaunt it! The Perfect Butt Thermal Pant by Flakisima is the ultimate rear shaper if you don’t want shaping control throughout the entire midsection. This lightweight rear shaper comes up just above the navel for lower abdomen support with its thermal tummy control panel, but the real treat comes from its open-back design that lifts and rounds out the derriere.
Thigh shapers are wonderful in that they typically shape the lower abdomen, hips, rear, and thighs all at once. If you’re looking to slim down your thighs without sacrificing your sexy shape, try The Catwalk Firm Control High-Waist Long Leg by Body Wrap. This ultra lightweight thigh shaper provides excellent control while remaining breathable all day. The Slimming Thigh Shaper by Lytess is also an excellent choice, especially if you don’t need the full coverage of the long leg, high rise Catwalk Firm Control shaper. The Slimming Thigh Shaper offers hip reduction up to 5.5 cm and thigh reduction up to 3.1 cm via caffeine micro-capsules that mobilize and reduce fat in problem areas.
Nothing completes an outfit like a great set of shapely legs and a confident strut. The High Waist Get Fit Tight by ShaToBu trims and tones while increasing calorie burn as you go about your regular day, as it incorporates the principles of resistance training with special bands woven directly into the tights. For less coverage with the same comfortable, firm support, try the Smooth Couture High Waist Tight by Va Bien. This high-waist, capri-length thigh shaper is equipped with a seamless control waistband, reinforced tummy panel, and Power Net control.
One place that most of us overlook when considering shapewear is the back. The back is subject to getting lumps created by restrictive bras and other clothing, and sometimes just needs some extra support during a long day. The SlimVest by Squeem visibly reduces the waist and tummy by one to four inches in the long-term while instantly slimming you down up to three sizes. The Diva Corselette by AMIA also supports your back, and it has the added benefit of a PowerLatex core and tri-layer slimming technology. The Diva Corselette is a step-through undergarment that also pays special attention to the hips for a smooth silhouette throughout.
Some women want to slim their curves, and others want to enhance them. The Hippie Hip and Butt Padded Brief by Bubbles Bodywear gives you a bit of oomph around your derriere. This shaper instantly enhances curves with two removable pads that reach from the hip around to the center of the backside. For those that would prefer to slim the hips, go for the High Waisted Shaping Shorts by MeMoi. This lightweight fiber hip shaper is perfect for daily wear, smoothing throughout the midsection down to the lower thigh for an overall bombshell shape.
What do all female (and some male) celebrities have in common? Body shapers! It’s Hollywood’s little secret, and now you can pull it off, too. For all-over control and a phenomenal figure, try the Celebrity Style Body Shaper by Leonisa. This airy, lightweight shaper utilizes PowerNet construction for great control and reshaping from the underbust to the mid-thigh. To look your best from head to toe, you should also go for the Sophie Braless Long Leg Bodysuit by Vedette. Vedette, a staple brand in the shapewear industry, has created a lightweight full body shaper that controls the hips, tummy, and love-handles with instantly lean legs and thighs.

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.
The little lumps and bumps of cellulite. Yes, you have them…so do we. And thanks to supermarket magazines, we know that every female celebrity in the world has cellulite too! In fact, the vast majority of women, regardless of their size, will develop some cellulite in their lifetime.
Now that we’ve established that we’re all in the same boat, let’s get to the good news! In recent years, the first truly effective at home solutions for cellulite have begun to appear on the market. While these products may not permanently erase cellulite, they do reduce its appearance effectively.
Most anti-cellulite products fall into one of two categories. The first of these is topical treatments. Topical treatments are usually creams or oils that you vigorously massage into the skin to create a smoother look with time. One of our favorite topical treatments is the Cellufit Body Contour Oil by Mambino Organics. Mambino in an incredible company, offering a complete line of safe, delicious-smelling products for new moms, moms to be, or anyone who wants effective and safe skincare. Pair this oil with a handheld cellulite massager after a shower and massage the affected areas to reduce lumps and bumps and create more even toned skin.
But one of the most exciting developments in anti-cellulite technology is the creation of special toning garments that use their construction to reduce the visible appearance of cellulite. These can work in several ways. Often massage is a key factor… or should we say micro-massage. For example, Wacoal, one of your most trusted brands, has developed their iPant line, which uses Novarel Slim® nylon microfiber infused with microcapsules of caffeine to micromassage and mobilize fat. Add in vitamin E, ceramides, retinol and aloe vera and you’re left with smoothed moisturized and firmed skin. Their iPant Anti-Cellulite Cupless Cami and iPant Anti-cellulite Hi-Waist Long Leg Shaper make a perfect set!
And if you’re looking to add anti-cellulite technology to your workout, one of the biggest breakthroughs in this field can be found in Delfin Spa’s activewear line, which uses Bio-ceramic material. This composite reflects your body’s Far Infrared Rays, the part of the light spectrum that generates heat. These rays are redirected deep into the tissues that contain cellulite. Increasing thermal activity in this layer of skin maximizes the work your muscles are already doing, improving circulation, breaking down toxins and mobilizing fat cells.
This is your year. With the New Year comes new resolve, but you can strengthen your commitment to a healthy lifestyle and your confidence by adding the power of a shaping or weight loss garment.
If you’ve recently begun a workout regimen, we recommend the addition of shaping activewear to your wardrobe. Choosing a garment that shapes and slims you when you’re in the gym, is a wonderful way to increase confidence now and feel your best as you become fit. The Champion Shape collection is a great place to start.
For many of us the midsection is an area of particular interest. If you’d like support for long-term slimming, consider adding a Workout Band to increase thermal activity and fat mobilization in the core.
If cellulite is a concern, there are many shapers that help reduce visible dimpling in the legs, thighs and buttocks, but we love the Delfin Spa line because it specifically created for activewear. Its bio-ceramic construction uses your body’s own heat to fight cellulite and slim you.
Looking through the pages of magazines, you might find yourself momentarily convinced that cellulite is the exception rather than the rule when it comes to women’s bodies. But don’t be fooled. The first thing to know about cellulite is that from large to small, women of every size and shape live with the little lumps and bumps of cellulite. That’s right. Everyone from the voluptuous Kim Kardashian to the athletic Hillary Swank has what you have in one form or another. It’s a biological fact. The second thing to realize about cellulite is that there is no “cure.”
But neither of the above facts mean that you have to live with cellulite the way that it is. There are many things you can do to address the visible appearance of this natural and near universal phenomenon. As cellulite is one of the most common complaints of our clientele, we offer many ways to address unevenness in the skin caused by this normally occurring process.
One of our favorite companies is Mambino Organics, so when they introduced a cellulite treatment to their already awesome line of all natural, organic botanical solutions, we decided to try it without a second thought. And boy were we right to try it. The combination of their Cellulite Body Massager and their Cellufit BodyContour Oil was the one-two punch we were looking for. Use the serum and massage vigorously to reduce the look of dimpling.
But cosmetic solutions are only the beginning when it comes to this shaping science. We are incredibly excited by the results we’re seeing with anti-cellulite garments. Lytess was a real innovator in this field and their active ingredient micro-encapsulated Corrective High-Waist Push-Up Shaper and their Slimming Leggings remain two of the most effective tools in the war on cellulite. Active ingredients like caffeine and shea butter have been shown to treat the look of lumps and bumps. Simply wear the garments and the combination compression, micro-massage and the active ingredients in the fabric do the work.
And if you like Lytess, you’ll love the Thigh Slimmer Kit by Skineez. This complete treatment includes an infused garment that treats the look of cellulite (while helping you to lose inches in the thigh area) as well as a re-charger spray so that your garment will always be its most potent.
While there is no cure for cellulite, we are pleased and hopeful about the breakthroughs in cellulite reduction and adding more tools of the trade as they are innovated.
But because their mission is to help women look, feel and be the best that they can be, they didn’t stop at making world class body shapers. Their motto is “AMIA: Where Great Women Begin” and they take it very seriously. Service is at the core of who AMIA is as a company Understanding it takes a community to create great women, they partnered with the Women’s Alliance, donating one dollar from every sale to help provide professional attire, job training and mentoring to underprivileged women. Assisting these women and their families can be the key to breaking the cycle of poverty, not just for them, but for their children and whole communities. Having said that, allow us to make an introduction…
First up, the Supremes: the Supreme Panty Shaper and Supreme Thong Shaper. These convertible, underbust pieces are a great place to start if you want a fundamental piece that comfortably shapes without show through under almost any item of clothing. Maintaining a balance of comfort and control, these are wearable, effective, everyday garments that create a smooth, slimmed silhouette allowing you to feel cool and confident.
Next, we have the Almighty line. The Almighty Vest and the Almighty Cincher dramatically and immediately reduce your midsection, creating a slender hourglass waist and improving posture for an overall more attractive shape. But that’s just the beginning. Users wearing the Almighty line for extended periods report sustained reshaping and loss of 1-2 inches.
And last, but certainly not least we have the Diva, their lingerie look body shaper. The Diva Corselette lace boyshort bottom bodysuit is the kind of sexy shapewear you can’t wait to show off. With it’s feminine detailing and ribbon accents, this is a piece in which pretty meets powerful.
We are proud to carry this line and of the service to our community that working with AMIA allows us to be a part of. We look forward to sharing their vision with all of you as we introduce AMIA Shapewear to the Hourglass Angel. Join us!
