4 Tips to Choose the Best Shapewear for a Bodycon Dress

The best shape wear to rock your bodycon dress

There’s nothing worse than feeling frustrated when you can’t find anything to wear or you don’t feel confident with your outfit choices especially if what you really want to wear, is that stunning bodycon dress you have parked and ready to go in the closet. Bodycon dresses, those that cling to every curve, are just about the ultimate party dress. 

After five months of the COVID quarantine and settling for outdoor get-togethers, you’re ready for some real socializing (safely physical distanced, of course!) on the patio of your favourite restaurant or nightspot, with your favourite bodycon dress perhaps?

Bodycon dresses, those that cling to every curve, are just about the ultimate party dress. Worn well, they are sexy, give off an air of confidence and are always in fashion. But many women avoid bodycon dresses because they don’t feel they have the right body size or proportions to carry off the look.

If you’ve never gotten up enough courage to show up in a bodycon, even though you’d love to, figure-enhancing shapewear can give you the spark of confidence you need.

As the name implies, shapewear, like the Mass & Slim Waist Shaper, improves your shape as soon as you put it on.

How to Choose the Best Shapewear for All Body Types

You don’t have to be slim to be the hit of the party in a bodycon dress. Well-proportioned curves can be just as appealing. And shapewear adds attractive shape and balance to every body type. From the moment you put it on, shapewear instantly adds flattering shape to every body type. You just need to know which shapewear is best for your body.

1. The Hourglass Figure

If you’re curvy all over, it can be a real plus. Except, as we said, if you let things go a little too far. Suddenly ‘curvaceous’ can turn into, well, ‘meh’. If you need shape and support through your entire torso, waist hips and thighs, try a combination of the Sankom Posture-Correcting Shapewear Bra and Posture Correcting Shapewear Shorts. In addition to support for your bust, the bra contours the transition from your upper body into your waist. The high-waisted shapewear shorts take over from there to keep everything in great shape; from your waist, through your buttocks and into your upper thighs.

2. The Straight Figure

Everyone always tells you how slim you are. That’s great, but sometimes you wish you weren’t. If you would like to add a little more variety to your dimensions, we recommend the Mass & Slim Waist Shaper.  It adds definition from below your bust to your hips, making both that much more noticeable.

3. The Apple Figure

Also known as the inverted triangle body shape, you’re well proportioned, but wider at the shoulders than you are at the hips. This is yet another body type that will benefit from the waist-shaping benefits of the Mass & Slim Waist Shaper.

4. Pear Figure

It's sort of the opposite of the apple-shaped body where your hips are distinctly wider than your upper body. The answer is to bring in your lower proportions with Secret-Slim Compression Shorts, which will firm up your hips and thighs.

More Benefits to Shapewear

Helping you look great in your bodycon dress isn’t the only benefit of wearing shapewear.

  • Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite - Shapewear exerts a gentle massaging effect on the areas of the body it covers while you wear it. That stimulates circulation and can help minimize the appearance of your cellulite.
  • All-Day Comfort -  Made with innovative fabrics, shapewear is remarkably comfortable to wear all day, considering everything it can do for your shape, cellulite, and your mood!

So get that bodycon fired up, you’re going out in style now!
