Flaunt Yourself Down the Red Carpet, like a Celebrity

Shapewear

 

Shapewear provides a holistic coverage to the body by suppressing and enhancing the necessary parts of the body to give you the perfect curves.

 

While you do not suffocate like they did in the Victorian era, you wouldn’t want to go without a shaper under your silky dress. With the technology advancement, the only way you would feel uncomfortable  is that you got the wrong size.

 

Choosing Your Shapewear

 

I know you could probably be intimidated by the selections of shapewear that seem endless but it actually is not that difficult to start off with.

 

To start off with, decide what you would want to wear on top of the shapewear.  This will determine the amount of control level you will need.

 

Light, medium or firm?

 

Going light will be suitable for an everyday use; it is not advisable to crush yourself every day. If you would like to hold your body in a certain figure you can consider the medium control because the firm control will mostly drive you one size down.

 

For comfort, it is important that you get the size right. Your girlfriend comes in sizes according to your bra and panty sizes. There are also the small, medium and large sizes that are according to your hip, waist and tummy measurements.

 

A good piece gives you an amazing shape and does not make you feel uncomfortable in a way you should not be feeling. All it does is give you your desired curves and not make you suffocate.

 

The price is also an issue. It could decide if you look just OK or if it can give you a stunning body figure. Some of the factors that come with the price include comfort and readjustments flexibility. However, it shouldn’t cost you a bomb to buy one.

 

The Right Fit

 

The greatest common mistake you can make is to go down one size so it gives them better results. You should just get one that fits just right and it will give you better results compared to the one with the smaller size. You wouldn’t want cuts into your skin and nerve compression.

 

If you want better results, try one with a higher control level instead.

 

Here’s what you can do. Look yourself into the mirror and decide which part of your body you would like to emphasize. It can help make your shopping very much easier.

 

Some things to look out For

 

Your right fit should smooth out lumps and bulges but not make them more prominent.

 

Look out for rolling edges. If it happens, you are probably wearing a size that is a little too big for yourself.

 

Try moving around. The crotch area should fit just right. If it is not touching your skin, it will probably cause friction with your thigh areas when you move around. If it is too high up, you will feel uncomfortable all day.

 

Who Best to wear but You!

 

It is not true that control lingerie is only for those who want to achieve the hourglass figure. It can be worn by anyone and everyone regardless of age and skin color. If you are a mama of a newborn, you can now get back to your pre-pregnancy body.

 

You can also opt for those targeting specifically your lower body. Most celebrities wear them to the red carpet.

 

The Benefit?

 

Smooth body contour, zero bulges and VPL’s – an overall better looking you.

 

Here’s to confidence and a fantastic body figure! Cheers to your stunning curves!

This is how You can measure Her

This is how You can measure Her

 

This is the basic anatomy of a bra that you should know before shopping for one.

Now let’s get started with a soft tape.

This is the first measurement you would want to take. It is just underneath her bust line. Don’t go too tight on it; just make sure it’s nice and firm. Hold it parallel straight across her torso while she exhales.

 

You would then take the tape and measure the fullest part of her bust in her best fitting bra, make sure it’s not an ill fitted one. Make sure the tape is not too tight for comfort.

 

After getting this measurement, subtract the number you get with the band size. Every number is ONE cup.

 

As modern bras are more elastic, it is not really necessary to add inches to the measure. You could round it up to the next even number and I won’t encourage adding inches to band measurement because it is usually inaccurate and that’s something you want to avoid.

 

So assuming her bust measurement is a 33, you subtract that with the 32 you got earlier and she’s an A Cup!

 

So what happens if what you measure is not what she usually wears? Don’t worry, 85% of women wear the wrong bra size.

 

Here’s how you can be an expert.

 

The support comes from the BAND, not the straps. The straps only provide about 10% of the support and its main function is to keep the bra in place.

 

How can you tell if she has been wearing the wrong sizes?

 

Make sure the centre panel (the piece between the cups) touches the skin. Check and see if there are any bra imprints on her skin. A well fitted bra should, of course fit, not leave any marks on the skin when it’s removed.

 

These are some simple tips you can share with her.

 

  • If the band rides up high, it means the band size is too big.
  • If the band cuts into the skin creating marks over her bra area, the band is too small.
  • If there is any room between the cup and the bust, the cup is too big.
  • If there is any spillage or excessive skin from the cups, it only means the cup is too small.
  • Make sure her straps are well adjusted so they don’t cut into her skin. They don’t have to be of an equal length, just as long as she’s comfortable.
