November 7, 2011

Nancy Gantz shapewear designer Janine Anggara explains how to choose the right shapewear for every occasion and outfit. Remember, you want to show off that sexy body, not your muffin top!

Bias-cut summer dress

You may think a slinky bias-cut dress might be out of bounds, but the right shapewear can smooth any lumps and bumps.

Try: Underbust Body Slip. For full body shaping under the slinkiest of racing dresses the Underbust Slip, is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Designed to sit under the bust and allowing the versatility to choose your own bra, it features an in-built power mesh bodysuit to sculpt and smooth your waist, leaving you with a gorgeous silhouette.

Fitted cocktail dress

Don’t dread the festive season – get out that gorgeous cocktail dress hiding in the closest!

Try: Allure Lace Slip. This slip features an inbuilt contour bra for defined shape and lift, whilst the slip gives maximum control – perfect for under the most fitted of body-con dresses! The lace detail will ensure you feel sexy both inside and out. Smooth and sexy!

High-waisted jeans

Not only do high-waisted jeans hide all number of sins, they’re actually making a comeback, so you don’t have to feel like a dag.

Try: Allure Lace Briefs. It’s essential to ensure one continuous smooth line under your most fitted pair of high-waisted jeans. This elegant high-waisted brief gives you firm control through the tummy and midriff area, all with a touch of glamour! Anti-slip elastic prevents pesky roll down from occurring with strategically placed lace panels, providing a smoothed finish all the way up to the bust.

Sheer blouse

Despite all your best intensions hunting for nude bras, they will always show through sheer tops.

Try: Allure Lace Cami. The luxurious Allure Lace Cami is the perfect solution for wearing under work clothes, being sleek and supportive on the tummy and midriff, with adjustable straps allowing you to wear your own bra. The luxurious base fabric has been teamed with feminine stretch lace that will take you from the office to after-work drinks.
