There a few essential intimate items every women needs. Black and nude panties with matching bras, great lingerie and great shapewear. When it comes to looking flawless, we all get a little help now and then. Shapewear is essential in providing the help we need by giving us a smooth and controlled silhouette. With so many different styles around, I’ve teamed up with Kohl’s to let you know what shapewear I use to help me dress up in my favorite dresses day or night. Let’s get started!
1. Naomi & Nicole Comfortable Firm High-Waist Brief
This style is one of my favorite because you can wear it with everything. Its underwear and shapewear all in one. What’s great about the Naomi & Nicole brand is they specialize in making shapewear that keeps your garments in place with Wonderful Edge. Wonderful Edge is a patented silicone edge that prevents ride up or roll down. This specialty breathes naturally and is invisible through clothes. Yay for no pantie lines! Naomi & Nicole also has a specialty feature called Back Magic. This feature provide more waist shaping and amazing all around comfort especially for the back. Kohl’s also carries extra firm styles for the extra compression and support. For this style, I buy my true size, but the brand recommends possibly sizing up depending on how you carry your weight.
This style is one that I would consider perfect for everyday wear. You can wear it with short, jeans, skirts, literally with everything. I like to wear mine when I plan on wearing somewhat of a tight dress just for that extra tummy control. The dress below is one of my favorite maxi dresses. Although it’s a little tight in the tummy area, when I pair it with the Naomi & Nicole Comfortable Firm High-Waist Brief. I get a more control, a smoother tummy area and it gives me a bit more wiggle room.
2. Maidenform Shapewear Sleek Smoothers Boyshorts
This style is great for casual wear and works great mainly under any type of bottoms for a smooth silhouette. Maidenform also provides some great features for their shapewear. Their items target tummy, hips, thigh and rear control, provide smooth and stretchy fabric to give you super support. It’s also great for supporting unwanted back fat especially when you are wearing tighter garments. Kohl’s sells different styles of this style, some go higher on the torso some side above the belly button, but they serve the same purpose. For this style it’s best to buy the sizes truest to you or to size up. You don’t want to get a size down. That will create a bulging look and the legs of the short could roll up and become very uncomfortable.
On most occasions, I wear this when I’m wearing a pants or a tight skirt. This can also be worn under different style of dresses. It can be worn with Body-cons, T-Shirt dresses, skater dresses. I wore this Maidenform Shapewear Sleek Smoothers Boyshorts with this fancy ruffle skater dress. Although this dress is very lose in the mid-drift area, I still like to feel supported and wanted to prevent any chub rub that may happen on a hot day.
3. ASSETS Red Hot Label by Spanx Sleek Slimmers Tank Slip
This shapewear tank dress is definitely an essential. Because I wear dresses mostly during the week and for work, I have a few of these in stock. They are the perfect slimming spanx for tummy and mid tight area. I love this brand because even when it’s hot out and I don’t feel like layering, the material is light and the slimming level is only a medium so it’s not uncomfortable for all day wear. Of course with this style you are limited to what you can wear it with. You can wear this will all types of dresses and a top and skirt that you would wear together. Although the one here is a scoop neck style, Kohl’s does offer V neck, strapless, and Open-Bust style and dresses with different strap sizes.
As you can see below this tank dress spanx helped me achieve a very smooth silhouette and helps control my tummy and mid-drift area.
Although these 3 styles are my go to must stock shapewear picks, Kohl’s’ offers so many different options and brands for unbeatable prices. Whether you are dressing up or dressing down you can definitely find some that meets your needs. You can check out Kohl’s Shapewear options here or head to your local Kohl’s store.
