Getting The Most Out of a Shapewear Wardrobe
Once you discover how shapewear can transform the way you look, you'll probably be eager to get more. But if you're on a tight budget or have limited storage, you may be wondering what you really need.
While we don't think you can ever have too much shapewear (there are pieces for every occasion, every day of the week), it's helpful to know the basics.
It all depends on your individual lifestyle, but here are some pieces we think every woman should have for a flawless look every day.
- Alternating waist trainers
Do you love waist training? If you want to wear a cincher or corset daily, you need at least two to alternate. This allows your waist trainers to rest and regain their shape after you've worn them all day, which is critical to maintaining their slimming power.
- Shaping slip
For professional attire as well as special occasions, a slip can be everything you need to create a slim and smooth foundation. There are a variety of styles including full body slips and slip skirts – use a specific dress or your entire formal wardrobe to determine which slips you need and how many.
For a quick and easy full body makeover, try a bodysuit. They flatter every body type, create a smooth foundation for a variety of outfits, and are easily hidden. Choose from styles including butt-lifting, thong back and thigh shaping.
- Performance workout attire
Say goodbye to baggy gym clothes and say hello to compression activewear that will have you maximize your workouts and look sexy while you do them. We think everyone needs at least a pair or two of compression leggings, as well as quality sports bras and tanks.
- Shaping panties
Whether you're dressing for work or casual events, shaping panties are a simple way to transform your appearance every day by flattening your belly and creating a smooth midsection all around. You may want to ditch regular panties altogether.
- Shaping apparel
Sometimes you might not want to bother with shapewear at all—and you don't have to with shaping apparel. Try butt-lifting jeans, camisoles and leggings and for effortless perfection.
