Gone are the days of uncomfortable and unsightly form-fitting clothes you’d be forgiven for hiding in the back of your underwear drawer, ever since the likes of Kim Kardashian entered the space with brand names. Her breakthrough brand Skims, shapewear and sculptural lingerie got a serious makeover.
Whether it’s bodysuits that flatter your figure under a low-cut dress or high-waisted briefs for extra support on those occasions when you feel your best is at the top of the agenda, there’s a limitless amount. Products from high-end to high-end appear virtually undetectable beneath your favorites’ suits. The best results come from a solid foundation, and here we take our trusted shapewear as the ultimate foundation. Please add where from! And FYI: shapewear shouldn’t cause pain or disfigure our bodies in a way that encourages us to believe there’s something about us that needs to change. We’re here for style, comfort, confidence and support!
For all-round support and confidence in every look, a seamless bodysuit is your final layer. If you’ve ever struggled with high-waisted tights and a separate bra that creates a layer of skin in the middle, a bodysuit will help you eliminate this problem with confidence and make you wonder why. Why do you overcomplicate your background with more than one item? Whether you go for short or long sleeves, corsered or more relaxed, the bodysuit is the perfect choice for tight evening dresses below and full length silhouettes, and can even be found with options. Backless to match the shape of any outfit.
Shapewear Briefs and Thongs
VPL? We don’t know her. Today’s best pants – whether low, medium or high – are sculpted yet breathable, provide core control and fit to define the figure without cutting off circulation blood – always ideal! Usually made of super soft, seamless material, shapewear can come in briefs, shorts, or brazilian styles and is designed to hug your belly and contour your body area. Look no further than brands like Skims, Spanx, Heist Studios and Conturve.
A pair of one-piece shorts may be all you need for a polished and sculpted look, with their stretchy compression fabric smoothing over skin for a supportive feel that can be the difference between the feeling at the top or bottom of the reliability scale. As usual Skims has a wide range of shorts in various lengths and skin tones, even offering some designs with a cropped side leg making them perfect for high slit dress occasions. Also, keep an eye out for another celebrity debut coming this year: Lizzo’s Yitty! We have a feeling that this sizing-inclusive franchise could be game-changing when it launches in April, but be quick as it’s likely to sell out ASAP!
Backless and sticky bra
So your bottom half is fine to go, but sometimes an intricate outfit with low back or front details needs all the help it can get when it comes to nailing your base. Friend. Say hello to the best in bras with sticky materials, strapless designs and sheer finishes to ensure your outfit has the least of worries when it comes to your big day. Bigger debate? White or pink.
