One size does not fit all when it comes to foundation wear. Each serves a specific purpose and can benefit some dress styles and body categories better than others. Here are four of our favorite shape wear pieces and how they are best used.
High Waist Brief | Now What’s that for Again – Slims and smooth’s tummy area. Slimming starts just below the bra line and is middle minimizing – This brief is the perfect foundation for a shift dress. Since a shift dress isn’t form fitting, there is no need for a longer length brief and the high waist allows for slimming the tummy and not inhibiting the shape of the garment.
Mid-thigh | Long Leg Brief – Firms and smooth’s the thighs and rear. A mid-thigh long leg brief is sheath dress approved! This brief will create a seamless silhouette without those despicable panty lines
Open Bust Shaper – Allows you to wear any neckline, or bra, gives support for fuller bust lines and tames the tummy area. This is perfect for halter dresses or dresses with a plunging neck line that require a spanx and a support bra.
Waist Cincher – Takes in and firms the waist. A waist cincher is perfect for giving a little more oomph to the hour glass figure in a wrap dress, or smoothing the tummy in an empire waist dress.
Honestly, it would behoove you to invest in two more of these under garments. Depending on the style of clothing you wear the wrong foundation wear can create unwanted bulge’s, panty lines, or become visible through your clothing, and nobody wants that.
