How to choose shapewear for plus size women ?

Women with full figures often find it difficult to purchase fashionable clothes that do not bring unwanted attention to bulges, cellulites, and other unflattering imperfections of the body. A dress that looks absolutely stunning where it hangs on the rack may, in the fitting room, seem like an entirely different piece of clothing altogether. Luckily, there is an easy and comfortable way to overcome the difficulties associated with shopping for plus-size fashion, and it is called shapewear. Perfect for correcting flaws and drawing attention away from unflattering areas of the body, shapewears are the foundation garment that smoothes out targeted areas of the body, so that whatever is worn on top looks at its best.

Many women make the mistake of buying shapewear in a smaller size to shave inches off their waist, but this often leads to the item rolling up or even cutting into the skin. Selecting the perfect shapewear for your figure can be a challenge, but the following guidelines will help you choose the best option for your shape.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT KIND

 A good starting point is to ask oneself what areas of the body one wants to correct, and then start looking for shapewear that provides an effective solution to achieve this goal. Some pieces of shapewear are designed to have a broad and general effect, in that they cover a large area of the body, much like a classic bodysuit. This broad approach may be useful for individuals who want to achieve an improved overall figure, with no particular body zone being more problematic than any other. Other individuals may find this approach too blunt, however, and think it more useful to use targeted shapewear, i.e., pieces that were designed to alter the shape of specific areas of the body. Usually, this involves correcting smaller flaws around the waist, bust, hip, and torso areas. Some people find it helpful to have a collection of different shapewear items that can be worn in different combinations to achieve their desired body shape.

STICK TO YOUR SIZE

One of the main advantages of modern shapewear is its unobtrusive character. Where the corset was notoriously harsh on the body, shapewear is surprisingly comfortable. The key to maximising the comfort factor is getting the right measurements. A first-time buyer of shapewear should take care to gather proper measurements of targeted body areas instead of relying on the eye. Not only will this guarantee a comfortable fit, but it also avoids the creation of new lumps or bulges that may arise from poorly fitted shapewear, or from unnatural cramming.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT COLOR

Shapewear is worn underneath regular clothes, usually with the aim of being invisible. For shapewear not to be seen through the actual outfit, particularly when it comes to lighter colours, it is important that it matches the overall colour nuance of the clothes. When wearing a light dress, for instance, it would be unwise to wear black shapewear, as it is likely to be seen through the garment. For this reason, many people find it useful to have a collection of different colours so that they always have a piece of shapewear that matches the colour of the outfit worn.

CHOOSE A FULL BODY SUIT

The bodysuit is popular because it creates a head-to-toe streamlined shape, saving you the trouble of finding separate top and bottom pieces that work. The all-over coverage is a plus for women who want to minimize their bust line, but it has a chest-flattening effect like that of many sports bras. If that doesn’t work for you, cut around the bust and let your bra do the work of supporting your chest. There are also styles which come with Bra Top that has a built-in bra.

As can be seen from this guide, the plus-size individual has many options to choose from when it comes to buying shapewear. While some prefer to use general large-surface shapewear, other individuals want to target particular areas of the body with specific shapewear solutions. Regardless of one’s preferences, shapewear is easily accessible and can be found in most lingerie stores and department stores. The Internet and online retailers such as eBay also make the process easier and offer a huge selection of plus-size shapewear in all shapes and sizes.

Footwears

Leather shoes or sandals aren’t great in the rain as they tend to soak water and dry very slowly. Instead, choose jelly shoes, flats, floaters and any other sturdy footwear, which is also slip resistant. Avoid loose sandals as they tend to squirt dirt back on to you.
