Does sexy automatically mean uncomfortable? A lot of the time we make the assumption that comfort must be sacrificed in the pursuit of image. This really shouldn’t be the case! In fact, we’d argue the opposite. That it’s when you feel comfortable that you look most sexy. We’re not talking about cosy onesie comfort here, but the comfort that comes from confidence. This kind of confidence in your appearance is something that shapewear provides wonderfully. So which pieces are the best shapewear to look and feel comfortable but sexy at the same time?
For Every Day
You just can’t beat a good pair of control briefs for every day shaping confidence. From high rise to low leg, this most versatile piece of shapewear can control more or less of your shape depending on your mood. They’re great under jeans, dresses, separates and one pieces. They smooth your tummy and hips while lifting your bum. Great stuff for feeling your best self every day! Once you find your perfect style, invest in multiple colours so that you always have the right shade on hand.
For a Night Out
Remember the days of dinner, drinks and dancing? When we can go back to having nights out (it’s in touching distance!) then a bodysuit is the shapewear ideal. Anchored from the shoulders right down to the hips, this garment is not budging, no matter how exuberant your dancing! Confident sexiness, after all, comes from the knowledge that your shape is supported and secure. Don’t forget about crotch fastenings for loo stops!
For Summer Days
Long summer days aren’t far away, and with them come floatier clothes. Summer outfits of linen and cotton have a tendency to show up every part of your shape, whether you want to or not! So go for a control slip under summer dresses to create a flawless line on which your floaty layer can sit. With gentle compression from your bust through to your thighs, you’ll feel summer sexiness exude!
For an Occasion
We all want to feel special when we attend an occasion. Shaping shorts are a real go-to piece of shapewear for a great line that works under formal dresses and sharp trouser suits alike. Go for high rise to shape your waist, tummy, bum and thighs. You’ll then avoid any disruption to your silhouette, and feel great at the same time. Occasionwear styles tend to bring out our inner sexiness, and having confidence in your shape will make you feel even more so!
For a Date
If there’s any time that you want to feel sexy it’s on a date, surely! But it can feel like a minefield… If you’re feeling uncomfortable, then this will impact on how you come across, so keep it real. You may not intend for things to progress as far as revealing any underwear, but what if…? Step forward the shaping cami. This piece of shapewear not only smooths your line from bust to bum, but also looks stunning in its own right. It’s anchored from your shoulders so is secure and comfortable. Go for a bit of embroidery to give your look an elegant sexiness – even if it’s just you who knows about it!
Remember that your comfort is not just about the piece of shapewear that you choose, but the size of garment too. Don’t make the mistake of assuming that sizing down will achieve a better effect. This will just make you feel uncomfortable and is likely to create lumps and bumps in your silhouette. When you stick to your dress size, you’ll not only feel more comfortable but you’ll have the confidence that comes with a smooth shape!
We want all our customers to feel confident and sexy and believe that this comes from feeling comfortable in your shapewear. Working at its best, shapewear should feel like a second skin, one that does not crush you but supports and lifts you. This is why our top tip is to always put your comfort first.
