Does shapewear actually work?
Yes! But sometimes no. Let us explain. Shapewear is fantastic, so long as it is the correct size and fits you well. Resist the temptation to size down and squeeze in to try and lift and suck everything, because it doesn’t work this way. This only creates problems like the infamous rolling down and digging in. It is only going to create discomfort and have the opposite effect of what you want it to do.
Shapewear is intended to support and flatten the typical ‘problem’ areas, namely your thighs, butt and belly. It’s a temporary fix so you can wear figure-hugging outfits with confidence. Contrary to some of the myths, shapewear isn’t going to make you drop a clothing size or lose weight. We know, damn it. Rock what you’ve got with confidence, but if you’re after a little boost check out our stunning range of shapewear today!
What type of shapewear do I need?
Shapewear can be bought to target specific areas of your body, so that’s probably the best starting point when trying to determine what type of shapewear you need. But there really are so many options within that. You can target your tummy and waist with a pair of firm control shapewear briefs, or you might decide to go for a seam-free shortie instead, to give some shape and lift to your butt too. Then there’s the option of shapewear leggings, which completes the trifecta of support options by smooth and shaping your thigh area in addition to your belly and butt.
Shapewear can either replace your regular underwear or complement it. For example, you can replace your regular undies with a pair of shaping briefs. Or, depending on your outfit, you might like to wear underwear from your regular lingerie sets and opt for a bodysuit or slip. These styles are designed to be worn in conjunction with your choice of bra and undies, as they sit under the bust. It’s worth having bodysuits and slips in your shapewear stash as the clever designs will have you beaming with confidence and looking your best when you step out in your favourite bodycon outfits!
What is the best shapewear?
Although there are many different brands of shapewear, it’s really about what you’re trying to achieve by using the shapewear. Choosing the best piece of the specific area you’re hoping to target is key, and ensuring there is no cutting in or overspill is very important too. Colour can be a factor, depending on your outfit. Most shapewear comes in a black or nude option, with some white options available. If you’re wearing a tight dress, a slip is probably your best choice. It provides a seamless, smooth finish with no risk of digging in or spilling over. For something to smooth your tummy under a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans, a bodysuit or a tummy control briefs is your best bet. Best&Less stocks their own brand of shapewear, but also the Nancy Ganz range, which includes beautiful shapewear pieces! Our shapewear is designed to wear under dresses, skirts, pants, shorts - you name it! Wear with ease knowing Best&Less has you covered.
How do I stop shapewear from rolling down?
Preventing your shapewear from rolling down is the key to comfortable, flattering and gorgeous shapewear. The main consideration is to ensure you’re buying the correct size. Some people try to downsize to achieve a more compressed and slimmer look - but it really doesn’t work that way! If your shapewear fits well, you won’t experience any digging or rolling. Shapewear like bodysuits, briefs & shorts is usually designed with a rubber grip on the upper edge, which helps your shapewear stay in place. So as long as you’re in the right size, this grippy strip will work wonders in preventing your shapewear from rolling down your body. Shapewear that is the correct size and fit will be very comfortable. When you’re on the lookout for some new shapewear, look no further than the collection at Best&Less.
