So it seems that with every years passing we are able to get away with less and less. Whether the daily pilates sessions just aren’t cutting the mustard anymore, or perhaps we just have a little more common sense than our teenage selves, either way sometimes you just need a little bit of help squeezing into that perfect outfit. These are my favorite shape wear pieces for common trouble areas.
Thighs and butt: Not only do you want the sliming contour effects expected with all good shape wear, but what if I told you that just by wearing Biopromise Slimming Shaper Bermuda $64.95, the far-infra-red emitting active crystals in each garment will work to improve the appearance of skin and shape smoothing out unsightly lumps and bumps. Just in time for summer!
Stomach:That cringe worthy scene in Bridget Jones’ Diary with the granny shapewear! Luckily now there are sexier options available to avoid the shame of thick beige bandages. My pick is the Allure High Waisted Brief from Nancy Ganz 79.95. Nancy Ganz shapewear was founded in the 90′s and revolutionized the way women dress, with there sleek sexy lines and supportive structure.
A bit of help all over: If there is no particular area giving you issues and you just need a bit of extra help sliding into that slinky party dress, go for a shaping camisole. I like the Slimplicity Convertible Full Slip from Spanx $80. This super level slimming slip firms the stomach, thighs, hips and rear for an all over smooth look. And best of all, the adjustable straps make it possible to wear the slip 4 different ways.
Budget: Don’t want to break the bank or your pants either? Head to the Target online store and browse through the Assets by Sarah Blakely collection, the affordable range from the creator of spanx. A huge selection at a reasonable price.
Lift your spirits, as well as your butt, and perk up for the new year!
