Finding the perfect sparkly dress for New Year’s Eve is the easy part. Finding the right lingerie to go under it can be hard! Party dresses usually come with some lingerie challenges: plunging necklines, clinging fabrics or strapless designs. Today I’m going to show you some items to make your holiday look seamless, no matter what you’ve chosen to wear.
The Basics: Smoothing
If you’re looking to get a smoothing effect rather than a shaping effect, we have some great shapewear basics that work equally well under a party dress or under your favorite suit pants at work. This Flirty Dot Shaping Thong is fashionable, high waisted and looks great under anything. If you need a basic strapless, you can’t go wrong with this Alison Convertible Bra. It will work under your party dress, but also under halter necks in the summer and cross back tops. We also carry great thigh slimming products, like our Lace Miracle Thigh Slimmer. These shorts are great when you just need some extra smoothing over your thighs and butt.
Level Two: Smoothing and Full Body Shaping
If you need something with more hold to go under a clingy dress, try our Slenderizing Shaping Slip. It’s great for shaping your whole body at once, but can be worn with your favorite bra. It also has a slightly vintage look, which makes it pretty and practical. For variation, try our Sensual Slimming Camisole. It has pretty lace details and great smoothing power.
Level Three: Operation Slim
If you want serious shaping or want to take off a few inches to make that dress a bit more comfortable, this is the level of shapewear you want to look at. Start with either our Katia Lace Bodysuit or our Zoe Cincher. These are both made from materials like cotton, rubber and latex but don’t be fooled - they provide shaping almost equal to that of a corset. In the right size, these pieces can take 2 to 3 inches off your waist.
And finally, if you just can’t find a bra that works under your dress, try our Breast Petal nipple concealers. These are great under thin camisoles or blouses as well, but they work well under party and club outfits as well.
