Just because temperatures are reaching 90 degrees regularly this summer, doesn’t mean it’s time to forego our favorite slimming garments. I know I still want to look great in my summer LBD (little black dress) and the chiffon, flirty mini-dress I have set aside for an upcoming wedding.
How to look slim and fabulous without drowning in summer sweat? Go light! Did you know there was such a thing as Summer shapewear? With these lightweight, breathable choices you can look smooth and slim without feeling like you want to run to the bathroom and peel them off!
Here are my favorite summer shaping pieces:
1- You love a thong but need tummy control? This seamless high waisted brief from Commando is your go-to choice. Great under white pants or skirts when bought in nude.
2- The Yummie Tummie solution for your strapless dress is a shaping slip. Also great for dresses with one shoulder or halter necklines, this paper thin fabric is the solution for your summer wardrobe needs.
3– For a great little shortie that’s silky smooth and seamless, I love this one from the Slimplicity line by Spanx. Shorter than the usual bike-short shape, it stops chafing in the thighs but isn’t as heavy as longer leg options.
4- If you want to wear your own bra, choose an open bust shaper. This luxurious Hanro version will smooth the tummy, waist and upper back so that your favorite bra never gives you back fat again.
5- A one-stop-shop for all things shapewear? Go for this all in one shaping slip by ResultWear that provides slimming through the hips, tummy and rear as well as lift and support at the breast. It’s lightweight mesh and super sexy.
