Shapewear makes curve-hugging, body-loving fashions comfortable and effortless

During the 19th century, women wore tight corsets to make their waists tiny and give their figure the appearance of the letter "S" with a large bust, a tiny waist, and a bustled backside.

Some things truly never change. Fall fashion for 2010 displays a resurgence in early 1960ís fashion, calling for curve accentuating silhouettes and the 1950ís hourglass figure was front and center on the runway with bustier tops and curve hugging, below the knee pencil skirts. Todayís shapewear offers effortless ways to achieve these looks.

Shapewear has dramatically changed and is slowly becoming a staple in most womenís lingerie drawers. The evolution of fabrics, such as advanced powernet, have produced comfortable compression garments that not only smooth out trouble areas but lift, tone and tighten the whole body. Everyone looks effortlessly fabulous when they wear compression shapewear.

Here are a few pieces of compression shapewear youíll need to layer under this coming seasonís looks to stay on trend:

1. Skinny cargo pants are casual and light weight. You can easily squeeze into a pair with a comfortable full leg compression body shaper. Seamless, the shapewear reshapes the thighs, flattens calves and accents the hips.  Leggings are still in play with no sign of fading. Slipping on a full body shaper for an extra layer of warmth and all over slim down will keep you looking long and lean. 

2. For an added lift in one of fallís top denim trends a seamless high waist shapewear with thigh compression comes in handy with molded removable padding.  The cropped 50ís style jeans paired with a tucked in button down or cropped sweater will prove to be more alluring with added volume.  Thermal neo-latex panels are strategically placed on the outer thighs and lower tummy area to aid in reducing trouble spots on top of smoothing them out.

The combination of stretch fabric, neo-latex, and cotton offer maximum control and is moisture-wicking, so there is no need to worry about sweating.

3. The little black dress has remained a staple every season. Whether you revive it from your closet for  an event, or a casual night out a black dress is perfect for almost any occasion. Do define your waistline and create a curvaceous figure for an ascetically pleasing look in this chic piece.

A panty style compression shaper will drastically reduce your waist size creating a classic hour glass figure, and donít worry about a sleeveless, spaghetti strapped or strapless look. Most shapers have convertible straps and the compression on the back area of the shapewear flattens out and tones the area to prevent the unsightly bulge.

With a little fashion savvy, you can learn to make this seasonís trends work for you and with a little help from compression shapewear youíll minimize your troubled areas and maximize your best features.
