Strapless Shapewear

One of the most overlooked items in a women’s wardrobe are undergarments. They’re considered more of a necessary evil than a luxury. It’s not until absolutely needed do most women go out and restock their proverbial underwear drawer.

I’ve written about my favorite shape wear and why you need it, but this time I thought I’d focus on summer shape wear necessities: Strapless Shapewear.

Strapless, halter, backless, off the shoulder, and cross front tops and dresses are very popular during the summer months. In order to wear these styles most effectively it’s important to have the right support underneath. For some that’s as simply as a strapless bra, but others may want more support for the entire torso. The key however, is to find the right shapewear that’s appropriate for your outfit.

Here are a few options to consider.

In addition, if you’re wearing strapless shapewear that’s not padded, consider adding breast forms to conceal your nipples. Pads and breast petals are great to wear with any bra or if you also decide to go braless.  If you go braless just remember to use breast lift tape so the girls are positioned correctly. To minimize movement you can also use tape to lift and hold. And use fashion tape to keep your garment in place. 

Now that summer is underway, be sure to stock up on a few summer essentials. Preparation will ensure you look your best and most confident every time you step out the door.

Live, laugh, and unapologetically shine,
