One thing that I am not always good at is wearing the right undergarments. I just plain forget, or don’t think I have to time to put on yet another piece of clothing. Then, all it takes is putting on the right undergarment to make me realize what I have been missing.
I wore this outfit to a fashion event last fall, and I felt great in it, until I saw pictures and was like OMG! I didn’t have on a bodyshaper underneath and should have had one on. I don’t know what I was thinking! I think I was so caught up in going here and there, and being concerned with what I was wearing that I forgot about a bodyshaper.
When I went shopping at Kohl’s for some shapewear I knew I wanted to take this dress for a spin again with the proper bodyshaper. The difference it makes is amazing-I feel more pulled together and smoothed out.
I am wearing this ASSETS Red Hot Label by Spanx underneath my dress-it is so comfortable. What I have found in the past with some shapers is that they are so uncomfortable and hard to get on. I was surprised at how easy this one was to slip on. Typically with shapers (and pantyhose) you have to move and groove in ways you never thought your body moved-not this one!
I grabbed a couple of other shapewear pieces from Kohl’s, too. As much as I love the mid thigh body shaper, I knew it’s not something that I am going to wear with anything other than a dress or a skirt. I was pleasantly surprised at the selection Kohl’s had and was able to find some shapewear pieces that I could easily incorporate into my wardrobe.
I grabbed these Bali True Control Shaping Briefs (I got FIRM-I’m not messing around!) so I can wear them with more form fitting pants. It just makes me feel more….tight! I like how they give me a little tummy control, without looking like your typical shapewear undergarment. The little lace detail makes them a little more appealing!
I also grabbed this Maidenform Shapewear Camisole. I have some great jeans that I absolutely love but I don’t like to wear them with tight tops. This tank really smooths me out and keeps things tucked into my jeans, just the way I like it! I have found it to be a great addition to some of my outfits-I just feel more in place.
