When shapewear was designed, it was designed to provide the right compression to different areas, like tights, hips, and also waist, and also to enhance your looks. In general, most women actually used their shapewear under their outfits, concealing them.
But the reality is, you don’t really always have to wear your high compression shapewear like that. Now, your shapewear can be a main piece of clothing and you can actually look fabulous while wearing it too.
Remember to always have in mind that your body shaper won’t give you a new totally different body shape but it will definitively smooth your natural curves giving you a clean and nice silhouette.
There are a few ways that you can actually style your shapewear and we want to show them to you.
The first one is tight shapewear. For example, waist trainer shorts. This type of shapewear will make your thighs look way more toned. Another great idea to wear is a high waist tight shapewear, as this will sculpt your waist and tummy area as well as the thighs.
Even though these shapers are often worn beneath your pants, skirts, or dresses, they can be worn as outwear too. A great way to do so is with high heels and cropped top, and for example, an oversized blazer. Or another great idea is to pair it with boxy t-shirts or jackets and cool sneakers too.
Then we have the bikini shaper briefs. This one might not be for everyone, but this type of shaper can be paired with almost anything. From trousers and shorts to even dresses and skirts. You can pair this one with a button-down shirt or with a crop top and add a statement belt over that great shirt. You can also pair it with your favorite flats and a shirt dress.
These bikini shapers can also be worn under sheer dresses and with a bralette or tube top and even add an open cardigan or even a jacket over them.
Also, we will show you how to style tummy tucker panties. These, also known as tummy shapers, were designed to control what we can call flaps, around the tummy area. Ideally, these are worn under high-rise skirts or pants with cute tops. A new option to wear them would be to opt for high-waisted panty shapewear, that not only will take care and contour your butt and tummy.
But yes, they can also be worn as outwear, believe it or not. These can be paired with pantyhose a t-shirt or a bralette top and cute thigh-high boots… you can also add a cute jacket if you are looking for a chicer and hotter look.
And last but not least, this is how a full-body suit can be styled. In comparison with the other body shaper, for example, a specialized tummy shapewear will focus its control in the tummy area, but if you want to wear a fitted dress, you’ll need control in other body areas too.
In this case, you’ll need a full-body suit, which was specifically designed to be worn with that type of dress and to offer overall smoother control and will accentuate the natural curves.
And thankfully, this type of shapewear has been increasingly being used as outwear in the past year. You now can go out wearing it without having to hide it. You can perfectly pair it as a top with any pants or jeans or even with shorts or a button-up denim skirt. This can be paired with almost everything, even leather pants, and jackets.
Remember that it is always important that you should pick your shapewear according to the areas you want to focus on.
