Shapewear 101: The Definitive Shapewear Guide

Remember that moment in Bridget Jones when Renee Zellweger had to make the decision between the scary, huge, pants and the sexy black ones? Those scary pants helped Bridget to bag Daniel Cleaver , but nonetheless, she did look amazing in that gold dress.

Gossard Retrolution Slip

If you’ve got a big event coming up and you want a little something extra to help you look and feel your best, there’s no harm in using high-tech fabrics and clothing design to give yourself a helping hand and a super sleek silhouette.

Whilst shapewear isn’t a requirement for dressing well, if you’re feeling bloated or not as firm as you’d like, a good bodysuit or pair of control pants can help boost your confidence and make you feel better while wearing your favourite dress. Here’s a quick overview of some various shapewear styles that might make an appearance in your closet:

Bodysuits

Prima Donna Twist 'Cache Cache' Body

Skinnygirl By Bethenny Frankel Lace Shaping Bodysuit

Yummie Tummie Kayla Teddie

For a quick lift, bodies and body shapers are the way forward. They may look a little like a swimsuit, but trust me when I say they’re very, very different! Bodies help to smooth out your stomach, lift your bosom, make your bum look perky and create a smooth silhouette – all in one! They are perfect for wearing under almost any outfit from trousers and tops, to shorts and tanks, to dresses and skirts. Many bodies have an integrated underwire bra to offer support, but if you prefer to wear your own, there are cupless styles available that often have matching separates, like the one above from PrimaDonna. There are so many gorgeous designs out there, you may find yourself wearing some bodysuits as outerwear!

Body Control Dresses

DMondaine Marilyn Contouring Slip

Scandale Sirene Shaping Skirt

Wolford Tulle Forming Dress

A good body control dress (also known as a shaping slip) hugs your curves, making them look smooth and toned. If you want shapely thighs, a defined waist and a lifted bust, a control dress under your party dress is the way to go. If possible, get fitted for your shaping dress professionally, and be realistic about what it can do for you. A good shapewear dress, like the ones shown above, will give you a sleek, smooth silhouette, but it won’t make you a full dress size smaller. Trying to squeeze into a shaping dress that’s too small will have the opposite effect, in fact, giving you bulges in places you shouldn’t have them.

Corselettes or Body Briefers

Kiss Me Deadly Vargas Dress

Rago Shapewear Lacette Corselette

Corselettes, or garter dresses, are an essential piece of shapewear, and I believe they have a place in most every wardrobe. Corselettes help create a smooth silhouette when worn under dresses and skirts. Most corselettes come with stocking clips to help keep them in place, and many styles are pretty enough to wear on their own in the bedroom or as part of a super-sultry boudoir photo shoot.

Shaping Camisoles

Body Hush Glamour Sensual Slimming Camisole

The Body Wrap Cinch and Lift Camisole

Camisoles help smooth your upper body and flatten your tummy. They’re more comfortable to wear than a full body control dress and are a good choice if you’re wearing a dress that’s fitted at the top and flared at the bottom. They also work well for pairing with a show-stopping top and a pair of trousers, jeans, or a skirt.

Waist Cinchers

Chantelle Opera Waist Cincher

Agent Provocateur Bridgit Waspie

Hips and Curves Waist Cincher with Garter Straps

Nipped-in waists and hourglass figures are still highly desirable for many women. If you want to add a little extra definition to your waist, a waist cincher or “waspie” will be your new best friend. A waist cincher is a bit like a wide belt that’s worn around the waist to helps smooth out the tummy and support your back whilst helping create a more defined hourglass shape. They are available in a wide range of styles that include front fastening, hook-and-eye closures as well as pull-on styles, and they range from more plain, everyday wear to lacy pieces (such as Chantelle’s), which you’ll have a hard time keeping under your clothes!

Longline Bras and Bustiers

Gossard Retrolution Longline Bra

Playful Promises Lucy Lace Longline Bra

Dottie's Delights Devils Mask Longline Bra

Sometimes a bit of bra bulge can disrupt the lines of an otherwise great outfit. Longline bras, like the beautiful Dottie’s Delights style pictured above, offer support for the chest and smooth your back so you don’t have a visible bra line. Longline bras are structured to extend a few inches lower than the band of normal underwire bras and can also do double duty as a shaping bustier. Longline bras not only help to shape your silhouette, they can also be more comfortable to wear than bras with thinner bands because the wider band area offers more support across a larger space.

Shaping Shorts and Leggings

Va Bien Smooth Couture High Waist Tights

Marks & Spencer Firm Control Lace Shorts

Spanx Shaping Bodysuit

If you want a smooth line under a slim-fitting skirt or some skinny jeans, shaping shorts and mid-thigh shapers are a good option. They help lift your bum and smooth out your thighs at the same time. You can even get shaping pants that help keep your skin cool, so you don’t get all hot and bothered on the dance floor. Because who doesn’t want to look confident and comfortable in their party clothes?

Control Briefs

Panache Envy High Waist Shaping Brief

Triumph Perfect Sensation Maxi Panty

DKNY Light Control Lovely Lace Shaping Brief

Whether you’re slipping on your favourite pair of jeans or getting ready to hit the town with your friends, you want to look and feel your best all day (or night!) long. Control briefs and boy shorts are perfect for lifting and rounding your bum to create a shapely derriere. Control briefs offer everything from light to firm support, and are perfect for those venturing into shapewear for the first time as they are much less intimidating than their full body counterparts. Many control briefs also offer light stomach support and even a bit of thigh slimming, making them an excellent all-around shaping garment suitable for most anything.

Arm Shapers

Cosabella Betsy Half Sleeve Pushup Bra

Leonisa Arm Compression Vest with Posture Corrector

Mary Portas Black Floral Lace Armery

Shapewear isn’t just designed to slim tums and lift bums; there are even pieces to help out with your arms. If you’re wearing a tight top or a dress with long sleeves, you may want to try a back and arm shaper. These can even help with poor posture, a common complaint amongst office workers and those who spend a lot of time at a desk. Arm shapers that stretch across the back help to pull your shoulders into a more natural position can help uncurl your body f you feel hunched over after a long day at work. What’s not to love?

The History Of Lingerie And The Evolution Of “Sexy”

Fashion’s closest answer to the puzzle of sensuality is simple: lingerie. A myriad of shape, texture and color, lingerie manipulates our individual concepts of sexy and the clothes that represent those tastes. It suggest, it flirts, but it never reveals all. And that’s the core of it’s essence: mystery. Complete exposure could never suffice, as it signifies an e-vite of constant availability. No, lingerie has always been seen as a curious subject, carefully choosing what to hide and what to bare.

Throughout history lingerie has served as women’s answer to questions of individual sensuality and suggestion, and so from the many years of bustiers, bras and the babes that wore them, we’re exposing it all.

Not to any surprise, the 1800s’ version of sexy was’t any version at all. Any suggestion of intimacy was of a covert matter, an almost shameful secret only divulged behind closed doors and only shared between man and wife. The suppression of sexuality then quite literally translated into sartorial matters: the corset. Nearly every aspect of this garment was engineered to pull, push and manipulate the female body, from the drawstrings that cinched the waist together to the whalebone that pushed the breasts forward. Such constraints had a definite affect, causing women to suffer from organ deformation, crushed ribs and even miscarriage. But the era of lingerie’s suppression would quickly come to an end as fashion’s newest invention found its limelight.

Bloomers and Bras

With Mary Phelps Jacobs’ invention of the bra in 1910, women were finally getting the choice and freedom that lingerie was meant to offer. Society’s corset requirement began to fade with WWI shortages and lingerie companies were in need of new solutions for their customers, one of these being the bra. Because of the 20s’ sleek and skimpy silhouette, women were going to need underwear of the same cloth, thus also introducing the slip. Much contrasting from the suppressive nature of earlier centuries, the slip granted a newfound liberation and simplicity. Granted, this image was quite androgynous and promoted a sort of boyish figure not usually associated with an image of sex, but by using lingerie to celebrate the female body, “sexy” was exactly the term for it. As styles changed in the 30s and 40s, underwear followed suit and women bought their lingerie in separates: bras and bloomers. These options again were a step in a positive direction, but still had a certain veneer of secrecy. Something would need to break this wall in order for a more available version of “sexy” to be found.

The Curves of Rebellion

But with the 1950s, lingerie finally developed its overt display and societal acceptance. The image of sex could finally become tangible, and this was in part due to the rise of pin-up girls. Pin-up girls were pictures of often scantily-clad models printed on posters for the walls of America. On these models were the lingerie trends of the decade, advertising everything from seamed stockings and girdles to bustiers and corselets. In total, these trends encapsulated the newest image of sex: curves. With the 60s and 70s continued an era of sexual liberation and lingerie styles again evolved, but almost in a digressional manner. The 60s version of underwear was no underwear, as seen in the decade’s infamous bra burning and invention of the No-Bra. The 70s had a return to lingerie, but in a sleeker sense with trim nightgowns and loose fabrics.

Cher And Body Suits: A Love Affair

80s lingerie could not be explained without Cher, who was famous for debuting this little number in concert. Lingerie had officially gone back to the one-piece or teddies that had been forgotten for quite some time. Along with the body suit, popular styles were thongs, g-strings and any piece with a high-cut leg. Much opposed to the 80s’ version of sex, the 90s found its version in an androgynous display of very little clothing. The most commonly known example was in Calvin Klein’s controversial ads of the decade. Even though he was technically selling clothing, his models often wore no clothing at all, challenging ideas of nudity and the connotations of sex that go with them. In addition he created the unisex Calvin Klein waistband to prove that sexuality didn’t always have to be determined by gender. While his ideas and ads were widely known, they were also heavily censored and even faced a few child pornography charges. Still, his ideas of sex represented a new version that defied past standards and limitations.

The New Sexy

Today lingerie is obviously more accessible than ever in a variety of forms, but more importantly it has contributed a modern version of sexy completely unique from past eras. This new version is not about what’s covered up or not, but about the woman underneath it all. A woman of confidence. A woman of strength. A woman who encapsulates whatever sort of sexy she wants.

After all of these years, we’re happy that this is the sort of woman that lingerie has become.

The Development of Corset – The evolution of the corset culture

The corset is a pioneer of the modern bra, but its historical origins can be said to be a historic beach-goers. In ancient Greek and Roman times, people respect for nature, there is a type of clothing that could support the breast of a woman. Their bra and panty set is just like the popular bikinis now.

In the next middle age, the influence of Christianity in Europe is becoming increasingly widespread. During this period, there is no keen pursuit of cultural development in the clothing, nothing special, men’s and women’s clothing styles inherited Roman style, there is no significant difference, and are based on the cylindrical shape of the robe, long-sleeved style. Aristocratic women also wear a “face clothing”, it is not only a veil, and also have to wrap the head, or even cover the entire shoulder, similar to the nuns headscarves.
It is worth mentioning that the Christianity culture had a major impact on the fashion during that time. Christianity was widely spread during the confrontation of the Roman Empire, it strongly oppose the drawbacks of the Roman Empire, at that time, simple is considered to be beautiful. Not many people will deliberately dressed up. Whether they are ordinary civilians or from the royal family, they basically dressed the same. At that time, women went topless and pose the “S-shape” to attract attention.
However, from 1096 to 1291, the Crusaders up to 200 years in Europe conquered the war. This war changed the European history. First, the dream on the establishment of the World Church did not realise. Also due to lack of organization of the Crusaders, the church prestige dropped significantly. In addition, the Crusaders opened the door to the Oriental trade, leading to the emergence of a large number of freedmen to accelerate the development of Western Europe, handicrafts and commerce, which became an important force of the commercial development of civilization in the Renaissance and the middle class.
The subsequent development of the Renaissance and the development of middle-class business culture played a role. At that time, the Europeans elsewhere, back to the novel textiles, spices and other goods, has greatly stimulated the desire of aristocratic luxury, the use of luxury has become a fashion. Accompanied by literacy, poetry, emotional revival, no doubt induced the feminist consciousness In a great historical background, people began to question the teaching and the pursuit of sensory stimulation. Ever since, the era of the corsets began!

Devil history debut

In the Middle Ages, the Christian culture occupies a dominant position, they never think that the female body is a beautiful symbol of female curves. Who would have thought that the devil debut actually is so dramatic – it has to do with a group of mice!
In the mid-14th century, plague is very popular, and claimed the lives of one third of the people of Europe. To the latter half of century, there is a rapid decline in the population, the spread of the plague makes the European panic. The Government must take urgent measures to encourage people to increase the population, which had an excuse for the women to attract the men in public. Since then, people began to lost faith in God, forsaking the faith and began the life of endless indulgence. There was history described: “When some women put on a wig in public, wearing low-cut shirt, could have a candle standing on the cleavage, who can doubt that human nature has been devoid to the edge of hell? ” In this wave, the corset mounted the stage of history.

This trend originated in Spain, initially it is sewn from fabrics with tie up design to tightened the waist area. In the process of development, there has been an iconic figure of the era -the French King Henry II, Princess of Germany.

Note: The above history of corsets is a shared article. The truth of this story remains to be determined.
