A few weeks ago, a svelte and fashionable Eva Longoria Parker disembarked from her car wearing a striking strappy one-shouldered dress, but horrors… her Spanx shapers were showing! And though it certainly was far from being a Britney Spears moment, it was shocking to see the starlet unaware of her underwear. Yet, celebrities are only human and have to battle the bulge too.
Thankfully, shapewear can help. Unlike the girdles of generation's past, shapewear now comes in stretchy high tech fabrics that can wick away moisture and lift or minimize depending on what you need. So it might be just the thing to wear under a dress for that special occasion or to assist with the inevitable after-Thanksgiving bloating and lumpiness. We've rounded up a few shapewear options that can greatly enhance your dressing and enable you to wear things that you normally wouldn't. In putting together the slideshow, we discovered two very exciting things: the 50% off sale on shapewear at Figleaves.com and the discovery of the strapless torso trim by Sassybax. Breathe a sigh of relief (but not too deeply!) because you can finally approach the party season with newfound confidence in your sleeker self.
