Pssst. I’m letting you in on a little secret. It’s a secret that shouldn’t really be a secret at all. But here it is.
My drawers have all sorts of shapewear in them.
Some of you just rolled your eyes. I know I’m not a big person. At barely 5’2″ and weighing about the same as I did in high school, it may seem crazy that I would consider wearing it. But I do. And you should, too.
A shapewear dress top of my list of necessities. Barely thicker than a slip, this type of shapewear smooths everything out. Love handles, baby pooch, yesterday’s donuts…it just creates a nice, smooth shape, while adding to an hourglass figure. It also helps to smooth any panty lines you may have if your dress is very form fitting.
I also wear them with dresses that cinches in at the waist. I don’t like when I feel self-conscious about my stomach and the slip shapewear is just an easy fix.
The side detail on this ASSETS Red Hot Label by Spanks is so pretty. It’s a light rose color and makes me feel super girly!
The tank shapewear is another favorite of mine. If you’re wearing a white tank underneath a shirt, why not make it serve dual purpose? I wear mine a ton if I’m going to be wearing any type of fitted top. This one is by Maidenform and is called fat-free dressing tank. Hehe. It also comes in nude and black!
Last, but absolutely not least, is the shapewear shorts. This was the last type of shapewear I ever wore and once I tried them, I wondered why I had waited so long! These are a high waisted boy short by Naomi & Nicole from Kohl’s.
