Your Contour Shapewear summer fashion blog

Not too keen on showing some bulges?

That’s okay. Here are some fashion tips to make you look awesome this summer – curves and all!

1. Comfort First

When looking for a summer outfit, remember one simple rule – BE COMFORTABLE! Let’s start with the fabric. Avoid using synthetic fabrics like polyester. They will only make you do one thing – sweat! The fabric will cling to your curves big time when you perspire. Uncomfortable? You bet! If you want to stay fresh while the temperature sizzles, then go for cotton! Outfits made of cotton will make you feel ‘lighter’ and for sure, you won’t sweat that much.

2. Printed and Colorful

Still hiding your curves with the all-black outfit? Well, it’s time for a change! Try using bright color fabrics or those with printed patterns. You can start slow by just using a bright-colored or printed blouse with your dark-colored denim pants or slacks. Using dark colors will balance the bright colors you have chosen. Moreover, if you want your contour to stand out, use some shapewear products.

3. Go for Shorts

What? Shorts for curvy women? Yes, by all means. Bermuda, Capri, cargo, cuffed, flat front and cutoff shorts are just a few styles to choose from. Make sure you’re comfortable with your choice and to match it with a nice shirt or blouse. Having a great pair of legs is a plus too!

4. Get Loose

Tight tank tops may look like a summer outfit and it may show off your curves, but it can also make you sweat and experience some underarm chafing. Ouch! Why not choose a breezy halter top instead? They won’t cling to your body once the heat goes up. Halter tops is not just comfortable, it can also be SO sexy!

5. Water Adventure Standout

Planning to go for a swim this summer? Go for it! Don’t let your shape become the problem. Remember, there are swimsuits that can accentuate those curves or bulges. Don’t settle for loose t-shirts and baggy shorts. They are NOT swimwear outfits! Go for High-Waisted swimsuit, Halter-Tankini top, Asymmetrical Tankini or One-Piece Halter Dress. Here is a simple trick – get mix-and-match swimsuits! Using the same ‘old’ swimsuit the entire summer is a bummer. So, shop for a few pairs and start mixing!

6. Add Pizzazz

Let’s face it, sometimes it’s a bit uncomfortable to walk around using just a swimsuit. Thank goodness, they ‘invented’ cover-ups! The best thing about cover ups are the different styles and colors. Here are some choices – Empire Tunic, Chiffon Caftan, Crossback Tunic, Tassel Poncho and Bandeau Caftan. These cover ups will add mystery to your swimsuit!

Some curvy women tend to hate summer not because of the heat, but because they cannot wear ‘sexy’ outfits. They hide their shape under oversize, dull and boring sack-like clothing the entire season. Yes, you have some ‘flaws’, but so what? You CAN still make some heads turn by choosing the right clothes that will flatter your shape. Let the words of plus-size model Denise Bidot be your mantra – “Be you and rock this world!”

Your Contour Shapewear and Body shapers

WOMEN SHOULD NEVER STOP LOOKING AWESOME!

Truth be told, there are women who tend to shy away from fashion after reaching a certain age. Aside from that, they also mention kids, work and weight gain as reasons for avoiding ‘dressing up’.
I understand these women because I was once like them. I simply use the most comfortable clothes I have – sweatshirt and denim – every day. Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion, but I don’t wear them.

Well, things can change, right?

When I started Your Contour Company, I decided to do two things. First, I made sure to update myself about fashion. I am very interested in clothes for curvy women, older women and new mommies. Second, I started wearing trendy clothes that would flatter my contour (thank goodness for shapewear!) and my age. I had to show other older women – married or not – that looking great is not a bad idea!

So, here are some general fashion tips for older women.

1. Evolve! IN now, OUT next month.

Fashion is never stagnant. So, know the latest trend and see if it is your style. Remember, you must also be comfortable with whatever you are wearing. Pick wisely!

2. Less is more!

When it comes to wearing accessories, some older women tend to go overboard. They want to use all their jewelries at the same time! Use just a few items and let them stand out!

3. Be Confident!

Sometimes, the real reason an older woman shy away from fashion is because of her bulges and love handles. She covers them up by using black or oversize clothing. Well, shapewear products are the best solution. They give you contour you never dream of. So, buy clothes that are flattering, use a shapewear undergarment and just feel confident!
Avoid using kids, time, bulges and love handles and even age as excuses to look great! You know you deserve to look fantastic! Remember, Fashion IS and WILL ALWAYS BE for everyone – YOUNG and … YOUNGER!

Man spinning woman on beach

THIRTY YEARS and counting!

Today, staying with the same person for more than thirty years is an achievement! So, congratulations to the lovely couple – my best friend Klariz and her hubby Reden. Believe it or not, they still glow like teenagers! Well, I am a great friend so I interrogated them to spill it out! How do they keep their marriage exciting?
Top three answers:

1. Laugh!

According to Klariz, they don’t plan to attend the Oscars to receive an acting award any time soon, so they don’t need a ‘dramatic’ marriage. Yes, they do have problems, but they make sure to handle it properly! If they can laugh about it before solving it, the better! Life is too short. And besides, let’s leave great acting to Leonardo DiCaprio!

2. Date! Date! Date!

Dating your spouse should not stop after the wedding! Let’s face it; a lot of couples tend to forget about dating because of the kids or work. This should never happen! According to the lovely couple, kids will grow up and leave the house and companies will let go, but it’s the spouse who will keep the ‘ever after’ promise. The question is, “Does the spouse REALLY want to stay?” Let love sparkle! Date twice or thrice a week!

3. Unleash the Goddess!

Always look great is the last tip. When dating, they make sure they use their secret weapon against bulges and love handles. Undershirt Body Shaper for him and Firm-Control Slip shapewear for her! Well, actually they use their shapewear almost every day and anywhere. They feel sexier and more confident when using said undergarments.

Never let the marriage sizzle out! Work at it. Get to know your spouse more by dating often. Keep things light! Finally, get a shapewear and look super confident and sexy – not for your spouse, but for YOU!

pet fashion, Your Contour Shapewear

Wanted: Model

Requirement: Must be a … Chihuahua!

Huh, come again?! Well, if you are dealing with pet fashion that’s what you will need, right?
Now, don’t think it is just a pet show! A pet FASHION show is way different from pet shows. Pet shows flaunt the pets while pet fashion shows grandstand the clothes, accessories and hairstyles!
In fact, believe it or not, there are people who are so ‘into’ pet fashion shows that they even have a Pet Fashion Week! In 2011, New York hosted the first Pet Fashion Week called the “Last Bark”. Well-known designers like Alexander Wang showed off his unique style with his own designed dog outfits.

So, why ‘accessorize’ pets?

First, it’s fun! Not to mention cute when you see the owner of the pet sashaying down the runway with the same outfit!
Second, designers get paid really well. Imagine spending almost half a million dollars for hairstyles, outfits, jewelry and other accessories for a week of pet fashion! This happened two years ago in the 2014 New York Pet Fashion Week.
And, best of all, most pet fashion shows help raise funds for pet organizations. That is the best end goal! To help the less fortunate animals have a better life. Let the designers and other pet lovers accessorize their pets all they want! We don’t see any problem as long as the grooming process is safe for the pets and the events help raise funds for animal shelters and the like.
Some folks may say that dressing up pets with crazy outfits is … well, crazy! Be as it may, pet fashion is here to stay for a long time. So, when you see people “petcessorizing” their pink Chihuahua with a yellow pedicure, a rainbow hairdo and a lot of bling bling … well, just smile and enjoy the show!

Simple Ways to Empower Oneself by Your Contour Shapewear

FREEDOM TO BE ME!

This simple statement, I believe, is the main point of empowerment. According to dictionaries, ‘empower’ means “to give power or authority”.

But what kind of power are we talking about exactly? Well, it covers four things, the power to – CHOOSE; DECIDE; DREAM and BE INDEPENDENT.

Choose and Decide

Do you let people make decisions for you?

More often than not, letting people have the last say will produce a ’sad’ you! Take for instance the parents who choose the college course of their kids or the wives asking the ‘permission or approval’ of their husbands if they can work while caring for the kids. Choosing what to do is sometimes difficult, but it doesn’t mean you let people run your life.
When you are an empowered woman, you make the choices. You know what’s good and what’s bad for you, right? Use it as your guide. Sometimes your choice works and sometimes it’s a bust. Well, shake it off and remain proud that you decided on your own!
Some decisions can change your life forever too. Jeanne, a close friend of mine made a difficult decision lately. Was it a bad decision? Far from it! Jeanne decided to change career after serving a company for fifteen years! Normally, you stick with a company after so many years of service, right? That’s a big ‘yes’ if security and pension are your end goal. But, what if an opportunity knocks on your door and it is too good to pass? What then? All you need to do is to take a ‘leap of faith’ and go for it!

Dream and Become

Let me start this part of the article by showing some survey results:

• Women work harder! That’s the conclusion given by a research consultancy firm after observing 274 subjects (53 percent women; 47 percent men) in an experimental trial.
• In another study, it was found out that women do 52 percent of professional jobs.
• Still in another study, the income of women globally increased from $4 trillion to$9.8 trillion. By next year, they believe the income will jump to $15.6 trillion.
Without a doubt, women have gone a long way! We have women who aspire for great things and they grab every opportunity to make it come true. Let me name a few – Oprah, Beyonce, Sally Ride (firs woman astronaut) and Hillary Clinton (first American woman president?)! Anyone can become whatever they choose. They just need perseverance and patience. Furthermore, true empowered women never listen to the words “You can’t, you are JUST a woman”!

Be Independent

Let’s be honest here. Are you intimidated by some false advertising presented in the media? You know; the breathtaking figure that women should have and stuff like that? They make you feel your contour is not good enough! In fact, Style Editor Janet Sahm stated that, “Seventy five percent of young women feel worse about themselves after three minutes of reading a fashion magazine.”
Real empowered woman will take this media brainwashing technique with a grain of salt. So what if you have bulges or love handles? It’s okay because you know you have the freedom to do something about it – IF YOU SO CHOOSE! You can go on a diet or simply buy a shapewear to flatten those bulges! No need to compare and no need to feel guilty. Products like shapewear are available and you have the freedom to buy them if you want! The bottom line is, nobody should make you feel bad about yourself!
Remember, empowering yourself is the only way to discover what you are capable of. It is also the only path to enjoy the freedom of being YOU!

Your Contour Shapewear: The Sporty Side!

Hey, are you aiming for a ‘double take’ body? You know, people giving you a second glance!

We all know Spring is the season of new beginnings. So, why not start with the ‘great body’ process. Why?

Three things -beach, sun, summer! Coming soon, right?!!

You could start by dieting and exercising every day. Sounds boring? Here is a great idea – get into sports! Tennis, golf, badminton – name it and they will definitely help you hit the bull’s-eye.
But what if you are too conscious of your bulges? Well, you can try what a lot of people are doing – sucking in their tummy making it look flat! Of course, it’s a challenge to do it for hours!
So, be realistic and accept the fact that maybe you need to use a shapewear underneath your sports attire. Remember, shapewear are not really just for dates, parties or special events. You can use shapewear products anytime and anywhere!

So girls, before you try any kind of sport, get a shapewear like the Bodybriefer Thong Shapewear.

This product will not just make you look gorgeous in your gown or dress, BUT will also make you stand out in your sports attire. You will get firmer hips, midsection and a straighter back once you put it on. Relax and let shapewear do the compressing or the ‘sucking in’ while you enjoy the sport.

But wait, what about the guys?

Well, thanks to Your Contour’s Slimming Undershirt Body Shaper, guys won’t have to get conscious of their bulges too. The undershirt will do its ‘magic’ to the hip, stomach and chest. It will compress bulges and make the body look firmer. Guys will look fantastic while playing baseball, basketball or any other sport.
There you have it girls and boys! Aside from dieting and exercising, sports are a great way to lessen some pounds. And when you use Your Contour shapewear while enjoying the chosen sport, it will make you more confident! Who knows, that second glance may lead to a … first date?

Your Contour Postpartum Shapewear

POSTPARTUM SHAPEWEAR: Reclaiming your contour!

 

THE HARD PART IS OVER. You gave birth!

Well, that is true, but there is one more challenge to overcome. The bumps that go with postpartum!

Let me tell you about Willow, my college buddy. She got married last year and wanted to have a kid right away. Wish granted … twice! Yes, Willow gave birth to twins – a boy and a girl – two weeks ago! Willow absolutely adores her twins. She knows that kids would change her life forever. But she never expected that her body would change that much! What’s wrong? The lumps and bumps she ‘wears’ postpartum. Moreover, because of her belly fat, people thought she was still pregnant!

One day, Willow approached me and said, “I want my figure back!” You see, before giving birth Willow is the proud owner of a six-pack abs and a tiny waistline. All our friends, including myself, envied her contour! But now, she is a bit conscious because of her belly bump. She even revealed her plan to go under the knife just to get her figure back.

Fortunately, I gave her a better option. I introduced her to the Body Shaper Extra firm Postpartum Shapewear. I actually used this shapewear after I gave birth a few years back. It really works! The shapewear helped contour my waist and abdomen. It re-tightened my skin after the surgery. Moreover, it lifted my buttocks and enhanced my bust area. The shapewear was so comfortable that I wore it everywhere I go.

Today, Willow is a happy owner of a Body Shaper Extra firm Postpartum Shapewear. She wears them every day! Her confidence is back and vows to reclaim her figure the natural way. With a little help from shapewear, I am sure she can do it.

Without a doubt, shapewear products can help build or rebuild self-confidence. So, if you just gave birth and want to get your contour back postpartum, grab a shapewear today!

  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.

Your Contour’s line of body shapewear targets different areas of your body, so you can have the support and therefore increased self-confidence where you desire it the most. I created this company to produce a product that can custom fit anyone of any size and provide confidence to those who were recently pregnant, losing weight, or have undergone surgery.

Body ShapewearSummer is finally here along with the season’s latest trends, including loose tops, beachy sundresses and sporty capris. This is the time of year where everyone is showing off some skin.

Letting go of the layers brought on by the chill of winter may be difficult for some. It was so easy to conceal any extra pounds with layered clothing and shapewear to match, however it’s just as easy to maintain your winter body in the summer.

Body shapewear from Your Contour is able to give you the confidence you need to look your absolute best this season. We have provided you with the top summer shapewear styles to give you that beach body you’ve been dreaming of.

Waist Sculpting Shapewear

Waist sculpting shapewear is a perfect problem solver for women who see their stomach as a problem area. This type of shapewear has the capability of smoothening and tightening the appearance of the waist with its brief shape and built-in control panels in the front.

Full Body Control Shapewear

Full body shapewear has the capability of targeting multiple problem areas at once, including the stomach, the buttocks and the waist. This type of shapewear has a seamless appearance under clothes to the point where it seems invisible.

High Waist/Long Legged Shapewear

This type of shapewear is mainly for women who are looking to slim down their muffin tops or define their upper thighs. High waist/long legged shapewear offers a high level shaping technique that creates an hourglass figure through its strong elastic fabric.

Full Body Slip

A full body slip is the perfect accessory to any outfit combination involving a dress. It has the ability to smooth and sculpt any signs of lingerie while targeting your waist, hips, buttocks and thighs. Don’t worry; you will still be able to show off your natural curves!

I founded Your Contour in 2006 after experiencing a common frustration shared by many over the industrialized sizes of the shapers. We produce shapewear that can custom fit any body type and provide confidence to those who want to appear in peak shape without obsessive dieting or exercise. We pride ourselves on our unique products and the confidence they instill in our consumers. Contact us to order your shapewear today!
