Shapewear: Your Secret Weapon For Body Confidence & Cute Outfits

Let’s talk body confidence. We all want it, and sometimes, a little extra something can nudge us in the right direction to feel amazing throughout our day. Enter shapewear! Now, I know what you might be thinking: shapewear is all about squeezing yourself into an uncomfortable and naturally unachievable mould. But hear me out! Shapewear can be a body-positive tool that empowers you to look and feel your most confident self with the correct amount of support in all of the right places…

Shapewear Is For Everyone:

  • Smooth Operator: Shapewear can smooth out lumps and bumps, giving you a clean silhouette under your clothes. This can be a game-changer for those clingy dresses or bodycon outfits as you’ll feel more polished and put-together, ready to take on the day.
  • Supportive Comfort: I find that the right shapewear can actually be super comfortable! Try to look for pieces which have been made with breathable fabrics and the right amount of compression. These garments can offer gentle support throughout the day, especially for your back and core support, or heavy bust.
  • Fit for Anything: Whether you’re rocking a wedding dress or your favourite jeans to the supermarket, shapewear can help your clothes to fit you better. It can eliminate visible lingerie lines and create a seamless line underneath your clothing.
  • Confidence Boost: Ultimately, shapewear is about feeling good in your own skin.When you feel put-together and supported, it really shows! That extra boost of confidence can radiate outward, making you feel unstoppable.

Shapewear truly isn’t just for one body type. There are styles available for all shapes and sizes, designed to flatter and support your unique curves as an individual. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find what type b works best for you!

Top Tips For Choosing Shapewear:

  • Comfort is key! Don’t go for something so tight it restricts your breathing or ability to move around comfortably.
  • Consider the occasion. Different outfits call for different levels of shaping.
  • The right size is essential. Shapewear that’s too small will dig into your skin, and if it’s too large it won’t provide the desired effect and support so be prepared to try different sizes from different brands until you find the one that is perfect for you.

Ploppy Dolly Bodysuit Thong Shapewear

I’m a huge fan of this thong shapewear bodysuit from Ploppy Dolly which is perfect for enhancing your body’s natural shape. Its thong back is ideal for its second-skin fit to avoid harsh lingerie lines under slim fitting clothing. With fully adjustable straps, full back coverage to smooth the upper back and an adjustable hook and eye closure at the crotch for easy manoeuvring, it sculpts, smooths and defines your curves with such elegance and grace.

This bodysuit is so stretchy and high-quality, being beautifully lightweight whilst also breathable, smooth and gentle enough to wear all day without itching or irritating. Like a gentle hug, this shapewear focuses upon body shaping, waist snatching and stomach slimming for extra control and the accentuation of your curves when you need it most.

I’ve tried shapewear in the past, when it first became a trend, which left me sweating, uncomfortably itching, and dug into my hips and bra line, ultimately cutting my skin within an hour or so of wearing it. How refreshing it is to see how far technology has advanced to become both practical and fashionable without the “no pain, no gain” motto! I love how this bodysuit supports me in all of the right places without making me feel suffocated or causing obvious lingerie lines.

I find that when I wear shapewear, whether its hidden beneath my clothes or shown as a pretty top with jeans or a skirt, I stand taller, sit upright and have a much better posture with a spring in my step. Remember, shapewear is a tool, not a magic solution. It can enhance your confidence, but true body positivity comes from loving and appreciating your unique body. So, embrace your body and curves for everything that you are, and if shapewear helps you to feel your very best then rock it with pride!
