If you thought that Bodycon (short for body-conscious) dresses are only for people with perfect bodies, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Bodycon dresses are tight-fitting dresses that accentuate rather than conceal.
Let’s face it; we all have parts of our bodies that we wish we could change.
Bodycon promotes the idea that we should all be comfortable with our bodies as they are or with a bit of help.
The best shapewear for Bodycon dresses can help us achieve that level of comfort and confidence so that we can all rock that tight-fitting dress.
Whether you want to play up a certain part of your body or just flatten another too curvy curve, shapewear will help you to feel more comfortable and confident.
So, if you have it, you should definitely flaunt it.
Shapewear for the Uninitiated
Whether you have the confidence to wear a bodycon dress or not, good shapewear can improve the look of any clothing.
The secret of good shapewear is that it can help to improve your profile and smooth and firm up those parts you would rather change.
Some of us are apple-shaped, some pear-shaped, some are built like rectangles.
It is important to know your body type so that you can decide what you want from your shapewear.
Do you want a lifted rear, a flattened tummy, a lifted bust line?
Good shapewear can help to mold the body into a more pleasing profile.
It can’t make you smaller but you will love the difference that a lifted rounded rear makes to your outfit or how lifting and accentuating the bust line will change your whole look.
To get the best out of shapewear you must follow a few rules.
Sizes vary between different manufacturers.
It helps if you know your waist measurements.
Always buy shapewear in the size you usually wear, never one size smaller.
