Turn Heads at Prom...Shapewear - A Thick Girl's Closet

Turn Heads at Prom...Shapewear

10:41 PM

Hello Loves, So now that we covered the dress, let's address what to wear under them. As a curvy/plus size full figured girl, your undergarments, spanx, shapewear are ESSENTIAL. It's not about looking skinny. Its about having neat and clean silhouette. There is nothing worse that seeing a girl in a beautiful dress, and you can tell she needs shapewear and isn't wearing it.

It's also important to know that you should not be embarrassed about wearing shapewear. It is SUPA common, even our slender counterparts wear spanx or shapewear as well. Trust when I tell you, it makes a world of a difference. So here are some things to remember with shapewear...

1.Something that holds you in, but you can breath.
-Don't buy a size smaller thinking that it will give you more hold. That you will only make you uncomfortable.

2.You want something with full coverage. 
-Not everyone can wear a waist cincher. You don't want something that is going to create spillage.

3. Make sure what ever you get, goes with the dress. 
-This should go with out saying. but if you have straps that criss cross or something, make sure you purchase something that as movable or adjustable straps.And obviously if you are wear strapless, either purchase and all in one that has detachable straps or buy a high waist briefs and wear your own bra.

So lets check out some options.

Lane Bryant Shapewear

Macy's Shapewear

One thing to remember when buying shapewear, you have to feel comfortable in what you have on. Do not be afraid to try on different types of lengths. Do not be afraid to ask the sales associates for help. Some places like Lane Bryant (I would know I use to work there). I know Macy's can really help you with finding something can really make you look your best on your big day.

So there you have it. Stay tuned for shoes...

    Some sort of Waist Cincher can certainly increase hot figure for a human body simply by smoothing available unpleasant bulges to give you of which hourglass physique.
