Waist Cinchers

Hourglass figures are highly desirable for many women. If you want to add a little extra definition to your waist, a waist cincher or Waist trainer should be your new best friend. A waist cincher is a bit like a wide belt that’s worn around the waist to helps smooth out the tummy and support your back whilst helping create a more defined hourglass shape. They are available in a wide range of styles.

Shaping Shorts and Leggings

If you want a smooth line under a slim-fitting skirt or some skinny jeans, shaping shorts and mid-thigh shapers are a good option. They help lift your bum and smooth out your thighs at the same time. You can even get shaping pants that help keep your skin cool, so you don’t get all hot and bothered on the dance floor. Because who doesn’t want to look confident and comfortable in their party clothes?

Control Briefs

Whether you’re slipping on your favourite pair of jeans or getting ready to hit the town with your friends, you want to look and feel your best all day (or night!) long. Control briefs and boy shorts are perfect for lifting and rounding your bum to create a shapely derriere. Control briefs offer everything from light to firm support, and are perfect for those venturing into shapewear for the first time as they are much less intimidating than their full body counterparts. Many control briefs also offer light stomach support and even a bit of thigh slimming, making them an excellent all-around shaping garment suitable for most anything.

Arm Shapers

Shapewear isn’t just designed to slim tums and lift bums; there are even pieces to help out with your arms. If you’re wearing a tight top or a dress with long sleeves, you may want to try a back and arm shaper. These can even help with poor posture, a common complaint amongst office workers and those who spend a lot of time at a desk. Arm shapers that stretch across the back help to pull your shoulders into a more natural position can help uncurl your body if you feel hunched over after a long day at work. What’s not to love?
