Time Out New York is called “New York City’s comprehensive source for arts and entertainment listings”. While TONY posted online its top four picks for holiday shapewear in plenty of time for those office parties, LipoSite says shapelier bodies top women’s wish lists every day of the year.
“Unlike the filmy slips and gargantuan girdles of the 1960s and ‘70s,” says Shawn Miele for LipoSite, “today’s shapewear is good looking, highly effective and comfortable enough to appeal to people’s desire to look thinner and more shapely year ‘round.”
Shapewear is any piece of clothing (though, typically, underwear or undergarments) that is designed to conceal rolls, bulges and dimpling along the waist, thighs and butt. Shapewear can also build up areas of the body like the chest, backside, etc.
“TONY’s Elizabeth Denton does a great job of highlighting silhouette-smoothing gear from Skinnygirl by Bethenny Frankel, Jockey, Maidenform, Ami Clubwear and Victoria’s Secret,” Miele admits.
“But, women use shapewear to look good nearly every single day. Some of our readers even use it to get an idea of which plastic surgeries will most benefit them – or how their bodies might look after liposuction. Basically, they use it to get a pre-surgery preview.”
Shapewear includes everything from tummy-trimming tanks to body-hugging leggings and thigh-control bodysuits. Butt-shaping panties are a favorite among consumers whose backside could use a little extra padding. Shapewear half and full slips are both known to work well under body-skimming skirts and dresses.
“A common misconception,” warns Miele, “is that shapewear and compression garments are the same thing. They can be made from similar materials, but they serve two totally different purposes. Shapewear creates a foundation under clothing. Compression wear limits post-surgical pain, swelling and movement to encourage rapid healing.”
LipoSite readers and other women have frequently had or are looking into body-sculpting procedures, including liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or combination surgeries (i.e. mommy makeover)
Miele says trying on their options helps women find their best plastic surgery fit, which is easier now that big names from Donna Karan to Spanx and Yummie Tummie offer designs in all shapes and sizes with varying levels of control built in.
