30 Nov

From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, get-togethers abound.  There’s ample opportunity to get dressed up, eat too much, and visit with co-workers, friends, and family, some of whom you haven’t seen for a while.  Such anticipated reunions may spark your desire to look svelte.  It’s always a bummer when you run across someone you haven’t seen for some time and feel like you don’t look your best.  And it’s always easier to enjoy yourself mingling at a party when you’re confident that you look fabulous.  That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your Holiday 2010 ensembles include the right pieces of shapewear.

Are you tired of spending Labor Day weekend at the pool, your neighbor’s backyard barbeque, or your local mall trying to finish your back-to-school shopping?  Do you want to experience something new, perhaps act a bit crazy, just once in early September?  How about jetting to Paris this weekend for the annual Interfilière and Mode City trade fairs?  They’re premiere international intimates trade shows, held jointly, that bring together the world’s leading lingerie makers and their fabric suppliers.  This will be your last chance.  Next year, this event is being moved to mid-July.  And while Paris is always a great place to visit, it’s best to see it outside the height and heat of the tourist season.

Leaves will soon begin to change their colors, so it’s time to start considering your fall wardrobe.  This year’s autumn inspirations range from the 1950s and early 1960s, to lower hemlines, splashes of gold, and leather.  Next season’s fashion trends are sure to make your curves look fantastic.  And the right shapewear will take those trends to the next level.

The focus on the hourglass silhouette remains, as the popularity of Mad Men continues.  This curve-friendly trend can be used in many flattering ways.  For example, consider wearing a funnel neck to bring eyes up to your pretty face, and wearing your hair up for a polished effect. In addition, try donning a smoothing camisole or torsette under your sweater for a more sophisticated look. […]

Bump up that Rump

Fashion is, indeed, a fickle beast.

For most of the past several centuries, women have squirmed and twisted their way into full-length corsets, girdles, control-top pantyhose, and any other garments that promised to slim ample hips and backsides.  When those slenderizing promises didn’t exactly come to fruition, most pear-shaped ladies concealed their abundant assets beneath long and shapeless skirts, fervently hoping that no eyes strayed south-of-the-border to Nature’s plenty.
