Wedding season 2022 has been a long time coming. Some couples have been putting off their big day since the pandemic first shut down the wedding industry two years ago. So for many wedding guests, this spring and summer will be the first time they have seen extended social circles for a long time. Naturally, you’ll want to look your best so we look at the best shapewear for wedding season 2022.
This season’s necklines are as impractical as they are lovely! It’s all shoestring straps and halter necks. Both are a great look for spring and summer, but how do you choose a bra that will shape, lift and stay in place day and night?
All in one
A reliable bastion of shapewear, the all in one support of a corset will smooth your silhouette and lift your breasts all without impacting your strap line. A great way to cover all your bases!
If you prefer to choose a specific bra to go with your straps, consider how it will integrate with the rest of tour foundation. If you’re wearing high waisted control briefs, for example, attach the waist band to the band of your bra to keep your line uninterrupted.
Light and flirty, chiffon and tulle fabrics are eternally popular for occasion dresses. The only downside is that these looks can highlight any bits that you’d rather disguise. So shapewear is important to build a smooth silhouette.
Try a shaping slip to accurately underline the shape of a dress. This piece of shapewear is anchored from your shoulders and takes compression all the way down your thighs for a super slinky silhouette.
If you prefer to stop compression at the hip, a body suit is ideal. This gives you more freedom around your legs, whilst still maintaining secure support around your torso.
More tailored looks have just as much need of a structured silhouette. Not only will the outfit hang better on smooth lines, but with support to your posture a tailored look simply carries more confidence.
To make sure that tailored trousers slip perfectly over your legs, try a pair of shaping shorts as a foundation. This piece of shapewear provides a continuation of line that is perfect for structured looks.
Waist cinching shapewear has the added benefit of providing support to your lower back. So whether you struggle with heavy breasts or general back pain, high waisted briefs or girdles can help. By supporting your back, you’ll carry that tailored jacket with confidence.
From low backed dresses to elegant slitted skirts, wedding evening wear can prove a challenge when it comes to choosing your shapewear. The last thing you want to do is have it on show, so what’s the best solution?
Keep it small
Basic control briefs are wonderful because they provide support and lift to those core areas without the risk of being seen!
For many of us, it’s the waist area that demands most of our attention. So keep your bra choice flexible and thighs free of compression with a supportive girdle.
The most important thing for the long awaited wedding day of a loved one is to enjoy celebrating their happiness. So make comfort your priority with shapewear that’s well fitted, gentle and easy to go to the loo in!
Cut the crotch
One way to make a wedding day’s worth of toilet trips less faff is to avoid briefs in your compression. This may feel bizarre bearing in mind that briefs cover most shapewear! However, a shaping cami will anchor compression from your shoulders and carry it to the hip to give a naturally smooth waistline.
Keep it light
The most important factor for comfortable shapewear is that whatever garment you choose, make your compression light. This will give you a grounding support whilst making sure that you stay comfortable all day long!
