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.

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.

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!
A couple of posts on our Facebook page from this week sparked an interesting discussion. A study recently made the rounds in the press showing that there were far more shapes of women than often thought. Notably (and hysterically), broccoli and butternut squash were added to the list. It’s worth mentioning that we have always known that women come in sizes and shapes a lot more complicated than apple and pear. It’s also worth noting that no matter what shape of woman you are now, you contain within you the potential for an hourglass… your own special hourglass.
We wanted to share an example of this idea of the unique hourglass. Check out this image of Nicki Minaj. Nicki is a natural pear shape. Her bust and waist are proportionally small compared to her hips and bottom: the classic beautiful pear. However, her shapewear inspired bodysuit (and, we suspect, cincher) enhance her figure, while following the lead of her natural body type. And this brings home a point that is crucial when talking about shapewear. Nicki isn’t changing who she is in this image. She is amplifying it. You needn’t completely erase your natural shape (whatever that is) to highlight your hourglass curves. Whatever your shape is, there is a body shaper that is perfect to find your beautiful curves and show them off.
And that’s just what we’re here to do!
Dresses are essential part of holiday attire. Today’s necklines vary from plunging to outright asymmetrical. From edgy to modern, fresh shapes in dresses are showing up in everything from street wear to formal wear. Unfortunately, many of us who wear our shapers everywhere think that shoulder-bearing and sheer styles are off-limits to us. You might be surprised to learn that whether you’re into asymmetry or sexy styles, shaping up under provocative shapes is a snap when you add a convertible bodysuit to your ensemble. Convertible bodysuits are a super option because of their often underbust design and convertible straps which can be criss-crossed or removed to accommodate a whole range of necklines in dresses .
Staying long, lean and warm in cool months can seem like a difficult task when layering up is our best defense again bitter cold. The solution? Slimming leggings do double duty, protecting you from the elements, while trimming the tummy, thigh and legs. And best of all, these essential accessories won’t add heft as they ad warmth. Wear them alone or as an additional layer under dresses and skirts. When the temperature drops you can count on slimming leggings to make sure stay warm while looking smokin hot.
With winter nearly upon us, skirts and dresses aren’t sometimes suited for cold weather. In these chilly months, pantsuits are a smarters look, whether you’re in the office or out painting the town red. And best of all, pantsuits provide us with the perfect opportunity to benefit from the all over slimming of a full bodysuit. These shapers give a lot of control and target most of the areas that women struggle with.
There’s no getting around it: it’s coat season. If the thought of wearing a heavy jacket makes you cringe, there’s one sure fire ways to insure that you look less like a bundle and more like a babe. Adding a waist cincher to your wardrobe is one of the easiest ways to create a slender silhouette when you’re wearing bulky outerwear. These maximum compression garments create a great shape no matter what you put over them. They also offer support for the back, creating an overall longer look. The effect you get with a cincher is dramatic, immediate and reliable. However, some cinchers also offer long-term weight loss benefits, making them especially handy when fighting back against seasonal weight gain.
