One of the points we've stressed over and over again is the importance of shape wear. These undergarments helps your clothing drape properly over your body and often enhances your body shape.
In general, when wearing dresses made of sheer, lightweight fabrics such as chiffon or charmeuse choose simple lingerie that will reveal no lines underneath. Heavy materials like brocade or velvet can conceal lace, ribbons, or embroidered trim on seductively feminine undergarments.
If you purchase special underwear for your wedding day, try wearing it a few times first so you're used to it and stretches to fit your body on your big day.
Here are some undergarments organized by the body part they flatter!
Unlike other shapewear that is useful but not pretty, a corset, has intricate lace detailing as well as discreet boning that creates an attractive hourglass shape.
A long line is a type of pantyhose that has built-in thigh shapers that lift and lengthen.
The wide lace band on these stay-in-place panties won't ride or roll up on the hips.
An alternative to the thong, microfiber boy shorts eliminate the possibility of having an unsightly panty line while providing a smooth surface even under a tight fit.
High-waisted panties feature a reinforced panel to compress your stomach area and flatter your rear.
To slim your tummy, rear, and thighs all at once, look for a thigh-length slip with stitching that both smoothes and controls.
A lengthening bustier with a center panel that supports and lifts your bustline is all you need.
A smoothing slip keeps wobbly bits in check and provides control for the least forgiving cut of all: the sheath.
