How to choose the right Shapewear for your body.

How to Choose the Right Shapewear for Your Body body type 2

Shapewear is the perfect choice for creating smooth lines under your clothes. Shapewear can be worn as an everyday foundation, but is most commonly used under special occasion outfits. Choosing the right style and size is crucial for getting the most out of your shapewear piece.

All About Fit

Shapewear fits tightly, so while it can be tempting to go down a size to get more control, you are generally better off ordering your typical panty size for brief or full body shapewear. For cami shapers, order your typical shirt size. Going smaller will often result in rolling or cutting, which defeats the goal of a smooth look (and can be really uncomfortable). If you go up a size, you won’t be getting the most out of your garment in terms of control.

All About Style

Choosing the right style depends completely on the garment, what you want to wear over it, and what area you want to shape. There are three main shapewear silhouettes and they each have a unique purpose.

Full Body Shapers

Designed to give a smooth look from your bra to below your panty line, full body shapers are a great choice for strapped, form-fitting dresses. You will notice that all of the full body shapers at The Fitting Closet are styles to be worn with your own bra. We believe that the perfect fitting bra will do just as much to flatter your figure as the right shaper. Trying to fit a shaper and bra in one piece will rarely give you an ideal fit for the best shape.

Brief Shapers

The most popular style of shaper is the brief. Waisted shapers control the tummy and bottom, but can include upper leg and upper torso shaping, depending on the style. These garments can be worn under any outfit and offer excellent shaping and versatility. Panty cut styles, that do not come down on the leg, can be cooler and less likely to show under shorter hemlines, but can also show panty lines. To smooth the area from your waist, across the rear, and down to the thigh, the best choice is a legged shaper, such as the Your Contour High Waist Long Leg Slimmer or Your Contour High Waist Thigh Slimmer

The height of the waist also varies by style. The smoothest look will come from a style that is high-waisted, where the waist meets the base of your bra. High-waisted shapers are perfect for smoothing backs and creating a smooth line across your midsection. They work particularly well with dresses, but are also great for reducing “muffin top” over jeans or slacks.

Cami Shapers

Cami shapers are perfect when you want to smooth your back or waist without wearing a shaper on your lower half. A cami shaper will smooth your back to create a seamless look across the back of your bra band and smooth and hold the lower back and tummy.

Arm Shapewear

Designed to smooth flabby or saggy arms. Worn with any of your favorite undergarments, this shapewear is dedicated to toning your arms while smoothing bulges from the upper arms to elbow. it also recommend for post-surgical procedures. At Your Contour, you can find a large variety of styles and colors. It is ideal to wear with your favorite blazers and shirts.
