What if you could appear to have lost ten pounds in minutes, simply by putting on the right dress? Thanks to innovative fashion designers, now you can. While you won’t actually lose the weight with new shapewear-inspired dresses, fashion designers are taking notice of the trends in women’s fashion and the need for more shape-friendly styles.

Weight fluctuation, aging, and childbirth can all cause the body to start sagging or putting on pounds in all the wrong places. Shapewear can help women feel more confident by disguising imperfections and smoothing out muffin tops, love handles, and saddlebags.

Shapewear pieces are made from elastic fabrics that compress and redistribute fat to make you look slimmer and more evenly shaped. Let’s take look at the different types of shapewear on the market.

Shapewear Dresses

Dresses with integrated shaping fabric are the newest trend in shapewear. Take a look at this segment to see the difference before and after as women put on these dresses.

Shapewear Undergarments

Shapewear Solutions for Battling the Bulge 2

Ever heard of Spanx? Shapewear began with undergarments, and these items are still the best way to smooth out lumps and bumps under your favorite clothing. It’s worth having several colors and lengths of shapewear undergarments so you can wear your clothing with confidence.

Popular brands include Spanx, Maidenform, Playtex, and Ultimo. Different undergarment types include high waisted/long leg (for thighs and muffin tops), briefs (for stomach), or full body (for all-over smoothing and control). Chances are, you’ll be able to find shapewear for most problem areas.

Boost Your Confidence

Of course, shapewear can only do so much. For lasting weight loss and confidence, a healthy diet and exercise combined with gentle SmartLipo laser liposuction could be the answer.

If you have isolated pockets of fat that don’t respond to exercise and cause you embarrassment, you might be an ideal candidate for Smartlipo. Patients should be within about 25 pounds of their ideal weight to get the best results from liposuction, as it is not a weight loss tool.

Our New York Smartlipo surgeons have perfected the art of laser liposuction, and can help you get a smooth, sexy body that you’ll be proud to show off in whatever you wear.
