“Dressing sexy” means many different things to many different people.  A sheer blouse or form-fitting pair of pants can be good examples of sexy clothes.  However, for purposes of this post, “dressing sexy” is all about wearing the eye-popping, head-turning sort of an outfit that one packs for a trip to Las Vegas.  Such sexy dress styles can feature low-cut necklines, super-short hemlines, or special fabrics that cling or have an eye-catching shine.  So choosing the right shaper for these heart-racing frocks is of paramount importance.  The proper shapewear can take the right dress or gown, from merely form-fitting, to va-va-voom!   Not sure for what you should be on the lookout?  Not to worry.  The intimates advice below will help you maximize your sex appeal when wearing the following types of alluring fashions:  […]

Dear Shapewear Diary: Thoughts about the Shapewear Experience V

Torsette / Comfortable Firm® Control

Dear Shapewear Diary,

Brrr!  It’s getting cold outside!  Since I’m cold-blooded, I get chilly fast, and given that I produce so little heat of my own, the idea of adding a layer of shapewear sounded great!  So, for my next shapewear experience, I decided to wear a torsette.  A torsette is a silhouette that’s also known as an under-bust camisole.  I wore it to work under a long-sleeve, lightweight sweater and slacks, and liked how smooth and firm I felt.  Its Comfortable Firm® control shaped and smoothed me.  This level of control seems like a good choice for anyone who wants to be shaped and smoothed over a long period of time.  I’d advise any woman who’s new to shapewear to try a Comfortable Firm® control garment instead of one providing extra firm control because it’ll probably give her the look she wants with a feel that’s not so intense.

The Best Underwear for a Zombie Apocalypse

Lately, talk of zombies and a zombie apocalypse has been everywhere.  No longer merely content for ghost stories, video games, and sci-fi thrillers, this topic is drawing consideration by more “academic” circles.  For example, last week The History Channel aired a two-hour documentary called “Zombies: A Living History.”  On May 16th of this year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a post in their Public Health Matters Blog entitled “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse” in which the author detailed an emergency preparedness plan that every American should consider adopting in the face of a zombie threat.  It also discussed how the CDC would respond to such a cataclysmic event – particularly if caused by a virus like solanum.  Since the U.S. Government takes this threat seriously, we, as a thought leader of the intimate-apparel industry, feel a moral obligation to do the same.  So, what follows is what may be a first-of its-kind consideration of the types of underwear every woman should have on hand, should hordes of the undead rise and destroy civil society as we know it.

Which Torsette Is Right for You?

You may already know that the torsette is one of the latest styles of shapewear.  But did you know that torsette styling is available in a myriad of silhouette variations?  Torsettes are made for women who want to wear their own bras with shapewear.  They smooth the same places camisoles smooth, but include no material over the bust area.  This design solves a problem for women who have large or small breasts, or have difficulty finding properly-fitting shapers with the correct cup size.  It also helps women who are top heavy and want to wear all-in-one shapers that give the proper amount of control around the back, tummy, thigh, and midriff areas.  In addition to providing these solutions, the torsette allows customers to choose from plunge, push-up, demi, balconette, full-coverage, minimizing, or any other types of bras to ensure coordination with their fashions, moods, or audiences.  […]
