Shapewear is like that steadfast friend- you can call on them anytime and they always make you feel better. Sometimes we all need a little support, and a good selection of shapewear can give you the lift you need. Best&Less can provide you with all the options you need so you can choose the right piece of shapewear. Shop online and get ready to feel supported!
Does shapewear really work?
Well yes- but sometimes no. Let us explain. Shapewear is fantastic, so long as it fits well. The temptation is to size down, to smooth and lift everything as much as possible. But this creates the problems that have possibly given shapewear a bad reputation in the past. The dreaded ‘roll down’, and some serious levels of discomfort.
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 out there, shapewear will not make you lose weight. Sorry.
What type of shapewear do I need?
Shapewear can be bought to target your specific problem area, 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 shaping briefs, but you might decide to go for a seamfree shortie instead, to give some shape and lift to your butt too. Then there’s the option of a shaping seamfree long leg short, which completes the trifecta of support options by smoothing and shaping your thigh area in addition to your belly and butt.
Shapewear can either replace your regular women’s underwear or compliment it. For example, you can replace your regular undies with a pair of shaping briefs. Or, depending on your choice of outfit, you might like to wear underwear from your regular lingerie sets and opt for a bodysuit or slip style of shapewear. 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 some bodysuits and slips in your shapewear stash as the clever designs will have you brimming 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 more about what you’re trying to achieve by using the shapewear. Choosing the best piece for the specific area you’re hoping to target is key. And ensuring that 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 a few also being available in white. If you’re wearing a tight dress, a slip is probably your best choice. It provides a seamless, continuously smooth finish with no risk of cutting in or spilling over. For something to smooth your tummy under a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans, for example, a bodysuit or a tummy control brief is possibly your best bet. Best&Less stocks their own brand of shapewear, but also the Nancy Ganz range, which is somewhat of an institution in the shapewear realm!
How to prevent shapewear from rolling down
Preventing your shapewear from rolling down is really the key to shapewear success! The first consideration is to ensure you’re buying the correct size. Some women try to downsize to achieve more compression and overall slimming- but it doesn’t work that way! If your shapewear fits well, you won’t experience any cutting in and rolldown won’t be a problem. Shapewear such as bodysuits and high waist briefs or shorts come with a nifty rubber grip on the upper edge, designed to help your shapewear stay in place. So 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.
