The Best Undergarments to Shape, Contour & Boost

Clothes do more than keep you warm – they have the power to create illusions. What you’re wearing is either making you appear smaller or bigger; younger or older; sexy or drab.  The style and shape of your clothing ( ie flare vs straight skirt, v-neckline vs  crew neckline, cap sleeves or 3/4 sleeves) and how well it is suited to your body shape (the two should be in alignment) is very important in how your body appears.

However, your undergarments set the stage. Undergarments are very important in making subtle touches such as creating a slimmer waist, a trim behind or a more curvaceous figure. So before you get dressed invest in undergarments to create a good foundation.

Here are a few pieces that you will need to get you started:

To minimize a large chest choose a minimizing bra that provides extra support and also looks appealing. If you have a large bust, to appear more youthful your bust line should be halfway between your shoulder and elbow. A sagging bust is aging.

To slim legs hold in belly, behind, hips and legs wear a body shaper or stretchy slip to hide bumps and create a smooth look. The type you choose depends on what you’re wearing. The undergarment shouldn’t be visible through your clothes.

To slim the middle area and create curves wear a corset.

Look Great in T-shirts and Sweaters wear bras that have molded cups so there are no visible seams and lace showing.

Peeking Straps are a no-no. Wear a camisole with a built in underwire bra. It is great for lift and you won’t have to worry about peeking straps. Or wear a racer back (for tanks with high cut sleeves) or strapless.
