        8 Reasons to Own a Rear Shaper

        08.18.2014-Blog-Redesign

        No matter what your shape or size, chances are you have wrestled with your wardrobe to make your butt look it’s best. It’s difficult because everyone is shaped differently. Unless you have a personal tailor, few articles of clothing are naturally going to fit well.

        That’s why every woman can benefit from a rear shaper. If you don’t have one in your dresser, here are some reasons that may convince you that you’re missing out:

        Enhance Your Rear

        Even if you work out every day, it’s difficult if not impossible to change the shape of your butt. Since very few women are naturally endowed with a perfectly round and firm shape, a rear shaper can save you a lot of fuss and make your butt look perfect in an instant.

        Shape Your Silhouette

        Your hourglass figure wouldn’t be complete without a round and smooth bottom half! A rear shaper completes the shape of your feminine silhouette.

        Help Your Clothes Fit Best

        Have you ever had the perfect pair of jeans that was comfortable and also highlighted your best features? With a rear shaper, you might discover that a lot more of your clothes fit like that! Clothes are designed to look good on mannequins, and a shaper can help your body be smooth and contoured in the same way.

        Slim Your Lower Abdomen

        One of the peskier areas in women’s figures is the lower abdomen, even if you’ve been diligently going to the gym. With most rear shapers, you’ll get the added benefit of slimming for your front too. Instant results, without the workout.

        Shape Your Hips

        It’s all part of the same package. A shaper that creates a firm and round butt also creates firm and curvy hips.

        Trim Your Tummy

        To provide a lift for your butt, many rear shapers provide coverage all the way to your waistline. So you’ll also enjoy smooth control for your tummy and midsection, for an all-around sleeker figure.

        Support Your Rear

        Let’s face it, for many women the butt can droop simply because it’s made of fattier tissue. It may not matter how firm your glutes are. Use a rear shaper and put aside your insecurities.

        Eliminate Muffin Top

        Complete your look from top to bottom with a rear shaper that provides smooth shaping starting at your midsection. You’ll never worry about any unsightly muffin top above your pants’ waistline again.

          8 Reasons to Own a Hip & Thigh Shaper

          08.11.2014-Blog-Design

          Whether you’re already familiar with the benefits of shapewear or you’re just starting to discover them, make sure you’ve got your wardrobe stocked with hip and thigh shapers. These garments are an indispensable part of perfecting your figure, whether you’re going to the gym or you’re dressing up in a formal gown.

          Here are eight reasons why these shapers should be an essential part of your collection:

          Slim Your Silhouette

          Having trouble squeezing into that cute skirt or those tight pants? Watch your lower half shrink a size or more in an instant with a hip and thigh shaper. You’ll enjoy an overall slimming effect.

          Support Your Lower Body

          Whether you spend all day on your feet or sit in an office chair, you can put a lot of stress on your pelvis, thighs and lower back. Work to fix that problem with compression fabrics that can provide support all day long. You might end the day feeling more energized and able to do what you love.

          Shape Your Thighs and Hips

          As the name suggests, these shapers mold your thighs and hips into an ideal shape. So whether you need to size down and smoothen your thighs, or give your hips a little more curve, there’s a shaper that can meet your body’s specific needs.

          Contour Your Figure

          Your figure won’t be flattened in a quality hip and thigh shaper. On the contrary, with the right shaper you’ll achieve a contoured figure with curves in all the right places. Your silhouette will never look sexier.

          Put an End to Thigh Rubbing

          Nothing makes a workout or time spent on your feet worse than the misery of chafing thighs! The solution to your discomfort is as simple as a thigh shaper.

          Slim Your Lower Abdomen

          Many hip and thigh shapers provide benefits all the way up to your waistline. Unlike some midsection shapers, these lower body shapers provide ultimate slimming effects for that pesky area in the lower abdomen.

          Correct Visible Panty Lines

          Never worry about bending over again, because with a seamless hip and thigh shaper, there’s no panty line to reveal.

          Enhance Your Rear

          You give attention to your bustline with nice bras; so why not do the same for your backside? Many hip and thigh shapers are designed to give the rear a firm and round lift. You’ll enjoy a sculpted look you might not have thought possible, perfect for those fitted pants and skirts.

            The New Rules for Party Dressing

            Blog-Design

            Dressing Your Best for Any Night Out

            It used to be that when you went out to party, you could only wear sexy apparel if you had the right body type. And unless you were a runway model, your selection of party wear might have been limited (unless you simply chose to wear an unflattering outfit!).

            These days, more people recognize that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and shapewear enhances all of them! No matter what your body type, the key to sporting a fashionable party outfit is setting the perfect foundation with the right shaper. Here are some rules you should follow every time you dress up.

            1. Choose the Right Shaper According to Your Outfit

            Some of your sexiest apparel naturally isn’t going to work with every type of shaper. For example, if you’re wearing a halter-top, a shaper with straps isn’t going to work. If you’re going low back or backless, you may run into to problems with a lot of midsection shapers with back coverage. But don’t give up on that cute dress yet! Many shaping garments are specifically designed for wearing under those fashionable types of apparel. For your more revealing outfits, try shapers that are backless, thong, plunge bra, or strapless.

            2. Try Different Materials

            Modern shapers utilize a variety of different materials, and not all function the same way. For maximum shaping effectiveness you might want to try a garment with high compression material and side boning for extra shaping and support through the midsection. If you would rather have more comfort and flexibility while you make your moves on the dance floor, a light compression cami or high-waisted panty might be better suited for your needs. If you’re planning on wearing a tight outfit, one quality you’ll always want to look for in the fabric is a “seamless” design, so nothing shows through.

            3. Find the Right Color

            No matter what type of shapewear you’re using, you’ll always want it to be invisible. You wouldn’t wear a black bra under a white t-shirt, so don’t sport a black cincher under a light-colored top. If you’re wearing a separate bra and panties, wear a shaper of the same color. You usually can’t go wrong with nude-colored undergarments if you’re trying to be discreet.

            4. Enhance Your Best Assets

            Know yourself and learn which of your features you can show off! Shapers aren’t just made for hiding your less flattering features; they’re made for enhancing what you’ve got. Match the shaper that features your curves with an outfit that emphasizes those curves. Use cleavage-boosting undergarments for low-cut tops, butt-lifting shapers under tight skirts and pants, and torso-lengthening midsection shapers for dresses that emphasize the waistline.

              8 Reasons To Own a Midsection Shaper

              08.04.2014-Blog-Redesign

              Every fashion-conscious woman knows that a midsection shaper is a key component to a tasteful wardrobe. But many don’t know that midsection shapers go way beyond just making you look slimmer around the midsection. Here are some of the benefits you’ll enjoy from a midsection shaper. Once you add this essential shapewear to your wardrobe collection, you may wonder why you ever went without one!

              Posture Correction

              Midsection shapers help your spine to stand straight and tall. Straight posture is essential to your short- and long-term back health! When standing with good posture, you’ll not only feel more energized, but you’ll look more poised. A midsection shaper may transform the way you look and feel with posture correction alone!

              Postpartum and Postsurgical Support

              Midsection compression can be an integral part of recovering from childbirth or abdominal surgery. It can reduce swelling and aid your abdomen in regaining its shape.

              Waistline Enhancement

              This may go without saying, but nothing works better than a midsection shaper in enhancing a feminine waistline and eliminating any problem spots like love handles and muffin top. You may drop a couple of sizes as well!

              Thermal Activity

              One of the primary benefits of compression technology in shapewear is that it stimulates thermal activity in your target areas. This in turn increases perspiration and can maximize the effectiveness of your workouts!

              Back Support

              Many modern women spend long hours every day in an office chair, on their feet, and/or carrying children around on their hips. While you might be tempted to just “tough it out” when you experience the back pain that naturally results from these activities, you can instantly ease some of the stress on your body with a midsection shaper.

              Reduction of Overeating

              When you have firm compression all the way around your midsection, your stomach isn’t going to expand the way it might otherwise when you eat a lot. That means that you will notice more easily when you are full, and you won’t want to overeat.

              Building Confidence

              You know how great it feels when you know you look good. When you’re not constantly worried about how your body looks, you can focus your attention on other things.

              The Perfect Foundation for Every Outfit

              Have you ever noticed that clothes in a department always look good on a mannequin but don’t fit quite the same way when you try them on? Shapewear turns your body into a smooth, almost mannequin-like shape, so you can look great in every outfit!

                    Getting in Shape & Staying in Shape

                    5 Ways Shapewear Helps Promote a Healthy Lifestyle

                    Shorts1

                     

                    You already know that quality shapewear can make you look great, as it discreetly shapes your figure to look like an hourglass. But did you know that certain shapers can contribute to an all-around healthier lifestyle?

                    In fact, shapewear encourages a healthy lifestyle and promotes weight loss in five key ways! If you’re trying to eat better and get more active – while ensuring you look great at the same time – be sure to include shapewear in your routine. Here’s why:

                    1. Shapewear discourages overeating

                    You’ll notice that when you’re wearing a garment that provides firm compression around your midsection, your stomach can’t expand as much. And that means you’ll eat less. This doesn’t mean that you won’t be hungry, but it does mean that you can have a stronger handle on compulsion eating, which is key for healthy weight loss. You’ll be more likely to simply eat when you’re hungry and stop eating when you’re full. This is an essential component to long-term weight loss and lifestyle change.

                    2. Shapewear motivates you

                    One of the great benefits of compression technology is that it produces noticeable results instantly! If you’re using a midsection shaper, you’ll quickly notice a reduction in inches. Nothing motivates to keep you going like real results.

                    3. Shapewear boosts your confidence

                    Even if you haven’t met your fitness goals yet, shapewear helps your clothes fit better, so that you look great no matter what your current size is. Feeling positive about your self-image is key to sticking with your lifestyle changes. With the ongoing confidence boost that shapewear provides, you’ll want to stay on track and see your goals to the end.

                    4. Shapewear paves the way to permanent change

                    If you’re serious about transforming your lifestyle habits, lasting change takes a lot of time and patience. Shapewear helps you enhance whatever progress you’ve made, whether you’ve got one more size you want to drop or four. You might want to be in a size 6 someday, but in the meantime you can still look fabulous in a size 8, size 14 or higher.

                    5. Shapewear helps you measure your progress

                    Speaking of sizes, did you know that shapewear helps you drop a size or two instantly? So go ahead and buy those smaller size clothes. You’ll enjoy fitting into them more naturally as you progress with your fitness plan. And if you’re wearing your shaper on a regular basis, your weight loss will be even more obvious to you. Those “Wow!” moments are super motivating!
