What's the best shapewear? Well, we are here to walk you through the best selling shapewear on Belle Lingerie. Shapewear comes in all shapes and sizes, with styles to suit everybody and every purpose. We are big fans of shapewear to help boost your confidence and make you feel your best. Some think shapewear is only for occasions but that is simply not true. You can have shapewear for work, shapewear for shopping, shapewear for a night out... whatever you are doing, there is shapewear fit for purpose. Keep reading this blog to see why you should buy shapewear and the best shapewear designed to flatter. 

Why buy shapewear? 

Get that confidence boost - Shapewear can simply be a great confidence booster for the everyday. We all have little areas we are not so fond of, that's totally normal. Although we encourage you to love your body and your curves, sometimes we all just want a little helping hand to look and feel our best. Shapewear can simply smooth out and accentuate our best assets. When you wear shaping lingerie under your clothes, you might walk a little taller and feel more confident as you walk into a room ... who doesn't want that? Shapewear can also give you the courage to wear whatever you want! It is unrealistic for everyone to feel super confident in tight-fitting clothes any day of the month. We should all be happy in our own skin, but the truth is, sometimes we aren't. So that's where shapewear can come in handy and give you the freedom to express your style with confidence.

Shapewear for everyone - We are also here to myth bust when comes to shapewear. Some believe that shapewear is only for the over 60's, but that's really not the case anymore. Look at Kim Kardashian! She's in her 30's and has made leaps and bounds for the shapewear industry, pushing it to be fashionable. Shapewear comes in all shapes and sizes, with shaping bras, thigh slimmers, control briefs, bodies and more. Each piece is specially designed to help smooth, contour or boost that area. We also love that shapewear is for all women. At Belle Lingerie, shapewear comes in size XXS to 7XL, so we are pretty confident you will find something that is perfect for you.

Say cya to VPL - Bodies, shapewear briefs and thigh shapers can also help you banish the dreaded visible panty line. There is nothing worse than throwing on your new trousers, just to find you can clearly see your underwear at the back. Shapewear is ofter designed to look seamless with cleverly placed stitching. Shapewear also tends to sit lower, below your cheeks or even halfway down your leg. Control briefs and thigh slimmer are also usually made from silky and smooth fabric which adapts to your body and won't scrunch up. All of this equals a smooth appearance with no VPL surprises.

Occasionwear sorted - Shapewear can be the perfect lingerie solution for special occasions. Weddings, graduations, presentations etc, whatever it is, we are sure you want to look your best. If you are the centre of attention or standing in a crowded room, the last thing you want is to start feeling uncomfy or conscious about the way you look. Shapewear can give you peace of mind as you know you are held in, feeling secure and ready to take centre stage. Occasions often come with awkward outfits which you really wouldn't wear regularly. That can make it hard to find lingerie that works with the outfit. Shapewear can be the simple solution!
