Lingerie does more than look good; it can alter your body in subtle, but very noticeable, ways. However, if you want to pick the right underwear to change the way you look, it’s important to know your shape as well as knowing what options you have to emphasize it.
The Bottom Floor
Which panties you wear can have a big effect on how you look and feel. For instance, if you want to minimize your panty line and emphasize a flat tummy, then low rise panties are the ideal choice for you and your body type. On the other hand high-waist cut panties work well under dresses or jeans when you want something to help cinch your belly and shape your butt. They might not be the sexiest looking, but the results they get are undeniable. For those women who want to wear hose, but who don’t want the extra complication of wearing panties with them, there are pantyhose available that have a cotton crotch, and which support your backside while shaping your legs. They’re almost like magic.
Cinch, Pull and Tuck
Throughout history undergarmeants have been used to shape a woman’s torso. While many of these garmeants, like corsets and waist-cinchers might seem like things out of fashion’s most arcane past, they’re making a comeback in a big way. While these garmeants come in both fashion and practical versions, they narrow the belly, and emphasize the bust and hips. They might not always be comfortable, but they can get the job done more effectively than almost anything else we have in the modern day.
Even for those who don’t find Ren Faire garb to be to their taste, there are still a slew of undergarmeants that can alter their shapes. Push up bras are perhaps one of the most basic examples of this. The cups support and lift, making your breasts seem perkier than they would be if left to their own devices. Belly sleeves, which are stretchy tubes of fabric that slip up over the stomach, can often slim down your middle with minimal discomfort. There are a lot of different options for undergarmeants that can alter how your body looks. The illusion can also be added to with the proper outfits, which emphasize certain areas and play down others. It is important to remember though, sooner or later you’re going to have to take your clothes off.
