A Smooth & Sexy YOU – The power of shapewear!
By JuliAnn Stitick, founder of Wardrobe Rx, helping women to find their Transformational Style.
Your company holiday party, class reunion or sister’s wedding is just a few days away. You’re making a list. Checking it twice.
Ooooops!! You may be missing one VERY important element to looking your very best this holiday season. The TRUE foundation to a smooth and sleek look. Body Shapers!
I can hear some of you.
“Body shapers make me feel confined.”
“I’m uncomfortable in them.”
The reason I know you may be saying this is that MANY of my clients say the same thing. The truth is, they may have tried a body shaper once, had a bad experience and never tried again. I can say with complete confidence… give them a try again!! They’ve come a long way!
Not all body shapers are created equal. There are two in particular I’d like to highlight. SPANX has the most extensive line. The perfect fit and solution for any trouble area. My trouble spots are my belly and my bootie so I go for the Slimmer & Shine Mid-Thigh Bodysuit.
It slims and smoothes AND I don’t have to go through the whole evening thinking “Suck it in, girl!” SPANX has a foundational solution for any body type. Peruse their website SPANX.com to find your perfect solution. Amazon affiliate link provided below for your convenience.
For the more budget conscious try Soma’s Vanishing Edge Shapewear. Slims. Shapes. Stays put. Lightweight targeted control. I have both and while Soma’s shapewear is best for light control, I pull out SPANX when I need medium, super or super duper control!!
Now on to my practical side…. body shapers are a bit of an investment, but well worth the price. I suggest choosing the flesh color as it will work with everything. Much more versatile. If you go with black, you’ll never be able to wear it with a light colored outfit. On another practical note, choose a shaper that has a slick fabric. That way your clothing will glide on you. You may also want to think about choosing based on the double cotton gusset feature, for when nature calls. Convenience, you know?!!
Here’s to a sleek and sexy look for all of your special occasions!!
