Olivia Colman swears by them. Kim Kardashian wears two at a time and even created her own brand! We’re talking about shapewear, and these days, they’re as much a red-carpet staple as the gorgeous gown draped on top of them.
From waist cinchers to tummy control pants, getting the underpinnings spot-on is a must for celebrity stylists. They know that, while the designer dress is the beautiful work of art, the shapewear is the canvas.
With such a vital role to perform, it’s time we all made like the A-list and started investing in our shapewear collections. Building up your own personal stash means you’ll always have exactly the right piece for every occasion, from a day at the office to that special occasion you have planned.
But before you start buying, first take an honest inventory of your lingerie drawer. As shapewear only sees the light of day for one-off events, you may find you’ve had the same tummy control underwear for longer than you’d care to remember. If so, it’s time for an upgrade. Say goodbye to those sweaty, organ-constricting fabrics you can’t wait to take off because shapewear for women has really moved on in recent years - and you may find it rocks your world.
Today’s curve-boosting briefs, bras and bodysuits come in lightweight fabrics and they’re bursting with innovative features. The best shapewear is so comfortable you may even forget you’re wearing it, plus it’ll smooth and shape your body better than Photoshop.
In fact, it’s easy to get hooked on their magical sculpting powers and want to wear them every day, but with that comes a problem. Which one of the many options do you really need to smooth your own personal trouble spots? Luckily, Pour Moi is here to help.
