Shapewear for dummies...Your guide to the latest trends in Shapewear

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 (against her better judgement, may I add) 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 designed to give yourself a helping hand and a super sleek silhouette. Although shapewear has been around for centuries, it has recently made it's way into pop culture. Celebrities are practically bragging about their use of shapewear and Kim Kardashian has basically started wearing her shapwear on the outside of her clothes. In fact the recent Yeezy Season 4 Show at the New York Fashion Week featured models wearing Body Shapers, talk about fashion forward.

While 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 favorite dress. Here’s a quick overview of some various shapewear styles that might make an appearance in your closet:

Shapewear comes in a variety of intensities and we have them all, From a light seamless control all the way to Maximum control and everything in between.

The Bodysuit Body Shaper (Firm Control)

Bodysuit Bodyshaper

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!

They are perfect for wearing under almost any outfit from trousers and tops, to shorts and tanks, to dresses and skirts.
