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.

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

What Katie Did Glamour Corselette

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

PicMonkey CollageMarie Claire

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 Corset Revival: How celebrities are wearing the trend

The corset renaissance is here and – believe us or not – it’s happening in a totally wearable way.

Originally worn as an undergarment in Victorian times, the corset trend is taking a modern turn of late, as seen in the street style of the stars.

It’s being reworked in a number of ways: over baggy t-shirts a la Kylie Jenner, mixed with knits like Kendall Jenner, or dressed up for a night out like Hailey Baldwin.

Let these celebrity looks inspire you to unearth your corset and have your very own Marie Antoinette moment…

Emily Ratajkowski

Emily Ratajkowski wore her floral corset solo, matched with some brown trousers as she attended an event with Adidas. We love the addition of the Carolina Santo Domingo basket bag.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner wore her corset with a super cropped polo neck top and wide legged trousers. This is a supermodel look if we ever saw one.

Hailey Baldwin

And the corset doesn’t have to be dressy – proved here in another Hailey Baldwin look. The model wears hers with an off-the-shoulder knit underneath.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall wore a loosely tied corset over a matching dress while in New York. She wore the look with white boots and an adorable mini bag. Top styling points here.

The advantages of slimming down with waist training corsets

Corset training or waist training is the means of cinching in the waist over a period of time with the aid of a corset. It is a widely known and a tight undergarment worn to reduce the midsection and bring you the hourglass elegant figure of a woman. Derived from the ancient Latin and French word, a corset has long been a desire for women. Available across different sizes and colors, the clothing has again become the newest in the fashion sector. Corsets can help to balance the body, reduce the chances of injury, correct past injuries, adjust body morphology and more; it is a quite controversial way of lowering the size of your waist since it has been connected with some health issues. Thus listed below are some advantages of waist training corset.

A smaller waist and hourglass figure

The hour glass physique is what a lot of women are after, thus the recognition of waist training. This way of training has been preferred to controlling the size of your waist by many sizes. Good cinchers are known to work with your body to give you a small and normal looking figure.

Good posture and back support

A cincher or corset has metallic bones which make it nearly impossible to slouch; giving you excellent posture each time you wear one. Back support really helps to provide healthy posture which is caused by the clinching and binding impact of the training. It also helps to heal and get rid of any back aches.

Increased sweating

Using a cincher during routines help to facilitate a better rate of sweating that helps in weight reduction and toning up abdominal muscle and back muscles because of its closed nature.

Tightening skin

The skin in the mid-section and back can be loose as many people pack in weight in these parts. Tightening the skin in these parts can help provide a well-toned and smooth appearance. The waist workout will ensure you look more energetic and youthful.

Corsets work as a weight reduction help

Corsets work as a gastric band and will not allow much increase of the stomach, therefore helping to regulate appetite and help reduce food portions. Using a corset will also help to notice yourself as a small person, planting the seed of faith in mind that weight-loss is attainable, and acting as a solid motivation to enhance nutrition and fitness routine.

Corsets are known to assist in preventing the weakening of joints encountered by people who have connective tissue problems. By using corsets and enhancing their good posture, they are less likely to experience dislocation of intersections and other bodily altering injuries.

Most of the benefits of using corsets for slimming down are on the health aspect and it is best to see a qualified health professional or your personal doctor concerning these health benefits. Corset weight training is a good innovation of mankind and with the perfect guidance; it will give you many benefits that will change your whole life in a favorable way.

Steel Boned Corset vs Latex/Spandex Waist Cincher

We get asked all the time “What’s the difference between a waist cincher and a corset?”. The quick answer is “LOTS!” I am going to try an offer a little more detail today as to the differences of these products, and also how you might want them both to work together towards your goals.

Waist cinchers, which is a term used to define those shaping garments that target the abdomen specifically. That is where the similarity to corsets ends. A waist cincher will usually shave an inch or two from your waistline while you are wearing it and is designed to provide a slimming affect underneath your clothes. Most cinchers are made from a combination of nylon and latex or spandex, some with plastic boning. If you carry your weight in your tummy, they can help give you more of a waistline for sure-but not the hourglass curves a steel boned corset will give you.

Steel boned corsets are designed to not only give you AMAZING curves, but will instantly take three, four even six-seven (or more) inches off instantly (depending on how much “fluff” you have). Corsets also will help you to re-shape your body overtime (like braces for your teeth or tapers to stretch earlobe piercings-I personally find corsets to be less invasive than either of those options-but you get the idea). Proper dedication and patience to waist training will give you a smaller waist even without your corset on, and a little corset maintenance will keep it that way.

Many women find they want to waist train almost around the clock, but sleeping in a steel boned corset is not for everyone-and you certainly shouldn’t work out in one! That is where you might benefit from both products. Cinchers are more comfortable to sleep in and work out in, but still provide some support and shaping. Corsets are bulkier as well, and if you are looking to for some slimming help underneath a fitted top or dress, the cincher is easier to hide (as it is meant for that). As I said at the start of this blog, you will not achieve the same results with a cincher, but it will shave a little (and bring in your waist if you carry excess weight in your tummy).

So many products with so many different uses..it can make your head spin! I hope this clears up at least this one FAQ for many of you. We would love to hear your experiences and advice on cinchers and corsets below in the comments.
