Does the S word leave you feeling apprehensive? Summer… what did you think we meant? Whilst a great opportunity for us to jet off to a beautiful sandy beach in the Mediterranean, sip on a Mojito, enjoy a delicious BBQ in the garden or attend lots of events such as weddings and garden parties, summer can also mean hot weather. This naturally means everyone is wearing the bare necessities.
If the thought of donning shapewear in humid weather brings you out in a sweat, then don’t stress. At Elle Courbee we have some great suggestions for you, which will accentuate your best features, show off those gorgeous curves and leave you feeling like the beautiful, smart and confident woman that we know you are.
You may have already tried control briefs, perhaps you’ve already worn a corset, but you may be slightly unsure when it comes to girdles and other forms of shapewear, so here’s a list of some of our favourite pieces and an explanation of the key areas they’re great for targeting and streamlining:
Unrestricted support – panty girdles
Unlike corsets, girdles can provide the support you need without leaving you feeling restricted, as they don’t have any boning in them and are simply made of material that offers high compression. Our girdles also come in a wide range of styles, such as cycling shorts and control briefs, meaning you can target, smooth and lift your tummy and bottom.
Whilst we offer a wide range of girdles, we particularly love the feminine panty girdle from Naturana as it provides reinforced support and beautiful lace edging.
Transform your shape – waist trainers
When it comes to shape transformation, waist trainers can definitely help you achieve that hourglass figure. This is a fairly hot topic within the shapewear community, thanks to the popularity of waist trainers and cinchers among Hollywood A-listers such as Kim Kardashian and Kyli Jenner. For more information, check out our post Waist Training: top tips for killer curves.
Specifically designed to be worn during a workout, waist trainers are purported to work via thermogenesis, literally helping melt the fat away. In order to ensure you achieve maximum results, make sure you wear the correct size and don’t wear one 24/7 – guidelines advise a maximum of 8 hours a day.
If you’re new to waist training, then our Bodycorset tummy control shaping brief is great for helping you target that tummy bulge and smooth over dreaded lumps and bumps.
Voluptuous curves – corsets
Just like waist trainers, corsets can also hone your curves into the perfect silhouette, all the while also helping support your posture. As popular as outerwear as underwear, corsets have seen a massive rise in popularity thanks once again to A-list endorsement, most recently Kim Kardashian and her eye-wateringly tight corseted dress that she donned for the 2019 Met Gala.
Our Shirley of Hollywood satin corset offers multi-boning at the front and a lace-up back for added flex and comfort. The satin white design also features a beautiful sweetheart bust line for a sensual look and is available with a matching G-string.
Unrivalled support – corselettes
Designed for today’s plus size women, corselettes provide the ultimate coverage, incorporating the shape enhancement of a corset with the support of a bra. Our Smooth silhouette panty corselette is non-wired and made of light, breathable fabric and can be slipped on underneath any outfit when you are seeking a smooth silhouette. Thanks to the three section hook up and three position hook and eye you can also enjoy ultimate comfort.
