  • What Makes Butt-Lifting Jeans Better — Hourglass Angel

    How butt-lifting jeans work
    What's the difference between butt-lifting jeans and regular jeans?

    You've probably heard the buzz about butt-lifting denim, but perhaps you're wondering about what the big deal is. How are they different from regular jeans? Can they make your butt look that much fuller and rounder?

    The answer is yes!

    Whether you have an already curvy bottom or you need some shaping helping, butt-lifting jeans make a huge difference, especially when compared to heavy, straight denim. Don't fall victim to "mom jeans" or worn-out denim; you can look hot for any event in this miraculous denim innovation.

    Still need convincing? Here's why butt-lifting denim is better:

    Innovative seaming

    Most traditional jeans have a flat seam above the rear. But butt-lifting jeans use a heart-shaped seam across the back to emphasize a round bubble look. So your butt can look fuller without any effort on your part. This seaming actually lifts and sculpts your bottom, making it look firmer, fuller and perkier.

    Small, angled pockets

    This is a simple detail that goes a long way. When you have smaller pockets sitting on the fullest part, the natural curves of your butt are going to look bigger, naturally. And when they're angled slightly inward, they create an illusion of fullness. The pockets on regular jeans can actually contribute to your bottom looking flat or saggy – who needs that?

    Stretch cotton denim

    For a truly sexy look, your jeans should cling to your rear. It doesn't work well with heavy denim, nor is it very comfortable. Stretch denim hugs your butt and emphasizes your curves, while allowing more free movement.

    Flashy detailing

    Tasteful studs, strategically placed stitching and other embellishments help draw attention to the most flattering places on the upper part of your butt. These accents make the jeans chic and on-trend, but they also help to flatter your fanny.

    Strategic fading

    Fading on the rear will draw attention to your curves in all the right places.

    Once you try butt-lifting denim, the difference is obvious, especially compared with jeans that are worn out, sagging and simply not designed to flatter your backside. For the latest in butt-lifting innovation, we recommend that you check out Amia's new line of lift-and-sculpt jeans. You're going to love your new butt!

  • 6 Types of Shapewear Designed to Target Problem Areas

    Choose the right shaper for your body type.

    Choose the Right Shaper for Your Trouble Spots

    Everyone has a different body type and different trouble spots based on their genetics. You might have an enviable waistline but wider hips, or you've got great legs but you carry your weight around your middle.

    That's why we have so many options in shapewear! Everyone is unique; therefore everyone should choose shapewear based on the problem areas they want to address. Here are six types of shapers designed to target common issues.

    1. All-Over Shaping

    Sometimes one garment is all you need for a flattering result from top to bottom. Bodysuits are designed to provide smoothing so you can look flawless under your sexiest clothes. They also provide slimming and shaping for the midsection, hips, butt and thighs.

    1. Butt-Lifting

    Most of us could use a little help when it comes to getting that perfectly round rear, which is why we carry a wide selection of shapers design to lift and sculpt. You can choose from shapers that enhance your natural curves or those that add padding. Many rear enhancing shapers also slim the waistline and hips while providing lift in the back.

    1. Waist-Slimming

    There are hundreds of options to help you attain that flat tummy and hourglass shape. For dramatic results or to start a waist training regimen, try a cincher or corset; for flattering everyday results without pinching or binding try a high waist panty shaper or shaping cami. If you want to work on your waistline while working out, try a workout band or high-waisted shaping leggings.

    1. Bust-Enhancing

    Whether you need extra support and shaping every day or you need something extra special for a formal event, there are a variety of bras and shapers that can shape, lift and support your breasts based on your needs. For low-cut, backless and strapless dresses you will want a special bra, bustier or adhesive solution. For everyday support you'll want a great bra as well as a shaper like a vest-style cincher that provides extra lift and support while slimming your midsection, for a more pronounced feminine shape.

    1. Thigh-Slimming

    Slim, smooth and sexy thighs are an option for everyone with the right thigh slimming. Many bodysuits extend to the thighs as part of the whole shaping package. You can also choose garments that focus more on your thighs, while also providing smoothing for your hips and waist. To look your best during your workouts, choose from one of our many thigh-slimming leggings, shorts and capris.

    1. Skin-Smoothing

    You can be in great shape and still have dimpled skin; for someone women it's just unlucky genetics. These shapers are designed to cover up, smooth or reduce the visibility of skin imperfections for a smoother butt, thighs and other areas when combined with exercise and a healthy diet.

    The Secret to Successful Waist Training

    You don't have to be a star to look like one. You can use a waist-training garment at the gym to complement your workouts, or wear one all the time for visually dramatic waist-slimming under any outfit. The Workout Band Waist Trainer by Ann Chery is one of our best sellers for the gym. For anytime waist training try the Ultimate ShapeBand Waist Cincher By Squeem 26PW.

    There are several benefits to using a waist trainer during your workouts. It helps you maintain good form and prevents from putting strain on your back while targeting your midsection. It also helps you increase perspiration and body temperature during exercise to make the most of your time at the gym.

    If you're looking beyond the immediate slimming effects, the key is to use your waist trainer in conjunction with fat-burning, muscle-building exercises and a clean, nutrient-dense diet. If you're not already working out regularly and you want to start waist training, get accustomed to doing some high-intensity cardio exercises first.

    For you ladies looking for a more traditional, everyday waist trainer, one of our customers' all time favorites is the Black Cashmere Underbust Corset. The Classic Cincher Waist Trainer By Amia A102 is an alternative to the traditional corset-style trainer and provides additional support through the back and shoulders.

  • Spring Clean Your Lingerie Drawer

    Spring clean your lingerie drawer.

    Out with the old, in with the new.

    Cleaning out your closet is a given this time of year, but don’t forget another often-overlooked area: your lingerie drawer. Here are a few rules to help decide which items to keep and which to purge (and if it’s on the border, err on the side of purging). Unlike your closet though, panties don’t get donated—they get tossed. Only recycle bras and lingerie that doesn’t involve nether-region coverage.

    Tips for Bras

    Toss anything that has lots its shape or elasticity. This includes worn straps, stretched-out bands, misshapen cups or exposed underwires (ouch!). Another category worthy of tossing? Ill-fitting bras. If it’s new, sexy and beautiful, it’s still time to let it go if it doesn’t fit correctly (but these are great candidates for recycling). You need bras that support, lift and flatter your bust. Also, if you have a larger bust and you’re experiencing neck, back or shoulder pain, your bra might be the source. Lastly, you should never have red marks on your shoulders or strap dig-in—another sign you’re wearing the wrong size or style.

    Now, the fun part! Time to replace everything you threw out. Try this strapless bra for a superior stay-put fit:

    Seamless Molded Cup 5 Way Convertible Bra by QT

    Tips for Panties

    This is an easy one: If your underwear sags or the elastic in the waistband is shot, it’s time to say adios. Another thing to look for: any sign of holes, fading or stains. And why not replace your standard panties with shaping pieces for adding body-defining benefits? A few we love:

    Simply Sleek Boyleg Shapewear 2-Pack by Cass Luxury

    Tips for Nylons

    Toss anything that doesn’t have a supportive waistband. And of course, any pairs with tears, snags, runs or pilling. New nylons and tights go a long way in sprucing up your look. The opposite is also true: an old pair of tights can sabotage a great ensemble. Replace your old nylons with ones that have shaping benefits and fun lace details:

  • The Dos and Don'ts of Waist Training

    Dos and Donts of Waist Training Dos and Donts of Waist Training

    How To Start Waist Training Safely and Effectively to Shrink Your Waistline

    You've probably heard of the waist training trend by now; gorgeous celebrities like Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian proudly swear by it. Jessica Alba revealed she used a waist-training corset for 3 months after pregnancy to trim off her baby weight. Kim Kardashian admitted she's "obsessed" with waist training and showed off her own shaper on Instagram.

    But does it really work? Is it safe? Before beginning any waist-training regimen, it's important to first gain an understanding what waist training is, what results to expect, and how to wear the garments properly.

    Waist training can be beneficial to many people. You can reference the hundreds of reviews on our most popular waist trainer, the Cincher by Amia. The key to the best results is to do it consistently. Results will vary depending on your body as well as your dedication to the practice. Note that changes you see in your waistline, which can be dramatic, won't be permanent if you stop wearing your waist trainer. However, if you use a waist trainer to complement a healthy diet and exercise, you may see more lasting results.

    As far as safety is concerned, the science behind modern waist training is similar to sauna suits, which athletes use to sweat off extra weight. The latex in cinchers boosts thermal activity and increases perspiration. Like any fitness regimen, the main safety concern is to stay hydrated and listen to your body's cues.

    Follow these tips in order to safely enjoy the benefits of a waist training regimen!

    Waist Training Dos

    Do start out slowly and work your way up. You might feel very restricted at first, so wear your waist trainer for a few hours at a time every day.

    Do add more time wearing your waist trainer as you start to feel more comfortable. Ultimately you'll want to be wearing it at least eight hours a day.

    Do be dedicated. If you want the most impressive results, commit to waist training daily for a few months.

    Do use a garment that fits! Use our sizing chart to determine what size you need for the best results.

    Do workout your core muscles if you want the best results. Some waist trainers are even designed for exercising in so you can maximize your workout's effectiveness.

    Do eat nutritious food in small portions. With the help of your waist trainer, you'll become fuller faster and with less.

    Do listen to your body. If you're feeling uncomfortable, take your waist trainer off.

    Do stay hydrated.

    Waist Training Don'ts

    Don't continue wearing your waist trainer if you experience any numbness.

    Don't continue wearing your waist trainer if you have sharpness of breath.

    Don't continue wearing your waist trainer if you experience sharp stomach pains.

    Don't continue wearing your waist trainer if you feel any pinching.

    Are you ready to try out what everyone is raving about? Choose from our wide selection of waist trainers to find your waistline's new best friend.
