The Long and Short of It: Shapewear for Every Torso

01.20.2013_01

Every body is different and while we use shapewear to enhance our shapes and get extra support, there are some things that we cannot change. When the distance between your shoulders and your natural waist is shorter than average, you are short-waisted. The opposite is true for those with a long torso. Luckily there is perfect shapewear for your long or short torso so you can get what you need and get out the door looking great!

Women with long torsos have a hard time finding shapewear or other tops that reach down to the waist, making tucking in a shirt nearly impossible – and don’t even get started on low-rise jeans. This poses a problem when selecting a midsection shaper because many women seek to control the lower tummy, which is often left exposed in this situation. Most enhancing bodysuits don’t fit because they do not stretch enough vertically  and will end up being too tight in the gusset.

The Glamour Shaping Camisole by Bodyhush reaches down past the hips for full coverage. It is a long camisole perfect for those with a long torso, and it does not sacrifice form for function. This beautiful control top slims the tummy and waist while functioning as a sexy top. The Firm Control Waist Cincher by Flakisima is also a long shaper that whittles the waist while providing firm coverage throughout the entire torso.

Dealing with a short torso is like conducting a magic trick – success can be achieved via optical illusions. The torso can appear elongated by wearing smooth, one-piece shapewear that gives your chest a little lift. Shapewear that smooths out your midsection while supporting the chest emphasizes the waistline.

The Lilian High Back Underbust Body Shaper by Vedette provides a midsection makeover that also gives special attention to the hips and back. Its underbust design provides a light lift that opens up the torso. The one-piece body suit design camouflages it under your clothes as to avoid any creases or bunching at the waist, which in turn would have shorten the torso. The Demi Sexy Lace Waist Cincher with Garters by Vedette trims the midsection and lower abdomen with FlexiBoning. The shaper comes up only to the ribs, perfect for a short torso.

Whatever category your torso falls in to, shop Hourglass Angel to find the perfect shaper for your perfect shape.

Are you a cincher or a vest-er? Tips on the right midsection shaper for you

Design-1.13-1

TitleDesign-1.13.2013

HourGlass Angel sells a large variety of shapewear and so many options can make it all confusing. What is the difference between these products, and which is best for you? If you’re looking for a slimmer waist and tighter tummy with posture support, try a cincher or vest (especially if you’re a postpartum mommy looking for extra support for a changing body).

For women with long or short torsos, you should stick with a cincher. Although vests come with adjustable straps, most are unable to accommodate atypical torso sizes and can end up riding up and shifting. Cinchers are typically the more versatile choice. The Almighty Cincher by AMIA slims the tummy and waist while lifting the chest with its underbust design. Its FlexiBoning supports your back, improves posture, and elongates the torso. The Almighty Cincher by AMIA provides long-term results with customers reporting a one to four-inch waist reduction after wearing the shaper eight hours per day for 30 days.

Vests can also provide instant slimming while delivering long-term results. Shaping vests provide extra support via its straps and gives your bust an extra lift. In addition to smoothing out any back or underarm bulges created by a bra, vests can prevent rolling or sliding. Vests are also a wonderful tool in supporting a large and back for the ultimate relief during a long day. However, vests cannot be worn with strapless or thin-strapped tops like the cincher.

The Almighty Vest by AMIA uses PoweLatex and FlexiBoning to sculpt inches from your midsection by increasing thermal activity in your core. This also supports long-term results, as customers have reported dropping up to four inches from their waists after a month of wearing as instructed. The Almighty Vest has extra fabric at the armholes to prevent any spillage or bulge from the bra.

Midsection

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.

 new_03

Lower Abdomen

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.

Rear

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.

Thighs

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.

Legs

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.

Back

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.

Hips

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.

All Over

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.
