Shapewear Style Secrets Look #3


Elegance is the name of the game this season with dramatic shapes and designs. A sheer and lace top gives an old Hollywood feel while showing off the decolletage. A black jacket will balance this very feminine look while the peplum skirt slims the waist and camouflages wide hips. Be daring when putting together this outfit and go for winter white – the hottest color trend of the season.

The Mystique High-Waist Brief Shaper by Scandale is the perfect base for this glamorous ensemble as it defines the waist and slims the tummy and midsection without sacrificing grace and beauty. The high-waist brief has a satin feel and lace panels, but it is so much more than a pretty face. It features firm, targeted control panels, a v-shaped front that prevents unwanted rolling at the top, and flattering high-cut leg openings that create the illusion of longer legs. The hip control and trimmed waist mimic and enhance the effects of the peplum skirt and your inner Marilyn.

  • The Mystique High-Waist Brief Shaper slims the waist and hips and enhances the peplum design

  • Flattens the tummy for a sleek, flawless look that won’t draw attention away from the outfit

What’s A Faja?


The south of the border silhouette sensation is here! Fajas are one of the most exciting trends in shapewear. Even the New York Times has taken notice of this worldwide phenomenon. You may have heard this word, faja but if are not a native Spanish speaker, you may be wondering what a faja is? The word literally means belt or wrap in Spanish, but it refers several kinds of shapers that were popularized in Latin America.

Latin America has a long tradition of shapewear. While girdles and other shapers haven risen and fallen in popularity in the United States, south of the equator the love affair with shapewear has remained consistent. Generations of women have used these garments to create curves and show them off. And that’s just what the word faja refers to.

Most often faja shapers are a cincher style of garment, wrapping tightly around the waist to create a beautiful hourglass shape. One of our favorite faja creating companies, Leonisa makes several of these. The Thermal Reducing Vest in Latex and the Slimming Waist Cincher With Latex are both excellent options if you’d like to add a faja to your figuring fixing collection. And if you’re a future faja wearer with a latex allergy the Anti-Allergic Shaper Vest by CoCoon, is a great place to start your journey with this style of garment!

Gimme Five! Five Tips To Trimming With Shapewear


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.
