As anyone knows who has had a baby it is all smoke and mirrors the first few months to hide the flab and look good. I am a HUGE fan of shapewear, I have a drawer filled with Spanx that I wear often. I thought I would share my top 7 favorite shapewear items and hope you will fill me in on your favorites!
This is probably my most favorite shapewear piece and the one I wear most often. I wear it under almost all my dresses especially the thin tee shirt and silk ones. It sucks you in like no other. I have a size small, you want it fitted not loose so order accordingly. This is such a great slip.
I know these probably seem Granny to you but they are awesome under formal dresses and skirts. They smooth out any love handles. I bought these before my wedding to wear to our Rehearsal Dinner and have been using them ever since.
These camis are great to wear under blouses, tee shirts, anything you don't want to have a bulge sticking out. My mom swears by these too and wears them daily.
The best tights ever for a sleek sucked in look. I have these in black and love them. The only tights you need! It is worth investing in one nice pair of black tights.
For when you need a lighter weight slip with spaghetti straps this one is awesome.
I don't wear this one as often as the tank versions but it is really nice to have on hand when you have a strapless dress to wear. Back when we used to have alot of weddings and events to attend I wore this one all the time.
I have sung the praises of these leggings many times but had to include them on this list because I lived in them post baby. I swear I think they helped my stomach flatten back up quicker because they kept everything sucked in. What I like is that they have a band at the waist that keeps everything tight and smooth. I had the full length version but sadly it looks like they are sold out on most sites. But I did see they just came out in this Capri version- I am definitely getting these for this Spring, Also available in different colors here.
